I bought the first volume of the manga a while back. I really need to get around to reading it.

Damn, magical girls are not messing around with cutie wands and adorable mascots anymore.

I've been loving this manga, this is exciting news for me. My only reservation is the director choice, since "Director of Strike the Blood" doesn't give me immediate excitement.

The manga treats magical girls like special ops soldiers, with the lead character having severe PTSD and social issues. It's been quite some time since i've seen a premise like this treat its characters seriously and with respect, instead of devolving into complete schlock. I heavily recommend giving the manga a try.

I'm digging the manga, although it seems like it's coming out really slowly here if Japan is on vol 8 and we're only on vol 3, and the releases are still spaced out by like six months? Anyways, I'm looking forward to the anime.

I'm hoping the "I made the wrong person into a magical girl" manga gets an anime at some point.

This sounds intriguing and possibly something I would have a blast with. The PV looks pretty cool and I wonder what will the cast be like for this show. Looking forward to seeing this in 2019.

As someone who is obligated to watch every dark magical girl show, I must say that this looks interesting. I will definitely watch.

My main concerns are:

1. How they keep up with violence as mangga has a lot of it and a lot of gore to.
2. I hope it does not became a victim of another stupid scandal as there are chinese terrorists, russian mafia and some other orhganisations that may offend people in the Internet.

This happens when manga author combine things that Japanese fanboys dig: Magical Girls, Call of Duty games, and airsoft.

I bought the first volume of the manga out of curiosity and I didn't bother picking up second volume.

Oh, cool! The manga is good and I'm always up for more magical girls. Although admittedly my first thought when I saw the article was "I really hope the stream won't be Amazon-only again."

Magical girls, blood, and kick-ass music? Sign me up! (fingers crossed for this one!)

""""Dark"""" mahou shoujo stopped being entertaining after Madoka, Day Break Illusion and Magical Girl Raising Project. But let me guess, this will be one of those shitty dark magical girl shows like Magical Girl Site that will be left incomplete with garbage ""plot twists"" and "pl0x read muh [email protected] fur more" ending.
