More magical girls and chaotic predicaments this episode.
A group of magical girls were in stealth mode watching the Killer Doodle show but one was like “Screw stealth! KILL THEM ALL!”
Suffice to say Felicia’s “smash first, ask questions never” was met with criticism as we’d later find out.
Iroha had breakfast with Yachiyo. she thanked her for purifying her Soul Gem last time. Yachiyo was like “Don’t mention it” (In her head she remembered Witch Iroha and was like “Seriously, don’t mention it again”). Iroha planned on continuing her search for Ui in Kamihama and Yachiyo warned her not to use her powers or let anyone know she’s a magical girl.
The search led her somewhere one would normally stay away from but she went in. How she was unfazed by the creepy stuff around her I’ll never know. Must be a magical girl trait. Anyhoo she was invited to try out the so called Lucky Owl Water. For some reason Felicia was there too. Both took a sip, which of course was a bad idea but more on that later. On her way out Felicia noticed the magical girl ring and insignia on Iroha’s nail. Felicia charged her a toll but they were interrupted.
After disposing of the Witches Felicia charged her a protection fee and Iroha was like “How about I treat you to ice cream instead?”
We cut to Yachiyo dropping by Coordinator’s pad for info on other rumors. Felicia’s a wanted girl for her recklessness. She was about to get info on the lucky water when she sensed another visitor.
Not much to say about Kyouko and Yachiyo’s discussion. Kyouko heard about the abundance of Witches in Kamihama and wanted in on the action. Yachiyo was like “Go ahead but don’t cause trouble for other magical girls”.
Back to Iroha and Felicia. Their day was full of super luck. Pay attention to the numbers counting down each time they won big. Felicia introduced herself as a mercenary to Iroha earlier and now that she had more money offered to become her bodyguard. She also explained the reason she became a mercenary was to get revenge on all Witched for murdering her family.
Later they rendezvoused with Yachiyo and Tsuruno, the former warning Iroha of Felicia’s bad reputation. However, she’s more worried the two drank the lucky water. Basically after getting lucky 24 times the drinker would suddenly be flooded with overwhelmingly bad luck. To avoid this they needed to drink more luck water. Felicia and Yachiyo bickered over the rumor and Iroha calmed down the former by hiring her.
Yachiyo wanted to gather information but Felicia preferred doing things her way. It didn’t go well. She got scolded for not protecting Iroha. I’m not 100% sure but this is the first time the new enemies were referred to as “Uwasa”. The girls found the Uwasa selling Lucky Water but it seemed not everyone noticed it. Not even our heroines initially. In any case they gave chase.
They followed it to a tunnel but were stopped by shadowy figures. They offered more water in exchange for letting the Uwasa be. Tsuruno asked for the missing magical girls and they said they’re safe with the Magius who promised to get rid of all Witches.
Felicia was like “Get rid of all Witches, you say? Tell me more”.
Solid episode. I feel indifferent toward Felicia. For now she’s a dollar store Kyouko.
