Newtype 12.2011 06.JPG

Hideaki Anno (of Evangelion fame):

This is really good, Kyubey. Be it getting rid of lip-synching, or working it as a character, doing it so thoroughly makes me feel great. And the symbolization of the witches is also skillfully done. The music is also good. My urge is to own the three BGM tracks like the "salesman's theme" [editor note: refers to Kyubey's song "Sis Puella Magica"] which I love, got me to buy Vol. 2 of the Blu-Ray. Ep. 10 was good too. The way HomuHomu was depicted was good. I think in terms of the released form of anime works, going for a movie series instead of another TV series is a good way to establish it even further. I have high expectations of it.


Message from Ume Aoki, if NewType is purchased from Animate in Japan.

To everyone who bought this from Animate:
I am honored to draw the cover illustration of this issue for NewType!!

When the magazine logo goes in and then the text goes in,
What will it look like? It is so much joy to think about it <3 <3 <3
All of you must have already seen it, I guess...
How...how..how...how...how is it!?
Inside the magazine, as I think there is

新・放送後の反響が予想以上に大きくて嬉しかった
虚・ファン作成の3Dでキャラが踊っている作品を一緒に見た事も
新・ファンの方のパロディマンガも嬉しかった

虚・ファンの動きを見て純粋に楽しんでいた

Shinbo - I was so happy that the reactions after the broadcast was much bigger than expected.
Urobuchi - Also the time when we watched the fan-made video where the characters are in 3D dance... [symbv: I wonder if it is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX4OBVSlgvw]
Shinbo - I am also very happy with the parody manga done by fans.
Urobuchi - Watching the fan activities was pure joy.

虚・まどかの後は仕事が増えすぎてジェンガみたいになり、どこからやっていいか分からなくなってきた
 ・海外での評価も高いらしいのが嬉しい

 ・板野氏にアニメ業界に連れてきて貰って恩返しをしたいと思っていたが、日本のアニメを海外のメディアに太刀打ち出来る文化にしたいという板野氏の願いに何らかの形で応える事が出来たのかと

Urobuchi - After Madoka work has increased so much that it became like Jenga, and it got difficult to see where I should start.

  • I am happy as it seems the evaluation from overseas is also good.
  • I have been thinking of repaying Itano(Ichiro Itano, the director of Blassreiter) as he helped me to get into the anime industry. I wonder if I am able to fulfill in some way Itano's wish of getting Japanese anime to be considered worthy culture in overseas media.
蒼・少し仕事の依頼が増えたが、色々な人がまどかのキャラを描いてくれるなかで皆様の物になっているのは嬉しい Aoki - Commissioned work has increased a bit, but I am more happy with all kinds of people drawing Madoka's characters and make them everyone's own.

久保田プロデューサー・3話のしかけは制作側の意気込みも凄かった
新・3話の反響に戦々恐々だったが、大きな話題になってからは落ち着いた
久・製作現場もファンの反応見ながら作れて、現場は楽しみながら作れていたのではないか

新・スタッフが最後まで頑張ってくれたからと言うのもある
Producer Kubota - The enthusiasm of the production team was so great regarding the plot twist in ep. 3

Shinbo - I was filled with trepidation over the feedback about ep. 3, and when it became such a sensation I felt relaxed.
Kubota - At the workplace of the anime production, we got to do our work while seeing how fans reacted. Perhaps we can say that we were enjoying ourselves at the workplace so we could come up with such work.
Shinbo - Or it can be said that all the staff did their best up till the last.

岩・作品の告知と発表は3人の名前を出して短期決戦で放送に入るのが良いのではないか、と3年ぐらい前から考えていた Iwakami - Since around 3 years ago I was thinking that perhaps it is a good idea to just use the names of 3 people in the notification and announcement of a work within a short period campaign before going into broadcast.

岩・反響が放送中から大きかったので、1月頃から第2期の検討を始めていた
虚・そこで提出したプロットは放送話数1クール分に満たない分量だった

岩・TVシリーズを劇場版として見たいというスタッフの意見もあり、TVシリーズ再編集版を前後編で2本、完全新作を1本で全3本の劇場版プロジェクトを立ち上げる事にした
Iwakami - Since the feedback was really great even during broadcast, since around January we started to consider a 2nd season.
Urobuchi - But the plot that was submitted (for discussion) was not sufficient to fill up one cour...
Iwakami - And there were opinions from some staff who wanted to see the TV series in a movie format, so at the end we started the movie project in which there are altogether 3 movies - 2 movies as a two-part work of a TV series rearrangement and 1 movie that is a completely new work.

新・完全新作は長編向けの話で、TVシリーズを知っているとより面白くなる話
 ・TVシリーズの再編集版という形でその前に一度物語を振り返って欲しい

 ・映画としては2本と1本、という分け方で考えている

Shinbo - The completely new work is a story that is suitable for a feature film. It will be a story that would be even more interesting if you know the TV series.

