With the newly added app feature allowing the magical girls to transfer magical candies to other magical girls, how will Snow White fare with the five-girl group targeting her large amount of magical candies? Who’s last in the weekly ranking? SPOILERS IN THIS EPISODE REVIEW.
I think this episode is a step in the right direction for Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku. Since the magical girls don’t know who to trust because everyone is desperate to live, the show suddenly has room for interesting developments as well as chances to demonstrate the girls’ magical abilities. That means combat scenes, YEAH!
Given how she has been interacting with the other magical girls thus far, however, I can’t say that Ruler being the one who ends up last (and thus dying) is a total surprise. I mean, she treated her followers like garbage and there was the instance of Nemurin entering Swim Swim’s dream and telling her that anyone can become a princess. As a result, Swim Swim came to the conclusion that she can’t be a ruler with Ruler around. At any rate, the backstabbing scheme itself was well done and I hope I’m not alone in appreciating Ruler’s “incompetent” followers pulling the wool over her eyes like that.
Obviously Snow White and La Pucelle, who both admire pure and just mahou shoujo, hate how the other magical girls are stooping to thievery and sneaky deeds, but this kind of dirty play is here to stay, I think. Since it gives the show its own identity, I’m all for it.
Ripple and Top Speed then meet up with Sister Nana and Weiss Winterprison on Sister Nana’s request. Ripple is on guard after what happened to Ruler, but we’ll have to see what happens next week.
The episode ends with the new magical girl roaming the streets. We’ve seen her in the OP and ED! And she seems obsessed with looking for a “white magical girl.” Snow White just can’t catch a break, it seems.
Next week’s episode is titled, “New Character!” It’s gotta be about the new girl. See you next time!
