In any case, anybody has any insight on the details about the new Isle of Wight manga? I googled...

I think we can all agree that Madoka is kinda on the weaker end of both the "do the logical thing" and the "never look back" spectrums.


Do we really have any idea about how the whole thing...

Oh come on. I was hoping for a twist in this show that would surprise me. Were this an M. Night Shyamalan movie, I would almost be hoping that there's no twist because that would surprise me (or of...

Well, I did say something like "the show built on the expectation that Kyubey is evil so much" in the other thread. I don't know if that's the same as "blatant pushing" in your book.

Er, I only used "ominous lighting" as an offside remark (that's why it's in brackets). Furthermore, I hardly think that him not changing expression is an obvious sign of evil. I didn't even think of...

Well, I think Kyubey being non-evil but amoral and efficient recuiter (for example) is already plenty disturbing and different from any other magical familiar out there.

In any case. A huge speculation a day before a new episode!...
