T(a)LK — Mahou Shoujo Site, Episode 4: It doubles as a choker

We fawn over her highness Sarina.

I was serious when I said I was gonna catch up with these while I can (xD), so here’s our T(a)LK for the fourth episode of Mahou Shoujo Site. I’m a teeny bit sad that we weren’t able to put this out close to when the episode aired because, as I allude to our talks for episode three, Site’s starting to get legit hype starting with thissun’ — but at the same time, I’m mainly the reason why these are late anyways, so I shouldn’t really be complaining.

BUT, better late than never right?
Relive our excitement as we collectively breathe sighs of relief knowing that at the very least Devils Line is the only bad show in our lineup now 😀



Leap
;;(^o^ )
Well things certainly slowed down here.
Which is good, we got some much needed exposition in a surprising condensed manner.


TPAB
(o˘◡˘o)
It’s slowly starting to make sense.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah, things are beginning to fall into place as well.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
And character arcs are getting established well enough that we see their end goal.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
True say.
This turned out to be a pretty good episode


Leap
(^_^)
Even Sarina got some backstory!


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I actually love that. Sarina ftw.
Is it evil of me to say that Aya kinda deserved what happened to her?
I think she did. I’m sorry.


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
The weird thing is, I sorta get where Sarina’s coming from?
Like, Aya could’ve just said thanks before things escalated.
Though I guess, in hindsight, Aya would’ve ended up owing her a debt of servitude after the fact and she’d still be where we’re she’s at now.


Keiko
( > .ლ )
Yeah, no, I agree… she had it coming


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂლ )
Sarina has all sorts of danger flags.
Easily avoidable from the beginning.
Buy Aya didn’t even have the foresight to see that Sarina is kinda psychotic.
Did the eyes not give it away? Hahaha!


Keiko
Σ(・o・;)
Exactly.
It’s not difficult to just say a ‘thank you’ so she brought that on herself really.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Sarina kinda went rabid because she knew the girl had no fight in her.



Leap
;;(^o^ )
Well, come to find out she does have some fight in her, and now Sarina has a sick scar to prove it (though technically that was all Yatsumura)


TPAB
(b^-^)b
I like Sarina’s scar.
Whose is better? Muscular’s from BokuAca or Sarina’s?


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Girl from Devils Line, obviously.
Her scar is somehow bigger than the wound she got!
But yeah, Sarina’s is actually pretty rad.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah, Sarina has a pretty cool scar… doubles as a choker.
Hahaha! Obviously Devils Line wins.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
A bit bummed she didn’t bleed from it though.
She didn’t bleed. Did you guys notice?
When she cut down the crow.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
Not where we see…
Poor crow by the way (xD)


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah…
He annoyed the wrong human, lol


TPAB
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
So she bleeds from another orifice, Hahaha!


Leap
(´・×・`)
I’m guessing ears for no particular reason.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
So she’s apparently the new magical hunter now.
I found that fascinating.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
About that, admin said something interesting…


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah, the admin said to collect the sticks for it right?


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Yeah yeah. Why did it ask Shioi to collect sticks?
Whereas before we thought she was doing it of her own volition.
And now she’s asking Sarina to do the same.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I actually like the deliberate flow of info regarding that. cause when she appointed Sarina as the hunter, that question immediately comes up. She also told Sarina to tickle the ear and discover the tempest. Maybe the horror of the tempest is really extreme.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah. She was probably told all about it.
It does seem like a pretty big deal.


Leap
(°o°;)
Makes me wonder whether the admin itself also wary of it.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
Admin didn’t force them to hunt, right?
They were just appointed to be magical girls?


Leap
(๑°o°๑)
Fighting only started because of the magical hunter… right?


Keiko
(°o°;)
Yeah I think so…


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
So admin has ulterior motives…
Maybe collect some expendable energy for his other planet, kinda like a certain unkillable mascot turning girls into magical girls.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
I was thinking, like, maybe there are actually multiple admins and they have their own little game that they’re playing with each other.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Ohh that would be interesting.



TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
Big bro is actually seemingly walking into that role, it seems.
He says he doesn’t feel human, right?


