>boys can be magical girls now
Holy shit, is this the beginning of genderbending mahou shojo trend?
Just who is the target audience of gender-bender anyway?
Yuri fans are going to shun this because they like actual girls, and het fans are going to shun this because they like dicks, so who are they even trying to appeal to?
It's not just romance though, what purpose does the genderbending serve in the story?
Why wouldn't those characters just be female, or actual male mages?
It's obviously just a plot device for the sake of fanservice, but it just seems like an odd choice for it, it's not like there are many anime fans (that I know of) asking for glorified trannies.
Boys becoming Magical Boys is better than becoming female.
Why we can't have mahou shounen?
I miss when mahou shoujos had male love interest.
>Show me another genderbending mahou shojo
>Do not include any series that potentially could include genderbending mahou shojo
This is an absolute fact.
Clearly it's so niche that there's a movie currently airing in Japan that's on-track to outsell Princess Mononoke.
Yup, clearly zero appeal to the mainstream.
The three guys from the last part.
Everyone has imagined what it would be like for the opposite sex at least once in their life. Why do you think so much futa shit exists.
I want her to sit on my lap so I can cuddle her
as for the genderbend guy, he gets to bathe with the girls atleast
I would have huge boobs and rub it in other girls faces
Then they can make jokes like "But you were a guy, it's not fair!"
girl makes a mahou shoujo
>classic magical girl
boy makes a mahou shoujo
>always ready for a gang fight
I was surprised at how tame most of the outfits and the transformation sequence were. This was the closest thing to fanservice
If I was a magical girl I would want to be a hot blooded tomboy type.
They don't make shoujo anime anymore....
Boys cannot be magical GIRLS. They are biologically inept for the work, in fact, most boys don't want to be magical girls, because they know its not for them.
Fucking genderstudies are going to ruin the magical society, just look at male-led societies and see if there is any magic in them.
>won't the kids just find out when the plot starts to make no sense at all?
This raises the ancient question:
What happens if you impregnate him and he tries to turn back?
His body is altered by magic. One would think that, due to the unstable nature of magic, the included liquids would be lost to some limbo.
For disgusting purposes though, it'd be a pregnant boy because the cells still exist, but in a state that has no unaltered version. If you think about it, egg cells in women change over time, and have already changed the moment a sperm cell makes contact. Let's say he turned into a pure virgin when transformed, but was impregnated; the cell structure has changed, and can't be reverted since the altered cell doesn't have an "original" form.
tldr, it wouldn't matter in a light-hearted setting, and it would provide a pregnant male in a deviant setting.
Going by madoka magica rules, his pregnant body stays pregnant and his soul just goes back to his male body, right?
.....I can't help it.
I have to ask.
The edge is spoiled in the show's description. They're supposed to start killing each other soon or something.
How edge are we talking? I heard like only the MC makes it out, so everyone kills each other. Is the violence mostly self contained secret war shit, or do we get bitches attacking during broad daylight not caring about collateral damage?
The novels are ongoing right?
So at least they won't all slaughter each other so fast.
will the magical girl (male) era save anime?
First volume (which is the one being adapted), is about these 16 girls. The next volumes are about other girls, though the ones that survived the first volume make appearances.
It wasn't that surprising. The voice was a dead giveaway even if they hadn't made a point to include an otherwise unrelated flashback of a boy she knew who liked mahou shoujo.
Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone in one of my very specific fetishes.
>Huge otaku virgin loser neet MC is suddenly transported to another world where he becomes a magical girl (male)
I can see it already
>be a guy
>dream to be a magical girl
>become a magical girl
>swear to become protector of childhood friend who is also a girl and magical now
>will probably lose to dick
It was over the moment he traded his D for a V
What was she doing here?
I wonder why his outfit is mostly yellow and with big boobs.
>Cow tits is a trap
>Actual girl is flat as a board
THEY CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH THIS
I'm a huge pussy who can't handle darkness in his shows.
I did some light Googling, but couldn't find a synopsis for the series. Could someone spoil it for me?
Will the characters who die stay dead, or will they somehow be brought back? Am I going to have to stick with Yuuki Yuuna as the only mahou shoujo not explicitly for children that has a 100% good end?
Not really. In fact, I've went through Mahou Shoujo of the End and Genei wo Kakeru and they are much boring than Futari wa and CCS.
Of course, that doesn't mean that there are shitty MG concepts like in Wedding Peach.
Apparently, the ones behind the app that gave way to the characters getting magical girl powers is because they were planning something to the magical girls who survive.
Why does this magical girl (male) look like a King Arthur (female)?
>sees this as soon as the show starts
>hurrr will it be dark??//?
A magical girl car advertisment has no right to be as great as Pleiades was.
