Can you tell us about your magical girl teams?
.+:｡ ( ╯ ✧ ω ✧;;; ヽ)*:・ﾟ✧ OH ANON HOW YOU TEMPT ME SO!! I am weak… I have sooo manyy….
I won’t count the ones that I re-purposed into a different genre, or the stories that fall more strictly into western superhero style with lead female characters/and or are mg twinged but not really full on magical girl genre.
I’m sorry i don’t have many up to date team images for all of them, they’re scattered everywhere. So without further ado!
Bee’s sparknotes original magical girl series guide! (below the cut)
* = tentative/placeholder titles
The Book keepers*: 7 members, 1 mascot. Fantasy in the middle, Amira, is the leader. Queer college kids with a literature theme and the powers of paper and GENRE! These are our early stage outfit designs (courtesy of @dyemelikeasunset ) but there may be updates in the future <3
Starless: Roughly 12 members divided into 2 teams, each with a henshin-mascot. The one above is Vanessa, she’s a leader of one of the teams. Symbiotic alien magical girls! These characters used to be tmm fan characters too. I’ve redesigned the outfits so many times and the story itself isn’t very complete either so it’s just sorta chillin’ now. You can see the other leader Kristyn on Day 4 here, but it’s a bit outdated because she’s a wheelchair user. just imagine her sitting.. orz
Forecasters: 5 members, one mascot (right there!!! ^) Weather theme magical girls with some superhero flavor. An unreleased project that i am focusing on the most offline right now and I’m not ready to share it just yet!!!
The Cosmic Club: 3 members, 1 mentor, possibly a mascot later. Jameela, in the center is the leader! Planetary powers and a “secret friendship club” feeling! a little bit of a mg x cartoon superhero x ppg fusion. They’re new so I don’t have a lot for them though but I REALLY LOVE THEM. I’m currently in the process of designing their MG uniforms!
Cheers*: Team of 7. Leslie aka Lemonade is the leader at the moment… They were my “drink tans” which are like.. OS-Tans, but beverages? that grew a MG flavor over time. All based off a beverage with vaguely associated beverage superpowers. Not sure what I’ll do with them yet…. considering punk roller derby inspo.
TMM Fruit parfait: 5 members, no mascot coz I’m lazy. a tokyo mew mew fan character team! they’re college age now, but they don’t have a story coz it’s just for fun. They’re all specifically fruit names though. I do have ideas for an original MG AU if I ever wanted to write something with these guys though!
TMM Citron Bonbon: 5 members, 5 mascots (that I still haven’t drawn…) Cutie you see here is Mew Grapefruit, the leader! another tmm fan team, they’re all citrus foods and have rodent dna becuase those are my favorite things.
Stars of Alola: My Pokemon Sun Team are beach-combing sun-powered magical girls. Ty’s are Moon-powered sentai. they’re all in love probably. No plot, I just like making my teams into gijinkas whenever possible, and it was a fun design challenge. Extremely fond of these guys tho so you’ll probably see them around!!
Designs for teams that haven’t gotten outta the development stages, but i’ll include them here anyways. You never know when inspiration can strike! A lot of them towards the bottom are also collaborated between @dyemelikeasunset and/or @caiterprince for her Magical Girl Academy!
Lilypad Princess*: 3 members, 3 mascots; Susannah (the leader) and her mascot Lily, Ziya and Sunflower, and Georgie and Viola. Susie was originally made for a fun magical girl prompt contest entry and I gave her some friends one day. Currently have a relatively generic flower/element/prince-princess theme. I’m gonna redesign these guys in the future probably, might merge them with my old seasons magical girls prompt I did in 2011 for fun. (bc I’m sorta reusing those characters for something else -rolls eyes-)
Unnamed: Rainbow themed knights… an old team of like 8+ (this one is Canary)… It was shaping up to be a magical academy deal. i don’t know if i’ll hang onto this one tho, because barely any characters were fleshed out and some of them ended up being predecessors for the Forecasters’ characters anyway.
Candyland*: Candy themed magical girls featuring early concept Spearmint from my mgc30. It kind of happened on accident, starting with some homeless candy-theme magical girl designs- I’ve been gradually adding to it and updating the style dramatically since this drawing. I may actually have something to show for this one soon, I just need to design a few more characters!!
Seven Seas: A team of 7 (with 1 mascot) based on mermaids/aquatic powers with @dyemelikeasunset and @caiterprince !!! May or may not have a pirate subtheme 8///|;; Persephone and Eden are on this team! I really wanna finish the art I started in mermay for these guys afdgshsdsg
The Birdwatchers: A very old solo OC that I made for fun caught cait’s eye so we made a cool night-thief inspired bird team for her to go with. Both naf and dye have ocs for this set too we just haven’t designed them yet… also another uniform I need to finalize ;|
Will add/update this as needed!
