Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Right at the end of the epi, it seemed Madoka had the idea she could contract and undo what happened to Sayaka. So I wonder if the opening was actually reality, and her wish was something like "I wish this had never happened!" thus putting them back in time. If Homera can manipulate time, maybe that is why she was unaffected. (Or her memories were.) What if ending of the show was this repeating loop and you keep wondering if they are ever going to get out of it? It would rest on Homera because she said she should have also warned Sayaka as well as Madoka.

More QB onslaught...
Now, what a better way to pay homage to the "nefarious one" than by merging him with another famous "manipulator" of a classic series? For those of you who know of what series I speak...well, then you know who he is.

Saw this one and had a good smirk over it...QB style.

"If you feel like dying for the universe, just give us a call."

After hearing that quote and trick Kyoko, I'm pretty sure Kyubey's ass-ery level skyrocketed again with a new wave of QB-bashing.

Looking at Sayaka's world, I was knida expecting something like that, and I kept thinking about the Persona 4 boss battles during the fight scene. Now we have 3 out of the 5 main characters gone after Kyoko pulled off her limit break move to stop witch-Sayaka.

I was actually surprised that the Walpurgisnacht is a witch like I thought. I brushed off that idea when Ossi asked me if I had any idea what the Walpurgisnacht was. Wonder how things are gonna turn out. Modoka in despair now that Sayaka's gone, but what are they gonna do with her body

EDIT: It's kinda late, but did anyone notice in Ep 3 after Homura takes down the witch Charlotte, she undoes the transformation, and transforms again within the next 15 seconds?

Ok after seeing episode 9 it was pretty much "Just as Planed" *in a Light Yagami/Kira voice* for QB here.

So in the end it seems that Modaka is either going to become a magical girl or the whole town while be more or less destroyed. It's a shame that Sayaka was going to end that way and not only that, but I have to agree with what you said on the Kyoko QB conversation Xanadu-san.

Hey, it wouldn't be "Mahou Shoujo MADOKA" if she never became one. It's a bit odd that she's taking so long, though.

Another well-written episode though, great that they didn't come up with some magical excuse to bring Sayaka back. Although I'm expecting wth like that to happen once Madoka becomes a Puella Magi - unless they decide to troll till the end and give us an ending full of despair (or worse yet, cliffhanger for next season).

On the other hand (and out of order), the first impression from the ep was "WHAT. The. F***" kinda feeling. Madoka is now also a creepy sci-fi anime. Damn. Still awesome though. SHAFT is one of (if not "the" - although Sunrise) favourite animation studios of mine, not w/o a good reason. Shows like this just reaffirm this.

QUOTE Modoka in despair now that Sayaka's gone, but what are they gonna do with her body

Feed it to QB?

Noooo, pls nooo, seriously this is one of the best anime's this season. I really hope that the statement "Sadly for detractors, the BPO is run by the broadcasters and very rarely if ever does anything about the crazy complaints it receives." is true. It would really be a big loss if they cancelled Madoka. I was actually oping that they'ed animate the spin-off mangas that were anonunced as well :

Q.B. Is actually pretty honest, which surprised me, well if you ask him for the exact answer. I wonder how Madoka will deal with this Walpurgis-night and all.

LOL I had that in mind after episode 9, I doubt it will get canceled at this point, only 3 episodes to go, also yeah QB was right as to what he said to the girls. They did not ask about what will happen to them if the soul gem was contaminated to the max. Or what the soul gem really was. Since, the what we now know them as "Incubators", QB said they had no emotions build in, so they could not feel bad for doin what they did.

I was a bit right earlier as to what happens when the soul gem is beyond clensing, sad it had to happen to Sayaka. She refused help though so it could not be help, mostly the music like theme to her is from her love to Kyōsuke IMO.

I will miss Kyōko-Chan, one less person to help on the night that will come, I think near the end Madoka will have no choice. As how they showed the beginning of episode 01, but will see if the show gets canceled or not.

I really don't think they'll cancel. it's too far into the series to stop now and I think that there will be more people mad if they did.

Ok the thing with Sankaku some of those... wait let me rephrase that, most of those stories you just take with a grain a salt. I mean they even messed up on the whole Touhou story about it being harder to do anything comercial wise or doujin wise. Although that was just him making sure things don't get his creation into hot water with the way things are now in Japan. Aside from that, the site is a pretty good place to look for pics though.

Honest after the fact with questions that would only occur to you after the fact. Poor girls should have asked to read all the fine print before signing the contract.

While I agree with you, A~san, after hearing his take on things and the way he and his fellow Incubators think...well, he came across as a no-nonsense company man. He has an objective to meet, he will accomplish it even if it kills him, he will arm twist, manipulate, misrepresent, he will get it done, damn it! He will slip, slither, and sweetly smile his way into your will, that is set against his...until his objective is achieved...devoid of emotion.
I can't blame him since he just does not "understand," he just doesn't.

With the shenanigans in the previous episode, I guess it's safe to assume that the "dream" Madoka had in the beginning was Homerun fighting the Walpurgisnacht (I'm tempted to label it as Imari but I'll pass this time).

So basically, what we have is:

Dream=Future (Most likely the events of the Walpurgisnacht.)
Rest of the anime up til now>Past from Homerun's perspective, present world.

I'm assuming that Madoka will contract with QB at that point in the future (Walpurgisnacht) since things seemed to go as QB planned.

QUOTE Madoka is now also a creepy sci-fi anime. Damn.

Had a WTF moment when I realized I was actually watching a sci-fi anime and not a fantasy one.


QUOTE Q.B. Is actually pretty honest, which surprised me, well if you ask him for the exact answer.

Nope.avi

You can tell that he manipulated Kyoko into doing what she did. Now that both Kyoko and Sayaka are gone, Homerun's gonna have a hard time fending off Imari-san (I said it...) without Madoka's help. Madoka will realize that it's either she loses everything dear to her or she becomes a Pylon/Supply Depot for the universe. He even admitted to Homerun in the end that bringing Miki Sayaka back was "impossible".


Oh, and I'm seeing QB as more of a G-man guy now rather than Mephisto, as ImTakes said. Though all the stuff he said about Entropy might also be a lie. I mean, he ATE the grief seeds right? It could be that they actually feed off the energy as opposed to what he claims.

Or maybe the body is just a high-tech super mecha suit that preserves the seeds and their energy to later get it to the home planet. He LOOKED like he "ate it" but nobody knows how that "body" functions at all. Who knows.

You do have a point...he bagged it but did he digest it, is the question, eh?
rolleyes.gif
Interesting, most interesting...well, as this one is down to the wire let's see what transpires as the story continues to unfold more QB mysteries all while Madoka-chan twiddles her thumbs and decides what to do. I cannot imagine her swinging the magical girl way unless she's really pushed into a corner that has no way out...i.e. family threatened, QB makes a deadly play for her witto brother and maybe, tries to eat him?

Gonna be a whopper of a choice, but then again, she may wake up and just say, "Yes, I'll do it by golly!"

Twas mere speculation on my part.

Now that reminds me... Will QB fit into the cosmic horror category?
