Deluge would have been fine had she not gotten with BBC. I mean this is the girl whose idea of helping was disguising the enemy you're murdering as your dead friends screaming to stop. The same one who started getting nervous when Deluge went off the drugs for a while and started acting stable. From her perspective she was nothing but considerate, but for all we know she wasn't exactly playing with a full deck with all the memories taken out. Her idea of care could have been just as manipulated as the rest of her.
I'm in my 30s. Shit, I'm old.
DEER PUSSYnever gets old.
7753 has way more fanart than I thought she would
That's the power of the cake for you.
that and the prisoners image side by side are my screensaver, probably my favorite piece of art from Maruino, though I also like this one
It's most likely a part of the costume and not a part of her compared to Inferno and Quake.
This makes the dark colored PE which were Inferno and Quake have tails that were a part of their body while the lighter colored PE which were Tempest and Deluge don't have an actual tail.
Apparently this is Sera Sera's realy power in F2P
Putting the paper with the name of a deceased person into her costume, that person will cease to exist in this world from the beginning of the history.
My wives Swim2 and Nokko-chan are so cute.
>implying she wouldn't just abandon Deluge and chase Snow White with stolen Snow White's hairbrush while screaming SNOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWHITEEEEEE in the top of a massive magical submarine build by SG
If it works on herself it's fine since she can just remove the false identity so that her true personality stays.
Not so sure if she'd go as for as to remove the Bluebell side of her though due to the feelings for Deluge.
Pythie already has awesome physical stats (4 in everything; Deluge level at least), you add hairfaggotry, Marika's strength and toughness and Ripple's speed to that and you have a one woman rape machine.
I beg to differ, being able to translocate limbs is very helpful.
Also, Grace is really growing on me as I read the CN version of Limited. She's like Marika lite.
>Right now, she could go one-on-one with a whale and knock it out in one punch.
I'm not questioning the piercing power, but concussive force is different though, but I think it should be pretty possible seeing some of the feats high strength MG have accomplished
Easily. Marika wrecked the interior of the Exam Branch lobby when she got pissed off and you can imagine how solidly that place is built. And like >>153525993 said, Marika was punching tanks.
I keep thinking of this as something like the whale scene in Hancock.
Two words mah boi - snu snu.
Well, if she had become a bag lady magical girl Grace would have dragged her along anyway and thrown a terrified girl at her after her latest round of plunder.
"Arrr, don't let it be said that Captain Grace doesn't share her booty!"
The Unmarked Cast finds themselves in the events of Restart. How would things possibly develop from there? To make it less troublesome, let's pretend Cranberry is not stirring shit alongsive Fav and that Fav is not there at all.
RNG gave me La Boipucelle.
The Demon Lord is going to know they're the Demon Lord and they'll be worried about being caught though. The only people who are close to not caring are Jewbot and CM, and even then they probably don't want to be found out.
I wonder if she's brave enough for that, or if LP would let her. It might be a Pfle/SG scenario where LP will help her kill everyone and then himself so she can survive.
I love finding mahoiku art back in 2015 and before.
Bluebell herself is agile.
An item or monster put in the game by Keek with an extremely convenient ability like "Can cancel out powers" or "Can completely disintegrate target on hit" or some other asspull.
Alternatively she'll just sudoku because her origins means she won't want to win as the demon lord because that would mean killing SW and her friends.
Oh, Grace. The world is worse off for your passing.
“I told you before, didn’t I? I’ve been saying since this morning that I had a hunch. Speaking of which, those fishnet stockings of yours are pretty lewd.”
“What does that have to do with what’s going on now?!”
I feel like it would be someone less expected, but plausible, like CM or Alice depending on the type of mob it is. The Peaky Angels seems like the kind of girls who have played enough RPGs to know to buy a monster manual
The Jap exchange was
>"By the way, those fishnet stockings of yours are hot."
>"What does that have anything to do with what is going on?!"
The Captain had the right priority.
