Quake is a super loli woman, fortunately I want to
ALso, Queens chapter 4
Someone need to edit the image of SW sweating to "She does it for lewd and headpats" instead of "free".
BTW, you guys BTFO, Lady Puck did cry, she is a very caring person, albeit somewhat twisted.
Depends on what her endgame really is but I think she's most likely gonna be an anti-hero since if Puck and Osk are down, she still has to deal with Caspar who has both Lazuline I and Pythie who probably has some ulterior motives.
Right now she needed to go full mindcontrol to accomplish her goal of world peace. Once world peace is secured (all MG refraining from killing each other), she has no intention on being overly intrusive or robbing them of free-will. They will still be different people with different pursuits in life. Every country literally has laws to prevent murders and crimes, are you saying that is wrong because it prevents "free will" too?
Puck wanted to make real friends, not just a bunch of personality-less dolls. It's dumb to forget how she actually is.
people under PP are like a hive mind all wanting to serve her, if anyone wants to do anything against the grain, they are unable to. PP takes away the freedom of choice from people who want to change shit. Its a false peace
Read my post. I said right now PP needs to crank up her magic to the max because she needed to protect the device. After the device is activated, PP will return her magic to how it used to be for years (lowest setting, only there to make people non-aggressive, but still free to make decisions).
PP's goal isn't to make the world serve her like mindless puppet. Her goal is make people stop killing each other while still being themselves, and that can be achieved with the lowest setting of her magic. The whole point with the device is only to increase the range of her magic, not its intensity.
Still following Deluge just to probably to make sure that she still completely follows through with her plan.
Because as of right now the faction that's benefitting the most is Caspar. With Deluge being the one wanting to take down Osk and Puck, Caspar won't need to lose their forces and keep rising in number since Lazuline I seems to be recruiting MG's to the faction. So all BBC,who is Lazuline III, needs to do is just make sure her plan goes through so she does the job that Caspar wanted.
>She wanted to be supportive to Deluge. She’d tried so hard to be that person to her
>Blue Bell can’t just abandon Deluge
>Blue Bell knows that Deluge isn’t a stupid person. She’s well-adjusted and smart. Blue Bell wanted that Deluge back.
Oh look, it's another episode of I-want-Deluge's-cock—
>As she walked around, a hand grabbed onto her.
>The hand’s grip was hard. Blue Bell couldn’t react fast enough, another hand gripped her neck, as it pulled her towards a tent.
>Blue Bell’s body was thrown to the ground, and Blue Bell wanted to scream, but a hand clasped her mouth shut. Her screams were muffled.
>Before she knew it, the hands began to feed her something.
>Forced into her mouth.
>More and more of them were being force-fed to Blue Bell.
>She tried to spit them out, but the hand kept forcing them down her throat.
...This wording in this entire scene was intentional, right?
>Now it seems Blue Bell’s the one that’s being stressed out. She wanted to eat the candies herself, calm herself down.
That must have been a nice release for BBC, right? Good that she gets to enjoy the big blue candy herself.
What are magical girls that would lose in a straight up 1v1 fight against a
>2 of spades
>3 of spades
>4 of spades
>5 of spades
>6 of spades
>7 of spades
>8 of spades
>9 of spades
>10 of spades
>Jack of spades
>Queen of spades
>King of spades
>Ace of spades
Also, what is the highest spade your favorite MG would manage to win against?
2 of Spade is stronger than your average MG, meaning she's a 3/5 in physicals. Ace of Spade is stronger than Marika.
My fav? Pfle and CQ can't into a fist fight while Deluge did kill the Ace after overdosing on Luxury Mode.
Daisy could have been Nokko-chan's personal Quake. They're both dirt poor but nice people.
As she walked around, a hand grabbed onto her.
The hand’s grip was hard. Blue Bell couldn’t react fast enough, another hand gripped her neck, as it pulled her towards a tent.
Blue Bell’s body was thrown to the ground, and Blue Bell wanted to scream, but a something plugged her mouth shut. Her screams were muffled.
Before she knew it, she is being fed by something hot.
Forced into her mouth. Upon contact with her tongue, it became wet instantly in her mouth. Harder and harder it was being force-fed to Blue Bell.
Blue Bell realized what it was. It was Deluge's penis. She tried to spit it out, but Deluge kept forcing it down her throat.
It was laid out perfectly.
Inori Minase: Please go easy on her for what she did. She's only 7 years old, you know.
Marika beat the Ace of Spades and King of Clubs after killing dozens of Shufflin with Solar Cannon.
I think Lapis would only be beaten by Ace of Spades, while Masked Wonder could probably take the King of Spades.

Poor CQ. She's like, the most level headed character in the series but still really fun, her teasing Uluru was great.
>Blue Bell remembered that she wasn’t Blue Bell.
Oh shit, I knew this was coming, but the rapey imagery of the scene came out of nowhere. I also didn't realize she'd been mindwiped herself, I thought she was just hiding it.
Also Dark QT being a dork was cute.
Are you all right? You know that Hana can beat Pythie and Tot Pop, both of whom are 4/4 physicals, at once in a straight fight right? While LP is an embarrassment who couldn't even scratch Cranberry?
