Nurse Witch Komugi

Back in 2001, Akiyuki Shinbo, whom you may know from Madoka Magica or Nanoha, directed an anime called Soul Taker.  In 2002 it got an OVA.  Of course, since this is a magical girl community, it was a magical girl OVA.

And thus Nurse Witch Komugi was born!

All of the characters from Soul Taker are now working for various talent agencies.  Komugi, who was a mutant nurse in Soul Taker, is now a teen age cosplay idol.  Her other identity is Nurse Witch Komugi who is battling the evil king of the viruses, Ungrar.  Helping her is her oddly perverted fluffy animal companion Mugimaru.  Against her is Magical Maid Koyori, she of course has no connection to Komugi's best friend Koyori.

This short series parodies magical girls and Soul Taker.  I will go right out and say that not seeing Soul Taker did not affect my viewing of this series. My favorite scene would have to be when Komugi cosplays the entire team from Gatchaman/G-Force/Battle of the Planets all at once.

Another interesting thing about this series is the dub.  Nurse Witch Komugi was acquired by a different company than the one that had Soul Taker.  In a then unheard of move, they actually negotiated with the other company for the voice actors to keep continuity between series.

Oh,did I mention that in the dub you can hear Princess Tutu voicing a perverted animal mascot?

So more than one anime went the Magical Girl Pretty Sammy route. Very interesting.
