Magical Girl Site Episode 2: Magical Hunter

Whoever decided to continue on this twisted journey with me I salute you. People who could not handle the hurt need not feel bad at all. This show ain’t for everyone. The premiere made that clear.

Tsuyuno using her stick.jpg

Tsuyuno using her “stick”.

When we last left Aya she was about to be scarred by the butthurt bullies who for some reason felt wronged by the loss of their douchey buddies. Luckily she was saved by Tsuyuno who deemed it the time to introduce herself to Aya. We’ll get back to the bullies in a bit.

As Aya followed Tsuyuno she explained her stick/wand (Whichever you prefer)’s ability to stop time for everyone but the ones names Tsuyuno has saved in her magic phone. She told Aya about her magic pistol’s power to teleport people. More on that later. Aya felt guilty for essentially killing the two bullies but Tsuyuno said scum like them deserve to be killed, especially ones who attack her. Tsuyuno listing all the sorts of scum who should be axed was nice. Great job seiyu. Aya would later wonder what could have happened to Tsuyuno to make her hate humanity so much. Girl, humanity as a whole already sucks. You don’t really need a traumatic experience to look at other people in a negative light.

Bully got cut deep yo.

When the two were far away enough from being suspected of anything Tsuyuno restarted time and the bully got what she deserved. She didn’t kill her but she made sure she wouldn’t be running her mouth for a LOOOOOOONG time. The last bully of course was traumatized leading me to believe she may become a future threat to our heroines. Wouldn’t surprise me. Anyway Tsuyuno asked Aya where her home was and they headed there.

Life Emblem thing.

After meeting Aya’s brother Tsuyuno immediately sensed he was no longer human. Aya didn’t detail her abuse when Tsuyuno asked because the plot said so. Yes I know this is common with domestic abuse victims (The inability to tell others about their suffering) but yeah, because the plot said so. Moving right along Tsuyuno tells Aya what she knows about being a magical girl. They can use their “sticks” as much as they want…so long as they keep an eye on the heart shaped emblem. Besides the change in appearance and bleeding should a girl use their powers too much the emblem slowly fades away and they would die.

When Aya asked Tsuyuno why she shared such important information with her she said the first reason was because her “stick” would come in handy (though we all know there’s a greater reason). The second reason was to tell her that there are many other magical girls…and warn her that some of them killed other magical girls. One in particular was the Magical Hunter who killed them and retrieved their “sticks”. Tsuyuno worked together with another magical girl named Rina to track down the hunter. One day however, she disappeared. Before disappearing she sent a photo of the hunter.

Aya was still unsure about everything and felt unsafe so Tsuyuno to watch over her all night. It was the right call even though Tsuyuno didn’t get any sleep.

The boobies betrayed us both Aya.

Aya felt bad Tsuyuno pulled an all-nighter so she let her rest and went on her way. Of course Tsuyuno felt her presence and followed her. She ran into a super suspicious hottie but poor Aya didn’t know any better. Tsuyuno let her guard down due to her not expecting one of the “sticks” the Magical Hunter stole having the ability to change her appearance. She used another “stick” that had the ability to seal herself and Aya in a magic proof box negating Tsuyuno’s magic. She proceeded to troture Aya and was about to finish her off.

Aya was too scared to teleport the hunter away fearing she would kill again. Luckily Tsuyuno assured her it would be okay this time and she trusted her. She of course was right. The two found the hunter at her departed kitty friend’s old home.

After capturing the hunter Tsuyuno quickly figured out her identity being that of her missing partner Rina. She went all “bad cop” on her ass and got her to talk. She revealed the reason she hunted down magical girls and took their sticks was because of a secret she uncovered hidden behind Frieza Mascot’s left ear. She clicked on it revealing a countdown to “Tempest” set for August 11th at 7:23 PM. The “Tempest” would wipe out all impurities from their world and create a portal to a new world. This freaked her out so much that instead of forming an army to prepare themselves for the threat her solution was to kill off as many as she could and steal their “sticks”. OF COURSE!

Before they could get a better answer for her actions she threw up lots of ketchup. Probably went overboard with the magic.

So basically when the girls do sick and twisted stuff it’s less difficult to stomach than whenever the brother’s on screen. Next week we’ll have to put up with more brother screen time doing dumb stuff I imagine but I’m more interested in the other killer magical girl shown before the ED.

