Let's discuss about Pythie.
We always talk about how fucking Pfle but whayy about Pythie.
I think she is a complex character, she does wrong but does good as well. Her ultimate goal is good and she doesn't projects her on top of the end goal because she willingly takes the role of villain and has self awareness that her actions will come to bite her in the future.
But that's worth the price for the sake of changing LoM.
Her greatest work: Snow White.
However I think she also has low steem because she never tried to become her own ideal.
From the last thread:
In a weird way Pythie's total lack of a moral compass and her downright diabolical cruelty actually make her a more likable villain. It's harder to hate someone who's honest with themselves.
Pfle is just an insanely self-centered bitch with a god complex. She's so full of shit. I just want her to die at this point.
I like SG but the only justice at this point will be for Pfle to watch SG die and realize in that moment how her actions were completely futile.
I'm sure she expects it anon.
However I don't see the girls going to kill her.
I expect however Snow White to convert her to her side and Pythie doing a last attempt of redemption that costs her life trying to be her own ideal magical girl.
no fucking way is Pythie getting any redemption, her whole point is she doesn't actually give a shit about SW at all, if she ever finds someone she thinks is better she'll dump her like hot trash, she's a self-serving maniac who doesn't really care about other people at all, she's just playing with them like chess pieces, completely detached emotionally, she can respect certain things about people but when push comes to shove she looks out for #1 or at least her goals over all else, unlike Pfle she has absolutely no weaknesses she doesn't give a fuck
The act of killing would further prove to Pythie that whoever kills her isn't fit to be a MG.
However if they acted like one and pushed their grudges aside to defeat her without killing her it would break Pythie's mindset that not anyone can be an ideal MG.
Shes my favorite girl, every time she comes appears I get hyped, a very lovable schemer pervert and unlike
Pfleshe is true to her own selfish obssesion and doesnt try to paint herself in a good light. She makes me hard, too
Anyone else notice how good of a mentor Pythie actually is? I mean she managed to turn someone as weak as
SWinto an elite fighting machine in a matter of months and even helped Prism Cherryrealize the full extent of her power and use it effectively against Shufflin. She may be a shitty fighter but she is a god tier mentor.
Sorry to use the a /vg/ analogy but she's like a really good support character. She can't DPS very well herself but she gets a TON of assists.
And as well all know, supports are the best leaders in team shooters because they have the clearest view of the action.
The anime is actually pretty darn good.
It is quite faithful and the side materials that were only added up later were shown in chronological order.
LNfags wouldn't know about Swim Swim meeting with Nemurin or Top Speed until like 1-2years later after the 1st book. I believe this actually gave us some sort of insight into Swim Swim. She is not just a mass murderer doing it for fun.
>goes into a thread of an anime where people are discussing the characters and plot nonstop
>HURR THE ANIME IS SHITE AMIRITE?
>I DON'T LIKE ANIME LIKE THIS SO GIVE ME REASONS WHY I SHOULD WATCH IT
This literally never happens in waifushit threads. I'll never get the autism behind people wanting to sit in a thread to talk about how much they hate an anime. Jesus Christ, go fuck yourself.
Honestly I picked up this show expecting to laugh at how edgy it would be. Now I have the LNs on my phone and am gonna get drunk and marathon the series some point after seeing ep 12.
Why was Nana so retarded?
Was burning cash and trusting strangers her hobby or something?
She has a damsel in distress fetish and Weiss let her be retarded because she was a doormat
Makes me wonder what would happen if Weiss never became a MG and Nana started lusting after La Pucelle's Pucelles instead
At least she didn't just straight up give her alter-ego her own name like Akane. Plus at the time she was playing a social game, the fact that the username got carried over to her actual MG form was probably not accounted for.
“Sakura… whatever happens, you’ll be on our side, right?”
Nami didn’t look angry.
Instead, she looked like she was pleading.
This was a call for help. A friend asking another friend to stand by her. Sakura had never thought that she’d be depended on like this.
She wanted her whole life, for someone to appreciate her and believe that she’s more than just an average girl.
