Luminous Witches Episode 8: Heart of a Fangirl

Milasha had some obstacles to overcome.

Milasha's bad luck

We joined our heroines at the Fuso Empire, Inori’s homeland. They’re checking out their fortunes. Milasha good great luck while Lady Aira got bad luck. Being her #1 fangirl Milasha eagerly asked to trade fortunes with her. Unfortunately it didn’t take long for the bad luck to kick in. During their flight show Milasha went a bit off course. If it weren’t for Ellie mimicking her movement it would’ve looked off. Frustrated her #1 raivaru had to fix her mistake she went to apologize to Lady Aira who said “Don’t worry. It wasn’t anything that couldn’t be fixed. Besides this wasn’t your first mistake.” That last part hit her hard.

Milasha competes with EllieOur heroines visited Inori’s family shrine where they were welcomed by grandma who was in a bit of a pickle. The girl who’s supposed to help clean the shrine couldn’t make it that day. Major Grace volunteered the Luminous Witches to help out while she had “important business” to attend to. Milasha took the chance to challenge Ellie. The latter had no idea what’s going on but went along with it. Her experience as a military nurse made cooking and cleaning easy while Milasha struggled.

Luminous Witches SwimsuitSuddenly a surprise swimsuit segment! Thank you Luminous Witches.

Mana BikiniNaturally Mana’s the sexiest.

Milasha BikiniEllie BikiniMilasha decided if she couldn’t beat her at cleaning then surely in a race. It looked like she’d succeed but alas she slipped near the finish and fell into the ocean. Luckily she got a non-deadly jellyfish sting at worst.

Milasha and Aira singAfterward we learned some cool stuff. First up was Milasha’s most treasured possession being a record though because it’s fragile it eventually broke. She still kept a piece of it for luck. There’s one song on the record that helped her overcome her depression from being  chased away from her homeland by the Neuroi. Meanwhile Ellie didn’t get why Milasha kept competing with her (Kinda thought she knew) but the reason she liked teasing her was because it was a way for her to be friendly with someone who shared the pain of losing their home to the Neuroi. Lastly the song that gave Milasha the energy to keep going was of course Lady Aira’s cool song. Inori got her to sing it for grandma and the gang after grandma’s surprised to learn her granddaughter composed songs for them. Upon recognizing the song Lady Aira joined in. She didn’t expect her song to touch anyone or change their life but hearing how it motivated Milasha helped her realize being a musical Witch was the right call. She praised Milasha too. This helped the youngling realize her goal was to become a great singer who equaled or possibly surpassed her idol. The typical dream in anime. Her biggest raivaru was still Ellie though. Our heroines realized they’re a group of girls away from home because of the Neuroi war.

Ginny meets Tomomi NishisugiWe ended the episode with Moffy sensing something at night and Ginny following. It’s a weasel familiar and her Witch partner Tomomi Nishisugi, a fellow Night Witch from Fuso and fan of Ginny’s. Dunno if we’ll see her again.

Good stuff as always. Next time it’s off to Jo’s homeland of Not Murica.

    Honestly didn’t expect swimsuits/beach episode, but they did it since it’s “somewhat Japan” after all and nice that it happened. Still, it’s funny how Milasha gets caught up by the bad luck and her competition with Ellie. Not sure if she will win, but it’s nice to see that Milasha has the fighting spirit.

    Milasha intentionally gets bad luck and ends up unlucky for the most part but in the end Aira gets to sing with her so it’s all good in the end!

    Like the surprise swimsuits this episode!

    Nice to see the girls make a stop in Japan. I’m sure if Yoshika wasn’t on the frontline, she would’ve made an appearance at some point in this ep.

    The surprise swimsuits was very nice to see. Too bad we didn’t get a longer swimsuit sequence though, feels like they just breezed over that detail. Of course Mana looked amazing as we expected. Hopefully the artists will take note of that.

    Milasha had some bad luck this ep but things worked out for her in the end. I liked the scene with her and Aira singing, that was really nice.

    Also cool to meet another Night Witch. She was super cute! I doubt we’ll see her again in the show, but it would be nice if we did.

    Too bad none of the Witches are from Canada. Oh well. Off to America then.

      Another Rambo cameo would have been neat.

      It was brief but lovely. Need more sexy Mana art, especially in the white bikini.

      Milasha was briefly blessed.

      She’s cute.

      I feel your pain dood. If only there were a sexy Canadian Witch.