The best part is how she keeps staring at it even after he gives her the "my eyes are up here" stare.
I just hope it isn't boring.
There are two kinds of memorable shows: Great shows, and trainwrecks.
At least with a trainwreck, you can remember something about it. A boring show would just be a waste of time.
I was sort of looking forward to this from the synopsis but if those spoilers are indeed true then damn, guess this'll be the weakest magical girl cartoon airing in China this quarter.
It's best to not think of this as an actual mahou shoujo show.
It's just a magical battle action survival game show where the characters happen to be girls with magical powers. The only genre standard you'd expect from mahou shoujo here is the frilly costumes. Hell, even before they degrade into the edgy murderfest shit, the conception of mahou shoujo put forth in universe is more or less just some kind of toku. They're just Good Deed Rangers that then go crazy and murder each other, like some kind of edgy, genderswaped kamen rider.
this is a good question. imagine the doujins this could make
>Sou is in the girl body and has super hot lesbian sex with Koyuki
>Then Sou switches back into the male body and rails Koyuki's slit til they both cum
At least we knew it was going to be edgy from the opening scene, no bait and switch shit. But I guess that would be hard for an adaption.
Also, it's sad that people on /a/ refer to plot situations like this as Hunger games instead of battle royale
>Not genderbending. He's a dude at all times, even with the skirt.
>Grab La Pucelle's tail
>It pops off
>He/She runs away like a Frilled Lizard while screaming
I have no idea why I imagined this, since I know Frilled Lizards don't have detachable tails, but fuck me I laughed at the thought.
>all these people calling Ripple Ninja Homura when Ninja Homura already exists
>all these pathetic losers who want modest breasts
I would have gigantic rude cowtits with huge puffy inverted nipples
My nipples could be fucked and I would absorb semen for power
>Snow White starts "helping" men out with their sexual frustration due to hearing their thoughts with her power
>eventually leads to the predictable conclusion of being gangbanged by fat old men
>La Pucelle finds out and tries to rescue her
>ends up being dragged into degeneracy instead
So it's going to be another mahou shoujo battle royal, trap going to die.
>Put him as a cool Wizard since he's a male.
>Nah just turn into a female looking all cute and shit.
This is some classic Japan.
So what are the odds of this face growing on you as the show goes on?
I'm starting to want to do things to her.
Magic? His 'front tail' being shifted back and transformed?
So anyone who's familiar with the source, did this first episode rush through anything, or at least anything important? From what I could tell it was moving at a fine pace but I wanted to be sure.
Makeup in anime is like throwing paint on a piece of completed art. It may help marginally in real life for ugly girls, but it doesn't do justice in anime since everyone is inherently cute.
I'm reminded suddenly of Chaos Dragon. The girls in that series did the eye shit right.
Yes. The normal thing to do in that situation is immediately develop an insatiable lust for fat old men's dicks filling your every hole. You'd have to be some sort of faggot to still want to fuck girls.
>those "magical girls are a metaphor for prostitution" doujins
>Koyuki selling her body and finding out that her whore-senpai with thick makeup and huge tits and a buttplug tail is actually her childhood friend (male)
Not inherently. Gender is a lot more fluid for girls than it is for dudes, most women are somewhat bisexual and a lot of straight girls would have sex with a girl no prob.
Fun fact, the Nazis only killed male homosexuals since they deemed lesbians to be natural since women are inherently bisexual.
This mixed with his former memories would result in a stronger pull towards women.
Oh and if the brain isn't turned female he's straight no matter what.
So do we even know how long this is yet? There are currently 4 BDs/DVDs listed with 3 episodes each. Don't 1 cour shows usually have around 6 volumes with 2 episodes each, since that what allows them to wring more money out of nips? I don't claim to be an expert on this at all.
Does Sailor Moon count?
>Not one talking about the girl that's wearing a white sukumizu as Mahou Shojou costume
>guys will stick their dick into just about anything they can, only recently it became taboo for that to be another guy (or an anus in general)
>gender is more fluid for girls
You and I have a different definition of recent.
Around 2000 years isn't all that recent in my book, unless you count Romans. Even then over 600 years isn't too recent either.

well that uh... huh?
one thing I didn't understand was if he got the time card because he was the one to defeat it, why didn't he also get the power card? he used time to do it behind the scenes but he still legit beat sakura to the punch there
maybe he does? as I said I never finished it, but it didn't seem that way in the episode as far as I can remember
thanks for making me want to watch it again tho
Are you fucking kidding me? All of the characters already acted retarded in episode 1 and everybody were already calling it shit, if you didn't browse the threads back then just say so.
