This has been nagging me for quite a while. In the Mugen Academy musicals, both of them, Cyprine does a move that sounds to me like マグルドライブ magurudoraibu. (The actress from MugenK seems to purse her lips at the end, hinting for the 'bu' sound).

I have not been able to find anything conclusive on what it could mean. However, it seems that マグル maguru is the approximation for Muggle, coined by J. K. Rowling that means a person with non-magic blood. ドライブdoraibu can mean 'drive'.

Cyprine being a Witch, there seems to be reason to think the reference to Harry Potter might be intentional, and that she performs a move called Muggle Drive. Anyone have any other thoughts?

I was going to say "Mandragora Buster" and I realized you were talking about myu. What part was it in? If you have one of the downloaded vids, can you give a time stamp?


hmm Havn't seen it.. but it's not, maybe, 'Magus?'

Mandragora Buster is Tellu's move (the green witch), and she does it in the first act.

Cyprine (the dark blue witch with the staff) does the move in the second act when the four soldiers have been talking with their counterparts (Mars - Eudial, Venus - Mimete, Mercury - Viluy, Jupiter -Tellu). Cyprine comes out of the floortrap at about 1:25:20 in the original Mugen and at 1:30:20 in MugenK.

There's no 'su' sound, but it does begin with 'magu', so it might be some form of Magus. However... Cyprine isn't a Magus yet, only Kaolinite is. Hmmm...

I've never seen a sailormoon musical before, so I wouldn't know b/ I will say that a reference to Harry Potter would seem kind of odd and seems more characteristic of a crossover fanfic.