Now she’s found a close friend, and family who appreciates her.
The Land of Magic… or the Pure Elements…
Sakura made her decision.
“I’ll always stand by your side, Nami. No matter what happens.”
they did a really good job of showcasing the relationship between the Pure Elements, they felt like a really close knit group, helps you understand why
Deluge went full Punisher
Episode 5 today.
WATCH YOUR YOURSELVES
I think the OP and ED are growing on me, I thought they were lame at first, they are still not amazing but they are okay.
So, Nana and Winterprison are just very good friends, right?
Also Top Speed is
I think Cranberry has my favorite design of them all, I specially like her stockings. Her soft voice is wonderful and soothing. I didn't expect her to be a battle junkie though. Thinking about it this is the first actual fight so far, I can't really count LaPu vs Ruler's Team as a real fight.
And I'm not sure what to truly make of Nana. She's either super dumb, hopelessly naive or actually just a extreme goody-two-shoes. There's something wrong with her considering she wants to be protected by her prince and put her hopes on Conman Doraemon just like that just to keep that fantasy of hers going on.
Either way, RIP La Pucelle. You were too good for this world.
>So, Nana and Winterprison are just very good friends, right?
>So, Nana and Winterprison are just very good friends, right?
Of course, their duet is even called purest. They can't be in an illicit relationship with a song like that.
>She's either super dumb, hopelessly naive or actually just a extreme goody-two-shoes
Is yes an option?
And was it just me or they are weak as fuck? Cranberry pushed their shit in even with Mana buffing Winter. She was not even serious. What a bunch of jobbers.
God fucking dammit all. I'm gonna lose it when she dies and Ripple figures it out too.
How much yes is that yes?
>you were too good for this world
Killing her off was such a waste.
If they'd swapped
Ripple'srole in the story with hers I think we'd be much better off. Not that I have anything against the former but they made a big deal about several aspects of LP's character and I see a lot more room for development there than with the other one.
man, the death flags for
7753are too damn high.
All that stuff about
not being able to see herself with her goggles; her death scene is going to involve her seeing herself. I bet she gets torn in half, and that's how she's able to scan herself. Its going to be terrible.
Both Winterprison and Nana are quite strong actually. Cranberry is just stronger and more motivated.
>How much yes is that yes?
She's doing what she honestly believes is the proper thing for a magical girl but is a fairy naive and quite dumb about it.
I have access to spoilers from Queens, and I can confirm that's similar to what happened.
Boy can't be a mahou shoujo, he needed to be killed ASAP. He is the main thing stopping SW growth, with her being so over protective over her and SW relying on him as a crutch. He needed to die.
>Name literally Top Speed
>No Image of her with a hat that reads TOP SPEED
What are u niggas even doing?
Daisy won her Cranberry test by Daisy beaming all the other MGs didn't she?
some people speculate that Daisy wasn't even one of the children of Cranberry, Keek was just salty that she didn't like her version of the Magical Daisy Season finale so she put her in the game
But it was mentioned that the only one that wasn't supposed to be part of Keek's shit was Lapis, because it was the original Lapis that actually took part in the tests not her.
Yeah, the mother dying isn't a total "game over" for a baby past a certain stage of development, if you're near a hospital equipped with foetal incubators anyway, but 6 months premature is a hard roll. 3 maybe, but 6 is just nah.
Well, some people already have their books and are wondering when to start discussing it it seems, but they don't know when. Since the fanbase isn't huge it could be longer than a day but all it takes is one person to post for things to start coming out. Could be a day, could be a few hours, could be a week.
It's doubtful she was ever a part of
Cranberry's survival gameI mean several characters didn't directly participate in those selection tests and were still put in Keek's game, namely Lapis and Nokko. Based on the side story it was probably just a case of Keek being salty and wanting her dead I mean, she made an enemy that was specifically designed to take her out. That just screams revenge kill to me. I'm more curious on how the fuck Bell passed her test.
