Magical Girl Ore Episode 1 & 2 – Anime QandA Review

An Anime QandA review for Magical Girl Ore Episode 1 and 2.

What’s the show? Magical Girl Ore Episode 1 & 2.

Or what? Or else!

Okay but seriously what’s the show about? It’s about aspiring idol Saki Uno, who swiftly learning that not only do magical girls (like in the anime sense) do exist, but her mother was one too and that in order to save her crush she must become one! She signs a contract with Kokoro her “cute” mascot, who’s actually a Yakuza brute and what ensues is madness and hilarity of the highest order as Saki’s magical girl form is actually a tall, muscular man adorned in a tight-fitting, pink uniform. Whom her crush, Mohiro (a popular and successful male idol) promptly falls for.

The struggle is real.

Seems like you summed it up pretty damn succinctly… So here’s the thing, this show is obviously a parody of magical girl anime, but it’s also so well written that it never feels like it’s taking cheap shots at the original subject matter. Also, this is very much a comedy, like I don’t think I’ve laughed so much during a new anime this year as much as I did when watching episode 1 of this show.

She has very good reactions.

And the other characters? Yes, of course there’s Sakuyo, who is Saki’s best friend and fellow aspiring idol, she’s also Mohiro’s younger sister! And she also happens to have a crush on Sakuyo!

Love triangle!

Ooohh~ things are getting complicated! And it’s about that time when these two first episodes end, and it’s a decent tease of what’s to come, I admit I am thoroughly intrigued to see where it goes from here!

Tight fit.

Well, I know you don’t score individual episodes but what how do you recommend episode 1 and 2 of Magical Girl Ore? Easily, in fact there should be nothing to stop anyone from watching this show. Sure there’s a bit of homo-eroticism, and I’m not exactly sure how much it’s going to lean into it going forward but even if that’s not your thing I think this is a show that deserves a watch by even the most jaded and steadfast of anime fans. Great characters, great comedy and just a great time.

  1. I didn’t make it to the second episode of this being bored by the first. I don’t click with comedy very often so I wasn’t really surprised that this one didn’t work for me.

  2. 😱 I’m scared… also intrigued. So conflicted right now. I said when I saw the pv that I wouldn’t watch it but now you show a picture of a dude trapped by tentacles. Curse you!

  3. The first two episodes were legit best satire I’ve seen in a long time; even better than One Punch Man’s take as a whole I dare say.

  4. I still don’t know if I’m going to watch it or not… Maybe… ha.

  5. I watched both eps… and found it pretty heavy handed and somewhat predictable in it’s humor. That left me with little confidence it was going anywhere, so I dropped it.

    • Seems like this anime is a lot more divisive than I thought! My comments seems pretty split between people who watched it and loved it and people who didn’t like it at all.
