Magical Girl Raising Project – 10 – 12 [END]

Magical Girl Raising Project (4)

Tama for the MVP!

winter15-foshI was going to do a final audio recording, but my throat is trashed due to getting sick and during the week of Christmas?! Damn! Ah well gotta move on and push out this final review for one of my favorites of the season.


More Death!

Magical Girl Raising Project (2)

Eye think you should stop killing people!

After Cranberry killed La Pucelle I didn’t think anyone had the power to stop her, but out of all characters to land the killing blow on Cranberry it went to Tama? Seriously? Tama? Wow how the hell do you go from being the most badass magical girl to end up killed by one of the weakest magical girls? Then again I’ve said in past posts/recordings if the girls used their odd powers in unique ways they can be quite deadly! Like Tama who can scratch you resulting in you being blown apart?! Sadly Swim Swim wasn’t as impressed by Tama taking down Cranberry like I was which made Tama’s death so freaking sad and depressing. Yeah I get that Swim Swim’s super secret identity was exposed and she was taught by Ruler that it’s bad news if they know who you are in the real world which is funny since she used that tactic against Alice! Damn now i’m sad thinking about Alice, but anyway I thought Swim Swim and Tama were at least friends? Then again i’m gonna assume that Swim Swim has no friends anyway? Not that anyone cares because good god she is quite horrible; however i’m gonna bet money that some people didn’t really see Swim Swim as being truly “evil” instead they probably feel that she was somehow misguided by Ruler? I suppose I can see it that angle regarding Swim Swim’s mental state and it also doesn’t help the fact that Fav is the ultimate master of deceiving people or should we point fingers at Cranberry since she set the whole death game up after winning the previous magical girl game? Who knows! At least most of us can agree that it was great to see Ripple finally get her sweet revenge on Swim Swim for killing Top Speed so ha! Burn in hell you evil LOLi!

Final Thoughts


Wow Magical Girl Raising Project was awesome! It managed to deliver on the things I originally wanted as far as being violent and dark; however I’ve come to expect with these kinds of series they are quickly judged rather quickly as being a shitty copy of something far more popular because it was the “first” anyway Magical Girl Raising Project isn’t perfect! I can’t deny the fact that it took its sweet time to get to the real meat of the series, but I think it told a fairly decent story and the mystery about what Fav and Cranberry planned for the game after we learned they were working together was really addictive! As for the main character I never liked Snow White due to her dull “I love everyone” personality and about halfway through the series I wished that Ripple was the main character instead of Snow White, but at the same time I also hated Ripple at the start because she always seemed like she hated her “job” as a magical girl and the constant Tch from her was annoying; however after the death of Top Speed and becoming the personal trainer of Snow White I guess she learned to accept the job? Aside from that I had lots of fun with this series! It played with my heart a whole bunch and made me rage hard every time Swim Swim killed one of the girls! Seriously Swim Swim stop with the killing! Now we gotta wait and see if we get another season in the future or do you not want one? I certainly want another one.

    Snow White is not a dull character. It just that the small things that would make her character alive or sympathetic got left out in the adaption, like most of her thoughts. A few of her suffering and reaction also got downplayed. That last episode also got change a bit.

    It’s unfortunate she come off that way in the anime because anime did a lot of other thing right.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah I can tell even by not reading the novels, but the anime version just didn’t get a whole lot of time to do anything besides cry and complain about the game until she met Alice? After that point she started becoming more involved in the actual plot.

    So It Finish now huh?, I do enjoy this show kinda lot, even it’s has some sort of a flaw or some animation error there, it may not be as good as this show, (i look on this site anyways, and yes i do agree with it), but hey i don’t consider this a rip-off, i see a lot of Late night MG shows lately so why give some competition there and who knows, but then again it’s kinda rare to outwit it, or sometimes it’s impossible, but time will tell for that, also:

    Can’t Wait for the Second Season…BLACK NURSE

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yep its over! For now, but I have a feeling we might get more later? Just like Fav said there are always magical girls being recruited so the games can keep going.

  3. HannoX says:

    I think this would have been a better series if it only had 8-10 Magical Girls. That way they could have invested more time in developing the characters before the bloodbath started so their deaths would have had more meaning for the viewers. Also with so many deaths coming so fast once it started once more the deaths lose some of the emotional impact they could have had because the viewers are starting to be numbed by so many dying.

    I don’t think Swim Swim’s awful character was entirely due to the influence of Ruler. Fav did make a comment about her being defective or some such. I don’t think psychopaths suddenly become psychopaths in their teen years. I think even in childhood they show signs of what they will become. So I think Swim Swim had mental issues or personality defects before she came under Ruler’s influence. Ruler just magnified them.

    • skylion says:

      I was just thinking that instead of having; background explored, death revealed for so many of them in the space of one episode, they could have reversed that. They explore the background of the character, then that character kills another one, and the story goes from there. Is the killer happy, sad, angry, can they ameliorate it? Wish it away? And yeah, less characters with a cast this size is usually the first thing.

