Stella no Mahou Episode 10 Review – “Precision Machinery”

3 comments

Sorry this one is coming out so late. Things got hectic on Thursday and then I went drinking on Friday to mourn over the fact that one of my co-workers was leaving the company. Well, here it is!

(Spoilers in this review

Tama-chan starts off the day thinking today’s going to be great. Everyone’s wearing their summer uniform, she got to talk to her dad on the phone, and her lunch is packed full of chopped burdock!

And then she bumped into Teru and things went downhill. She gives Tamaki an image change and then decides to bum around in her high school alma mater. What a carefree college student.

Teru gives Tamaki a hug after she confesses that she’s not feeling confident about her art.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h32m50s503
Sly Teru slaps her trademark flower onto Tamaki’s head.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h33m13s324
She made you a yuri heart-throb, that’s what.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h33m42s980
See? No girl can resist.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h35m40s804
Every girl wants to be like Tamaki.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h35m50s192
E-eh? Did Teru help Tamaki discover some exhibitionism fetish?

After spending the day being lustfully stared at by other students, Tamaki finds Ha-chan and sits down for lunch. Ha-chan is a bit overbearing on her, but she does want Tamaki to try harder and to have more pride in her work.

Apparently she also started drawing when she should have been studying for the tests shown in the previous episode.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h37m18s629
This was actually me as a student.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h37m33s102
“If she’s drawing, so shall I!”

Teru swings by and claims that she’s a first-year and that she’s a SNS fan. Well, she’s a first-year in college, so that’s kind of true… she and Ha-chan sort of hit it off. Teru then opts to leave the school before she sees how everyone else is doing.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h08m21s959
Oh, a promise?

After school, Ha-chan continues to help out Tamaki. All of that is pushed to the side when Seki arrives to the club as Iris-Sensei. Ha-chan continues to be completely fooled.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h41m20s810
Heroes are always late (?)
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h41m26s810
Is this some new type of tsundere? 
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h41m35s352
Those faces are pretty good.

Tamaki ends up getting jealous over all the attention Ha-chan is giving Seki. Is she jealous about Ha-chan or Seki? It’s pretty ambigious.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h43m04s231
“Dang, this girl is aggressive.”
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h43m09s549
“Ha-chan’s sweater looks pretty cool…”
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h43m53s223
She asks to borrow Shiina’s PC again in order to practice…
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h44m16s948
…and ends up finding an interesting picture.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h47m35s197
Still jealous hours later.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h48m04s107
Aggressive!
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h48m09s999
The smug reaction was uncalled for!
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h49m17s332
Behind Seki is the devil and before Seki is the deep, blue sea.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h49m41s336
Kayo is my favorite character, but she sure gets a lot less screen time compared to the other characters in the SNS club.

Ha-chan eventually leaves. Shiina tries to give Tamaki some advice, but Tamaki snaps at her and makes her cry. Feeling terrible, she runs out of the club room… with Shiina’s laptop in hand.

 

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h51m16s734vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h51m38s819vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h51m45s493vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h51m50s879vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h51m55s626

Apparently this qualifies as almost being an argument. It seems rather minor to me, but I digress. Also, Kayo, you’re not really helping things here!

Somehow she didn’t notice this, so Tamaki ends up dropping the laptop when she moved both her hands to grasp her head as she lamented her outburst. Somehow.

Teru swoops in to check in on her. Tamaki then tries to use her charm to get Teru to accompany her in order to apologize, but Teru disappears and wishes her the best of luck. Sometimes the kouhai has to do things by herself, y’know?

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h53m39s699
Dojikko Tamaki?
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h53m54s377
No, my dear readers, she didn’t mean that.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h54m11s929
This time, Teru takes back her hair ornament while disappearing.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h54m21s585
But she returned Tamaki’s… what would this be called? Tamaki’s hankerchief?

Tamaki ends up following Shiina until she decides she has to hug her and ask for her forgiveness. Shiina ends up taking Tamaki home.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-22h58m22s995
Also, Shiina’s mom is pretty much the best mom.

Seki stops by because she doesn’t have make-up remover and her kid brother was scared of Seki’s face. In time, he will grow to appreciate the hard work women go through in order to put on make-up. Maybe.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h00m27s599
How does her eyes change with make-up??
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h01m20s770
Turns out her laptop wasn’t broken but merely out of power.

Tamaki then turns on her yuri charm again and starts laying it thick on Shiina. Tamaki, you’re out of control! (please keep this up)

Of course, their little moment was interupted prematurely.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h01m45s716vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h01m52s530vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m01s953vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m08s169vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m15s234

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m21s747.pngvlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m27s535vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h02m32s314vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h03m05s278vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h03m12s391

It turns out Ha-chan has been learning programming from Shiina recently, which explains the sudden intrusion. Upon seeing that Tamaki is here, Ha-chan claims that they should try their best to work on the game since semester exams are coming up.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h04m00s189
…I guess she makes for a good rival and friend for Tamaki.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h04m13s725
Seki’s double-life continues.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h05m53s074
Seki’s mom is also a programmer…as well as an enabler. Do you know that Red Bull now comes in cranberry, blueberry, and limon flavors?

Shiina now starts chilling in the living room since everyone’s invaded her bedroom. I can sort of relate to that since I spent four semesters sleeping outside in the living room because I hated my roommate that much, haha. We also get some more flashbacks.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h06m56s609
Teru had just nominated Shiina to be the new SNS club president!
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h08m42s305
Sometimes I forget that Teru is two years older than most of the SNS club.
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h08m50s774
“Don’t worry, fam, you got this.”
vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h08m58s657
Oh, so that’s the promise she was talking about, huh?

The last scene of the episode has Shiina walking in to help out everyone else. Seems like the SNS club has gotten at least a few times more lively now, huh?

Except Kayo remains an outsider. Poor Kayo.

vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h09m03s142vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h09m07s752vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h09m13s540vlcsnap-2016-12-10-23h09m18s406


Next week’s episode is titled, “Having a problem, young lady?” I think the episode preview was pretty good (and it made me realize I need to pay more attention since we find out the identity of Ha-chan’s older sister…yet I didn’t put two and two together until I saw episode 11’s preview despite the hints in previous episodes).

See you next week!
