Is it really wise to have such a critical weak spot exposed like this?
No they cant. They rely on people not knowing anything about them to not identify the soul gem and what it does.
Its location seems to only exist to keep the Mahou Shoujo from being totally invincible.
It doesn't seem to help to much with witches anyway, as Mami demonstrated. Why bother protecing it.
I know right? It's almost as if someone wanted them to become witches already
Pretty sure they had no awareness of the fact that their souls resided in it.
Mami has her gem on her head because she's wise
Homura has her gem on her hand because she's dextrous
Madoka and Kyoko have their gems on their hearts because they're pure
Sayaka has her gem on her midsection because she's a slutbag
Unless it's some other scene I forget, that would be from when Mami goes nuts and shoots Kyoko's gem. She aimed directly for it rather than a typical vital spot. So the safe bet is that they knew by that point.
It's MadoHomu, those are always either fluffy or tragic by default (or both)
Witches don't seem to know enough to target soul gems specifically.
And considering Homura had a building thrown at her and her gem was still intact, I doubt accidentally falling onto your gem or something probably wouldn't break it.
Also they don't seem to have a choice where it gets placed.
I liked at least that they can turn the soul gems into small rings and stuff when they aren't transformed, so they don't have to carry the little egg thing everywhere.
If you're going to use that approach.
She was pretty emotionally stunted, she mainly wanted Sayaka and Madoka to become magical girls because she was lonely, not paying any mind to the life-threatening danger she was putting them in. Though her being smart probably works enough, even if she let her delusions get in the way sometimes.
Homura has hers on her hands because she is more action oriented, I'd guess, she's 'hands on' and is fighting all the time.
Madoka's and Kyouko's would be more "they follow their hearts" not specifically that they're pure, Kyouko's pretty grey in terms of actions, even if she is a good person.
And Sayaka has hers on her stomach because she wanted to be gutsy and brash.
Homura's is kn her hand because she has the ability to manipulate time. Therefore creating a different design each time. Remember the blue hands in Rebellion.
Kyouko's is on her heart because she turned out to have a big heart.
Mami's is on her head because she is "wise" (experienced)
Kyoko's is on her heart because she made her wish so that her father could touch spread his word to the people (good intentions)
Madoka's is not on her heart, rather it hangs from her neck (the albatross that is responsible for the chain of terrible events in the story)
Homura's is on her hand because she wishes to change fate (grabbing hold of destiny)
And Sayaka... is because she made a wish for a boy's love (her soul gem is a clitoris for god sake).
> Therefore creating a different design each time
Does her gem ever change from being a diamond on her hand? Not counting in her witch form.
Also, I think it suits both Kyouko and Madoka better to say that they follow their hearts.
I'm not saying Kyouko is a bad person or uncaring, but she isn't outright caring and loving like Madoka. She's done bad shit there's a pretty heavy implication that she's let people die because she never goes after familiars.
The gems are in their places because they thought they'd look best in those places, not because of any stupid made-up symbolism you dumb idiots come up with
Fuck, in aokiume's original designs they're literally just big-ass plain pink gems (all of them were the same color) hanging off of the hairpin or necklaces and Sayaka's was her fucking belt buckle
It's all just speculation anon, none of us are saying it's fact that all this symbolism shit is true, just coming up with explanations and opinions as to why they could have been placed there aside from just the design being that way. Don't get so worked up.
It's speculation on 4chan anon, I doubt anyone here is posting their opinions and thinking they're complete fact. Just discussing what possible meaning there could be in the placement.
Just because every post hasn't got "IT'S JUST ME SPECULATING BUT" at the start doesn't mean they think everything they're saying is canon.
Homura's was the most obvious in terms of visuals, what with the film and repeating imagery.
Same with Madoka's actually, what with the multiple cut outs of her and everything, showing all the repeating timelines. the whole "eye of god" thing was neat too.
Mami's and Kyouko's looked like they were made just to look pretty, except for the firey look to Kyouko's fitting her image.
