Well, how else would Mopey be aware of developments in the magical-girl-genre, unless some friend would had told her about it? I hope you’re not trying to imply she would, herself, have any sort of even the faintest interest in that sort of fare! At the very least, I hope you’re smart enough not to imply that in her presence – unless your reflexes are sharp and your land speed approaches that of a gepard.
That person in a trenchcoat, shades and a wide-brimmed hat, who sometimes hangs out at the very back at screenings by the university’s anime club definitely isn’t Mopey, and I don’t know what even gave you that preposterous idea. >_> And the indisputable fact that Mopey has an alleged friend who is into magical-girl-anime just shows how incredibly tolerant she is, and nothing else. >_>
Other than that, I can only fully agree with Mopey’s observations: This transformation is a lot less pink-colored than her earlier one, but it’s definitely longer…I couldn’t even get it all crammed into one strip, I’m sorry. ^_^; They really have been getting longer all across the whole of the genre and its direct neighbors, though. And this is a first transformation, so cannot be shortened, let alone omitted. One of the iron rules, completely out of my hand. But I swear I’ll start shortening/skipping as soon as admissible, as strong as the temptation might be to recycle this sequence over and over again to save me work. XD
More on Monday.
