Tomoko, your sense of danger is seriously lacking. You're going to get attacked at this rate.

This manga is the answer to the question, "What if Mochi au Lait rewrote that one play from Bloom Into You on a particularly bad day?"

I'd read a 24 chapter manga about that.

So Leopold is a three star now, probably to absolutely no one's surprise. But just where has this sudden boost of power come from? Is it A: An off screen training montage? B: The source of her power changed? Or C: She was a three star from the start hiding her power level?

A really needs no explaining so let's start with my second choice B, and ask ourselves, "Where do these powers really come from?" And I think the answer lies in one of the clear inspirations of this work, Madoka. When Lord threatens Loco for her failure she says she will, "Crush thy wishes." Everyone's powers seems to play into their deepest desires, Loco wants to sing and her powers are all sound based, Alice has a fucked up home life and her very first use of her powers is to play house, Baiser wants to revel in her sexuality. Rather than "accepting power in exchange for a wish", this is a reverse Madoka with "Gaining powers to fulfill wishes." Leopold wanted to be cute, and that's a rather shallow wish bringing forth shallow power. But perhaps her feelings for Baiser has brought about a new stronger wish?

But hey, that's all just speculation, and I'm much more interested in option C: She was always a three star. This sudden power reveal feels very similar to another sudden power reveal of a certain magical girl. A girl Leopold is a direct foil to, who seems to have been at the magical girl business longer than her peers. Back when those two met in the classroom I dealt like their abide jabs at each other was smoke screen for something else, like they already knew each other's secret identities but we're keeping quiet because of some unspoken agreement. So wouldn't it be interesting if Leopold has been at this magical girl business longer than she lets on, perhaps even once as a good guy?

Something seems to be up, the chapter card says it's chapter 18 but this is chapter 17.

Ah, I had a feeling this was the same artist that does all those Skull Girl X Aether Girl.

Oh gods, this gets infinitely worse the longer you look at it. Lancet is much wider at the top than the bottom.

Actually, I think it didn't happen in "reality", but in an illusion created by Utena inside the box created by Alice.

Because at the end, they reappear fully clothed. So it all happened in their minds.

They got mindfucked :)

That's just because no matter what happens to their costume, their normal clothes remain untouched.

Also, illusions like that would be a power neither Baisar or Nero have shown. No, more insidiously, Nero's power is that she forces those inside her doll house to adopt a "role". They could well have been mind controlled to do that, but the role they adopted was close enough to reality that they don't notice.

So I just did a big old re-read of everything, and there are some things I noticed that bear theorizing.

1:The Good and Evil mascots are probably working together. I have 2 major points for this theory. Back when Nero was first introduced we overhear Vena communicating with someone about the time being right to move forward. Unless there is some other party we haven't met yet, which seems unlikely the cast of this manga feels complete where it is, the only person that makes sense is the good guys, as this is the exact opposite of what Vena says to The Lord during the meeting. Second, and possibly more substantial, the barrier devices are made from both the heart and star, a fusion of both sides. This all feeds into my second theory.

2:The natural state of the "Good VS Evil" dynamic is supposed to be harmless. It's all just a fun game of cops and robbers. When an Evil Girl isn't around the monsters the Good Girls face seem to be laughably harmless. When Utena was just starting out Vena certainly pushed her to truly defeat the magical girls, but now that she's stronger, now that defeating the magical girls would probably be easy, he suddenly doesn't seem to care, Utena being true to herself is more important. It's a safe space for the girls to explore and learn about feelings society hasn't allowed them. But now Lord Enorme is about to break that system.

Let's be honest, the others were sent away for Leopard's benefit, Nero LOVES to watch.
