If you don't like something, move on, instead of pestering about people who do like it in the official thread....

Hahahahaha! That never happens here.

The Faust quote does make me suspect that all is not right with that contract. Giving up your life for one wish is just too much.

- 2 episodes and madoka still not henshin
- could it be that they planned to use MAGIA as an insert song not ending?
- mami's way to use her flintlocks is just like what i have imagined

For the first point, it's clear that being a magical girl in this case requires a little bit more than airing after Kamen Rider. Give it time.

For the second point, it's labeled as an ending, of course it's meant to be an ending. The ED animation just isn't ready yet.

I was actually hoping she would speak up during those telepathy moments and say that she could hear everything they were saying.

Are witches actual people and you only see some illusion thing like in this episode? Or are they just weird psychedilic creatures? I'm hoping it's the former.
Some folks have theorized that the Soul Gems would turn into Grief Seeds if they went too long without being "cleansed" like Mami's was this time. If so, then that creature we saw was likely an ordinary girl, once.

it's not a matchlock. matchlocks have, well, a match.

the "match" is a smoldering piece of rope

its more similar to a flintlock, although really, its a magical anime gun



its not the same, in that the hammer just hits a gem or something instead of igniting gunpowder, but Mami's doesn't use gunpowder I assume.

I was digging the papercraft enemies, but after seeing it again this week, I'm not so sure anymore. The atmosphere and music was tight, but boss itself was not. I also, agreed that the papercraft boss's interaction with the characters looked rather awkward and unnatural. It was just hard to take that "witch" seriously when it looks like a poor animated papercraft thing majigy that is only moving at like 3 to 4 FPS.


It could just be SHAFT's attempt at doing something unique or......they could just be lazy and cutting corners.

Well it wouldn't be Shaft it wasn't bizarre. The underlying concept behind the show is still pretty stock as most magical girl shows are, but at the least the show manages to set itself apart with a distinctly unique artistic style, great music and pretty impressive animation. If Shaft was doing some of their usual corner-cutting animation techniques, it isn't as obvious as other works.

Again given the amount of work they're putting into this, I'm guessing they're betting a lot on this show's success. As it is, it looks to be a pretty good hit than a big miss

I wouldn't be surprised if, along these lines and assuming this was true, it was possible to dump darkness from your Soul Gem into another Soul Gem even if it hasn't become a Grief Seed, basically cannibalizing another magical girl. That could make for some pretty sick developments.

The other possibility I had was that the Grief Seed (described as a "witch egg") actually only becomes able to produce more witches when a magical girl feeds it darkness from her Soul Gem. Like... they fertilize it, kind of. In that case, the magical girls are being used by the witches for their reproductive cycle (the obvious implication being that Kyubey is a witch or on their side).

This episode was pretty awesome. Mami looked incredibly cool when fighting the witch with her muskets.

I still feel like Kyuubey and Mami are hiding something, and that maybe Homura is a good person who tried to warn Madoka about the truth of being a mahou shoujo.

I got every impression this episode that Madoka herself actually thinks this, too.

well only time will tell if Homura is a Dark Hero
and her goal is to not let any other girls become mahou shoujo because of the theory of equilibrium and the curse

and kyubey is a freaking demon in a cute rabbit costume

and we get to see a GOOD ENDING WITH ALL OF THEM IN A SOMEWHAT SHOUJO-AI relationships

Her mother seems like quite the ruthless corporate shark. She even scared poor Madoka. At least that explains why their bathroom is so huge. They must be rich. I wonder if we are going to get a "bathroom scene" every episode.

Even with all the explanation I was still complete absorbed by the show. A first time for a magical girl show to have this effect on me. Maybe its because theres an air of creepiness about the show.

if last episode the blond magic girl use gates of babylon gun version then this episode she just used unlimited gun works. That battle was pretty cool, complete with awesome music.