Completely serious Mahou Shonen includes:
>Houkago no Pleiades
>Selector infected Wixoss
>Anything by Clamp
I was just waiting for shit to fly off the rails. I held on to hope that it was going to go completely crazy at some point, but no, it was just a fucking boring-ass 12-episode psych 101 lecture.
Wait, so first survivors become Homuras of this world and travel telling others that this thing is a scam?
There's only one way to find out.
in feudal japan?
sort of, the samurai had a system of pederasty yes, but they were still expected to have wife and sire children irregardless of their sexual orientation, they could just have a guy on the side while they did that.
But that changed when japan started to modernize, disdain for homosexuality was embraced as of way being more modern and "westernized".
You can't escape the dick.
>boy becomes a real girl
>immediately whores himself
They might set up a mystery in the reality behind the administration.
I haven't read the LN so I don't know how possible that is, but Fax is already reeking of "TOTALLY NOT KYUBEY, BRO"
They totally did though
Shhhh, That's a spoiler for retards who pick up the show for bloody murder God that show was dumb It was funt
Pleiades was a decent goodbye from Gainax, no amazing, but yeah.
They might, but this isnt set to stone yet (unless you read the pastebin), so you cant compare it yet without feeling unfit.
It was moon magic. His family uses moon magic, and the fag he was gunning for has some aspects of the moon, and it attracts him like a magnet.
It wasn't until he was told to fuck off that he set his sights someplace else. And conveniently, the seeds were already planted some time ago.
Wats the point of being a girl if you are gonna act like a tomboy.
Shit i woyuld take the chance to look and act super girly...you can imagine how manyribbos and frill my sdressses will have.
And i woild always war long skirts, to difference me from he rest of the sluts.
It's like a sick joke. How do you even fall this hard from being one of most note worthy studios is beyond me.
>This smacks yuri
I also want to be a magical girl
Have they established an upper-age limit on who can and can not meet the qualifications of Magical Girl?
What if one of them is a fat sweaty old man
>It's not just romance though, what purpose does the genderbending serve in the story?
It brings back in one of the character's old friends, who had a particular quirk, in a fashion that fittingly includes that quirk.
Also gender-bending bullshit is cray popular what the fuck are you on fuckboy
There is no age limit probably, but since it's hand picked by the creators i doubt they will pick fat sweaty man for it.
Pic related, it shows 11 of the 16 gils in their non transformed forms.
No, but he was wearing a collection of "shota" trademark fetish clothing.
To make you understand more, it was like a loli in zettai ryouiki miniskirt/thighighs, wearing a sailor uniform top with buttons undone at the belly, boots that make only sense in the winter but she's wearing them anyways, and a red school bad on her back.
Remember to not get attached
Swim-swim is her nickname
She is a bitch
I think you might be confusing yourself
Left girl business woman is Ruler Winterprison is at right of the Nun
Well as it was mentioned already
only two surviveso it's no surprise, and please spoiler, some anons might want to find out later.
Anyone who wants to watch this show clean will end up not being able to discuss here, i dont mind spoilers and read the pastebin already but will try to keep shit hidden for other people.
Fug, you're right. I didn't remember her too well so all I recalled was a kinda smug over-the-shoulder edgy look which kinda fits left.
That fits Ruler perfectly tho
Winterprison is now a SHIT
I like the human and the mahou shoujo of the Ruler too, specially the tranformed since it reminds me of the queen of hearts of alice.
it seems to me that sailor moon is great largely because of the adaptation, I mean, it's actually pretty clever most of the time, and whenever they adapted directly something from the manga that cleverness seems to evaporate
I guess the manga has moments but a lot of it is just edgy
I love genderbending when the boy that got turned into a girl loses to the dick
So the mascot and game creators are bad guys right?
Do we ever learn who they are and what they want?
I wanna be a schoolmate of the mahou shoujo, or the magical mascot, or a demon/monster they fight, or anything that is male so I can have intercourse.
>you will never be the male love interest of a mahou shoujo protagonist and receive death threats every day from mad yurifags as you get ridden by your strong, proactive leader-type waifu
It's not boys can be mahou shojo, It's trans CAN be mahou shojo.
>Just use your own magic to stealthilly plant explosives near ALL the schools like that faggot did in fate/zero.
I think you're forgetting that these people were still chosen to be mahou shoujos, and are still deemed righteous enough for the powers.
Just because they engage in a murderous competition to protect themselves/their powers doesn't mean they're gonna go killing countless schoolchildren.
Or were they not chosen for their righteousness, but for the administration's amusement as they ultimately set this whole shitstorm up
is there anything worse than prison gays?
From what I can tell, it's not a case of
the government and game creators being evil, but rather the moderator. Who's chosen is probably done by who plays the game the most and rankings.
