The upcoming original anime ‘Mahō Shōjo Magical Destroyers’ is a chuunibyo’s dream come true. It has an otaku hero fighting to protect his culture with three magical girls in a hard rock-themed world.
While the concept itself sounds like many weebs’ nightmare, the anime’s trailers and teasers can convince you otherwise.
The latest trailer for ‘Mahō Shōjo Magical Destroyers’ highlights the magical girl named Anarchy, who is probably one of the coolest characters ever. It also confirms the anime’s debut in 2023.
Staying true to its essence, the video starts strong with some hard rock beats while debuting Anarchy as a rebellious girl. She also looks like someone who makes irrational decisions or performs life-threatening stunts for fun.
Anarchy is one of the three girls who support and adore the Otaku Hero fighting an authority that has banned the otaku culture. The other two magical girls are named Blue and Pink and are much like Anarchy regarding opinions and practices.
The trailer has also revealed the brilliant cast that will be voicing these four characters, and here it goes:
|Otaku Hero||Makoto Furukawa||Saitama (One Punch Man)|
|Anarchy||Fairouz Ai||Jolyne Kūjō (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)|
|Blue||Aimi||Suiko (Cardfight!! Vanguard)|
|Pink||Tomoyo Kurosawa||Göll (Record of Ragnarok)|
Otaku Hero, the protagonist, is exactly like you thought he was. With an embarrassing sense of fashion and an aura of a typical weeb around him, the Otaku Hero looks like he came straight out of a harem.
However, the anime’s first key visual confirms that despite his appearance, he is a revolutionary hero who deserves the respect he gets.
We also have new staff members joining, and here’s the list:
|Director||Hiroshi Ikehata||FLCL Progressive|
|Assistant Director||Masao Kawase||Kiratto Pri☆Chan|
|Script Writer||Daishiro Tanimura||Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet|
|Production Studio||Bibury Animation Studio||Azur Lane|
Jun Inagawa, the creator, is credited for the anime’s story and character design. Since Inagawa is an underground artist and producer, he’s sure to bring something new and exciting to the table, and I can’t wait to see it.
