Asagiri Aya is a very pitiful middle school girl who has to deal with bullying at school as well as at home. She contemplates ending her life constantly, but then one day, she is brought to a website with a creepy mascot who offers her the chance of a lifetime. Aya is given the powers to become a magical girl. With her new powers, just how will Aya use them to better her life?

Major Similarities Between Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project) and Mahou Shoujo Site (Magical Girl Site)

1. Pure-hearted heroine

Right off the bat, if you love those idealistic and pure-hearted heroines like Snow White from Mahou Shoujo Ikuesei Keikaku, then you’ll appreciate Aya from Mahou Shoujo Site. Despite being abused, beaten, tortured, and nearly raped, Aya has an idealistic approach to how to use her power and strives to do better than some of the other magical girls. She’s a bit naive, but at least this isn’t one of those anime where the main characters are ready and willing to exact revenge in that whole anti-hero approach.

2. Darkness everywhere

Right from the start, you can tell that Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku is going to be dark with the ominous feeling that lurks at every corner. It doesn’t surprise you when it gets bloody the way Puella did. In a similar fashion, Mahou Shoujo Site is constantly dark and twisted especially with the first episode where we see Aya fighting thoughts about suicide and others beating on her for no reason. Mahou Shoujo Site begins by taking you to a new place where the darkness just sits heavily in your heart, but if that’s what you like about Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, then this is the anime for you.

SCMs have grown in popularity in the world of the underground allowing people to gamble their free will away in a game where all the rules are dictated by one of the players. Should you lose, your free will belongs to the hands of the winner.

Major Similarities Between Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project) and Dorei-ku The Animation

1. Eerie atmosphere

Much like Mahou Shoujo Site, there is a lot of eeriness and an ominous atmosphere that really keeps you on your toes. While Dorei-ku doesn’t pull off that feeling of a horror anime, you have that heart pumping moment where you just have to know what is coming next considering the premise of the anime. It’s a thriller anime and you just don’t know which way players will swing.

2. Battle Royale

Like Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, characters will fool you. Some characters who appear to be psychopaths may actually be more reasonable and just because others appear to be power hungry does not mean they are. It feels like a real battle royale as characters fight for their freedom and what they want, much like Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku. It’s not an actual battle royale anime, but it definitely feels like one if any anime were to this season.

Final Thoughts
