Depending on where you are in the world, *Magia Record*’s streaming availability tends to be pretty good. You can watch it on [Crunchyroll](https://www.crunchyroll.com/series/G6QWDD096/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story), HiDive ([S1](https://www.hidive.com/tv/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story), [S2](https://www.hidive.com/tv/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story-season-2-the-eve-of-awakening-), [S3](https://www.hidive.com/tv/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story-final-season-dawn-of-a-shallow-dream-)), Wakanim ([DE](https://www.wakanim.tv/de/v2/catalogue/show/599/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story-omu/season/1081/staffel-1), [FR](https://www.wakanim.tv/fr/v2/catalogue/show/592/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story/season/1073/saison-1)) or [Amazon Prime Video](https://www.amazon.com/-/de/dp/B09PYSGLTP/) (Amazon US seems to be missing the last 5 episodes from what I can see, Amazon DE has all of [S1](https://www.amazon.de/dp/B0B8JDBJTD/), [S2](https://www.amazon.de/dp/B0B8MTR7JS/) and [S3](https://www.amazon.de/dp/B0B79Z4L4D/)). The show is also listed on [Funimation](https://www.funimation.com/shows/magia-record-puella-magi-madoka-magica-side-story/) if you still have an account there. See [LiveChart.me](https://www.livechart.me/anime/3495/streams) for their list of streaming options. Lastly, there have been Blu-ray and DVD releases in Japan, North America, Germany, Australia, and probably other places.

**Added note:** People have pointed out to me that from around the middle of season 1 onwards, you are going to see increasing quality differences between the TV broadcast version and the Blu-Ray version of the show. These differences will increase in number and severity through later seasons, sometimes with entire shots missing. Many streaming sources, notably Crunchyroll, only offer the TV version. If you’ve enjoyed the show so far and you would like to experience the rest in the most complete version available, it may be worth double-checking if you can get your hands on the Blu-Rays.

### Questions of the day

1. Yachiyo and Mifuyu clearly have a complex history. What do you make of their current dynamic? Who’s lying and about what?
2. Do you have any funny (or if you want, not so funny) stories about gift giving that went badly?
3. Speculation time: What was the thing with Yachiyo and the mirror about?

Please note: As with almost everything else in a rewatch (except the spoiler policy), these questions are an entirely optional thing and you are encouraged to comment whether or not you feel like answering them. Their main purpose is to act as a discussion prompt and a starting point for people who are unsure what to say about the episode.

### Characters

### Visuals of the day

[Here are your VOTD entries for yesterday’s episode!](https://magireco.fosterforest.eu/votd/s1e10/) Please let me know if I’ve missed anyone’s.

### Spoiler policy

As usual, any spoilers for future episodes must be tagged in accordance with [the subreddit rules](https://www.reddit.com/r/anime/wiki/rules). For the spoiler prefix tag, I recommend using the full `[Magia Record]` or a shorthand like `[MR]`. You can include specific episode numbers if you think it’s helpful.

Like the show itself, the spoiler policy will assume that you’re familiar with the *Madoka Magica* main series, which means that comparisons with themes and plot points from over there as well as speculation based on knowledge from PMMM are fair game and do not need separate spoiler tags. **If you have not seen *Madoka Magica*, please be aware that the *Magia Record* rewatch threads will contain untagged PMMM spoilers.**

When you’re tagging a spoiler, please think about whether its presence is too strong of a hint for first time watchers and consider moving it to the end of your comment or skipping it entirely. Seeing something like “Aw, they’re getting along so well! [MR season 2 episode 8] >!I hope you didn’t expect an actual spoiler behind this.!<” is no fun.

If you’re posting spoilers for the game or other media (e.g. the manga), make sure your tag makes it obvious.

I intend to report any untagged or wrongly tagged spoilers I see.

### Tomorrow’s questions of the day

For those who want to prepare their comment in advance:

1. [MR] >!Do today’s revelations about Yachiyo’s past change your impression of her? Do they make her behavior more understandable?!<
2. [MR] >!Iroha and friends technically fell asleep during a lecture today. Has that ever happened to you?!<
3. [MR] >!Speculation time: Feel like guessing what will happen in the season finale?!<