I wanna see it happen now. In Unmarked it was possible for both of them to survive but as a Demon Lord only one of them would be allowed to live. Makes me wonder if they'd stay loyal or if one of them would do something like this.
Deluge was conscious that she was bullying her childhood friend, whereas Grace had no idea she was a bully.
I like how Bluebell manipulated Deluge into bullying the Shufflin, so I'm going with her.
How about this scenario, Restart cast in Unmarked, Melville, Fal, and Keek are gone, and Cranberry and Fav are running the show similar to how they were in Unmarked, how does it go down?
On one hand Unmarked would imply that the Restart would have jack shit in the way of training and thus be way weaker, on the other hand there isn't just one but two people with Tama-like instakill abilities and a third person who would literally make Cranberry want to kill herself.
In the current TL, both Grace and Trick mentioned that Grace only beat up people who bullies Trick, so yeah it should be. CN anon should check that detail.
On the other hand, that raised the question of why Grace kicked the karate teacher's ass when Trick introduced him.
BTW, I encountered an interesting quantification of strength.
>She had probably experimented with this. The girl in the bridal gown picked up a 10-yen coin from a metal tray on the cabinet and easily bent it with her index and middle finger.
Note that Wedin is Physical 1.
I mean its not exactly a herculean feat of strength, since I'm sure there are some humans that can do that, it doesn't really quantify the max strength of a 1 star strength MG
I don't think anyone ever thought she's evil. People disliked her because she's an inconsiderate brick.
The TL did a lot of disservice to her though since it left out most of her endearing monologue and interactions. Such as when she became panic and frustrated that Trick looked anxious, because she thought that Trick should always feel safe if she's by her side.
Assuming F2P is occuring concurrently with the main novels,
meet your new head of HR
>wanting to work for magical girl 731 devision
What the fuck?
Nah, it changes the impression of her character a lot. The TL made her look like a retard obsessed with adventure, who decided to protect Trick in the final moment. The real Grace is an autist obsessed with Kayo and can't separate her from the concept of an adventure.
We don't know when Bluebell became a MG. And she might haven't learned how to utilize her power up until Laz I found her.
Laz I might have also concealed Laz III's prowess from the public. The only reason Pfle knew about her was because she's making keikaku with Laz I.
I still don't get why Lazuline I betrayed Pfle. If she had kept the alliance going on, Pfle would have gladly hired the mercenaries to kidnap Sachiko and murdering Shufflins.
Why go through the trouble of manipulating Deluge to kidnap SG to obtain Dark Cutie's group?
>go away for a bit, come back
>realise how lewd it currently looks
I don't doubt she'll want to eliminate Pfle sooner or later. What I have a problem with is why now? When she could have skipped a lot of trouble by using Pfle to destroy Puk and Osk first.
I thought it was something like this.
A work of art if I do say so myself.
Bad news, turtle shippers.
While the others had engaged in their conversation which she could not understand, Mei had been exploring all the things she could do as she was now. She could move quickly, she was very strong, and she could fly. She tried putting her hands on her belly, but she did not feel the ever-present hunger which no amount of eating could satisfy, nor did she feel the need to urinate, defecate, and even her sex drive was completely gone.
Ignore the text, I was too lazy to start a new file.
She's obviously referring to her turtle-feelings. A turtle obviously has and feels differently from a human and now that she's a human she has to adjust to her new biology. Besides, turtles are horny as fuck fuckers. Human sex-drive is nothing in comparison.
Yeah, I meant to say it was in terms of her base animal instincts. Unlike Pukin and Pythie, Mei couldn't even think.
She'll probably relearn it slowly when 7753 accidentally leaves some R-18 show on.
but she did not feel the ever-present hunger which no amount of eating could satisfy
You know, this part is very depressing. Horrifying even. Imagine being hungry all the time.
And hence it's mediocre instead of useless. Maou Pam and Bluebell are broken, but under that there's a strong magic tier such as Clamberry, Marika, SW, Alice, Ripple, Umbrain, etc. Lots of the cast actually.
