Not all mahou shoujos are set in urban settings.
>>
There are a few set in medieval times depending on your rigidity on the definition of mahou shoujo. That does make them a bit less anachronistic.
>>
>>154889105
Tutu takes place in a town they literally can't escape. It's entirely urban.

Figure 17 is rural as fuck though.

Magic Knight Rayneth is set in the fantasy world, jungles, caves and castles.

>we have to share a board with people like this now
I didn't ask for this future
>>
City dwellers are more numb to weird shit happening, and its a convenient excuse for a lot of protags and antags to all happen to be in the same area.
>>
>>154888958
little girls want to self-insert too
>>
>>154893936
You better get used to it, because this is the future you deserve.
>>
>>154888958
Because bumpkin little girls are not pure enough to be magical girls.
>>
What would even be the plot of a rural mahou shoujo? The villain wants to destroy the village by draining their rice paddies?
>>
>>154894421
the villain wants to build a shopping center or something
>>
>>154894600
It would be cool if they made a mahou shoujo where they fought regular people instead of monsters or other people with powers.
>>
>>154894421
I always figured rural mahou shoujos would fight werewolves and stuff like that.
>>
Having a setting other than a realistic looking modern day city/town requires creativity and talent to pull off well.

Honestly, I could see this working.
Just make her a shrine maiden and have her murder evil spirits and shit.

FORTUNE TELLER DID NOTHING WRONG

There will never be a Touhou anime and we both know it.

Why do all mahou shoujo shows have girls with magical powers?
>>
>>154894929
But anon, there IS a touhou anime.
>>
>>154894929
It doesn't need to be anything like touhou.
for one, the main girl wouldn't dress like a cheap whore.
