Madoka Magica BD Vol. 5 GET!

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Finally, the long awaited blu-ray version of episode 10! Not sure if it was a good or bad thing, but there wasn’t much major changes(as in full redraws, different angles etc etc) in the blu-ray version compared to the TV version, even when I used the original MBS airing. Mostly background changes, adjusted the lighting here and there, but otherwise it’s pretty much the same as episode 10 in the TV version, especially for those who watched the “fixed” airing on Nico/CBC.

Episode 9 had quite a bit though, mainly during Kyoko vs Octavia’s fight. They really went all out to redraw that fight. A lot of fixed backgrounds as well, though most of the meduka moments are left intact, as usual.

The drama CD that came with this BD is probably the best so far, although all three are equally entertaining in their own rights. Farewell Days is actually a prequel of sorts, telling how Kyoko and Mami first met each other, way back when Kyoko first became a Puella Magi. I was quite surprised to know that she mostly learned how to fight properly from Mami herself. For some reason, I always had an impression of her actually becoming a Puella Magi a looooooooong time ago (say, half a century?) thanks to the flashback in episode 7. Turns out she was only ahead of Madoka and co by one year… or maybe they are retrofitting.

Nevertheless, that drama CD really make me want a Kyouko x Mami prequel OVA now. ヽ( >∀<)ノ AHAHA AHAHA AHAHAHAHA One more volume left! Cannot wait for Madoka-sama's episode!

    The drama’s my favorite among the three. I also thought Kyouko was the most veteran among them, but turns out it’s still the oneesama-like Mami. Their little training reminded me of when Mami and Madoka was training Homura in the first timeline, it’s really cute with the attack naming and all. XD

    Rather than an OVA… I want my Meduka Season 2… SHAFT where?

    ‘And I’m Home’ was heartbreaking…

    I was unclear about two major points in the drama CD sequence due to my limited Jp listening comprehension.

    First, how was Kyouko’s doppelganger magic related to what happened to her family?

    Second, was the Walpurgnis Nacht battle plan discussion at the end a flashback?

    @Zyl: the answers at teh link

    the short version is this, Kyoko’s wish gave his papa the power of charming or hallucination (a milder version of Lelouch’s code geass) so people would believe him during his idealistic preaching. Because of that wish Kyoko got a similar version, the power to create illusions or decoys (as in magic that dazzles/confuses/blinds/misleads).
