T(a)LK — Mahou Shoujo Site, Episode 5: Yo-yo beats gun, pen beats yo-yo, gun beats pen

Weren’t we supposed to be hating on this show?

Third (!!) T(a)LK post in a row! You guys know the gist of what this little collab of ours entails, but I really do hope this catch-up weekend (not!weekend) of sorts has served to be of some entertainment for the start of your respective weeks. We’re five weeks in to this season but myself, TPAB, and Keiko have yet to grab a hold of an ideal time for us to just sit down and talk but do believe we’ve been doing our best to manage — all to give you guys an extra seat in our round table (that, and it’s always nice to talk about currently airing shows with fellow anime fans).

Fifth episode of Site for ya, and boy are we turning into a bunch of fanboys/girl xD



Leap
o(^▽^)o
Gentleman, Lady — We have ourselves a show!
This was a gooood episode.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah, it sure was!


TPAB
(o˘◡˘o)
I’m just glad she bleeds from her ear.



Leap
(^_^)
Totally called that (xD)
Oh. Anyone notice the OP animation evolved?
Moar magical girls!


TPAB
( ° o°)!
It did? I did count the cast, and everyone has appeared.
Including the police guy.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah, it seems like there’s still more characters to appear


Leap
;;(^o^ )
It changed yep. It started showing different clips from the ones that were there before.
Like, before, it still had that shot of Shioi zapping Aya.


TPAB
(๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)
I’ve actually been pondering on 2 things in the OP: the tempest and the brother.
The brother teleports behind his sis, and the tempest look like an embryo.


Leap
(゚o゚〃)
…Does it though?
It’s a column almost. Not sure how that’s embryo-shaped.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah, I’d agree. Seems more like just a column to me.


TPAB
( / ‘з’)/
The bottom part is like that with all the hands but the top is like a giant, like, circular, looks like an egg kinda thing. And sperms will go in it.


Leap
(゚o゚〃)
Uohh, I don’t pay attention to the top part of that thing.
I should give that a second look.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Really? I didn’t even notice that.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
Yep. In the ED, the sperms go into the light


Leap
(≧౪≦๑)
As sperms are wont to do.



TPAB
(o≧∇≦)b
lol, it looks like they’re impregnating the thing.
Really I mostly notice these things ’cause i really like the ED and OP.


Keiko
(* >ω<)
I kind of zone out with them so I don’t really notice much lol


Leap
( ^o^);;
I end up focusing more on the music (xD)


Keiko
ヾ(・ω・。)シ
Same here I just listen to the music, lol.


TPAB
(꒪⌓꒪)
I didn’t notice the OP changing though, lol


Leap
o(^▽^)o
At any rate, fights!
Or, well, there was just the one.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah! Aya and Sarina fought!


TPAB
(๑°o°๑)
This was an exciting episode.


Leap
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Very fast paced, and really well executed in my opinion.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
It sure was. I liked how that fight played out as well


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I love Sarina btw.
MVP of the anime, lol
You killed the person that was gonna kill you, so I’m going to kill you now.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Same here. I love how she just ripped into Aya.


Leap
(´・×・`)
Shame that she has a pretty bare bones stick though apparently.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
It kinda suits her though, since she’s unpredictable.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
True. I think it works for her.


Leap
( ^o^);;
She does kinda fight like a brute yep.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
She’s also the hunter so she might gain more.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah.
She does have to go on a hunt so it works for an unexpected kill.


TPAB
(>;^o^)
I’d rather get hammered to death than sliced by a yoyo.



Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Back to that fight though.
Man did I love the whole mix up of sticks that Yatsumura pulled off.
I was hoping for plays with mechanics like that since the first episode.


Keiko
(・o・。)
That was pretty cool. She thinks fast.
How many was she using? Like 3?


Leap
( ^o^);;
Just the two I think, the pen and that remote thingy.


TPAB
(๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)
She kept the barrier on for a long time though…


Leap
(。•́︿•̀。)
It cost her. Bad.


