The catastrophe continues.
What They Say:
Three girls in the manga club, Ai, Mai, and Mii, battle with evil Earth invaders, face off against rivals in tournaments, and might not actually draw any manga.
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
The prologue alone is worth the price of admission as we get to see Ai reaching for a 500 yen coin on the ground only to be repeatedly punched in the face by Mai. How can you not love that simple bit of brutality? With the main episode though, the girls get offered a massive sum of money that would make them quite wealthy for life if they only participate in the survival game. Not surprisingly, Mai has debt that equals the amount that they’re offered, so she gets pretty dark pretty quickly in order to secure the prize. The show doesn’t have a problem with the violence, or switching it out to make it a referential show, and having the girls change the script midway and stepping into something larger and weird is, well, appropriate. Not amusing, but appropriate.
