gushing over magical girls

Today marks the premiere of the Gushing Over Magical Girls anime, which is already live in Japan and will stream on HIDIVE in the form of the “gushing” version. This is one of three versions previously announced for the series, each less censored than the last. With the debut upon us, you can catch an episode 1 preview below. 

The first version of the Gushing Over Magical Girls anime is the TV broadcast version, which is how it will play on Japanese TV. This version is going to censor aspects of the show so it can be broadcast.

The second version is being called the “gushing” version, and this will become available on streaming services. This will show more than the TV version, but will still have some censorship. Specifically, it says the audio will be censored, and some but not all of the pictures.

The third version is called the “ultra-gushing” version, and will have no censorship. For a person to view this version, they’ll need to get it on Blu-ray Disc or DVD.

Misato Suzuki and Atsushi Otsuki are directing the Gushing Over Magical Girls anime, with Noboru Kimura on series composition and Yasuka Otaki handling character designs for the Asahi Production show. Satoshi Motoyama is on sound direction and Yasuhara Takanashi, Akinari Suzuki and Johannes Nilsson are on music, with Lantis responsible for music production. 

J-Novel Club publishes the manga in English and sums up the story like so:

“Hi, I’m Hiiragi Utena. I’m a normal magical-girl-loving middle school girl—or at least I was, but then some talking mascot showed up out of the blue and cast a spell on me! Now’s my chance to join my beloved magical girls as…a villain? Hang on, something’s wrong with my outfit! This can’t be happening! Watch this shy magical-girl fan transform into a sadistic dominatrix! When good and evil collide, who will be the one to submit?!”
