Magia Record Main Story Chapter 8 Part 2
Tsuruno Yui arrives at the restaurant that Felicia Mitsuki is in. Tsuruno notices Felicia is crying, and Felicia explains that she can't make the other magical girls understand what she is saying. Tsuruno demands that Akira Shinobu, Nanaka Tokiwa, and Hazuki Yusa explain what they did to Felicia, but they just say they tried to ask for an explanation of the current events from Felicia. Tsuruno says she'll explain. Felicia worries that if everyone relies on Tsuruno too much she'll become a rumor again. Tsuruno says they should play to each other's strengths.
After giving an abbreviated explanation, Akira says the situation is on a scale she can't deal with. Nanaka says that she's not very convinced by the Wings of Magius plan. Tsuruno admits she's only explaining part of it and says they'll explain the rest at Mitama Yakumo's place. Suddenly, Emiri Kisaki arrives, along with Meiyui Chun. Almost immediately afterward, Konoha Shizumi and Ayame Mikuri arrive as well. Ayame asks if Felicia was running from the robed magical girls too. Felicia protests, but Tsuruno calms her down. Nanaka suggests everyone leave the restaurant before they're kicked out.
Tsuruno and Felicia send the other girls to Mitama's. Tsuruno says she'll stay behind because she senses another magical girl. Suddenly, Tsuruno and Felicia sense Shizuku Hozumi.
Tracking down Shizuku, Tsuruno and Felicia see her attacked by Feathers. The two jump in and attack.
After driving the Feathers away, the girls deduce they attacked Shizuku after she left a witch barrier. They purify Shizuku's Soul Gem, but she is still horribly injured. The girls decide to go back to Mitama's. Shizuku explains that after the first time she met the girls' team, she continued working for the Wings of Magius. Shizuku tried to become a Black Feather, but ran away before they were all taken by a Rumor. Shizuku apologizes.
Mitama thinks her place is looking like a field hospital. Suddenly, Tsuruno and Felicia arrive with Shizuku. Ayaka Mariko is horrified to see her friend and asks if it happened after Shizuku contacted her. Mitama thinks Shizuku won't get better any time soon, but she should be fine just sleeping. Ayaka says she was surprised, she couldn't think of a joke. Mitama talks to Momoko Togame and says they just need to wait for Yachiyo Nanami and Kanagi Izumi to arrive. Momoko apologizes for putting everything on Mitama, but Mitama says she feels like she's paying Momoko back for hunting familiars and witches for her.
Almost every magical girl has gathered in Mitama's place, and they start asking for answers. Tsuruno and Felicia wonder where Yachiyo is. Ayaka said she saw Yachiyo at a heliport. Felicia and Tsuruno say they need to go help her. Rena Minami says they still need to do an explanation, but the two girls say Mitama and Momoko's group can handle it. Mitama begins the explanation, saying that she will have to say things the other girls won't want to hear. She suggests anyone who's too afraid should just leave.
Mitama says the Wings of Magius formed a few months ago, before witches and magical girls began to gather in Kamihama. She summarizes the events that Iroha's group encountered, explaining Rumors, the truth about witches, and the goals of Wings of Magius. Mitama says that Magius is willing to harm their own members, and if Iroha Tamaki didn't intervene earlier, everyone's families could have been killed.
Having pursued a Black Feather to the helipad, Kanagi knocks the magical girl down. More Black Feathers appear. Yachiyo arrives to hold them off, and tells Kanagi to read the mind of the Black Feather.
As Kanagi uses her magic, there is a flash of red. She describes her experience as "madness" and says she can't see into the Feather's mind. Suddenly Holy Mami arrives and says the more Kanagi reads, the more she suffers. Mami says she's surprised Magius never recruited Kanagi, and that she's working with Yachiyo. Mami asks how the Feathers were doing, saying that they were granted a "baptism" so they could act without hesitation. Mami asks the girls if they want to join. Kanagi says Mami is uttering nonsense, and Yachiyo agrees. Mami calls them pitiful. Yachiyo says they pity her. Kanagi says they're already undermining Magius's plan.
Mami attacks, saying that if Yachiyo and Kanagi vanished everything should quiet down. More Feathers appear, along with a brainwashed Tsukuyo Amane and Tsukasa Amane. Mami says she'll feed the girls to "Eve" to release all magical girls. Kanagi says she'll take Mami and tells Yachiyo to go after the Amanes.
