I always interpreted Kyubey's entropy scare to refer to the heat death of the universe.

If so, this was hardly an imminent crisis. The universe is only 13.8 billion years old, and entropy won't start to become a problem for another Quadrillion years or so (no new stars will be born after that). Even then that is nowhere near "heat death" as far as the universe is concerned.

Our own sun will be gone in only 6 billion years.

Kyubey is trying to prevent something that will occur long after all life in the universe is gone and no galaxies remain. It is about as much of a non-issue as you get.

Its not trying to push any philisophical idea, but its not torture porn either and its certainly not pointless. The show is a tragedy. It wants you to cry, and it wants to shock you. In order to do this, it gives you time to get to know the characters. They aren't anything special, but they exist and have their sad backstories that explain their personalities. They serve their purpose. Madoka must learn from her friends' mistakes and grow up in the process, using her selflessness for power. And while all this happens, you get fancy music and animation.

But galaxies coming to an end is just a result of the suparmassive black holes growing. This will happen when the universe is not even .001% of the way towards entropy.

When black holes "evaporate" and photons have all decayed (10E100 years from now) and you are still only 10% of the way towards heat death.

tl;dr

Stars dying out and black holes forming will end all life long before entropy becaomes an issue. Kyubey was not trying to stop that process, or if he was it was wrong to refer to it as entropy.

It has the opposite effect for me though. I would have liked it more if the proportions were more like the monogatari series, but with the style/colouring of madoka.

And I don't really know the genders of a lot of anime staff so my bad.

I believe we learned this in the 10th Grade here in Canadaland. I would imagine thermodynamics are part of the standard curriculum in most first world countries.

Over trillions of years there will be more and more collisions. They are all constantly absorbing mass.

Eventually the universe runs out of raw materials to make new stars and only black holes remain.

Not necessarily.

>To understand the connection between entanglement and negative entropy we have to go back to Schrödinger’s view of entanglement. When two systems are entangled, we have complete information about their joint state, but have no information about their individual states. If we are erasing the state, as a whole we need not generate entropy (since the state has zero entropy), but if we erase subsystems individually, then each will contribute to entropy generation. The difference between the global and local erasing is negative entropy. To rephrase, if we have to erase some information, it helps to know whether this information arises from the entanglement with another system. Then, by invoking the other system in the erasure, we can actually erase and the environment can lose entropy.

>Landauer’s erasure therefore acquires a new dimension when entanglement is allowed, but even then it still remains fully compliant with the second law. For better or for worse, the entropy of the whole universe still cannot be decreased even with the full assistance of the quantum magic of entanglement and negative entropies of quantum objects.

Manga's okay
Anime's iincredibly slow and boring

>>124930184
Also I thought at first they were just using buzz words that they picked up of wikipedia but it was actually incorporated into story awesomely so I was overhelmed. Based Butcher.

Except they've been doing this for a while. It's very possible that when Joan of Arc contracted heat death was several billion years closer than it is now, but they pushed it back thanks to the many magical girls between then and now.

This is true
Most cute girl comedy shows revolve around some percentage of them being shitheads and the others shit for brains
People autistic enough to have middle school waifus probably don't care for their characterizations or misdeeds in the slightest

>>124930757
I wouldn't waifu them but the kids in these types of shows still behave much better than their real life counterparts.

According to /sci/, it's S = k_\mathrm{B} \ln W \! (1). According to /lit/, it's something about rockets and parabolas and the human spirit.

I dunno, what if? I don't see why that would be happening.

>>124930936
As always stemfags don't bullshit around.

Why don't we have latex on every board?
>>
>>124927806
Disregarding OP getting mad about a word he doesn't know nor can comprehend what 'entropy' means, OP is right when he typed Madoka Magica is pretentious tripe.

There are Faustian themes within Madoka Magica and Urobuchi didn't know of Faust, he know of it like a Cliffnotes version of the story but he wasn't well versed. Also, a lot of fans was fascinated with the mechanica of Homura time abilities and the shield pkus the hour glass and how that work and he stated he didn't think of how it work, he only wrote the story.
>>
Reminder:

There is likely a high possibility for Madoka Magica season two with focus on different characters like the daily life of Mami or Junko past before she birthed Madoka. Basically, Magica Quartet want a slice of life version of Madoka Magica.
>>
>>124931016
As always, liberal arts fags who lurk /sci/ to steal their secrets don't fuck around.

