* [[AllThereInTheManual The third drama CD for Madoka Magica]] reveals that [[spoiler: Kyoko's younger sister]] was a bit like Yuma - she was even a ThirdPersonPerson. [[spoiler: This explains Kyoko's and Yuma's relationship - and might be why Kyoko insists on not being called oneechan.]]
* The first time Mami and Kyoko go up against [[spoiler: Kirika's witch]], they lose easily, in part due to getting in the way of the other's attacks. Makes sense given their different attack styles, long range and melee and that Kyoko isnt a team player. However, on the second try, they and Yuma are able to seamlessly work together to take out [[spoiler: witch!Kirika]] with no hassle. When you read ''The Different Story'' and the third drama CD which reveals that [[spoiler: Mami and Kyoko once worked as a MagicalGirl duo before Kyoko went sour from her PaterFamilicide, then their teamwork in this spinoff makes sense. They've done it before, they just need to get used to fighting alongside the other again.]]

* Symmetry Diamond shows us that Oriko and Kirika would have not gone after Madoka in other timelines. However, what about Homura's personality? It's easy to assume that we never see the two in the anime because [[spoiler:Homura kills them off in every timeline following Oriko Magica]].

* Kirika's powers are either to speed time for herself up or slow time for everyone else down; either way, it's got to play merry hell with her metabolism. That's why she's always gorging on sugar!


* Oriko's magical girl costume is a white dress; Kirika's is a black suit. The bride-and-groom imagery is about as subtle as a brick.



* Yuma's introduction has her being rescued from a witch by Kyoko. Now suppose that didnt happen in other timelines(either Kyoko never arrived or came too late), then Yuma would've died along with her parents. It might explain why Oriko doesnt become involved in other timelines. Without Yuma to use as a RedHerring against Kyubey, she doesnt or cant form a plan to kill Madoka (Yuma was in the 2nd vision she saw immediately following Gretchen Kriemheld).

* What we're shown of Oriko and Kirika after their battle with Homura goes to show that, had Oriko survived her battle with Homura, that would be the point where she becomes a Witch, rather than continue life as a Magical Girl.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not to mention the anime implies Kazuko is a family friend.


*** and in Symmetry Diamond Oriko says she saw a vision that showed Yuma would had died from her abuse if she stays with her mother of cardiac arrest caused by the abuse she gets.

* When you think about it, Oriko is a brilliant foil to Homura in that like Homura, she only exists in her current form as a direct result of the girl's manipulation of the timelines. In the initial timeline, Madoka was a decently powerful magical girl who died fighting Walpurgisnacht. Oriko's wish wasn't to kill Madoka Kaname, it was to find "a reason for me to live". In the first few timelines, she presumably would have found that fulfillment in her duties as a magical girl, or in her relationship with Kirika. Only after Madoka became a world-ending threat would her purpose have shifted to averting the end of the world.
