"Himeji", not "Himaji". Also, someone hasn't read the "Gender" section of my profile

Anyway, I'll just be saying to you all "I told you so" then

It's rather you (and many, if not most others) who take everything at face value and go, "Oh noes, he's got evil red eyes! He *must* be evil!"

I alos never said that I trusted Kyuubee. I only said that, the way he is presented, it would be way too obvious for him to be evil, and with the staff going for the non-obvious solutions, it would be odd if he actually was evil.

It would be refreshing to see how that played out even though it might be difficult to execute well. I'm holding the staff of this show to a high standard (of unpredictability among other things), and that's a compliment to them.
Yes, most likely no obvious or black-and-white solutions here.

Either that, or she wishes the time being turned back to where mami is still alive, so she can warn her.

No. The grannies were too frail, slow and weak to stand a chance. Assuming that the mahou shoujo in question managed to live through the teen, adulthood, and physically declining years.

I guess, when in doubt "Excelion Buster" the room... and to be extra safe add on a "Starlight Breaker ex" for good measure.

Imo, this is one of the worst possible prediction that I can take;

1. Sayaka heals his boy friend.
2. Mami return as a witch, kills that boy friend.
3. Sayaka rages and tries to stop Mami, but got killed anyway.
4. Homura kills Mami witch version in front of Madoka's eye.
5. This time SAYAKA returns as a witch, then kills Madoka's family.
6. Madoka is now crazy, accepts evil Kyuube's offer, then kills Sayaka.
7. Homura kills madoka, in order to prevent world destruction.
8. Madoka becomes witch, and kills Homura.
9. World destruction, Madoka suicides.
10. Kyuube wins the bet and creates another world in order to do his fun game again.

THE END.

I like your idea.

I really don't know what direction this anime will take, but considering Gen is writing it, I expect him to do what he does best.

Definitely. I am confident this series will come through in the end. It will of course have it's weak points, but the story will definitely be awesome.

Shaft (Shinbo) + Urobushi , great combo !
I won't deny it , after watching 3 ep , this anime looks awesome with an interesting dark plot.

and you never read Shakespeare, then.

It seems like you are ignoring explanation that everyone said about Kyuube and such, since there is clearly more to Kyuube than just having 'red eyes'...

A lot of people in this thread seem to know Urobuchi either through hearsay or possibly just Saya no Uta.

I really doubt he'll go for a bad end. A bittersweet end, maybe, but almost none of Urobuchi's stories have a completely dark ending.

Spoiler for Saya no Uta spoilers:


That's not to say that there isn't going to be a whole lot of blood and tears along the way, mind you. It's still Urobuchi we're talking about here.

I found this tidbit from reading on Christian Anime Alliance, courtesy of Blkmage.

A charlotte is a type of dessert that can be served hot or cold. It can also be known as an "ice-box cake". Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies are used to line a mould, which is then filled with a fruit puree or custard. It can also be made using layers of breadcrumbs.

Spoiler:

I can definitely see Madoka having a similar theme, especially with the various references and correlations to Faust. Urobuchi tends to leave a light at the end of the tunnel, even if it's very faint or you have to turn your head a bit to see it.

just finished episode 3.

and man...

Mami got punked.

Kind of hot how she became dinner though.

Anyway, expected it to get this kind of seriously soon or later.

Also, that bastard Kyibei is probably behind everything.

I should have posted this earlier, but this is the first scene I thought of when I saw Mami's death. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCqJmmDONgU

I know most of you guys here have already viewed this one, but hell i've just found it out today, and lets just say, it disturbed the hell out of me.

Not to mention others cryptic message from episode 1-3, i wish i can understand it while watching it, it adds more to the creepy and dark atmosphere.

This was a great episode, and now has me hooked on the series, even if I was spoiled on Mami's death, I wasn't expecting it to be executed so well.

Homura had time to shine by using the exploding clones, so overall I look forward to watching this series in full, I'm hoping it continues to grow darker and darker.

Homura is my favorite character so far.

9/10
