I would call Swim-Swim best girl with a straight face if it led to an Alice figure being made.

Would be tough though.

Episode 10

So how does one go about killing someone who can just regenerate? That would be to strike while she is not transformed and Swim Swim knew her secret identity thanks to Minael disguising herself as Alice's plushie. And on a rainy day, that was the perfect opportunity for Swim Swim to strike. Now, Swim Swim is out to take Cranberry out next and Minael is easily defeated as she couldn't hide from her ears. So with Alice and Minael dead, that means five girls are left. The brutality just keeps on piling.

Episode 10

Swim Swim makes her move again... I feel like she's getting quite daring with her plans. A bit of a cheap shot if you ask me especially since she attacked Hardgore Alice when she was powerless. Smart but dirty move. I wonder if that was the only way to get rid of Hardgore Alice in the first place?

Also a bit more of background storytelling about the twins. I guess Ripple is seeking for some revenge soon. I mean, it's hard to forget about what happened with her friend.

Considering that not even Calamity Mary's super powered weaponry couldn't kill Alice, I'm going to assume that was the only way. And while you may consider it a dirty move, I'd say anything goes in a death game. While I also understand that people may not like Swim Swim because she's killed off their favorites, it's always amusing to see people go ballistic over the fact that she's essentially playing the game better than everybody else. Hell, she might have even been liked if she were the protagonist.

Most aggravating character award goes to Snow White. Saying she needs Alice at her side because she's weak and can't do anything, then throwing something at Alice because she is weak and can't do anything.

Alice has absolutely no communication skill. While SW was panicking, all she did was pissing her off so there's no surprise of how what happened at that time. That's usually the kind of happening that get cleared the next time two peoples meet each other. They never meet each other again, but that's another problem.

If she said the words she said when she was dying at her previous meeting, SW wouldn't have snapped.

And there goes my favorite....

Swim Swim has kill Winterprison, Top Speed, and now Hardgore Alice. I hope her winning streak ends with Cranberry. On the other hand, Cranberry killed La Pucelle and is responsible for this death game in the first place.

I left Ruler out on purpose because I don't think anyone liked her and Nana committed suicide.

I have to agree. I swear that most anime fans will only tend to empathize with characters that they wish they could be, typically badasses or people who are incredibly competent. Characters like Snow White, Subaru from Re:Zero, or Deku from My Hero Academia (pre-development), who have yet to become hyper capable badasses always tend to get shit on for simply acting the way somebody of their circumstances and personality would act. Snow White is a 13 year old girl, and an incredibly naïve and all-loving one at that considering that she idolized magical girls and always desired to be one, just to help other people. To be forced into a death game and have her worldview rocked alongside the death of her best friend is bound to make her behave a bit irrationally. Snow White would have improved her relationship with Hardgore Alice, if not for the announcement that Sister Nana had been killed as well as being told that the number of survivors is being brought further down to four. She had already been at her limit after Souta's death, and like you said, Alice has poor communication skills and just made things worse

Swim Swim influenced their deaths though hence why I said technically.

This one seems to "like" to see many characters dying/getting killed. It's like in Akame ga Kill!. I'm aware that those two don't have anything in common (except that) but just wanted to say.

Anyway, back to episode. Poor Alice. Same i would say about Minael, despite she was a bit evil. Finally got to see some backstory about twins.

So, who's next? Two episodes remains and there's six left. I guess i would like to see Swim Swim and Cranberry gone, at least those two.

Also, that one line Minael said at the start, "We should've done at the start." Why say it twice?

arg dammit. 2 more get killed off one I liked and one I was happy to see go!


and we find out that what Cranberry being doing is just bullshit and she just a freaking psycho.


I hope Ripple does a sneak attack and takes out Swim Swim or Cranberry.

So, simply because episode 10 was getting so intense, I decided to read the original story (from the light novels) to get some closure.

Without spoiling ANYTHING, I can safely say this anime will have a satisfying conclusion. I mean, if they drastically change the ending I'm wrong, but so far this adptation has not only been faithful, but also adding to the original light novels (characters such as Nemurin and The Peaky Angels didn't have backstories in the first arc, for example).

What I've loved throughout is the fact that very often death feels random, but realistic. There have been a couple where you could see it coming - heck, we were getting Hardgore Alice's backstory while she was in the process of being killed! - but for the most part the deaths are sudden and are often the result of either carelessness or simply not being a strong enough magical girl in a given situation.

Also, I don't know why but they made Snow White even more of a wimp for the anime. In the light novels she doesn't exactly do much better, but she does at least get visibly angry about the death game instead of just crying about it. She even lets out a lot of her frustration at Fav, even if Fav just carries on being the snide little ball of evil he is. I think the reason it didn't translate over is that most of the time this is happening inside Snow White's head, instead of spoken out loud. But it's okay, in comparison to most underpowered MCs at least Snow White IS trying.


But yeah, my overall opinion of this series is that bar some very minor issues it's a pretty flawless story and I've truly had a great time with it.
...I'm also prepared to cry a fair bit for these next few episodes.
