Yeah, I don't see how anyone could think why any of that would mean "we aren't getting a sequel". That doesn't even make sense.

>>Magia Record

Don't forget making mad profit as well. PMMM was hugely successful. I doubt they need to do any sort of "fundraising" in order to fund a new movie. Given the success of the franchise as a whole I can't imagine them having any trouble getting funding for that.

Considering even after all these mainstream hits, Madoka hit #2 of a public poll "greatest TV anime of all time" (the #1 being tiger and bunny)

Ya it's extremely successful in Japan, so far to the point where there are multiple stories trying to match the standard PMMM had set.

Most of the Kirara spinoffs don't move a lot of units, so their sales entry were left empty for the longest time:

https://wiki.puella-magi.net/Sales#Spin-offs

More recently, 2ch made a website that estimates print sales based on sales rankings:

http://book-rank.net/rank/data.cgi?mode=find2&mode2=&writer=Magica%20Quartet&bt=2

For example, here's what they estimated for Mami's Everyday Life:

Vol1: 40,872
Vol2: 43,412
Vol3: 34,563
Vol4: 32,818

Hey Wiki bro, can we get this shit deleted from the Rebellion page? The "Criticism" section is just one assmad rant that belongs in the YMMV section of TvTropes.

"One of the main concerns regarding the new ending in "Rebellion" is that Homura's action renders Madoka's sacrifice and message of hope meaningless. The ending from the anime series and the previous film loses its impact and this causes concern among the fans who became emotionally invested on Madoka's message of hope.

Another problem is the devolution of the Homura character, starting from a weakly girl and evolving into a strong magical girl, Homura becomes what many consider to be a strong underdog who overcame many obstacles to protect what she treasures. However, in "Rebellion" we see what appears to be the beginning of the unraveling of the Homura character, we see the fall of a strong magical girl into what it is presumed to be a form of madness.

Many fans regard the movie as not being genuine nor true to the original anime series, with various far-fetched and abrupt deviations. They think of it as a mostly commercial moneygrab that contains little carefully crafted content, just as many other anime productions in Japan do. They still regard the original ending of the anime as canon."

It's cool, I had a feeling that's what you meant. All this talk on the theme aside, in terms of how this thread started, I think I agree on it possibly being rewritten so it sounds less like a emotion-filled rant, possibly making note that Rebellion's controversy is notable for how many people's interpretation of the series may have contributed to various reactions to it, and to this day creating a divide within the fanbase with not much of a middle ground? Laconically–rewrite the criticism in a more professional tone and point out that split the fanbase and general opinion when it first came out.

 No.14191

>>14190
Sounds good to me.
Even though I don't personally agree it certainly is true that Rebellion was controversial and IMHO any encylcopedic discussion of the film ought to mention that. However, I draw the line at posting inaccurate information & fan rants.

pretty much every girl accepted that she's gonna die doing this job. not turning into an Eldritch Abomination is definitely an improvement over the last system.
Madoka couldn't fully fix it, but her world was still a hell of a lot better than what has been before.

I'll agree that it's technically an improvement, but I think it's a very small one in the grand scheme of things. The staff went to great lengths to show us just how similar things are pre- and post-wish.

>>Madoka couldn't fully fix it

This is actually an intersing point of discussion. I can't help but wonder if she *could*, but simply didn't. We can see that she was powerful enough to literally re-create the entire universe, so perhaps she could have done better? Or perhaps the point is that no matter how powerful she was she couldn't really affect that much change? I need to go back and rewatch the dialogue with Sayaka when they're viewing Kamijo's performance at the end of the TV.

>> I can't help but wonder if she *could*, but simply didn't.

We saw a little of that with Sayaka. She healed Kamijo's hand but she didn't heal the rest of his body. I got the impression that she *could* have healed him completely but she ended up making a more limited wish due to simple oversight.

most of the magical girls, save arisa and potentially tsubaki/chisato, all contracted at a young age. even if you say suzune contracted at 13 and is currently 18, this would put the hinata twins at around 9 at the time of their contracts. kanata, im unsure, but she looks fairly young as well. in a sense, does that mean a lot of the magical girls in suzune are actually veterans, excluding arisa?

I haven't read Suzune, but if what you are stating is correct I'm not sure what other conclusion one could draw.

I've seen non-worksafe images deleted in the past but I couldn't find any sort of rules or anything like that for the forum.

Looking away is not "accepting" of anything. Quite the opposite really. And it's not like takes any effort to look away since it's on a separate board entirely.

