All right then may as well start the new thread. Essentially this series boils down to six girls get sent to the past to battle villains to help out these people. All six of course have err magical girl style transformations.
The first three episodes dealt with setting up the story. Ie introducing the characters and getting the girls together with each other during the Edo period. Episodes 4-8 have the "Let's introduce a transformation while advancing the story" episodes.
There was no transformation in episode 9 sadly. Although I have a feeling there is a good chance we'll see one in episode 10. Even though there was no conclusive evidence. Still something major will have to happen in episode 10. It looks like <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>Ukyo was killed by his own ally or whatever. I guess Tae breaking free of control is enough justification for the villain.</span>
In any case I'll worry about summarizing the episodes later, although I kind of wish someone would help with the summaries. Yes I'm begging. So far the only girl who has yet to transform is Tae herself. I was looking forward to comparing her transformation to the others. Ie to finally decide my true favorite of the six.
Funny thing is Ryo's transformation is growing on me. Partially because I've been rewatching her episode. I guess there is just something about the way she just charges the guy that's appealing. Err I'll leave it at that. Either way I'm sure Tae will have to transform soon given this is probably going to be what 13 episodes?

MOON PHASE states it as 12 episodes.
I haven't seen episode 9 yet but no transformation? And I was waiting for it...
Just skipped through it: maybe Tae will have hers in ep 10? She seems to "awake" or something like that at the end of the preview... we'll see.

Well since it's only going to be 12 episodes, Tae better have her transformation in episode 10. That way 11-12 can be dedicated to the main battle as well as wrapping up the story. Well as best the story can be wrapped up when it's only 12 episodes.

Episode 10 was definitely the transformation episode for Tae herself. Heh I'll get to describing the episode later maybe. I'm bit out of it and am not sure how to describe it beyond <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>Tae's energy is used inside some dragon that she gets sealed in. Dragon gives them trouble. Yui defeats Dragon. Tae is freed. Tae transforms and cleans up the after math. As in causing water to put out fires. Which includes summoning a different dragon. Oh yeah Tae herself is a bit of a show off becauee she throws an umbrella in the air and it causes well fireworks.</span>
Hmm so just two episodes left. Now all that's left is deciding which character has the best transformation scene in the end. I think I'll err study them later. Still it's nice to know that now all six of them have had their transformation scene.

I'm not exactly sure what happened in episode 11 beyond <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>Sakyou has magic candles or whatever that seem to be connected to people's lives. He makes Yui and Enchou come alone. Yui gets defeated and loses her artifact.</span> Given that 12 is the final episode it's more or less easy to guess what will happen. Although to be honest <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>given how for most of the episodes Ukyou was the main villain and Sakyou appears nears the end. I'm not sure I'll be getting much of an impression from. Except for the fact Sakyou wears too much lipstick. He needs to cut back.</span>

All right then episode 12 was the conclusion to the series. In short <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>Yui makes effort against villain. Her friends have come to help her. Villain attacks, but stops because something is not right. Probably the artifact he stole from Yui is not working as he planned. Yui's artifact apparently kills the villain. Thus he was a moron for taking it in the first place. Akira the genius of the group apparently builds a time machine and they all go back home. I have no idea if they forgot everything that happened or not.</span>
Yeah I have to say over all I did like the series. Granted it's short and doesn't seem to be anything deep as far as I can tell. However it was quite fun to watch. My main gripe besides episode length is that honestly <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>spending that much time with Ukyou as the main threat to only have him replaced by Sakyou was kind of a let down</span> Ah well.
Now I need to watch the transformation scenes in sequence and decide which one is my favorite. I'm just glad each uses a different tune. Although my favorite entrance magical girl wise is Tae's entrance simply because err she's a show off. I'll leave it at that. In terms of character due to certain reasons it's a toss up for now.

Regarding this, <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>I don't think they forgot. When they came back, Akira and Suzu said that everything disappeared, then they saw the painting with them. And the following morning, the 4 others acted as if they were old friends. Which they somewhat are now, but it was just a night for everyone so the change is quite shocking.
I didn't understand what Yui was saying about Akira, just that the power of love is amazing. Since she's looking at a time machine that she must have done since the other disappeared, I wonder if she wants to return to Edo and be with Gennai.</span>
I liked this show too. It was light and fun. I must say that I didn't watch it much for the transformation scenes, but for the <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>Yui/Miyabi combo. The two of them were fun to watch (especially Miyabi and her denying) even if there's nothing in the end. Unrequited love, again.</span>

Ah that was definitely one of the aspects of the series I like. It was kind of fun even if nothing really came out of it. Still maybe there is hope for the future. Err then again I'm just being delusional there. So pay me no mind. In any case it's good to know for certain that <span style='color:#dddddd;background:#dddddd'>they did in fact remember everything.</span>
