Average Rating

Satoshi "Sasshi" Imamiya believes his life is in shambles, as only a 12-year-old can. Having lost his card collection, his childish dilemmas worsen when he learns that his childhood friend, Arumi Asahina, will be moving away. Suddenly, their issues are dashed aside for the surreal, and they find themselves transported away through bizarre worlds of science fiction, magic, and war. Any attempt to escape only catapults them into another alien land. Soon, the two come to a realization: every world is just a reimagining of their hometown. But there are two unfamiliar faces—the voluptuous Mune-mune and the elusive blue-haired Eutus—and they just might be the key to escaping their predicament. Abenobashi Mahou☆Shoutengai follows Sasshi and Arumi's comedic exploits as they desperately attempt to return home. However, when the pair unravel a tale spanning generations, they begin to wonder if the cause of their situation is more personal than they thought. Is returning home truly what they desire?

Needs more Jojo’s references


This show is extremely fun. Gainax lovers, isekai lovers, whatever, this anime had something for everyone!


Great old Gainax with a good message. “Being human, having your health, that’s what’s important.”


Watched this since it reminded me of FLCL. Was pretty cool and had a fun coming of age story told through different stages and worlds.


Gainax visuals which Im ALWAYS down for. Repetitive episodes and comedy that often fell flat. Liked the central themes but a copout ending


Has some really funny moments


The plot is all over the place, cringey and there is child nudity.
