Plot Summary


Due to the invasion of Disas—enigmatic creatures of soil from the land of the dead—mankind, who was on the verge of crisis, was saved by the efforts of magical girls who had obtained a mysterious magical power...

Three years later, new incidents suddenly occur, tearing apart the normalcy of the girls who had each returned to their normal lives. The saviours of humanity, those magical girls called "The Magical Five" now live each day fighting for their lives, even as they are trifled with by fate...

As someone who read the manga, I will give a fair warning to those who are super sensitive and easily get offended to certain mature stuff. I'm not sure if it'll be censored or even animated later in the story but all I can say is:

Are we talking just a set up event, or are we talking, a lot of the series is dedicate to this.

Is this something like Magical Girl Raising Project or Magical Girl Site, where it's just despair, despair, despair, just for the sake of it?

i don't mind a little nastiness to set up a story, but if that's all it's going to be about, then I don't even want to bother with it.

I’ve read up to vol.5, so far it’s only happened once. Leaning more towards MGRP but more suggestive themes. If we’re going by the 2 episodes per volume rule this part will happen around episode 8-10? It was kind of sudden but not as shocking as you know what.

Ugg...I may avoid it then....I've avoided Magical Girl Raising Project for the same reason I am avoiding Shield Hero....just a bunch of unlikable characters in an ever escalating loop of violence and revenge.

It ain't for everyone. To be honest, what got me hooked to this originally was the military + magical girl set up. I did collect the manga up to date and it's not the best but I find it entertaining.

I'm pretty much in for Call Of Magical Girl Duty pretty much. Gonna pick up the manga for sure depending on where the anime stops.

The first episode is now up on Crunchyroll: https://www.crunchyroll.com/magical-girl-spec-ops-asuka/episode-1-the-magical-girl-comes-back-781338

Episode 1

And it starts off with some kickass BGM and the magical girls in action as a preview of things to come.

Asuka sure does show off her athleticism, first in that basketball game, and then showing that jerk who threw a cigarette butt on Nozomi's foot that he should have apologized. She got that from her time as a magical girl that she quit because her parents were killed. But she's slowly coerced into returning with a lot of violence going on around the world, and when Nozomi was threatened by Kim. That was pretty bloody with all those cut-up body parts. That just goes to show that it's a bad idea to piss off a magical girl. While the storytelling wasn't exactly the best, the action is really something, all while it builds up quite a lot of intrigue now that Asuka has returned to the battlefield.

Ep.1

This is another series that i already read some of the source material. The first episode showed us what is happening in the world and how Asuka and four other magical girls defeated the final boss. Even though we didn't exactly see what happened it. There is a three year time skip and Asuka now in high school is trying to live a normal life. However she can't get away from being a magical girl that easy.

One thing i never liked about this series is how ridiculous the girls breast are. Even when they were in small school they had big breast. Another is fan service so expect to see more of it down the line. Also expect to see more action and body parts. If this is something you don't like to see than you better drop it now cause there will be more than what you saw in the first episode.
