Humanity's battle of many years with the kaiju, giant monsters, has finally come to an end. Now that Earth has entered an age of peace, girls with the souls of kaiju have begun to appear, giving them the ability to transform into kaiju. They are known as the Kaiju Girls, and this is the powerful, transient, beautiful, and at times easygoing story of the strange fate these girls bear.
With a heap of magical girl anime's every season; the genre lacks ideas and inventive ways to attract the viewer. Kaiju Girls is one of the examples of a magical girl show with no obtrusive ideas but relies mainly on presenting itself as a short comedic show, it wasn't anything special. Sure it was cute and all but that's all it has to offer. That raises the question, was it bad? In which I respond. No it wasn't it was fun to watch with some nice comedy, the anime doesn't focus on a story line and much less action of a magical girl show, but rather the everyday lives of magical girls protecting their city from whatever may come about, as I've stated before this is more of a comedic eccentric show meaning there aren't many action scenes, as presented by the art style action wouldn't necessarily work. I personally enjoyed Kaiju Girls for it's cute style and comedic moments but due to it not being able to compare compare to some of the other more popular and attractive series this season and the magical girl genre overall it won't stand out that well.
Overall it still felt like an enjoyable experience, and if you are looking into an anime with a short run time, cutesy chibi animation and a focus on comedy then you will most likely enjoy this anime; though as I've stated before that's all there really is. From the studio who created the Re:Zero chibi shorts this felt just as refreshing as they did. A nice way to tone down from the more action packed and intense anime is to watch short series; but due to run time and lack of proper exposition this is sadly all the anime results to. A mildly enjoyable comedic short with no coherent story.read more
