Henkei Shojo Anime Short Redefines 'Transforming Girl'
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
DLE began streaming the "one chorus version" of the Henkei Shojo (Transformation Girls) net anime shorts' theme song "Me-Chu-Pa-La" on Friday. The video features animation from the first short, titled "Haru-hen" (Haru Version), which debuted on March 27.
The theme song performed by Haru is available for download on the project's official website.
The first short (embedded below) has been viewed more than 1.65 million times, and it trended on Twitter. In the video, Haru transforms into a fighter plane to go after a hat that blows off another girl's head.
The project's concept is "What would you do if a girl nearby suddenly transformed?" The female characters undergo complete transformations, and Haru's transformation was the first that the project revealed. The project will announce Haru's voice actress on Monday. One person who correctly guesses the voice actress on Twitter will receive a poster signed by the voice actress.
The official website includes a 360° feature that lets fans view the transformed girls from any angle. In addition, the website is currently streaming "mysterious gravure cameraman Falcon Katō's" fan-service video of Haru's transformation.
The second short, titled "Rin-hen" (Rin Version), will premiere on June 9. The project will reveal the remaining three characters in June, July, and August, respectively.