It's hard for memes to develop with so little time for them to grow. We are not even done with one chapter when the next one is already up. No time for memes, only for reading and on-topic classy and proper discussion.
Probably, but it seems completely out of character for her to go around killing. My speculation is she played it more politically, used her skill to gather information, form alliances, sell out other girls, and keep herself alive.
Stay mad Slut Slut sympathizer
I think it was already established that she would track down their location, then even if she couldn't take them out herself someone else would manage it.
That is my one hangup about Restart, it seems way out of character for a lot of them to be
killersLike I can see people like Clantail, Leonetta, Cherna, and Akane having no problem doing what needs to be done but Bell, Miyokata, Genopsycho, and Masked Wonder don't strike me as the type that would ever do something like that
I think the reason is because
Cranberry wiped their memories. At the very least, we know that Masked Wonder had her memories erased before getting training under Nemurin to become Justice
Based on my own speculation:
Belle- Used her skills to gather and sell information, worked from the shadows and just avoided dying.
Miyokata- She has a mean streak, most likely befriended some local wildlife and hid away in the forest letting the animals kill whoever came after her
Genopsycho- Literally pull down visor and wait out the fight
Masked Wonder- Probably fought a lot of the girls trying to get them to repent and stop their evil ways and was forced to kill them when there was no other way.
It's actually pretty terrifying to think of how Miyokata could've won. Send poisonous insects to bite them in their sleep. Have their own pets attack them by surprise.
Alternatively, just use your familiar as a scout and hide.
How can a single girl this young do so many wrongs?
>it seems way out of character
Not really. Just look at their personality after mindwipe.
From the top of my head
Pechika - so PSTD that she doesnt fight anymore
Akane - all she care about is the "musician" that killed her whole family
Nyannyan - same with pechika
Honestly, not really at least for the anime. You'd only see her development after this 'arc'. Not sure if they'll be doing anything as far as season 2 and beyond so I'd start reading after the finale of the anime.
Why do you think?
She uses the halberd that killed off Alice as her main weapon.
She literally becomes batman:
The very mention of the Magical Girl Hunter coming to town was enough to get some rogue Magical Girls to surrender.
Snow White would be more than happy to take them in.
Some, however, resisted.
That’s when she would have to get… forceful.
Fal remembered the last time it happened. Snow White had fought hard against one Magical Girl.
She was a strong one, able to endure many of Snow’s attacks, and she gave Snow a lot of trouble.
Fal could only watch, as he was just a Cyber Fairy.
Eventually, bloodied and bruised, Snow got the upper hand. She managed to turn the fight in her favor, but she didn’t stop.
She pushed herself to the limit, angry and enraged, and pummeled the poor girl, even after she was unconscious.
Fal had to step in.
Fal had to remind her of who she was.
Fal had to prevent her from becoming what Clamberry was.
There were days like this, where Snow would be a bit unhinged. That’s why Fal stayed by her side. He was, and always will be, her partner.
He owes her that much.
Outside, Snow White may be a legend, a hero, or even someone to be feared.
But Fal knew that inside that, was a broken girl.
She was the most brutal, especially at her age.
Rest in Pain you sublime savage.
>But Swim killed more
Bitch tactics don't count.
Alice also had gore in her name and didn't give a single fuck.
I think you're all forgetting that magical girls are resistant to most things non-magical. The only deaths that don't come entirely from others abilities off the top of my head are
glass impalement, squished by a building, and asphyxiation.
Unless she can buff the animals they're basically fodder.
That one is an LN fag, arc one Sw isn't anything hateable or lame really for me. It's not every day a girl with those ideals found the strength to keep going after the events.
It's a lot more refreshing than the usual IMO.
Yeah ill never understand people who hate former or current SW, she's not my favorite or anything but she's still in the bottom half of my top 10, anyone who has her below 30 minimum has shit taste
I caught up with the novel to where I've watched from the anime.
