what happened to her?
Oriko killed her. See the orb stuck in her chest? It's Oriko's weapon of choice.
Considering how soul gems are confirmed to work wouldn't this just knock her out until her soul gem replenishes the wound? Otherwise if shes despairing over death she should have witchified. The only way to really kill a magical girl is the destruction of her soul gem, while this is a fatal wound to a normal human, she shouldn't be instant killed by a orb in the chest.
Alternatively she could have lodged the orb right through her soul gem and the detransformation would be confirmed her death.
I say without reading the newer chapters of Oriko. Without spoiling can someone answer if this death breaks the magical girl rules established in the source material or if it follows them?>>14276
In Oriko a magical girl can get a mortal wound and still die. Another example had Kirika stab a magical girl through the head (they died) and snap another one's neck (they died).
Thats… kind of lame tbqh.
I mean, that's the whole point of soul gems to begin with, to keep the girl able to fight. Keeping the "if the girl knows the truth she can save herself from instant death but if not she despairs over her death and becomes a witch" would he an interesting "they haven't witchified… how did they know the truth?" Plot point.
Just killing them like normal humans is very…. meh. I can get behind destroying a vital body part in order to hit their gem without resistance though.
