Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R Anime Review

Nurse Witch Komugi Complete Collection DVD Cover

Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R is not an anime to get taken seriously, so do not expect something similar to Cardcaptor Sakura or Madoka Magica, since there isn’t any real plot. This anime is much more similar to a parody of magical girl anime. Its completely ridiculous, and I still enjoyed to watch it.

As being a parody of the magical girl anime genre, it is mainly a comedy without any seriousness (except the last 2 episodes) and as a comedy, I still find it an enjoyable watch, this is an anime revival of its OVA almost 15 years ago so I can take it up with it’s new spin on the magical girl parody style.


Nurse Witch Komugi R is the 12-episodes anime TV series, which is a reboot of the original OVA co-produced by Kyoto Animation and Tatsunoko Production. The OVA lasted for 5 episodes released between August 23, 2002 and April 2, 2004. ADV Films licensed the OVA series in North America.

The new slapstick story will show Komugi-chan and her rivals as they juggle their daily lives as idols, students, and magical girls with laughter and tears.”

Komugi Yoshida is a fairly clumsy second-year middle-school student whose strong point is her spiritedness. She works as an idol like her classmate and close friend, Kokona Saionji, and and idol who cross-dressing, Tsubasa Kisaragi. However, in contrast to Kokona whose popularity is skyrocketing and Tsubasa with her charm in male attire, Komugi’s only gigs are low-end ones like people at the local shopping area. Still, Komugi has her dream as she lives her dual lives as an idol and middle schooler.

At some point, a mysterious injured being named Usa-P shows up before Komugi, She offers Usa-P medical treatment, and Usa-P, in thought of Komugi’s kindness, asks if she wants to become a Legendary Girl who can use magical powers.

There is no real plot, just girls becoming magical girl and dealing with monsters. If anything, the story mainly centers around how the character relationship grow but just a little.


When it comes to animation and artwork done by Tatsunoko Production is simply decent throughout the board, I cannot truly point out a lot other than I did not truly see any decrease quality at all throughout and it’s normally consistent, though the 3DCG idol scenes is confusing but normal.


Characters were the greater part of the anime. Even though simple, the cast had great chemistry with one another. The character that earned the most fascination appeared to be Tsukasa due to her complication and love problems.


Nothing special. There’s no memorable background music.

Overall (58/100)

The characters have their excellent times. I really hope one day that there will much more powers and monsters in the future. It is also fascinating to see their character development as idols. I’m hoping that they will turn out to be much more popular. I thought the anime is alright. Though it is much like almost all of the magical girls we have viewed over the years, I truly enjoy watching this kind of anime for enjoyment.
