Fragglepuss Anime Review 206: Kaiju Girls / Kaijuu Girls: Ultra Kaijuu Gijinka Keikaku

Kaiju Girls / Kaijuu Girls: Ultra Kaijuu Gijinka Keikaku

Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Parody, Fantasy, Chibi Monsters

First Aired: Fall 2016, 12 short-form episodes

Summary: Humanity has enjoyed an era of peace after many years of kaiju battles. After some time, girls begin to manifest the soul of kaiju monsters with the ability to transform. It’s up to a secret organization (GIRLS) to ensure these kaiju girls don’t get out of control and destroy the city!

This series is as ridiculous as it gets. The chibi-style girls transform into monsters and end up being more adorable. It’s fun to see the callback to some of the traditional Ultra series monsters and the loose interpretation they take in this show. The animation is fitting with its basic nature in the form of chibi characters, thick lines, and a lack of shading. The series knows what it’s going for and delivers on its promise of lighthearted moe girls.

You might enjoy this if: You are part of the Ultra fandom and are looking for a fresh new take on the kaiju of that universe. If you’re looking to learn more about the monsters behind the Kaiju Girls, check out this article on Anime Now:

You might not like it if: You don’t have an interest in watching an anime that exclusively uses chibi characters with little to no story.
