Hi everybody! Wow, it’s Anime Thursday already? I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Captain American: Civil War for MC Tuesday. Folks, today is a busy day. After spending the entire morning doing chores, I was famished. I wanted a food wrapped in a pita. I do not know why I am craving a pita. Luckily, I bumped into The Pita Pit. This was my first visit and I was not disappointed. I had this delicious spicy black bean pita. You see, I’m doing the vegan thing and finding vegan takeout is difficult in the Bible Belt. You can imagine my joy in discovering the Pita Pit.
So, enough about my pita problems, let’s talk about Magical Girl Ore. The show is out of Pierrot Plus studios, home of Tokyo Ghoul: re.
Sweet Saki is an idol wannabe who has a crush on Sakuyo’s brother Mohiro. Sakuyo is Saki’s friends and bandmate in their terrible idol group. Mohiro is an aloof, quiet extremely famous idol. His partner Hyoue is the talker of their idol duo. Let me back up a second. I said that Saki has a crush on Mohrio. That’s a bit of an understatement. She is bananas for the dude.
So, one-day Mohiro is in danger. He is facing abduction form the most adorable demons ever. His only hope is Saki, who is endowed with the powers of a magical girl. These powers help her defeat the cute daemons and…well changes her appearance…a lot.
Come thru with the Cute
Now that you know a little about the show, I’ll tell you how I feel about it. I really like it! From someone who loves sad, dark, emo, melancholy, death, and destruction in her anime, I have to say that this sugary sweet anime is refreshing. The upbeat opening sequence puts you in the mood for a good time. Everything is bright, colorful, juvenile, and loud. And Saki’s singing? Yo, you have to hear her sing. Beyonce she is not.
While I’m doing all of this gushing, I will say that the story is kind of stupid. If you are an uber-intellectual who loves deep messages in your anime, this is not your jam. This appears to be simply a fun journey in the life of this obsessed, awkward, tone-deaf girl. I hope this show keeps this same energy for the remainder of the series. Just say stupid, corny, and fun. I don’t want it to suddenly turn left and try to be serious or get dark.
At the end of the day, I’m going to keep watching because, like Ouran High School Host Club, it isn’t cerebral. It’s just entertaining.
Wrapping it Up
