Max, an average high school student, tries to get through life as himself. As a trans man (assigned female at birth), he's set on being the man he knows he is. What he doesn't know is that his mom descends from a long line of "Magical Girls"— a group of female protectors whose mission is to help save humanity . . . and she expects Max to join the charge. Now Max has to figure out how to take on the family tradition of becoming the next Magical Girl, but as a boy!
A hilarious and heartfelt riff of the Shōjo genre made popular by teen anime series, Magical Boy is a one-of-a-kind fantasy series that comic readers will love.
