Webcomic: Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki

Never send a man to do a girl's job... unless you change him into a girl first.

"Repeat after me: Despite what magical girl anime has taught me, the monster does not go down with the first strike."
Hermod, Messenger of the Gods

Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki is a transformation webcomic by Kittyhawk, and is a shameless parody of the Magical Girl genre - namely, the main character has been hit with a Gender Bender and now must fight evil with a phallic-shaped smiting hammer in the hopes of getting his manhood back.

Updates infrequently, but provides a whole 'episode' with each update. Updates news about convention tours and merchandise far more frequently, if you're interested! (Although Kittyhawk has also started to do semi-regular sketch parties, so there's that.)

Kittyhawk attributes her art style from Japanese mangaka group CLAMP and American cartoonist like Tex Avery.

This ain't no Sailor Moon that's for sure.

Now has a Character Page

The comic provides examples of the following tropes:

  • A Wizard Did It: Lampshaded
    Yuuki:: Wait, did I just accept "Magic" as an answer?
    Chiaki: Got a better one?
    Yuuki:: No...
  • Bad Vibrations: "Note to self: Jiggle = bad stuff"
  • Battle Interrupting Shout: Right here.
  • Bifauxnen: Averted. Yuuki tried to achieve this effect by binding his breasts and wearing a boy's uniform. It didn't work due to his Most Common Superpower
  • Big Bad: Surt
  • Big "NO!": When Yuuki discovers he's now a woman full-time.
  • Bilingual Bonus: For one thing, those runes on Yuuki's belt? That's a contraceptive spell. Never mentioned or used in the comic. Word of God is this was unintentional but funny - the runes were supposed to signify things about Yuuki corresponding to their associated meanings.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Ah Freya. Ripping off Yuki's clothing and putting a finger up his/"her" skirt.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Loki does this once- "Excuse me, but for the sake of the viewers, can we make this battle not last 50 billion pages like the wolves battle?"
  • Buffy Speak: On a scale of one to bad... that's pretty fucked up.
  • Butch Lesbian: Otsana especially the part where she almost kissed Shebi
  • Clothing Damage:
    • Loki's preferred attack.
    • Also happens during Yuuki's battle with Freya in this strip, leading to a bit of unwanted contact from Freya, and again much later to Otsana after Yuuki (who is possibly Not Himself at the time) makes the ribbons on his uniform ensnare her and start absorbing her "armor".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Hermod.
  • Deus ex Machina: The "I Can't Go To School Looking Like A Girl!" problem is solved by one. It is then lampshaded by Hermod.
    • Events in Edda 13 suggest that this may be a very literal example, seeing that one of the students there is reporting directly to Loki about Yuuki.
  • Dirty Old Man: Loki, a pervert and one of oldest beings in existence, probably qualifies.
  • Disappeared Dad: Yuuki, whose father is constantly away on business
  • The Ditz: Chiaki.
  • Drop the Hammer: Yuuki's weapon. Thor is trying to teach him to use it properly. Otsana uses a club, which is sorta related.
  • E.T. Gave Us Wi-Fi: Okay, not exactly aliens, but Hermod did inspire people to develop better ways of communication, due to being tired from having to run around delivering messages all the time.
  • Eyelid Pull Taunt: Done by Hermod in this page
  • Fangirl, Fan Boy: Chiaki and Yuuki for magical girls, though Yuuki might be a male Fangirl.
  • Fanservice: Looooooooaaaaaads of it. Hell, it'd be easier to list what isn't Fanservice. A quick look through indicates a ratio of around three fanservicey pages to one non-fanservicey page.
  • First Law of Gender-Bending: When Hermod tells Yuuki he can't undo the gender bending.
  • Frilly Upgrade:
    • lampshaded. This is possibly a reference/in-joke to the fact that Fenris was contained, not by chains (he broke them all), but by a magic ribbon. Therefore, mythology in-joke.
    • Foreshadowing: Yuuki's rather squick-y costume manipulation involving his ribbon.
  • Fun Size: The giant bull that Yuuki fights in the beginning. Is now a cute little critter, barely bigger than a house cat.
  • Fun T-Shirt: Guess which norse god is depicted at one point with a t-shirt saying "Lightning, Fuck yeah!"?
  • Gender Bender: One of the main character's primary motivations is reversing the effect of this.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Yuuki (Courage), while a male name, is very similar to the feminine Yuki (Hope or snow, depending on the characters).
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: ironically averted with Surtur, who was this in the original mythology; this version of the character does have a reason (if a silly one) to hate the Aesir and try to kill them.
  • Genre Savvy: Most of the characters have this to some extent, though they manifest it differently.
