Post your shelf where you keep your Madoka merch.

I only started supporting the franchise last year and I'm still not sure how I should arrange my manga volumes.

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.

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.

I've managed to obtain a few Kazumi store bonuses, one of them being a poster from Vol. 3 of the girls, and while attempting to scan it I found this story on the back. The wiki says it's a short story called Rosetta Meteora, and yet there doesn't appear to be a translation nor a scan of it yet.

I'm wondering if I should upload the scan and create a special page for it or anything.
Is there anyone out there that can translate it?

Oh, and:

5. How the WA plot negatively affects and undermines the meaning of the wish Madoka made at the end of the TV anime.

No.12282

>>12277
Remember that series where Mami was literally perfect? And Kyouko spent her time fawning over Sayaka? I sure don't. It's not just Homu, the characterization is off in general.

>>12281
I think they were trying to reinforce that the wish Madoka made was the right one, but no means the perfect one. That said, WA makes wraiths just seem much worse than witches in general after that reveal. We went from a regulated system where the magical girl to witch ratio was roughly 1:1 to a endlessly spawning horde of soul eaters that even the LoC can't save meguca from.


>>12281

No.12283

Why do you think Homura doesn't act like herself in WA?

No.12285

>>12282
Well here's the thing. Wraiths don't kill (usually), Wraiths are implied to be weaker than witches and so there are more of them, which is why you need multiple grief cubes in order to fully cleanse your gem, each wraith dropping a decent handful.

If anything I'd say maybe for every 10 wraiths = 1 witch but don't quote me on that. Remember that the Wraiths fight in packs so they have a pack mentality, vs the witches who cry in secluded areas and affect their surrounding Areas.

Wraiths are only dangerous if there are a large cluster, 1 normal average wraith on it's own can be easily defeated by a magical girl vs fighting a witch where it's all dependant on the girl's skill, anyone can die at any time.

No.12288

Homura's characterization is at least reasonable. Mami is too strong-willed. Some might argue that Kyoko is too obsessed with Sayaka, but it's not too far off from the series where she threw her life away despite knowing that she probably couldn't be saved. But the plot has way too many holes and doesn't make much sense in the context of the animated continuity. Moreover, they overdo the negative aspect of Madoka's wish to the point that it seems like a colossal mistake rather than a moderate improvement.

Image Note Page 198 of Rebellion Production Note

When Sayaka materializes, the rose garden witch's familiars along with other souls in the cycle stuffed fragments of themselves inside Sayaka's bag to help out.

Out of all the magical girls who had become a part of God, the ones that Homura knows have the mission of a huge event like an instant awakening from a long, long dream.

God Madoka's Banner: Slightly modified from the witch of salvation's crest from the PSP game.

Sayaka: After the mermaid witch's appearance, God Madoka's mark appears on her cape.

(Apparently the magical girls who are in the Law of Cycles are in a hibernation state by the description that awakened from a long dream. Possibly the Law of Cycles is close to multiple merged souls considering the expression "part of God")

PMMM starts with what is basically a flash-forward. We see Homura fighting Walpurgisnacht, which is something that actually happens much later in the show. (Same thing in Psycho-Pass, another Gen Urobuchi script—the beginning features a flash-forward to the climatic fight at the end of the show).

Rebellion seems like it follows the same pattern. The opening scene is Homura's monologue about the nature of magical girls, etc. She then goes to state that "I dreamed I saw [Madoka] again", and then the movie progresses from there. So what exactly is Homura's perspective while she is speaking? Is this a flash forward/back situation? Something entirely different?

The question is, which Homura is doing the talking here? Can that perhaps provide any clues as to the transition between TV and Rebellion? Or perhaps offer hints at something post-rebellion?

The "dream" need not necessarily refer to the events of Rebellion, theoretically speaking. Homura may have literally dreamt of Madoka before her soul gem corrupted. There's also Homura's soul gem tumbling in the picture which could support this.

>>12166
>>The "dream" need not necessarily refer to the events of Rebellion, theoretically speaking.

Yes, that is certainly possible—in a technical sense anyway. However I think the fact that the dialogue occurs in the opening to Rebellion that the most likely interpretation is that it does indeed refer to the events of Rebellion.

>>Homura may have literally dreamt of Madoka before her soul gem corrupted. There's also Homura's soul gem tumbling in the picture which could support this.


Yes, and that's a very good point. I'm starting to agree more and more with >>12158 about this. It seems most likely that it occurred during the events of Rebellion, but before her change to Homucifer (as evident by both her tone of voice, as well as the soul gem)

No.12170

>>12167
To order the possibilities by likelihood, it's probably during the timeframe Homura's investigation of the barrier, maybe some time between the TV series and Rebellion, and least likely post-Rebellion (especially since it's not the 'Homucifer voice' and we have nothing but pure speculation to predict Homura's future form).

No.12171

What's also interesting is Sayaka's narration in episode 04, where she says something like "in retrospect, I didn't understand the meaning or the price of wishing for a miracle at that time". When does she actually say that?

No.12173

>>12171
I'd guess she thought that when she was turning into a witch at Episode 8. A bizarre form of foreshadowing, if you ask me.

Which bring up another question: could this mean that Homura's monologue at the beginning of the movie took place when she was turning into Homucifer?
