The Other Half; A Different Take on ‘Magical Girl Site’ Episode 1 – Anime QandA Review

An Anime QandA Review for Magical Girl Site Episode 1. (From irlwaifu)

I can’t believe he is dropping this after one episode I know right, so much for giving everything a go.

Is that you IRL Waifu? Yup. I thought I would step in to answer the remaining 13 questions from this review.

He doesn’t always do a full 20 on single episode reviews? Just roll with it, it seems more cool this way.

Okay. Before we start, do I need to call you IRL Waifu? Absolutely.

Well okay. So why are you here Cactus Matt’s IRL Waifu? Do you disagree with him? Actually, not quite. He is right on so much of what he says. This was one of, if not the most, depressing episodes of anime I have ever seen. I cried so much. I felt for Aya Asagiri so much. I hurt so much. She is suffering at home, suffering at school and well, she may be being used as a weapon because of this. How much does the world need to crush one little soul?


So what is the difference between you and Cactus Matt? I’m a girl. Well, woman.

You’re a girl? You doubted that? You thought I was made up?

No I mean, how can you being a girl be what makes this different for you? I think it’s because I know how girls really are with each other. I’ve been in that place. Cute girls do not always do cute things. Cute girls can be fucking cu—

—CUTTHROAT? Yes, cutthroat. But also what you interrupted me saying.

*insert High School bitch names here*

You are not holding back are you? Nope. This episode was depressing, but I would not go as far as calling it misery porn as Cactus Matt did. I didn’t get off on it. I got angry about it. I reflected on it. I realised the amped up realness of it. I need to see how this story goes because I cannot let this go at this point simply because it challenged my emotions, and took me to places I didn’t want to go… or go back to, to an extent.

So you are continuing this anime? Yes. Strap me in for the emotional rollercoaster, as I pray to the almighty flying spaghetti monster that Aya Asagiri makes it through.

I’m logging on.

So what does this mean for Cactus Matt? I volunteer as tribute to continue the reviews that he cannot write.

Well, I guess we shall be speaking again in future? Definitely. Be sure to have the tissues ready, I foresee them being needed. *Eyebrow raises* And don’t be gross, not for that you pervert.

Fight on!

    1. I like anime that challenges me, and think having something confronting in amongst all the cute is a good thing. I am simultaneously looking forward to this and dreading where it is going.
