Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku maybe? Is this gunna be another death game like it was? Heck, fans of WIXOSS would like this series since there is a large danger posed to get the characters.

This is definitely deconstructed Mahou Shoujo. I am sure that this will be good like Madoka Magica was.

Synopsis

Asa Ayagiri is a middle-school student who bullied heavily at school, and at home by her extremely abusive older brother. One day, her computer in her room suddenly connects to a strange site called Mahou Shoujo Site (Magical Girl Site).

Asa receives a stick from Mahou Shoujo Site and becomes a magical girl. When she finds herself being pursued by fear due to the terrible bullying, she just has to use her stick and her tormentors unexpectedly disappear from in front of her eyes. They are then transported to a far-away place where they suffer a horrible death.

Aya is is reluctant to kill people and tormented with confusing feelings of guilt. While she struggles with this, Aya meets another like her who received a stick from Mahou Shoujo Site: Her classmate Tsuyuno Yatsumura. They are then dragged into the cruel fate that awaits life as a magical girl.

Three Episode Impression

As one of the darker series out this season, I have a lot of expectation out of Mahou Shoujo Site. Seemingly taking the influences of anime like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru, and Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, Mahou Shoujo Site immediately appears to be rather dark with its cute animation and dull colors, reminding us of similar anime that started off the same way. Even the OP is extremely dark with references to suicide and death. Then the first episode came out and we are left with heavy hearts as we see that Aya is bullied at home and in school for no reason at all except that she’s a convenient target. The frequent references to Aya’s suicidal mindset just further sets the anime up to be dark. As the episodes have worn on, though, Aya quickly loses this attribute and immediately becomes that shining hero who doesn’t wish to punish anyone, which is quite grating and does not feel realistic for someone with so much sadness in her life. You’d think she’d have some pent up hatred somewhere! With the latest episode, though, it’s hard not to give up on Mahou Shoujo Site which appears to have lost its direction with moments where it tries to be humorous and only some slightly morbid moments, which don’t seem logical like Aya’s classmate having her throat slit but still being alive. Could it possibly be that shallow with the jugular vein right there? Then there’s that cute idol who’s a dog idol and is able to control people with her panties (does this imply something about the idol industry?), but she has a rather psychopathic side to her as she desires revenge. There’s a lot of darkness clashed with what seem like attempts at humor and societal commentary that has me unsure of where exactly this anime is going. I guess at this point, I can only say: Proceed with caution.
