Henkei Shōjo's Final Transforming Girl is a Okonomiyaki Machine

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The protagonist of Henkei Shoujo finds herself at the mercy of another strange transforming girl in the mini web series' final short. This time she's manning an okonomiyaki stand at a school festival, and is surprised to see the chef is turning out food in record time. She peeks behind the curtain after a customer asks for a large order of six okonomiyaki to discover the chef, Arisa, is more than meets the eye.

Singer and former Morning Musume idol Sayumi Michishige voices Arisa in the short. The official website characterizes Arisa as someone who likes taking cute pictures and putting them on Instagram and enjoys cooking, especially fried rice.

The Henkei Shōjo series has garnered 8.3 million views globally.

The project introduced another new character, office lady Hiromi, as the "manager" of the project's Twitter account in August. The staff asks for fans to please support Hiromi even though she can't transform.


DLE's increasingly unique transforming Henkei Shōjo anime shorts have included Rin (a jetplane), Haru (a sports car), Itsuki (a battle bot), and Nana (a warship). Tokyo MX began airing the shorts starting on July 1. Prior to the airing, the Rin short was played on Street Vision screens in Akihabara, Harajuku and Yūrakuchō once per hour on June 29. Viewers could snap a shot of the video and post it on Twitter with the hashtag "#変形少女えなこキャンペーン" (Henkei Shōjo Enako Campaign) to win a Polaroid photo signed by Enako.

The project's concept is "What would you do if a girl nearby suddenly transformed?" The female characters undergo complete transformations.