Keiko
(´・×・`)
True. That took a lot of her already diminishing life span.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Bad move for her, since I don’t think Flat Chest is worth it at this point.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Real quick, before we discuss the repercussions of Yatsumura’s actions.
I realized something off towards the end of that fight sequence
Well, not off, but.. peculiar
When the building was collapsing, right?
Aya had the barrier around her and Yatsumura, and Sarina was outside
Her teleport shot passed through it?


Keiko
(´・×・`)
No. I think she dropped the barrier at that point and then put it back up…
That’s what it seemed like to me.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Yeah, the yellow barrier kinda went out a bit… I think.



Leap
(’へ’)
I’d need to rewatch it, lol


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah…
Also, everyone say the barrier right? I wonder what they’ll make of it.


Leap
( ^o^);;
Oh yeaaah, people don’t know about this magic stuff (xD)


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
They deactivated it too without Aya’s help.


Keiko
Σ(・o・;)
Yeah how was that possible?


TPAB
(๑°o°๑)
I think the police guy in the OP has a hand in that.


Keiko
(・o・。)
And also, wasn’t Aya unconscious? So how was the barrier still up?
So many unanswered questions. I’m really curious about all of this


Leap
( ^o^);;
I thought Nijimin would make a bigger deal about that barrier to be honest.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Yeah me too.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
That stick belonged to her friend right?
The one that Shioi murdered?


Keiko
(・o・。)
I think so…


TPAB
( ° o°)!
oh yeah, why didn’t she realize that.


Leap
w(°o°)w
Blind rage I guess.



TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I love her go-to move though.
‘I wish all your limbs are broken’ essentially, Haha!


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Haha! Yeah that was a good one.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
But in Nijimin doing so, does that sort of confirm then that her powers do in fact affect comatose and otherwise unconscious people?


Keiko
(・o・。)
I’m guessing. That makes her power quite strong.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂლ )
Never eavesdrop on her conversation, lol


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Or fall asleep beside her xD


Keiko
“(>ლ)”
Yeah, it’s too dangerous.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
What do you guys think about Flat Chest?
Is she nearing her end?


Keiko
w(°o°)w
Who knows. Depends what the girl that entered her room plans to do.


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
It’s gonna be funny having now two coma’d girls as part of the main cast with the potential addition of Yatsumura, but I think that’s what’s gonna happen yep.


TPAB
(๑°o°๑)
I thought Shioi would die in this episode, but it looks like she’ll stick around for a bit more.
I think she might even wake up.


Keiko
(・o・。)
I thought she’d die as well but she’s still kicking.
I mean, I don’t think they’d kill her off yet would they?


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
The new characters kinda threw a wrench on the story.



Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
It seems like they’re targeting girls who know about the tempest.
Interesting faction.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
Which means they also know about it, about the “only one girl will survive” thing


Keiko
(・o・。)
True. I wonder what they’re up to.
Yeah… but they don’t seem to be collecting sticks either, so what are they after?


Leap
( ^o^);;
Just keeping people’s mouths shut?


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Probably asked by the admin to do it, or something.


Leap
(゚o゚〃)
But that seems counterintuitive to Nana’s/Sarina’s little magical hunter side plot here.
Also, lol, admin is Nana I guess.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah that’s true.
It seems they’re working separately doing something else.
Nana’s a fun name, lol, doesn’t seen that evil.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
We don’t know Nana’s plan though.
She also appears in this ep, btw, seemingly giving another stick to another girl.


Keiko
(・o・。)
Does it? I think I missed that bit.
True… Nana’s plans is a bit of a mystery as well


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
She does the “you unfortunate girl” line that she say to the girls when the building collapsed


Leap
;;(^o^ )
I thought she was just voicing over the collapse itself.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
The admin doesn’t just appear for something like that though.


Keiko
(´・×・`)
Ohh right.
Yeah I didn’t think she was giving a stick to anyone at that point either.
But who knows since we didn’t see who she was saying it to.


