Puella Magi Madoka Magica:

[up]x8 What it doesn't explain is why she's helping the girls with their rolls instead of anything else. But then maybe she wanted to watch the random costume-changing girl putting glasses and tails and wings on everyone. (Kinda want to know the storyline just to see if it tries to make any sense at all.)

[up][up] Truly, you are a kind and merciful god.

Oh right, I was going to be a cruel despotic god who organized deathmatches for my personal amusement. I completely forgot that I wanted to do that.

Well, I'm not really feeling it so lets just stick with the tacos for now.

[up] I'm not trying to be. Its just easier.

The Internet is often fast and horrible.
Madokami should learn to delegate. Start appointing some angels to do her work on the metaphysical side and clerics and paladins as agents in the physical world, instead of insisting on doing everything herself.

[up][up][up]The story is something complicated but so far as I understand is that in another timeline after Madokami ascension, Homura somehow returns the puella back in time to fix things and save everyone, after both are defeated by WN.

[up]x3 It's even worse if you do it by accident. It'll look almost like your true nature.

[up][up] But she has to shoulder the burden herself and everything. For god reasons.

[up] After the ascension? I figured it was just a vague thing where you died in a timeline and then I guess they lost to Walpurgisnacht and Homura went back and you were still conveniently there the next timeline.

[up]Yep, This is supposed to be after Madokami. But somehow it is resolved in the end, but I haven't got so far.

[up][up][up][up][up]Tacos are much more effective from an evangelical standpoint than deathmatches. Deathmatches are entertaining and all, but what are you going to do when your worshipers match themselves to death.

[up][up][up][up]She said she wanted to do it with her own hands, and she meant it.
The above post is probably not entirely serious.

/u/ is discussing the megucas power level after a certain chart's leak even though it's confirmed to be out of date.

As follow; offence, speed, initial magic (the magic generated by the wish, scaled by its influence to the world itself), defense, stamina, add. magic (supports used to enhance initial magic), total

Madoka (3rd timeline): 6, 4, 1.5, 5.5, 5.5, 0.5, 23

Mami: 4.5, 3, 3.5, 1, 2.5, 4, 18, 5

Kyouko: 3, 4, 0, 3.5, 3, 3.5, 17

Madoka (2nd timeline): 3.5, 2.5, 1, 0, 3, 2.5, 12.5

Homura: 0, 0, 7, 1, 0.5, 2, 10.5

Sayaka: 1.5, 2, 2.5, 0.5, 1, 0, 7.5

Madoka (1st timeline): 0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1, 0.5, 1, 4

In /a/, There's a witness of the premier, and confirming some scenes are not really just retool.

Highlight:

- Conformation that Mami's Soul Gem shattered when mogu-mogu'd, as in Shaft shows the Soul Gem shattered when Charlotte bites Mami.

- Several scenes were cut or meld together.

- Four new transformation sequence; Sayaka in water, Kyouko dancing with her pole, TWO just for Mami.

- The movie covers 8 episodes.

- Credens Justitiam sung by Kalafina in Japanese.

- The Witches get their own battle themes. Elsa Maria has a choir of Conturbatio (Sayaka's theme).

See the rest here [1]

[up] "The very last part of the new ending animation features an unknown pink silhouette -most likely that of Godoka- with another silhouette that is somewhat smaller and floating inside its belly, or womb?"

u wot m8?
I'm getting too old for this ghost-catching tomfoolery.
You know how sometimes people match all the characters in a series to one of the Major Arcana? I know it's really corny and meaningless, but I kind of love stuff like that. And I was reading about the Strength card and realized that Madokami with Kyubey would be freakishly fitting. She used passion and self-control to direct her immense power towards a better achievement than hitting things or revenge or fixing the petty concerns of her mortal life. She's both the girl and the tamed lion, but Kyubey can be there so the visual matches. Girl with kitty-like creature!

Um... yeah. This was not a valuable use of my time. I still think it's a perfect fit.
[up]x5 Well last I heard the storyline didn't go beyond Charlotte, but I haven't been keeping up with related discussions or playing the game for a while now, so it might have updated all the way to Walpurgisnacht.

[up]x3 Up to the end of eight, huh? Most people did seem to consider that more likely. So the second movie will cover only four episodes and maybe they'll expand more on episode ten. I'll need to see the first just for the new Charlotte battle, it looks like, whenever it becomes properly available worldwide.

... haven't read the whole thread yet but someone brought up the possibility of the second movie playing And I'm Home. I can almost see that happening.

Heh, Madoka listening to the new opening in the music shop.

That's a possiblity for the third film I hadn't considered... though I'm not sure what it's doing in the first one instead of the second

Hello.
@ ala alba: My excitement for this movie continues to grow. grin

@ worm: Hm, jealousy... meh, whatever you say. Oh, this reminds me: You criticize
Ace for using TTGL(an anime, as in, the same medium as this show) as an example for the a plot possibility yet you stay silent when jacob uses Dr Who and The Legend of Zelda (a live-action show and a video game respectively) as examples of why Madoka isn't a main character. Why is that? I find that quite skewed and biased. In fact, I've noticed a general trend of you two sucking up to one another for multiple consecutive posts without being on topic at all. Can't stand for yourselves? I'd find one of your previous sigs quite hypocritical then.

Dude, there's a difference between citing a show that runs on Rule of Cool when making a point about physics and when making a point about characters and their mainness. Characters, main and otherwise, are an integral part of virtually all storytelling. The Big Crunch, less so.
The above post is probably not entirely serious.
I still can't believe people actually argued about that. The title of "main character" barely means anything. It doesn't mean that they have to be everyone's favorite or they're the most important character in their universe or they're always right or they've accomplished the most within the story or anything like that. It only means that they fit a certain role within the narrative structure.
Trap cosplaying as Homura was certainly something funny to hear.

Anyhow, the movie condensed far more than I had antecipated, for a series of 12 episodes to get the first 8 all put into a single movie can only mean that Shinbo's words about an extended Homura flashback were true.

The second movie will be pure hell about Homura seeing her friends dying or turning into witches, expect Candeloro and Ophelia to make an appearance.

@smiley: I was mainly joking about TTGL. I don't care if someone uses a comparison like that. I apologize if my being a smartass didn't shine through the computer screen.

And as for that "past sig" being "hypocritical"? If I let The Protomen determine my outlook on life I'd be pretty damn miserable because those albums are just about the darkest, most pessimistic things ever. Not to say they aren't good and I don't love them. But still. I can "suck up" to Boxcar all I want. And it's totally on topic to talk about toppling the dynasty of pink. Because tacos are awesome.

Anyway. I think trying to fit four hours worth of episodes into 2 or so hours seems tough but I suppose they did it successfully, seeing as I've seen no one make major complaints about feeling shafted.

I didn't really topple it. Apparently godhood works by the move your feet, lose your fief rules.

And who even memorizes sigs for the purpose of gotcha moments? Thats pretty petty.

@Ikiniks: Besides the joking part, just because something is in the same medium, doesn't mean comparisons between them work better than inter-medium ones.

t Mami's Soul Gem shattered when mogu-mogu'd, as in Shaft shows the Soul Gem shattered when Charlotte bites Mami.

I suppose there'd be more of a need to show that exact detail in the movie, considering you'd find out within an hourish that "OMG she totes didn't die!" Nevermind that clearly she did. shrug.
I write some fanfiction. Satori's Tale is done... but I'm not.
