Yeah, but for the reasons Hitomi mentioned in the anime. What makes this ship forbidden love isn't that they're both girls in general, but that they're Hitomi and Madoka in particular. Hitomi, return Homura her gf, before she makes you regret it!
@BV I'm half way thru it and it's really good so far! I'd recommend reading it! The translation might not be perfect but the english is plenty good enough imo.
I wonder why they make changes tho from the LN to manga? Some minor changes I noticed didnt seem to make sense like why was the magic test the first time they are learning their spells when in the novel they all already DO and are fairly experienced.. I mean Taylor shoulda only got in the school BECAUSE of her magic ability right? So it doesn't make sense why she is in the super rich school for nobels - that also lets in talented mages- if they hadn't even tested her yet.
@clorox Its not see through- as such. Its just a very thin summer dress. It IS see through when lit brightly from behind.
You see this quite often in anime/manga with summer dressess, and a girl standing at a bright window etc and it revealing her outline clearly. I think the clearness of seeing her underwear is a bit exagerated here.
When you are not wearing it and seeing it lit from in front in a shop it doesn't look transparent. (You can see on page 1 its not transparent on the manaquin).
@Adnegel Except the ending surely?? The bit where she is asking her to be a vasal is SUUPER blatently more than just friend vibes! How momo was reacting and what they were saying etc.. Even the challenege/love letter jokey bit after the credits- how momo reacted seemed more than friends!
I agree most of the show leading up to the end can be seen in friends light- but you can also see it as them just becoming closer and closer- and liking each other more - in whatever capacity.. that can still lead to romance too.
But the end.. It was super blatent imo. For both of them.
And I think many of these images are inspired more from the manga- that goes a lot further than the anime.
@elevown Rereading the web novel and manga chapters, I don't think the test was really about them learning spells at all so much as just testing their magical aptitude and ability. The story doesn't really go into how exactly Rei got into the magic academy in the first place, but I assume her entrance test involved testing whether she was able to do magic period without seeing how strong she was exactly.
^ In this manga its portrayed as like they are just discovering what elements they even are- whereas in the LN this bit was a magic test, but it was clear they already all knew what elements they were and they even have specific spells they know- and are famous for various abilities, AND if Im remembering right, the others knew Rei was a dual user AND had got them both at the max lvl. I think she was kinda famous for it? Like the prince's knew of her?
It also specifically mentions commoners only get in this prestigious school by being good at magic.
BUT- I may be remembering wrong :) Its been a while. Actually I think I will start reading it from the start again!
