Magica Madoka Rebellion

Post by Archengeia on Wed Jun 17, 2015 1:45 am

...sssooo I finally got around to watching this. Did a little research. Keeping my thoughts to myself but curious what those of you who watched this think.

...also, there's another story after this one, right? Because there, uh, should be.

Sorry, no word of a new movie after Rebellion.

And all things considered, I think that ending was the best ending that setting could get. Not a happy ending, but they avoided the worst outcome possible imho.

Eeehhhhh it's like you're playing Checkers and suddenly the board pieces are swapped for chess. The entire landscape of the situation has so utterly changed that it seems a shame not to continue it, especially with so many pieces still in play at this point.

Never watched it, sorry. The only other magic girl anime I ever watched is Cardcaptor Sakura. That one had a good and definitive ending though, if you count the movies.

I'll agree with that being a strange place to end the series, but they are also at a point of semi-eternal mundanity for obvious reasons, so until at least Madoka notices Something-Is-Very-Very-Wrong™, it would be kinda of boring and makes for poor storytelling.

Also, Zeiss, Madoka is a great voyage, worth the time even if you are not into magical girl stuff because... it stops being about magical girl stuff pretty quickly.

Edit: Noticed the spoilers. Stupid me.

Interesting. Thank you for the recommendation Javan. I also liked Cardcaptor Sakura because after a while, it stopped being solely about the magic and the awesome costumes.

It also helps that it's only 12 episodes and a movie so far Zeiss.

Wish I could discuss the movie with you guys but I haven't gotten around to watching it yet. I love the series though and I hear it ends up at an interesting point after the movie.

Movie Spoiler:
Something about Homura becoming the anti-Madoka and subverting the Law of Cycles with her selfish love. I always find their use of religious symbolism fascinating and I hope the movie lives up to the show in that regard.
