It looks like a 1/2 (as in one half, or one divided by two), although I don't know why. Well, obviously, she only has 1/2 of her eyes, so that's something, but it could also be related to her magic. Medusa covers herself with arrows, and her magic involves arrows. Maybe the head witch's magic involves numbers? This leads to a slightly interesting idea that the witches are using some complicated form of numerology or arithmancy, considering Medusa uses vector arrows.

The room in Soul's head being an homage to the famous Red Room of Twin Peaks (From the curtain and checkered floor, down to the little man dancing with his arms out at his side) was rather amusing.

Considering she's called Mabaa-sama (魔婆様), in Japanese, I'm assuming that's a title rather than a name. Every single witch we've met (and will meet) has had a Western name.

I would probably go with The Crone if I had to choose something in English.

Yeah, it was pretty liberal
And that's not true about the western names. Mizune and Eruka are just plays on the words nezumi and kaeru.

All I'll say is, Blair is as cute as a kitten as she's sexy as a woman.

I'm actually surprised he didn't freak out at anything. There was a lot of stuff that seemed out of place or not perfectly placed.

You're right, I forgot about them. Let me amend that then, every single Witch we've seen (and will see) has had a katakana name.

LOL I thought the same thing since I noticed the pictures on the walls where in perfect symmetry. Maybe he wasnt freaking out cuz it wasnt his stuff. Of course that wouldnt explain the freak out he had with Anubis but looking too much into Kid's idiosyncricies. I did like seeing them all in regular clothes just hanging out.

Well I think Kid's obsession with symmetry is rather inconsistant even through the manga which is a shame.
I did lol at him staring at Blair's naked body for the longest though (whereas Soul was just KO'ed ).

Blair's body is nicely symmetrical.

Also, there was no crooked frame in the manga.

If it was perfectly consistent and applied to everything he'd never stop panicking about asymmetry and things that just don't make sense to him. When the obsessiveness really hits him, he can't think straight or on some occasions even move (frankly, I find it a tad depressing, but this is a comedy...). To some extent I think Kid needs to cope with it, both in canon as a person, and as a character for him to function in the story.

Solid episode. The scene about Soul's dream was done nicely and I loved the voice for the little devil. It took me a minute to figure out who the voice was, it was bothering me like hell.


I'm actually really excited to read the manga when the anime is done (I usually wait till after the anime is over to read the manga for some reason lol). BONES seems to go away from the manga on most of their stuff so it's always fun to read the original material and get a different story.

Well Medusa did tell the snake to devour her without a trace, so in the anime version at least it probably did consume her soul. Which makes sense since a witch's soul isn't something she'd want to leave lying around in the middle of Shibusen...

You may be onto something here.

What's a "crone"? and what do we call this witch?

crone
–noun
a withered, witchlike old woman.


In Japanese they call her "mabaa" which is sort of a combination of "old lady" and "witch" although it seems to be used in a respectful way. I think "The Crone" when used as a title would work.

So im pretty late on episode 12 but regardless i liked Medusa is such a beast and her part time job beside being nurse might be a pimp or an assistant pimp with that jacket. I do like how the strain of what happened to Soul has strained Maka and Souls relationship its been done pretty well. I am going to watch the episode again since i watched it at like 3am so i feel like i missed somethings. A more complete post once i see it again.
