「Ani-summary」Mahou Shoujo Site - Episode 4

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 / No Comments
From a continuation of the last episode, Sarina was invited to become a Mahou Shoujo by the site admin, who also confirmed that Aya and Tsuyuno were Mahou Shoujo and their sticks were what resulted in the death of her friend, Erika, as well as the wound on Sarina's neck.

The site admin then hands her her stick, which is a yo-yo and tells her that she could have fun testing her stick's powers. Sarina then does just that, effectively cutting off a crow's head. This shows that her wand is rather precise (cutting) and is rather long-ranged. Having attained this new power, she then feels an even stronger need for revenge.

Around the same time, we see Tsuyuno asking Aya why she was a target for the bullies. This induces the start of a flashback from when Aya first transferred into the school. Due to her inability to communicate well with others, she tend to keep speaking to a minimal and hence failed to thank Sarina for her help, thus inducing Sarina and her friends' wrath.


 After the day when they confronted her about her lack of "thank you", of which Aya still did not manage to say, they started bullying her. This included piling garbage on her shoes, drawing obscenities over her desk and placing insects on her belongings.
Aya knows that this whole situation is her fault and Tsuyuno comforts her then, telling her that she is not as weak and worthless as she thinks she is. Tsuyuno also confirms that she plans to make Aya stronger.
 Aya gets home happily, glad that she finally made a new friend!
A short section is dedicated to Kaname's point of view where it is revealed that he thinks of himself as a god and the rest of the world are just brainless meat bags to him.

 Amongst all these scum, he thinks of his father as one of the worst kinds, the kind that can only ascertain their value through others. As if touching on this point, a scene also comes in where Kaname is beaten up by his father for scoring badly in his examinations.
News of Nijimin retiring from Dog Play also reaches the school the next day, and together with Sarina's discharge, Nijimin also transfers into the school. This leaves Aya in confusion as there are too many changes suddenly on a day when Tsuyuno is also absent from school.  

Aya speaks to Nijimin about Tsuyuno being absent from class as well as her plans to visit Tsuyuno after school. Aya plans to consult her friend about Nijimi's transfer, as she quit the idol group so as to dedicate more time to search for Mikado's murderer, Shioi. However, Nijimin voices her plans to tag along.

Sarina, who happens to overhear their conversation on the roof then confronts Nijimin about her revenge plans and also revealed Shioi's location. Nijimin then leaves without informing Aya, leaving the latter confused but glad to have shaken her off.

Aya then goes to Tsuyuno's apartment alone and was surprised to find the door unlocked. She opens it then to hear a man's voice. Fearing for her friend's safety, she tiptoes into the apartment while keeping a hand on her stick at all times.
She finds her friend collapsed on the floor. Tsuyuno awakens then, telling Aya not to worry as this was simply a side-effect from using her stick too much.
Tsuyuno also refuses to allow Aya to call for an ambulance as she refuses to let anyone find, and take away the man she has imprisoned in her house. To this, we have a scene where we see a man groaning and seemingly in pain, strapped down to a chair as he begs for help.
Tsuyuno reveals that this man broke into her house when she was still a child and murdered her entire family. However, he let her live that one night as she found her quite cute and decided that it would be better for him to come back and find her when she was a little more grown-up.

Tsuyuno was living in fear of that man returning ever since that day, but with her heart set on revenge as well, she looked for other strategies instead of trying to escape. Then, she chances upon the infamous "Mahou Shoujo Site" and acquired powers.
Together with her newfound powers, she no longer feared him. Instead, she stood up against him and simply stayed waiting for him, like a prey turned predator.

「Ani-summary」Mahou Shoujo Site - Episode 3

/ No Comments
There are three main parts to this episode and I'll highlight them separately. The first would be following the main team comprising of only Aya and Tsuyuno at this point. Due to Shioi Rina using too many sticks consecutively and at once, she has suffered severe internal injuries and is now in a coma. Due to this, Aya and Tsuyuno are unable to get any crucial information from her regarding the Tempest.

