It is the veteran magical girl Kyouko Sakura of Puella Magi Madoka Magica fame that gets a cosplay outing today, courtesy of Japanese ero cosplayer Ushijima Iiniku.
Of course, being known particularly for her ero cosplay shoots, Iiniku has gone and made Kyouko’s attire a lot more revealing – by completely dropping her front skirt. In other words, not so much a magical ‘girl’ any more…
Kyouko is a veteran magical girl who comes to the city following Mami’s death. Her distinguishing features include long red hair, fangs, and a voracious appetite, almost never being seen without food. She came from a poor church family, and used her wish so that people would listen to her father’s preaching; when her father learned of this, however, he went mad and killed everyone in his family aside from Kyouko. As such, Kyouko decided only to use her magic for herself from this point on, since using it for others will only cause despair.
Having grown up in a poor family, she often has to steal food and hates people who waste it, a logic she also applies to grief seeds, as she only goes after fully grown witches.
Kyouko has been a magical girl much longer than the others, and thus is more skillful; she wields a spear which can extend itself, split into multiple sections, and produce a ball at the end of a chain, which can constrict and hit others at the same time. She also has the ability to put up barriers to protect others or keep them from interfering. She initially clashes with Sayaka, but after learning the truth about soul gems, she sympathizes with her and tries to help her. This is partially because Sayaka reminds Kyouko of her past self, as she too had made a wish for another person’s sake and tried to fight for justice. Thus, she wants to stop Sayaka from making what she believes is the same mistake and advises her to live a life of selfishness. Even though Sayaka thanks Kyouko and admits that she misunderstood her, Sayaka refuses to abandon her ideals of justice.
After Sayaka becomes a witch, Kyouko becomes determined to save her and restore her to normal. In the end, though, Kyouko becomes tired of her pain, gives up her previous ideals and abandons her outlook self-preservation, and chooses to destroy herself along with Oktavia, in an attempt to both find peace in death and make sure that Sayaka will not die alone, by overloading her soul gem to create a massive explosion that kills them both; ultimately misunderstanding Sayaka’s ideals towards magical girls, of how magical girls should survive to the best of their abilities and kill as many witches as they can.