I'm very happy whenever I see Lethe-sama or Bluebell.
If what Lazuline II said about Lazuline I being over a hundred year old MG was true, I wonder if other people from the LoM had known about her hatred of MGs and it makes me wonder at what point in her life had caused her to hate MGs.
I don't remember Laz II saying Laz I is hundred years old in the RAW. I'll check later.
I like how Bluebell and Deluge have certain parallels to each other with
>They both were lead and got handpicked by Lazuline I
>They both changed their personality at one time
>Lazuline III is known to keep her cool to mirror Deluge's 4/5 Calmness
>They both have ways to buff up their own stats
Cran is my wife.
No mention of her MG age at all in the RAW. I'll translate the whole page.
>Before becoming Lapis Lazuline, this girl had been doing magical girl activities under the name Blue Comet. While working hard, she caught the eyes of the previous Lapis Lazuline, who already at the time had a reasonable status within the Land of Magic and was seeking for talents.
>The previous Lapis Lazuline had earnestly pestered Blue Comet.
>Both her body and mind were tired, and she could not continue being a magical girl anymore. But she wanted the name Lapis Lazuline to continue, as a sort of evidence of her existence. If possible, she wanted that name to be passed down through many generations in the future. In exchange, she would teach the successor everything she knew about magical girls. She would turn the successor into the best magical girl, just to have that one wish granted.
>How self-interested. That person did not think about other people's troubles at all. Normally, nobody would heed such a request. But Blue Comet wasn't an ordinary magical girl. She was a magical girl who found and was found by a weirdo. She loves anything fun or interesting. So if something sounds amusing enough, she would throw her own name away to inherit another's.
>Originally, changing a magical girl's name was not permissible. But the previous Lapis Lazuline had used her status and personal connections to the fullest extent, getting everything ready for the succession.
So Lazuline I was most likely one of Clamberry's test survivors, just like the rest.
Clamberry is not that old. The most far back test we know of was Daisy, which was conducted 6-7 years before Restart. The tests might go further back, but cannot go over 30 years ago.
Nowhere did she say she's super old. She said she's tired.
Remember that Pfle only took 1 year to climb up the ranks in LoM, so having a status in the gov doesn't mean one has to spend decades in it. 3-10 years sound normal.
Mary was turned into a MG at 39. Professor Tanaka might be a middle-aged woman too when she got picked.
Marika may be strong but she doesn't have a counter to Sonia, hell none of the cast does.
>the entire cast is made up of veterans sans the PE
The veteran count is the same anon if you include the excluded characters.
>Limited have 6 Newbies
>Jokers have 5 Newbies
>Exclude Mao Pam, Grim Heart and Shufflin.
>Limited have 9 veterans
>Jokers have 9 veterans.
Which side would Ripple be on though? I guess we could exclude her to make it eight each.
Wait, I just started reading the LNs - how did they become MGs in volume 2?
They already were MGs before they got transfered into the game and Daisy had a different mascot. Do the mascots just appear out of nowhere and turn people into MGs?
how the girls in Restart became MG is a spoiler, but generally people with magic potential are found by some method, whether it be a phone game like Unmarked, or a poster that only people with potential could see like in another arc, or a fairy can turn them into MG. There are a lot of ways it can happen
Overall I'd say you're right. However apart from Marika, no other MG in Joker (GH and Shufflin are excluded) could compare to Pukin and Sonia. Its going to need several MGs in Jokers alone just to be able to fight those two and then there's still Hana and the assassin.
The assassin is a lot worse without the element of surprise, and if its a full blown team battle, I doubt they would have that element. If anything, that surprise exists more with team Joker because of Mimi
>Combatant: Pukin, Sonia, Pythie, Tot Pop, Hana, Grace, Trick, Kurukuru, Mei, Rain Pou
>Dead weight: 7753, Mana, Postarie, Wedin
>Main: Marika, Mimi, Proud, Umbrain, Filuru, Uttakatta, Kafuria, Quake, Inferno, Deluge, Tempest, Snow White
>Dead weight: Cherry
Does Ripple not count as a combatant in Limited?