You guys were right about Ruler. In the anime it looked like Mary got to her just once just to be an alpha bitch but in the novel I found out that Mary WAS Ruler's teacher and she spent months under her being abused and humiliated and hurt and more. This makes her even more pitiful. She also seemed genuinely fond of Swim Swim which makes the result even more tragic, as Swim Swim also truly loved Ruler but her desire to emulate and become "Ruler" is what made her take the choice to kill Ruler. It's messed up.
Something else I'm appreciating a lot if seeing what's going on on the head of the characters, specially Ripple. She seems like just a generic dark and broody edgelord magical girl in the anime but she's much more interesting here, specially her thoughts about Top Speed who she seems to cherish even if she doesn't wanna admit it.
The novel has tons of small details the anime omits but the anime has also expanded on some other things. The novel goes super fast too. 5 episodes on the anime are 3 chapters here. They both complement each other very well.
Yeah, and the anime does well incorporating the side stories from the episodes volume into it, but they leave out some stuff from the side stories so I suggest you check them out.
Playing with Top Speed
Produced by the Peaky Angels
The Robot and the Nun
Those are the ones the anime adapted but left out some details from
Oh, that explains it. That's my only beef with the novel so far, things go so quickly I have little time to care about the characters and I'd probably wouldn't this much if not for the anime and that I'm doing both at the same time.
Also, Cranberry power is hella good. Manipulation of Soundwaves can ridiculous applications.
>Pukin became a magical girl before the concept of a magical girl existed
>Somehow still got a nip name as a Brit 400 years in the past
Is Shogun Pukin a mistranslation? Or did she change her name at some point? I just wouldn't expect the westaboo author to fuck this up.
But even so she takes out the
Ace Shufflinwithout breaking a sweat after it nearly killed Marika. Are LOM bombs really that OP? If so why doesn't everyone carry them?
Not having more stories with her.
Her name is Pukin, Shogun was just a title she picked up from somewhere because it sounded imposing and yet regal. She's been around a lot, even with spending the majority of the past hundred or so years in magical hyperbolic time prison.
At least that's how I see it. It might also just be that the author used Shogun as a rank rather than a title and TL-kun, for whatever reason, decided against translating it to General or something.
God I can imagine Melville's buttrage that some no name she never met is getting more shipping fanart with Cranberry than her #1 fan
La Pucelle's undies better not disappoint
I hope she's wearing a g string
>goes into detail all the interesting parts of their outfit
>specifically shows Cranberry's panties like she's Ripley.
>Nana actually a slut
I like Cranberry's design, but why the panty shot?

If you get hit by an object hard enough, even magical girls can't survive that shit. I'm pretty sure a magical girl would get hurt from explosives, especially tank shells, mortars, etc.
>Tfw you are an animeonly-fag and have no idea what's going on half the time
I read VNs and manga, but I've never tried out LNs and I'm too lazy to start.
Also it varies from one girl to another.
Peaky Angels for example are frail as shit.
La Pucelle had the strength to stop a car; she has about the same strength as Weiss, who was able to brain Yunael with what was essentially one-inch-punch. I'm not great with physics, but that means you could probably kill them with a gun.
Noticed a mistake. Fixed.
The main plot involves radicalized magical girls in the government of the Land of Magic attempting to cause enough chaos and discord among the departments through various plots to gain more leverage and power in government to ultimately produce what they believe are beneficial and necessary reforms to the bureaucratic government that runs Land of Magic.
I'd definitely give Restart or Snow White Raising Project a shot though. You can read through Restart and SWRP in about a day if you're avid enough.
Completely different Anon here, just finished Arc 2 after seeing SWRP.
Interesting change of scenery, not a bad ride
but I honestly didn't care about the SW subplot going on in Restart. I kinda felt like the girls had more personality, but I used to be an anime-only scrub so LN's are easily able to relay more info. Also, fuck Pythie and what kind of name is Pfle anyways? And who names themself Kek?
Moving on to Arc 3 after finishing the 1/2 side stories next.