Yachiyo tries to reach out to the sisters, but they are unable to listen. Kanagi fights off more Feathers before aiming towards Mami. Kanagi attempts to read Mami's mind, and then says she'll force Mami into submission. However, Mami is able to fight her off. Kanagi is pushed to Yachiyo, who thinks Mami's power is being enhanced by a Rumor. Kanagi asks if Mami is human, explaining she lost "the background" to her mind. Kanagi says even the most pure feelings have a motivation attached, but all she saw in Mami's mind is pride for saving magical girls, and the intent to complete Magius's plan. She compares Mami's mind to a "plain painted over black". Mami says it's hopeless to try and agitate her. Yachiyo says they're surrounded.
At their base in "Hotel Fendt Hope Chapel", Touka Satomi gives a speech to the Feathers, saying that release will occur soon. Nemu Hiiragi tells the Feathers they must kill all the magical girls of Kamihama before they become obstacles, saying they can't sacrifice lives for the sake of sentimental feelings. Nemu says she has granted the Feathers the power to kill without hesitation. There is a flash, and Nemu says they used one more life. Alina Gray tells Mami she's leaving it to her and says she can use Alina's witch. At this point, the Black Feathers are brainwashed. The Rumor creature explains "The Rumor of the Reception Pendant", which was used to brainwash the Black Feathers.
At Mitama's place, the magical girls react to Mitama's revelations. Mitama explains the concept of doppels, and how they stop magical girls from becoming witches in Kamihama. Momoko says that she knows the other girls are confused, but in the face of the current situation they had to tell them. She says that the girls are free to back Magius if they want, and apologizes for getting everyone involved. Nanaka says there's no need for an apology and asks Momoko if her side has an alternative to freeing magical girls from becoming witches. Momoko says they'll think about it after everything is over.
Nanaka calls it irresponsible, but Momoko says if everyone thinks together they could come up with something. Meiyui says it will fail if they disagree, and calls Momoko's plan an ideal. Momoko says if they don't talk about ideals, they won't have anything to aim for. In a corner, Ren Isuzu thinks that if she doesn't find an ideal, she'll just become a witch. She decides to aim for a better future. Meanwhile, Hazuki points out the Azalea House might close if the situation continues. Hazuki, Konoha and Ayame agree the Azalea House is more important than release. Emiri then suggests that they should go and take the fight to the Feathers. Nanaka agrees, saying the situation could affect her family's flower arranging school, and Kako Natsume's family's bookstore.
Several magical girls start saying they agree to help out Iroha's side and fight Magius. Momoko asks the girls who want to fight to come with her.
Felicia and Tsuruno run to Central Ward, and sense Yachiyo, Kanagi, and Mami. Feathers spot them, and the girls attack them.
Momoko and her allies reach Central Ward and see lots of Feathers heading in a single direction. There are so many magical girls that it's impossible to sense Yachiyo or Kanagi. The girls decide to follow the Feathers.
Yachiyo and Kanagi decide to retreat, but are suddenly reinforced by Tsuruno and Felicia. Suddenly, a Black Feather begins to act normally and says her pendant is gone. Mami tells the Feather she should hurry and go back to the base. Yachiyo tells Kanagi to read the Feather's mind while she and the others hold off Mami and the Feathers.
Yachiyo says she can't understand Mami's action. Mami agrees. The two exchange blows. The Amane sisters go after Kanagi, but she counters. Kanagi reveals she read the mind of the Feather and says that they need to take the Feather's pendants off. Felicia attacks a Feather and breaks her pendant, causing a Rumor to show up. Yachiyo tells Felicia to fight off the Feathers, Tsuruno to take on the Rumor, and Kanagi to fight the Amanes. Yachiyo continues fighting Mami.
Tsuruno successfully destroys the Rumor, turning the Feathers and Amanes back to normal. Yachiyo and the others tell Mami her plan has failed, but she just laughs. Suddenly the city's lights turn red. Mami says everything was simple a distraction so they could take over the city's power and airwaves. Mami explains the reason for this is to call Walpurgis Night.
Inside a radio observatory, the Magius leaders listen to Walpurgis Night's laughter. Touka says it's the same voice they heard when they observed the Incubators. Nemu says the primary cell towers in Kamihama have been surprised, and all the radio waves have been converted to a frequency of light only witches can see. Nemu says witches will see Kamihama as a utopia where everyone is free from all troubles, where everyone can get what they want...and yet, no-one is happy. Touka says they'll emit radio waves to stimulate Walpurgis Night, using a frequency normally used to search for alien life. Touka believes the frequency can reach Walpurgis Night's Grief Seed, and leave impressions on its mind, drawing it to Kamihama.
