I’ve been watching The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a good anime, but, after eight episodes, I needed another break from all that scheming and infidelity. So, I decided to watch a few more episodes of Dai Mahou Touge.
If you’re looking for an innocent little magical girl anime, Dai Mahou Touge is not for you. However, if you want dark humor, parody, and violence, look no further! Tanaka Punie-chan is a princess from Magic Kingdom, blonde, cute, and… so violent and scary, she scared off a big god-beast-thing. I’m telling you, this girl is on par with Toriko the gourmet hunter (yeah, on par with the same Toriko who beat up a level 8 Baron Crocodile and ate it all in one setting)!
The fun starts with the opening theme, where we see clips of Punie-chan in front of burning buildings – including the landmark largest wooden house. Oh dear! The actual content is great, too, each episode unveiling a new parody of magical girl anime with as much bone-cracking as you can handle. It has killer moves, evil little sisters, and even suicidal vegetables. No, Potato-dono, don’t do it! Your have so much to live for! And then the credits roll, and you hear the absolute perfect battle cry music, accompanied by fiery war scenes. You simply must see Dai Mahou Touge for yourself because, as the end song states, “There is honor in bending bones to their limit!”