Cherry has utility blinding foes and powering Marika.
7753's ability to learn about the foe is extreme important, especially against people like SW and Mimi.
Postarie pretty much counters any projectile... I guess there isn't really any projectiles.
I tried really hard to think of a use for Mana besides providing them items.
My heart skipped a beat when I first saw her design (choking Pechika). Her real personality is awesome too. 10/10 husbando.
there are surprisingly few, this is the only one I found outside of these threads
Someone put earlier in chat( couldn't find it) what if Pythie met umi when she was young on her MG candidate hunt so I drew a pic of it. (I can't draw hands)
Was looking up Miyokata pictures earlier for reference and noticed pic related. Does this mean she laughs in English?
A Deluge/Bluebell version of this.
Well guys, I had some time to kill and did some compare and contrasting with the stats of the MGs. Starting off below will be the Total Stat points list of all MGs from Unmarked to Jokers. I can't do Aces since I don't have all the stats knowledge yet.

3rd Joint Pukin, Marika Fukuroi 50

64th Mana 19
a lot of these girls are hurt by having dump stats, like Cherna would be number 1 if she had max int, or Mao Pam if she didn't have no ambition/self confidence. Pythie has high stats because of her high non-combat stats combined with good physicals, but it doesn't necessarily make her the best fighter. Add that to powers also playing a part and this list is more unreliable than it seems in terms of measuring combat ability.
Grim Heart is also another one. since she either has a 5 star or 1 star in her stats. Of course these statistics take into account not just your strength but your feelings-beliefs-willpower as well, which have nothing to do with how your combat. Also Stats don't take your abilities into account at all when it comes to using them in combat, its only the potential you ability had and how rare it is.
>something about La Pucelle's loss of virginity
Oh dear, I need to see this one finished now.
were the 2 fanbooks released after Jokers and Aces respectively? Also Queens spoilers:
I could see her ambition rising after the end of Queens and maybe her confidence as well
after looking at this closely it just shows the differences, I mean if you exclude Cranberry, the next highest Unmarked MG is Nemurin who's in 20-5th place.
Speaking of which how is Rain Pou that high on the list? she's the same as Cranberry? I thought she said she sucks in hand-to-hand combat.
She has higher non-combat stats than Cranberry. Also just because physicals are high doesn't make you good at combat, like Pythie for example has good physicals but isn't that good at combat
>. Also just because physicals are high doesn't make you good at combat, like Pythie for example has good physicals but isn't that good at combat
Which doesn't really make much sense when one of the statistics is "Combat Skill" and both Rain Pou and Pythie have a 4/5 in this stat.
yeah its strange, I guess sometimes stats don't translate well into real life situations. Pythie and Tot Pop were having a close fight with 1 Mao Pam wing, and Pythie got beaten up by Ripple and SW, though I guess you can argue that she wasn't trying to hard to win that fight, since the outcome didn't matter to her
Anon that posted >>153551293 yeah that stat "Combat Skill" in this case is to do with your proficiency in physical combat and doesn't apply with your ability. For example Styler Mimi doesn't have a combat-type ability and yet she's still a ferocious fighter (She has 4 STR 4 AGI and 4 CS). However she would lose to someone like Swim Swim who is quite a strong MG herself but not in the physical sense. If Styler Mimi and Swim Swim thought on physical alone, Swim Swim would get crushed, its thanks to having a good ability.
So I do have to say if Rain Pou and Pythie have a 4/5 in combat skill then unless its a mistake from Asari then they are both proficient in combat.
