Added DiffLines:

* BoundAndGagged: Tart after being captured.


* AnachronismStew: The magical girl outfits the main cast and the antagonists wear get a bit of an ArtisticLicense here, as while everyone wears clothing that is appropriate for the time period of the story's setting, the magical girl outfits look like modern cosplay costumes that would be tailor-made in the 21st Century. And even then, the design styles of these outfits would fit more in the 1800s than they would in the 1400s. Likely [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because they're magical in nature and can be changed on a whim.

* AmazonBrigade: Tart's magical girl group.

to:

* AmazonBrigade: Tart's magical girl group. The villainous English magical girls are also this.


Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: A lot of the nobles, from both French and English, are more badass than they look. Both Gilles de Rais and Arthur de Richmont are very foppish and flamboyant, but they hold their own in battle and good in court intrigue. John Talbot looks like a standard AristocratsAreEvil FatBastard, but he shows himself as a strong warrior who swings {{BFS}} one-handed, a competent general, FatherToHisMen, a WorthyOpponent, and GracefulLoser.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the manga's splash pages is showing the three England magical girl sisters, with a script of Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro in French written on about the banter between Figaro and Suzanne discussing about love. Apparently, too much love is never enough, [[spoiler:not too mention too little, as Corbeau finds out]].

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: For a definition of hero, as Cube is a loyal companion of Tart's group. Ever wonder if a potential magical girl gets too curious about the magical girl system, exploits the Incubators' CannotTellALie policy by asking things most girls won't, and wishes for something that screw the system badly after knowing the context? [[spoiler:Queen Isabeau, [[RedBaron the Woman Who Sold Her Nation]], did just that and transcended the magical girls, the witches, and the Incubators to become a personification of evil because of multiple events that she arranged]]. The Incubators are forced to cooperate with magical girls without questions just so they can salvage anything from the system.


Added DiffLines:

* RealEventFictionalCause: Because of the amount of magic exist in the story and magical girls are fighting out in open, there are a lot of things that are interpreted differently by the story because of it. Both Charles VI and Charles VII were driven mad because their wife/mother Isabeau's magic is playing with their lives, William Glasdale was found dead in Loire River not because he fought with Jeanne d'Arc but because he spoke out against Corbeau and she killed him as an example, Jeanne was executed despite being successfully rescued by the French Army because she chose to lest her witch will destroy the entire Europe.
