''[[http://www.improfanfic.com/mgh/ Magical Girl Hunters]]'' is a dark comedy RoundRobin story originally created on Improfanfic. It follows the exploits of a pair of sociopaths, Yoi and Itami, who have established a business killing [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]]. Within the context of the story, Magical Girls are being produced at a prodigious rate, to the point where they're running out of original concepts and proper evil enemies. Therefore, some magical girls have decided to branch out into more broad social evils such as polluting corporations. These corporations, unhappy to have their factories trashed by [[KnightTemplar magical forces of goodness]] occasionally hire Yoi and Itami to rid them of their problems. Occasionally dark forces also hire Yoi and Itami. Some of the dark forces also support their own teams of magical girls... by the end of the story, it's become a grand battle of good and evil and Yoi and Itami are in it for more than just the money.

!! This series provides examples of:

* AirVentPassageway: Yoi's entry and escape into the Mashihaishi Ultra building. He gets lost a few times, but since he runs into others also using the vents (at least one of which has been crawling in them for several years and was engaged to kill the prior owner of the complex), he's able to get directions.
* ChildSoldier: Almost all magical girls are treated as this by whoever empowered them. And, just like with real-life recruiting, there's a portion of them in their to fight for their ideal and a portion that just likes the license to kill things...
* DarkMagicalGirl: Multiple cases. Pretty Deadly and Sailor H are both cases of magical girls who felt abandoned and have thus turned to killing magical girls themselves.
* EarWorm: Princess Love's Happy Healing Song is treated as this InUniverse. Neither Yoi nor Itami can take it out of their heads. Much cursing ensues because of this.
* EldritchAbomination: The Sailor Shoggoths
* EnemyWithin: Yoi has [[spoiler:Koi]] who starts out as a typo in one of the chapters, turns into a split personality, and eventually becomes an [[EnemyWithout independent entity.]]
* EnfanteTerrible: Captain Kawaii... *shudder*
* EvilWeapon: Itami wields one of these. When the first one breaks, he acquires another one in short order.
* GenderBender: Early in the series, [[spoiler:Yoi]] gets turned into a Magical Girl temporarily. One of the "fixes" they acquire makes it permanent. Mai and Kyo provide another example. One is male and one is female. They've forgotten which is which because they tend to switch every time they die.
* GenreSavvy: One of the only ways Yoi and Itami have survived taking on the magical girls is their ability to exploit the aspects of the MagicalGirl genre.
* SociopathicHero: Both Yoi and Itami could be considered this. Or possibly [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]]. They slaughter little girls for money, Itami is a stone-cold killer who's been mentioned to have "played doctor" back in school with real knives, and Yoi [[spoiler:is unawares the embodiment of chaos and entropy]].
* IncrediblyObviousBomb: In one of the chapters, Yoi comes back to find a bomb taped to the doorway of the office. In plain view.
* KilledMidSentence: The very first scene begins with a Magical Girl making her dramatic entrance, complete with song, and getting headshotted before she can finish the first verse.
* KnifeNut: Both of the protagonists carry knives because "knives don't jam or run out of ammo" but Itami stands out for preferring to use his knife or sword on the girls they hunt.
* KnightTemplar: Due to niche overcrowding, there are magical girls devoted to stopping littering or illegal software downloads. With deadly force if necessary.
* MayDecemberRomance: [[spoiler:Itami/Sailor H, Yoi/Aika.]]
* MoreDakka: The other major reason Yoi and Itami survive their encounters with magical girls is that they have no fear of bringing in heavy weaponry.
* NeckSnap: Used for the second kill in the series. One-handed. With a NeckLift. Of course, the target is also [[spoiler:an 8-year-old girl]]...
* OfCorpseHesAlive: Pretty Marshall Rose's body is used to sneak their way through a complex.
* PaperThinDisguise: After Yoi [[spoiler:steals money from Mashihaishi Ultra,]] he's visited by a very badly disguised youma.
--> It stood there, sorta lopsided, dressed in a trenchcoat... it had a black wig over its head, and under that I could see a cheap plastic mask, of which the lower jaw area had been cut free so the “mouth” could appear to move. The best part, however, was the sloppily-lettered bit of cardboard hanging from its shoulders by a strand of twine, that read, “Me Itami.”
* PinkMist: Frequent descriptor for headshots on the magical girls.
* TimeStandsStill: The duo makes good use of an unexpected time-freeze to dispose of the [[ColourCodedCharacters Crayola Knights]]. Given that there were ''sixty-four'' of them and they were introduced as a very nasty cliffhanger in the previous chapter ("Screw Your Neighbour" was an established policy in the writing at the time), the alternatives would have been less than pleasant.
* TomeOfEldritchLore: The Necronomicute

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: As is often the case in a RoundRobin story, there are several of these. Itami revealing that his laconic speech patterns were the result of a jaw injury was one that [[CanonDisContinuity was not mentioned in all following parts]]. The magical flying tech-dwarves were, surprisingly enough, integrated into the story smoothly.



* FetishFuel: Sailor H. Full stop.
--> She stood there, dressed in the same garb as most other Magic Girls – the boots, the gloves, way-too-short skirt, etc, etc – only with a few big differences. 1: Instead of being colored in some eye-gouging citrus or pastel hue, her outfit was entirely black. 2: There was no cloth here, just vinyl and rubber. 3: She had no wand or other cutesy weapon – just a big leather whip, which she was currently readying for another strike at Pretty Marshal Rose. It was definitely, to my chagrin, Sailor H. Well, at least from down where I was, I had a pretty good view of her black vinyl panties.



* {{Squick}}: Aside from the general business of their job, both Yoi and Itami wind up involved with magical girls. Very sweet and touching until you remember that the magical girls in question have been described as around the age of 13-14.
** Aika turned seventeen in the course of the story, and while H's age isn't mentioned she seems to be at least as old as Aika. Which still makes them JailBait; but not Squick... compared to everything ''else'' in the story.
* TimeStandsStill: The duo makes good use of an unexpected time-freeze to dispose of the CrayolaKnights. Given that there were ''sixty-four'' of them and they were introduced as a very nasty cliffhanger in the previous chapter ("Screw Your Neighbour" was an established policy at the time), the alternatives would have been less than pleasant.
