I thought it would be fun to write a series of blogs doing first impressions and episodic reviews using Crunchyroll’s random feature. On our first shot of Crunchyroulette we landed on Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara! Did we survive?
It’s incredible what good writing can do for an anime. This episode threatened the relationship of Mai and Sakuta with cliche highschool anime shenanigans and strengthened the maturity of their relationship all in 24 minutes. I’m going to start by briefly talking about the characters that played the largest roles: Tomoe, Rio, and Mai and then the episode overall. Also, the opening song is an absolute banger and should be topping charts in every country.
