As a treat to you description readers:
Matoimaru has a lot more invested in her design than you might think at first glance. It was actually kinda fun doing the research for this one. I do wish that maybe she had a little more to do with her other hobbies. She says she’s into soccer but her legs are still kinda spindly, and I would’ve loved to see a Sakura flower crown or have them falling with her in her E2 art to represent her floral arrangements.

At first I wasn’t actually sure she fit the Ushi Oni description but there are two things that really solidified it. The first being that her name in the files is “gyuki” which is another name for an Ushi Oni. The second is that on closer inspection of her E2 art you can actually see the spider legs that Ushi Oni are more commonly depicted with behind her own legs under her hair.

The artist definitely did a really good job with Matoimaru and my gripes with her are basically nitpicks, but they threw me off enough that I felt justified giving her an A- over a full A.

I couldn’t really figure out if there was significance to her name though. Like Matoi means clothes; I know that from Kill la Kill, and maru means circle or cycle. But I don’t think circular clothing has anything to with her if I’m translating literally… Unless they’re just making a joke about her boobs…

I like the existence of the manual subtitle box and it’s here to stay, but it still takes work to do, so please appreciate its existence. Thanks.
