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.

I just got done watching this after recently also checking out Kiznaiver, though I don't compare the two a whole lot I do have one statement that I think was valuable to warrant this explanation. Kiznaiver is an interesting show and I suggest you watch it if you read this.

Magical Destroyers is a fascinating show that breaks the mold in many ways and while it's quality may be lacking in certain areas like the animation and pacing, it's music, art direction, and story surprised me in many delightful ways. It kept me guessing as to what reality was at every point, and I think the ...

You can only truly enjoy this show if you're a fan of Panty & Stocking.

That's a bit of an exaggeration, but I think it's true. I've never been one for otaku culture, so I can't speak for that aspect of the show's story, but I do love magical girls shows that subvert the typical genre. This show is essentially a parody of those type of magical girl shows, but it most heavily draws from Madoka★Magica and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. It does this to point where 2 of its main cast members are literally Stocking Anarchy and Madoka Kaname.
Blue almost looks identical to ...

This one is weeeeird, and not in a very fun way,

First and foremost, the OP and ED for this anime are great! The animation is so well done, and it encapsulates the story in a way I saw very few OPs do. The ED has one of my favorite songs, and both have this surreal vibe that if the rest of the show compromised with it, it would be so much better than it is. So, watch the OP and ED, they really are the best this anime gets!

As for the history, it is mediocre. It is somewhat surprising with its twists, and it foreshadows ...
