Synopsis

For many individuals in N-City, playing the popular social role-playing game Magical Girl Raising Project is as close as they could come to being a real magical girl. However, for some rare players, that dream can become a reality. One such girl is Koyuki Himekawa, who receives a notification one night that she has been selected to become a magical girl, her in-game avatar Snow White.

As Koyuki and other chosen players in the city begin helping those in need, they all receive yet another notification: the admins have decided that they want to reduce the number of magical girls. Whoever collects the least amount of Magical Candies—which are awarded for their magical girl activities—in their competition each week will lose their powers. But when a real-world tragedy happens to the first player that drops out, they are shown the repercussions of losing their abilities. As more participants inevitably lose the competition and more twisted rules are added, the girls soon realize that their "contest" is actually a desperate fight for survival.

This anime in 8 words: “Anticlimactic Magical Girl Death Game With Wasted Potential ”

Yes, this is just another magical girl dark twist anime. Unfortunately, it's not that great of one either and here's why:

This is what a series looks like when it tries to have emotional shock factor, but fails because it's only 12 episodes long and has too many characters. When characters die, most of the times you won't even care because there are too many of them and you don't ever know their backstory until the episode of their death. This series has a damsel in distress, innocent, naive main protagonist. There read more

“I kinda like it when a lotta people die.” --George Carlin

Sometimes, all you need is kill. Ing. That’s what I was looking for with Magipro. I was a little stressed, you see. I was in a weird spot at the beginning of the season: pets dying, mothers hospitalized, promotions at work, dads who live forty miles away and need rides to work another forty miles away. Oh my god. I have RESPONSIBILITIES?!

Tough times call for easy viewing. I wanted something that I didn’t have to think about. Something fun. And the synopsis of Magipro fit the bill. Magical girls killing each other? Don’t care read more

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, yet another entry for the "dark and edgy" as well as unnecessarily sophisticated "mature" magical girl genre.

The Magical Girl Raising Project took a creative risk to introduce the completely original and unique concept (*major sarcasm) of the dark side of Mahou Shoujo‘s to audiences. Plot: Girl(s) with ``surprise surprise’’ problems in the real world distract themselves from their problems by playing a free to play (*with micro transactions) magical girl game on their android or IOS devices. But! Get this, in the game The Magical Girl Raising Project, one in tens of thousands of people to get to be a read more

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku - One more "Mahou Shoujo" to the collection

I realize there are "mahou" animes but I do not understand why they have to be so bad.
Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku is an example of how a "magical" anime manages to be tragic.

The synopsis tells us that there is a social game called "The Magical Girl Raising Project" that allows one of them to be chosen to be a "magic girl" within a group of people (hence the tone "mahou" of the whole anime), which means she will have extraordinary physical abilities as well as magical powers that differentiate from the rest from read more

Is Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku Anywhere Near as Good as Madoka Magica?

Magical girl shows aren't usually this dark and gory. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica was the first to add some darkness to the usual glittery nature of the genre, and Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku seems to want to try and recreate that formula for success.

The Fall 2016 Anime Season Has Some Actually Good LN Adaptations!

Light Novel adaptations have had something of a poor reputation over the past couple of years in anime. For every actually good one, there are 5-6 terrible highschool harems led by Yuji Everylead the Bland. But this upcoming Fall 2016 anime season looks like it might be the exception....maybe?
