    This story is about a 15-year-old girl who is a newbie idol in love with her best friend's brother who is also a popular idol. But she runs into a scary yakuza guy and finds out that her mother was an ex-magical girl, and the yakuza guy was her mascot. Her love interest gets kidnapped by demons that look like burly men with cute squirrel heads. So she contracts the yakuza to become a magical girl, which in this story means she turns into a handsome guy in a magical girl outfit. On top of that, her love interest shows an attraction toward her magical guy form. Her best friend turns out to be in love with her and also becomes a magical cross-dressing guy to save her life.

    Thus, their manager, who is a magical girl geek, then decides to turn them into an idol unit.

    Episode 1

    Make a contract with the yakuza?

    Saki and Sakuyo just aren't getting any attention as idols as nobody was there to attend their flash concert, all while Sakuyo's big brother is hitting it big. And things get even wierder when Saki's mother is revealed to be a former magical girl and the person who recruited her, the yakuza boss Kokoro, wants her to also become one. With Mohiro about to be carried to the underworld, that got her to make a contract and as such, she becomes one, well a magical guy. Pretty hilarious start there as things are just totally blown out of proportion.

    And now, onto the second episode as two episodes premiere today ahead of its broadcast.

      Episode 2

      She's become the butt of jokes.

      And the weirdness just keeps piling on here from the exploding hairpin grenades to the rod that's just a glorified whacking stick, and Kokoro transforming into a flying familiar. It doesn't exactly help that Sakuyo and the manager saw it all go down and seeing that Mohiro is Sakuyo's big brother that it's no wonder why she's involved. So another monster strikes, this time a perverted macho octopus monster, and seeing that she can't use a Keijo-style move that she got herself into quite a jam, and Sakuyo ended up transforming into another magical girl dude to save her. That was totally weird what just went down there.

      So having watched two episodes already, it has made a decent enough impression to keep going for now when the next episode airs in three weeks. While it has been a solid comedy, the production values are lacking in some key areas.

        Episode 3

        When Saki met Sakuyo.

        Those two girls, who are boys when they are using their magical powers, have known each other since when they were little kids, and they took to singing, and that's how they became idols. They got lost, and Mohiro found them. So back in the present, Sakuyo gives that monster a JoJo-style beatdown. And then they make their TV debuts as dudes. That was an interesting backstory to say the least.

        So with that, I'll give it one more episode. Doesn't look like it will stick, but I'll watch out the trial period before saying definitively.
