|Spirit Enhancement Data|
A magical girl who is trying to create a world without Witches. The daughter, and patient, of the director of the Satomi Medical Center, Touka is an astrophysics prodigy. Surrounded by a wall of gadgets and devices, she continues to research her one dream...to know everything about the universe.
The Doppel of daydreaming. Its form is a Match Seller. The master of this emotion desires more power even after becoming a Magical Girl, in order to achieve more wishes. This Doppel divides its master's lifespan up into matches, and grants a "What if" wish whenever a match is lit. When the Doppel runs out of matches, the master's life is over. It is very powerful, but similar to the Doppel of Dying Wishes, it mustn't be abused, for it sacrifices one's own lifespan.

The side story begins with a retelling of Magius' initial influence on Kamihama: Namely, the fact Kyubey can no longer enter it thanks to the help of a force field surrounding the entire area. Touka, Nemu, Alina and Mifuyu discusss the recent arrival of the Amane Sisters into the team, and realize that merely 6 members is far from sufficient to gather enough energy to lead their project to fruition.
This is when Alina suggests that Mifuyu be in charge of the recruitment, due to her status as veteran. However, Mifuyu refuses: If she begins recruiting girls inside of Kamihama, there may be confusion about her sudden reappearance in the Western sections, and Yachiyo might find her; If she begins looking outside of the city, nobody will listen to her since she's a stranger outside of Kamihama - which loops them back to the beginning of their problem. Mifuyu suddenly sneezes. She explains that she's been feeling a little sick since she's moved out of her parents' home - something she managed to accomplish thanks to grants bestowed from Touka. The latter asks if she can't just heal herself up with magic, since she's a Magical Girl. Mifuyu says she prefers staying sick, as this is one of the few human things left about herself.
The following day, the three Magius are reunited, but Mifuyu is conspicuously absent. They begin further discussing the problem of recruiting more members. Nemu brings up the harshness of Magical Girls' fate, and the moral implications of the means that they use to attain their goals. Touka mentions that if they also begin recruiting members that don't know about the Witch system, they'll look like a strange cult, further limiting their potential magical girl options.
Touka mentions a discrepancy between supply and demand, which earns her a snarky quip from Nemu. Alina cuts them short before the two can argue further, then directs them back on topic. Touka explains that Mifuyu should take care of recruitment anyways, but in the Eastern wards instead, where she is less known. She then explains that they can extend their potential magical girl pool to girls who simply have a hard time fighting witches. Touka begins praising herself from her genius, but Nemu remarks that putting it in a "come with us if you want to be saved" manner is just making them sound like a cult anyways. As Touka begins reasoning in raw statistics, Nemu laments about the fact it's just the six of them to recruit people around Kamihama.
Alina decides to lead the conversation anyways, focusing on how to enhance the force field and discussing Nemu's rumor creation. Suddenly, Alina receives a message from Mifuyu, informing them that her cold's gotten worse and that she won't be present for today's meeting. Touka is reminded of her illness-induced past, and chastises Mifuyu for not using her magic to heal herself. As Alina is about to send Mifuyu a message back to inform her that she can stay home, Nemu gets the idea of using radio waves to communicate their message in the most efficient way possible such as using e-mail, phone messages, etc. Touka praises Nemu for the idea, and decides to give it a test run.
Later on, Touka sneaks in Mifuyu's living quarters. She finds her asleep and with dinner bought from the convenience store. As Mifuyu groans in discomfort in her sleep, however, Touka decides to try and help her, bringing back a cold, humid towel to apply to her forehead. Touka is surprised that she's now caring for someone, but Mifuyu wakes up shortly after. Mifuyu offers Touka tea despite the former's sickness, but Touka refuses, demanding that she rest up. However, since Mifuyu's awake, Touka decides to use Mifuyu as a guinea pig for the transmission test run, and messages back Nemu to inform her of the situation and launch the experiment. Soon after, Mifuyu begins hearing singing, which makes the experiment a success.
The song is revealed to be from back when Touka was hospitalized; a nurse would sing it to her often to help her get better. She decided to use this specific song knowing Mifuyu's sickness, in hopes that this'd help her feel better, to which Mifuyu agrees. She quickly deduces that the experiment is actually meant to help with the recruitment of Magical Girls using radio waves. Having found that witches and similar creatures only magical girls can see are tuned to a specific frequency, Touka decided to use this specific wavelength to send a message only magical girls can hear within and beyond Kamihama. Mifuyu praises Touka, and then finds renewed vigor, telling Touka she should be right back on her feet the following day; but Touka asks her not to overwork herself.
Back in the Magius' HQ, with Mifuyu now present, the other Magius have to withstand an irrational bout of anger from Touka. It's revealed that this scene is back from where the Rumor of the Seance Shrine was defeated, and Yachiyo came out of it unscathed. Mifuyu acknowledges the presence of a new ally by Yachiyo's side now, and that they should be more careful. While Nemu suggests creating more rumors, Alina suggests using witches instead due to the similarity between doppels and witches; However, Mifuyu claims that method is too harsh, but Alina retorts that spreading awareness of the truth is their best option. Touka begins explaining that they should create rumors frightening enough to inflict trauma on their victims, which shocks Mifuyu and prompts her to scold Touka, explaining that they will not sacrifice people for the sake of their goals and that as long as Magical Girls aren't in danger of becoming witches, they can take their time.
