I didn’t know of the existence of Magical Girl Raising Project until I decided to watch the anime going into the end of last year. And I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Heck when I found out Yen Press who is also licensed the light novel Baccano, licensed the light novel for Magical Girl Raising Project I decided to buy it. And then I read it.
I don’t hate it. It was alright in its own right but I didn’t care about a lot of the characters in the book like I did the anime. The anime went into more detail and gave us at least some backstory or more time to see them shine. In the light novel, it fails in that regard as it seems like sometimes it either rushes through or barely gave us enough reason to care about most of characters. This is especially true for some characters who easily had more development in the anime.

A dark fairy tale

I actually prefer reading the novels when I can, so I like that so many of the top light novels are becoming available now.
Magical Girl Raising Project is one of several magical girl deconstructions, focusing on the dark undertones that would be present in the absurd situations calling young girls to fight overpowered battles. Each story arc is about a GROUP of girls who are given powers and then inevitably have to fight to the death, either from individual power-madness or manipulation. There are always a LOT of characters to keep track of. However, as the novels go, each round only lasts a couple of books, then you have the choice to stop. Taken from the long view, there is an overarching theme starting in this first story arc and lightly threaded through those to follow, so there's a payoff of delving deeper into the larger system that's giving girls magical powers in the first place. But if you want to stop, each story arc has a neat closure that makes it easy to walk away.
