Review of Hyperdolls (1995)

Moving picture, 80 minutes

Two satellite-powered aliens disguised as school girls easily defeat intellectually challenged monsters in modern Japan. One boy knows their identity, but is too scared to reveal it. Even the girls' commander—who chooses to communicate through food—has only one way to make them do stuff: The threat of changing their shtick to something even more ridiculous.

Mahou shōjo team and Ultraman parody. The unquestionable invincibility of the leading girls is enshrined in the full title: Rakushou! Hyperdoll: Mew & Mica The Easy Fighter, where rakushou means “easy victory”. Beware of ugly gender roles: When the osananajimi is violently pushed onto a bed, she closes her eyes and waits.
