Aya Asagiri is a middle school girl who has problems both at school with bullying and at home from physical abuse by her brother. While browsing online, a website pops up on her computer featuring a creepy looking person. This person appears to take pity on her, and announces that she has granted Asagiri magical powers.
This show is awful. It touches upon a lot of heavy themes including but not limited to; bullying, domestic abuse, torture, rape, depression, and other such fun topics. However, not once does it feel the need to adress these topics in a serious manner. A lot of the abuse the main character seems to soak up like a sponge, and is only used as a way to make you sympathise with the girl. It’s essentially a guilt trip. What really doesn’t help is that the abusers are in no way written realistically. They’re not written as people with clouded judgement, or people who bend over
backwards to justify their own actions. They are written more like sadists; they simply enjoy abusing this poor little girl.
A lot of the major plotpoints thus far have also been lifted from another show, but for the sake of spoilers, I wont mention it. All I’m saying is that it is extremely easy to draw a lot of parallels.
The animation mostly serves its purpose, but it never enhances the experience. It’s a bit janky and goes off-model from time to time, and very often did I see something and think “there were so many better ways to animate that”. Sometimes the strange animation leads to some unintentional hilarity. If you’ve seen episode 2 you know the face i’m talking about. Art wise, the backgrounds are plain and the character designs are nothing new. Background characters tend to look pretty wonky too.
I tend to not notice music in anime unless it’s extremely good, and here I also took note of the music but for different reasons. The music is extremely distracting. The worst soundtracks are the ones where there’s a little girl chanting “la la la” as if it’s supposed to be a cheesy fake-deep horror show.
There were a few short moments, however, where I found myself pleasantly surprised. Some of the interactions between the main character and her blonde friend I find kind of charming, and occasionally (but very rarely) there’s some extremely strong visuals or really powerful facial expressions.
Overall the show is mostly just really boring. I’d only recommend it if you want to dissect it’s problems as a way to improve your own writing.
"People say my life has hit rock bottom, but I do not believe any of that."
-Our main bro while fapping to anime porn in episode 3.
This series has some serious issues. By this, I don't mean "flaws" or "cons", I mean real issues which are apparently caused by the author's mental health problems. This is the peak of insanity.
"Every day, all I think about is dying."
Our main character, who is the most pathetic looking girl imaginable, seems to be living in a world which is pretty much a fucked up place. All her school budies are literally evil bullies whose favorite past time seems
to be kicking her ass and destroying her life while smirking in the evilest way possible. At home, however, her role in the family seems to be the one of a boxing bag. Sometimes they do strangle her too. After witnessing this, I thought "woah, it's only a matter of time until she gets raped and gets her organs sold." ....And exactly 4 minutes later some dude forces himself in her. Oh, and btw, she has one thing in the world she actually likes. A cat. So naturally, some asshole just had to come and kill it because fuck this girl specifically. Did I mention they told her her cat is dead whilst she was getting raped? Well, now you know. Amazing.
At this point, it should be mentioned that this series should not be watched by people who can't tolerate with violence and fucked up shit because this is pretty much as far as anime can go with darkness. This series is mature and gore in a way which is mainly only accomplished in manga series.
"Every living thing that harms you, should disappear."
Just so happens to be, our heroine gets the access to a mahou shoujo powers via the power of the internet and starts her rampage towards every living thing, except cats. Sweet, sweet revenge will be served. It's satisfying as hell, and presented in a manner most similar to Lute Ryner's murder phase seen in one of the most epic anime series ever made, DenYuDen. Mahou Shoujo Site completely abandons moral values, social norms and heroism. It only cares about chaos and resolve. When it comes to series similar to it, it achieves exactly as much as shows such as Madoka Magica, Elfen Lied and Higurashi no Naru Koro ni, but being much more direct with its twisted world and characters, giving exactly as little value to human lives as the Gods seen in Gantz. At this point, I am impressed. Some people will of course meme that the show is edgy, mc the epitome of victimhood and some characters one-dimensional baddies. I get it. One can kill all the good things this show has to offer by clinging onto these thoughts. My advice, if you can, don't let general consensus ruin the fun.
The series also comes with the best live action ED seen since the 2nd season of Arakawa Under the Bridge. I just love seeing them girls dancing all around the place while animated sperm flies everywhere. When I saw that I thought this series is definitely 10-worthy and not a 9/10. A goddamn masterpiece. I highly recommend Mahou Shoujo Site for anyone who has the tendency of liking chaos and the fucked up stuff. Especially the fans of Becchin to Mandala should give this a go along the fans of series already mentioned in the review.
This show is horrific, in content and quality. It is genuinely so bad at being a serious show that it becomes enjoyable in its own ridiculousness. The studio is genuinely trying to make a good thriller, and that's why this is so entertaining. Think you know edgy? Think you know insane? Think again. Then think again again because every episode gets *edgier and more ridiculous* than the last.
The ED is SPERM FLYING THROUGH THE AIR WHILST LIVE ACTION IDOLS DANCE. How do you top that? Well, the show manages to, with another live action ED involving idols dressed up as dogs. Here's hoping for episode
5 the bitcoin idols turn up. The plot follows suit in one-upping itself in preposterousness but I want to refrain from spoilers because this is an experience you can only have once. However, let's be clear, the number of times I went "WHAT??" at the show is more than I can count on my fingers and toes. We're only at episode 4.
I like how funny this show is. Fantastic comedy. If you can tolerate blood etc. then I highly recommend this show as a great example of absurdism, and what *not* to do if you ever happen to write a serious story. Grab a beer, watch this with friends, enjoy it for what it is.
I don't really write reviews, So I don't really know what to write, however, I'll try to write everything that comes up in my mind and it should be useful
if you have never watched a Mahou Shoujo anime I think you will enjoy this show,
BUT IF YOU WATCHED A MAHOU SHOUJO ANIME BEFORE YOU WILL NOT REALLY ENJOY THIS SHOW BECAUSE IT'S COPY PASTED (I will explain it)
Story 6 :
The story is basically about a girl called Asagiri who lived an unfortunate life and got the chance to become a magical girl to change her life without knowing the consequences.
Years ago, one of
my friends told me about an anime called Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.
After finishing that anime I was amazed by the story and how deep it was, how the characters are and how strong and emotional the music is, I really enjoyed that anime.
As years passed, many "Mahou Shoujo" anime style showed up, and they were almost the same, nothing new. when I watched the first episode of Mahou shoujo site, I knew what was going to happen in the next episodes !. the story is very similar to Mahou shoujo Madoka Magica
This story is not bad but I gave it 6 because the plot is very similar to any other mahou shoujo anime, However, the events are different and how they use their powers is also different
The art is quite good, it never bothered me, however, it's not a 2018 art style
Sound 6 :
it's alright, I like these music backgrounds they put in the dramatic scenes, and I'm just in the 4th episode I think that more soundtracks will show up in the next episodes
Talking about the characters, I didn't like that ALMOST EVERYONE OF THEM ARE PSHYCO.
And I think that we have seen Asagiri's and Yatsumura's characters in every mahou shoujo anime, the main character is always a week and a very emotional girl, and her friend is strong and doesn't have emotions. If you have watched Mahou shoujo madoka magica you would know what I mean.
I gave it 7 because it will be a very good experience for a person who never watched something like that
