Does anyone know what this could POSSIBLY be? It was (supposedly) shown in the Concept Trailer… Is it a doorway of some sort? If so, what does it do? Where do you think it leads? (and if anyone knows Japanese, could you please translate what the guy who made this said?)


According to the moonrunes, it's an elevator. I can't read all of the kanji though.

We won't know until the premiere. Try not to think about it. Here's a Rebellion InuCurry image board. You can't gleam anything from it because the only people who know how to interpret it correctly are Quartet, InuCurry, and SHAFT's animators.


Here is translation

[Elevator SayaHomu]
Or was it just a grid door? I have taken an elevator with this kind of door before so I think it's an elevator (laugh). It sure was scary.
And then there was something inside this elevator(tentative). Well… Was it Law of Cycle because it's SayaHomu…?

I could imagine it to be part of what we've seen in the first concept movie. But that could also just be a labyrinth, i don't know :'D

Madoka had no idea about the fate of Magical Girls, as Homura was going out of her way to keep it from her. She was under the impression Sayaka and Kyouko were both killed by a witch.


If Madoka didn't find out, then it's consistent. I couldn't remember if she found out or not.


She never did. When Madoka asked what happened to Sayaka and Kyoko, Homura said they were killed by witches, leaving out the parts of Sayaka transforming and Kyoko dying because of it.

"It also helps that the movies were recently confirmed to be compilations of Homura's memories and POV of the events within the series, and these credits appeared in the music/theatre box that the Clara Dolls were viewing in Rebellion during that scene where Kyouko and Homura were discussing the Fake City." is this true ? where can I find the source?

It's not from Homura's POV. That's a Tumblr fan theory. It wouldn't even make sense that they were from Homura's POV because there are dozens of instances where Homura couldn't have even been present for certain events. Urobuchi specifically said the movies are just for people who missed the initial run of the series and nothing was added. They cut minor portions for pacing and time reasons. Beginnings is episodes 1-8 and where the changes are mpst present, so a lot of smaller scenes were cut, for better or worse.

>are fantasizing about how lovely the world would be if it were more surreal and filled with violence.

The doll is showing them Rebellion. The first 30 or so minutes of Rebellion are fun and happy and have the movie motif (Welcome to the Theater). The Claras complain about being bored during the transformation sequence. That's also around the same time Homura notices that isn't what being a magical girl is like. That's when they take ot upon themselves to make the story "better".

The Connect series credits lead into the stinger which leads into the actual credits. They needed a place holder and that's about it.


File: 1466574804093.png (216.78 KB, 640x360, homura.png)

The biggest scene I remember them cutting from Beginnings was the one where Homura decided to just kill Sayaka and be done with it.


Mami's entire past is cut.

>how Kirika first met Oriko

I forgot to mention that Sadness Prayer retcons this from "love at first sight" to "love at first FIGHT". A more "shonen" version, if you will… (complete with Oriko playing a Light Yagami to Kirika's Misa/Mikami; heck, I wouldn't be surprised if she had her hand outstretched afterwards and said, "join me, Kirika, and together, we can save the world")


I personally liked Kazumi too, but my personal gripes about it were more than the fanservice-y outfits.
Kazumi living in the end makes literally no sense to me; it's a forced happy ending. I would've liked it better had Kazumi died in the end and Michiru's point emphazied about despite not being there anymore she'll still live on in their memory (like her grandmother).

Hijiri (I know her name is Kanna but I like calling her Hijiri)'s apparent insanity over discovering herself to be a clone advanced too quickly to the point that she started to take everything out on everyone instead of strictly the Pleiades Saints wasn't handled exactly well either imo.

I kinda also wish the minor characters as such the policewoman made more appearances and showed another side to the series in the eyes of the normals. The Soujus not having a back story either is a waste as well.

I do like Kazumi, but I know it wasn't the best spin off out there. I'm hoping if it ever gets a rewrite or an anime (which is unlikely, but I can dream), it fixes these issues (and maybe the outfits as well).


>I forgot to mention that Sadness Prayer retcons this from "love at first sight" to "love at first FIGHT". A more "shonen" version, if you will…

I found that so strange, honestly.


I thought Niko's emotional instability was done alright with the time given to it. Suddenly finding out that your life was lie and that you weren't ever born would freak out any teen. Having all the powers of the Pleiades Saints was a bit of an asspull but makes sense since Kyubey wanted those girls out of the way.

It seems to me your main gripes with Kazumi, other than the happy ending, was that the story was a bit rushed. I agree. Maybe all the Magica manga series have a limit on how long they are allowed to last.

Kazumi's story would have benefited from a less brisk pace after the rest of the Saints were introduced and maybe two or three more volumes to let the mass of characters develop.

I still think it's much better than Suzune Magica.

Since my assumption about Sadness Prayer was that it would primarily be about Kirika being a Magical Girl Killer, the only direction I could see it going would be more shounen.

I'm looking forward to reading it in November, even though I think as a prequel its kind of unnecessary.

