Doujins got that covered. Take that image with you while you sleep.

I'm not surprised at Gen's comment. It makes sense if you remember the "conversation" she had with Mami and Kyouko after she made her wish. It also ties in with other statements: Homura crying that her fate was worse than death, Kyubey's "incorrect" assumptions about the nature of the wish and his mention that they couldn't figure out why the gems simply disappear, which suggests that Incubator "scientists" are working on uncovering that "problem". And of course Madoka makes a vague mention of an even bigger miracle "soon". The universe without Madoka is clearly a minor improvement over the ones with her (sounds bad saying that, but it's true), and the impression I got after months of reflecting on it is that it was at best a stopgap universe careening toward a destructive ending just like the others. Homura is fighting the good fight but it is still borrowed time.

The ending to the series leaves a lot of room to explore the question of Madoka's (and the others) true fate, if hope can truly prevail over despair, etc. I have no doubt that much crying and bittersweet feelings will happen, but Gen has proven that he has the capability of writing about complicated themes.

I choose to remain optimistic, however, since Madoka's actions fit the exact description he said was necessary for him to get over his own personal Despair Syndrome in his post-script of Fate/Zero.

Let's hope he's not THAT much of a dick.

Wasn't there an interview some time earlier when Gen said that whereas the original Madoka script was primarily a story of his own creation, the new Madoka movie will be a true product of the combination of the Magica Quartet? Suggesting, implicitly, that in this case Shinbo, Aoki, etc. would have had some actual input in discussing the future of Madoka's direction. I highly doubt the final movie will have Urobochi going back to his grimdark roots in any manner contradictory to the first story's conclusion.

That's correct.

And yeah, based in part on the Magica Quartet factor for the movie, I doubt that it will be significantly more grimdark than the original anime narrative.

Now, I do think it will change up the PMMM universe some. It pretty much has to, otherwise the whole movie might feel like an exercise in vanity. I suspect there will be a new twist, a new threat, perhaps even one final stage "farther down the rabbit hole". But I also suspect that the protagonist(s) will largely overcome that, albeit with some sacrifice in all likelihood.

Still 2 weeks before the airing in Paris... And that's the 1 and only one airing in France...

... I can't help to be anxious, afraid that the organisators to mess up; like a divx quality on a movie screen, sub or dub? Between the 2 movies there's a break of 30 min to 1 hour and need to fight to retake the best places, and the time it will finish it might be 01:00 AM, suck to find a way to go home...

It will be subbed,that's for sure.

They're hoping that there'll be more dates afterwards,depends on the success of the event

Concernant la diffusion cinéma, il s'agit d'une PREMIERE, nous souhaitons bien entendu distribuer les films le plus largement possible. Et le principal blocage se trouve au niveau des cinémas (qui ne programment pas d'animation japonaise en vostfr). Cet évènement va permettre, nous l’espérons de montrer l'engouement que peut susciter ce type de sortie.
Went to the SAO event they organized in june,it was smaller scale but everything went fine.

Um... how? And why? It's like Madoka and Homura just randomly decided to set up two white chairs in an absolutely idyllic greenish setting, and sit on them. I guess this could be leading into a yuri confession? Madoka's body language certainly gives me that feeling, lol.

In all seriousness, lovely pic, but it really is a mystery how this scene fits into the plot of the first two movies.

Thanks for the info, guys. Now it makes sense.

Now, another question I've been meaning to ask but it kept slipping my mind... Animexcel, where the heck did you get that awesome Mami gif avatar? I don't recall Mami ever having a transformation sequence like that in the anime. Your gif avatar looks really cool!