>I also didn't realize she'd been mindwiped herself, I thought she was just hiding it.
Are you setious? Did you ignore the ladt chapter of ACES where we learned BBC has a hazy memory, and how she's genuinely devoted to Deluge?
>Even though the koala plushie is just that. A plushie. Puk Puck imagined that it was someone warmly embracing her, being hugged, being comforted, having someone tell her that everything’s going to be okay.
I feel like the spirit of Quake possessed that koala.
Man, if only Quake was here. Puk Puck would be comforted so hard.
>How’d it get this far? Blue Bell didn’t really remember. Most of it was just a haze.
>She couldn’t even remember how she became a Magical Girl in the first place.
ACES chapter 5.
I don't think she knew Lapis II personally. Lapis I never considered the possibility of her successor getting killed after all. She simply collects the memories of people who knew her and respects it.
Taste the rainbow is old and busted, we taste the balls now.
There isn't enough pervert level cap to stop our girl from reaching new highs.
Memories of the Blue MG was set 2 years after Restart. Meaning it's more or less around JOKERS time.
It's obvious that Lapis I only just found BBC, otherwise she would have made her wipe the memory of that human girl long time ago instead of waiting for 2 years. Lapis I said she did it to prevent LoM from knowing about her after all. So Lapis II and BBC never met.
We all forgot how hairfag is actually stacked in physicals.
So Deluge is definitely being set up to be an anti-hero at this point, still I wonder what is going to happen to Dark Cutie, she doesn't really seem to have any ties or allegiance to anyone, so by the end of this I can see her with Pfle, Deluge, Osk, or SW
My wives Swim2 ad Nokko-chan are so cute.
QUEENS is shaping up to be a MG Tower Defense campaign. I like this direction
My elf wives Cranberry and Melville are so cute.
yeah and her only 3 is in confidence, and that doesn't seem to stop her at all.
Her only weakness is believing her hair to be shitty.
I want more villains like that, who aren't completely arrogant, and are actually humble in some respects.
You know, Pythie has 5/5 intelligence and ambition like Pfle, but not the 5/5 confidence. I think this is reflected in the fact that her keikaku are usually of smaller scope, but tend to achieve their aims more often than not, and they don't usually spiral out of control the way Pfle's keikaku do.
Pfle's problem is that her plans are often so large in scope, she forgets about the little things and people she screws over that can mess with her, like the whole Limited fiasco and Deluge in general.
But that's wrong. Pythie's keikaku failed in reproducing Clamberry's tests, in SWRP, several times in Limited, and she even failed securing Cherry. Whereas Pfle has had a flawless victory so far with her selection test, Limited, and Jokers. Pfle didn't plan anything regarding the Sage conflicts, so you can't say her keikaku failed there.
>Would her promises override the friendship rape?
1. Promise someone to kill Puk Puck
2. Get in contact into Puk Puck
3. Either kill her and feels guilt or tell Puk Puck about the promise and other MS under PP stop her.
Yes. Wedin's power is a geas that operates on a completely different layer from friendship. You must fulfil the geas whether or not you love Puk.
Pfle herself is smart, but she's not as smart as Pythie.
Pythie wasn't looking to replicate Cranberry's tests; she was looking for an idealistic and strong MG. Her objective in Limited was to survive, and not only did she do so, she came out with Pukin's rapier. She did manage to rescue Cherry, but she let Cherry return to see if she was strong enough to be an ideal MG candidate and to ensure SW's escape.
She has basically come out on top throughout all the books; SW is an ideal MG and she has protected SW throughout the books.
Pfle, on the other hand, had all her plans spin out of control and she's essentially spinning plates to keep everything from crashing down. She failed to protect Mamori, she has little influence on the Sage conflict, and she's being hammered hard by the backlash of her stunt in Limited.
Wedin explicitly counters Pukin.
This isn't to say that Pfle isn't smart, you can tell by how she does things in Restart and with her stunt with Mana that she can totally cover her ass and accomplish all her objectives... if she doesn't reach too far.
In fact that seems to apply to EVERYONE in MGRP, the more ambitious you are, the harder the story fucks you over.
If you're going to be reaching like that then sure. I wonder if you realize no villain can win in a story. Every single one is going to have the loose ends kill them. Swim got killed because she made Ripple mad. Cranberry got killed because she got careless. Pfle is gonna get killed because she made Deluge mad. Pythie is gonna end up the same. Thus your whole argument is a moot point.
Now, when you're interested in an actually useful assessment, you'll see that Pfle is the champion so far. When she bothered making a plan, she achieved all of her objectives. Pythie on the other hand suffered many failures in conjunction of some wins. That's why she's more humble than Pfle.
That said, Pfle isn't arrogant. Confidence in a realistic plan =/= arrogance.
I would kill myself if I were her desu.
>Pythie wasn't looking to replicate Cranberry's tests
Go read SWRP again before arguing. She wanted the system but wasn't as skilled as Clamberry. Her tests fail because everyone keeps dying, no survivor at all. Clamberry was a skilled test designer who put a lot of effort into finding a suitable personality and implemented a training period for her test subjects before conducting the test.