Leap
(;^o^ヽ)
It’s not like we know any other potential magical girl candidates so foreshadowing that was kinda moot if it really was that.


TPAB
(/  ‘з’)/
You never know. It could be foreshadowing.
‘You ruined my life when you destroyed that building’ or something, lol


Leap
Σ(≧∇≦ )
True, it’s not an empty apartment I’d imagine (xD)


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah that’s true


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂლ )
When they showed the rescuers were shocked though, I initially thought it was because they found the killer cut in half, Hahaha!


Leap
(*´▽`*)
Oh, dude, Yatsumura’s creeper died!
If these were the Winter games I’d so be winning now, lol


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah, Sarina just went and killed him


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
Yatsumura had her way with him though, lol


Keiko
(๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)
I wonder if Yatsumura even has the will to live now that her revenge is gone.


Leap
(^_^)
She has Aya to live for :3



TPAB
( ̄▽ ̄)ノ
Yeah, don’t worry about blondie. She’s strong
Well, she flat-lined, but I think she’s fine.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
True.
Hopefully come next ep and she’ll still be around


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Anyone else laughed at Aya’s parent’s concern for her? (xD)
Like, where were you guys when this poor girl was being bullied 24/7?


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah they never used to care much about her but now all of a sudden they’re overflowing with worry


TPAB
( ; ▽; )
Yeah, their concern looks fake
But I think for plot purposes they needed to be out of the house though.
Not sure why, but pro’lly ’cause Big Bro finally met Dog Girl.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yep, probably done so big brother can be alone when Nijimin comes for a visit.


Leap
( ˙ ¯ ˙)._.)”
Yeah, that would’ve been why.
wonder what happens between the two (xD)


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
We’ll find out soon. I wonder if she manipulates him


TPAB
(๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)
I am scared for the panties…
I think the stalker fan could also be there.


Leap
(゚o゚〃)
Oh yeah, they showed him again huh.


Keiko
(・o・。)
He was following her wasn’t he?


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
What will those 3 do, lol
I am excited to see that,



Leap
(^_^)
It’s gonna be a mess in the Asagiri household
Can’t wait.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah, haha, what type of mess remains to be seen.
Looks like next week’s going to be a fun episode.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
Seems to be a calm episode, ’cause new characters are introduced.
But I think a fight could still break out.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Yeah, especially with Sarina out in the wild.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
That’s true.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
What do you guys think the police guy will do? What’s his role in the story?
He’s a wonderful outlier at the moment.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
Probably the only real good guy I imagine.
That or a terrible terrible guy.
I’d say it’s up in the air xD


Keiko
w(°o°)w
Not sure really.
Though I suspect he probably knows something about the Site or has been sent to investigate the magical lol
Yeah he is an ambiguity right now.


TPAB
( / ‘з’)/
Maybe add info to the tempest mystery???
But yeah, I like how we don’t know how he fits in the puzzle.


Leap
(´・×・`)
This show doesn’t need any more enemies, lol


Keiko
(・o・。)
I’m hoping he is a good guy too.
And yeah, true there are enough of them already.


TPAB
( ° o°)!
What about big bro? Still think he’ll get them panties??


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
Yep, 100%


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
His eyes when he met dog girl kinda excited me.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Yeah, it seems like trouble’s brewing there.


Leap
(๑≧౪≦)
Watch Big Bro bust out some noise cancelling headphones that he uses for studying and suddenly it’s game over Nijimin.


TPAB
(๑°o°๑)
Here’s a fun one: can you guys predict who will die first?
I think we did this last ep.
But the new wrinkles made the plot complicated.


Keiko
(・o・。)
True I’m not sure who will die first at this rate. It could be anyone or nobody.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
I’m betting my other kidney on Yatsumura
I think she’ll go first


Leap
;; (^o^ )
I still think it’s Nijimin.
But Shioi is on the brink with little plot relevance now seeing as there’s another, more conscious (lol) person now who knows about the tempest.


