Goddess Madoka

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

I have found a goddess and her name is Madoka.

Join the Church of Madoka now.

P.S. Still trying to finish my full post on Madoka’s finale. It’s surprisingly hard on me.

    You know, she seems to be a really stupid god… since I get the impression that QB will undo everything she wished for, and she’ll still never have existed. And then Magical Girls will rise again, and Walpurgis Night will arrive. With only Akemi Homura to stop it.

    I see someone hasn’t watched or figured out the final episode yet.

    I find it funny Sayaka died in the “new world” . She ain’t getting no respect or more like I care for Kyouko feelings. -=x

    Anyway, I’ll wait for your write up. There some things I didn’t get or more like not sure if what I am thinking is right. I am sure if I watch the eps. again I will understand maybe a bit more, but I hope you can patch some things up for me. Either way, I enjoy the series a lot & hope for more stuff from this series even if its the last of it’s anime part.

    I liked the ending when it was called Tenshi no Tamago.

    And this is coming from someone who despises Mamoru Oshii.

    OH MY MADOKA!

    My opinion is what follows. That anime has created a revolution on the concept of Magical Girls. I think that the storyline was really brilliant and touching! I can’t explain well enough how the sentiments flow in this anime. I felt so much empathy for Homura, Sayaka, Kyoko, Mami and Madoka; the last time it had happen to me was when I watched Clannad/Clannad AS. This show really impressed me in different manners. I know that its only my opinion, but again, I think that the ending was great and a wonderful way to show the ultimate commitment of a being for the greater good. That was an amazing experience.

    Mon opinion est se qui suit. Cette anime a créé une révolution du concept des “Magical Girls”. J’ai trouvé que le file de l’histoire était vraiment fabuleux et touchant! Je ne sais pas de quelle façon je pourrais expliquer comment les sentiments nous submerges dans cette anime. J’ai senti tellement d’empathie pour Homura, Sayaka, Kyoko, Mami and Madoka; la dernières fois que cela m’est arrivé c’est quand j’ai visionné Clannad/Clannad AS. Cet émission m’a vraiment impressionné de plusieurs manières. Je sais que cela est seulement mon opinion, mais encore, je pense que la fin était génial et que c’était aussi une façon magnifique de démontré l’ultime engagement d’un être pour le bien commun. C’était une expérience formidable.

    Comparing this to Angel’s Egg?

    At least there weren’t bloody fishermen hunting shadow fish or whatever in Madoka….

    But still, a new religion that must be purged, this is.

    To be frank, I still don’t get the ending after the credits.

    Given that a) Akemi Homura still exists and remembers her, and that b) if QB can reshape reality with wishes, then c) it seems logical to believe that anything he can do (such as create a universe without mahou shoujo) can be undone as otherwise he couldn’t have done it to begin with. It’s not like he was creating a simple chemical reaction here – if this was powered by the same forces that supposedly drove his entropy-reversal machine, these are extremely powerful. And these forces may still exists, as her wish was only for no magical girls on Earth.

    So – before humans, when did the incubator find power sources? He seems to have been at it for while if Cleopatra was mahou shoujo. Akemi’s ability suggests that time is no barrier to his species… so he could undo Madoka’s wish with a reset of the timeline. But her wish negated her own existence explicitly, so…

    My way of thinking is that the Incubators are merely a catalyst for whatever wishes the girls make. So they probably won’t have any way to directly undo Madoka’s wish unless some other Magical Girl wishes the opposite with an emotional potential that is stronger that Madoka’s own.

    Frankly the history of the Incubators are very vague but I presume they have been trying out various other methods to generate energy to reduce entropy. This also brings me to another point about this being bad science and all, but I’ll leave that aside for me.

    Probably the reason why they moved to using human emotional energy is that because it’s something that supposedly defies “entropy” itself depending on the strength of the emotions. Incubator was still affected by Homura’s time travelling ability because it did not recognize Homura at the beginning anyways, only knowing that she somehow has Puella Magi abilities. But probably being a more advanced race, it wasn’t that hard for him to realize her true identity after being turned in to a honeycomb a few times.

    First of all, I want to thank SHAFT for producing this series. It’s a very great privileged for me being so fortunate enough to have watched this awesome show.

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica – a title so befitting the story of a second-year middle schooler Madoka who has a fated encounter one day that begins a new magical girl story .

    Now that I’ve watched the final two episodes, I can now safely say that SHAFT really delivered this time around. Madoka Magica has now become one of those few series that I will remember as an Animation’s(anime) finest . Similar to how I described series like Dennou Coil, and Gundam 00 Season 2 as the shows that really made a huge impression on me on how it completely redefines my anime viewing experience (in the case of Gundam 00 S2, completely get me hooked to mecha genre). Only that Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a tad higher form of those two.

    Don’t forget.
    Always, somewhere,
    someone is fighting for you.
    As long as you remember her,
    you are not alone.

    Kyuubei: are you killing all the witches in one turn?
    Madoka: yeah so?
    Kyubei: thats against the rules of wish

    Madoka: screw the rule im a goddes

    Kurogane: The issue I see is this – we know not all mahou shoujo become witches (at least, Akemi hasn’t) and that Madoka’s wish was specifically to undo witches… since we’ve got Akemi still at the end, and that other witch from the spin-off manga along with the epilogue’s demons. Yes, nobody else before Madoka had wished to undo witches (not having the knowledge)… but that doesn’t mean nobody else had the power either – the reason Kyubei wanted her was because of the amount of emotional energy she’d produce AFTER falling… but from what I recall, wishes aren’t bound by how much emotional energy the mahou shoujo will create through their conversion into witches, only by the wish-maker’s desires.

    So if Kyubey or anyone else decides the new method of gathering energy is inefficient, or at least it’s not ‘pure’ enough, there’s no reason they can’t just go up to a girl and say ‘you know, if you became a mahou shoujo, you could wish for a world where you could go around stopping witches which strip people’s souls’, even if they don’t have the ability to directly undo Madoka’s wish, which I doubt.

    Plus, she sure as hell ended the world and killed her family the way I expected her to. ;) She just remade the world sans herself, afterwards…

    see those things homura throws at kyuubey near the end? those are curse squares that I bet come from those “demons”. that must be their new way of gathering energy. kyuubey doesnt care if what will happen as long as he gets energy. they even said that they arent quite knowledgeable in magic.

    as for sayaka still dead, madoka wished to end the girls before they became a witch hence that history isnt really changed that much, just that theres no witches that come from girls. sayaka in the current time became a witch so she still ends up dead but at least does not fall into despair since madoka showed her how kyousuke was happy and healed. mami and kyouko died fighting witches, take that off and they live.

    The thing is, Madoka’s wish re-created the universe and all parallel worlds from scratch and modified the way Soul Gems work. Kyubei’s entire race now doesn’t know of and can’t conceive of any other way to gather energy besides through using Magical Girls to hunt demons. Remeber how in the end Homura told Kyubei about the old way? He was like “lol nice fantasy, it would be great for us if that is true” the point being, Kyubei himself doesn’t believe in the old way where Magical Girls turned into witches to provide despair energy. He has no incentive to risk his current stable system tricking someone into modifying the entire universe, thus Madoka’s new Magical Girl system will probably remain indefinitely. I mean you could cook up some bs because you are unsatisfied with the ending, but that’s all up to you.
