. While the final two News Posts
have a tone of wanting to continue the comic, other points raised about being busy/unenthused and the author's total disappearance from the webcomic community shortly afterward most likely means the series will not be continued.
At least she got an And the Adventure Continues
ending of sorts in The Crossoverlord
Mechagical Girl Lisa ANT contains examples of:
- Ascended Fangirl: Lisa is a magical-girl fan who gets recruited to be a magical girl.
- Animesque: The style.
- Calling Your Attacks: Lisa doesn't need any catchphrases to activate her Powered Armor, but she's so into the magical-girl genre that she makes some up. Pink Flash uses them too, to enhance her more traditional magical-girl image.
- Cute Is Evil: Pink Flash, secretly working for the world-conquering aliens.
- The Ditz: Lisa.
- Filler Strips: There are some.
- Government Agency of Fiction: PET SHOP.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Between her alien-ant-robot costume and Pink Flash's propaganda, Lisa's heroic alter ego ANT is perceived as an "alien monster."
- Humongous Mecha: Relatively speaking. It's a human-sized mecha built by doll-sized aliens.
- In the Name of the Moon: As with any self-respecting Magical Girl, Lisa comes up with her own.
- Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: Nanoha and Vita appear in episode 3, a free samba lesson for kids. Along with many cameos from the girls of W.I.T.C.H..
- Living with the Villain: Lisa and Paula (a.k.a Pink Flash) don't live under the same roof, but attend the same school and share a few friends.
- Magical Girl: Lisa thinks she's one. Pink Flash really is one, albeit a Dark Magical Girl (she works for the termites).
- The Men in Black: Lisa's parents, who work for the aforementioned Government Agency of Fiction.
- Mentor Mascot: Io. Alien engineer, in the form of a cute doll-size ant-person.
- Powered Armor: The A.N.T. armor, when used by a human.
- Shout-Out: Lisa's room is full of them, including Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki, Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura. One strip also has them studying David Bowie's 1. Outside in literature class.
- Translation Convention: It's set in Copenhagen, Denmark.
- Unknown Rival: Lisa is too oblivious to realize that Pink Flash is her enemy.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Pink Flash. It helps that she looks the part of pink-and-frilly warrior of justice, while ANT looks like a scout for an upcoming Bug War.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: And she still insists on being such after everything she's been through.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Yeah, being a Magical Girl does not work like Lisa expected.
