The owner of the workshop claim he is the developer for a new game, and asked the children to participate in game testing.

Recommended to: People like stories about daemon powers
Summary: The gateway to hell has been opened. People known as contractee to daemon running around the world with super power. Um...that's what I've gotten so far from episode 1. Everything else is still very unclear.

Genres: magical girl/children's
I've watched: 0.6 episode
Art style: magical girl/childish
Recommended to: urr.....children younger than 8?
Summary: "slow or limited in intellectual development" - this is the defination of the word "retarded", and that's exactly what this anime is. This is either targeted for children, or the producer is mentally retarded. The typical part of magical girl anime is the transformation sequence, and I have to say this is the most retarded I've encountered. One of the transformation sequence, the character literally says "I am God" in broken English while being transformed.
Rating - first impression: Retarded
Verdict: I'm not even going to finish episode 1 before I throw it into the garbage.