A lot of magical girls just get their names given to them on their first transformation, the only ones that really got to choose their names were the ones from the first arc who played the game (and thus their avatar's name became their MG one) and some of the participants in Arc 2, like Nokko-chan (who has a history of constantly requesting that she be allowed to change her name from the one her 4-year-old self chose, and being denied) and @NyanNyan (Whose friends chose it for her, presumably because her origin was another one of Fav's social games turned killing festival). Maybe it's just a side effect of Magical Phones that they now can automatically generate a new Magical Girl's Moniker on the spot, with no room for arguement or bureaucracy.
As for Pfle...
(Copypasta from TL-kun's FAQ)
Going by the Japanese pronunciation, like Souffle, but with a P instead of S. (So, Pou-Flay).
Snow White, Princess Deluge, Shadow Gale, Pfle, Grim Heart, Dark Cutie, Blue Bell Candy, Armor Early, CQ Angel Hammer, Glassianne, Uluru, Mana
Why am I not surprised?
SW is going for fake it until she make it approach, she isn't really powerful like people think she is.
Pythie hit the jackpot because SW is smart and has a very strong resolve. All she needed was a few more nudge and guiding.
I don't think we should downplay SW and credit all to Pythie.
>Performed by: Radical Sisters
>Recorded in: Magical Records
Lyrics as expected from Cranberry.
I think it can be a reference to Magical Daisy survival test.
> The hero of the Land of Flowers, the fighting princess has arrived!
> She’ll cut through the winds with her Daisy Punch! (Hyah!)
> She’ll crush all defense with her Daisy Kick! (Hyup!)
> And best of all, she’ll smite evil with…
> …Her Daiiisyyyy Beaaaaaaam!!! (Pyoooosh!)
How well would Mahou Shoujo from different Universes fare in the MGRP one? Is there anyone that could take on someone like Homu or Nanoha?
Pretty fucking OP, but unlike megucas, MGRPs don't have time limits so they could probably outlive them.
Nanoha would obviously befriend the shit out of everyone though.
Precures have an in-world equivalent in the Cutie Healers, which are a weird mix of Precure with Kamen Rider, considering there's only one actual Cutie per season, with Cutie Blade being the equivalent of Kamen Rider Black, but Precure definitely don't deal in magical girl fighting (not since the Max Heart movie because it made a lot of little girls cry seeing their two heroes beat each other up).
Subaru and her friends are too fast for anyone to catch up to, even Top Speed.
Unless you cheapshot her in the beginning of a battle, you are going to get the shit befriended out of you with a starlight breaker.
I just finished episode 1 having not read the source material. Seems like it could be interesting, so I'm in.
What level of despair am I in for? Does it go full Madoka levels?
Pic related will be your favorite character by the end of it.
It's been a while since I saw the movie, but she summoned some kind of reality marble for that battle iirc.
Homu 's time stop can fuck most girls in MGRP ( except some hax one's like Grim Heart or even Alice)
Nanoha and Precures have impressive firepower and stat's mostly since they are mostly shounen fighting but with magical girls.
MGRP power's are not about shooting big beams of light or anything fancy but rely mostly on how hax they are and how creative they are when using them. So it depends on who gets to get a drop on who first.
Nanoha doesn't unleash that kind of power unless it's absolutely neccessary to do so. The City in that gif was actually a magically made battlefield, over the ocean, made so Nanoha and Fate could settle their conflict with all their strength. There were no casualties other than Fate's hymen.
You have to admit the episode before the end was cool as hell though.
Miyuki forever best girl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lep7qMN5_9I
Yeah, with the caveat in that Midchildian Magic is specifically non-lethal, regardless of the amount of destruction inflicted on the environment, it will not kill.
It's part of the reason why in Force they actually started field testing Magic powered Ballistic weaponry due to a need for something that can counteract anti-magic fields. Up until that point, ballistic weaponry had been banned by the TSAB due to the lethal nature of it.
Karin is a real human being. But the world in Yuki Yuna is terrifying place. Yuki Yuna feels like a mix normal magical girl anime with Warhammer 40k.
>stella no mahou
If Pythie ever saw La Pucelle in person she would need to wear depends to soak up all of that girlcum she'll be spilling out when she sees her hair.
