This episode differs from the previous episodes in that it focuses on several magical girls instead of one or two. The magical girls continue to fight amongst each other, however. Amidst the backstories and the revealed identities, the new mahou shoujo is also introduced. Finally, it seems like one particular magical girl is finally making her move.
(SPOILERS IN THIS SECOND HALF OF THIS REVIEW)
While I did say this episode featured several magical girls, the ones who received the most focus were Sister Nana, who’s really against the in-fighting, and Weiss Winterprison. This makes sense as they’re one of the four partnerships, but they haven’t received any real special attention before this episode.
The other partnership that’s yet to really receive focus, Calamity Mary and Magicaloid 44, is just obsessed with money, which makes characterization for them not nearly as needed. Still, Magicaloid 44 dominates a decent amount of the episode since we get to see her money-grubbing ways.
Cranberry finally shows her true colors as someone who only wants to fight strong opponents. She also has a special role in this elimination game, apparently, which might make her excluded from the weekly rankings as a result? Either way, she picks several fights this episode.
The new magical girl, Hardgore Alice, is formally introduced this episode, too. What a name. We still don’t know if she is a fan of or a foe for Snow White.
I’m guessing the next episode is going to continue showing magical girls fighting other magical girls as this episode ends with Cranberry about to throw down with another magical girl. Maybe Hardgore Alice will receive more attention, too. Episode 6’s title, “Get the Super-Rare Items!” is interesting, too. Now who shows up with an interesting item in the OP?
Anyways, see you next week! The rest of the post will feature pictures from the episode. Avoid if you’re not into spoilers.
