Synopsis

In 2008, the Japanese government began hunting people who identify as otaku in an effort to protect the country's culture. In just one week, the enforcement agency known as the SSC captured almost every otaku by force and confiscated their memorabilia. One passionate man calling himself Otaku Hero refuses to allow this agency to do as they please: he raises a resistance army made up of other displaced geeks who band together to help defend their culture.

Three years later, the fires of rebellion wane as all hope seems lost for otakus. Spurred on by his ally—the magical girl Anarchy—Otaku Hero commands the resistance in an effort to reunite Anarchy with the other two other magical girls: Blue and Pink. By combining the power of this trio, the resistance may be able to defeat the SSC and save otaku culture for everyone.

Imagine a world where otaku culture was banned, and you couldn’t like what you wanted to like. Quite the dystopia am I right? As one would expect, this was quite the oddity of a show, and it definitely delivered in how insane it was. The animation reminded me of some Trigger/Gainax anime like FLCL for example, along with how fast paced and insane some of it was. The story is admittedly very messy, but for a show that doesn’t really take itself seriously at all, it works for what the show was trying to go for. The creator, Jun Inagawa, certainly cooked with this one, ...

Mixed Feelings
Mahou Shoujo Magical Destroyers is an interesting one. It’s an experimental anime that attempts to make an appeal to its broader otaku-orientated audiences while also composing a social commentary about the otakus and its culture. Siding mostly with sympathy for otakus and the cruelty of being ostracized for liking anime and its subcultures, Magical Destryers desperately wanted to convey a guilt-driven fantasy for the unfairness of being misrepresented and illy treated by a larger, ambitiously as well as ambiguously presented “societal”’ forces that want to eradicate them from the face of Japan.

Set in a fictional timeline of the year 2008, the Japanese Government, ...

"Gobo, gobo gobo gobo gobo, gobo gobo gobo gobo gobo! Gobo gobo!"
Translated: "We are the Mahou Shoujo...Magical Destroyers we mean! We are the last hope for the Otaku who support us, and we'll fight to the death of those who dare oppose us!"

In 2001, from the brillant minds of the former Gainax and Hideaki Anno's protégé Kazuya Tsurumaki, Fooly Cooly a.k.a FLCL was released to the masses, and even some two decades later, the bizarre, surreal hodgepodge coagulation of a show is still being talked out to this very day for being ground-breaking in its own right due in part to its symbolic content, unusual ...
