Plot[edit | edit source]
A popular social game known as the Magical Girl Raising Project has the ability to grant players a 1-in-10,000 chance of becoming a real-life Magical Girl. Each of the Magical Girls possesses unique abilities and earn Magical Candies by protecting people and performing good deeds. However, at some point, the administration has decided that sixteen Magical Girls in a certain city are too many, announcing they will cut the number in half by having the Magical Girl with the fewest Magical Candies each week lose their powers. As the rules of the game become more twisted, the girls eventually find themselves dragged into a life-or-death battle against each other.