Is there an illustration of La Pucelle without her braids? According to tvtropes her hair nearly reaches the floor.
>intelligence, willpower and ambition.
You don't even really need the first one
A battlemaniac ran the foreign division.
HR department treat new girls as disposable toys.
Examination department hire crazy criminal to do their dirty work.
The higher up nobles don't even treat the girls as human.
Pfle has the right idea, just terrible execution.
Mao Pam is all right.
That's on pfle mostly.
There is no harm if they make it work, they seem like they really tooks a lot of steps to make it work, It also seem very rare.
Now That's not fair, you've only see one of the 'nobles'.
>Twin Dragons Panasu
>She can manipulate the dragon emblem drawn on her hands.
>Jörmungandr - The God Eating Blue Poison Dragon: Panasu's left hand emblem. She can materialize a dragon longer than ten meters.
>Níðhöggr - The Dance of End Black Flying Dragon: Panasu's right hand emblem. She can materialize a fire-blowing dragon.
I bet those names are from Mao Pam.
>La Pucelle will never be Snow White's mouse pad
>Nokko-chan (who has a history of constantly requesting that she be allowed to change her name from the one her 4-year-old self chose, and being denied
>being stuck with the first username you chose for the rest of your life
This is the definition of eternal damnation.
I wonder what would /a/'s MG names be if they were Nokko-chan.
Those oppai pads will be Comiket exclusive, wont they?
With the epsiode coming this Sunday, I have made an improved chart I was pretty confused with last time since people said 13/16 is correct since that would have meant everyone dies so I improved it
I'm assuming if she can auto proc the power on herself, then at the very least Lethe won't be forced to become Puk Puck's friend, not sure on how it would work on others, but if it does that would be a neat interaction
You guy's cant see what I'm seeing RIGHT NOW?
Somebody stop this train. I want off.
I'm calling it.
Grim Heart, Puck Puk, and Lethe are the reincarnation of three sage.
not only that,
since its literally almost all survivors I wanna make sure Mana, Deluge, and SG are ok too, but Pfle's fate would be nice. I don't care about the Aces characters too much yet since we haven't gotten to read it yet
Shadow Gale cares about Pfle the same way a parent cares about their child that's gone astray.
She wants her to pay for what she's done but at the same time I don't think she wants Pfle to actually die. If she did, she would've already killed Pfle herself. Notice she'd rather off herself in order to redeem Pfle rather than kill Pfle herself.
According to the weebs on Baidu
Pithye's sides are in orbit either because
>keikaku went doori
>SW grew a fuck lot so she came hard watching her team up with Deluge
>Top Dogs MGs institutions BTFO, so even if Pfle "won", Pithye won far more
if Mana dies and its Pfle's fault and she still gets no punishment I'll be pissed, but her eventual downfall will be orgasmic, also then 7753 will get priority dibs on Pfle over Deluge in that case
keep thinking that, one day it will be satisfying to see it all come tumbling down, and then she'l get BTFO at the hands of all the people she's done wrong to, Deluge,7753, SG, SW
Jesus, Restart is like 3 times better than the first book. Even if deaths make me want to smash the monitor.
I unironically am happy that Top Speed died. Wherever I go and read about people sad at the death's in this anime, they all list Top Speed as the saddest ahead of Alice etc.
Meanwhile I only really cared about Alice so far.
Happy pregnant people in functioning relationships DESERVE death.
Nothing special I just can't see myself ever being in a happy relationship so I want others to suffer as much as I have/will continue to suffer. Ideally all women would cease to exist and the human race would die.
If there's anything I've learned from this series it's that evil looking MS like
Alice, and Marikatend to be sweet whereas innocuous MS like Swim2, Rain Pou, and Shufflinare total monsters.
This is literally the most discussed series on /a/ now.
It's probably up there but I doubt it's number one, I'll need to see some stats on that
I hope we get spoilers before the episode airs, though hopefully the ones earlier in the thread are true