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Outright says he’s a god xD


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
The guy thinks too highly of himself.
But yeah, it does seem like he’s going to become entangled in this.


TPAB
(/  ‘з’)/
Not really sure how though…
What do you guys think?


Leap
;;(^o^ )
Probably just keeps trying to access the site himself I imagine


TPAB
( ° o°)!
Maybe team up with someone who can access it?


Keiko
(・o・。)
That would be the easiest route with him trying to find out and access the site


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Sarina x Big Bro incoming?


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah like Sarina… that’s likely since they both hate Aya.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
Can you guys explain why Sarina searched tempest, and then got mad and left?
That one stood out weird for me.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
My guess is admin just told her about it like with Shioi.
Or she pieced it together on her own.
As to why she was miffed, no clue


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah, I’m not too sure what happened there either.


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
Her goal is clear though – to kill the main characters.
I can’t wait.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Same. That looks to be a pretty good goal for her


Leap
(๑°o°๑)
Yatsumura is also on her last ropes.
In hindsight, that was such a flag by Aya.
I thought Yatsumura was a goner with her whole friends forever speech.
It’s gonna be interesting how she’s gonna continue being a factor in all this now that she’s in that state. Assuming of course that she makes it out of there.



TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I actually thought Sarina got Yatsumura.
But I think she’s fine. We just needed to know about her past and that dude she tied up.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
True. Also I don’t think the show would kill her off this early


TPAB
Yeah, not this early at least.
Aya on the other hand seems to be being polished for a bigger role though.
Maybe she’ll even fight Sarina solo.


Leap
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
At the very least it does feel like she’s being setup for that yep.


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
What did you think of Yatsumura’s flashback?
The killer, more importantly.


Leap
(’へ’)
Guy was a creep.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂლ )
Waiting for her to mature, lol


Keiko
“(>ლ)”
Agreed he was a creep. Deserved what he got really.
Like, that’s just disgusting really.


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
And did they really make it so Yatsumura’s mom was pregnant when she died? lol


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
I like that touch, lol


Keiko
(* >ω<)
Adds a bit more horror to the whole thing



TPAB
( ° o°)!
Why is she blonde though?
Someone explain.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Main character tropes, recessive genes, infidelity…


Keiko
(;¬_¬)
Does it really matter.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
i feel like the show wanted us to pick up on it.
But maybe its just me.
I mean, one character has green hair, lol


Leap
w(°o°)w
I mean, Aya’s brother has blue hair so (xD)


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Hair colours are always random in anime which is why I tend to ignore it lol
They never make much sense lol


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
It just looked weird here, Hahaha
But I guess it’s a magical girl trope.
Nice job sneaking that in.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
Ehh… It’s a general anime trope I think, but yeah..
Well, speaking of recurrent anime themes and tropes, lol, transfer student!


TPAB
( ° o°)!
I did not expect dog girl to be back so soon.


Leap
(^_^)
And she’s on the prowl (heh)


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Hahaha, yeah, Nijimi transferred.
lol and Sarina just told her she knows where the girl she’s looking for is.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
I also did not expect that to happen so soon.
So what’s next you think? Dog Girl goes after Flat Chest?
While the main characters stop her?
And where does Sarina play into all this?


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Probably.


Leap
( ^o^);;
Sarina would probably just go right after Aya.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah nothing to it really. Ruin Aya bit by bit


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
It looks messy on paper,
Unless Sarina just hangs back.



Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
I am curious however as to whether Nijimin can command Shioi to wake up.
‘Cause I don’t really see Sarina telling them about the tempest, so Shioi’s still their best bet there I would think.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah, it’ll be interesting to see if Nijiman can


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
They need to talk somehow, so yeah, I think that might happen
But I actually think Sarina herself might talk.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Really?
I don’t think she will.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Like, she could gloat about the hopelessness of it all and reveal things when she’s near death maybe.


Leap
(;^o^ヽ)
Nah, I think she’s gonna be all like “The Tempest is.. Oh, you didn’t know? Poor thing.”


