Not exactly post 250 , is it?
If you’ve seen the latest episode of Madoka Magica, you’ll come to terms with the fact that not only is Homura the most tragic heroine of the series, but also that she has been travelling endless back and forth in time in her attempts to rescue the magical girls. Now you know why she tries to stop Mami from fighting Charlotte and the girls from ever signing contracts.
But as one
blunt observant soul pointed out, with every repetition she goes through, Homerun seems to not only not solve the problem, but in fact , find that each repetition she goes through only reveals a even darker world : with repetitions that involve Mami going insane and Madoka turning into a witch, it would seem that Homura’s attempt to alter their fates and destinies seem to be failing. That said, what does this show about fate and destiny in PMMM?
I expect those people who watch Madoka Magica and follow anime blogs to have one bizarre feeling from watching the latest episode of MSMM. On one hand, the episode, with all its plot ‘twists’, would simply blow them away. On the other hand, the show suddenly seems much less intriguing than before. Why? We’re all too over-speculative over this show.
Since an essential and crucial part of being a blogger is the ability to over-speculate, here’s my thoughts on Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica episode 7.

Recently the aniblogosphere’s been going gaga over SHAFT’s latest offering, the dubious Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, thought by some bloggers to be more deep than it looks, with references to Faustian motifs and various other pieces of literature hidden amongst its scenes. And of course, with any show with unseen mysteries that compel the audience, theories start spreading like wildfire. Here’s some of my own.
