Synopsis

Due to the invasion of Disas—enigmatic creatures of soil from the land of the dead—mankind, who was on the verge of crisis, was saved by the efforts of magical girls who had obtained a mysterious magical power...

Three years later, new incidents suddenly occur, tearing apart the normalcy of the girls who had each returned to their normal lives. The saviours of humanity, those magical girls called "The Magical Five" now live each day fighting for their lives, even as they are trifled with by fate...

“Magical Girl fights terrorists”.

Simple, like all the great things. Predator was famously pitched as “Rocky fights Alien”, and that pitch led to a greatest dumb action flick of all time, because people who made it understood what they are doing and why. Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka is just like that.

To dig deeper, it can be described as post-dark mahou shoujo - by the same logic as post-cyberpunk genre. The classic sci-fi authors believed that progress will lead to an utopian society. Then came cyberpunk, saying: that’s naive, technological advances will only worsen societal problems and lead to horrible dystopias. And then post-cyberpunk replied: that’s also read more

Dropped at EP4.

This anime had a lot of strong points going for it, and managed to ruin every single one of them with overt appeals to sex and violence which reduced it to a childishly bad experience. The ero fanservice is immediate and constant, with every woman character having constant boob shots. In the swimming episode they lingered on a pointless buttshot for like four seconds. The characters are all just fighting concepts given scantily-clad form. The entire draw of this anime seems to be seeing scantily clad women inflict graphic violence onto others, or to have graphic violence inflicted upon read more

One of the top 3 anime this season. (Along with Dororo ofc)

This is not a series about shallow torture porn or violence, but an illustration our post war situation in real life. The 2nd World War is over decades ago, but it doesn't mean the world is peace again, and everyday somewhere there's someone who's suffering. Soldiers and police can't take break and retire just because the war is over because threat of terrorists and other malicious figures still roam around the world everywhere, and no-one is really safe.

This anime does not shy away from the brutality of combat , fighting, and even its read more

Off model: the anime.

They blew the budget on ep 1 and it's been downhill since.

There's dark magical girl anime, and then there's whatever this is--some kind of anti terrorist task force with magical girls, and they will kill your ass.

So ep 1 opens up with Asuka, some kind of shell shocked magical girl veteran of some terrible magical war where giant stuffed animals literally ripped people and her friends to bits who is now trying to get back to a normal life. The pacing is great, character design is great, it's even believable how the most ordinary things set her PTSD off, and how she's read more
