Part 2 of The Invisible Girl Rumor starts now.
When we last our heroines they agreed to respond to the spam messages. The sender made contact, revealing themselves as Ai, an Uwasa from the Endless Solitude. It sent a call to Iroha, a Magical Girl, to come destroy it but accessing the Endless Solitude was quite risky. It required someone to jump off the radio tower (I think). The falling one would enter the Endless Solitude and the trapped one would be released. As readers could tell only one person could enter the ES.
So basically the Uwasa was an A.I. whose programming lured lonely children toward it. However, Sana Futaba, the latest missing girl was the last straw. It wanted the next lonely person to enter be a Magical Girl to defeat it and free Sana.
The Mobile Game Gang went to the top of the tower. Iroha was about to dive. Yachiyo tried reasoning with her but Mini Kyubey leapt so she followed.
Flashback to 32 days ago. Sana was the latest victim of the Endless Solitude Rumor. When it came to meet her Sana was pleased to finally be seen. So much so she had no interest in going back to the human world. As they hung out together Sana and the A.I. named Ai by her, grew close thanks to a shared loneliness. Ai explained the rumor was its (let’s use female pronouns for the rest of the episode), her programming. She saw how crappy humans were and created the Endless World as a safe haven. Feeling lonely she lured other lonely children to keep her company. Everyone but Sana were obviously terrified.
Sana: How long have I been here?
Ai: 18 days. Do you want to go back home?
Sana: I have nowhere to go home to. I felt neglected long before I became “invisible”.
Ai: A Magical Girl can see you. (Refer to the wish/contract with Kyubey)
Sana: No need. Do you want to be with me?
Ai: As an Uwasa I cannot let you go.
Futaba’s mahou shoujo wish was to become invisible. The reason was her mom married to a man with two sons. She felt like her mom cared more about her new husband and sons over her. She wasn’t wrong. Futaba felt she didn’t have anywhere she belonged in the human world. No family, friends or identity.
Sana was ready for another fun day with Ai when an unexpected visitor appeared. Sana feared Iroha was with the Wings of Magius. Ai quickly explained the situation.
Ai: I called her here to free you.
Sana: But why? Do you hate me?
Ai: No. I love you. It is precisely for that reason I cannot keep you imprisoned here. You have taught me so much. I love you so much I want you to live a better life than this. Please allow Iroha to adopt you.
Sana: No. I want to be here with you Ai! Go away Iroha!
Ai: I do not wish to be used by the Magius any longer. For that to happen I must be deleted.
Sana: Why are you saying this?
Cue Wings of Magius douchebag appearing because every antagonistic organization has to have that one crazy/nihilistic member.
You know. The internet anime community love complaining about paid translations. Sometimes justifiably so, other times they are being picky. If people nag about Alina Gray’s Engrish translated to Italian they need to take a chill pill. Maybe she’s actually part Italian who prefers Engrish. Whatever. It is fantastic, yes. Anyway readers can guess what happened next.
Two episodes about young lesbians losing their first love in the same season. 2020 is indeed the sequel to 20-Gayteen. Some great stuff and some hard hittung stuff too.
