I thought there would be more attention towards this anime, especially since it's directed by Mizushima Tsutomu, the director of Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu! Here is the opening animation for this anime:

Is it just me or do I get Dokuro-chan vibes from this? Since it's an OVA, expect lots of crass humour and bloodshed.

Yeah, the OP reminds me of Dokuro-chan too. When she's dancing against a backdrop of burning buildings.

I hope this is better than Dokuro-chan though.

I'll check this out as the concept sounds entertaining. There aren't enough magical princesses who want to take over the world as main characters. However, if this turns out to be like dokuro-chan, I probably won't like it.

I'm not a big fan of toilet humour and that's what I expect from this, but I'll give it a chance.

However, she'd better damn-well take over the world by the end. None of this "oh, I was wrong." crap.

I just saw episodes 1 and 2 (OVA Volume I) and I'm thinking to myself, why are they showing this on free TV?

This special Anime-TV braodcast of Dai Mahou Touge aired all of the OVA'S featured program, save the ending, so I'm wondering like, who's going to buy the OVA then?

Anyway, my initial thoughts:
Spoiler for OVA I:


I wonder how many volumes of the OVA will be released, because simply by quality, the anime would be justified to fill another late night TV series slot.
At least that way, the viewers would be able to understand Punie's motives through character development.

Then again, I reckon this was inteded to be a gag comedy, where the plot would be secondary. From that standpoint, this type of drastic marketing may succeed in capturing the attention of some hardcore otakus.

Okay then...suicidal vegetables that peel themselves prior to being cooked, extremely ugly school girls and a vindictive mascot that sounds like Barry White. I'm hooked.

This makes Dokuro-chan look tame. I liked Dokuro, and I definitely liked the first episode of this. It reminds me of the fast-paced absurd humor of Puni Puni Poemi (clearly intentional, since the protagonist's name is Punie) and of Magikano. Mad magazine on steroids.

And did you realize that the deep-voiced tough chick is voiced by Kawasumi Ayako (Lafiel, Aoi, Matsuri, etc.)!!?? The director is Mizushima Tsutomu, who directed Dokuro and Jungle Itsumo and will direct XXXholic, and who worked on Genshiken, Kujibiki, Crayon Shin-chan, and Ichigo 100% OVA. The main voice actress, Satou Rina, played Tsutako in Marimite, and Negi (!) in Mahou Sensei Negima. Lots of positive comments about her over on 2channel. And her animal mascot is Saitou Chiwa (except when he's being played by the guy who played the count in Gankutsuou and Roy in Solty Rei; don't ask).
Spoiler for funny bits, not really spoilers:

No group is listed on AndrewLB's site, which is the place to look. You can also check the Who is going to fansub this series? thread. I hope someone does fansub it. It would be a shame if people who would enjoy it missed out. I'd class it with Puni Puni Poemi and Dokuro-chan...and maybe Monty Python and Trailer Park Boys. I found this first broadcast much funnier than Magikano.

I just saw this, It's Sailor Moon Meets Dokoru Chan! OMG It's so off the wall. I don't know, but it's definitely something to watch right after watching High School Girls.


That little mascot, hehehehe, I like how he went all School Days on her at the end.

As said, Dokuro-chan wasn't too up my alley but this most certainly is. I'm hooked although I do agree. Why the heck did they bother making it an OAV? A segemented TV series would've fit way better as it's not really all that violent (compared to many other combat-excentric animes on TV).

Oh, well. It's some good laughs, Punie is cute (looked pretty cool in the mascot villiage, too) the animation is pretty decent and I love the contrasting styles. But if I see that transformation scene one more time I'm gonna wretch.

I wonder who'd win in a fight between her and Dark Nanoha
