There's also a difference in chapter 4. When Madoka says that she will never forget Homura or Mami, Homura thanks her and warns about her kindness in the anime. In the manga, she says "there's no way that you would remember..."

The publishers didn't expect the show to be that hugely popular.

lol that's true. Same thing happened when Bakemonogatari 1st volume BD was shipped only about 40,000, which caused 'sold-out' everywhere in the store. Even when they increased stock a bit more for Mayoi volume, it was still not enough and ended up being out-of-stock again.

I'm highly anticipating vol.1 BD/DVD sales for Madoka. 90 thousand is extremely high knowing how everyone who bought the manga must have been watching the original series.

Edited: Sales of original animation comics since 2004;

Wow...... 90 thousand is actually extremely high for original animation comics, and that's only the 3rd week + re-shipping.

Here is comparison to Hidamari;

Apparently she thought "If I've got a ribbon, I might as well put it to proper use"

Btw, the anime ending has been pretty much analyzed and sorted out by now, hasn't it?

So why do you think Madoka had to kill herself? Simple. Because she's also not an exception and that's why her wish was well thought out because her wish ultimately defeats herself becoming a witch at the cost of herself.

And seriously if a lot of people are able to notice that Madoka was getting stronger each loop even before ep11 and ep12 aired then the problem is with your lack of perception. The explanation in ep11 was well thought out too. It explains why a plain girl like Madoka had so much potential rather than just Madoka being randomly special.

sigh.... http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost...&postcount=296

What you seem to fail to realize here is while the ending may not be a bad end where all the characters die it's also not an all is bright and sunshines/ponies/rainbows ending. The universe still maintains balance.

Nah, people in the ep 10 discussion thread saw that Madoka was getting more powerful, and thought that it was a direct result of something accumulating over the time loops

The third confrontation, Madoka was able to kill Walurgi's Night in one shot.

Homura's repeating of events may correlate with Madoka's increasing power.

However the reverse effect is that everytime she becomes more powerful, she will become a more dangerous witch. Since the fate of the MS is fixed, Maokda could survive W-night but still end up a world destroyer a few years down the road.

If Madoka can vaguely recall what happens from the previous time loops, then maybe she can draw power from her other selves as well.

Thread search is your friend. Of course, I was one of the people who disagreed with the above idea, but you can't really say it was impossible to know Madoka was getting more powerful when a whole bunch of people figured it out after episode 10.
