I don't know japanese so I maybe wrong if a recent interview or book has it stated in it. I'm talking about the isolation field. The reason her soul gem got tainted, it was never explained right? The real reason. Was it because she missed Madoka so much? I do not think so. If we look at the manga, homura was injured and bruised a bit. She was also wearing her magical girl clothes. I think she used too much magic which tainted her gem. She maybe fighting wraiths before the incubators set their plan into action. After that, maybe then the incubators took advantage of her. Maybe even luring her into facing lots of wraiths was also a part of their plan. Maybe.

I found something interesting too, though this is Shinbo's own thoughts — or maybe he's implying that yes, Homura did miss Madoka and/or something happened.

"In that sense, you also made lavish use of the world we see at the end of the TV series, where they're battling the wraiths. Because that world was hardly depicted at all during the episodes."

SHINBO: Yes. That's why I'd like to depict the story of what got them to that point. Why Homura was defeated, and why her soul gem became corrupted… the story leading up to the movie. Because normally, Homura wouldn't be defeated so easily. I'm sure that there's a reason why she ended up that way.

It's likely that moment just happened to be the point in time in the new universe that corresponds to the point in time that 'ended' the old one.

That is, it's likely the day we're shown the new world is the day Walpurgisnacht would have occurred in the old world. This would make perfect sense, because Walpurgisnacht is the single point that blocks the progress of time in the series. Transitioning into the new world by also having it move chronologically past Walpurgisnacht truly shows that things are finally moving again into new possibilities.

>>7732

I believe in that moment, the old universe Homura took over in the same way that Homura's existence flows back in time to override her past self whenever she rewinds.

There's nothing odd about the ribbons being in her hands, should it have also miraculously transcended space-time in that exact moment with together with Homu's consciousness.

can't get the soruce atm, but IIRC nagisa is one of the fastest witches, madoka fast level; her backstoryhas her mother dying in the hospital, then qb offers a contract, so she asks for a cheese cake so she coudl eat it for the last time with her mother, a few minutes after that she realizes she could have asked for her mother to get healed and witches out.

No.7747

>>7732
Actually, I'd say from a narrative perspective it makes perfect sense. Sayaka's Bad End was a pivotal point in the series that we already saw in two different timelines. Starting there allowed them to establish most aspects of the new status quo in about twenty seconds, in a scene that fits structurally into the rest of the series. It's only when people like us start sniffing into every detail that a need for more explanation arises.

If you're right about Homura having her memories before then, she might have just taken the ribbons off to think about Madoka after witnessing the Law of the Cycle for the first time. Or she may not have thought of wearing them before then.

No.7793

>>7732

Madoka exists out of time and space. Homura has her old headband on at that point, right? So in other words, the ribbons came from Madoka and didn't exist in that timeline until this moment. You can't really make any other sense out of things existing out of time and space.

Quick question, folks.

Does anyone know what's going on with Suzune Magica? I haven't been able to find anything about it beyond the basic summary that the wiki has, and there doesn't seem to be any translations that I can find.

Same goes for Taruto and the assorted Oriko sagas.

It seems very odd to me that there hasn't really been any word on them in a long time.

The scanlation text needs a lot of proofreading. There's lots of missing punctuation and awkward sentences. It makes reading pretty awful for someone like me, where these kinds of little things stand out and distract from the story. (Volume 1 was a lot better about this, but still had a few weird spots here and there.)

Also, wasn't the second half of Arisa's wish worded as "I want to stand up to all of them!" in the volume 1 scanlation? The translation in volume 2 chapter 8 has it worded as "I want to leave them in the dust" despite being written the same in Japanese.

This is why I need internet. I'm far from the only native English speaker in the group, but that kind of stuff bothers me, too. Until I have internet again, I can't proofread anything…

I did some Googling on tonight's holiday and found something interesting:
http://longforgottenhauntedmansion.blogspot.com/2010/06/which-witch.html

Apparently, this was from DisneyLand in Japan, from the Haunted Mansion. This witch was called the Witch of Walpurgis. one of the so-called Sinister 11, the portraits who used to watch you as you passed down the hall at WDW (and they still do at Tokyo). Now the eleven are scattered around inside the WDW Mansion, and the Witch of Walpurgis hangs in the load area. Like the others, her eyes are no longer the concave, half-a-ping-pong-ball type that follow you. That's her second demotion, you might say. Originally, she was going to be a changing portrait.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. What she really represents is the middle ground that Marc Davis could not find, somewhere between the cartoon witches of Halloween decor and the scary, Black-Sabbat-attending witches of Western imagination, still considered very numerous and very real until the 18th century or so. When Davis began kicking around the idea of witches in the HM, one direction he tried out was the "realistic" one. His original concept painting for the Walpurgis Witch features some curious differences from the finished version above. For one thing, her head was originally going to turn into a goat's head.

So I had a theory of this, could she be the very first magical girl to become a witch? What caused her and the rest of the magical girls to become a witch? Was it her hatred of human kind? I know the original Walpurga was a missionary and a nun, but I wonder… what made her become evil? Was her goat head showing the hatred of human kind? Feel free to post some theories on here.

Well, the despair has always been there even before magical girls, so there were probably wraiths at first.

No.7775

Don't think so, if wraiths existed regardless of the madoka rule change then the magical girls would fight wraiths as well as witches. wraith should be something related to madoka's rule overwriting, we should get some answers on that soon.
a point of consideration is how the "familiar become witches eventually" fits , sicne for all the spin offs, we have never ever witnessed that event, unlike let's say, magical girls becoming older as a few have reached their 20s or maybe even older.

No.7776

>>7775
The wraiths are related to Madoka's rule overwriting in the way that the despair has to be embodied in something other than witches now that witches no longer exist. It would make a lot of sense that the wraiths also used to exist before witches did, then the ancient magical girls killed all of the wraiths and after they became witches, there was no need for more wraiths to be born.

It probably was conventional stuff, considering QB's talk of how advanced humanity wouldn't be had the incubators's not intervened.

I like to imagine that during the early magical girls era, Kyubey's race didn't know exactly what would happen to a magical girl when she ran out of magic and eventually found out when she became a witch. And when she was defeated, they researched it and found the benefits to their entropy problem.

It's probably an outlandish theory of mine, but I thought it made sense.

Smart people know that most internet instructions on creating bombs written by FBI agents. They describe not work or not effective design. Or you risk explode when manufactured. This is to counteract terrorists.

With a good "Civil Selfdefense" school textbook Homura would make an excellent bomb and would easily finished off Walpurgis Night in first timeloop, I think.
