Magia Record Episode 11: Creepy Visit

Iroha and Yachiyo’s second daughter dropped a huge bombshell in the last episode. Let’s take a look at what happened.

Iroha thinking

Iroha thinking. Did I already mention she’s adorable when looking puzzled?

The best part of the intro scene was the Twin’s fingers. You’ll know it when you see them.

Cousin Tsuruno trying to snuggle with Yachiyo. Yachiyo’s like, “My wife’s right there, you know”.

Sana heard the hooded Wings (Black Feathers or something) mention Nemu’s cooperation. Felicia was like “Let’s capture one of them and make her talk”. The question was where to find them. Iroha remembered seeing one of the Twins, hence why she’s at the front gate of the school they went to.

Iroha about to interrogate the Tsukuyo Twin

Gotcha.

Iroha caught the twin, Akatsuki Tsukuyo. She managed to reason with her, as a fellow sister, to take her to where Nemu was. However, she had to consult with Mifuyu first.

Iroha with her hair down. Noice.

Sana wanted to buy matching coasters for their special mugs. They kept it a secret from Mama Yachiyo.

Rose Witches

Guess the Doodles went shopping again.

Boss Witch Intro

Oh yeah. Get ready for another epic encounter.

Witch Defeated

Aaaaaaand the battle was off-screen. Must have used one of those Stage skip items some Mobile JRPGs use, like Magia Record. Iroha was doing her part to prepare the big surprise when the doorbell rang.

Mifuyu in Iroha's house

This is not Yachiyo.

After what felt like an eternity Iroha offered to make tea but Mifuyu was like “Please. I have been coming here for seven years. How sad I am treated like a guest. Surely I would know my way around the place better than you.” Ouch.

Mifuyu grabbing her mug

Mifuyu grabbing her mug.

No need to go over the conversation in detail. It was creepy. Let’s just sum up the reason for her visit: “You want to meet Nemu? Join The Wings of Magius. That way you can freely search for her without us fighting each other”.

Mifuyu knew they were there

Mifuyu knew they were there.

She moved on to the other reason she came, invite Iroha’s Family to a lecture of what it was her organization was fighting for.

Mifuyu sort of taunting Yachiyo

Mifuyu sort of taunting Yachiyo.

Things got heated when Yachiyo came back. Mifuyu sort of taunted her. “I see you made friends again. You know what will happen, right?” Yachiyo demanded she left.

Witch Yachiyo

Something tells me this was what Mifuyu alluded to…

Looks like Iroha and Kaede weren’t the only ones with a Doodle “friend” lurking inside.

Momoko and the Coordinator giving Iroha directions

Momoko and Coordinator helping Iroha.

Iroha visited the Coordinator where she and Momoko helped her find the location of the lecture. It was the Memory Museum. To no one’s surprise an Uwasa was there. Speaking of Momoko she went to meet with Rena. She’s about to tell her the same thing our heroines would learn about in the lecture. What happened to Iroha, Kaede, Yachiyo and other Magical Girls a year ago.

Touka The Magius

Rie Kugimiya The Magius.

Back to our heroines sans Yachiyo (She’ll come later for sure.) they platformed their way to the lecture hall where they were greeted by Touka, one of the Magius. Either Nemu and Ui are the other two Magius or they’re part of the organization. That or Ui is Mini-Kyubey.

As always no game spoilers.

  1. A bit let down with Gertrud, I was really hyped because damn, its a witch from the OG series!
    I was really getting into it when they showed the entrance to her labyrinth and the Anthony familiars….
    aaand skipped. Oh well, Considering how this show handles fights maybe it’s for the best….

    Rest of the episode though? Good stuff!
    Akatsuki trying to hide by covering her face with a bag is hilarious, I love it.
    Mifuyu dropping by and trying to get Iroha into their team was a great scene I think. While being able to search for her sister unimpeded by the Magius would be nice, they’re still spreading witches and uwasa around, and Iroha’s not easily swayed.
    If I had to guess Yachiyo previously went super mode and it either heavily injured/killed whoever she was fighting alongside with at the time (that third girl we saw in Mifuyu’s flashback last ep? hmmmm)

    More than creepy it was awkward, an encounter with the ex of your girlfriend is definitely troublesome, specially when she shows up.

