The first segment featured our heroines struggling with a test that seemed to require a lot of memorization. This segment spoke to me in so many ways, so many.
We got lots of cute and funny stuff seeing the girls find ways to make studying for the test easier. Then we got to Nono who told the others about how she sang the tunes of a lullaby whenever she was stressed. It helped calm her down and sometimes fall asleep. Chiya rewarded Nono by caressing her cheek like the harem queen that she is.
During test day Nono sang her incantation and passed the test, showing off her own unique urara style.
Nina saw that her imouto was growin up, saddening her. The bittersweet feeling of one day no longer being able to baby your child, or in Nina’s case her younger sister yet being proud of them slowly becoming strong and independent. At least Nina will always have her wifey.
The next segment had Koume getting the spotlight. Miss Nina’s class that day was about witches and their similarities to urara and Koume was the most pumped. Her friends got her to reveal that she knew a witch and tell them her story.
One day at the Yukimi estate a transfer student from France came to visit. Her name was Marie Quispiroucouette. She quickly attached herself to Koume, playing pranks and playfully teasing her.
Koume enjoyed her time with Marie very much. She wanted to brag about how cool Marie’s magic was but her parents only saw her as an ordinary magician. Koume didn’t like that everyone didn’t believe in Marie’s powers and got into a bit of trouble because of it. Marie still liked her regardless.
Unfortunately their fun times wouldn’t last. A pandemic had spread and the superstitous blamed Marie. She was sadly used to it. Koume begged to come along with her and become her apprentice. Marie made a deal with her, become the best witch in Japan and then they’ll meet again.
Back in the present Koume understood the reason why Marie gave her such a difficult goal was to discourage her from a life full of potential danger and discrimination but of course it only served to motivate her even more. Good stuff.
