So I just signed up and noticed the witch pages…

They don't seem to have many things on them. Fan-Art to be precise and stuff like that.

Can we add some more Fan-Art to the Witch pages? I've found some nice bits :)

So I've just found out that there's this Rebellion Rakugaki-Note book that was apparently sold at Comiket (Comic Market) 86 and Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2014. Can someone please add this to the Puella Magi Wiki (in the Merchandise section)? Thanks so much!

Huh!? That's so old. It was uploaded quite a long time ago. Here!

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.

So I just found this gem at a used bookstore. It seems to be a volume 1-5 compilation of a doujinshi series. I don't suppose I could find the other individual chapters out thus far (6, 7, and 8) anywhere online? These 5 were really intense.

So, I'm a relative newcomer to PMMM—I didn't see it until a few months ago. I've read that the ending of Rebellion was highly controversial so I'm interested to hear everyone's opinions on it.

My personal thoughts:
-I was not expecting what happened, and I was certainly shocked when it did. But that was short-lived; I didn't find the ending out of character.

-I admit I didn't notice this the first time I watched Rebellion; but having seen it several more times it contains a great deal of foreshadowing.

I'm curious what everyone else thought?

Manga version is not canonical IIRC. It's just a different take with different imagery (some of which is because of the differences between the media), so it's best to keep it out of discussions relying on the anime.

>Regarding balance theme

Isn't one of Madoka's overall messages also that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"? Which would fit perfectly with Rebellion and Homura.

Except the same imagery is in the movie.

>Isn't one of Madoka's overall messages also that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"?

I would say no. Themes and messages are of course subject to viewer interpretation, so you can argue it either way. However, prior to Rebellion that was not a popular idea at all.

Madoka's actual message about good intentions is more along the lines of what Mami said in episode 3: "If you're going to grant a wish for someone else, then it's vital that you know what it is you're wishing for. Miki-san, do you want his wish to come true, or do you want to be the person who made his wish come true? They might sound the same, but they're completely different."

In other words, most "selfless" choices aren't really selfless if you take the time to scrutinize them.

>> "the road to hell is paved with good intentions"

In my opinion it's a bit debatable.

On the one hand that concept was never explicitly stated in any of the dialogue (that I can recall, anyway).

On the other hand, I'm not sure it needs to be. It certainly seems to match a lot of the plot elements, even in the original TV series. You might say that every magical girl's story follows that to some extent: they make their contract with good intentions only to fall as a direct consequence of that contract, so I don't think it's inappropriate to say that PMMM has that theme.

Even in the case of Sayaka's wish I think the intentions are good. In her discussion with Mami there are two options considered, and I'd say that both are good intentions:

Either she means to selflessly heal someone else with no reward in sight, or she wants to fight for justice & maybe pickup a boyfriend along the way. While the latter might be somewhat selfish, I'd still say the intention is good.

No.8792

>>8790

Actually, Mami's trying to get Sayaka to think about why she's making her wish. If she's doing it to make it possible for them to be together, it could backfire, but if she's doing it for his happiness, she's more likely to see it fulfilled without a problem. In this case, being more selfless wouldn't have "paved the road to hell." It could've avoided it.

>>Mami's trying to get Sayaka to think about why she's making her wish

Yes, I get that. Agreed 100%.

My point was that the outcome doesn't really matter from the perspective of discussing the theme "the road to hell is paved with good intentions".

It was not discussed in that particular conversation, but Sayaka mentioned more than once that she wanted to fight witches in order to save people, promote justice, etc. Her intentions were always good, and the moment she made the contract she was on the hell-bound road.

So the producers have repeatedly mentioned that they are interested in pursuing additional anime, whether that's a TV series, 4th movie, etc. Any recent news on this front or is there just a bunch of discussion and nothing concrete? Share anything you might have found out.

Answer is, no one seems to know, even the creators themselves.

Director Shinbo and Producer Iwakami have said they'd like to do more Madoka, but they have nothing concrete.

Personally I'm hoping for some sort of interquel OVA series,though there is no indication of that happening.

I'm hoping for an anime of the manga spin offs. I'm curious if they will add more to them and/or make them seem more darker.

No.8791

This sort of thing is always a mixed bag for me.

On one hand, yes, it would be fantastic for there to be more of a show that I love.

But there is a downside: do the new episodes or movies maintain the same quality of the original or do they "jump the shark"?

I would love it if there was new PMMM that fit the existing story and maintained the same high quality that we saw in Rebellion. But they have set themselves a very high bar. It would not be easy to make a continuation on the same level. But if they did, it would be amazing.

Animating one of the spinoffs would be more "safe" in that regard.

I'm curious on what Madoka fans think of fan works, in particular fan characters (magical girls and/or witches) and stories as well.

The specific question I have to ask is, what would be considered bad in a fan work/character/story? Like, what is a big no for the creator to do that makes their fan work not good?

Personally, I dislike FCs that know the truth of the magi system for no reason. Like, they have no reason to know they just know what it's all about.
I also dislike powers and wishes that make no sense to make in the FC's back story.


And another question I want to ask is, what would you like to see in a fan work?


(Not meant to bash other people's creations, I'm just curious of other people's opinions is all. Reason I ask is that I want to create a story myself but I'm unsure about adding certain things in it that could possibly make it the odd one out.)

So looking at the Disney classic Fantasia I notice its said that the entity rising from the volcano, Chernabog, supposedly does so on Walpurgisnacht.

Assuming for a moment that a Magical Girl were to stand in for Chernabog what might she do when Walpurgisnacht (the witch) arrives ?

Also what might happen to her
when Walpurgisnacht no longer exists (as of Madoka's wish) ?

I'm afraid I don't understand your question.
Are you asking if Chernabog appears on Walpurgisnacht (and you're assuming its a witch too)?

No.8726

>>8725

Basically if a Magical Girl represents Chernabog, what would she be doing when the witch Walpurgis Night arrives in her area and what would happen to her when Walpurgis Night ceases to exist.

No.8728

what if chernabog is the walpurgis of the wraiths?

No.8744

>>8728

Whatever Chernabog is it would have to gain an influx of power on Walpurgis Night.

Not sure if that means Chernabog would be another Witch or a Magical Girl.
