Side Story

Costume Stories


Powers and Abilities

Her innate ability is known as "optical camouflage" a light based magic, where she manipulates the light around her to hide herself or objects she desires hidden allowing her to basically be invisible. She is also capable of enhancing her eyesight, allowing her zoom in on far away locations. In addition to this, Mabayu can move while time is frozen and is also able to remember previous time loops. Due to her wish, Mabayu has the power to see the future of whoever she sees into their eyes (which is, curiously, an ability shared by her mother previously). However, her other main ability is to erase memories which is a more direct result of her wish - by imagining the memory as a film being cut, she can remove memories of an event from someone, like erasing Nagisa Momoe's memory of her witch eating Mami Tomoe and later killing Kyoko Sakura.

Mabayu does share some Coordinator capabilities, being a Void type, having poor fighting skills and being able to see other magical girls memories similar to a coordinator could when going through a tune up.


  • Her given name (まばゆ) is contained in the phrase 'mabayui' (まばゆい), meaning "dazzling", "glaring", or "beautiful".
  • Her surname is comprised of the kanji (愛), meaning "love", and (生), meaning "raw", "unrefined", "pure", or "undefiled", as well as "life" or "living".


  • The art on her "Next☆Actor" memoria, illustrated by PAPA, is a direct reference to the oil painting series Napoleon Crossing the Alps by Jacques-Louis David.
  • Her design bears similarities to the design and motifs of Walpurgisnacht, leading some to believe she may be the Magical Girl whose Witch ultimately became the catalyst for Walpurgisnacht’s existence.
    • Her green hair, film strip motif used in her teaser trailer, and apparent ability to recall information across Homura Akemi's rewindings of time have also given rise to speculation that she may instead be Itzli, originally implied to be the Witch of an alien Magical Girl not from Earth, or that Itzli's Magical Girl backstory has been repurposed for Mabayu and/or Walpurgisnacht.
      • The theory of her being Itzli was further theorized due to Itzlis barrier being a grand theatre, and her appearing in film reels.
    • Mabayu also shares elements with the Witch Kirsten H.N Elly, due to the concept of boxing memories (With Mabayu's ability to cut memories), Screens (referencing mabayu's love for movies), and both their "wishes" relating to removing a Memory.
  • She wears a golden hairpin that resembles the blades of scissors, like her weapon, or, appropriately, the hands of a clock.
  • Mabayu's artwork often contains inconsistencies in her hat, which is sometimes depicted as a crown revealing her head, or as an actual cap. The correct depiction remains a topic of debate.
  • She shares her voice actress with Oriko Mikuni.
  • She works in a café named Récompense (lit. 'repay' or 'reward' in French), owned by her aunt and legal guardian Sakie Aki. Her aunt is trying to pet a black stray cat named Amy.[1]
  • She is a cinephile (someone who is obsessed with movies). Perhaps in a fourth-wall breaking element of this, her transformation video features various clips of the original anime, like:

Madoka Kaname (Scene 0 ver.)

  • The window Mabayu is looking through connects to the room Madoka is swinging in. Mabayu is first seen briefly in Madoka's video through this window.
  • She is seen in the Holy Quintet group shot of them floating. While Madoka's background features colorful circles, Mabayu's is completely black.

Homura Akemi (Scene 0 ver.)

  • In Mabayu's transformation sequence, Homura can be seen stopping and starting time, coherently affecting time in Mabayu's transformation
  • A glimpse of Homura's shadow running during these time stops

Kyoko Sakura (Scene 0 ver.)

  • In Kyoko's transformation sequence, we can catch a glimpse of Mabayu running down an alley as if spying on Kyoko.
  • She is absent from the floating scene with the other girls.

Sayaka Miki (Scene 0 ver.)

  • Mabayu appears to be absent in Sayaka's transformation.
    • However, Sayaka appears in a theatre very similar to that of Itzli's barrier.
    • She also appears in café Récompense, where Mabayu works.

Mami Tomoe (Scene 0 ver.)

  • Mabayu, Sayaka, and Madoka all appear in Mami's transformation, walking to school.
    • Mabayu also appears in a film in Mami's transformation.

Many layers of regrets and wistful feelings that are engraved by redoing the encounter.
