Mahou Josei Chimaka Chapter 1 review

Mahou Josei Chimaka Chapter 1 Story & Art by Kaiju Review

From the Publisher: “Fifteen years ago, magical girl Shimmer Shimmer Sky Patcher Chimaka lost her final battle against her greatest foe, broke up with her "destined" boyfriend, and practically flunked out of school. Now a chemical engineer at Squid Petroleum, Chimaka is older, wiser, and a whole lot more bitter. But when a surprise phone call alerts Chimaka to the fact that her ancient enemy is getting restless again, it's going to be up to Chimaka and her best friend Pippa to try to reignite Chimaka's old magic...and save the world!

For all you readers who wanted to know what happens after your favorite magical girl series left off...KaiJu brings you "Mahou Josei Chimaka"!”

Serialized in Sparkler Monthly, Mahou Josei Chimaka has surprisingly good artwork and a more or less compelling plot. The way it stealthily pokes fun at magical girl tropes was amusing to say the least. And yet, it still believes in itself whole-heartedly and is compelling enough to not be a mindless parody. The first chapter has me really excited for future chapters and I am legitimately curious where it will go from here. In conclusion I would say read this premiere chapter as it is maddeningly addictive.