I mean based on showings it doesn't see that Pythie should have a combat skill that high, she rarely does direct combat and her only instances of direct combat were a stalemate in a 2v1 against a Mao Pam wing and a loss to a pre-Limited/Jokers SW and Ripple, and Rain Pou doesn't have any physicals showings at all besides lamenting at not being too good at hand to hand, almost all her fights revolve solely around her magic. It could be that stars are just a very rough estimate and there is an internal range there, which is what I'm currently leaning towards. Like all 4 stars are not created equal and there is a large spectrum within each ranking, if that makes sense
5 stars is nowhere near enough to accommodate all the things you can do with skilful applications of your magic, physical training ,creativity, luck, et al. Best to treat them as guidelines.
yeah, stats are probably the most basic way to divide and there are internal rankings within each star. Like someone else with 4 star strength is stronger than Pythie even though they both have 4 stars. Also as for the combat skill thing, it doesn't necessarily refer to hand to hand, it could also refer to how proficiently you use your magic in combat, Rain Pou has creative and good use of her rainbows in combat, hence its a combat skill, doesn't mean she is good at hand to hand
>in a 2v1 against a Mao Pam wing
To be fair this is Mao Pam we're talking about here.
>a loss to a pre-Limited/Jokers SW and Ripple
Ripple also has 4/5 in combat skill and Snow White had probably gone up to a 3 in combat skill. Both Snow White and Ripple's abilities can help in combat whereas Pythie's not so much. So I don't see much wrong here.
>Rain Pou doesn't have any physicals showings at all besides lamenting at not being too good at hand to hand, almost all her fights revolve solely around her magic.
She's probably being modest and
she does have an assassin's mindset so it isn't surprising she'd rather use her magic all the time instead of going up close.
>it could also refer to how proficiently you use your magic in combat,
Swim Swim was very efficient with her magic in combat, yet she only has a 2/5 in combat skill.
on the last point, Swim Swim's magic isn't exactly a complicated type, she just uses it when she sees something, its not really something that requires much creativity or skill, so it might not factor in. But its all speculation at this point anyway
>its not really something that requires much creativity or skill,
Well her magic's potential of 4/5 it implies otherwise, plus even Cranberry applauded Swim Swim's use and effectiveness of her magic. After beating her with a soundwave comments that whilst she was talented/skilled with her magic she's wasn't very strong when it comes to combat.
It just seems to me that "Combat Skill" does not include your use of your magic ability.
I still think it could, regardless of her use of magic, Swim Swim was still shit at combat, she won all her fights by just sneak attacking and being smart, but even with her power, she was pretty shit at combat. Whereas Rain Pou despite her supposedly weak hand to hand, is still efficient and deadly in direct combat as well as sneak attacks, so I think it could involve a combination of both and how that translates to real scenarios. Also the internal ranking thing also comes up where there are different ranks among the people of the same stars. Like 2 girls with 4 stars can still be vastly different in strength within that ranking and the ranking is just a very rough metric
>she won all her fights by just sneak attacking
Which was thanks to the way in which she used her magic and she did nearly beat Ripple head on as well, despite there being a 2 star gap in combat skill, since again its because of the way she used her magic.
>she was pretty shit at combat.
Yes her combat skills aren't good but she's still one of the most powerful MGs in Unmarked.
> is still efficient and deadly in direct combat
So is Swim Swim, even Cranberry said her ability is top class and one of the strongest in combat. Yet Swim Swim's Combat Skill is a 2/5. The only explanation for this is that "Combat Skill" judges you on your physical prowess only, in which she isn't good.
>Like 2 girls with 4 stars can still be vastly different in strength within that ranking and the ranking is just a very rough metric.
If you were talking about 2 MGs that both had 5 stars then I could see your point as they are both at the top and the top can have different levels. 4 stars isn't and I just don't see there being such a 'huge' gap as you're suggesting.
In the end though this is just speculation and my take on what "Combat Skill" is exactly.
“We should go beyond regions and actively make contact with the human world. When Magical Girls get serious, they can prevent tragedies from happening.” A girl who advocated that went to the Middle East to bring down the government of a certain nation, and after that she proceeded to take out numerous evil Magical Girls one after the other. Thus, everyone began referring to her with the provocative nickname of the “Magical Girl Hunter”.
