Is this a new magical girl???
think sailor moon
That might for her having a “tattoo” of an anchor, rather than a “tattoo” of a heart.
Is that…another magical girl?
Oh heck, she was in one of the earlier pages!!
She was in 3-3-6 panel 1, looking unimpressed. Also, VD seems to have shot his wad and is taking a nap. As men do.
Flat on his back in the surf. He’d better wake up before he drowns.
Soooo that he can actually comprehend how much he messed up?
So why did it take so long for her to get here then?
Maybe helping people escape. Maybe hanging back for whatever reason. Publicity shy? Untrained/no mentor? Blames their abilities/ heritage for some family tragedy?
In any case, NOT charging into danger is normal behaviour for normal people. And if this person is slightly less normal in ability, they may be perfectly normal in their thought patterns.
Jenny, Jenny, who(m) can I turn to?
You rang? Sorry I’m late, I was getting some toast.
Definitely a magical girl. Neil has competition. VD is very lucky.
I’m not sure if she’d be competition, I want to believe that Magical Girls have a special bond to work together, especially if this one is also descended from the same shrine maiden that Neil is descended from.
I think that the shrine maiden only transforms ONE descendant in every generation. Also, that she didn’t exactly had lot of options when she went with Neil.
On the other hand, how many villages had similar shrine?
I expect that means per family, so as to not deplete the genetic stock should one perish in the line of duty. After all this time, the shrine priestess could have millions of descendants.
Meh, if Neil’s mother is anything to go by, they are not big on cooperation.
I would not say “definitely”, but there is a very high probability, from her bathing suit being similar “old style” as Neil, to her anchor tattoo that in those old times of the “modern” (but not contemporary) era, still could mean that you were a SAILOR……
And no, I do not think she is competition. ^_^
Wow another magical girl? Who is she???
Funnily enough, with that hat, my first thought was “Stand user”.
(Yes, this is a JoJo reference.)
She does give off just a bit of a Jotaro vibe.
Funny enough that line used in the link is something said by Tuxedo Mask, the classic staple of a protector figure.
(Also what if the guy Neil met was that new magical girl? Just a though)
Skin and eyes match Gabe’s, so it is very possible
Welcome Player 4!
Oh, look! She has a cutie mark, too.
Okay – first time we saw her is after Neil transformed … so if, hypothetically, someone else we’ve met were a Magical Girl in their civilian identity, they probably would have transformed, too.
Somebody with somewhat darker skintone than Neil’s.
Whether genetic, or because they visit the beach a lot.
Ohh definitely, we have seen that Eye color and skintone before
Neil keeps those when he transforms, I think this is Gabe, the guy Neil met earlier.
I was just going to come back and mention the eye colour.
And i don’t know if we/Sat established yet whether Gabe is normally genetically male or female…
…and i was having so much fun not actually mentioning The Name.
Can Magical Girls recognise each other inside their divine bodies?
The only thing I see against that is we didn’t see him react to the oni’s presence like Neil did.
could be more used to it.
True. Plus Neil’s reactions are probably because he’s fighting the transform, not just going along with it.
I’d say gave is a high probability.
10 bucks says that’s gabe.
I don’t bet against sucker bets
Just went back to Gabes first appearance. Same eye color, similar skin color. Only the hair is off. I’d say that it’s a high probability.
Neil doesn’t keep the same hair color so…
When somebody mentions something in the archive, I usually like to give a link to where it occurs (3.2 #8) http://www.magicalgirlneil.com/comic/3-2-8/ although Gabe’s name isn’t mentioned until a few strips later.
Looking at 3.2-13 panel 2, it can certainly be argued that Gabe is also reacting to the Oni’s aura. If he followed Neil’s halting progress, he could have seen the transformation flash and figured it out. The major issue then becomes what he has been doing, and helping people get clear is a legitimate activity. Especially if/since he knows some of the locals.
Also, it is one of a few explanations for what appears to be her tender solicitude of BB!Neil’s welfare.
“…’at’s alls I can stans, ‘cos I can’t stans no more!”
Slow day. I’ve been making some gravatars, and i’m tempted to make one of the former beach scenes (with the crowd’s initial reactions) into a wallpaper – if i do i may add Edda Burber into it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/58854b2d44ec551d4967d6ecebef542d7c48a9094529bd4a29dda1e5bf2a2bb6.jpg
9 Chickweed Lane? Never thought I see that show up here.
People keep saying she was in previous strips, but I went back and couldn’t find her. That is the sort of detail I love, so could someone please tell me exactly where to look?
In the strip on 3-3-6 (put that in the URL), she’s standing in the crowd, on the left side of panel 1.
Ah! Thank you. I just didn’t go back nearly far enough. hat’s the sort of detail I love.
If it Is Gabe in there: ‘You hurt my waifu. Prepare to die.’
Purple mane, purple reign. Looks like this ain’t her first rodeo.
Someones about to get wrecked
i’m glag that it was someone besides VD that rescued the falling Neil . i get the feeling that she’s another Magical girl given how she looked at the Oni.
Here she is, in the back of the scene, looking (to our persoective), leftward, i.e., the beach. Straight faced…..
I meander outside of spinny.
Oh dear, I think something’s gonna pay…
