When I come up with my theories for the madoka world I can’t just come up with them on the fly like many other people. It could be days, weeks or even months until my head will just suddenly go “It finally adds up!”.
For a show I’m not that interested in I sure love figuring out what happened…..even if it’s hard to show other people were i’m looking from.
* I have a hard time explaining the first half of the explanation to people without finding the image of madoka been tied together with string.*
The show is about a bunch of girls who sell there souls to a figurative devil in exchange for a selfish wish. All the girls get given there soul in a small container and when it becomes too black hatches into there true punishment (There adult selves). when the witch is born it’s soul is no longer a gem but a seed that will be refilled by another new girl. (there soul is eternally imprisoned in there own personal hell and magical girls are adding to the torment by filling then with there dirt).
*T_T madoka is dark.*
Remember magical girls are nothing more the puppets being driven by the soul gem.
What would you say if I told you nothing in madoka actually happened?
You would probably go: WTF
Everything that happens in this timeline only exists in Houmra’s little bubble and in no way effects anyone outside of it…..except god madoka who is one half of Madoka she still in motion…..even thogh there is no longer a need for her or magical girls anymore due to the power they generate (it’s very complicated!)
XD I always joke with my friend that this anime should be call Homura because the main story is very much about her. ^-o This will also explain why I didn’t like he original ending.
“I want to become strong enough to protect her!”
“Your wish has surpassed entropy”
What the heck does that mean??? A load of madoka fan choose to ignore this however, to me this is the most important piece to the puzzle.
The events that take place just like the other magical girls are just the stepping stones to her own personal hell where madoka will always just be out of her grasps…but here is the problem. kyubey just like the other people trapped in Homura’s web don’t know they are eternally relieving the same loop (a side effect of the wish). she doesn’t really go back in time per-say, she creates starts and ends in a particular timeline in different realities that all connect to the same place.
when god madoka makes her with she makes it using the affect of Homura’s wish unknowingly linking the two gems as sisters. god Madoka gem can’t exist without Homura’s gem which is trying to punish her (god Madoka has no dirt because Homura is carrying it all). *The idea of madoka killing her own witch just seemed silly to me (there had to be more to it).*
The main word that need to be highlighted when talking about the 3rd movie is “rebellion”. what is Homura rebelling against?
She is rebelling against kyubey and the hell she has been put thogh in order to get a wish that she felt was never granted. Unlike other magical girls she gets what she wants by taking part of madoka away to trap her within Homura’s personal hell.
God madoka still exist along with Homura’s puppets body.
world one is Madoka’s power
world two is Homura’s power
world three is the seal that stops everything from moving within Homura’s timeline.
Homura is a magical witch: she has not been consumed by the darkness but, she is not free from the darkness (she can only exist within her soul gen prison).
T_T If you really want to make things truly confusing in the Epilogue Homura meets the spirit of Madoka as a fox telling her it’s ok to give in to your witch half now. This restarts the events of movie 3 and explains why she was yelling “I need to die here” while the girls were trying to save her.
If you save Homura the loop will only start again.
First of all I’m not a fan of ether show however, I can appreciate the mechanic of each show.
Day break illusion: Could you be a magical girl and live with the knowledge that you murder people.
Madoka: Homura wants to save Madoka from her own fate. (You only need to watch ep10-12 to understand the plot)
Madoka as a character isn’t very endearing, so I’m giving this point to Day break illusion because it’s the only reason anyone can stomach this show.
Day break illusion: 1/1
Day break illusion: hello show, can I ask how old is your audience? *looks on mal* oh 17+ you say, can I ask one more question: WHY ARE YOU SPOON FEEDING US?
Your audience has the patience to watch characters develop; we don’t need just 1 episode dedicated to explaining who they are.
Madoka: Sayaka steals the show, if wasn’t for her interactions with Mami and Kyoko I would not be able to stomach this anime.
It’s a clear point for madoka.
Day break illusion: 1/1
Day break illusion: milky holmes + space cake = Day break illusion *truly a repulsive combination *
Madoka: ahhhh baby face.
Originally I was really repulsed by madoka’s designs; why would I want to watch young girls who are designed very moe get murdered, tortured and emotional damaged. I still find it unnerving to see characters this young go through this much pain.
On the flipside I don’t like Day break illusion for similar reasons however, with Madoka the characters comprehend/ reflect on their saturation like teens. *for the most part* If Day break illusion wants to be taken seriously then it needs characters that can respond to depressing saturation’s in a realistic manner. (A group of cute moe friends will not work in this saturation.)
I will have to give Madoka the point. *they might look young but they don’t straight up look like young children.*
No point comparing these two. (Madoka is known for its sound track)
Day break illusion: I can sort of remember the opening theme.
Day break illusion: 1/4
I have just shown you all of this information explaining why I think madoka is structurally better however, that is not an excuse to believe that you are smarter than Day break illusion fan.
The madoka fan are starting to turn into the sailor moon fan, they believe that their anime is the only good magical girl show and if you like anything ells you are an inferior fan.
You have the right to watch any magical girl show of your choosing; no one has the right to dictate what anime you should/shouldn’t be watching.
