Spell Card 027
操符「乙女文楽」[1] (Soufu "Otome Bunraku")
Puppeteer Sign "Maiden's Bunraku"
Owner
Alice Margatroid
Stage 3 — Hard
Spell Card Pattern Description
Alice throws a large bubble-like blue bullet to a random spot below her, which will quickly explode into multiple blond dolls with blue dresses that fly in random directions. Each of them will then shoot straight lines of blue bullets in random directions, create a burst of red bullets that fall down, and shoot a red laser downwards in a direction close to one of their lines of blue bullets. The dolls can be damaged and destroyed to stop them from shooting, as early as the red bullets. They can't be destroyed before they shoot the blue bullets.

Red laser, blue trail, red snow.

Spell Card 029
蒼符「博愛の仏蘭西人形 -Easy-」 [2] (Soufu "Hakuai no Furansu Ningyou")
Blue Sign "Fraternal French Dolls -Easy-"
Owner
Alice Margatroid
Stage 3 — Easy
Spell Card Pattern Description
Four intangible blond dolls with blue dresses will spin around Alice starting from a random position, and then shoot a single blue arrowhead bullet. This bullet will then multiply into white arrowhead bullets that go back towards Alice, and these in turn, will multiply into red arrowhead bullets that form one of 3 static patterns in a cycle, and continue to spin. Alice will then move and return, which will not affect the position of the dolls when they shoot the first wave of blue bullets. When the 3 patterns have fully cycled, the dolls will once again shuffle their position and start the cycle again.
Editor's ZUN-style Comment
A circle of dolls fire shots.
Then they split twice. Be careful.