  1. Yeah…this show is sort of like someone saw Madoka Magica and Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, decided not “not heavy enough subject material” and “not bloody/gory enough” and strove to create a series that is basically the two former ones multiplied…and apparently the anime is the “toned down” version compared to the manga, as is common to see…uuh.

    Well, I’m good at dealing with these kinds of series, so I’ll be sticking around through to the end.

    Greeeat plan, taking other people’s sticks to arm yourself, but then forgetting there’s a usage limit to your magic supply, after which you die anyway…you were investigating the site for goodness’ sake, at least remember the basic rules!

    Tsuyuno is…an interesting one. She sort of feels a bit like Homura during the Madoka series timeline, but without protecting a specific someone to quite the same degree, though we’ll see where this series goes, I guess. I do indeed wonder what kind of life she came from to hold such harsh, unforgiving world views at her age, and to be so ready to murder people, even if those people are the villains…

    Aya is such a cute soft ball of fluff…that the world has already mostly broken and that this series is almost guaranteed to almost completely destroy any semblance of.

      I don’t care that it’s toned down to be honest. It still gets the job done.

      Must have been mentally unstable and the Tempest thing made her lose what remained of her logic and reasoning.

      Very intrigued by her.

      Wouldn’t surprise me. Poor dear is set up to be another cutie stripped of her innocence. Well she’s already close to losing it but you get the point.

      • Ah, I didn’t mean the “toned down” bit as being a bad thing…like this it’s actually a goo thing, I think. Rather I was thinking the “toned down” version in the anime is already so harsh, I’m not sure I want to even imagine much how much more so it is in the manga version…

    Not as gory this time around but still not pretty either. After 2 I still like the show (I’m not sure this is one you “enjoy” per say) but I’m still giving it the 3 ep trial before making the final call. Most likely it’ll pass though, unless it all goes to shit next ep. Highly doubt that’ll happen though. Looking forward to next week and the ongoing battles these girls will go through.

      Really the only thing that bugs me is the brother. Everything else so far has been the standard “Moepocalypse” stuff. It WILL get worse but I’m sure I can handle most of it. Brother sucks because I loathe his villain archetype.

    When Tsuyuno and Aya walked around the frozen city, it reminded me of Fragtime. Kind of sweet. And I hope Aya can be brave soon and be a badass. I understand her not willing to kill. And glad Tsuyuno was so nice with her about that.

    Rina went crazy and killing everyone else rather than join forces with them maybe because she’s emotionally, I don’t know, not well? The Magical Girls who got picked must have some traumatic experience that got them not believe in world. Made me thinking about the person who hired them. But we have to wait.

      Speaking of Frag Time, what do you personally think about the part during the confession in the end? Truthfully, I felt kinda cringe at the fact that those girls are actually announcing their devotion all over the school with everyone’s watching. Sure it something we’d rarely seen before, but to me, it just killed the mood.

        I think that was the best part of the manga. I was bored until almost the end. It’s about two girls who always hiding their true self. The ending justified it’s about time people knows who they really are. And a confession in front of people is sweet, nothings wrong with that.

    Honestly, I’d compare this anime best to a tsundere, unlike Madoka Magica and Magical Girl Raising Project who are essentially yanderes. They pretended to be sweet and innocent at the start but revealed their darker side while this anime started very intense and combative, but the second episode was more . . . tame. I’m sure this anime will get darker as it goes on, but I feel like it’ll probably end with an over all more happier ending than its predecessors (largely thanks to the fact there’s only been two characters worth caring about and if either of them die it would surely make the story pointless.)

    Yes, I’m essentially using anime character tropes to describe entire anime, but if game consoles and battleships can be turned into cute girls, why not entire anime themselves?

    I almost dropped this after the first episode, but someone noted it was by the author of Magical Girl Apocalypse, so I thought I’d give it a little more time. Episode 2 isn’t hitting as many bad notes for me.

    Tsuyuno sounds like someone you can count on. Aya’s a kind hearted person, even if the rest of the world is crazy. Not many anime would have a billboard advertising dog play.

    I’m glad they kind of toned down the violence to make room for some plot.
    This episode definitely got us a bit of shipping material for Aya and Tsuyuno

    The anime is doing a wonderful job and justice to the manga, I find the brother even more dislikeable and I thought that couldn’t be possible. Oh, the next girl, she’s a crazy one, oh my so excited, I am LOVING every second of this dreadful misery they call Mahou Shoujo Site
