Operation Capture Baba Yaga Castle Arc (anime)

In the anime, At some point after the relaying of Arachnophobia's madness relay base devices are scattered throughout the world, she sends more post cards to Maka, one in particular that had the world "courage" ("شجاعت", "šajāʿat") written in Persian.[11][12]


  • The erroneous belief that Maka's mother is named Kami comes from a mistranslated Japanese etiquette. A wife that is no longer present, either due to divorce or death, is often referred to as "motokamisan" (roughly meaning "ex-wife") in lieu of their actual name.
