PvE Stories Pros and Cons
Mayu's Connect allows her to serve in a very similar role to Madoka, being able to quickly boost the MP of her teammates and bring out their Magias. Her Connect gives slightly less of a raw MP boost than Madoka's, but it has the additional Accele UP effect, meaning it has a greater maximum potential for MP restoration. It also swaps Madoka's HP restore for a damage boost, giving her more of an offensive focus, which may be a positive or a negative depending on the circumstances.
Much more Fragile than Madoka
Mayu has a much higher Attack stat than Madoka, but as she shares her role of "supporting MP booster", Mayu's much lower Defense and HP typically overshadow this. Mayu desperately wishes she had anywhere near Madoka's staying power, so that she could perform her role for longer.
Magia is Near-Useless
Madoka has an amazing Magia, restoring MP for her entire team and applying a 3-turn Damage Cut to everyone on top of that. It also allows for the famed Doubledoka strategy, with two Madokas together being practically invincible. Mayu's Magia has none of that, the only consistently effective part of it being simple damage. Skill Seal can rarely be useful on bosses, but is extremely situational, and HP Regen is too slow to save you when you need it. This is the biggest part of Mayu's kit that is outright inferior to Madoka.
PvP Mirrors Pros and Cons
Fair Offensive Presence
Mayu's workable Attack and Damage Up Connect mean that she does manage to outshine Madoka a bit in Mirrors, at least. Her stats make her somewhat of a glass cannon, though her attack is slightly disappointing compared to the other glass cannons in the game. She may have a role as MP-restorer in rare Accele team compositions, where her offense-oriented kit makes her more suited to the role than Madoka, in the faster-paced Mirrors battles.
Mayu's offensive stats aren't potent enough for her to really shine, and a great deal of work and luck would be needed to make her MP restoration consistently effective - even on an Accele team. Often, an Accele gorilla would be more beneficial to the team.
Mayu's best option is to attempt to make herself slightly more durable, so she may better serve her team in boosting their MP. Approaching Madoka's level of tankiness may not be possible for her, but every step closer means that she can stay supporting her teammates for another turn longer. Equipping your best defensive Memoria on her is your best option.
While capitalizing more on her attack stat may be tempting, this would do little to help her in her primary role of MP boosting.
