Just a random thought but how did they not recognize each other ? It's not like the transformation change them that much from their base form. I can't really believe the magical girls still don't know that Utena and Baiser are the same person, given how they look awfully similar

They mentioned recognition inhibiting magic a few chapters back.

EDIT: Ninja'd.

Now that just sound like convenient magic to justify it.

I don't think I've ever seen it mentioned straight out anywhere besides here and Sailor Nothing, but clearly this must be the usual case, seeing how magical girls are never recognized despite almost always looking the same as usual, just with different clothes.

I think that it's exactly meant to be a joke how nobody ever figures out identities of magical girls despite them looking exactly the same and only changing costumes, which also happens to work like convenient explanation so you won't question it. Also something, something, don't expect a serious explanation in comedy manga.

Mahou Shoujo Spec-Ops Asuka. There again, she went and blew her cover at the first opportunity.

The only time I remember the girls being recognized is Madoka Magica, but we conveniently don't see any normies who know them see them while in cosplay transformed, so we technically don't know for sure if it doesn't apply.

I already made that joke when we first learned that.

Have a little christmas gift! (With some delay). What the characters say after the chapters and a little tankobon bonus at the end ^^ here

So the first volume is only 5 chapter long ? So why on Mangadex, it's up to Ch.7 ?

"Laughed too much"
"My stomach hurts..."

Page 3
"T-that girl..."
"What the hell she was thinking..."

Page 4

"is the best <3"

(Totally normal thing for magical girl to say)

(Read from top to bottom)

Page 5

Panel 1
"Tres Magia are here!"
"Prepare yourself Enormeeta!"

Panel 3
"We won!"
"What the? That was too easy."

Panel 1
"Magia Baiser... Just who she could be?"
"Hmmm..."

Panel 2
I found few meanings for howan sfx and I'm not sure which one is correct here, because I don't really get the joke

Panel 4
"Isn't she totally a mysterious moleman?"
"Huh!?"
"H-how!?"

Page 6

Panel 1
"So it appeared! The evil organization!"
"I, Magia Magenta, will be the one facing you!"

Panel 2
"Kyuun, kyui~n."
"Bibibibibibibi-"

Panel 3
"Kyaa-, oh no!"
"Ugggh... it hurts...!"

Panel 4
"So, rehearsing fighting against Tres Magia?"

Panel 1
"Everyone, it's Enormeeta~"
"Fast, hid somewhere~"

Panel 2
"Leave... that way nobody will see me..."
"It's such a pain, I'll knock it down quickly..."

Panel 3
sfx: stare

Panel 4
"Don't even dare to think I'll forgive you scaring everyone like that!"

Unless I got it wrong, apparently recently her skin is very shiny. I don't really get it either. Maybe her getting turned on by torturing girls makes it to sparkle? Being sadistic is good for skin constitution? Anyway, it's supposed to be recent mysterious thing that happened so.

Like any vigorous physical activity, sex helps improve blood circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen to the skin and other organs. “This boost in circulation is what brightens the complexion and gives your skin that glow,” says Dr. Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and RealSelf contributor “ It also increases your heart rate, which gets the blood flowing.”


This is actually a long runnin' joke in anime, not because they actually had sex but because they had experiences similar to orgasm or with a lot of pleasure.... I've seen it a lot as a gag.

Hey Nevri, can I add your tranlation in the photos description? I'll say you are the one who tranlated it, of course ^^

Idk, the second tome will be released in april but this one has only 5 chapters, yeah.

Talking about her glossy skin, that joke was from the last chapter of the tome :P

Hey Nevri, I also have the Tsuki no Suppin tankobon, do you mind doing the same? At least for the chapters that are already here (the first tankobon has 14) so you won't get spoiled hahaha
