So many questions are left unanswered, even though this season is almost at an end. Burning questions like ‘who actually masturbates to this?!’ and ‘why is all this horror going around because of an evil floating tampon?’ If you are waiting for answers, well bruh, it does suck to be you. But do get ready for some more killing and a couple of cool plot twists.
This Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku episode starts just like the first one: a bunch of unknown Magical Girls are fighting a demon who has gone berserk. FAV mentions that its master is dead too. As everyone is bleeding to death, Cranberry gets up and kills him with a strong blow. She seems happy and psychotic as always. Now she is the new master.
Intro plays, which reminds me that I believe Shouta-kun’s not dead. I wonder what is happening with him.
Back to where the previous episode left off, Cranberry is looking for Swim Swim and Tama, who are hiding from her and trying to attack. Swim Swim finally goes all-out yet fails as Cranberry reads her weakness and attacks her with light and sound, managing to affect her liquid form. She then starts having the usual monologue on how awesome and superior she is, approaching Swim Swim who is lying flat on the floor in her human form, that of a young child. While Cranberry is distracted, Tama knocks her on the back, creating a huge hole on her and causing her to explode. Blood rains on Tama. The bitch is dead.
Tama runs to check on Swim Swim. As she admires the youth of her paranoid genius, Swim Swim gets up, picks up her weapon, and cuts her friend’s head off. WHAT. Even though I was somehow expecting it because of the way the scene was directed, my jaw dropped.
We get a really painful flashback on Tama’s life, nothing unexpected there. Constantly undermined by her family because of her lack of talents and of course very depressive, the only person who appreciates her for her kindness of heart is her now dead grandmother. Taken under Ruler’s wing, she feels useful and a part of something for the first time in her life. Her happiness is short lived, after the battling for survival begins.