>Her objective in Limited was to survive
No, that's only what she was reduced to striving for, because everything else she wanted to do had been thawed. Again, read the fucking book. She even had multiple monologue lamenting her flawed planning.
>She has basically come out on top throughout all the books
Joke's on you. Pfle won every single objectives she set out to achieve, wheras Pythie could only find solace in what she managed to win.
>Pfle, on the other hand, had all her plans spin out of control
Completely wrong. If you're going to conveniently ignore the fact that Pfle had achieved 100% objectives in her keikaku, and claim "vengenful victims come back" as "spiraling out of control" then Inhope you realize Pythie is worse at that AND will meet the same fate as Pfle at the end.
I just finished Restart and I don't understand it.
Did Keek modify her own memories so that she wouldn't be aware of the fact that her master was mentored by Cranberry and so she herself is also Cranberry's "child"? What was her mental breakdown about?
>well, her express plan in Limited was to tie up a loose end so Osk couldn't trace it back to her.
And that's exactly why I said you're reaching,
Here are Pfle's completed list of objectives in B-City:
- Kill Toko and the assassin
- Kill the Aces of different divisions
- Push for a prison reform
And she accomplished all of that.
Here are her objectives in Jokers:
- Create artificial MGs
- Make LoM "accidentally" discover these artificial MGs, thus spread the technology
And she accomplished all of that.
Stop thinking in the meta sense "Pfle still fail at very end." She's a villain, of course there's way she could survive everything. We're talking about keikaku skills here, which means step by step planning per arc, and Pfle is the ONLY person in the series so far with a flawless victory. She set out concrete objective per step, not just a vague "protecting Mamori."
Pythie on the other hand failed in many things she tried to do, as I've already listed. She's not completely defeated yet because her vague goal "creating an ideal MG" is, well, vague.
We all know they'll both die at the end by vengenful victims. So what exactly are you trying to compare here? If you're gonna do a comparison, do it properly. Don't compare a vague objective with the concrete ones per plan.
I'm not even comparing anyone; you said Pfle has had a flawless victory, and I'm pointing out she hasn't.
Her reason for eliminating the assassin and Toko is so Osk won't be able to find out who their employer was. The beginning of Jokers shows Osk did find out. So it wasn't a flawless victory. I'm making no judgments about who the better keikaku master is. I never even mentioned Pythie.
You're giving Pfle too much credit, she never pushed a prison reform or tried to kill anyone but
Toko and her partnerbecause they could use their info to lead the Osk faction to her, which happened anyway, don't make Pfle a villain when she clearly is not one, she's more like an extremist with good intentions and a tunnel vision, and funny enough, you're reacting in the same way the girls of Restart reacted to Pfle's actions, she's playing you like a fiddle.
Keek's mentor is Pythie (you should know who Pythie is is if you read arc 1.5). For some reason, Pythie wiped Keek's memory of her. The later arcs will let you understand more.
No, Osk wasn't sure who did it. They simply made a list of suspects and was trying to confirm. That's exactly why Pfle only wanted her memory wiped, instead of fleeing away. Did you think she would be stupid enough to wipe her own memory if Osk already knew it was her? That would be like throwing down her weapon and run into the enemy's sword.
So no, there's nothing wrong with her keikaku. Limited was simple and successful for what she wanted to do.
>In order to understand what's going on, I need to read more. It's not just shitty writing
Eh, the only assumption you really have to make is that Keek got her memories wiped at some point. It isn't really necessary to know who did it.
The irony is that she was in the exact same situation as the girls she killed.
Yeah, but the very fact they attacked her indicates her keikaku wasn't flawless. If it was, she wouldn't have even been a suspect.
Plus, I'm pretty sure Grim Heart says they knew it was her.
Anyway, I'm not saying her keikaku was bad, I'm saying it wasn't perfect.
>she never pushed a prison reform or tried to kill anyone but Toko and her partner
Holy shit, I can't believe Limited is that hard to understand. You completely missed out what Pfle was trying to do there, just because you saw 1 of the objectives huh.
Explain this: if her objective was only killing Toko and the assassin:
1) Why did Pfle set the assassin up so that she accidentally killed someone while stealing from Osk?
2) Why did Pfle hype up the assassin's danger level in order to get Hana and Mao Pam in the investigation team, even though the assassin was just an average criminal much weaker than some random freelancers. The assassin herself admitted the forces sent to catch her was overkill.
3) Why did Pfle send 7753 in to jam the magical phones?
4) Why did Pfle specifically use a prisoner like Pythie, instead of hiring Dark Cutie to kill the assassin?
So many things that don't add up. If you only think about it for a moment, you'll realize that her plan was much more complicated than just killing the assassin.
Keek was a shitty villain, but there's nothing shitty about the plot threads involving her. Every arc is interconnected so it's natural not everything will be wrapped up and forgotten in the next arc.
because she never learned the saying about too many cooks in the kitchen?
We don't know either way, since she removed her memories of the plan, but you could say that Pfle fucked up by throwing too many powerful things into the barrier.
The forces being overkill doesn't necessarily have to be part of a grander keikaku; she could have just fucked up.