      Who would you cut? I could have done without the Angel Twins, not much there.

      • HannoX says:

        Yes, the Twin Angels could be done away with. A number of the characters were only one or two note characters, so basically you could cut down on the number of characters by combining a couple into one.

        I don’t remember the name of the first to die, but she really didn’t add much to the show. So she could have been done away with and have a more developed, meaningful character die.

      • Foshizzel says:

        Dude that happens in any TV series! When a character suddenly gets their backstory flushed out they are probably going to die! It happens a lot in The Walking Dead and certain episodes of Game of Thrones or they at least drop hints.

        YES OH MY GOD I would remove the twin angels, WinterPrison, Sister Nana, Sleepy Magical girl and probably the robot as well? Those are the girls id remove because their plots don’t effect much? Maybe the robot? She dies in front of Snow White only to reveal Alice and to show Snow White how fast the magical girls can die.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Right I completely agree 16 was a bit rough and it made some of the deaths pointless? As you said some of them we don’t get to learn about until they are about to die and by that time we dont feel for them when they go.

      Certainly not but you can’t deny that Ruler had some influences on Swim Swim, but also Fav was bending her to do his bidding as well! Aaand don’t forget she was a child and imo children are easy to sway! I don’t think she was a complete psycho; however to not feel anything when you kill somebody is also a bad sign…

  4. skylion says:

    I enjoyed watching the show if only for the design and the general approach, but like nanaya says above me, they left some things, things which really would have made the show come alive or pop.

    It was a bit “typical, really”. They would jump into a character’s background full bore for one episode, then kill that character at some point. That’s a safe way to play it, and it came of as forgone conclusion.

    I think the best thing I liked about it is that Ripple learned a great deal about herself, and when they did go into her background, they did’t kill her that episode, so I knew she would at least get to the final episode before the story killed her off. Which they did? Only you can’t keep a stupidly-sexy ninja down…so she ended up winning and she and Snow ended up pissing off the higher ups.

    Overall a good show, could have been better, saved by some great design, and Lerche’s good use of a budget in most places. Also it didn’t derp out and make stupid things happen, just didn’t take many risks…

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah it was a enjoyable watch from week to week once they dive into the death battles! I wish Snow White was better as the main, but I guess she came from the pink haired crybaby family tree so shes gonna boo hoo the entire time.

      Yar that happens especially when you gotta start from 16 and work your way down to 1? I fully expected some of the deaths to be fast and again once a backstory was revealed BOOM they die! Well sorta? Ripple/Snow White are the exception to that since derp they survived.

      Agreed Ripple learned a lot and as far as character growth goes she gained the most while Snow White learned the truth I guess? Also yeah pissing off the admins of the game cause fight da power!

      The only improvements id add would be more reveals on Fav? I wanted to see his true form…

    Fully translated Vol 1-7 of the Mahou LNs, Vol 8 in progress!

    Now we gotta wait and see if we get another season in the future or do you not want one?

    Future LN arcs reuse the battle royale setup, but with different plot settings leading up to it. For example, one arc involves a group of magical girl enforcers from the Magic World quarantining a city to find a murdering magical girl gone rogue. This doesn’t sit well with the local magical girls, who then make war with the enforcers.

    -Each new arc has an entirely new group of magical girl MCs to torment. However, characters from previous arcs make guest appearances there.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Coool thanks!

      Just saw on ANN they currently have no plans on a second season at the moment, but I’m sure it will happen eventually! The magical enforcers arc sounds good.

  6. BlackBriar says:

    A rough start but Magical Girl Raising Project did alright. A surprising aspect is the slain girls staying dead since magic being involved, there was some possible reversal lurking about.

    How Cranberry can be killed by someone like Tama? Simple: Underestimating an enemy with a unique ability, even if seemingly lacking in use, and it will be your undoing. Tama tears holes through space to dig around and she tore one through Cranberry’s chest and it expanded until the entire top half of her body disintegrated.

    Swim Swim definitely usurped the throne for most depraved character. Fav summed it up adequately saying she had some screws loose.

    Better late than never that Snow White decided to learn some offensive as opposed to remaining a defenseless target and Ripple being the instructor is a good fit. One thing I find odd is if Ripple can reattach her arm that was severed by Swim Swim, why is it her eye wound can’t heal?

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah it took a while to get off the ground.

      Oh I know it was just funny to me that Tama being the “coward” of the series was the one to take out Cranberry who imo is far stronger than any of the other magical girls, but course using her powers against someone proved super effective! Also i’m sure Tama didn’t have a plan to take out Cranberry.

      Yep Swim Swim has a lot of screws loose.

      I’m pretty sure Ripple is still missing her arm? At least it looked that way to me? I figured it probably won’t ever regenerate due to it being sliced off by a powerful magical weapon? That would also explain her eye not healing, but idk maybe i’m wrong? I’m curious what would happen if Ripple turned back into her human form would she have both arms and her eye healed?
