What it’s about: Aikawa Ayumu was your everyday garden-variety high school student until he made the mistake of trying to save someone from a serial killer. Now he’s a zombie, trying to figure out who killed him. But that’s only the start of his troubles, as he encounters a series of increasingly bizarre characters and ends up gaining the ability to transform into a “Magical Garment Girl”, complete with cute girly outfit, disturbingly fetishised transformation sequence and magical chainsaw.
Why you should watch it: It’s tropey, silly, and its premise is out and out ridiculous, but it’s utterly unashamed about it and the result is surprisingly charming. This is not a complex story, but it’s funny and over the top, and it’s easy entertainment for those days when you don’t want to put too much thought into anything.
Caveats: See the “why watch it” segment above – this kind of show doesn’t appeal to everyone, but if you like the sound of it, you’ll probably enjoy it.
