Are we ever going to get improved translation of wraith arc? Specifically, chapters 4, 5, and 6?

No.13509

Has Yen Press licensed it yet?

No.13520

>>13506
Yen Press is just slow as shit. That's all their is to it. Wraith Arc has an exceptionally high chance because it's a mainline story, which they've always done. We may never get Anti-Materials or Magical Girl Student Council, but we're almost guaranteed WA at some point based on prior publishing history.

Hi! I've been searching for the japanese attacks showed in Rebellion but found nothing.. is anybody here who might know? I'd like to add the info on Puella Magi Wikia.

As far as I could understand they were:

English:
-Madoka and Mami: Tiro Duet
-Homura: Release
-Sayaka: The Five Lillians
-Kyouko: Latticework Barrier

Japanese/romaji:
-Madoka and Mami: Tiro Dueto
-Homura: Ririsu
-Sayaka: Go Nen Saba(?) Ririansu
-Kyouko: amikome(?) kekkai(?)

You've got it right. Those were the only ones named I believe. Regarding the other magical attack names:

Mami: Tiro Finale, Regare
Kyoko: Rosso Fantasma
Madoka: Finitora Freccia
Homura: Tiro Esplosione

I think the Battle Pentagram has even more of their attack names.

I'm not an atheist, and I'm certainly not trying to offend anyone. My point was simply that if you don't follow a particular religion then you wouldn't be aware of that religion's holidays.

I wouldn't expect a non-Christian to be aware of Good Friday, just as I wouldn't expect a non-Hindu to be aware of Holi.

It occurred to me recently. I never really understood Sayaka and Kyouko's relationship. How did it come to be? I don't ever recall Sayaka (outside of Rebellion) being on positive terms with Kyouko but somehow, Kyouko came to value her.

Can someone explain the development of Kyouko's feelings for Sayaka?

>Makes no sense because Madoka doesn't seek attention.
Whether or not Madoka seeks attention is irrelevant to my point. If we follow what I believe(d) to be your perception of Madoka, that she merely helps because it alleviates her low self-esteem then yes, attention-seeking would make sense because getting attention would also alleviate it. Or perhaps being a bully. This is all to prove your opinion wrong/inaccurate.

>> attention-seeking would make sense because getting attention would also alleviate it

I'm not the person you're debating this with, but that statement doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

If Madoka desires to "help" or to "do something meaningful for people" then what does attention have to do with anything? Getting attention doesn't "help". It's a totally different thing altogether.

No.13468

>>13466
>attention-seeking would make sense because getting attention would also alleviate it
Attention-seeking is a response to a lack of attention. Lack of attention is not one of Madoka's issues. Her issue, as I stated in >>13464, lack of ability leading to a sense of uselessness, which drives her desire to be useful to others.

No.13469

>If Madoka desires to "help" or to "do something meaningful for people" then what does attention have to do with anything? Getting attention doesn't "help". It's a totally different thing altogether.
My reasoning is that if her desire to help others is rooted in a desire to be valued by others then this desire in turn is the result of her failure to value herself i.e. the state of having low self-esteem. If it's a simply a matter of low self-esteem then in my eyes, there's a variety of possible solutions. These would include attention-seeking and bullying. Attention-seeking is viable because people only place their attention on the things they value so for a person to receive attention is for that person to be valued.
>>13468
>Attention-seeking is a response to a lack of attention.
Well that changes everything. I had the idea that general low self-esteem issues were resolved with general solutions e.g. finding ways to be useful to others, finding ways to garner attention, bullying, etc.

No.13471

>>13469
That's an overgeneralization. Attention seeking is usually a response to neglect. Bullying is usually a response to being overpowered. Madoka's response is to a lack of ability. All of these include low self-esteem, but are different in nature.

People like dark, attractive anti-heroes. Are you really this new to anime?

>yet she is the new "evil" in the future of the franchise


Yeah, clearly shown by every official work making her sympathetic and pushing MadoHomu on the readers and viewers during and after Rebellion. Once again, I question if this is your first anime. Hero v. anti-hero and anti-hero becomes "evil" to save hero are such overused trope that I'm certain the major delay in the sequel is coming up with a plot that isn't predictable.

Maybe Kamihama is a rift in space time caused by Madoka's wish. Would be a good excuse so they could put any magical girl in gacha, even Tart.

Another possibility is being a massive experiment by someone, like in Kazumi Magica.

According what they say in the trailer and in the official web, the story sets in an alternate timeline when Homura sacrifices herself to (defeat Walpurguisnacht?) in ordrer to save Madoka. Maybe she turned Godhomu (not Ai yo) and her new magical girl laws probably will consist in that magical girls can use her own witch's power like the black wings at the end of the series.

Just speculating except from the sacrifice that is mentioned by Madoka and the fact that Madoka is searching Homura like she will find somewhere and the girls don't know why they can use that strange power in the new city it will be because they are'nt aware of some puella magi laws like enkan no kotowari or Homura does'nt become a God neither.

The Law of Cycles isn't a location were people casually hang out. You have to die before you can even get there. Either everyone is fake or everyone is dead.

>>13404
It's amazing no one else is mentioning this fan fiction on Twitter. Which is more likely to mean you're a shit translator more than anything.

The only person pushing the Law of Cycles thing was that retard from Tumblr, WarriorKK. I remember when they started this shit with a shit translation that was complete at odds with the official translation and claims that Madokami and the Law of Cycles played a role. Which was never stated anywhere.

Okay anons, now that the dust has settled, I think we can say that Wraith Arc was a thing. Personally I gave it a 5/10 on my first read, but gave it a 7/10 after a re-read. I know some people are still sperging out about Wraith Arc and after checking some places out online, I'd like to ask a question.

Why are some fans confused that Homura is the main character of Wraith Arc? She's the focus on every cover. To me, much of the complaints that aren't on a technical level or about the perceived plot holes all seem to be aimed at the story not going like how they wish it would. It seems like a lot of the noise is "the characters don't act like I want them to" or "this isn't like the fan fiction I envisioned."

They're literally yin and yang. Homura's wish gave birth to Madokami (light), Madoka's wish gave birth to Homucifer (dark). The only thing left is for them to become one being and literally yinyang or kill each other.

Well, -a- balance was restored. Doesn't seem to be a particularly stable one. The state of the world at the end of rebellion (familiars playing on the streets, half the moon missing, an active and grumpy demiurge) makes it seem like an arrangement without a future, with Madoka 'waking up' being a very likely outcome.

KM is on hiatus.

Mami Tomoe's Everyday Life will be run in another publication for the time being.

Tart will be concluding.

Oriko will be released at a later date.

All other stories will be concluded for the time being.

They aren't saying it's a cancellation or final issue, just looks like they ran out of stuff to justify a full magazine.

both gen and one of the magica quartet producers have said that's exactly what they want; obviously, shaft is too busy making money with *monogatari to give more resources to madoka.
