Plot Summary: A mysterious animal landed while Atsushi and En is taking a bath. The animal is asking the two to protect the Earth. Being disturbed, Yumoto went to ask the two but then stopped when he saw the animal whom he referred to as Wombat. In school, Wombat is still chasing Atsushi and En and being chased by Yumoto. The chase ended in Earth Defense Club room with Ryū and Io inside. Wombat asked the five of them to help protect the Earth and gave them ‘Lovracelet’, a bracelet that lets them transform into Battle Lovers.
First Thoughts: You know, something like this can be hard to pull, but that’s mostly on if the material in there is funny enough and from what I saw in those 2 episodes…..they definitely managed to bring the humor into it and so far, keep it consistently well-done. Yes, people think the idea of a magical boy anime would be ludicrous but like any risky project, it all comes to execution. The show plays itself like a parody of magical girl shows from ‘breaking the fourth wall’ moments such as shouting out random battle names, the much gaudy looking outfits and the transformation sequences, which I can say…..”Hey Toei, learn from these guys!!! And not use too much CG!!” The main magical boy characters are actually enjoyable to watch in action and the most charismatic out of all of them is Yumoto IMO.
As somebody who’s now watching Sailor Moon (both Classic and Crystal…..yeah……) and other magical girl shows before (I still like Madoka more….that’s not changing my mind.), this is a great alternative from the usual dark and bleak type of magical (whoever) shows.
I’m going to have to go with CONTINUE WEEKLY.
I seriously hope this show still ends up being good until the end.
And until then, this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, bringing the LOVE SHOWER to all the……OK, that didn’t sound right in my head. Yeah, good night.