For most of it she wanted to create chaos and she really wanted the power vacuum that Mao's death created. She was planning to use it to greatly improve her own position. I think she didn't directly hire an assassin because that could be tracked back to her.
That said, if anyone starts spouting "Pfle did nothing wrong", I will point out that working with Pythie was a mistake, probably the biggest one she ever made. Pythie is too dangerous and can't be controlled like Pfle wants to.
Oh, that wasn't sarcasm. I was actually happy to know that it's not just shitty writing.
>The irony is that she was in the exact same situation as the girls she killed.
How so? You mean, being brainwashed and then having your memories wiped so that you don't realise you've been brainwashed and as you follow what you believe to be your own will, you're merely following your programming?
I look forward to reading on, thank you.
Did you even read the assassin p's side story? Did you not understand she was set up to accidentally kill someone, instead of a peaceful stealing mission?
Why would Pfle throw many powerful at an assassin that she knew is just a weakling?
Why would she threw LoM officials at the assassin, since if they had captured the assassin then Pfle would surely be thrown in jail? Why mot just hire a bunch of mercenaries instead?
Do you need me to explain the plot of Limited again?
>1) Why did Pfle set the assassin up so that she accidentally killed someone while stealing from Osk?
That was never stated at any place anon, also what Pfle did was leak, and exaggerate, the information about her previous jobs, not that one, heck, for what we all know the stuff about her killing a higher up in that opportunity could be a lie and she just killed a magical girl that was acting as a guard while she was stealing the information.
>2) Why did Pfle hype up the assassin's danger level in order to get Hana and Mao Pam in the investigation team, even though the assassin was just an average criminal much weaker than some random freelancers. The assassin herself admitted the forces sent to catch her was overkill.
So Pfle could be sure the assassin was gonna be killed and also for LoM to have enough motives to deploy the barrier.
>3) Why did Pfle send 7753 in to jam the magical phones?
So the information doesn't go out from the barrier.
>4) Why did Pfle specifically use a prisoner like Pythie, instead of hiring Dark Cutie to kill the assassin?
Simple, she needed someone to move outside and inside the barrier at any time, and Pythie is perfect for that.
Once again, Pfle is playing like a fiddle making you believe a ton of the results of her keikaku were planned when they were, in fact, bonuses she didn't planned, like Mao Pam and Hanna getting killed while getting new allies like Pythie.
>Even though the koala plushie is just that. A plushie. Puk Puck imagined that it was someone warmly embracing her, being hugged, being comforted, having someone tell her that everything’s going to be okay.
PUK PUCK IS CUTE!
Because she wants to be absolutely sure the assassin gets killed?
She probably would have manipulated 7753 in some way in order to ensure the assassin gets killed. Hiring mercenaries creates more connections leading back to her.
I'm not saying your interpretation is wrong, but I'm saying it isn't fact. If and when those memories are accessed, it could be revealed that Pfle's keikaku spiraled out of control, or that it all was a part of it. We don't know.
You've proved to not read the side story of the assassin, nor understand any of Limited. Let me humour you one last time, in chronological order.
1) Pfle hired the assassin to steal Osk's technology.
2) Pfle hired a MG to engage with the assassin in that same mission, resulting in a death. The assassin panic because she wasn't supposed to kill anyone this time.
3) Pfle used that death to hype up the assassin's strength, the goal is to bait the divisions to send their aces to B-City. (If she only wanted the assassin killed, then she wouldn't do this, because LoM would have CAPTURED her instead of killing, and the assassin would have revealed that Pfle was her client)
4) Pfle released Pythie from jail instead of just hiring a strong mercenary like DC. This is because she wanted to prompt LoM to take action in reforming the prison system, as it's too weak as it is.
5) The assassin's group, prisoner group, and LoM officials group are pit against one another. The aim is to kill the assassin and the aces.
6) 7753 helped jamming magical phones so that the LoM officials (aces) cannot contact each other nor outsiders, increasing their chances of failure and death.
It was all part of her planning, nothing accidental here.
And no, she didn't anticipate Pukin, but that's irrelevant to the plan.
Snow White said that they need to play their cards right, they're gonna use Shufflin to inflitrate and assassinate a character aren't they. I'm guessing Glassianne or CQ, one of the backline
Anon, if she only wanted to be absolutely sure the assassin is killed, she would not send the aces of LoM divisions there.
The LoM officials are police. They do not kill. They capture criminals, which Pfle absolutely do not want. If the assassin was captured, the she would reveal Pfle's hiring her.
So why did Pfle hyped up the assassin's strength just to get the aces in there? Remember, even the assassin was bewildered by the excessive forces and the quarantine, it's completely overkill for a criminal of her calibre.
Simple: Pfle wanted the aces dead too. With the assassin and the prisoners present, there's a high chance that at least one of the aces will die.
The reason she wanted them dead is to destabilize the divisions, making it easier for Pfle to proceed with the reforming plan. The destabilization was even stated in Jokers.
You know the sidestory takes place a few months before Limited, right? The job she was on in that sidestory isn't necessarily the same one. It very well could be, but one imagines that the mission would have occurred right before Limited, instead of a few months before.
