Kyuube confirmed this last episode then he said his people can extract emotional energy from any human but prefer teenage girls because of they get off the highest levels.

Also some counted the number of times Homura went Quantum Leaped...

Timeline 0: (original timeline)
Madoka-0 and Sayaka-0 become magical girls.
Homura-0 joins their school
Madoka-0 and Sayaka-0 get killed by Walpurga-0
Homura-0 makes a contract and travels back in time
TIME LEAP
Timeline 1: (seen in the intro)
Homura-0 stocks up on guns
Homura-1, Sayaka-1, Mami-1, and Kyouko-1 become magical girls
Sayaka-1 turns into a witch
Homura-0 kills Sayaka-1
Mami-1 goes insane when she realizes they'll all turn into witches
Mami-1 kills Kyouko-1
Madoka-1 kills Mami-1 to save Homura-0
Walpurga-1 fatally wounds Madoka-1
Madoka-1 gives her remaining power to Homura-0
Homura-0 mercy-kills Madoka-1
TIME LEAP
Timeline 2: (Prolog im Himmel)
Homura-0 cures her eyes, straightens her braids
Homura-0 fights all witches alone
Walpurga-2 attacks Homura-0
Madoka-2 makes a contract to save Homura-0
TIME LEAP
Timeline 3: (current timeline)
Homura-0 kills a QB
QB respawns, Homura-0 chases him
QB runs into Madoka-3

My solution to this situation if I were Homura will probably involve having to do three timelines:

Timeline 1 (this timeline) - Realize that this time line is a "no-win" scenario and repeat the timeline again, but not before taking a picture of Madoka in "witch" form.

Timeline 2 - Redo the events of the timeline, but start to drop hints to Madoka about how MS-->Witch early on as well as take a photo of Sayaka's witch form.

Timeline 3 - Rather than hide it, simply reveal subltely to Madoka and Sayaka that she's from the future by accurately predicting when small events will happen (a la Groundhog Day after Bill Murray starts to realize that commiting suicide will not bring an end to the time loop), and then show the pictures of Madoka and Sayaka's witch forms to them. If that fails, just offer to study with Madoka and Sayaka (hey it worked in stopping the most infamous timeloop in anime history).

They can defeat all other witches in the world and group commit suicide.

But then QB will turn more girls into MG > Witch, so one of the way out is to
1. let Madoka beats Walpurgis
2. Madoka gets turned into Witch
3. Homura kills Witch:Madoka
4. QB leaves earth
5. Homura kills all other witches and MGs
6. Homura commit suicide
7. Witch/MG System eliminated from Earth


But I can't really see Homura do that though

So We might get a second season, or some other sort of miracle (like Homura repeatedly loop back in time, gaining enough EXP to single-handedly defeat Walpurgis, so noone has to become MG.)

Am I thinking of the movie Deja Vu?

Hey, this could work if Homura was able to kill witch Madoka, but she's not. Homura can't handle Walpurgis alone, then there's no way she would be able to kill witch Madoka.

Sayaka5 turns into witch
Kyouko5 kamikaze into Sayaka5
Homura1 gonna take Walpurgis by herself again

@Dark Wing
The time line you're using is missing a time jump and Sayaka wasn't involved in the first world.

Now we know why QB granted Homura's wish. In the original time line Madoka didn't become a witch, she died fighting Walpurgis, so QB didn't get her energy.

Granting Homura's wish gave QB another chance to take Madoka's juicy energy.

Fucking critter!

This time recursion would make a great RPG for multiple playthroughs... if done properly.

Too bad most licensed game adaptations have low budgets.

She can always reset the time, getting stronger and stronger each loop though.

Maybe in terms of battle experience, but her magic power can only go so high.

OMG Mami died again and agin. There she was showing up as pretty as she always had been, and the next scene she is again on ground as a dead body.

How many times does she have to get killed!?!?!?

I really don't know what Urobuchi has in store for the series. As it is, one can potentially create at least another season like Higurashi, although he's already done a significant portion of the answer arc right here. It feels as if that this series intends to end by episode 12 from the looks of it. Based on what is available, the prospect of another recursion is very possible however.

Well, this episode definitely delivered on the answers. Like Panzerfan though, I'm wondering where we're going to go from here. While it can conceivably be wrapped up in the episodes remaining, we ALSO might not see a resolution this season at all, and instead continue with Homura's time-traveling adventures in Oriko Magica.

Heh... That's a thought. Bring an outside factor to change the situation.

This is weird. At first Homura didn't have any weapons, just her shield, so she used conventional weapons. But in this last time recursion, she has evolved. Those weird magical beams she kills QB with are something she didn't have before.

I wonder.....

Hmm, which magical beam are you referring to? Is it in episode 10? If so I guess I'll have to see it, still waiting >< But if you mean the other times I had assumed those were bullets from a conventional gun.
