Look, I don't read reviews of things before I read the book, so I never really know what I'm getting into. But this looked cute and was sort of highly rated when it came out so I wanted to give it a shot. I like when we get strong female leads in comics.
But dear God, was this supposed to be a rip-off of every popular girl's program out there? Sailor Moon, My Little Pony, you name it. Was this intended to be a mocku-comic? Or did it just happen that way? Because wow.... I know Magical Girl is an entire genre, an that's fine. But these chicks literally transform just like the Pretty Guardians and have astrological symbols on their heads. And Taurus looks shockingly like Rainbow Dash from MLP, down to the color of her hair. Even has the personality.
I am so disappointed in this. As an author, I know being original can be hard, but damn, this is just ridiculous. Am I missing the joke? Is this a woosh moment? Did it go over my head?
