** [[TheMovie The third movie of the film trilogy]] will be a continuation of the story. WordOfGod has stated that it began as a plot for the second season that simply wasn't long enough for a TwelveEpisodeAnime. He also confirmed that [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-13/madoka-magica-story-will-not-end-in-3rd-film the story will not end with the 3rd movie, but he cannot personally predict how the story will unfold]]. A trailer for the third film is TheStinger for the second movie.* SerialEscalation: While the whole anime decides to do this from the get-go, a specific mention should go to the first Drama CD: [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Drama_CD_1 The wiki's page on it]] ([[CaptainObvious has spoilers]]) decides to explain that '''Episode 10 was ''light''''' when comparing the versions of Homura's DarkAndTroubledPast. This is extremely appalling after you have watched said episode and LighterAndSofter would be the ''last'' thing you would ever want to describe it, since it was ''[[DarkerAndEdgier one of the darkest ones in the entire series]].''

* ShipSinking: In an interview, Gen Urobuchi sank fan-favorite ship Madoka x Homura, saying that Homura's feelings for Madoka were ultimately platonic rather than romantic.

* PsychologicalHorror: The city is cold and sterile. An unspeakable atmosphere of alienation and helplessness permeates it. The witches are [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm completely incomprehensible]]. Something about the supposedly-helpful mascot is very, ''very'' off. MagicalGirl [[XMeetsY meets]] ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness''[[spoiler: namely, ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'']]; indeed.

** [[Anime/MagicalAngelCreamyMami Mami]] [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tomoe]] and Kyoko [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura]] have some very familiar names.

Added DiffLines:

** The dream in the beginning and Sayakas arc are also full of freemason symbolism. The checker boards symbolize the life of person who have not fully understand the truth and are therefore destroying themselves. (Because of this, Sayaka in nearly all important plot points to her as well as in her death, stands on a checkered floor.) While the stairs Madoka climbs up before seeing the battle against Walpurgisnacht in her dream represent initiation/learning.
