However, due to the help of a spirit realm treaty organization that was tortured in the underworld, humanity obtained the only means to bring themselves back from extinction. That was magical girls. These girls who are in possession of mighty magical powers are able to sustain massive amounts of damage while guiding humanity to victory. Finally, the struggle ended. However, even then, a new battle was beginning involving international crime, indiscriminate terrorism, civil war, disputes, and more...
Three Episode Impression
Asuka had hoped to live a normal life, but the trauma of her previous combat experience remains with her. Different from your typical magical girl anime, this series deals with dark topics like PTSD in a more realistic way. Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka centers around Asuka and the other surviving magical girls, though the girls have been introduced slowly each episode. The series has an interesting dichotomy, in that it includes plenty of fan service of Asuka and her friends, yet also has moments like in episode one, where Asuka flashes back to when she first came home to discover her parents have been dismembered by some of the Disas monsters. Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it promises to be even more gruesome and bloody in the future. A much more militaristic take on a magical girl anime, this series could turn out to be the dark horse of the season!