Honestly, I think LaTeX on most boards would just be horrifically abused and lead to cancer.
>>
>>124931148
>the daily life of Junko
This sounds less like a Madoka prequel and more like some nightmarish h-doujin mashup.
>>
>>124931016
You don't need latex to write S=k(log W)
>>
>>124931189
Everything leads to cancer given enough time and people.

>>124931018
InuCurry added the Faust references on their own, just like the Nutcracker motif in Rebellion, or for that matter the witches themselves.
>hurr durr cliff notes butcher is a hack
Homu's time shield mechanics are irrelevant to the story itself. The shield itself was just a prop designed by the production staff once the show was already in production.
>hurr durr scriptwriter didnt design every minute visual detail what a hack
>>
>>124931237
Gen basically conceptualize Junko as his prefer women type, so it wouldn't surprise me if Junko story become a full fledge h-doujin based story.
>>
>>124931322
The point is there were those who thought since Gen was the writer he methodically had everything planned and knew his shit. And yes, Gen is a hack.
>>
>>124931284
Yeah, but adding in a new text function to boards where it has no real utility is just asking for it.
>>
>>124931466
They are retards, you can't attribute everything in a big project to 1 person.

But you were saying that just because the main script writer didn't read enough books the show is somehow bad. I judge a show on its own merits not how many books some production member read.

>Kyuubey on the bookshelf.
Nice foreshadowing. It's little things like this that make Shaft the best.
>>
>>124927494
Don't worry anon. Madoka is shit and really overrated. People only praise it because the plot twist and the so called deconstruction.
>>
>>124927494
It never ceases to amaze me how autistic people will get over this, although not OP here because this is clearly the pretending to be retarded card to start the thread.

I mean, it's just a way to provide Kyubey a background for his actions so that he does not pass off as a villainous figure but instead a morally ambiguous one.

Had Shaft changed their motivation from saving the universe from entropy to saving their race and their neighbors from depleting their reserves and presumably leading to the death of billions, it would not have changed a single thing in the show's main themes and neither on how Kyubey has a legitimate reason for running and keeping the MG system around.

You sound a lot like Tomino complaining about Evangelion, and how mecha is supposed to be. He never really got that Eva is it's own thing- and that it's not entertainment, it's a lesson.
>>
>>124931664
Ah, I should recount my previous statement Madoka Magica itself isn't bad , the story is intriguing for a magical girl anime. Sure, there existed other darker magical anime precedent to Madoka, however, Madoka revamped it.

And I suppose Gen isn't pretentious he gave credit to where it was due
>Q: Madoka seems to be inspired by Goethe's Faust and in Psycho-Pass you quoted works from Max Weber and other German writers. How did you discover them and how did they inspire you?
>A: The designers from SHAFT thought of inserting the quotes from Faust. I only noticed them when people approached me asking about them. My main inspirations are eroge and classical literature.

>>124932214
I'm the one who posted that. SHUT THE FUCK UP you dumbass Evangelion drone.

"Any Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"
-Clarke's Three Laws

First impression when I came into this thread was that OP was mad that Madoka Magica was wrong about how entropy works.

Seems like my opinion is in the minority.
>>
>>124932678
>Clarke
Yeah, better use a SF writer's quote to justify pseudo-science.
>>
>>124932678
That's just Clarke's third law.
>>
>>124927494
This didn't bother me, it was the poor characters and predictable story but the art was nice at least
>>
>>124927621
>it's NOT something intended to be dumb fun like anime should ever bring up.
Anime is just animation that comes out of Japan, and animation is a huge medium.

I have no opinion on Madoka itself because I frankly don't have much interest in watching it but saying that all anime should be mindless entertainment is stupid, especially when some of the most interesting works to come out of Japan touch on deeper themes than flashy battles and which girl is the best.
>>
>>124932919
Excuse me but Madoka Magica can be considered sci fi after the reveal. So whats the problem? Its called Sci Fi because its Fiction not reality.
>>
>>124927621
Wow you must be hard at work trying to reverse entropy if you're so passionate about such a misuses and mockery of the term.
