So any expectations about this novel?

I heard it might be based off of the anime's original uncut script.

Unless Gen himself is writing it, I don't really expect too much more in the way of backstory than the anime and manga had. The most I'd expect is maybe deeper insight into the thought process of characters.

XD...

Mine would be:
1) More Sayaka in action (before Mami died).
2) Homura is less cold.
3) They all team up to kill the witch (with the exception of Sayaka, who still dies anywhere, no matter what the source).

Its actually just a pre-release at C80. A limited edition is officially being released on August 14.

The novel is based on Urobochi's original script, but the one who is writing it is Nitro+'s Hajime Ninomae.

So like Zanma Taisei's novels then. Which were pretty good, but I'll see how this one turns out.

The novel seemingly adheres to the manga's rules of Magical Girls maintaining their magical form when they die. Interesting.

Also, that Mami picture is unf. I'll leave it up for your interpretation which one I'm referring to.

Is this the alternate universe? Does the novel have multiple path/ending?

The novel follows the anime and manga, its not like a visual novel if that is what you're thinking

The difference is that the novel is based on Gen's original script before he revised/cut it down to the anime and manga's script. So there are things in the novel not shown in the others.

For example, the wiki has two translated excerpts which are flashbacks of Madoka's childhood with Sayaka.

Well, I made it pretty obvious to anyone who would get the reference.

Someone's lunch would be unloaded with Mami's "before and after" pics. Besides... I think the latter pic might as well change my mind about big chests, and think twice.

In a nutshell, some of the illustrations are no-holds-barred.

You have to agree the Sayaka and Kyouko one is really sweet though

So no one else looked at the last pic of Homura and realized what the ending of the anime actually meant? Poor Homura.

Wasn't it also implied by the end of the manga?
