Magia Record Episode 4: Shrine Hunting

Coordinator eating cheesecake

To each their own I suppose.

Kaede feeding Rena

Kaede: Less whining, more eating dear.

In case you were distracted by the girls’ eating Iroha was asking about other rumors of people disappearing in hopes one of them could lead her to Ui. Meduka Belfast (Coordinator) handed her a flier to the Banbanzai Chinese Restaurant.

Tsuruno Yui

Tsuruno Yui.

There she met a Power Type Mahou Shoujo Tsuruno Yui.

Iroha staring

Just felt like sharing a pic of Iroha sitting quietly. She’s at her cutest sitting quietly, which is very often.

Unfortunately Tsuruno didn’t know much about rumors but she knew someone who did. Iroha just so happened to already be acquainted with them.

Iroha, Tsuruno and Yachiyo

Yachiyo mentions another rumor she’s investigating.

This familiar person mentioned another rumor, the Seance Shrine. Put simply people who visited the shrine would find someone they forgot about or were searching for but once there they would never leave the shrine. The trio visited a shrine but it wasn’t the right one. Fortunately instead of going on a wild goose chase Tsuruno found a clue to lessen the hassle.

Blonde wanting to beat up Iroha

Guess we’ll find out what this girl’s problem is with Iroha another time. As always no game spoilers.

Mizuna Marriage Spot legend

Mizuna Marriage Spot legend.

During their search Yachiyo told the legend of a couple in the daimyo period. They hooked up but the woman’s fiance axed her other lover. For 1500 days she prayed to see him again. However, although she did meet him she sacrificed one person each day before it happened. That and the guy may have returned as a ghost. The moral probably being “sacrifices must be made for miracles to come true”.

Sadly the Marriage Spot map Tsuruno found was a wild goose chase after all.

Yachiyo remembered something important

Yachiyo remembered something important.

Yachiyo took the girls to a supermarket when suddenly she remembered something important.

Supermarket Witch

Supermarket Doodle.

Unfortunately Killer Doodles were shopping that day so Yachiyo’s important mission was ruined. Iroha tried taking on the Doodle but it was too nimble. The duo were trapped when viewers remembered there were three girls.

Magical Girl Tsuruno

The Mightiest Magical Girl Tsuruno.

After defeating the Doodle Yachiyo figured out something. The first shrine was the correct one but had to be visited at night to trigger the curse.

Shadow Doodles attacking Tsuruno

Shadow Doodles attacking Tsuruno.

Tsuruno was attacked by what I assume were Shadow Doodles like the ones from the staircase. She kept them at bay as Iroha and Yachiyo wrote the names of the people they wanted to meet. We’ll see what happens to them and the names they wrote next time.

    “In case you were distracted by the girls’ eating Iroha” Hoo boy, did I misread that when I first read it.

    I quite like Tsuruno!
    And looks like yachiyo has someone who she liked that got eaten up by things in some way. But Tsuruno liked her too. Should be interesting to see if/when said girl returns, there will be a love triangle going, or Tsuruno was the one for the silver haired girl. Or if both of them were not the one the silver haired girl was after. Lots of possibilities!
    I know you said it on Twitter, but I’d have to say I’ve been liking Iroha more than Madoka. Sadly, that’s mostly because Homura did everything she could to get the Madoka we saw to being like she was. So for story reasons, she was pretty bland.
    That eating scene was adorable ❤

      Tsuruno’s fun.

      Interested in the interactions the two will have with the girls they’re looking for, their illusions or whatever they are.

      Yup. Coordinator eating was cute. Rena and Kaede too of course.

    Ketchup on a cheesecake is a terrible combination. I guess this is a sign that Mitama’s cooking is terrible. Still, at least there is a nice moment with Rena and Kaede. They are a cute pairing.

    It’s not too surprising why Iroha looks adorable. Aoki Ume’s character designs are usually cute, more so since the animation has improved since 9 years ago.

      It was an amusing sight. The ketchup plum cheesecake.

      Rena and Kaede are cute with Kaede being the clear top.

      The presentation got better and better nearly a decade later. Great stuff!

  4. I really like Tsuruno! Also I like her idea of “normal servings”. Looks like you’ll be full once you’re done eating the food in her restaurant.
    Noticed that she sometimes calls yachiyo as “shishou”. Yachiyo must be someone Tsuruno respects/looks up to very much!

    I admit I didn’t pay attention to their conversation. Too busy watching Kaede, Momoko and Coordinator. Ketchup and dried plum on cheesecake, wonder what does it taste like. Tsuruno is fun, so far. I don’t know, I have this bad feeling about her. And that’s a normal portion for Chinese Restaurant. Thank god, I thought I forgot who are those girls in front of the school. It’s kinda weird, but okay. Doodles went shopping, that’s funny. Maybe the supermarket is Yachiyo’s Doodles usually show up. Like Iroha and her public transportation. I like Iroha more than Meduka, yes. She’s very quiet. It makes her more interesting. Also was that really Ui? We’ll find out soon.

      Huh. I thought it was a meatball. A plum kinda makes more sense.

      Hard to tell with Tsuruno. We shall see.

      I don’t remember them appearing in the first episode. If they did I didn’t notice.

      That could very well be the case. There has to be a reason the Doodles show up where they do. At least I think there is.

      Yup. Although I get why Meduka complained a lot I still think Iroha is a better protagonist than her so far.

      Very interested in what will happen next.

    Finally watched this ep, so long overdue comment.

    Yui is a cute and high energy girl. Nice to see.

    Ketchup on the cake was too much. Someone should’ve stopped her.

    The blonde girl yelling at Iroha as she walked by the school had me super confused. I’m assuming that’s a game related thing? Honestly at this point anything that confuses me I’ll just assume it’s a game related thing.

    The shopping scene was fun. Gotta get those sales!!!
