A second cour was announced for a later date. My guess is either Summer or most likely Fall 2020. That’s why I’m saving the G-View till then. I will share some thoughts on the first half of the show near the end though.
We get a brief recap of Rie Kugimiya summarizing the goals of the organization then inviting Iroha to join. Iroha’s like “I just wanted to ask you about Ui”. Outside Mifuyu was either standing guard or as a fail safe to ensure Iroha joined.
Yachiyo: You may be my old friend but that’s my wife over there so back off.
Mifuyu: They need to know.
Yachiyo thought it’s too soon.
Mifuyu: They’re here because you let you them go…just like you let me go.”
Yachiyo: Shut up!
Mifuyu warped away and Iroha woke up but was immediately surprised by Yachiyo saying they’d break up.
Iroha: Huh? Hey! Where are you going? Tell me why. Did the Magius tell you something?
Yachiyo: No. It’s best we go our separate ways.
Iroha: That’s not a good enough explanation.
Yachiyo: You are such a pain.
Iroha: I’m not leaving you till you tell me what’s wrong.
Yachiyo: If you stay with me, you’ll die.
Iroha: What the? What does that mean?
Yachiyo: My mahou shoujo wish was to survive. That’s all…but because of it everyone who gets close to me dies. I don’t want anyone else I care about to die!
Suddenly Yachiyo got eaten by a Doodle.
Yachiyo (ID) told Yachiyo (Ego) about Yachiyo (Superego)’s wish to survive so she could lead and protect her friends but Yachiyo (ID) said her wish was to become so strong everyone would be safe when with her. If I got this correctly Kyubey twisted it where the only one to survive was Yachiyo. Part of Yachiyo may have had a “survival of the fittest” instinct. I could be wrong. Outside the Doodle Iroha was like “Give me back my woman you damn dirty worm!”
Badass Iroha rescued her woman. Iroha was ready save their cousin and babies but Yachiyo hesitated. Iroha responded in kind “If you think your precious ones die when they’re around you then I’ll make sure to prove that’s wrong. I’m the main character and I have a wife. I’m not going down that easily. I promise”
I didn’t think it was possible for Iroha to be any cuter. Then there’s this “My wife called me by first name” smile and my heart melted.
Their moment was sadly interrupted by Mami who at this point was about to lose “it”. Whether she’s gone mad or faking it was hard to say. What stood out to me was Iroha got KO’ed by Mami so her wife not only carried her but put up a good fight against Mami. That’s totes badass yo. Mami was no newb though. All seemed lost when…
Sayaka arrived. she was like “What is wrong with you?”. Mami was like “Huh? You’re alive? But I thought I did horrible things to you and Meduka? That’s right. Where’s Meduka? She must come here. She too must be saved. All megucas must be saved”
Then she rambled something about being deceived or it’s all a lie? Either Rie Kugimiya’s full of crap or her Dopple System is flawed. I’d say it’s both.
Two squee moments in one episode. Who knew Iroha’s inner gay was that strong? She was like “I have to help the meguca. I’m going Doppel. Don’t worry dear. I promise I’ll come back to you”
Super Iroha held her own against Mami but it still wasn’t enough. Yachiyo went Super also to change the tide. They fought well but Mami got a critical hit on Iroha. Iroha’s Doppel was about to take over.
Yachiyo’s like “NO!”, grabbed Mami and was like “Piss off bitch! I got a wife to save”. It’s hard to describe how cool and hilarious it was.

Rie Kugimiya’s recruitment speech…My poor gut. No. Just no. I’m saying it right now. So far Magia Record is better than Meduka Meguca. You can’t tell me otherwise. Oh my poor gut!
Let’s just say it’s going to be tougher to save the family than Yachiyo thought…
So far “Turn Meduka Meguca into an action series” is going quite well. A lot better than I thought at first. I wasn’t as excited as others initially but I’m a believer now. We’ll be back for more either Summer or Fall.
I hope Team Momoko will be alright.
