Headscratchers / Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story

Go To

  • So, did Homura just forget about Walpurgisnacht? Am I missing something here?
    • Given that the OP has her standing in front of Walpurgis Night, I'm pretty sure it just hasn't come up in the story yet.
  • Is there some kind of limit in place for three characters from each installment beyond Madoka itself? I know Oriko, Kirika, and Yuma were the only three to appear in the original Oriko Magica, and Kazumi, Kaoru, and Umika were always treated as the "core" members of the Pleiades Saints, but Suzune and Tart Magica both had tight-knit groups of four, the former which didn't include Suzune herself. I know Pernelle played second fiddle, and Kagari is evil, but are there any plans in place for Eliza, Haruka, and Matsuri? (I understand Sayaka was planned for a proper appearance all former absence long, so what about them?)
    • There was something mentioned about rerunning events during Howa Howa event, so it's possible they're trying to save other girls for the re-runs by applying Rule of Three (there's also speculation of uncapping existing spinoff girls during reruns, and possibly even Oriko event).
      • Well, turns out that at least Matsuri and Haruka have in fact appeared in the game, even if they still aren't playable.
        • As of October 2019 Matsuri and Haruka are playable in the JP servers as part of a second Suzune event, so it isn't out of the question for other spinoff girls to make it into the game.
  • Why are some of the girls' ascended, chibified, or swimsuit forms treated as separate characters? Couldn't they have been separate skins or second forms for the same characters in question?
    • The chibified forms (Madoka-senpai as well as related Felicia and Iroha) are treated as separate characters because they are. Ascended, depends; Ultimate Madoka is technically Madoka only on some level, the other don't have that excuse. Swimsuits... Well, it's gacha. Just look at Fate Grand Order.

How well does it match the trope?