Felicia asks what Walpurgis Night is. Tsuruno explains it's a legend among magical girls of an extremely powerful witch. Mami says that Walpurgis will ensure Eve hatches and it is already heading for Kamihanma. Suddenly more Feathers arrive. The girls think they won't be able to take them. Yachiyo thinks they have no choice but to try and remove the Rumor from Mami. As the others hold off the Feathers, Yachiyo and Mami duel.
The Amane sisters assist the Feathers, incapacitating Kanagi. Yachiyo and Mami continue to fight. Suddenly, Yachiyo heard voices (implied to be Kanae Yukino and Mel Anna). Suddenly she feels a new magic in her. Mami summons her doppel. Yachiyo suddenly disappears and attacks Mami from behind. Mami asks how she did that. Yachiyo admits she doesn't know. Mami summons many, many muskets. Yachiyo counters with the same number of spears. The two girls launch their attack.
In her own mind, Mami Tomoe wonders what she has been living for after she learned the truth about witches. She feels she has to do something for Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki. She thought Magius had the answers, but finds she can't accept what they were doing. Mami tries to understand why she accepted them in the first place. An image of Holy Mami is seen, as someone begs not be erased. Then it begs to be erased if "this is going to happen". Back in reality, Mami suddenly returns to normal.
Having seen Mami's thoughts as a vision, Yachiyo mutters that this is how Mami truly feels. Mami says she really was part of the Rumor. Yachiyo said she could remove it when their hearts connected. Yachiyo explains she still felt Mami had some of her conscience remaining, and also felt like she did about wanting to save everyone. Yachiyo wonders if they understood each other simply because both of them didn't expect to understand each other. Mami says that's just wordplay. She thanks Yachiyo and collapses.
Suddenly Mami's costume reanimates as a Rumor, which constantly laughs. The Feathers and Amanes announce they will still continue fighting. Yachiyo, Tsuruno, Felicia, and Kanagi think they won't be able to make it. Suddenly Momoko arrives, with the magical girls that came with them from Mitama's place. The Amanes are told by the other Feathers to report back to Magius. The magical girls all join the fight.
With the help of Momoko and the others, the Rumor is destroyed. Kanagi tells Rena she is in her debt. Rena gives Kanagi a Grief Seed, and her reaction causes Kanagi to remark Rena is a tsundere. Everyone else also purifies their Soul Gems. Afterwards, the girls look at the unconscious Mami. Yachiyo says it must have been hard for her. Kanagi says she was just like a middle schooler. Tsuruno says they need to find Iroha. Yachiyo asks if the Feathers have been dealt with, and Momoko says the other magical girls reported they were. Nanaka and Akira offer to take Mami to Mitama's, saying they know her already.
Rika Ayano wonders if becoming a witch will be a punishment for her. She apologizes to Ren for stopping her. Aimi Eri wonders how she can confess to her crush now. Kokoro Awane tells her it's alright, and says she thinks she made the right choice. Kokoro believes if she rejected Kyubey's contract she would have been killed by a witch the next day. She tells Aimi she should still be happy. Ren tells Rika that just meeting her made being a magical girl worth it. Rika agrees. Elsewhere, Ayaka apologizes to Shizuku, who begins to awaken.
Mitama notices the magical girls have calmed down. Mitama thinks she broke her neutrality, but then admits she was never neutral and was in fact double crossing Iroha. She wonders if Kanagi noticed. Mitama thinks Kamihama hasn't been kind her to her or Kanagi, but the people in it have been just a bit nicer than they thought. Mitama says she needs to step up.
Iroha and Sana 1
Iroha and Sana Futaba head to a forest in Kitayou Ward. When they go to where Iroha remembered the Rumor of the Ten Thousand Year Cherry Blossom was, Iroha sees a place where Black Feathers are coming and going. Earlier, Yachiyo asked Sana to help protect Iroha. Sana says she'll have to make sure Iroha is happy, to make up betraying her kindness when she was brainwashed. Sana watches until all the Feathers have left. Sana lets Iroha know, and they decide to enter the Rumor. Sana asks if they could hold hands, so she can make Iroha invisible if she has to. Iroha agrees. The girls enter the Rumor's barrier, which is a sunny field with a large cherry blossom tree and four empty chairs. The girls go to look around and stumble upon Touka and Nemu.
