Gothic wa Mahou Otome, otherwise known as Gomaotsu or Gothic Magic Maiden, is a free-to-play mobage shmup developed by CAVE and released in Japan. It is possible to play outside of Japan however, and the methods for acquiring the game are detailed in the Introduction of the guide. Our guide details every aspect of nearly every menu in the game, in English, with picture references. I hope that it's sufficient for new/interested players to be able to introduce themselves to the game easily, as well as help non-Japanese players of all sorts to clarify what ever menus or buttons may be a mystery to them due to not being able to read the text in the game. If you have any questions or need help with something, feel free to ask within this thread and I'll do my best to help you. There is also a multilingual Steam group for Mahou Otome, which is linked at the very bottom of the guide, that you can join to discuss the game or find other players to chat with.

Link to the English guide. (Updated 4/22/17)

Notice: This guide uses hyperlinks within itself, which is not supported by Google Drive's reader! Follow these steps if you want a better and more dynamic read:

For desktop: Download this guide and drag it to a new tab on your browser or use a standalone reader (suggestion: Adobe Reader). Firefox's reader and standalone readers will take you to the exact line that is hyperlinked, while Google Chrome's reader will only take you to the top of the page.

For mobile: Use a standalone reader (suggestion: Adobe Acrobat Reader).

---

Changelog (4/22/17)

New explanations:
- Shot Test
- Mission Screen (renewal)

Added information not related to the ver1.7 update to the explanations of the following screens:
- During Stages
- Event Types
- Ranking Rewards
- Active Point Milestones

- Familiar Evolution
- ...and more, to a smaller degree.

I'm the editor of this guide, so if anyone has any complaints or suggestions you can also send them to me.
I'm not a native English speaker so grammar advice is very welcome.

Updated guide with a video tutorial link for creating a Japanese Apple account to download Mahou Otome outside of Japan on an iOS device.

Update: Thanks to the Mahou Otome Japanese community on Twitter, all the missing information was explained! However, guilds still can't be explained because guild battles are held at difficult times for the writers to participate.

Thank you! This means a lot to me.

January 24th Update:
- Added "Graviton" to the shot types list (new shot type).

THE GOOD NEWS: I was allowed to enter a guild even though I can only participate on weekends. I didn't like the idea of waking up early on weekends to do guild battles, but because of the recent engagements with the awesome Japanese Mahou Otome community on Twitter, I care even more about the game now than before!
This means that a guild guide will be written! Slowly, but surely!

THE GREAT NEWS: Helping me is none other than the leader of the No.1 S-rank guild of Mahou Otome! The guide will include advice from THE master!

EDIT: There will be a substantial update for Mahou Otome soon. It will alter guild screens, among other things, so the writing of the guild guide is on hold for now.

First of all, thanks for over 1000 views! A few days ago I was happy to know that the @shmups Twitter account wrote a tweet about this guide.
While writing the guild guide, I've made substantial overall adjustments, so I'm going to release this now.

Changelog for the February 1st update:
- Added and revised bits of information on many sections;
- Added "Multi Saber" to the shot types list (new shot type);
- Explained how to utilize hyperlinks within the document on mobile;
- Evened out inconsistent spacing between lines. Some small spacing was kept on pages crowded with information;
- Corrected typos and weird grammar.

So there is an update to the game but I can't figure out how to enable it. When you tap to start the game it brings up a dialog box and upon tapping THAT it shifts you to the App store. But I'm not eeing anywhere you apply the update. It only give sme the option to re-open my previous version 1.05. The app store clearly indicates a 1.06 is up.

You have to download it via the third-party app store you used to download the game to begin with, I'd assume QooApp. If you visit the app's page in QooApp there should be an option to download the update.

Sorry, thought I specified. On iOS. The store is the literal japanese iTunes. The dialog box that comes up DOES does take the user to the Apple app store bit once there it looks like there is no button to download the update...which is typically handled in-app mostof the time.

Cave's FB page confirms in english that there has been an update. But I don't understand japanese to actually navigate the pricess. It doesn't appear to work like iOS updates usually do. The only action button in the store for Gothic wa Mahou Otome opens the one already on the device. And there isn't another new separate app either that I can find.

Added small bits of information to the following explanations:

Important correction

The definition of a familiar's Power has been changed to:
"This value does not relate to the damage done to enemies by this familiar's shot. Each shot type deals their respective amount of damage, regardless of the familiar's Power. Instead, what is important about Power is that it determines the score that you will be getting from destroying enemies, with either the familiar's shot or with an offensive Skill."

Considerable update. The main content of this update is the explanations of the screens that appear upon starting the game for the first time. This part was obvious for me and my friends, but some people may get confused. For that reason, I really think I should have done this sooner!

Changelog:

New explanations:
- Getting Started (screens that appear when first launching the game + tutorial)
- Launch Screen

Added to the explanations of:
- Event Types list: changed the explanation of Election events to "The rules of the latest Election event (second anniversary event, held at the end of March, 2017) differ considerably from the rules of previous two, therefore, for explanations and advice, it is better to contact the writers of this guide."

Other:
- Added "X-plosion" to the shot types list (new shot type)
- The name of the Skill "Familiar Sphere Installment" has been changed to only "Sphere Installment", as in the game
- The name of some shot types have been slightly altered to sound more like their Japanese names, even if it makes little sense in English
- Nitpick: evened out the size of images throughout the guide
- Corrected typos and revised weird grammar

And... the guild guide is still being worked on!

I actually wanted to include that part from the start, but I was never able to get screenshots of the startup screens at the time, so I wasn't able to include it in the original draft for the guide. I'm glad we've got it now.

Massive update! The guild system is explained! I hope more people get to enjoy these daily scoring competitions that I really grew to like.
I've also made other changes, but I forgot to keep a changelog. When I noticed, it was too late. At least I have a brief idea of what most changes were.

Changelog:

New explanations:
- The Guild System (30+ screens), except guild leader functions. I still need to wrap my head around that...

Added little bits of information to the explanations of:
- A few screens

Other:
- Added "Photon Ray" to the shot types list (new shot type)
- Corrected typos and revised weird grammar

The 1.7 update is almost here. I'm ready to write new explanations as soon as possible.

First of all, I'd like to say thanks for over 2000 thread views!
I forgot something important on the last update. The screens that are displayed when not in a guild weren't explained. So, now they are.
The page ended up with a lot of blank space, so I added an introduction to the guild system and a beautiful illustration of Rosa (included in the game).
Other than that, when testing, I noticed that a couple hyperlinks weren't working. I fixed all of them.
Next update: Game version 1.7 and guild leader functions will be explained.
