What is the plot of Magical Girl Magical Destroyers?
In 2008, the emergence of a mysterious supernatural force eliminates all otaku culture in Japan from anime, games, manga, music, and trains to cosplay. Anime merchandise is stored away in giant warehouses, and “otaku” are suppressed for their own “protection” and “well-being”. The Japanese people don’t question this new development and act as though they were brainwashed.
The SSC – an organization charged with maintaining “order” appears to have wiped out most of the otaku until in 2011 a group of people decides to rise against them. First, this group of resistance fighters, lead by a young revolutionary known as “Otaku Hero”, decides to retake the blockaded city of Akiba.
Otaku Hero loves otaku culture and loves the city Akiba. The resistance members call themselves the Akiba Revolutionary Army and engage in a fierce battle with the SCC and their leader Shobon. Helping Otaku Hero are three magical girls named Anarchy, Pink, and Blue, who all adore Otaku Hero.
Otaku Hero’s motto is, “Let’s fight together for a world where chaos and order are destroyed and we can say we like what we like as much as we like! Let’s gather under the banner of freedom, my fellow otaku, and let the otaku counter-culture take back the culture that has been stolen from you!”
Who are the main characters and cast?
Otaku Hero (played by voice actor Makoto Furukawa) is the young leader of the Akiba Revolutionary Army. He was an ordinary otaku but once the Otaku Culture Protection Law was enacted he decided to rise up against the SSC in order to reclaim his beloved otaku culture. Although, Otaku Hero doesn’t have a “super power” his charisma and strong sense of justice makes him attractive to magical girls and all kinds of otaku (enthusiasts).
Anarchy (played by voice actress Fairouz Ai) is a fiery and passionate magical girl, who supports the Otaku Hero. Anarchy has a very competitive nature and when her temper flares her foul mouth is revealed. Despite her wild demeanor she has a very kind heart and will always give her all. Due to her “tsundere” personality she is oftentimes misunderstood. In order to transform into a magical girl she quickly whips out her costume, which she keeps stored in her backpack, and puts it on with lightning speed.
Blue (played by voice actress Aimi) is a magical girl with a Kansai dialect, who is hard to talk to. If Anarchy is a “tsundere” then Blue is definitely a “Yandere”. She appears to be calm, cool, and collected, but her inner thoughts are usually revolving around boys, dating, and dating sites. In a fight, she can be relied upon and she has the ability to understand Pink.
Pink (played by voice actress Tomoyo Kurosawa) is a magical girl who always wears a gas mask. She is unable to speak and only makes strange “gobo-gobo” noises, which strangely enough Blue is able to understand. Pink loves cute things and her dream is to work at a maid café and dress in cute costumes. She fights by using long-range attacks with syringes.
