Back to the madness we go.
We’ll keep the Nijimi visit scene short. She wanted Aya’s head for lying to her about Shioi. Suddenly for no good reason she got a crush on Garbage Boy. Nijimi tried holding back her anger towards Aya while Garbage Boy was being Garbage Boy by planning to use her for his wicked schemes. Again I couldn’t care less about his storyline. The same goes for AniTwitter Guy who was bawling his eyes out seeing his “precious” gushing over another guy. You know, idol purity and all that crap. That or he wants Nijimi’s booty. Whatever.
On to things that actually matter we join the eye patch girl. Turns out she didn’t come to kill Shioi but heal her with her blood. Her pocket knife Stick gave her blood healing properties. Thus Rina Shioi recovered from her coma.
The healer, Kosame Amagai, is prone to cutting herself before she stumbled upon the Magical Girl Site. She also has periodic panic attacks. Probably part of an abusive family.
Kosame’s first big reveal was that Frieza wasn’t the only freaky Magical Girl Site Admin. In fact there was a whole organization of them running their own Magical Girl Sites and recruiting unfortunate girls as part of their ultimate scheme.
Besides Shioi Kosame also healed Aya and Tsuyuno. She explained that her team needed their help to find out what the admins were planning and stop them. We then got a bit more information on the Tempest. Long story short it’s coming on August 11th, 7:23 PM and would wipe out most of humanity. There WAS a way for someone to avoid being part of the purge: By offering a Stick full of negative energy. While there was plenty of that around the world…readers who were paying attention know why this won’t work. So Kosame’s plan was to gather a group of magical girls then find and capture an admin to get information on the organization’s scheme.
Like Rory when Kosame’s teammates were introduced this magical girl interested me the most. He knows why but for me it’s because she’s the hottest and a swordswoman.
I have a question. If the admins’ goal is for the unfortunate magical girls to go around gathering energy and ultimately kill each other then why include a “backdoor” to uncover information on the Tempest and later their scheme? My best guess is they only counted on the girls who found the “backdoor” to become paranoid killers who will go around gathering Sticks but not figure out the truth.
After Shioi left Aya and Tsuyuno to search for an admin they took a break to talk about Tsuyuno’s revenge. She basically told Aya about the murderer and her plan of torturing him and suffer a slow, painful death. As we all know Sarina the magical bully cut her revenge short last time. Thankfully Tsuyuno found a new reason to keep on living. Take a wild guess. The episode ended with Aya convincing her parents to have Tsuyuno stay with them for a while.
Episode 7 kicked off with a “Oh. One more thing” moment as Kosame told our heroines…and Shioi that although she healed their wounds she didn’t extend their lifespan. No matter how healthy they were their lives were still cut short the moment they became magical girls. Knowing this Tsuyuno still wanted to take down the admins before their untimely deaths.
Not much to add to this teammate of Kosame’s yet. She’s an ojou-sama with a hot bod along with an equally hot ego and equally horny masochist butler.
This next magical girl reminds me of a certain someone from Magical Girl Raising Project. This person kept a secret that was unfortunately discovered. Kosame wondered why the person didn’t use their power to get back at the bullies to which they responded that their time would come. Once the bullies established a stable life and created families of their own…they would strike.
Before our heroines…and Shioi were to meet up with Kosame’s team there was one more girl they needed to recruit. Unfortunately this girl had a very strong grudge. Luckily they made a deal…
Anyone surprised by this hasn’t watched much anime…or television. Nijimi was pleased to see the new transfer student. Veeeeery pleased.
I don’t blame you Aya. It was either that or a messy(-ier) classroom.
Later that day our heroines managed to drag Shioi and Nijimi to the meeting spot. There they were formally introduced to Kosame’s team.
- Mikari Izumigamine. She has a mach speed flying broom though nowhere near as fast as Top Speed.
- Sayuki Ringa. She can harden whatever she cuts.
- Kiyoharu, Kiyo for short, can read minds and communicate with others with her mind. Kiyo is also a cross-dressing boy. Transgender perhaps like that other magical girl I eluded to?
Lastly there’s Asahi Takiguchi. She has superhuman abilities such as super speed. One would hope Kosame’s team is a more cohesive unit…I refer readers to my previous comment regarding television. The plan, in short, was to capture an admin and have Kiyo read their mind.
We then joined Sarina still thinking about her fight against Aya. when she went to look up the site again Frieza was waiting. It demanded the Sticks Sarina gathered but she refused wanting to kill “those girls” first. Frieza warned her not to get any bright ideas and then disappeared.
Cut to our heroines taking a bath together and having a lovers spat.
While we were blessed with Shioi’s deliciousness our friend Rory pointed out that our heroines were all alone in the manga. Oh well. At least we got parts of the lovers spat intact so no biggie.
The episode ended with Aya getting a call from Kosame but what she had to say wasn’t good at all. Earlier when Kiyo met Tsuyuno he most likely saw something really bad inside her mind. We’ll find out what Kosame’s message was and the favor Aya asked of Kiyo and her next time.
