Is it possible that Mapycr being Cyrillic letter: МАРУСЯ (Marusia) ? Yorkwoo (talk) 16:01, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Actually, that makes a lot more sense and would explain the backwards R letter. Sondenise (talk) 18:30, 4 April 2022 (UTC)

Digressive information about "Slave of Anima"

Long time no see. I’d like to add an additional information about "Slave of Anima". I guess that it may be too digressive to add them directly to the article. --Mokyubacky (talk) 19:22, 8 April 2022 (UTC)

  • The word "anima" is originally a Latin word with multiple meanings, such as "wind," "the vital principle," and "life." The most famous derivative of "anima" that we know of is "animation." It means "animate + -ion," i.e., "the act of breathing life or soul into something."
    • By the way, there is an interesting interpretation of "Slave of Anima". That is, "Anima" in the Witch name could be exactly "Animation," i.e., a dark humor joke about the poor working environment in the animation production field. In the MADOGATARI exhibition, Inu Curry have been created and exhibited an "animation witch." The name of this witch's minions is "SYACHIKU." Shachiku in Japanese literally means "company livestock," and slangy refers to wage laborers who work very hard under poor working conditions. Also, Slave of anima is placed in a spinning wheel and roasted over a fire from below. There is a Japanese expression "hi-no-kuruma," which refers to a harsh financial situation where makeshift solutions become everyday events (this also shares an origin with Karin's Doppel). It could be a reference to the very tight anime production schedule for Magia Record, and the fact that Slave of anima is a "dog-shaped witch" also makes it possible that this is a self-deprecating joke by Inu Curry (especially since Mr. Doroinu sometimes refers to himself as a "dog").
    • But, of course, there can be other interpretations. The series of allusions mentioned here may indicate that weak (and disadvantaged) megucas such as Kuroe and Kuro are forced to live hand-to-mouth existences (personally, I think this interpretation is more elegant).


Regarding "shachiku", her barrier could be based on the salaryman. There are computer icons and charts similar to what one would find in an office job, and the pig mascot is also dressed as a salaryman. Plus, the other runes in her labyrinth are "deadline" and "accomplish". Homupizza8 (talk) 13:57, 27 May 2022 (UTC)

Is This Page Necessary?

Considering minor Witches in the original anime (such as Uhrmann) got entire pages dedicated to them, and Box Wood had a page long before she was added to the game, is a page compiling anime-exclusive Witches necessary? I understand that in the years since the original anime's release, even the minor Witches got more content through games and such that could fill out their pages, but they were still given individual pages from the start. --Garr9988 (talk) 21:33, 8 April 2022 (UTC)

I would think so. At the moment, these witches have very minimal information about them. Neo Dorothy I think should have her own page, and I may create that page, but for now that's just how it is. I understand what you're saying, though. However, to me this just doesn't seem possible. (This is my first "talk" on this wiki. If I did it wrong, please tell me.) -- PureChaos

Move Alina Eve

Looks like she's not anime-exclusive anymore, should she maybe have her own page now? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 04:07, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, I would say so. Her section has grown enough that it could warrant its own page. Feel free to branch out the Ichizo into its own page as well if you like. Hell, there's enough information for the witches now that we could probably make a page for each one (and just leave the unnamed doppels/witches on this page as a "Minor Doppels/Witches" kind of page.
