Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! Review

cutemagicaldefenseStory:
When a mysterious pink wombat appears to the members of the Do Nothing Club one day, little did they imagine that the fate of the planet would rest on their shoulders….

Violence:
A bit of blood, usually in comedic scenes where no “real” damage takes place. Also, large nose bleed scenes, also for pure comedy.

Language:
Thankfully there’s little to put in here besides a few sh-ts.

Nudity:
Considering we kick this off in a bathhouse with our male heroes, it’s there. Everything from behind and top front stuff (male only). Nothing really bad, but there. Also, the typical Sailor Moon transformation deal: naked outlines in light, no details.

Theology/mythology:
Unless you consider magical transformation and aliens to be unholy abominations, there’s not much to note here…

Personal impression:
Considering that I forgot I even watched this show until I was going through some old link backups… well, that kinda says it all really.
This show wasn’t bad. But it certainly wasn’t all that good or memorable either (kinda reminds me of the current streaming season, actually). The animation is pretty solid, and the parody aspect is a near painful level of obvious. That said, I really wanted more legit comedy in this parody and I was disappointed in getting a rather lukewarm serving of that. A few chuckles here and there isn’t quite enough to entice me. When I first heard of this show I was hoping for a parody like Nozaki-kun. Sadly, we didn’t really get that.
Again, not a bad show. And if you want a parody (a gender bent one to boot) of magical girl shows like Sailor Moon, it’s not bad. Just don’t look for any truly gut busting moments. It’s not that kind of “comedy.” Light, easy and over-the-top is as far as this show ever gets.

Personal rating: 10+

Episodes: 12
Language: Sub
Official rating: TV14
Genre: magical, fantasy, comedy

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.

One thought on “Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! Review

  1. I found this show hilarious while watching it, but like you kind of forgot it immediately after it finished. Having watched a lot of magical girl shows though, this one just hit the right notes to be really funny while at the same time adding nothing of substance.