Iroha and Sana 2
Touka and Nemu are shocked to see Iroha and Sana there. Touka asks if Nemu spread the Rumor, but Nemu denies it. Iroha explains she knew where the Rumor was because she came up with it. Nemu says she came up with all the Rumors. Iroha says they didn't erase the Rumor because they couldn't. Touka throws a tantrum and says that she'll just erase Iroha and Sana. The four girls fight. Iroha says she remembered something only Touka and Nemu would know. Touka says even if they forgot something, it has nothing to do with releasing magical girls, and that even if she did have a friend she forgot, it wouldn't change her mind. Touka launches an attack with the energy she's gathered, but is blocked by Sana.
Iroha and Sana 3
Sana collapses. Touka admits she's surprised, but says Sana can't repeat that trick. Iroha asks them not to involve Sana. Touka says Sana is involved because she's protecting Iroha, but Nemu points out Sana can barely move anyway. Touka says they'll feed Sana to Eve after dealing with Iroha. Nemu and Touka still don't believe anything Iroha says. Iroha says she'll prove them wrong and recites the Rumor of the Ten Thousand Year Cherry Blossom, a giant tree that will bloom when four girls reunite after three of them leave the hospital. Iroha says the four girls are herself, Touka, Nemu and Ui Tamaki, and that Touka and Nemu can't erase the Rumor because they forgot Iroha and Ui.
Touka asks Iroha if she has any proof. Nemu says Kanagi could have just read someone's mind, and she claims the four girls in the Rumor were all fictional people. Iroha thinks back to how the small Kyubey helped her remember Ui, and asks if he can help. Iroha shows the girls the small Kyubey and asks them to hug it. She throws him at Touka, who says he'll dirty her clothes and smacks him away. It rolls in front of Nemu, who calls his paws filthy and kicks him away. Nemu said they touched the small Kyubey before he met Iroha and nothing happened. Touka gathers magic to launch an attack. Iroha begs them to remember.
Iroha and Sana 4
The attack is blocked by a girl with long pink hair and a white dress. The girl turns out to be the manifestation of the Rumor. The Rumor explains that everything Iroha said is true. Nemu and Touka are shocked. Iroha says the girls also forgot they came up with the Rumors in the hospital with Ui. Touka says she doesn't remember clearly, but there had to have been two other people. Nemu tells Touka to calm down, and admits they have to listen to what Iroha says. Iroha explains that in the hospital, Ui, Touka and Nemu played cards, read stories, watched TV, and chatted and fought all the time. However, one day they took an interest in Kamihama.
Iroha and Sana 5
Iroha says it began with a big map of Kamihama. In a flashback, Ui tells Iroha they asked for it from their doctor so they can write things about Kamihama on it. The girls explain that since they're cooped up in the hospital, they don't know too much about the city they're in. Ui says that after they had a class on society, the girls decided to record all the spots of Kamihama that they hear from people, so they can visit them when they get better. They asks Iroha what she knows about Kamihama, but Iroha says she doesn't live there.
Ui, Touka and Nemu went to people in the hospital and asked them for spots they recommended in Kamihama. They would add these spots to their map. Before anyone knew it, the map was filled with pins and photographs. However, the girls began to run out of stories.
Iroha and Sana 6
One day, Ui asked Iroha to bring her a sketchbook. Ui says that they heard so much about places in Kamihama, that they want to think about what might be in Kamiahama. Iroha asks if they're making a fantasy town. Ui says that when she filled the map of Kamihama it made her feel like she wanted to work harder to get better. Nemu says what they did was change how they perceived their surroundings, and so now they're going to try writing their own imaginary Kamihama. Ui says it will be their farewell letter to the future. The girls then started to imagine urban stories and legends.
It began in the hospital, when Nemu said there was a way to see ghosts. Touka calls it unscientific. Iroha tries it out, but Ui tells her to stop, saying they only check with each other afterwards. The girls then made up rumors that occurred throughout Kamihama. Touka says she heard about a rule of breaking up friendship. Ui comes up with a rumor where you meet someone you want to marry at Mizuna Shrine. Nemu imagines a radio world, with data about an anonymous person. Touka and Nemu tells Ui to draw pictures. Ui draws the Breakup Staircase, Awaiters' Horse, and Anonymous AI Rumors. These pictures became the start of a new map. Eventually, the girls ask Iroha to come up with a story of her own, and she came up with the Ten Thousand Year Cherry Blossom.
