A new series of Nurse Witch Komugi-chan, titled Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R, has been announced, and is scheduled to start airing in January 2016.
The original series appeared as a series of 6 OVAs back in 2002 – 2004, and started as a parody spin-off of the Soul Taker series, and was also meant to be a parody of the whole mahou shoujo genre.
The story follows Yoshida Komugi, a middle-school student with dreams of making it big as an idol. She performs along with 2 classmates who are also idols, but unlike the others who are becoming more popular, Komugi basically keeps getting stuck with small and insignificant performances.
One day, she comes across and helps a mysterious injured creature; the creature – named Usa-P – then asks Komugi if she wants to become a Legendary Girl. As a new Magical Nurse, Komugi gets to fight mysterious masked figures that appear to threaten the peace of the city – leaving her with the task of balancing three very different aspects of her life.
Needless to say, given the fact that the original series aired more than a decade to go, the character designs have gotten a bit of a visual overhaul – the image immediately below this is from the original OVA series, followed by the newer character designs below that.