This sketch of two girls was in the more recent Concept Movie. Based on their appearances, I can only assume that they're two antagonists from Kazumi Magica (Souju on the left, Yuuri with her hair in a bun on the right) Is it too late to rule out the possibility of spin-off characters making a canonical debut in the franchise? Or am I just spouting off nonsense by even suggesting this as a possibility, and that they're more likely to be Original Characters?

They remind me most of the two magical girls that were featured in the prologue of The Different Story.
It would be nice if they would make a cameo. But are they even allowed to have manga only characters make a cameo? How does character ownership even work when it comes to Madoka manga?

For instance, do all the manga-only characters in Suzune Magica belong to Magica Quartet or do they belong to GAN?



The artist who did these renditions says he doesn't actually remember what they looked like, so these are very rough ideas. The girl on the left looked like it had eyes like Mami and the girl on the right had eyes more like Homura, the artist thinks. However, the text also reveals something interesting…


File: 1466482393571.jpg (269.77 KB, 1280x720, concept-movie_tv12_kuma.jpg)

The artist mentions these two girls looked more original, but they were accompanied in succession by THIS girl, known in the Japanese fandom as くま美ちゃん (Kumami-chan). The artist thinks that with Kumami-chan there, there's a high possibility that the other girls shown here are all from the Law of Cycles.

These were the three characters the artist could see clearly on the screen. Apparently, there were a ton of other girls shown on the screen.


>Apparently, there were a ton of other girls shown on the screen.
Which likely means they are either magical girls who are a part of the Law of Cycles or magical girls that are still alive. Or a combination of both.



The artist here is making that assumption as well, due to the appearance of Kumami-chan.

Any english translations of Tart Magica out there? Would be Nice if someone could send them c:

I think it's also demographic. If they went purely by sales, we'd be getting Mami Tomoe's Everyday Life. I for one enjoy the fluff spin-offs and would prefer we got more of those rather than the Suzune or Kazumi. Tart is the only serious spin-off I've enjoyed. I was really surprised we even got Tamura and I'm hoping for Anti-Materials.


how much of the franchise is canon besides the anime and Rebellion? different story, wraith arc, cd drama 1 and 3, psp and that's it? I dont think Oriko Magica is canon


There is objectively no canon in PMMM.

>>11593 is right:
When it comes to the manga spin-offs you're going to have to use your own judgement on what you think is canon or not. Ask yourself these questions:

Does a spin-off that's explicitly set on an alternate timeline count as canon?

Does a spin-off that's set in the World of Witches count as canon even though witches have been retconned away?

Does a spin-off count as canon even though the anime or movies don't reference it at all?


File: 1466273055311.jpg (403 KB, 1280x720, Mahou.Shoujo.Oriko.Magica.….jpg)

I'm glad that it's getting 5 volumes or more! Tart Magica is easily my favorite spin-off manga so far. And it feels likes I'm actually learning something about the real Hundred Years' War while reading it.

I'm really not a fan of the 'fluffy' or 'comfy' manga. Even Homura's Revenge started out a little too silly for my tastes. At least, it got better.

I think that Kazumi Magica and Suzune Magica aren't that bad if you go in with the expectation that it's not going to be as good as Madoka Magica. I genuinely liked them better than Oriko Magica or Homura Tamura.

It's a genuine trend.

I'm not surprised that Oriko Magica is still around considering how many Madoka fans are also fans of yuri. Note that after the first Oriko Magica series that Oriko and Kirika became the main characters.

I'd like to point out that the Giant Wraith seems to look like a paper craft/origami before it's folded. Could someone confirm whether or not it's possible to get a shape out of this, and what the result would be should it be attempted?

Well, if there's a connection to be made between this wraith and pentagrams, I think you should know that pentagrams are stereotypically associated with witchcraft. Think about this for a second…


Well, yeah, that's the obvious one, as well as satanic references, but I'm wondering if there's more to it.


File: 1465753877860.jpg (15.68 KB, 305x302, pentagram.jpg)

>>pentagrams are stereotypically associated with witchcraft.

Sure. But a pentagram is an upside-down 5-pointed star. It symbolizes the goat of lust, as in pic related. If anything this is just a plain 5-pointed star, not a pentagram.


>>a vague abstraction of the human body— 4 points for the limbs, and on for the head.

I agree. I looks like a vague humanoid form to me as well. And if you compare it to the other wraiths shown in >>11426, that makes even more sense given that all the wraiths have a vaguely humanoid form.

In my opinion it doesn't resemble the dark orb in the slightest.


Yeah, it likely doesn't. I just thought it looked rather similar to the dark orb and made my conclusion based on that assumption (I guess I haven't yet learned that I should never assume…)

If anything, it's probably a humanoid 5-pointed star that was based on the pentagram. It likely doesn't have any connection to Homucifer in any way (and even if it does, something's going to have to be added in to the plot in order for this revelation to work, which isn't likely…)
