It's an excellent anime. This anime at its time of release was quite controversial, however I must say that this anime is quite good. One of the main reasons for criticism was because it was quite "stupid", however, I must defend this anime saying that it is quite good, is a completely parody production, which mocks many elements of anime today, as well some stereotypes. It is not worth looking for seriousness, is a production with many elements of comedy in some moments absurd, however, that is its essence, mockery and parody.
The elements of this anime (within its context) are excellent. He does not bore, he laughs, he enjoys good animation and the characters are well adapted. It is definitely an anime that is worth seeing, however it is not a production that should be taken seriously. It's just a comedy anime.
The story centers on 5 schoolchildren until one day a "magical" Wombat appears and turns them into magical boys who will have to face the villains called the club of conquest of the earth using the power of love.
This is a parody of the genre of the mahou shoujo, but in its development the parody feels too weak, has many fanservice for fujoshis and is incredibly stupid and ridiculous, but, its ridiculous can be fun to see whenever it does not take Seriously and do not think much about their mistakes.
The animation is colorful and lively, quite fluid although it abuses some tricks to save budget, the design of the characters is fairly regular, they differ from each other and the villains are unique, they do not look especially original, but as a parody they fulfill their mission, And are not hurtful to the eye.
This series is a parody on the mahou shoujo genre. The elements it mocks are obvious and the characters actually acknowledge it - unlikely heroes flashily transforming into their ridiculous costumes with out-of-this-world powers battling monsters-of-the-week while upholding their valiant virtues of love and friendship. As a quirky deconstruction of the style, the series manages to pull it off with as few hits as possible.
Like its magical girl predecessors, Magical Boys has some predictable fight scenes. Those are not why I stuck around though. A good portion of each episode is banter between the characters, and it's often pretty funny or just bizarre, and often segues into the villain's motive. Speaking of villains, they're diverse and just as strange as the conversations.
Magical Boys is a much better experience then many people expected it to be. You may come for the mahou shojo parody, but you'll stick around for the general wittiness, self-aware humor, and overall comfy atmosphere that emerge from watching this show.
Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE! Is a series of genres Slice of Life, Comedy, Magic, School. Magical Boys are very cyclical up to the very end, and I think that's why it turned out to be a lot of people off initially. For the most part, it uses a fight-of-the-week setup, an obvious homage to the magical girl genre, but just like those shows, this can lead to a predictable, repetitive show. However, each enemy is unique and the last episode throws a spectacular plot twist, so if you can put up with this style you'll be in for a good time.
Its very colorful overall, the art in this show is consistent and bubbly. It's very pleasant, and all of the characters are pretty much color-coded so you'll never get confused.
I like the opening, it's very peppy and catchy. The same can not be said for the in-show music, which was mostly forgettable, and some tracks just keep getting over and over, another homage to the magical girl genre that comes out as a pain instead of nostalgia.
The main characters are one-dimensional as can be. Red magical boy loves snuggling, blue magical boy is lazy, magical boy is all about girls, magical boy loves money, and green magical boy has no traits whatsoever that I remember. Some characters are introduced and immediately established as the villains. All of the characters are vividly memorable, and bonds between them develop or are revealed throughout the series. All of the characters shine as well. My personal favorites are Goura, red magical boy's older brother who runs the hot springs, and Mr. Tawarayama, the magical boy's teacher who is probably dead. All of these characters are designed to have a strong trait, and the show plays this very well, and there was not a single character. I did not like the end.
This anime is very good. At first it will seem like a common anime, but in reality it ends up giving a lot of laugh when we notice that the characters are only a parody of the genre magical girl.
Throughout the plot will only be seen mocking some elements of the current anime and the Magical Girl. One of the ones I remember the most and the one that gave me the most was the question during the transformation.
It is definitely an excellent alternative to spend a while full of many laughs, because this anime has a parody comedy of excellent quality. This anime is not recommended for people with serious anime tastes or who do not like the magic girl, because all the humor revolves around this element and some current anime clichés.
