Thoughts on Magical Girl Site Volume 16

Volume sixteen is the final entry of Kentaro Sato’s Magical Girl Site manga series. As these things tend to go, the fate of the entire planet hangs in the balance. Of course the Magical Girls are determined to fight back, but…
This final volume contains chapters one hundred twenty nine through to one hundred thirty-nine, the final chapter.

Humanity has been turned into sperm and taken off planet, earth teeters on the edge of annihilation – and still, the Magical Girls fight on. Do they stand a chance against the tides of darkness or has the battle already been lost? The harrowing final volume of Magical Girl SITE!

To say that things have gotten wild in the final few volumes of Magical Girl Site would be something of an understatement. Events have certainly escalated from the very beginning, and it is a spectacular thing to witness. We started out with a bullied girl receiving magical powers, and now end with a desperate fight to save the entire planet. Of course the Magical Girls are fighting, but some unexpected allies also lend their aid.
As you’d probably imagine, there’s a whole lot of action in this volume as the final battle unfolds. There’s been a lot of creativity with the wand powers throughout the series, and we continue to see that even with this volume.

Whilst the Magical Girls and their unexpected allies have their climactic battle, Aya herself has her own personal fight to tend to. It’s incredible seeing how far Aya has come from the very first volume, and following her journey has certainly been one heck of an experience.
Of course we’ve seen other characters develop over the course of the series as well, and even some of the more despicable characters are given a shot at redemption.

All stories come to an end eventually, and Magical Girl Site is no exception. All I will say about the ending is that I am very happy with it.

Following Magical Girl Site from the very first volume has been a pleasure. Sure, sometimes it gets into some really dark stuff, and has some incredibly uncomfortable imagery from time to time, but it’s something that I consider worth checking out. I do feel like the few volumes that focused on Kayo and Sakura as opposed to Aya were a bit weaker, but the series quickly returned to form once Aya was back in the spotlight.
It all came together in the end, though, and I would consider Magical Girl Site a fantastic series. If you want a dark magical girl series, then this one is definitely a top pick.
