Asagiri Aya is a young girl who has fallen victim to bullies at her school. Looking for a way to escape her troubles, she looks to the internet for distraction, when a mysterious website called “Magical Girl Site” appears. Simply viewing the page is all it takes to hurtle Aya headlong into the deadly world of the Magical Girl Apocalypse. There, it’s fight or die, against a seemingly endless array of savagely adorable, frilly-skirted killing machines, each armed with magical powers and an unquenchable thirst for blood and chaos.

Welcome to the Edge! This anime has a long list of audiences it is not suitable for: Kids, Moms, Dads, Feint of Heart, Happy People, Normal People, Sane People, Your Friends, Siblings, Colleagues, Acquiantances. Face it: Even if someone you know did watch it, they wouldn't tell you. Magical Girl Site caters solely to your dark, malevolent, twisted side and it does so pretty well. Better than Goblin Slayer for example, or Madoka Magica or any other entry that's got the Dark Fantasy label pinned to it. Above all else it is evil and every time the plot could be reigned in by the author, it is not. Writhing down the slope of depravity like a derailing train descending the side of a mountain, it touches all the sickly sweet spots of a twisted mind. There is some light though, just to keep it interesting but in the end you are left standing gaping at the abyss. Story Clearly all the logic, sense and reason has been done away with in favor of evoking emotions in the viewer. It's a rollercoaster descend into darkness with some lighthearted and moe moments (Nijimin) just before it comes crashing down with distressing, vexing and anxious scenes (also Nijimin). Though the plot is well thought out and sometimes even clever, the count of loop holes, especially towards the end grows noticibly. Quality-wise it is somewhere in the middle between Madoka Magica and Magical Girl Raising Project. Animation Not too shabby. Everything is smooth. Not much is fancy. It conveys well what is has to convey. Of course it is sinister and rather explicit. Sound Pairs well with the animation. OP/ED are standard fare with one of the antagonists singing the OP in one of the episodes which is hillarious. Music is some well working slow / sad piano and strings underlining the endless, hopeless atmosphere. As are the Character voices, which are pleasently expressive. The voice of the main antagonist (Ryusei Nakao) although being remarkable, does not fit perfectly here. Characters This is a theme park of twisted characters, most notably the leading duo (some feint yuri vibes going on), the main's brother (there's no way to symphasize with him) and Nijimin (the naive genki girl whos personality was shattered). No more spoilers. Overall If you can enjoy a twisted setting in which twisted characters are pitted against each other, this is the show for you. A definately guilty delight. For everyone else: Stay clear.

Ticket pays for the whole seat but you'll only need the [] spoiler-free review Mahou Shoujo Site is an anime about little girls with big dreams. Wait, no, scratch that. It's about little girls in a nightmare whose dreams have been crushed by a memetic hydraulic press of dispair and depression. This anime is so... full of angst that it's almost offensive at times, and underwhelmingly weak at others. The combination is an unusual one but definitely disappointing. Following madoka magica's example of a dark magical girl anime, this starts out with a story that follows a young girl who's relentlessly bullied by the most hideous creations designed to be a parody of humanity, some bully girl who wants the MC to get raped, her brother who just wants to beat her up every day because he's a bad guy, and so many more shallow people. It's laughably handled, besides in episode 1 and later on when it's offensively bad. I've raged at this anime more than I care to admit. It continues on past the depressingly bad big brother point to her finding a website, the titular magical girl site, where you can become a magical girl. There are lots of magical girls, and they each have a "stick" that does something related to heir power or the plot. The main character can teleport people with hearts, or just parts of people. There's also someone who can cut herself with her stick and heal people with her own blood. Yeah. They were going for that kind of thing. The magical girls start out all as enemies fighting for supremacy at the admins requests to lead the world into a new era after destroying it. It takes a twist later on. *inhale* the characters. they are ugly. and THE BROTHER IS A SACK OF SHIT. HE IS AN ABSOLUTE C### WHO I WANT DESTROYED WITH A LAWMOWER. EVERY SCENE HE WAS IN *gets tired of holding shift and hits the caps lock* MADE ME WANT TO VOMIT. tHIS DOUCHE BAG OF DOUCHES AND DICKS IS SUCH A PAIN I WANT TO MEET HIS VOICE ACTOR AND ASK FOR A PUBLIC APOLOGY WITH MY FISTS FOR RAPING MY EARS WITH HIS IRRITATINGLY PUNCHABLE VOICE AND EVEN WORSE ON THE CREATORS OF THIS CHARACTER FOR CREATING THE WORST THING TO EVER GRACE ANIME IN ITS HISTORY. SORRY THRAWN. THIS GUY CAN GO CHEW ON A GRENADE. The rest are ok. The two main girls, asagiri and yatsumura, arent bad characters but they're pitiful and unlikable ones by this anime. They could have been a lot better but they set the bar that the rest of the girls fall somewhere under. There are a few more insuffrable ones with super bad reaction faces that are sorta funny though. The brother is of the main villains. He sucks. The end. The art and animation are ok. I won't praise them this time because the story and characters are too shit to make up for it. If you want an anime with a lot of sharp points and not a lot of value but a lot of darkness, this pointless pile of trash is for you. Or you could just go watch madoka magica instead. Up to you.
