Preliminary (14/69 eps)
Mahou Shoujo Spec-Ops Asuka is story about highschooler Asuka who is trying to fit in everyday life after taking part in military before. She is strongly against joining military again, but as the story progresses she realizes she doesn´t have much of a choice.

The art is outstanding, very clean and clear, so the reader knows immediately what is going on. As a bonus, every volume begins with color pages.

As for enjoyment ...

Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka started with a strong synopsis. Taking a new direction into the magical girl genre with a new dark theme, mixing more realistic idea of the magical girl trope.

The mascot fairy does actually contribute to the whole story in a meaningful way which is nice that it's not a merchandise and fan service character that lacks any other purpose.
