Where were we? Oh yeah. Magical girls in magical robots, battle to death, high school drama, some good fashion and haircuts. Yeah.
Okay, that angry redhead tsundere shows up and blames Ernesta for being a demon. Who is Ernesta?
Anyway, isn’t that girl’s name Shingetsu? I am confused. Apparently, she has completely destroyed the redhead’s household, and she is not impressed. Shingetsu denies all accusations and gracefully stops two very nasty slaps coming her way. Drumroll, please. Meanwhile, some creepy white-haired girlsis trying super-hard to find Mangetsu, but instead wastes her time staring into the mouth of her sister. Gross.
As they’re walking home, Shingetsu explains to Mangetsu how magical families fight and take over each other to survive. It’s basically a savage way of expansion, but Shingetsu presents it as a much more gentle way to stay around. Shingetsu’s response is to cook tonkatsu for her. And she’s not even a good cook… I don’t think I’d eat any sort of chicken made out of the hands of someone I don’t know. The mere image of it horrifies me. Shingetsu doesn’t seem to be paying attention to the food and instead starts talking about Granbelm again. She’s probably trying to get Mangetsu out of this so that she won’t have to, you know. Kill her.
In a flashback, we find out that tsundere redhead and Shingetsu used to be friends as children. I have to say that her family doesn’t look like they’re having a hard time at all; her sister spends time doing gymnastics, her mom looks like she’s been by a personal stylist, and they do ride a limo. So I’m finding it hard to feel sorry for them. They seem like spoiled shits to me. On their way home in the limo, the younger sister spots Shingetsu and seems excited. I’m confused. They call her Ernesta again and the family’s mom runs and hugs her immediately, saying she lost her or something. What’s going on? Shingetsu refuses and walks off, to finally get slapped by tsunderedhead, who we will now call Anna.
In the meantime, Mangetsu’s sister is following around this girl called Nene, who I am guessing is important. She lives on her own and cooks great, so this sounds like a good choice to me. Back in Mangetsu’s house, Shingetsu is showing her how to better control her robot thing. Instead of paying attention, Mangetsu asks Shingetsu personal questions about her relationship with Anna’s family. Mangetsu tries to pep-talk Shingetsu, but it’s not very effective. The white-haired girl is still hanging around looking for Mangetsu. She has a sleeping sister who sings in her sleep but doesn’t move much.
And so we fast forward to the night of the battle. Let’s do this. The girls are ready for the battle and waiting. They all do a little chant, except for Mangetsu. Where is she? The white-haired girl seems to be taking this rather intimately. Mangetsu is in her robot, chatting to Shingetsu over the phone or something. Shingetsu says she wants magic to disappear, so she doesn’t have to fight anymore. Okay. The battle begins. There are lots of neon lights and screaming. The moment the battle starts I am immediately sleepy. The white-haired girl explains her fighting has something to do with her sleeping sister. Whatevs. The fight still goes strong and Shingetsu and Mamgetsu are seriously helping each other. Anna is trying to kill Shingetsu so hard, and then white-haired girl butts in and joins the battle. Okay.
It really is a challenge paying attention to the battles.
Especially if you have no idea what’s going on. But, oh well, nice colors, right?