This is when it daws on Aya that that they could just cooperate with a Mahou Shoujo with the power to wake Shioi up and get the information regarding the Tempest from her. To identify the abilities matching what they needed, they referred to Shioi's  "Murder Book" and found the photo of a girl who looks familiar.

At the exact same time, the TV in the hospital turns on to an idol show and the same girl appears on the screen. She is Anazawa Nijimi, appearing in the idol group Dog's Play as Nijimin.
Nijimin has numerous fans and the main fan which they focused on in this series is this dark-haired man in the image below.
Aya and Tsuyuno managed to infiltrate at this particular meet-and-greet session, and by using their powers, managed to freeze time and teleport Nijimin away from the meet-and-greet location so they had some time to speak. This makes the remaining hall go into a frenzy when Tsuyuno unfreezes time as Nijimin is missing. They start looking for her which cuts the time they had to speak to Nijimin to an incredibly short interval.

Ignoring the fact that it would be definitely more beneficial if they allowed Nijimin to move while still pausing time, they managed to identify each other as Mahou Shoujo and confirm a meeting time that same day.
At that same time, Nijimin meets them at the lobby and appears to be overly excited that she has made new friends. It then strikes Tsuyuno as weird that even with the rumors of Magical Hunter loitering around, Nijimin was so defenceless around them.
This quickly makes sense to Tsuyuno when Nijimin reveals that her stick could help her control other people's minds. This was effectively one of the most powerful skills as she could literally command another person to do anything with just her voice alone. She also uses her powers frequently for trivial things such as getting her fans to do her cleaning and laundry for her.

Noting the dangers of falling on Nijimin's bad side, Tsuyuno quickly steered the conversation to how Nijimin was able to keep her identity as a Mahou Shoujo hidden, especially from other Mahou Shoujo. Nijimin then acknowledges that her stick is actually underwear which makes it easier to hide from other, as compared to bulky items such as Aya's gun. She also dyes her hair and wears colored contacts to prevent the change in her hair and eye color from being known when she uses her powers. She also uses a concealer to conceal the mark on her wrist.
They then moved on to the question if Nijimin knows of any other Mahou Shoujo before meeting them. This was obviously a landmine as she immediately sinks into her other personality.

Nijimin had a fellow Mahou Shoujo named Mikado that was murdered by Shioi Rina. Shioi had a firsthand experience with Nijimin's power and was commanded to rip herself to shreds, and barely managed to escape only due to Mikado's own stick, which helped to cancel out all magic and physical attacks from outside the box.

It isn't revealed in Nijimin's flashback as to how Shioi managed to escape after, but the power of the flashback causes Nijimin to go all insane as she sketches out Shioi's "changed" appearance angrily out on a piece of paper while screaming about her urge to murder Shioi.

The scary part about Nijimin here is how quickly she switches back to her neutral jolly mood after that whole episode. But despite the quick switch, Aya and Tsuyuno understands that it would be impossible to try and enlists Nijimin's help, thus they tried to evade the topic and find a suitable time to leave, which they succeeded in doing.

Back at the hospital, Aya comes out with another plan that consists of stealing Nijimin's wand and simply using it but this was shot down quickly by Tsuyino as she refused to shorten her lifespan for this. This could perhaps also be the same reason as to why she doesn't use the other wands to change Shioi's appearance back to normal as well.
Meanwhile in the same hospital, the second important part in this episode moves. Sarina has her gripes over the scar on her neck and how she was going to make Aya pay for it. Upon leaving her ward, she hears Aya's voice and by following it, she hears about Mahou Shoujo and also finds the ward which Shioi is in.

Upon entering the room she finds the site admin who mentions that Shioi Rina is disqualified. And in her place, the unfortunate soul, Sarina, was invited to become the new Magical Hunter.

The third important part to this plot would be Aya's brother, Kaname. Kaname notices that Aya has changed recently and is extremely unhappy with that as he thinks of Aya as his punching bag and for such an object, friends are not necessary.
Hence he decides to do a little snooping around and realizes that Aya has been on a "Mahou Shoujo Site" due to her computer's history.
Despite being unable to find and enter the said site, it still piques his interest and it's almost certain that he would be snooping around even more in episodes to come!