I guess Sayaka running into the silhouette of her transformed self kind of fits in with the whole "hero act" thing she so desperately wanted to be true.
>Mech-doka Magical Girls
You're now my best friend.
Makes sense, I liked that they used the biellmann spin to make Mami look like a grief seed.
Also, does anyone know what it says during those quick sections where it shows writing in the witch language? I think it appears in every transformation sequence, is it just each girls witch name or something?
Not that other anon, but who knows, could be that they can't cover it up or some other shitty excuse.
Or as many other people have said, it could just be completely random and they have no control over where it goes.
This, it seems obvious at this point that only direct witch attacks from witches or magical girl weapons will break the gem outright, Otherwise Sayaka would probably have had her gem broken while fighting Maria, considering how many hits to the midsection she took.
Plus Homura's survived unscathed after getting a hit by a building while fighting wallburgers.
It was obviously placed there for aesthetics, not for maximum safety. If you want maximum safety, the most logical thing to do is to take your soul gem and swallow it every time you transform, so it's harder to get to. Or rip open your chest cavity and put it inside your rib cage.
Truth is, any location on your person is equally risky, but it's not like you can put it on the moon or something, there's a range.
Kind of weird that they made it so that when they're not transformed they can carry their soul gem in a small ring, which would be much less likely to get hit and shatter, especially considering the gem part on the ring is so small.
If anything, it'd probably be more useful to them to just be able to keep the gems in their rings while fighting.
I figured considering the gem isn't in use at that point like it is while they're fighting, it might be able to take on a more compact form. and the metal part is just like the metal outlines/holder for their full size soul gem.
You could be right, but regardless it's still a safer alternative to having the full gem out while fighting.
Dare I say it is logical. Homura won't risk having Madoka wanting to be a magical girl. But leaving that aside, while Sayaka and Kyouko are seen wearing the rings, taking a closer look, there are no witch runes written on it. It is just empty.
Those are tbqh real fancy gems and girls do love to wear and display all kind of jewelry. They are already dead as a girl if they are forced to not to wear or display it. They are warriors of course but also magical girls. There's no point of wearing a necklace if you have to wear a theft protection gear on it.
Well, Mami precisely aimed Kyouko's soulgem only because she saw a soulgem goes into a grief seed and a witch in the previous Sayaka's case. That's why she said "If soulgem gives birth to a witch then..." after shoot it. Not likely she exactly knew the soulgem literally contains one's soul so breaking it directly causes the holder's death because QB hasn't told Mami and other megucas what soulgem really is in that time line.
Nevermind this post. I fucked up my logic.
More likely this. It will reveal that Madoka never loved Homura. homura will finally lose it and kill herself for real. Sayaka will despair because she can't stand the sight of Kyousuke and hitomi together. Mami will die in the most anti climatic way possible. And kyouko will be left behind, all alone.
Most of them seem to be unaware that the soul gem actually contains their soul, nor the witches seem to be particularly interested in targetting it. Exposing the soul gem gives no clear disadvtange.
As long as the incubators are thoroughly defeated, everyone will be happy.
And they have big ass witch to fight
Does everyone include coobie themselves?
Mami's on her head because lel she lost her head
Kyouko and Madoka are love and life
Homura is a raging dyke and her soul gem on her hand is the representation of lesbian intercourse
Sayaka's is in the form of a C because she's a cunt
have to balance safety with convenience.
they need access to the gems on a regular basis so it couldn't be placed inside their bodies. And I suppose you could have put it inside an armored box or something, but that'd be a pain to run around with and it might cause some interference between the soul and their body.
plus its not like the gems are fragile, sayaka had her gem thrown off a bridge onto a car and it was perfectly fine.
I think they incorporated fan stuff but in a realistic way. You wanted your yuri and Homura loving Madoka? Well you got it. Homura had to be turned into a witch by an incubator trap, and then she sorta brainwashes everyone into that kind of world. If Homura were to truly like Madoka in the way fans wanted, and was somehow prevented from turning away, then she would turn against Madoka and rip her apart.
