The new S-rank battlesuit Miracle ☆ Magical Girl, Sirin, is a Mech-type Fire damage dealer who wields a chakram. While in battle, she can transform the chakram into scissors, and simultaneously restore Starry Faith that leads to the reduction of damage taken while sustaining her Iron Body state.

One of the collab outfits is [Burning Rescue Soul] for Ai’s Chrono Navi, and it takes significant design cues from Galo, another character from PROMARE. While keeping her iconic red pants, the upper part of the outfit draws inspiration from Galo’s mecha design. Notably, the horns on Ai’s head are made to resemble alarm lamps, which are based on the first form of Galo’s mecha and his role as a firefighter. Besides, the mecha skirt on her back is inspired by Galo’s mecha helmet.

The other collab outfit is [Born in Flames] for Herrscher of Flamescion. The overall design gives off a punk vibe. Her distinctive cape is a fusion of her own fiery attributes and the angular, vibrant flames unique to the animation in PROMARE. The style and color scheme, along with elements like her bow tie and cyan accents on her greatsword, draw inspiration from Lio, a character in PROMARE. Both outfits will be available in the Outfit Shop, with limited-time discounts during the event.
