If I’m being completely honest, if I was given the chance to be a magical girl I would probably take it, if I was told what the circumstances were. I’ll become a witch eventually? Sold. I’ll be thrown in a magical girl death match? Well, It’ll be fun while it lasts. I’m saving your kingdom with virtually no benefit to me? Sure, why not? Just tell me the circumstances and I would probably say yes because I am stupid.
found & finished a really old sketch of the whole team or in this case the teams!! magica has two teams, puipui and chichin (it’s supposed to come from chi-chin-pui-pui, a kind of spell or charm used so that the pain children feel can be cured!)
the teams have the same goal… but it might also be a competition as the winner team has been promised a prize..? mysterious : o
names from left to right!!! favored names are bolded
Anri “Ai” Tokiwa / Cure Charm - A levelheaded, quiet girl who somehow has an intimidating aura. She has interesting literature and fashion choices (even though the latter can’t be really seen anymore, as Ui insists on wearing at least somehow matching clothes…).
Ui Musubi / Cure Enchant - The cold on the outside, sweet-and-soft on the inside idol girl of the school. She has a hard time getting along with people.
Chiari Riku / Cure Cherish - An odd, loud girl who seems to know everything about everyone - she’s smart and cunning and won’t hesitate to use whatever is necessary to get what she wants.
Chantilly “Yuri” Aoi / Cure Chérie - The new girl in the school - a french-japanese student who’s turning out to be more than just a cute face. She has the third best grades in the school - just after Ai and Riku.
While studying henshins, I’ve had to make up some terminology to describe what I’m seeing, because to my knowledge, no English-speaker has every been pathetic enough to analyze this shit in this level of detail. Today’s term-I-pulled-out-of-my-butt is:
n; stuff you paint onto pottery, and at first it looks drab and shitty, but after a couple hours in the kiln, it looks shiny and awesome.
n; any substance that adheres to a Magical Girl’s body and then turns into clothing.
DISCLAIMER: I do not recommend baking Magical Girls in kilns.
The cheapest and most common type of glaze is a glowy sludge capable of morphing into any shape without putting much strain on the animation budget.
