Second batch of themed intimate apparel rounds off representation of the hit series’ core cast.
Anime TV series Puella Magi Madoka Magica ends on a bit of an ambiguously bittersweet note. The core conflict of the dark magical girl story is only partially resolved, but thanks to the efforts of its heroines, there’s at least a ray of hope for the future.
That description actually parallels what’s happening with the Madoka Magica lingerie line, Earlier this spring, anime fashion company Super Groupies unveiled bra and pantie sets inspired by character’s Madoka, Homura, and Mami, but as of April 17, they’re no longer available. Still, that doesn’t mean you’re completely out of options, and now it’s time for the final two members of the central cast, Sayaka and Kyoko, to get lingerie sets of their own.
Aside from being in the image colors of their respective characters, the designs feature subtle nods to the series for the enjoyment of sharp-eyed fans. The Sayaka set’s bra features a dangling charm in the shape of the fortissimo musical annotation, which matches the barrette she wears throughout the anime.
▼ The panties, meanwhile, feature an asymmetrical lace accent.
The Kyoko set bra lacks a charm, but instead has a black ribbon at its center reminiscent of the one the character uses to tie her hair up into its customary ponytail.
▼ The panties are also a bit more orthodox than unbalanced Sayaka’s.
Both sets are identically priced at 8,800 yen (US$82) and can be purchased directly from Super Groupies (Sayaka here, Kyoko here) with delivery scheduled for mid-October. Oh, and if you’re ordering, don’t forget your Madoka Magica swimsuit, too.
