A magical girl show is more than just a trope, but what happens when an outsider points out the ridiculousness that flows throughout the anime.
Let’s see what makes it so special from the other magical girl anime.
2. Popularity of the Show
An anime that aims to find out how a magical girl must look from an innocent bystander’s perspective is Seizei Ganbare Mahou Shoujo Kurumi.
It’s Season 1 was broadcasted in 2017, and it did well for a short gag anime to warrant a Season 2 in 2019, and a new season on its way this October.
The show’s humor is stuck on a thin line of like and hate for the fans. Some dislike it because of the extreme ‘edge’ in the episodes, with all the blood and ‘chunni’ moments.
While some love it from the get-go, the comedy in the show revolves around making fun of the common tropes of a Mahou Shoujo genre.
The famous ‘I’m late for school’ scene can be seen in the first episode as the three protagonists are seen in the background, critiquing the entire thing’s stupidity.
The anime has a wacky style of comedy like Nichijou, and they bring out the dark fact how the innocent magical girls are capable of violent brutality against monsters.
Since the show is just 4 minutes per episode, give it a try! The manzai comedy is hilarious, and it doesn’t take up much time.
Let’s get into this in detail by looking at the plot.
3. Expected Plot
The anime centers around Kurumi Azuchimomoyama, a normal 14-year-old girl who attends Egaogaoka Middle School.
One day, an angel named “Devilun” that looks like a Tasmanian devil, appears before her and grants her the power to be the Beautiful Magical Girl Dinosaur Angel Warrior ‘Prima Angel.’
He tells her to fight the evil “Darkness Whales” organization using that power. She proceeds to indiscriminately take out Darkness Whales members with weapons that stink of blood.
All the while, the protagonists are three boy classmates of Kurumi who watch the entire thing while not doing anything.
The start of any gripping story is its imagery, so let’s see how they look like!
4. New Key Visuals and Trailers
A new key visual and video announcement has been released.
The video announces the release of a Season 3 of Do Your Best Magical Girl Kurumi and will be broadcast on BS11 from October 7th, 2020.
The website, on the other hand, released the character designs, cast, and theme songs.
The jaw-dropping cliched scenes and the gags surrounding them have always been a plus point among the fans. But are they ready for yet another season?
5. Response to the Upcoming Season
The general reaction to the upcoming season is overwhelmingly positive.
The main attraction, for the fans, isn’t the minimalistic visuals or animation. But the to-the-point sarcastic humor that permeates the show.
Seizei Ganbare Mahou Shoujo Kurumi is a great anime, but it is an acquired taste for some.
It requires one to be an avid shoujo anime watcher to get the show’s absurdity; otherwise, the jokes would fall flat.
Now that we know how the upcoming series would look like, let’s discuss the staff creating it.
6. Anime Production
Let’s look into the technical details of this upcoming anime to check what influences the production of ‘Do Your Best Magical Girl Kurumi.’
I. About the Studio
Pie in the sky has animated the previous two seasons of Ganbare Kurumi too.
It has also created other short/gag anime like B Rappers Street, Aware Meisaku-kun, Gra-P & Rodeo, and more.
II. Animation Quality
The anime has good pastel animation to highlight the magical girl trope even more, and everything is ‘cuter,’ even the monsters!
Despite the bright animation, the fight scenes are brutal and don’t even try to censor the gallons of blood flowing out every episode.
This contrast makes the viewers overlook the poor animation, but what would you expect from a 4-minute gag anime?
Matsumoto Keisuke directed the show from its very start, and funnily enough, also voiced the Devilun character.
He also directed anime like Super Short Comics and Cosmos Pink Shock.
IV. Theme Songs
The opening song of the first season, Girls Only Miracle, was performed by Mia Regina.
While the voice actors of the trio tsukkomi sung the ending songs of both the seasons.
Season 3 will see Mia Regina returning to perform the opening song, Shumatsu e no Tengeki. Lantis is contributing the music.
Let’s see if the new OST can surpass its predecessors or not.
I. Season 1
This season sets the world for the gag comedy. It introduces Kurumi and what kind of magical girl she is while the protagonists react to her antics.
Every episode plot is usually about something silly; a monster appears, introduces itself, and then Kurumi ends it in weird bloody ways.
The anime doesn’t follow a plot as much as it takes a dig at the other magical girl tropes.
It is played up even more with the ‘Power of Friendship,’ cliché in the last episode, where three Prima Angels appear from nowhere as supposed rivals of Kurumi, the Prima Pink, and become allies to defend against the evil forces.
II. Season 2
Season 2 didn’t have a great start as Season 1 did, and it was kind of overshadowed by Season 1 as a whole.
It followed the same monster-meet-monster-die process for the new episodes, but they also added new Prima Angels in the Season.
There are a lot; Mikan, Mizuki, Tsubame, Wakaba, and more that come in here and there.
There is also a male character who helps out Kurumi and her friends, Jacket Gentleman (Tuxedo Man vibes anyone?).
The only thing better than Season 1 was the ending song. It is catchy and has crazy lyrics and performed by the seiyuu of the trio tsukkomi.
