But Maki doesn't put up a facade. That is why she is so emotionally honest, and subverts the usual tsundere trope. She isn't self-delusional, which is what defines the other girls (and the tsundere). She might doubt herself occasionally, as she does somewhat with her ability as an artist, but she doesn't delude herself into thinking she's someone she's not, and her responses to the others and the story show that: for example, while she may childishly believe in somethings, she does so earnestly. Her loneliness also shows this, though to get into this element of her character would necessarily involve Nico (especially DAT SONG <3).

I would disagree that Honoka is honest. While the series wants to make that part of narrative, it doesn't reinforce it. She's the most dishonest, the most self-delusional and self-serving. But that's a character study that goes off topic.......



Being a tsundere is literally putting up a facade and being emotionally distant, that's what the archetype is. She's only able to be honest when someone teases away the tsun completely and that means she doesn't subvert the trope because she's too afraid/unsure to say it plainly. Whether that's Nico or any of the other members that tease her. On the scale she's a pretty deredere tsundere and I do think she's a sweet girl. That's about it though.

Continuing with her being an innocent young girl on the inside. As an example, I feel like the younger "her" from the OVA was supposed to be a metaphor for her true self. She tried to say how she really felt to all the girls, but when she reverted back to her older self she couldn't say it.

I do agree that in the loneliness aspect. I almost feel like Nico and Maki are brought together a lot because they were the only ones that didn't have really close friends before µ's like for example HonoKotoUmi, RinPana, EliNozo so they bonded over that aspect.

Honoka is self-serving and self-delusional, but I don't see how you can say she's dishonest. She literally just says what on her mind at any given time like it's fact and pulls everyone with her. There were times she doubted herself because of mistakes she made, and maybe was unsure of her feelings. I don't think she was hiding anything though...I believe she just honestly didn't know. Then the other girls were able to pull her back from this, just like she pulled them.

A prologue to a vote................

The engines echo into the night as Alibaba walks out of the dress shop and onto the street once more. The moon shines high above him, gilding the crooked crumbling shanties around him in dull silver.

“Hey kid…….got a light?”

Looming out of the silvery murk as if peeling himself forth from the silvery air itself, a white-haired man approaches Alibaba and waves arm, at the end of which is clutched a small rolled piece of paper. Alibaba looks at the jug carried in the mans’ other arm.

“Depends. Do you have a drink?”

“Kouki is ambrosia for the misshapen ones…..you, too, are a misshapen one, warped by an evil otherworldly. But to share it with you would be blasphemy.”

Saying nothing Alibaba takes out his dagger. Flames dance along the edge. The silver-haired man leans forward, lips to the cigarette, held to the flames writing along the blade. With a flick of his wrist Alibaba sends the head of the man soaring through the air, lit by the arc of his burning cigarette before disappearing into the silvery wash.

Wandering through the thick haze the shanties begin dispersing, becoming transparent, becoming mere shadows etched against the endless silver. Alibaba finds himself on a limitless plain with no horizon and no stars above. The moon drifts downwards, bringing the heavens with it. Smashing into the silvery plain, it turns to liquid and is absorbed, silver-on-silver being the only distinguishing feature of the plain before that too becomes part of monochrome eternity.

Alibaba closes his eyes, and feels himself drifting amongst translucent ether---

A memory like flame, hair like blazing stardust. He reaches out into the nothingness to reach her, but the silver claims her as well, and all around him comes the echoing laughter tinged blue-------

Opening his eyes, his body wreathed in flame, Alibaba finds himself on a wide rune-scarred dias. Before him chants a white-robed wizard in glasses. Alibaba notices the blue-hair and without even the need for thought the flames around him hurl towards the wizard, reducing him to charred cinders. Stomping and scattering the embers, flickering flaming dust clinging to his cheeks and naked body, Alibaba still does not halt his rage at the blue-haired bastard. His undulating howls eventually take the form of the name “Aladdin,” flung towards the dome of silver encasing him. Long after the silver-spell has been broken does Alibaba hurl flame and curses into the night.

As the city burns down around him, Alibaba realizes that the only way to stop the madness of Magi or gods or Men who seek to rule the world………



………..is to end it.

This is a Vote

Ginko will win.

Ginko is a master of human nature who has out maneuvered gods. Killua is a little boy with an extrodinary knack for combat, but little else.

While Killua might best Ginko in mortal combat, he has no chance in a battle of wits. Ginko's knowlege and wisdom rivals gods and he is a master of the human condition. A child soldier with PTSD is too easy a target for Ginko to even concider as an opponent. He might allow Killua win an argument out of kindness, but that would still be Ginko's victory in a battle of wits.
