Gushing over Magical Girls Episode 11 Review

Leoparde’s Secret Stars

Gushing over Magical Girls Episode 11 was delayed for something like seven hours. But, it was finally released internationally. Not that this will matter for the majority of you reading this review. But, I figured it was worth mentioning in case the remaining episodes are also delayed.

Now, I want to start this review off by continuing our discussion of Leoparde’s stars from Episode 10. In Episode 10, Leoparde revealed that she has three stars. That’s the same number as Nero Alice, Loco Musica, Leberblume, and Sister Gigant.

But, it was unclear how or when she acquired those stars. Did she always have them? Did she only manifest them during this fight? Or, did she get them from some off-screen training arc that mirrored Magia Azure’s? At the time, we didn’t know. But, now we do, and the answer was kind of obvious.

So, it turns out that Leoparde had three stars all along. She didn’t gain them during this fight or through training beforehand. And, that makes sense for two main reasons. The first is something I pointed out last week, which is that we had never seen her chest before.

The second, however, is even more important. At no point before this did we ever see a girl permanently increase her star count. Sure, Magia Baiser can multiply her stars when she gets really worked up. But, once she calms down, she reverts back to only having two.

We never saw a character start with fewer stars and work their way up to having more. So, it wouldn’t have made much sense if Leoparde had to do that. The other girls had their stars all along. The only things they gained were special transformations like Leoparde’s cat form.

Magia Azure’s Veritas Transformation

Speaking of special transformations, they aren’t limited to the Enormita girls. In Episode 11, we saw Magia Azure use a special kind of transformation after saying “La Veritas.” I don’t know if there’s an official name for this transformation. So, for now, I’ll call it a Veritas transformation.

If we find out that there’s an official name for it in the future, I’ll start using that name for it then. But, regardless of what the name is, it’s clear that the Tres Magia needed something like this. Otherwise, they were about to get power crept out of relevancy.

We can assume that Baiser’s special transformation is when she multiplies her stars. She looks a bit different when this happens and she becomes more powerful. We also know that Leoparde has a special, more powerful transformation. And, it doesn’t seem like a stretch that the other girls will awaken them, too.

If the Enormita girls were the only ones getting power-ups, the Tres Magia wouldn’t be a threat at all. In fact, the Tres Magia weren’t that much of a threat even before this. So, these Vertias transformations are really only helping them barely keep up.

I mean, do any of us expect the Tres Magia to be able to defeat Enormita ever? If they could, the series wouldn’t be as entertaining as it is. They need to remain at least a little weaker than the Enormita girls — or at least weaker than Baiser.

If the Tres Magia are too strong for Baiser to dominate, then what’s the point?

Anyway, it’s unfortunate that we didn’t get to see too much of Azure’s Veritas transformation. The shot we got of her from behind reminded me of Yuki Yuna, so I wanted to see more.

Throwaway Pawn, Lord Enorme

I can’t say I was expecting Baiser to be able to defeat Lord as easily as she did. But, I thought how she managed to do it was pretty entertaining.

Baiser thought Lord’s goal of world domination was childish. That goal and Lord’s appearance weren’t matching up in Baiser’s mind. So, what did she do? She imagined that Lord was a child. And, apparently, that got her in the mood to fight because Baiser likes bullying the weak.

I was hoping for a little more ecchi content involving Lord. The spanking was good. But, we only saw that happening while she looked like a child. I would have liked to see more of it from the perspective of the other girls.

What’s more important, though, is the effect this spanking had on Lord. As Baiser was spanking her, Lord was losing her stars until one remained.

At the very end of the episode, we find out that Lord was using borrowed power. She only ever had one star naturally. The other three stars were all the result of power she borrowed from Venalita. And, as Venalita says, Lord was only ever a throwaway pawn.

Venalita used Lord in order to bring out the true power of the other girls. So, we have to once again ask, “What is Venalita after?” At this point, we still don’t know. Though, as I theorized after Episode 1, it may be that Venalita wants to see magical girls and villains fight.

The answer may be that simple. Or, it may be that Venalita wants to defeat Vatz because of some rivalry. But, whatever his reason is, I don’t think it’s going to be complex. This is a parody anime. I doubt he’s collecting soul energy to power the universe.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Gushing over Magical Girls Episode 11? Were you waiting to watch the episode because of the international release delay? How strong do you think Azure is now that she has her Veritas transformation? And, was the fight against Lord all that you hoped it would be?