Nemu, however, sympathizes with Touka's situation, reminding Mifuyu that she uses her own life force to create rumors and that using it on low-quality ones would be a waste. Alina agrees, claiming she cannot turn down an offer to create beautiful art. Mifuyu reiterates her desire not to cause more sacrifices than necessary, but Touka slaps her and goes away.
Mifuyu's objections are putting a stop on Magius' plans, as if they stall out too long, people might eventually figure out what rumors are, and the Feathers may be also caught and spill the beans. Nemu admits, however, that Mifuyu, despite her stalling, has a point, as if they lost sight of their moral standing, their plans would fall into disarray quickly as the Feathers are still people, and might eventually sense danger and defect from the Magius altogether. As a result, Mifuyu represents a tremendous weight in the Magius thanks to her popularity, and should she leave herself, the organization may collapse. A frustrated Touka eventually decides to go cool down elsewhere, as she believes she's not thinking clearly. Nemu expresses her relief over Touka noticing, which upsets the latter, who asks her why she hadn't told her directly in the first place if she knew; to which Nemu replies it'd only have made her angrier.
Back in her room, Touka ponders what she could possibly do to help Mifuyu understand. She compares the magical girl system to a dog-eat-dog world and a "survival of the fittest", and says she's ready to do anything to survive as well.
The next day, in Saint Lilliana Academy, Touka is tasked to do group work, which bores her immensely. A younger classmate asks her to explain division to her, but Touka berates her for failing to grasp a concept so simple to her. The teacher tries to explain Touka that this girl only started studying division, but Touka retorts by saying she knew about it far before her age. She then adds that while people can't grasp concepts as easily as she can, she believes she's clever enough to explain them, which is indirect praise directed at Touka. She finally settles on teaching the girl how to do division.
As the lesson continues, Touka tries explaining the girl about fractions, but the teacher informs her it's currently outside of the program. She settles on remainders instead, and the girl comments about how said remainder looks lonely, separated from the rest of the numbers, which confuses Touka. While trying to keep her calm, Touka tells the girl how numbers don't have feelings and that it should be fine, but the girl insists that all numbers should get along, and that as group leader, Touka should have a way to figure this out. Touka snaps at this, and angrily reiterates that numbers are merely concepts and that there is no other thing to do with them but to write that down as intended. The girl, however, begins crying, and Touka realizes she's made a mistake.
As the teacher drags her aside and begins scolding her, Touka reiterates that getting rid of the remainder is the only way to have the answer. This statement, however, makes something click in Touka's mind. She decides she's had enough of being patient, and will tell that to Mifuyu once she sees her again.
With a renewed resolve and an unusually foul mood, Touka meets again with Nemu to tell her about her plans to use the radio frequencies to drag in more witches in Kamihama and use more dangerous rumors, as it is the most cost-efficient solution they have before her. Nemu states that Mifuyu won't be pleased with that outcome, but Touka says that as the genius, she gets to decide whatever she wants. Mifuyu incidentally arrives right after, and Touka explains her point of view to her once and for all. She claims that it's necessary for now, in order to make a better future.
Iroha then orders all three girls to stop the videogames and do their homework. Iroha remarks the huge break between classes, and asks if that means they have a lot of homework. Ui replies that they only have one big assignment to do: Self-study. Nemu explains that they have to compile information on a hobby or interest, then make a presentation about that, and those without a hobby can look things up online. Ui asks what Iroha would present, and she answers that she'd talk about cooking and baking, as these are the two topics she knows best. Iroha returns the question, and Ui answers that she's going to look into what people sing in school choirs, while Nemu will do her part on her favorite books, particularly philosophical children's stories.
Iroha guesses that Touka will do her presentation about space, but guesses that she'll do more a full-blown class than a simple presentation; However, she greatly upsets Touka by accident. Iroha quickly apologizes, but Touka says that it's not her fault, but rather something else that happened.
It's explained in another anterior scene that Touka decided against doing her project about space, and rather focus on quantum computers. Ui is a little disappointed, being eager to watch Touka talk about space. The teacher calls Touka, and asks her as well if she'll do something on space. She believes that even if the students might not understand the tricky parts, that she'll do a good job at teaching them and making them interested about the topic. However, Touka refuses, unwilling to share her knowledge as she's worked hard to gather it.
Back in the hospital, Iroha guesses that people would still like to hear Touka talk about space, which disappoints the latter as she realizes everyone is in favor of her talking about space. She still expresses refusal over teaching people about this, as she claims she's already had too much stolen from her. She tearfully explains that she understands she's bedridden for the rest of her life, and the hospital doesn't allow her to leave because the world is better outside, and that if she experiences it firsthand, she'll never want to come back.