Except I did and that mission was before she became friends with that girl, Do you really believe it would take for Pfle some months to hype someone enough for a mission to capture/kill with the addition of a barrier? Because I don't think so, with that much time she could used someone else, like Pythie, to kill the assassin quick enough, because if your assumption is true then the whole of Pfle's plan falls apart because Toko and the assassin have enough time to leak their info to the Osk Faction and run away, it just doesn't make sense.
For LoM maybe, but not for Pfle, someone who works in that kind of division, and let's not forget how she could contact Toko any time so it would have been a piece of cake for Pfle to lure Toko to some place where a LoM investigator would have been doing her job.
>Desert Warfare Shufflin
How many shufflin could their be? What are their gimmicks like? Did they give up on Jokers after Shufflin I?
Pfle is from HR, not Examination. Why would she draw suspicion to herself by revealing the assassin's location? Her goal was to make the entire process look natural and the case looks like it has nothing to do with her. And that means letting LoM investigating it at a normal pace.
Are you saying Pfle would let someone who knows critical information about her going around here and there for months without check? It's hard to believe that, also she could easily create a situation where Toko's discovered by a "coincidence", I find a hard time believing Pfle could endanger herself and SG that much anyway.
as many kinds as the rainbow!
If Osk really wanted to be successful, they'd market the Shufflin. They already have branding with that dance video; they just got to them out to the buyers.
Imagine being able to buy your own custom Shufflin.
Yes, I'm saying that. You still haven't shown me any compelling reasons why that couldn't have been the Osk's technology stealing case. And you have no way to explain why the assassin felt she was set up.
If the Examination Division sent SW instead of Hana in limited how troubled pfle would be? I'd imagine She would immediately find out 7753 and Fal would know the superior name after a search.
I wonder if SW was made busy just before the case.
7753 has no idea what's going on, so SW reading her mind won't solve anything much. The magical phones are still jammed and the barrier is still in place, so everyone is still trapped in the city with the assassin and the prisoners attacking them.
Bloodbath will still happen. SW won't be much against Pukin either because Pukin can control her own mind to fight without thinking, rendering SW useless.
I could say the same to you, everything is under the assumption that Pfle somehow knew a Magical Girl that is a direct counter to the assassin, someone she doesn't know because she only contacted Toko, and put her there to be killed by the assassin, if I was going to hire an assassin to kill someone, and I already know that assassin's story of hits, I wouldn't put someone that's gonna give her trouble but someone that's gonna be easy for her to kill or maybe someone relatively important, and let's not forget how Pfle did all that to kill Toko and her partner AFTER the deed, remember that all this began because after the job Toko and her partner saw what they stole, What's the point of contracting someone if you don't trust in them? If Pfle somehow knew someone is gonna look at the info they're gonna steal then might as well contract someone else, and leaking the info would have been a pretty stupid move from Toko's part since that would not only destroy Pfle's career but hers too.
The divisions send their aces in order to get fame. Examination won't send SW because she's their unofficial member. Meaning even if SW complete the mission, Examination still wouldn't get the credit, rendering it pointless.
>“Ah… Alright. Well, anyway, that girl’s magic seemed to immediately counter mine. Was it an accident or was it planned?” asked Rain Pou.
>“When I went in here as a Magical Girl, I met her immediately and we went on the wrong terms. Considering her powerset, I don’t know if someone hired her or not. Was this a setup?”
>"I could have a word with our boss! I’ll ask later on!”
Whatever you say m8.
When exactly did SW become a tactical genius? I can understand her being great at fighting for herself, but managing a whole squad is something else entirely, and it's not something she has done before.
That only rises more questions, Why would you get someone to mess up with someone else you already hired? Doesn't it make more sense to get the second person after the first person fucked with you?
Mana already knew 7753 was contacting with her boss because Hana heard the conversation. There's actually nothing 7753 hide that could have saved everyone.
Fal won't be able to connect to the database because the phones are jammed. If it was possible, they would have used it to find out if the nuking plan was real, since that shit must be recorded in the database.
And knowing Pfle is 7753ms boss doesn't help. Mana knew it right after Limited, remember? Yet she has no idea how Pfle has anything to do with the incident, despite all her suspicion.
I had explained that many times in this thread.
Pfle's goal was to make the assassin killed someone, in order to make LoM goes after her with their aces.
If it was just a peaceful stealing mission, Pfle would have easily silenced her by sending mercenary to kill her. LoM will never know the assassin even exist, because Osk will NOT report that their technology was stolen. They don't want anyone to know it exist.
Pfle set everything up to kill the aces. while simultaneously kill the assassin. Are we clear?
As far as the Magical Girls around her have reported, the situation doesn’t sound very good for Puk Puck right now.
Everyone is against the Puck Faction. Everyone is attempting to oppose her. Not only that, but Puk Puck also lost people too.
All of these things made Puk Puck sad. She was about to cry, but she didn’t want her friends to see her in that kind of state.
She retreated to her room, she needed something soft to pour everything towards.
A large koala plushie. Puk Puck hugged the plushie, and began to cry softly into it. Not loudly enough that anyone outside could hear, but she had to let the sadness all out.
