Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara Release Date Announced BentoByte

The story is set in a world where magical girls are not necessary any more, yet girls with the aptitude of magical girls still exist in small number. Yuzuka Hanami, the protagonist, meets a magical creature Miton, and was turned into a magical girl, and starts a “magical” life without battles or other magical girl quests.

Protagonist. A girl who becomes magical girl after meeting Miton. After she transforms, she was fit in the swimsuit, much to her chagrin and embarrassment. She allows Miton to accompany her but repulses his attempt for intimate interactions. She is serious in studying and good at cooking, unlike many magical girls that Miton knew before. She can create and control water when she is a magical girl.

The magical creature that turns Yuzuka into a magical girl after meeting her. His appearance (to Yuzuka and other girls with the aptitude of magical girls) features a white spherical body with two long wings and a bird-like tail; he is supposed to be invisible and inaudible to the normal people, but he is able to show himself to them at will. Yuzuka and Chiya always keep distance from him, despite of his pursuits for intimate relationship with the girls. His taste is close to that of human, and he has a strong desire for delicious foods.

Yuzuka’s friend who deems Yuzuka as “most important friend” and truly cares about her; for example, she is on guard against Miton for the good of Yuzuka. She is usually emotionless and speaks in mono-tone voice. She can see and hear Miton, and has the aptitude of a magical girl; however, the limitation in Miton’s capacity prevents her from really becoming one. She is fascinated by Yuzaka’s status and figure as magical girl.

Critical reception

Rebecca Silverman of Anime News Network gave the series a B- rating. In her review, Silverman found the plot too short and meandering, and found the pastel animation a bit of an overreliance, but gave praise to the humor taking shots at the magical girl genre and the light-hearted tone for giving off an approachable vibe, saying that "If you just need a way to spend a cute and fun hour, Mahō Shōjo Nante Mō Ii Desu Kara. is a safe bet"
