Maho Girls PreCure! Episode 9: The Final Lesson

The opening theme for the past few episodes of Maho Girls PreCure! has featured previews of Pretty Cure All Stars: Singing with Everyone♪ Miraculous Magic, and with this episode’s preview focusing on combat – it looks great, I can’t wait to watch it.
However, we’re here to talk about the ninth episode of Maho Girls PreCure!, not the next All Stars film. It looks like this episode is the last we’ll be seeing of the Magic World for a while.

As the students talk about their upcoming final lesson, the conversation turns to how Mirai will be leaving the Magic World soon. Riko is less than thrilled about this, though she naturally keeps it quiet.
Anyway, as for the final lesson, it involves flowers. Not just any ordinary flowers, though – we are still in the Magic World for the time being.

Joltflower

The Joltflower – blooms with a shocked scream when it senses magic

Each of the five students are given their own Joltflower, which they have to protect. Their is a sixth Joltflower, which a teacher has. The goal is simple: only one student has to make the teacher’s flower bloom. If a student’s flower blooms, they are out. The teacher they’re going up against?

Liz

It’s Liz

Oh, and if all the students’ Joltflowers bloom, they will have to repeat the year.

We cut to the bad guys, where they begin making preparations to go to the Non Magic World where they suspect a Linkle Stone will appear. They aren’t the only ones to think that, though we’ll get to that later.

Anyway, the lesson begins. Despite their growth, Jun, Kei and Emily are eliminated fairly quickly. The whole students vs. teacher thing is actually quite a fun watch – it may not be the typical type of battle you’d expect from PreCure, but it is still pretty great.
Mirai’s focus on passing the test had convinced Riko that she just wanted to return home as soon as she could. Of course, that’s not true.

After that exchange, Mirai and Riko get back on their brooms and go after Liz’s flower.

The final clash

Ah, a magical ‘single-stroke battle’

I’ll let you guess who this blooming Joltflower belongs to

The final lesson concludes, and then Batty shows up – which means it’s monster of the week time.

Monster of the Week

A Bug and Grass type, I reckon – gonna keep referencing Pokémon for these

Whilst the teachers and students retreat, Mirai and Riko transform. They go for Ruby Style this time, because everyone knows that Fire is super effective against Bug and Grass.

PreCure vs Yokubarl

Cure Miracle and Cure Magical hold hands throughout the entirety of the fight

Anyway, Miracle and Magical say how they can do anything when they’re together, and promptly defeat the Yokubarl. As villains tend to do, Batty retreats right afterwards.

After that, it’s time to say goodbye. Everyone except for Riko goes to see Mirai off. The deputy headmaster presents Mirai with a student handbook, and the students have a present for Mofurun too.

Mofurun's present

A hat and cloak, just like the Magic Academy students

The headmaster and his crystal ball talk with Riko, asking if she should have gone to see Mirai off. Riko says that they’ve already said goodbye. However, the headmaster detected the presence of another Linkle Stone, and it’s not in the Magic World…

Mirai tries to keep cheerful on her way home, but…

Tearful Mirai

Parting from the one you love isn’t easy

Mirai doesn’t stay sad for long, though, as a familiar face shows up.

You can’t keep Mirai and Riko apart

I think this speaks for itself

Well, that concludes the Magic World stuff for now. The first half of the episode was a fun final lesson, and the second provided plenty more shipping material for Mirai and Riko. I’d have to say that this episode was pretty great.

Next time, we go back into the Non Magic World. I’m a little sad that we’re leaving the Magic World behind, but Mirai and Riko are still together and that’s all that really matters when it comes down to it.