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Hahaha! Yeah I see her doing that more.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I think Flat Chest might actually die early, by Dog Girl’s hand, to make it more hopeless and make Sarina the focal point.


Leap
(^_^)
I think Dog Girl bites (heh) it first.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
And Sarina might get the panties in the end, yeah.
That power fits a psychopath like her.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
….. *lightbulb*
No, Big Bro is gonna get the panties!!


Keiko
o(≧∇≦o)
Really now??


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Dude wants to be a god right?
This is as close as he can get.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
It’s plausible enough for this show to be honest.
But his rise to godhood might play more with the site than an actual stick.


Leap
ヾ(・ω・。)シ
Baby steps, my friend. Baby steps.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
That’s true.
He could get his hand on a stick and work his way up from there.



TPAB
(๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)
My problem is with the confrontations. Will Sarina and Dog Girl team up?
Is it just Dog Girl that’s gonna be attacking?


Leap
;;(^o^ )
I doubt Sarina would get in the way of that after setting the whole thing up.
More than that I think she meant to set Nijimin loose on her own.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
So she will sit back, right? Just watch it all from afar?
Maybe attack at a more opportune time?


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah, that seems more likely.
Right now it seems she’s just going to stir the pot so to speak


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Probably kill Yatsumura’s hostage for the lulz.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Sarina might actually let the guy go.
While they’re busy with Dog Girl.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Ohh, yeah, that would be better development.
Then he goes after Yatsumura in her weakened state.


Keiko
(・o・。)
That is a possibility…


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
Sarina is just a wonderful character full of potential, lol


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
She sure is



Leap
(^_^)
The hero that we needed, lol


TPAB
( ° o°)!
There are more characters to be introduced though, right?
Given the sticks in the OP?


Leap
(゚o゚〃)
Nah, those were all I think.
We’ve seen all the wielders of the sticks show in the OP.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah I think this is everyone assembled.


TPAB
(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
OMG, so early?


Keiko
┬┬◡ノ(° -°ノ)
Yeah.
I guess this means the story can get going now without anymore introductions.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
Yeah, slowly build up to the tempest. I like that the show is focused.


Leap
(˘ω˘ ≡ ˘ω˘)
If it is, it’s off to a good start with this episode.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah, true.
It’s slowly building things up but it’s looking good as of now.


TPAB
(/  ‘з’)/
Who do you guys predict will die first?


Leap
(´・×・`)
Of the remaining girls, I’ll say Nijimin


TPAB
(。•́︿•̀。)
No love for Dog Girl.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Too overpowered for her own good.


Keiko
(・o・。)
I think it’ll either be Shioi or Nijimin
Nijimin is more likely though


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
I still say its Flat Chest girl, but i’m actually excited to see who goes first.
By the way, is the convenience store guy the stalker??
The obsessed fan of dog girl??


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah I think he is.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Huh, yeah, I think he was, lol
Missed him completely.
They keep showing him too so you know for sure he’s gonna be a part of something.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
He’s only connected to Dog Girl plot-wise, so he might go to her, Big Bro follows (since they kinda met earlier) and obtains the panties….


Keiko
(・o・。)
He’ll probably turn up at the school to meet Nijimin or something


TPAB
(*´▽`*)
So many possibilities..
Nice to see this show is blossoming.


Leap
(^_^)
We’ll see if it holds up soon enough. For now, ratings?


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
8/10
I love this episode.


Keiko
d(^-^b)
Err I’ll give this ep a 7. It was pretty good.


Leap
( ̄▽ ̄)ノ
Oooh, and it’s an 8 for me too


Not gonna lie, formatting these are a real chore xD
But it’s definitely worth it ’cause these look so neat (at least I think it does, lol) once I get done with ’em. That, and the way I format my song translation posts is way more tiring. It definitely helps that these talks with TPAB and Keiko are so fun to go back to.

Don’t take my word for it though!

See us three just melt all over Boku no Hero Academia episode four over at TPAB’s, and try to spot a cheeky little spoiler drop by yours truly in the opening minutes.

Watch us make fun of Devils Line’s FeMC here at Keiko’s, as I come to the glorious realization that this show is basically True Blood: the anime.
