>>13276>The fact Homura's sheild, a memory of the old world
The idea that memory equals equivalent power is incongruous. By stealing the magical power of Homura, they are able to manifest the powers of Mami, Sayaka, Kyoko, Homura, (magical girl) Madoka, and Gretchen, because Homura's soul contained memories of these entities. Logically, that would mean Homura would be able to manifest all of the above before her magic was stolen simply by virtue of having memories of all these, which is clearly not the case.
> At best they could freeze time, but were never able to reset it
Unreasonable, especially since thew two are linked. They stole from Homura, Mami's powers, Sayaka's powers, Kyoko's powers, Madoka's powers, Gretchen's power, and time stop, but conveniently not time reversal?
>it's not clear what is "mutant" about the mutant Wraiths
It's seemingly clear: Homura's memories are apparently so powerful/paradoxical that the wraiths, upon stealing Homura's power, are able to physically manifest those memories. The problem is that even if you accept this, Homura never had memories of Mami's parents.
>She was nonchalant in the series too
She had, what, 2 lines in episode 12? In contrast, she constantly recurred in WA, which would offer at least some room for consistent characterization, which the manga fails to deliver.
