Review by Clark A.
Though it aired recently, Magical Girl Raising Project seems poised and to be fade into the background and dismissed in most corners as derivative. It openly shares commonalities with popular works that even some mainstream audiences will be wise to. Viewers undeterred by the theme of this show’s surface elements, though, might just appreciate the tale’s individual strides in such areas as world building, storytelling, and characterisation.
That’s ultimately where Magical Girl Raising Project thrives. Its structure is undeniably similar to other popular works, but it revels in toying with expectations both small and large. Gradually, it even becomes innovative in its own right. The driving concept obviously lacks the shock and awe factor of its contemporaries, but the writers clearly knew this and thus weaved the show’s opening minutes and overall synopsis around it by opening with a teaser for the bloody events that eventually transpire.