    Touka has the same last name as the name of the hospital they were in the flashbacks, I wonder if her family owns it. Anyway, I’m gonna ship her with Nemu because she looks really fine in that last shot and she needs a partner.

    Como jode la ex de Yachiyo, por cierto, me sonó en la cabeza un tema de “la rosa de guadalupe” cuando Mifuyu aparecio en la casa de la familia Tamaki. Alguien deberia jugar con eso.

    Yikes, 7 years in that dorm. I’m guessing I was right about her being in her 20s.
    Because I’m crazy, I’ve started cobbling a theory together that Ui IS Iroha. There were things said that seemed very off, and started me in this mad mad direction.
    Iroha is a WAY more clever protag than Madoka was. She’s quite a different sort of person. And rather different for a main character in a magical girl show really.

      Yachiyo is 19 so Mifuyu is somewhere around that range.

      That’s another interesting theory.

      I like Iroha more because she’s less mopey or uncertain. Plus cuter.

        I dunno about Yachiyo being 19. That’d mean she was 12 when they moved into a dorm all by their lonesome selves. I’m finding that one hard to believe. Her saying she’s 19 to keep things from getting complicated, that I can more easily accept.

    I mean Iroha is adorable and all but we still need to give credits to the Tsukuyo Twins, especially Akatsuki, she’s so precious. Oh and Dollar Store Kyouko is hella cute as well.

    My interpretation of the last part of Mifuyu’s words as “Hun, you still don’t want to join me because you really love that small and pink little girl that’s now using MY room in OUR house”. Also, I’d definitely sway under Mifuyu’s words, nothing convinces me faster than her kind, soothing voice.

    Magia Record surpassed my expectations. I’m enjoying it more than the original. Iroha is my favorite protagonist. She’s so calm and quiet. Different from the usual genki and always the positive protagonist. My money on Ui is Kyubey. That encounter with Mifuyu kinda creepy and awkward. It’s like watching a mafia movie. A big mind games. Also, I gotta say the off-screen battle was funny. It was like, hey, I don’t have time to animate you. We know Yachiyo is gonna show up soon. Maybe right after accidentally found her coasters. Looking forward to it. I guess two more episodes, right?

      I love Iroha. Bless her.

      Mifuyu’s visit sent shivers down my spine until she teased Yachiyo. Then she was acting like a jealous ex.

      I think I read somewhere it’ll be a 2-cour show. Not sure.

    It’s interesting to see the witch that is from the original series showing up at nowhere.

    But yes, I wonder why Yachiyo seems to act strange around Mifuyu. Probably a bad breakup or something? Still, I don’t really trust Mifuyu, especially since she spoked me from getting Ultimate Madoka.I have a bad feeling that she is trying to recruit Iroha and her friends to the Wings of Magus.

    Tsukuyo’s reactions were funny and cute. Also, Tsuruno’s antics had me giggling.

    I wouldn’t want to be in Iroha’s position at all. There was nothing she could’ve said against Mifuyu, aside from willingly joining the WoM. When Yachiyo came home however, Mifuyu was just so brutal and mean but I get it, jealously’s a serious drug and all that. Ultimately, Sana’s surprise for Yachiyo was ruined.

    On another serious note, it seems like Yachiyo’s Witch Form would love to meet her new friends. Such a meeting would end in some sort of disaster, I’m sure, hence why our cool, modeling beauty’s trying to act like she ain’t close to those girls.

    Since it’s Touka they ran into, I guess it’s a safe bet that Nemu’s a Magius as well. Also, it didn’t cross my mind that Ui might be that Kyubey that hangs around Iroha but if that’s the case, how could she have ended up in such a state?

    That witch they off-screened was from the original series? I had forgotten about it and that explains why they got a Grief Seed afterwards. Also, Witches are such chumps in this series.

    damn you Mifuyu, ruin the moment when Iroha’s group have a fun surprise for Yachiyo.

    oh, Tsukuyo is not brave when she is alone and have no witch to summon. Funny when she thought Iroha is gonna torture her.

    wow, so Yacchan is a model? well, she’s a tall and beautiful girl so the job fits her.

    and lastly. Touka is sexy. ><

    “Cousin Tsuruno trying to snuggle with Yachiyo.” Haha that’s subtle.