Being turned against by the whole world, and losing your friends at the same time, those were things that would make anyone sad.
As a Sage, Puk Puck must be an example to her friends, and put on a cheerful and happy expression all around.
She can’t be judged by others as a crybaby, even though Puk Puck herself knew that she wasn’t always perfect herself.
Flaws and weaknesses can make a dent in friendship, and if Puk Puck couldn’t make anymore friends, then it’s not worth it.
Even though the koala plushie is just that. A plushie. Puk Puck imagined that it was someone warmly embracing her, being hugged, being comforted, having someone tell her that everything’s going to be okay.
Puck is so cute and nice. I am rooting for her.
Intelligence 4/5, and she had shown her tactical experience in JOKERS. She knew how to organize a group.
I know that doesn't always translate to commanding an army, but you can't say she's inexperienced.
When people argue about whether or not Pfle purposefully wanted the Limited girls dead, and set it up that way, which side are the Pflefags?
The people who want her to be more of a straight up villain yet also a more competent keikaku master, or the people who want her to be more well-meaning, but also more incompetent?
SW isn't great at fighting at all which is why she is used to planning and managing her limitations. In order to beat stronger MGs she had to adapt to exploit weaknesses. She only fights in situations where she has a good chance of winning and running away when she needs to. She takes into consideration everything from powers to the surrounding environment and creates a reasonable battle plan. Then she can just apply that to others.
I was about to point out that she is a murderer herself, but is she really? I mean she doing the dead herself, not indirectly by putting people in death games? She tried to murder Ripple but failed. After that she got more hands off, working behind the scenes and letting other people do her dirty work.
If you hire an assassin to kill someone, are you a murderer?
Your criteria are stupid. Murderer is defined as someone who organize a murder. It doesn't mean it has to be the one directly kill someone. If you plan out a death traps or death games, you already meant to kill, and thus that make you a murderer. This is the legal definition too, mind you.
Pythie is a murderer, no matter how you want to twist the concept.
Pretty much, Puk Puck can give an order and the MGs will follow it to the T until they die. Maybe if there is a smart MG that sees a golden opportunity they will take it but it isn't likely.
Pfle fag here. I love her just the way she is.
>Pythie is a murderer, no matter how you want to twist the concept.
Of course she is, no way around that.
>Your criteria are stupid.
I was just wondering if she every killed someone herself. I have wondered about stupider things and I'm sure so have you.
My brethen of African descent.
Now, if only a certain nightingale would share our sentiments.
It's sort of odd how SG has Pfle's bird emblem on her hat. I think it's the only example of magical girls sharing common motifs that I've seen outside of groups of Man-Made Magical Girls. Shadow Gale and Pfle really are meant for eachother, huh?
You better stay the hell away from my wife anon!
I used to think her tail is a raccoon tail, but I guess it's a nightingale afterall. There were black bird feathers floating around her sprite in ACES's character list.
I'm really glad we're starting to get art of the later arcs.
I was talking about whether Pflefags want her character to be more or less evil.
Wanting to kill an assassin you hired yourself is pretty ruthless, but the assassin is a criminal in her own right, so it isn't the evillest a person could be.
Purposefully setting up a plan where innocent people get killed because they're in your way is pretty evil.
I was wondering if its people who are anti-Pfle who are arguing she intentionally killed them. Or if its pro-Pfle.
How wasn't that a result of corruption? LOM showed its unwillingness to reform its way of operation, leading to severe loopholes that easily got exploited by criminals like Pythie and Cranberry. LOM also has severe problem with infighting and a nonexistent transparancy. They hide scandals and try to silence everyone with brubery.
A better goverment who is more effective in management was what Pfle is after. LOM corrupted officials refused to change the system because they don't want to give up their seats. And so Pfle had to take them down.
Ripple and Pythie are two different people who share the same assessment of LOM with Pfle, and they want a reform too.
Doesn't Top Speed know better that kissing makes babies? Why is she still doing such lewd things?
As far as I understand, it is to prevent monopolization on army.
LoM currently has exclusive capability to make natural MGs. That means if a corrupted high-ranking member wanted to make her own army, she could bribe the recruiment officers to bring new MGs to her first and employ them. If the army is large enough, nobody would dare to oppose her and so her seat is secured. She'll have big influence in laws making too, which translates to money.
The Osk faction already intended to monopolize the manmade MG technology in order to create their own army. If they grew large enough, they'll destroy Puck and Caspar and gain full control over LoM.
So Pfle prevented both scenarios by publicizing the technology. It's like trying to grant everyone gun rights instead of letting the government or a magnate monopolizing it.
>full control over LoM
Not that anon but the sages does not rule, control or run LoM. They are more like small religious groups who are doing their own thing without being involved most thing.
Why do you think they hide their technology? To the point GH had tried to silence everyone in Jokers?
Why wouldn't they want to control LoM when that will give them power to do whatever they want, without fearing some division officials will come to arrest them? Not to mention the money they can make by being in full control of everything.
The 3 Sages aren't just fighting each other for shit and giggles. They do business to earn money. They negotiate to gain influence. They escape the law to avoid being put in jail. One of them is currently trying to mindcontrol the whole LoM right now. What make you think they just want to be hermits if they have a huge army?
