The world ended and with it the Magical Girls Apocalypse project, however, Kii, Kaede, Rintaro, and Tsukune’s father found themselves thrust back into their normal lives. It was a rude awakening, to say the least!
Magical Girl Apocalypse (Volume 6)
Kaede suddenly found herself in the school cafeteria sitting opposite Miki. The change left her screaming, drawing the attention of everyone around them. Had it all been a horrible dream? She was sure that she was about to die, but now she was here and everyone was alive. Well, not everyone. Kaede tried to find Kii and the others. That was when she discovered that Tsukunue had been killed in a car crash three days ago… the time the Magical Girls would have first appeared.
She managed to get a teacher to give her Tsukune’s address and headed straight there. On the way, she saw Yoruka and asked her about the Magical Girls. Yoruka had no memory of the events but had just been asked similar questions by a student she had never met before- Kogami Kii! When Kaede arrived at Tsukune’s house she was met at the door by Kii. Tsukune’s father was not pleased to see them, especially as he just learnt about his daughter’s death!
Kii told them about the letter he had received and how it told him what to do. He explained that he believed that Tsukune was still alive somehow and that the letter said he would find answers from Tsukune’s mother who was suspiciously missing. Just then, a knock at the door interrupted their discussion. It was Rintaro who was keen to find out what happened to Tsukune as her body had been taken.
Kii forced Rintaro to drive them to the hospital and on the way they encountered the parasite Magical Girl, charging at their car. However, she wasn’t attacking them. There was another being on top of the car with the ability to mimic all the Magical Girls. It seemed to want Kii but was stopped by a woman with a sword. She later revealed to them that she was Miu who had been sent back twenty years into the past. When the world ended there was no future to return to so she was stuck here.
Miu and Hana-chan (the parasite Magical Girl) took them to a secret laboratory when Tsukune’s mother was waiting for them. She told them that she was the descendant of a witch who was born out of the union of a demon and a human. She was a Magical Girl and so was Tsukune. Someone in the future had been using her blood to create alternate Magical Girls.
In this timeline, the Magical Girls are on their side and will help them. Someone in the future is collecting the ninth generation of Magical Girls, but there’s one major snag. Tsukune isn’t even married. They’ll need to protect her while they try to get to the bottom of everything. There’s just one last thing. They need to meet the person that is pulling the strings on their side and his from the future!
What did you think?
Loved it! This series is amazing and this volume was completely nuts. The way they reintroduced the main characters to this alternate world was amazing. I loved how they were dropped back into the mundane and could only react by losing it. Poor Kii arrived as the popular girl in school was confessing her feelings for him and all he could do was cry at the thought that it was all over.
The best thing about this one was the introduction of twenty-eight-year-old Miu. She’s awesome and having Hana-chan with her was hilarious, especially as she has an obsession with Rintaro and Hana-chan desperately wants to kill him. Of course, Rintaro being Rintaro, he’s not interested in an “old hag” like that! The witch storyline adds a bit of meat to the bones and from what we’ve seen of Himeji it’s quite clear that he’s the main villain.
What have you learnt?
When I started this series, I thought it was just going to be a fairly standard apocalyptic story with Magical Girls. At no point did I expect there to be time travel and witches. It absolutely never occurred to me and I love it for that. I like when a story is on genre, but I love it when it manages to pull a number of different genres into one story, especially when it’s a bunch of my favourites. The best thing is I have another ten volumes to get through so there is the potential for this to go anywhere.
They grabbed us with the hyper gore, caught our attention with the whole Tsukune and Kaede plot, and then made sure that only those that are completely insane are still reading at this point. If you’ve made it this far, you’re pretty much guaranteed to finish it and that is what you want from a series. There are so many questions that need answers that I can’t see anyone walking away at this point. After volume one or two maybe, but after that, you know if this story is for you.
