Things ramped up even more than the last episode if that’s possible.
The good news was Kuroe didn’t have to sacrifice herself as she held her own against Magius security. The bad news was the Doppel power messing with her head. Kuroe mentioned how her weakness brought her suffering before. Maybe we’ll get a bigger picture soon.
I assume the magical girls shown during the battle in Meguca Land were 1-3 Star pulls from the mobile game. I liked this design the most.
Sana and Felicia were able to convince Mifuyu to help them leave Magius, showing her there can be a second chance. She wanted to at least get Tsuruno out of there too before joining. She first tried to reason with Loli Dictator but no go. Nemu had her own goal so she couldn’t do much. Tsuruno sadly became a Magius puppet so she’d need an extra hard whacking but Mifuyu wasn’t ready. She’s beaten and transported somewhere else where the fan favorite nihilist for reasons I don’t care to know threw her a Grief Seed out of pity as she just wanted to see the chaos unfold. She felt indifferent toward other meguca.
We knew this would happen sooner or later. Yachiyo made her own path to the castle when she ran into Team Meduka. Sayaka recognized her from their encounter in the first cour. Yachiyo caught them up to speed on the situation and they told her about their mission to rescue Mami, knowing full well they’d have to fight her. While hitching a ride on a train Yachiyo called her wife but low batteries cut their time short.
As they drove closer they talked about the impending approach of Walpurgisnacht. Meduka hoped there would be a magical girl strong enough to bring change and avert disaster. However, Homura, recalling the all too familiar past experience, was understandably worried yet still hoped this time could be different.
As that was happening Iroha ran into Kyouko. As usual Kyouko tried to act like a lone wolf and said she followed her own path but seeing how determined Iroha was to get to the Magius heads on her own Kyouko once again couldn’t leave her alone and lent a hand.
Iroha was also remembered that becoming strong didn’t mean not relying on anyone. Her sync weapon with Kyouko was rad. She tried to trick the Wings of Magius into opening the front gate for Yachiyo and Team Meduka but the lieutenant wasn’t easily fooled. Thanks to Kyouko she just blasted it.
IroYachi/YachiRoha are so precious this simple hug made my heart flutter. So the leaders of Team Iroha and most of Team Meduka were ready to storm the castle but the Magius had a surprise for them. Two brainwashed comrades.
Pumped for next time.
