Charlotte is in a certain sense the rock to Mami's scissors (Tiro Finale hit, didn't it?). But the deciding point is imho that Mami was overconfident. I could bring a rather strong meta argument supporting this, but that could be some kind of spoiler.

I just finished the whole thing, so could you please go into a bit more detail about that? And does it say somewhere that the witch's name was Charlotte? I saw the whole thing and didn't find anything about it. I'm confused.

Her name appeared in runes when she first showed up, that's how we know various witches' names. As for Charlotte being Mami's counter, Mami's power comes from binding. Charlotte is a snake that can shed its skin and thus escape from bindings.

What GDB said Furthermore, in my opinion the deciding point is her overconfidence. Take a look at Mahou Shoujo Oriko Magica Chapter 3 Page 4. Also, Mami does survive Charlotte in a few time lines (where it could be argued she doesn't encounter her there, but well...), so it's not that Mami's death is certain or determined.

The name of the witches were known as soon as the Runic Script was deciphered. These were then confirmed by the Witch Cards that were posted on the official website after the episodes were aired.

The Puella Magi wiki has the complete list of anime witches (as well as the ones in supplementary material like Oriko Magica), for those who can't read Japanese (for the main website I mean).

Credit goes to the people at the Puella Magi Wiki for compiling the evidence I needed.

I have a hard time determining whether to take this question serious or not...

That's clever there.

I seriously think her boobs are just fanservice, or maybe just to look different from the rest of the cast with their unnoticable chests. The character designer put them in just b/c she wanted to, not for a deep reason.

Actually, I always thought her breast size was supposed to emphasise her motherly status. I mean even her name, "Mami", sounds like "Mommy" or "Mamm-" ("breast"), as in "Mammography" or "Mammal". I don't actually think that's all a coincidence.

It's possible, especially if you take into account that Mami's name is written in katakana, which could imply she's of foreign descent one way or another (i.e. she's either a foreigner herself, or has foreign parents). However, it's said that Ume Aoki didn't really put any deeper meaning to it, so this will probably always remain speculation.

Btw, the Grief Seed that Homura rolled over to Sayaka... Wasn't that Charlotte's Grief Seed (the same one Sayaka claimed to be Mami's)?

Probably. It'd be fitting.

Sayaka: 'I don't want to accept your handstain with Mami's blood on it' or 'You are too different. I can't accept you' (probable reason for not accepting the Grief Seed)?

Isn't it implied that Homura succumbs to the darkness of the new reality at the end of the series when she sits there with Kyubei? God this series is driving me nuts, because it is pure tragedy.

Teenage girls are said (or at the very least implied) to be more emotional than boys, meaning that Kyubey can get a higher energy output from them once they become Witches. This means he would need to convert far less girls into Witches to counter entropy than boys. Not that he would mind sacrificing a few more boys compared to girls, but Kyubey seems to want the highest possible efficiency and if you can get more for less and target only girls, why not go that route?

Could Walpurgis Night be one of Homura's many possibilities (or the first Puella Magi or Oriko)? Cause when you stick Walpurgis Night (removed face) and Gretchen (Madoka witch), they form an hourglass [related to Homura's Za Warudo powers].... (Madoka's wish removed that possibility)
