Agreeing with the whole "become a MG is a bad deal" thing, but in the meatgrinder theory don't you think that either homura or mami would've explicitely told them "don't become a MG because you'll be forced to kill off your friends or fall to corruption and be killed instead"?
And no, I don't think mami's cry for attention or homura's failing social skills are a valid excuse for omitting this. Unless there's a "you don't talk about the fight club" thing going on.

Has to be the 1st rule of fight club thing going around, if you knew that piece of information, there would be no magical girls at all.

You're assuming they even know, but why would they? Unless they explicitly saw a comrade turn from MG to witch, there's no reason they would be privy to that information.

Assuming they've been doing this for a while, they would have found out the hard way right?

To say the truth, i didn't know who Urobuchi is until this episode...

I know who Aoki Ume is through. And the shocked effect of this episode was doubled thank to that

PS: So i was thinking that maybe a mastermind witch was actually behind Kyuubee, cooking up her evil scheme by granting miracles to random girls. Could it be Bernkastel and her boredom again ?

he's not apologising, those were a series of pathetic trolling attempts.

however because of this, I will change my way of spreading the word of this series.
Play it accordingly to the person's taste. If he/she likes dark and fked up stuff, mention the name Urobuchi.
If he/she is into loli/MG, tell them it's another mahou shoujo show with Ume Aoki as the design, and watch their reaction come ep3

Oh, so they were trying to hide who the writer was? Honestly I might not be watching it if I hadn't heard his name connected to it though. Well, I guess Shinbo would have drawn me in on his own. And Kaijura.

my reactions during the pre-season hype up:

"SHAFT is doing a mahou shoujo anime with Shinbo being the director" lol SHANotFT
"It has ClariS and Kajiura for the music" nice, but still not that interested
"Urobuchi as the writer" MOST ANTICIPATED SHOW OF THE SEASON!!!


to be fair, those that didn't know about urobuchi will certainly caught wind of it after this episode. It will troll those that comes in for a mahou shoujo show on drugs, and those that likes this dark stuff will definitely know about it later on.

To be honest, it was Kajiura and Shinbo for me, I knew little about Urobuchi (other than Saya no Uta). Also the lingering hope that it won't turn "mecha"-ized like the latter seasons of Nanoha did (all the more blatant with Force).

Thank god for the twist at the end of this episode, the show has been a complete borefest up until now.
Now, if the manange to turn those super cutesy stereotypical anime girls into psychotic train wrecks, the show might be actually worth watching until the end.

What makes you believe that Star Wars didn't copy all human literature that comprises the battle of good vs evil?

I came in here for Kajiura actually, not even for Shinbo.

Honestly, I have never ever heard of any of the people associated with this show. I just decided to try it out, and ending up really liking it. So I lucked out, I guess.

Now seek out what the people who are associated have done already.