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah Nijimin’s the only one who isn’t tangled in the new mess really so it could be her
Haha, True. And the eye patch girl did whisk out a blade
She might as well be the first to go


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
I feel like Shioi will survive. I dunno. she feels like she’ll live for now.
A red herring, I feel.
A wonderful character that’ll help blind viewers for the ultimate swerve.
But anything could happen, really.
I just love doing dumb predictions, lol
The show is not in a hurry to kill people though, I notice.


Leap
(ノ◇≦)
Coma is the way to go.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Oh, also, Aya forgot her kitten. She didn’t yell revenge for it.


Leap
(;^o^ヽ)
it wasn’t Sarina that offed it though so maybe she spared her that (xD)


Keiko
(・o・。)
True.
Maybe because the person that killed her kitten died the same way.


TPAB
( *゚ロ゚)
Oh snap!
Yeah, kitten was already avenged.
OK, I’m good.



Leap
(^_^)
Stand up to your bullies, kids — ideally behind a magical protective barrier


Keiko
o(≧∇≦o)
That’s a life lesson, lol


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
The show is prepping her up to be the main character, I feel
Which is why I think blond girl might actually go


Leap
;;(^o^ )
…She literally is the main character, but I think I get what you’re getting at


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Nana is the main character


Keiko
ヾ(・ω・。)シ
I see what you mean.
Maybe that would giver her incentive to make a move or something.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
At least be more heroic and smarter.


Leap
(´・×・`)
She’s already smart I believe.
Just needs clearer direction.


TPAB
( ¬_¬)
She wasted so many hearts though.
Sarina learned her weapon quicker.


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
True. She’s not very good with shooting yet.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
She was in dire straits.


TPAB
( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )
Didn’t even think to teleport out.


Leap
(꒪⌓꒪)
I thought she was gonna do it this time really.
But I guess aiming a gun at yourself is still too much for her now, lol


Keiko
(・o・。)
Aya’s plan was to protect Yatsumura so she didn’t bother to think of teleporting away.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
She actually could’ve saved Blonde Girl early with a teleport out.
But yeah, it was needed for the plot.
The fight was still exciting though, but mostly thanks to Sarina, the beautiful sociopath.
Empathy not found, lol


Leap
ヾ(・ω・。)シ
Nah, she cares now, haha


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
She’s like a sociopathic tsundere now.
‘It’s not like i want to kill you or anything, baka’


Leap
;;(^o^ )
I think that covered pretty much everything right?


TPAB
( ° o°)!
Last one, “Fake” as the next episode title.
Any thoughts?


Leap
w(°o°)w
Tugh one… I’d wager it’s stick related


TPAB
o(^▽^)o
I ask cause I have zero idea, lol. hypes me oup for the next though (xD)


Keiko
“(._.(˙ ¯ ˙ )
Same.
I have no clue what it’s about but it looks interesting.


Leap
(^_^)
We ready with ratings?
9 for me


Keiko
(≧∇≦*)
Yeah I think we’ve covered everything now yep.
I’ll give it an 8.


TPAB
(✿´ ꒳ ` )
Yeah, solid 8.
Maybe even 8.5 because Sarina is awesome.


Leap
;;(^o^ )
Fair enough.
MHA then!


Keiko
d(^-^b)
Yeah, Let’s go!


Aaaaand we’re now caught up! I can now finally ask you guys; what do you think of Mahou Shoujo Site so far? Is it really starting to get good? Or are we just thirsty for anything halfway decent because Devils Line is such a palette cleanser (like, in a bad way xD). Lemme know your thoughts in the comments section below.

After that, do drop by our other T(a)LKs as well!

Catch our discussion on Boku no Hero Academia Episode 5 over at TPAB’s, as I dare you to take a shot each time you spot a mild spoiler from yours truly.

Once your pleasantly drunk from the above, read our back and forth about Devils Line’s fifth episode on Keiko’s Blog. Trust me, the alcohol helps.