>“Absolutely. If they can’t, we’ve provided some of them with Shufflins of our own. Since we have Shufflin 2, they’ve got things such as the Prototype Shufflin, Desert Warfare Shufflin, and we’ve thrown in Training Shufflins too.”
Did I miss something?
Are Shufflin man-made MS?
I've been wondering. Land of Magic technology is typically based off of pre-existing magical girls, right? What magical girl are Shufflins derived from? What is the proto-Shufflin like?
Snow White being all excited when she talked was pretty unnerving in this chapter
how do you think
Fal will react to seeing Snow
Tactically CQ is superior
SW understands what she has to do in a fight to survive, but CQ knows how to manage large numbers of troops
iirc all of SW's possessions were taken away before she got Puk'd
That's why Uluru has him
Uluru was going to get SW's stuff for her
>“Of course Lady Lethe, this is all thanks to your work as leader, after all.”
>“Flattery will get you nowhere.”
Lethe a shit A SHIT
CQ's gotta work on her ass-kissing technique. I hope she makes it but my prediction for her death is she's gonna get assassinated by a Puk'd Shufflin, thats the only way I can see the backline girls like Glassianne and CQ dying
I could see her getting killed by one of her own soldiers
but on that note
Shufflin's have emotion but not really all that much
In Jokers they were a hivemind
Do Shufflin 2s just have more free will than the originals?
It's not like any of them can think enough to want to disobey CQ
if they get Puk'd and CQ is screaming inside their head do you think she could regain control?
CQ Hammer is going to have a hard time getting past the bunkered down MGs now that they have new orders from SW. All SW has to do is defend and buy time while they get the friendship nukes ready. CQ will be pressured to find a weakness, this might end up in her over extending and losing forces to Puk Puck. Although I'm not to worried about CQ handling her troops, it's the other commanders that you have to worry about.
Is anyone else really perplexed as to what on earth happened with Grim Heart and Joker? Like we all suspected they faked their deaths to go undercover, but at this point, I'm beginning to get the suspicion something else happened.
Possibly true Queens spoilers from untranslated chapters:
I've read Puck has an "accident" and I get the feeling its the same type of accident Grim Heart. Which means someone might be collecting sages. And I think its obvious who that somebody is.
It's possible that
Joker killed her
I don't think there was any magic to prevent that from happening
Joker wasn't blocked out by GH's power at least during Jokers
it seems fitting that GH would be killed by a subordinate as well
no proof though
Shufflin IIs are an upgrade of Shufflins in that they trade numbers for better individual capabilities. They're not as smart as the Joker Shufflin, but they're still strong, adaptable, and can think for themselves (but require someone telling them what to do otherwise they'd probably wander off and end up having to break dance on the side of the street to survive).
Basically they're retarded lackeys.
No. Shufflin II (52 cards) capabilities are exactly the same as that of Shufflin I (52 cards+Joker). The only difference is that they don't have the Joker nor the hive mind. They become mentally individuals.
Its just dancing, anon, that's Lady Puck's favorite pastime!
We could have peace between all factions if everyone just learned from Shufflin and Puck about the joy of dancing!
>the year is 20XX
>war is beginning in the Land of Magic
>but this war is fought
Yes. Confidence was what made her successful, unlike losers like Rulah or Quakey.
>I want to see Dark Cutie's busin
Solid black with a spray of stars and velvet ridges of cute animals along the site, with DARK CUTIE printed in the center, subtitled with "Villainy, supporting cast and children's shows. Wayang Kulit a specialty"
I wonder if she would have a picture of her standing in a menacing pose from the old promotional material for the anime. Add in some purple SFX lettering like "ゴゴゴ" around the info.
It was a long time since I was on these threads.
What did I missed?
Did Snow White finally become Pukin 2.0?
At this point I'm waiting for the story to run its course (over however many volumes), Snow White to miraculously survive (again) and come to peace with her inner demons, only for Joker to murder her on her front doorstep.
It would be a punchline that I could volcano to in my pants to.
Same. And to think that I didn't pay any attention to her in ACES. Now she's up there with BBC in my list.
Beautiful. SOme small cute animals along the side would be great to emphasise the cute aspect.
Maybe on the back, along with a line like. "Your light can never outrun the darkness, because it got there first and it was waiting!"
Also, for anyone who's read QUEENS spoilers, does Rippuru show up at all near the end?
Come on Anon, at least put some effort in it.
I actually had a really weird dream last night where I was Pythie.
Remember that character list for Mao Pam's games? Duchess is also a character from Alice in Wonderland, so i think it's almost guaranteed thar she is Lethe, looking how Grim Heart and Shuffling are clear references.
In chapter 1 they give the age range of her human form between "early twenties and late thirties." Also she's best cake.
Is this book worth it.
The other arcs are way better than the first one, the world-building in this series is pretty great and there are expanded materials too for characters that didn't have enough screentime so almost nobody gets left out.
There is always a new cast of characters in each arc. All of which blows the Unmarked cast out of the water.