All that Touka knows of the world is the Satomi Medical Center. She only gets her knowledge of the outside world through internet. She reminisces her father, who never misses a chance to remind her how proud he is of her and her ability to learn so quickly. He informs that Touka should use her smarts to help the rest of the community around her. Touka is worried at the notion of "giving back", but her father tells her that he'll gift her anything she wants if she complies. She asks about living under the same roof as her parents, about finally being free. However, her father cannot gift her that, as she's still very sick and needs to remain at the hospital for further treatment. Touka therefore decides to never give back anything to anyone, as anything she ever gave out to people, she was never given anything back in return.
Touka muses about outer space, the only world that ever gave her anything. She admired the cosmos for its limitless freedom and its endless ability to be discovered over and over. She got to learn things only she knew, which is why outer space is so important to her. Suddenly, she feels a sharp pain in her back which immobilizes her.
Later on, a sleeping Touka is awoken by the same lullaby she used to transmit the radio waves in the present. It's revealed that the 'nurse' who used to sing this song to her is no one other than Iroha herself. Touka asks what Iroha is doing here, and Iroha offers her a present, which is an apple pie she baked herself. Iroha was feeling bad after offending Touka the other day, which is why she made that apple pie for her. Touka laments about how she cannot eat it, but Iroha reassures her that she obtained her father's guidance to prepare it without any ingredient that she cannot eat. Touka taste-tests it, and finds that the pie is incredibly delicious.
Iroha explains that she could teach Touka little thing after little thing to make her happy like this. In the same fashion, she requests that Touka share her knowledge about outer space one more time, to make them just as happy. Iroha tries the pie out, and is surprised at the taste herself. Touka agrees.
The next day, Touka arrives late to class. However, she's brought a lot of classroom materials for everyone. If they want to learn about space, she claims that she should start with constellations first. She then tells Ui that her older sister Iroha is much like the Beta Pegasi. However, she doesn't give Ui an explanation, telling Ui to go look it up herself.

Touka first appears in Iroha's flashbacks, where she, Ui Tamaki and Nemu Hiiragi are seen staying in the hospital. She seems to be friends with both of them, however she fights with Nemu a lot, making up shortly after.
Touka reappears in Chapter 6, confirming her status as one of the Magius. She tells the girls the truth about Soul Gems, Witches, and Doppels, overseeing the brainwashing of Tsuruno, Felicia and Sana as part of their forced induction into the Wings of Magius. She giggles as Iroha begs her to let Tsuruno, Sana and Felicia go, and taunts her as she finds the idea preposterous.
She is subsequently present in Chapter 7, during the raid on Chelation Land as Iroha and her allies attempt to save Tsuruno and stop the Rumor from consuming large amounts of the city's human populace, as it was intended by the Magius to do.
In the following chapters, Touka continues her role as a villain, working with her fellow Magius to further their plan, as Iroha and her allies try to stop them.
By Chapter 10, Touka has realized that Eve is in fact Ui and helps Iroha and the others to rescue Ui and stop Eve from destroying the city. She then has the Rumor of the 10,000 year Sakura act as an impartial judge for her and Nemu so they can stand trial for their crimes. They are sentenced to never be allowed to transform into magical girls again upon penalty of death. Though she still believes in Magical Girl supremacy, she declines working with Neo Magius because it would sadden Ui and Iroha.
- The characters of her last name mean "village" (里) and "to see" (見) respectively.
- The characters of her first name mean "light" (灯) and "flower" (花) respectively.
- Her design, along with those of Nemu and Alina, are based around a prison. Her design in particular represents the prison itself, with her dress as the bars.
- Touka makes an appearance in the opening next to Mifuyu Azusa and Alina Gray, all three of whom are part of Wings of Magius.
- Her doppel, Pennen Nolde, bears a striking resemblance to Iroha Tamaki's doppel Giovanna. The reason for this has yet to be explained.
- However, this has been confirmed by the guidebook to be because of Touka being inspired by Iroha to become a magical girl and wishing to save Iroha from the fate of magical girls.
- The guidebook furthermore states that 'the motif is a plague doctor, a Swallow and a match-selling girl.'
- Her doppel name is also a reference to a work of Kenji Miyazawa. For other references to his work, see Kenji Miyazawa and Magia Record.
- Her doppel is a reference to The Little Matchstick Girl by Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen. The story revolves around a dying girls hopes and wishes, seeing one everytime she lights a match. However the match goes out in the cold snow and she loses a bit of her life force which is what Pennen Nolde does to Touka everytime she lights match when she uses it.
- Both her doppel and Nemu's doppel are linked to their owner's lifespans. This is referenced in Pennen Nolde's description.
- Her doppel summons a bright star in the sky that rains down falling stars - Stars are often seen as symbols of hope and falling stars are said in many forms of folklore to grant wishes. However, the falling stars may also represent Touka's waning life as she uses the doppel, as her dreams seem to be unreachable.
- It can also refer to the bully from Night on the Galactic Railroad, Zanelli. In fact, fans expected the doppel to be named Zanelli before its name was revealed.
- In MagiReco Archive Vol. 2, her doppel's name is written incorrectly. Rather than it saying "Pennen Nolde" in runes (PENNEN NOLDE), it instead says "Totentanz" (TOTENTANZ), the name of Mitama's doppel.
