That was a purposeful choice in PMMM (though I’ll say that Madoka exhibited more personality than… Read More Madoka Magica Side Story Magia Record, Episode 11: Mysterious Friends
Two’s company. Three’s a community. That much is apparent in Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, which begins with a twosome—Asakusa and Kanamori—adding a third member, Mizusaki.
