Madoka Magica Drama CD 01

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Remembering the halcyon days when we first met…
  • LOL, first thing upon starting Drama CD? Black cat from OP. So… the black cat DOES exist!
  • Drama CD is set in original timeline. Homura is Moemura and Madoka is just your average junior Puella Magi.
  • Moving on.. events are the same as episode 10, Moemura introduced to the class, etc. etc.
  • Ah, original Madoka knows of the black cat, even gave it a name, “Amy” as well. Looks like the cat is a regular visitor around campus. Madoka and Homura bond over the black cat d’awwww.
  • ( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \/ \, Sayaka stole Hitomi’s math notes to help out Homura and Madoka.
  • P.E. Time; poor Homura pushed herself too far and collapsed :( Madoka brings her to the nurse station.
  • Homura launches in to a tirade about herself being useless, Madoka encourages her and uses a little magic to give her a “boost”.
  • Homura feels better, goes back to try the high jumps, clears the bar the first time, but magic goes berserk when she tries it again.
  • Madoka calls for Mami’s help to stop Homura’s legs who have gone berserk. With her help, Homura is saved, but she collapses again.
  • Unconscious, the Arc of Triumph Witch invades her psyche, playing on the negative memories.
  • Homura wakes up to a conversation of Mami lecturing Madoka about misuse of magic. Not understanding the conversation, Homura heads back.
  • Witch attacks, events are the same as episode 10.
  • Mami, Madoka and Homura retire to Mami’s house. Conversation about Puella Magi. Expanded from episode 10 a little:
    • Walpurgisnacht is described as a festival of witches.
    • Madoka also apologises for the events earlier in the afternoon with Homura’s legs going berserk.
    • Madoka invites Homura to become a Puella Magi as well, Mami warns her about the risks as usual.
  • Madoka and Homura walk home together. Madoka shares about her sense of purpose after becoming a Puella Magi with Homura, but tells her to consider it properly as well. Homura promises to think about it thoroughly first.
  • Madoka and and Homura meet Amy.
  • Madoka’s wish in the original timeline was to save Amy who was ran over by a car.
  • Madoka wonders if Mami will scold her for squandering her wish to save a cat. Homura says she’s a very kind person in return.
  • Cute moments with cat and Homura… maa~
  • Next(?) day; very big storm happens. Homura remembers about Madoka warning her to not go out on a very stormy day. Madoka also didn’t attend school earlier. Homura googles up Walpurgisnacht.
  • Worried, Homura goes in search of Madoka. Meets up with Amy who ‘guides’ her.
  • Homura monologues in an ominous manner. Drama CD ends.

Oh man, I was wondering what would the Madoka Drama CD in the first Blu-ray volume be like, and I’m glad it’s not some fanservice thing. Instead we get an expansion of what happened in the original timeline from Homura’s perspective and we finally get to know what the heck that black cat in the OP was for! Yeaaaaaaaah!

This just makes me wish that my secret dream of a Madoka Magica movie project expanding on episode 10 will come true. Seriously, I want to know more about Homura’s past and her timeline traversals.

EDIT: LOL, I just realised that the black cat IS Aoi Yuuki’s own cat, Eimi. www

    Not a troll cat? Well now everything makes sense in Madoka.

    You guys didn’t read Urobuchi’s interviews, huh?
    The black cat was something that Shaft randomly added to the OP. Later they asked Urobuchi to write it into the drama cd.
    I like that he cleared what was Madoka’s wish in the first timeline. At least it’s better than wishing for CAKII.

    Could it be more than a coincidence that Yuuki Aoi’s (Madoka) cat whom she seems to love very much is black and named Eimi?

    Love the cat, I don’t want that cat to die.
    Enters QB, do you want to revive the cat, just form a contract with me
    Please revive the cat, with my own hands.
    The cat is revived, by the way I’m Majin Boo actually, time to turn you into a Cookie.

    They should make a OVA version of this drama CD for more profit.

    Yes, OVA about this! And thanks so much for telling the events, wouldn’t have known about this.

    That…was adorable yet sad at the same time(Near the end.)

    Note: The Drama CD also comes with the new ED(For eps 1-2, that is.) It makes the show light and cheerful(Except for Homura, of course.)

    If I remember right, the next CD featured with the BDs is the OST. That would be nice.

    I can’t finish the summary, since I was distracted by this bit:

    >P.E. Time; poor Homura pushed herself too far and collapsed :( Madoka brings her to the nurse station.
    >Homura launches in to a tirade about herself being useless, Madoka encourages her and uses a little magic to give her a “boost”.

    Doujins where?

    Madoka’s character song nearly killed me. Stupid moe Madoka.

    Wait… Did that black cat exists and its name is Amy?

    MOAR I wish I could get that CD
    Urobuchi has lost all credit, I thought he said the black cat was some unrelated thing

    Urobuchi was apparently asked to retcon the cat in to the Madoka continuity for the sake of the fans.

    Wait…if this was released with the fist DVD, then won’t the poor people who bought the DVD before watching it be really spoiled?

  17. Fencedude Said,

    By and large the JP BD/DVD releases assume that everyone buying them watched the show already.

    ……..What a STUPID way to waste a wish.

    Sorry, I’m just that kind of person. Cycle of life and everything.
