|“|| So, there are these invisible monsters that feed off of negative emotions. If these monsters grow powerful enough, they can influence human behavior, which results in crimes like murder.|
There's a small number of people who have the ability to see and fight the monsters. Only females can have this power. The show is about the magical girls who can see and fight the monsters.
Their power depends on how many admirers they have, so the magical girls are usually pop idols. All of them are actresses, singers, models, super-popular bloggers, and things like that.
Their power gets weaker when they're far away from their fans, so the Japanese magical girls stay in Japan, the American magical girls stay in America, and so on. Are you getting all of this?
If they stopped being popular, then they would lose their power - so they have to juggle their public celebrity life with their secret magical girl life. That's where it gets interesting.
The protagonist is a girl named Miyuki who isn't a celebrity, she's just the most popular girl in her school. The other magical girls look down on her because she's nothing like them.
The show is about Miyuki's struggle to cut it as a magical girl even though she's relatively weak, and none of the other magical girls respect her. Trust me, man, this show is freaking amazing.
I don't want to spoil it, but it gets REALLY GOOD once Miyuki starts getting stronger than some of the veteran magical girls, and they start...ah...just trust me, you NEED to watch this show.
One of the main characters is a swimsuit model who has millions of fans because she's super busty.
Magical Girl Pretty Miyuki!
If you saw the show, you'd understand!
— Sota during his conversation with Haruto during lunchtime on Monday.
|“|| Dude, you NEED to keep watching. It gets REALLY good about halfway through the first season.|
No, you don't get it! The first half of the show is there to TRICK people into THINKING that they're watching a typical magical girl show, and then, BAM, the plot twists start dropping!
Yyyyyes, technically, BUT! If you were planning to drop the show, then it was totally worth it! You need to understand this: Magical Girl Pretty Miyuki is a DECONSTRUCTION of magical girl shows!
It takes the concept of magical girls, and then applies it to real life. Like, how hard would your life actually be if you really were a magical girl? That's what the show is about!
Yeah, but, Miyuki does it differently! Trust me, dude - truuuuust me! Keep watching. You NEED to!
— Sota during his conversation with Haruto during lunchtime on Tuesday.
|“|| Have you been watching it?|
That's what makes it so good! It lays out all these tropes, and then it SUBVERTS the tropes!
I can't let you drop the show, dude! I need you to know that there's a payoff coming soon!
You don't get it, dude, you just don't get it! The show's creators are brilliant! Geniuses!
Oh man, I can't WAIT until you hit episode 7. I wish I could see the look on your face...
— Sota during his conversation with Haruto during lunchtime on Wednesday.
|“|| Aaaaand? Aaaaand?|
No way. You're just trying to ACT like you're unimpressed, but I know it surprised you!
That was SUBTLE FORESHADOWING.
— Sota during his conversation with Haruto during lunchtime on Thursday.
|“|| DUDE! Seriously?! Wh-what was your favorite part?!|
...Okay, yeah, but...what about the character development? The plot twists? The subversion of popular tropes? The deconstruction of the magical girl genre? The deep, philosophical introspection?
...you're not worthy...you don't DESERVE to watch Magical Girl Pretty Miyuki!
Don't talk to me.