Iroha and Sana 7
In the present, Nemu says her memories are different, but admits she understands Iroha. However, she says she cannot stop their plan. Touka says it still seems like Iroha is talking about someone else, and suggests erasing the Rumor. The Rumor says it can't fight them, but can still protect Iroha. Sana gets up and says she can still fight. The girls fight. Nemu apologizes to the Rumor, and says she will erase her. Touka prepares another attack, which is blocked by Sana. Touka attacks again but is deflected by Alina. Touka asks why Alina saved her. Alina says it's obvious.
Alina then attacks and knocks out Iroha. Alina says it would be better to feed Iroha to Eve. Alina explains that she met Touka and Nemu at the hospital, and thinks Iroha might say something interesting if they feed her to Eve. Touka says she doesn't care, but Nemu admits she's interested. Touka says they should use the remaining Feathers to hatch Eve. Alina says they need to deal with Sana, but she has disappeared. Touka asks the Rumor if they can just take Iroha away. The Rumor says she can't do anything about that. The girls head to Hotel Fendt Hope. Touka says without Iroha, Yachiyo and her friends will suffer.
After the others leave, Sana reappears. Sana asks the Rumor to wait for her friends to arrive. The Rumor asks if that's necessary to complete her Rumor. Sana says it is. The Rumor says she understands. Sana leaves, following the Magius.
As Yachiyo's group and Momoko's team head to Kitayou, Yachiyo explains what she learns from Mami. Momoko is shocked to learn Magius called Walpurgis. Yachiyo says they need to find Iroha and Sana. Suddenly the girls are attacked by Feathers. Mitama arrives and says to leave it to her. Yachiyo is surprised Mitamam can fight. Mitama says she only figured out how recently. Mitama fights off the Feathers while the others leave.
Yachiyo's group head into the Rumor of the Ten Thousand Year Cherry Blossom's barrier. However, they can't find Iroha. Suddenly the Rumor appears and explains what happened. Kanagi says at least Iroha and Sana are alright, and asks where Fendt Hope is. The Rumor points out the direction. Mitama enters the barrier and expresses amazement. She says that she took care of the Feathers. Kanagi asks why Mitama came, and Mitama says she has something to tell them.
Iroha is imprisoned into a cell in Femothope, and is separated from her Soul Gem. When she awakens, she asks the small Kyubey if he's alright. The small Kyubey starts crying. Iroha says not to be sad, because she hasn't given up. Touka appears, and asks Iroha if she hears Walpurgis Night's laughter. Iroha does. Touka explain her plan to Iroha, who says Kamihama will be trouble. Touka says that it won't matter to Iroha since she'll just be fodder.
Mitama explains that in the past she made a deal with Magius. In exchange for loaning Mitama the place to sell her services and ensuring her neutrality, Mitama would pay Magius in Grief Seeds. Mitama says they told her about their plan to lure in Walpurgis, and told Mitama they didn't need her support anymore. Kanagi says it's just business, but Rena is angry that Mitama directly helped their plans. Momoko asks if Mitama was only pretending not to fight. Kanagi says that part was true, and the only reason Mitama learned to fight is because Kanagi helped her practice.
Mitama says she broke her neutrality to save her customers. Yachiyo says she has a lot she wants to say, but it isn't the time. Felicia thinks that Mifuyu Azusa is in trouble, and says she wants to save Mifuyu in exchange for helping her before. Yachiyo asks Mitama to tell them about herself when this is over. Mitama agrees, and says she'll stand guard in the barrier while the others go to fight Magius.
Elsewhere, the Amanes bemoan that they're going to be made into food. Mifuyu appears and tells them to calm down. The Amanes ask why Mifuyu is being punished also. Mifuyu says she opposed Magius too much. The Amanes find their Soul Gems were taken. Mifuyu says if they move too far, they'll break the link between their Soul Gems and bodies. In another place, Alina says the Eve is finally hatching. Touka and Alina asks Nemu to make a Rumor to turn the Feathers into energy. Nemu attempts to do so, but collapses. Nemu isn't even able to speak properly. Alina thinks Nemu used too much of her life. Back in the Rumor's barrier, Yachiyo thinks there will still be problems even if they defeat Magius. A storm moves into Kamihama...
Mami sees images of Madoka, Sayaka and Homura Akemi in Mitama's place. Mami apologizes to them for her actions, and begs her forgiveness. Mami believes she can think calmly, and mentally asks to fight alongside her friends once more. Mami suddenly awakens and tells Madoka, Sayaka, and Homura that she's fine.