Magical breastplate could provide both, safety with convenience
Giving a hard time for witch to touch it and protected against rampaging Puella Magi
I too would like Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly to be an actual series.
They'd lose some mobility however. Given the scale of the threats they face mobility > protection.
Very rarely is the enemy an experienced magical girl so its not something you should be protecting against at expense of protecting yourself against your usual enemy that you fight multiple times a week.
Not really, no. Homura was smart to have hers on her hand where her shield can help protect it.
It is only rare because we only see 5 magical girls. 8 when Madoka LoCs herself and one cheese gremlin in the movie. We don't see much magical girls.
Its rare for multiple reasons. Magical girls don't want to kill each other and it'd be disadvantageous for QB as well so he'd have incentive to prevent that.
The most they do is alphaing each other off the turf, but actually killing each other is beneficial for noone.
And even assuming they did, witches are the far more common enemy. You don't gear yourself to fight the enemy you never have to deal with or expect to deal with if it would decrease your chance at survival in the current battle.
Plus they're magical girls, I doubt a breastplate would offer any more protection than their magical shielding or whatnot already does.
Do you think most magical girls are like Kyouko was before she became friendly, or they are more like Mami and want to work together? I think Mami said that a lot of them fought, but how many magical girls could she really have met?
I don't know if I like this term
What aare the chances of girls not being like that? Not everyone has the same views and i'm sure tbere are magical girls more stronger than the main cast except Madoka.
It's unthinkable to fight against fellow Magical Girl but it's not zero percent. And I'm talking about Magical breastplate of course. Since they can clash each other weapon surely they also can defend against it too
Well, the idea of having highest mobility is good for their usual fight. But they still exposing their soul gem, and that's mean ignoring any other possible threat.
They are young girls though. Do you really think they will want to murder each other? Sometimes girls can be mean but they don't usually go that far. I would think only a small percent of them like Kyouko would be willing to kill each other.
You mean like a metal piece of armor?
Why do you keep doing this everyday? Doesn't it get boring?
Young don't mean shit when you are the one trying to survive. Middle schoolers and even elementary kids fight a lot too. Plus who's to say magical girls don't
get their periods?Girls get really irritable during those times.
I'm not complaining.
I guess in the series we never saw grief seeds as something that was particularly scarce but I would imagine that it could be an issue a lot of times. If it is life or death I could see a lot of them turning on each other. Some like Madoka wouldn't though.
Irritable is one thing, but murderous? If you feel that way maybe you need to do what they did in olden times and lock yourself away in the woods until you are done.
Okay. You might want to try to find a hobby though if the only way to keep yourself entertained is to hate a cartoon character.
Mecha are too unwieldy, Rider forms are were it's at.
Souls are inherited from the mother's side I believe. If the meguca is the mother then it would gain its soul by leeching magic from its mother's soul gem until it is developed.
Homura always wins the best character polls and the worst character polls. People love her or hate her it seems.
It shouldn't be. Kyouko is a good girl at heart. She would suffer from the guilt eventually if she did kill someone.
I was just trying to tease Apple-chan a bit. Despite the outward reaction Apple-chan likes to be teased, even if only a little. I can tell.
There is nothing perverted about hugs or anything else I said.
Just a quick lick on the cheek to see if she tastes like chocolate. It might annoy her but I don't think there is anything lewd about it.
You are the sick one not wanting to lick Kyouoko
That isn't true. Don't worry though, she is safe. If I accidentally overstepped my bounds Kyouko would just put her arm on my forehead and keep me at arms length until I realize my mistake. There isn't any way I could overpower her or force her to do anything weird, even if I wanted to.
Another thing I will add to the list though. I would love to have a piggy back ride with Kyouko. That would be fun.
Please be considerate. We don't want Apple-chan to get a bloody nose.
Are Seyak's tits realy that big
