Funny and Cute, the opposite of Soultaker

"Nurse Witch Komugi is definately the opposite of SoulTaker, a dark and creepy anime series. Komugi debuted in SoulTaker. She was cute then and she's even cuter now. Thankfully, she finally got her own show, and here it is! I've seen it more then enough times and I highly reccomend it to anyone who likes anime, especially those that are fans of comedy. Komugi is the cosplay idol everyone loves and if you liked SoulTaker, you'll definately like this.
Even though Mugimugi is in Soultaker,it's not necessary to watch SoulTaker to understand Nurse Witch Komugi-chan. This has it's own storyline and even though many of the characters are originally from Soultaker, this anime is its own series, with its own storyline.
I loved these episodes, and definately reccommend it to anyone. Please watch Komugi-chan!"

"This show is purely hilarious. I've only seen one episode of the show thus far and I'm not clear on all the names, but it's pure slap-stick genius. Komugi is a pop-star, cosplay, super nurse, savior of the world. Fighting her evil yet well developed counter-part and rival Hikki/Koyori. This show is funny for it's rather original comedic ideas such as overly ranting comic fans who've gone wild, transforming buildings in full blown power rangers fashion, and chicks who are actually willing to compete over who can give the most fan service.
The character designs are real cute and the highlights and color of the show are luscious. Also they truly know when to make the art style look reasonably sensible and then unbelievably ridiculous. As for the voice acting to me it wasn't bad at all. No one was screaming every five seconds at the top of their lungs so you couldn't understand a damn thing they were saying. The story itself is quite cute and enjoyable.
The parodies in this show are pretty good too, because so far they haven't done parodies of the same old stuff that everyone does. i.e. Gundam, Evangelion, Dragon Ball Z. I mean they have power rangers (which is used yes, but always cool ), G-Force , and Samurai Pizza Cats, which is a show which aired for like 2 weeks, but it was so good that it's laughable.
When it comes to the Characters, you couldn't do a better job for a comedy. I mean you have the cute and lovable Mugi who loves her fans, does what she wants, and honestly doesn't care about who her enemy is, what they have to say, or what they're after. Also Koyori who seems how to set new standards for "busting" into show biz, the cautious yet lecherous Mugimaru ( Mugi's companion ), Mugi's agent who's a witty guy with an awfully short fuse and fowl mouth for such a calm person, they're boss who's a rather nice women with no patience for failure, and plenty of others who I don't want to list because it's too hard without knowing their names.
Bottom line this show is definitley worth checking out. If you've read this review all the way through then you all know the details I've given you thus far are only from the first episode. So if this keeps up in future ones then this show is a must have to any collection. Also I've never found a show so relaxing with all this comedy. So check out Komugi in action, I'm sure you'll like it. Hope this review was helpful."
GIRL WITH A MAGICAL SYRINGE

"The evil life force Ungrar is secretly planning to conquer the Earth by unleashing some particularly nasty viruses upon the people of the planet. The Goddess of the Vaccine World, Maya, has sent her helper, a talking rabbit named Mugimuri (who actually looks more like a beachball) to give a special human magical powers to confront and destroy the viruses. Perhaps Mugimaru doesn't make the best choice when he gives the power to Komugi Nakahara, 17 year-old flat chested semi-popular cosplay idol who's trying to branch into singing and acting. Unfortunately for her, she has more spirit than talent, and she's constantly being hated on by her manager and other idols like Megu, whose only claim to fame is being a centerfold idol for old perverts. Komugi also has to deal with a magical girl on Ungrar's side who flies around on what looks to be a giant banana fudge sundae, glass saucer and all! And Komugi is so dumb that she doesn't even recognize her as Koyori, her friend and classmate who is also an idol.
Nurse Wich Komugi was a pretty funny disk, even though it included only 2.5 episodes with the last bonus episode composed mainly of music videos of the characters singing. The first two episodes were worth the cost of the volume I guess. Seeing the Big Site where the big comic conventions take place turn into a giant robot made me laugh a lot, plus there is a spoof of Gatchaman that only hit a glancing blow on its potential hilarity. For the most part the humor was funny and the Japanese voice actors did great. This volume also included a funny but informative documentary on how an anime is made, narrated by a stuffed doll of Mugimaru.
I would also recommend Excel Saga."
