How could they so decisively bring absolute despair and pervert this series? The ending, the entire thing, was a masterpiece. Then they destroyed it for no discernible reason.
Madoka Magica was perfect as is. They should've let it remain as God had intended it. I do suppose that's kind of the "meta-narrative" here. They just had to fuck with it, and they ruined everything.
It's rather ironic, Madoka's wish brought misery to Homura but happiness to everyone else. Homura's wish, which was very much to protect Madoka from the Incubators and their machinations, made everyone happy but brought herself seemingly eternal misery. All I want to do is make her happy.
>that outfit on madoka
That's cute as fuck
Rebellion so meta. Fanfic shipping with fanfic and pixiv's most popular ships for literally half of it, characters magically come back to life. How does it work? By taking the original ending and ripping it in half. Again, literally.
Homura is the audience.
I honestly didn't think about it that way but it actually fits really well. Homura becomes more and more dissatisfied with the happy stakeless dream world where everyone fights together, like the fans demanding further story. As she is about to receive a happy ending and closure presumably to the series, she gets up and rips it apart out of "love", the fans love for the series made her do it, to keep it going.
The wraith manga is an official adaptation of what happened between the last episode of the series and the beginning of Rebellion. As much as you dislike it, the facts are the facts
The ending was fine. The movie itself was fucking gorgeous and the pacing was almost as good as the show's.
