Everything is pretty much as expected.
That’s all, folks.
From now on, I will also include my individual episode scores, as well as the season average. I was keeping track of those anyway, so I might as well add them. All the scores for this season might look pretty low, and… well, they are. But by my standards a 6.5/10 show is still watchable, even if I’m not really invested in it. And that sums up most of these shows pretty well.
Mahoiku, or Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, or Magical Girl Raising Project, is not a good show. This doesn’t exactly come as a surprise, as we live in a world where “magical girls except dark” is a genre all of its own, and naturally draws the attention of lazy, incompetent light novel authors everywhere who all think they’re being original and subversive. But as I watched the whole thing from start to finish, one thing in particular stood out to me among all the usual crap, and that’s how bad the main character is at being a main character.
