Gonna have to agree with >>12471. The happiest ending they can all get is being normal girls. At that point though, it's completely unrealistic and would be Yuki Yuna tier bad. The happiest ending Madoka and Homura can get at this point is being reunited as never-resting partners in the form of some sort of abstract grief depository for the universe. Madoka bore that godlike burden alone just as Homura is bearing that golike burden currently. Homura's only out at this point is that she become some sort of composite yin yang entity with Madoka, otherwise she's gone and gone for good. Outside of setting up Madoka sitting in a chair all alone, there'd be no point. Madoka's dark and tragic, but that would be asking too much from the audience.

I think that some fans desperately want a "happy ending" but in my opinion that's missing the whole point of the show. What gets stressed over and over again is that there is an unbreakable cycle of suffering. The fact that there isn't a happy ending is the *point*.

I always though the fans wanted a yuri ending, where the "canon" ships are made canon (MadoHomu, KyoSaya and MamiNagi), with kisses and all that stuff

Yes but the studio loves teasing the fans and giving suffering to Sayaka and Homura

No.12481

>>12477

I'm sure a lot of fans want that sort of ending too. (In fact, I'd consider that one example of a "happy ending").

But the point I'm trying to make is that wishing for a happy ending (whatever your definition of that may be) is completely missing the big picture—that one of the main points of the show is the concept of endless and repeated suffering.

>Why? It doesn't look or sound anything like a railgun.

Artistic liberties could be taken, and that "tower" that the "monster" is biting into could be seen as a means to load the "bullets" and fire them.

Also, railguns have a much greater reach then normal cannons, so Mami using this kind of weapon (or something of its caliber) to destroy Homura's barrier encompassing the universe is quite likely…

I think Sayaka will become Walpurgis Night and return back past with many magical girls on Law of Cycles.

>>Artistic liberties could be taken,
Yeah, clearly. And to a very large degree!

>>and that "tower" that the "monster" is biting into could be seen as a means to load the "bullets" and fire them.

Sure. But that could apply to any type of gun or cannon. There's nothing specific about that which screams "railgun".

>>Mami using this kind of weapon (or something of its caliber) to destroy Homura's barrier encompassing the universe is quite likely…

Well, her guns currently seem to fire magical bullets, so it's not as if there's a need for a railgun to up the power.

No.12479

>>12473
Then it's not a railgun, just a very big conventional gun. Railguns use electromagnets, which are beyond the scope of Mami's powers.

I really hope they announce something after kizu ends airing.

The plot does not demand Nagisa's existence. If she was removed, Homura would still remember that Sayaka should be dead, which would lead to the same conversation they had in the alley, and the plot remains unchanged. Her character is unimportant; she has no major bearing on the plot; her purpose is really just adding to the "wrong" atmosphere.

I don't know why you're bringing up other characters in this discussion. The original five girls were necessary for Rebellion, that's understood from the beginning. Nagisa was not.

Mado-Homu, Kyo-Saya, Mami-Nagi.
That is the raison d'etre.

>>ARE infact relevant and help influence the progression of the plot.

Sure, they happen to be relevant. But the story could have been written differently—without Nagisa, and with other characters serving the same roles—and the overall plot would be unaffected.

For example, last week I flew to Atlanta, rented a Toyota from Avis, and drove to visit my client for a work meeting. Was the "toyota from Avis" important? Sure—it's what got me from the airport to my hotel & my client. But if I had rented a Honda or a Ford instead the end result would be no different. Everything that Nagisa contributes to Rebellion could have been contributed by other characters, it just happened to be written with Nagisa.

No.12460

Rebellion is a parody of fanfiction.

Can we all agree that she's the strongest magical girl? Mami MASTERED her ribbons. Not only that she outplayed a girl whose power is time-stop 2 times in the same fight.

But this would mean that ANYTHING without external influence isn't canon. Therefore, all forms of media are not canon.

I get it. The Canon or Non-canon debate is getting old. Could we just settle on a best girl and be done with it?

Uro already confirmed Homura is the "strongest" if no one knows about her powers. Obviously, the primary reason Homura is powerful is due to it, so if you know about her power, then you've gained an advantage. It's why in every fight that involves Homura, the enemy either needs to have some crazy combination of abilities to counter it (Oriko's foresight and Kirira's speed-slow), neutralize the ability before fighting (Mami in Rebellion), or be simply powerful enough for it not to matter (Walpurgis). Even Sayaka needed to escape the second time Homura tried to stick her in a time-stop (not saying that Homura is stronger than Sayaka in Rebllion prior to becoming a demon, of course).

Mami tying a ribbon was a good call on her part since it neutralized Homura's overpowered ability, but that doesn't mean she would defeat Homura if they were standing across from another and began at the same time. It would be akin to slipping Kryptonite into Superman's tights before engaging him in battle (which he did not would be taking place), beating him, and then claiming you're stronger or you would've won the fight under normal circumstances. It doesn't follow; there's no evidence.

No.12455

>>12454

Of course, just because Homura would probably win in a "stand twenty paces apart and begin at the whistle" fight due to her ability doesn't mean that she's stronger or more skilled than Mami.

People keep trying to use a>b>c logic in fights like it's Dragon Ball or some shit. That's incorrect. It depends on the circumstances and abilities of the opponents. For example, Kagari in the Suzune manga is described as an above-average who is still weaker than many magical girls. But if you set her up in a fight where both opponents stand some distance apart and begin the fight at the same time, then she'd be as dangerous as Homura and take out many people she couldn't simply overpower due to her ability.

>>12390
Her magic was simply described as slowing down the speed of her opponent within a certain range. Nothing about it being time manipulation was said.

I got the one on the left when I pre-ordered tickets for both films in Japan. Then I proceeded to lose the tickets on the way back to the theater a month later. I literally bought two of each ticket to see both first films once each…

The one on the right is one my friend gave me after he saw the film's American release.

They're basically the same poster, but what's really neat is that Tokyo's cityline and rainbow bridge are behind them on the Japanese poster while the American poster has a blue sky and the Statue of Liberty in the background. There are other versions released in other countries, too, though I don't own them. Korea's is my favorite, being a night-scape.

Hellooo everyone

I've been uploading the Magica Quarter translations of Tart Magica. I saw my links being passed around here a while ago: I ended up taking those down so I could put them back up larger.

Just in case anyone wants it, idk how things really work on here.

(I also got Homura's Revenge and I hope to have Homura Tamura and Suzume Magica up later, too)

A series is never depleted of discussion because you always have someone watching for the first time/rewatching and catching a missed detail, but the thing is you can't discuss madoka on /a/ without swimming in sea of tripfag circlejerk and the same crackshipping/cropped porn posted all the time.