Pic related are the cast for the second arc
and my favourite one
Restart, Limited, Jokers, and Aces all have new casts, though there are a couple of characters that reoccur over the series. Queens has mostly the same cast as aces, only introducing one new character, but it's effectively because ACES was only there to lead into it. If we ever get a fifth season of anime, ACES and QUEENS might be combined.
I'm fine with that. What really puts me off Light Novels (and by extension modern anime since so many adaptations are made nowadays) is how they just have this shitty laziness when it comes to actually resolving plots and just feel like some sort of glorified fanfiction that drags on for all goddamn eternity.
That was actually what really got me into the series in the first place, because I was expecting it to be one of those "NAH SHE WAS JUST REALLY INJURED" type of stories where the stakes are kept as low as possible, but right from the get go when
La Pucelle gets killed so brutallyI was blown the fuck away by how good the story was at betraying my expectations, a trend that continued down to the end when Cranberry gets offed outta fucking nowhereand my jaw is still hanging low.
Real shame the show didn't blow up in popularity, certainly deserved it.
It's retarded indeed, but sadly, most people are retarded so it's not that surprising such comparison would be brought up.
It can't be helped, it's the "logical" first thing to do, and to be fair, even on it's own, Unmarked is quite unpolished so even withou the whole hurr madoka ripoff it shouldn't be surprising if people get turned off from the overall premise.
As much as I like the series it didn't really deserve it. The biggest flaws were how badly the anime portraited snow white and the fucking dumb deathflags and the godawfull flashbacks. It could have been much better than how it was.
IF we ever get another season I hope we get a better director
People in general are stupid, you can't imagine how many people have called it such just because Snow White has pink hair. It isn't even suppose to be pink, in the novels it's platinum blonde.
I think we should change What's her name to She does it for free.
When CQ calls Uluru an idiot, she wasn't doing it just to mess with her. She was doing it to confirm whether or not she was the same person she'd seen seen lie to the shufflins. Because Uluru reacted, CQ knew it was her.
CQ must've also been pissed that her Shufflins got taken down by her though. She could've just ask her if she was the one but she just called her an idiot to see if she really was the one for the laughs.
>turtle and hamster
Topkekemei is pulling her weight more than I'd expected her to now as I go through Limited, it's nice
>Wedin is called weak, slow and heavy repeatedly, by Mei even
Poor, poor Wedin
Also Mana a cutie
That was so cheap, but holy shit what a chuckle.
Dude, to be honest I just really liked most of the characters, for the simple reason that they go against a trend that I've noticed since I've gotten into anime all these years ago: writers often hate real people and anything that resembles actual japanese citizens, to the point where resorting to archetypes has become almost ingrained into anime culture itself; I guess thanks to the 18+ barrier, some VNs still managed to retain a sort of sense of characterization that goes a bit further beyond the usual so I've mostly stuck to those as the years went by.
In IkuKaku it's undeniable that some characters end up dying a bit too quickly and before you can make any serious attachments to them, but in my opinion that ended up working positively for the show, because none of them were neglected too bad, and so the shock of having them die happened WHILE you were forming that kind of bond, which made it very upsetting especially when paired with the escalation of the conflict in general.
I think it's safe to say that it was rare for a character death NOT to phase me, I guess I just really got into it. Swim-Swim was very entertaining and the way she was so unhinged to the point even Fav calls her bad news with a few screws loose definitely added a dose of excitement to the whole thing.
That said, when Top Speed died it sucked real fucking hard, that shit was just not fair.
Which makes it funnier since Dark QT looks like a cat.
Is Dark QT appearing with her hair down now? She did unbundle her hair from the cat ears from the fight with SW and she doesn't seem to have detransformed and transform back to fix her appearance.
Would you say
SwimSwim did nothing wrong?
I don't think they would kill of her and Glassianne, and her dynamic with Deluge is pretty fun, so I think she has a higher chance to live than Glassianne, then again she could also die too, you never know
There's no way BBC is gonna fuck up Deluge since if she did regain her past memories, she would still have her new memories of taking care of Deluge. At best she'd give her a bunch of new healing pills and probably remove Deluge's memories of BBC to make her forget about herself since BBC is most likely gonna leave and she doesn't want Deluge to worry too much.
that doesn't sound like it would give Endo enough of a suffering boner, he'll probably want to break Deluge even further, though she'll probably take it better this time around than the first time
YOU WERE JUST LIKE ME
TRYING TO MAKE HISTORY
“…Deluge is an Avenger, right? Is she a villain… or a hero? What is she capable of to seek vengeance on those who wronged her?”
What is the answer to Dark QT's question? I'd say anti-hero most likely
literally completely different characters and experiences, it'd be a disservice to them both to compare them like that. Then again you're that fag that posts this every thread so whatever
That's one of the reasons I love this novel series so much.
The characters while still being "anime" actually feel like actual people with personalities, emotions, motivations, worries, etc. They aren't just cookie-cutter archetypes just to fill in the quota even if some of them look like it at first glance.
You'll enjoy the later novels considering how much the writing becomes as the series goes on, furthermore, I recommend reading the Unmarked (the first novel) as it goes over things glossed over by the anime, mostly the thoughts of certain characters, but specially and most of all SW and Ripple to a certain extend.