 No.14200

>>14199
yeayea, i will look away while-again- people get more free room for drawing out their sexual desires on fictional children/early-teens and train their brain mentally till this gets on a "normal" basis for them and invite other sick people to that board to drool over it. Tell me a reason why we should support giving mental sickness, in this case pedophilia, more playfield till it gets worse with these "artists'" & watchers' mental state till they fuse fiction with reality instead NOT giving free room and either let them go on other already existing boards or knock them some sense with words so they'll go get some therapy, just because its apart from this board. i do know VERY well that you fully understand what i'm trying to point out here with my broken english. it's so wrong and totally dissapointing. Just because those fictional children dont exist and "no people get harmed" doesnt mean that it will stay like this. The moment those people spend seconds to hours watching drawings of children having sexual intercourse or get…from older persons and after this shut down their drawing tablets and pcs and go out while children and early-teens are playing outside… it's so wrong. what a letdown. pardon? "not like takes any effort to look away"? i'm not a lazy person as you can see. i'm not trying to be a hero on the internet, i can't change much. but still, i don't look away because this brings consequences in the future.
There's still many stuff unsolved with pmmm, new merchs are coming out, we will maybe get new infos to pmmm4 in the next years… but well, lewding an anime that won 12+ awards is 'necessary'. Because "we can draw what we want, it's the internet".
after all, it takes effort getting a hold of yourself.

 No.14201

>>14200
Here's my take on the subject.

The stated ages of characters in Anime (or comics, video games, etc.) has nothing to do with reality. Plenty of characters who are supposedly very young are drawn with figures that would make a 25-year-old jealous. And vice versa. (Etna, anybody?)

So what does matter? Appearance. We humans are wired to be attracted to the opposite sex, post-puberty. It is completely normal, biologically, for a man to be interested or even aroused by a depiction of a female displaying post-pubescent sexual characteristics–breasts, shapely hips/buttocks, pubic hair, etc. And likewise a woman would find a male with a broad chest, defined adam's apple, facial and pubic hair, and an adult-sized penis to be attractive if not arousing. I don't think anyone can argue that there is anything wrong with that perspective. If the character is drawn with post-pubescent sexual characteristics I don't see the problem with other post-pubescent people being interested. It is nature, after all.

…to be continued….

 No.14202

>>14201
That said, I don't think it's even remotely reasonable to call someone "sick" for looking at pictures which are attractive to them.

Now then. We do have laws about exploiting children (i.e. child pornography), which I completely support. However the purpose of those laws is to prevent children from abuse, especially from that at the hands of older people in positions of power. And it's not limited to sexual matters either. We likewise do not allow minors to purchase airplane tickets, to rent motor vehicles, to enter into legal contracts, to get tattoos or body piercings, or to purchase hazardous goods like firearms, fireworks, dangerous chemicals/medications, alcohol, and tobacco. The purpose of the law is to protect the 'innocent'. Given that artwork does not involve any harm to any person (of any age), I fail to see how those laws would even apply.

Now, is there some smaller % of the art out there which ventures into "sick" territory". In my opinion, yes. Absoloutely. But there has never been a study that has found that people consuming that sort of fictional media have ever gone on to do anything in real life. If anything I'd think the opposite would be true. Fiction allows people to explore things that they cannot or would not do in real life. It provides a 'safe' outlet because no actual people are being harmed. If you know of a study which suggests otherwise then please link it, I'd love to read it.

 No.14203

>>14202
…and as for the "sick" stuff. As I posted above, I agree that some subset of the lewd stuff qualifies as sick. I'll refrain from mentioning details since this board is NSFW. But yes, I agree some of it is sick. Do I want to ban it? Absolutely not.

This extends to all sorts of things, not just anime drawings. Books, movies, music….there's examples of all of that which I would call sick. But who am I to force my opinion upon others? And good intentions can very quickly become an even worse evil than that we aim to stamp out.

 No.14139

Not him, but I think most people assume movie because the entire series is in movie format and it’s almost completely unheard of for a canon movie to be followed up by a tv series. They also still use Madoka Movie Project copyright on the official concept movie material.

Secondly, Shinbo and Urobuchi have said over the years that they’re struggling on ideas. Shinbo said in the final regular issue of Kirara Magica that they’re still putting together ideas together, which means a scenario and script weren’t even close to being done back in 2017. Rebellion was ultimately a movie because they couldn’t pull enough material to make a season 2 and this will likely be a movie as well for the same reason. As epic and grand as everything might seem, it ultimately comes down to the same clash of ideals between Madoka, Homura, and Kyubey that the anime is built on. The origin of witches are no longer a mystery and we already know the world is fake, so there’s much less to drag out a 2 hour movie, let a lone a 12 episode series. Wraiths and Devil Homu are our only real wild cards.

tl;dr
Movie
-format continuity
-lack of material for a full 12 episode series

>Source of that info?

Kirara Magica 20.

>Madoka Grand Order

Yeah, Kirara Magica never impacted the anime continuum before and we’ve had 2 mobage games since the 2011 series, so Magia Record’s existence is pretty irrelevent to any sequel discussions.

I remember the concept trailer, I was just wondering if there was anything beyond that that I wasn't aware of. Having been an anime fan for two decades I've gotten my hopes up more than once over awesome previews, openings, or trailers, only to find that the finished product was quite different.

Now I do agree that the new production certainly ought to have high standards–they set the bar very high with the recap movies and Rebellion.

>>most people assume movie
I agree, I was just wondering if we had any more to go on than assumption.

>> it’s almost completely unheard of for a canon movie to be followed up by a tv series

It happens. Heck, it's happening right now with the CCS "Clear Card" TV. Plus there's also the option of them doing an OVA, which could be of any length.

>>Rebellion was ultimately a movie because they couldn’t pull enough material to make a season 2

Quote (from where?) or speculation?
