I just finished this. I think it dragged on too long for the ending, but it's still pretty ok. Seems to set it up for another movie.
What do you think of this?
Yeah, the movie was already pretty unnecessary, and then they added that ending on top of it. Basically I pretend Rebellion doesn't exist, Madoka is still God, and Homura continues to fight.
Worst taste. There's no excuse for rejecting something because it doesn't fit your headcanon. Rebellion was way more ambitious and better executed than the series.
The first part of the movie is a self-conscious tongue in cheek parody of sentai-format magical girl shows. The second is an action movie to rebel against that. The third is a rebellion from that into your standard emo character gets saved by 'Makenai!' main character, the fourth is a rebellion from that and honestly the only interesting part plot wise, because everything else was paint by numbers anime plot. The characters are actually more realized than they were in the series which is a plus. Visually the movie dominates but it's not until the finale that the movie shines. Especially stemming from the fact that
Homura did nothing wrong.
>The first part of the movie is a self-conscious tongue in cheek parody of sentai-format magical girl shows
Is this the new "deconstruction"? It was meant to trick you into thinking you're seeing another time loop, then the depth of the scenes is fleshed out in Homura's gradual realization of what's going on.
>because everything else was paint by numbers anime plot
maybe the concepts in general, but how they're done here is idiosyncratic and polished
Looks like Homuhater changed his tactics.
>wah, I've decided that the movie's unnecessary, so I'm going to ignore its merits and expect everyone else to do the same.
Rebellion ruined homu for homu
the original ending was literally perfect. Rebellion seems like fanfiction in comparison
Rebellion saved Homura from people who thought she's what she's not
>"Rebellion totally ruined Homura, now she is evil and selfish and only cares for Madoka and nobody else!!!"
>Homura literally attempting to murder a broken Sayaka for the sake of Madoka during the series
Rebellion did nothing to spoil her. It merely highlighted the negative, darker aspects of her character such as her obsession with Madoka to the degree where nothing else mattered. Love it or hate it, but stop spouting the whole "Rebellion ruined Homu" bullshit.
Madoka never loved her and wants to kill her. That's the ending.
Everyone hates Homura, nice job being delusional.
She was always shit.
She ruined everything for everyone and Madoka will butcher her for it. Madoka can only be happy with Homura dead and forgotten.
I think we should all sing this petition to honor this great anime https://www.change.org/p/international-astronomical-union-change-the-official-name-of-nebula-ngc-6357-to-the-madokami-nebula
Daily reminder that it was a happy ending before Homura broke it
It was set up for another season. Then they decided not to do that.
And no, it didn't ruin Homura's character. It simply laid bare the parts that people who played her up as the ultimate hero ignored.
I could start digging up screenshots about how heavily it's implied that Madoka kept her feelings despite not keeping her memories, and just how clearly it's shown that she speaks from the heart and all the talk about that being the real her, but that would just start a pointless discussion and you're probably homuhater, so instead I'll just point out that this picture was drawn long before Rebellion, and people will always love Homura for what she did no matter how hard you try
Congratulations on not understanding the post above you and making the absolute same joke. You get a cute Homu as a reward
Not Homuhater, and if you have screenshots to imply shots, by all means, drop them.
I'm curious as to how it's implied that Madoka was speaking from the heart considering it's outright stated she literally had no recollection of anything that happened. Especially since Homura's description of the situation was essentially "you had to do something important and go really far away" when that's not accurate at all.
If anything the scene was another one displaying Homura's character flaws, most notably her inability to effectively communicate.
>It was a wonderful movie
if Rebellion is so great, why didn't it get the academy award for best animated film? The judges didn't even give it a watch
Well there's a few uploaded at

Homufags having retarded anti-Madoka headcanons where Madoka wasn't happy or gave a fuck about Homura or her disgusting feelings is nothing new. Madoka would rather die than be with Homura.
>how heavily it's implied that Madoka kept her feelings despite not keeping her memories
I don't really think so. I think Homura was mistaken when she said "These are Madoka's true feelings" because that Madoka didn't understand anything about the decision she made in making the wish and the factors that motivated that decision.
Homu constructed a narrative out of it that Madoka deep down didn't want to make the sacrifice she made, then acted on that narrative by undoing it. Homura's motivations don't make as much sense if you try to think of it your way.
Homura didn't construct a narrative where Madoka doesn't want to do the sacrifice. Homura is just not ok with Madoka sacrificing. She just made certain Madoke thought of it as a sacrifice and was then "fuck the world I'll save Madoka"
The only issue is responding to homuhater
Yeah, I guess we're prettymuch splitting hairs here. Homu seemed pretty genuinely convinced that Madoka deep down had reservations about leaving her human life behind. I mean, that's exactly what memory-wiped Madoka says and it makes Homura cry and say "I've made a mistake".
I'm just trying to get across that the real Madoka probably doesn't have regrets about making the sacrifice.
Either way, Homura did it precisely because she isn't ok with Madoka sacrificing.
also to stick it to the incubators, but I think Madoka was probably her primary concern
