Holy crap guys, did noone else notice yet? The black cat showed up in Kazumi Magica! My mind is currently being blown.

Anyway yeah, it seems like Kazumi Magica does have a somewhat stronger connection to Madoka Magica than we thought it had. Soul Gems exist, and witches also apparently drop something; though if that is a Grief Seed isn't really known yet. The mysterious person creating witches/handing out power I spoke about last time seems to have been revealed, and is a Puella Magi...? Or maybe she's just another mysterious character? In any case, the idea that this world is somehow related to the Madoka Magica universe makes the flashbacks Kazumi had in the first chapter much more anomalous and notable--six witches and/or mahou shoujos standing around a hexagram, Kazumi recieving her bells (Soul Gems?) from an older adult figure...

It'll probably be a while before we see the answers to these mysteries. Chapter 2 made me feel less Kazumi moe than the first one, but this manga is still pretty awesome.

Wow, this mangaka has no idea how to frame action scenes. Still, the story is interesting, especially since the differences in witches and grief seeds are probably not just stylistic changes. I was pretty indifferent about the first chapter, but the second one is quite a bit better.

I'm really curious if the manga-ka is working off the script that Gen wrote, or is just HOPING that it connects somehow with the anime (assuming the TV series ends on a bittersweet note).

It's a spin-off, so really he only needs to understand the fundamentals of the universe he's writing in. It doesn't have to connect to the characters of the anime at all as long as the rules for the creation of magical girls and their eventual fates remain consistent. My money is on these girls being the witches from the first half of the series, though.

I disagree . The Puella Magi system seems to be significantly different from that of Madoka Magica. However, I do have a pet theory that Kazumi is a former Witch who was somehow turned back into a Magical Girl , and that this series is set Post-Madoka . Which means that we might be looking at the aftermath of Madoka's rewrite of reality . I suspect if Madoka was to make a contract in the time-loop Madoka Magica's set in , it would strongly revolve around rewriting the system as much as she can.

I disagree.

Why nobody seems to be suspecting of this girl?

In any case, I have to agree that this spin off seems to be more "Post Madoka" than prequel. So I suspect that we'll have to hope to get the Walpurgis answers elsewhere.

Yes, let's turn the Junko Iwao character into a Magical Girl.

And then her Witch form can be Ophelia from Romeo x Juliet

lol, indeed. It also seemingly disappeared off the top of Kazumi's head after she asked Umika what was for breakfast.

I am thus tentatively taking the black cat's role in both Kazumi and Madoka to simply be a red herring/mascot character, with no major plot impact. Yeah, even the revelation of that possibility was enough to blow my mind :P.

No proof so far, but this has occured to me, too. (then, for good measure, let's make Oriko turn into Charlotte, shall we?)

sounds interesting, too.

um, no, my brain isn't quite working towards her. For all I know, Hitomi might be a more probable candidate in that aspect. Although considering the teacher's private life, I'm afraid she'd jump at the call the moment Kyuubey mentions wish-granting.

With the way the anime series has ended we now know why things are so different here in the Kazumi Magica Manga.

So witches aren't the same kind of witches we're used too.

We still have some problems placing where Kazumi Magica in the greater Madoka Magica universe. Why? We still have old-school witches running around with the post-wish grief-generated monsters, that's why.

^ plus they are hinted to be more common. And complete with grief seeds. So far, nobody mentioned "Grief demons" or such.
