    Lol, rachy. You can also find that from a different pdf:

    I found that a while ago but I think it was just a coincidence and look at the way how the text was produced. Does it imply that the Aki was a doctor?

    Also, I found a 'Akiko Yamaguchi' facebook account:

    http://en-gb.facebook.com/akkoko

    On that page, it mentions "Knows Japanese, English". Our relevant Aki could speak English and Japanese as well. This is probably a coincidence though...
    So many coincidences in the world today!! Argh.

    yup... anime saves the day! this should put all your questions to rest!

    Akiko Yamaguchi/Star Reverie

    The Magical Girl whose voluntary outting and attempted suicide uncovers the existence of Magical Girls to the world and other Magical Girls

    Combat Pragmatist: How many Magical Girl's can you name that use cement trucks to kill a Monster of the Week?
    The closest would be the famously pragmatistic Homura and her oil tanker.

    Driven to Suicide: What starts the whole thing off.

    Iron Woobie: You feel for her, given what she has been through, but there's no denying that she can take it. usually.

    New Powers as the Plot Demands: Subverted - Akiko stopped gaining powers when Damarri died. At the start of the story she's effectively fighting season 3/4 level enemies with only early season 2 equivilant powers.

    Parental Abandonment: Quite literally. The Yamaguchi's thought their daughter was becoming a drug addicted delinquent, what with the unexplained injuries, missed school, being out all hours of the night etc, and basically kicked her out. It'll be interesting if they meet up again after Akiko outs herself as an MG and tries to kill herself on live TV.

    Thanatos Gambit: Akiko's mindset as she prepaired to jump was this: If there are other Magical Girls out there, they'll save me, and help me. If there aren't... Then I won't have to worry about the Nightmare Factory anymore, and I'll have warned the world of their existence.

    Trauma Conga Line: Non-standard example in that the Nightmare Factory's entire plan actually revolves around purposely doing this to Akiko in order to push her into the Type C ending of this trope.

    Triple Shifter: Subverted somewhat in that her Magical Girl activities, and such triple shifting, are a key reason why Akiko's personal life and mental state went to hell.

    Willfully Weak: When she realized that the Nightmare Factory's nightmares were just as strong as she was, Akiko began scaling back on her abilities and became more of a Combat Pragmatist instead.

    you are correct to be confused by my post. i posed an explanation with a link, but got a message that it needed approval before being viewable; hence the crazy talk message above. let me clarify:

    i just realized. i, like some, that i too used to obsess about this death, trying to find the truth to poor aki's death (or possibly life). on a whim, i googled 'akiko yamaguchi' and came up with a website discussing what looks to be a fan based anime collaboration which begins with the main character, akkiko yamaguchi, a magical girl, poised and ready to kill herself by jumping off a high rise building in tokyo.

    Here is the synopsis frpm the website (http://bfp.wikia.com/wiki/BFP_Wiki)

    One night in 2006, a call goes out to NHK and the Tokyo police, giving notice of a suicide jumper from the then-incomplete Tokyo Sky Tower. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be too unusual, except for one small detail: Akiko Yamaguchi, the suicide jumper, is a Magical Girl. She has fought a long, lonely war against Cults, a Circus Of Fear, and the embodiments of fear itself for years and has reached her breaking point. She transforms on live television and takes the plunge. But before she becomes a wet crimson smear on the pavement, a black-clad angel swoops in to save her - Fate Testarossa, with Nanoha Takamachi flying in shortly after.
    In response to the news that they aren't the only ones with magic in the world, Magical Girls and their support groups all around Earth come out of the woodwork and close ranks. However, the forces of darkness are not about to let this new threat balloon any further, and that's not taking into account the reactions of the rest of the world, and factions both mundane and otherwise...

    also, here is the web address for more of a play-by-play... http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7441415/...Fantasia_Unity

    so, i ask: was akiko a magical girl, or what?

    Im interested, tried to follow and am too lazy to do so.

    Do you mind trying to put your thoughts together in english?
    And affirmative action is a very nice term for racial discrimination against better-qualified white people in jobs, employment, promotions and scholarships, and college admittance.

    not at all: in a nutshell - it looks like either someone took akiko's name and situation then created an anime story line with it, or the og akiko read this story line and adopted that persona.

    it's a good story - if you read the last link i posted, you'll see all the similarities.
