Who am I?
What am I?
Where did I come from?
Where am I going?
Loved by no one.
Needed by no one.
If my existence
holds no meaning,
then why am I here?
The year is 1853 and the Royal Guard is on a mission to catch a monster. They have found the unkept mansion and there they find a girl. A girl with poisonous skin and blood. Without any resistance Cardia is captured and to some extent she is relieved as she thinks that she might be killed. She has spent the past two years alone after all. She needs to be alone to avoid hurting anyone. But the girl, who is not supposed to know love, is taken away from the Royal Guard by the Dashing Gentleman Thief and her story of love is beginning.

A group of five youths have gathered in an empty club room with a sign saying “Earth Defence Club (lol)” at their school, an all-boys school. One day a pink wombat (CV: Mugihito) appears and makes the five Battle Lovers to protect earth from evil. The Earth Defence Club is made official with their dead teacher as their supervisor. At the same time the student council at Binan Koukou act as the evil with a green hedgehog called Zundar (CV: Hiroki Yasumoto) as their leader.
I’ll keep it short not to spoil the little story this show has. This show, called Cute High Earth Defence Club LOVE in English, is a great mahou shoujo parody that is really funny. It’s sadly unappreciated, but it’s actually a very good show, which is well done and doesn’t take itself seriously. The name of the school – Binan Koukou (translated to Cute High) – is roughly translated to Pretty Boy High School, which in itself just show how it’s not taking itself seriously.
I loved the show, because it’s well made and is spot-on on how it makes fun of mahou shoujo, doesn’t take itself seriously, and doesn’t repeat the exact same jokes every time. It even has a plot twist! I recommend this show to anyone and everyone. The only people that might want to stay clear of it are the people who gets embarrassed when they see boys transform in a really mahou shoujo-ish way. It was totally one of the best things that aired this winter season.