  • Before that I want to go through the story again with the format of a rearrangement of the TV series
  • I am thinking that the movies can be divided into groups of 2 movies and 1 movie.

新・TVシリーズは毎回次の話が楽しみになるような「引き」を意識していたが、総集編ではそこが変わってくる
岩・TVシリーズは完成した作品だが、劇場で見る事で違う見方が出来ると思う。本当の意味でのジェットコースタームービーになると良い
新・劇場版の総集編という言葉には浪漫がある、ヤマト然りガンダム然り、劇場のスクリーンにかかるのは作り手としても嬉しい瞬間
蒼・劇場がイヌカレー空間になってしまうかも
虚・脚本的には尺に収める為の作業が必要だろうが、基本的にストーリーを変えるつもりはない
新・音響面は多少変わる。キャスト陣の再アフレコもしないといけないと思う

虚・再編集版は2発の打ち上げ花火で、後の完全新作に続く物だと思ってほしい
Shinbo - In the TV series we were aware of the "pulling power" that got [the watcher] to eagerly anticipate the next episode. This will change in the summary version.

Iwakami - The TV series is a work that is already complete. But I think by watching the movies one can come up with a different viewpoint. If it becomes a roller-coaster movie in a true sense it will be good.
Shinbo - There is romance in the word "summary version in movie format". Be it Yamato or Gundam, for a creator the moment when he involves with the theater screen is a most happy one.
Aoki - The theater may become a Inu-Curry space.
Urobuchi - For the screenplay, there may be a need to do some work in order to fit in the length, but basically I do not plan to change the story.
Shinbo - On the sound side there will be some changes. I also think the whole cast will have to do after-recordings again.

Urobuchi - I want people to think that the rearrangement edition as a two-shot firework, and the completely new work that comes after is its continuation.

虚・新作は、TVシリーズで完全に完結する話として描いていたので続編はどうした物かと悩んでいた

 ・いよいよ次の打ち合わせ、となっても決定的なアイデアはなく、みんなでブレストのような打ち合わせをした
Urobuchi - For the new work, since I wrote the TV series as a fully completed story, I was unsure as to what kind of story to tell for a sequel.
  • Even after one discussion session after another there was still no decisive idea. Everyone joined in the discussions in brainstorming style.

虚・この4人が中心となった打ち合わせであるアイデアが出た事で、新作が作れる手応えを感じた
 ・TVシリーズは脚本が先行していたので自分の世界観が中心だったが、新作は「Magica Quartet」の真骨頂と言える物になる
 ・明らかに虚淵玄というライターだけでは出てこないアイデアがベースになっている、「魔法少女まどか☆マギカ」だから出来た物語になっている
 ・先日新作の脚本がほぼ決定稿になった。作業は順調に進んでいる
新・サブタイトルはまだ未定
 ・本当は「インキュベーターの逆襲」というタイトルにしたかった
虚・CMはキュゥべえにお願いしては

新・キュゥべえならきっと「すぐに劇場公開するなんって言っていないだろう」と言うのでは
Urobuchi - During discussions that were centered around the 4 people here we came up with a certain idea, and I finally got the feeling that I am able to create a new work.
  • Whereas in the TV series, as the screenplay came first, my world view was at the center, in the new work it will be something that can be said to showcase the true value of the "Magica Quartet".
  • Some days ago the final draft of the screenplay for the new work was all but finished. The production work is progressing smoothly.

Shinbo - The subtitle is not decided yet.

  • I really wanted to make the title "Incubator Strikes Back".

Urobuchi - Let's ask Kyubey to do the CM...

Shinbo - I am sure Kyubey will just say "you didn't say it will be released to theaters that soon, did ya?"...

●各スタッフ見出しコメント
新・個人的には“世紀末魔法少女伝説”が見たい
蒼・「劇場版」という響きにうっとり
虚・完全に終わらせたので、続編については聞き逃していたが…

岩・劇場ならではの、降りられないジェットコースター的な楽しみを
  • Headline comments from various staff

Shinbo - Personally I want to see "Fin-de-siecle Mahou Shoujo Legend"
Aoki - I am ecstatic towards the sound of the word "movie edition"
Urobuchi - Since it was brought to a full end, I missed hearing about the sequel...

Iwakami - [Expect] the fun like in a roller-coaster which you cannot get off, that you can only get in theaters
●スペシャルコメント 簡単に。
  • Special Comments (roughly)

・庵野秀明氏:キュゥべえは記号としてのキャラとして徹底されていて気持ちいい。魔女の記号化とかも巧い、あと音楽が良い。あと10話のほむほむの描き方がよかった。劇場版も期待しています
・佐考仁司氏:まどかとほむらのコンビはもう最高

・松井玲奈氏:10話のEDやキュゥべえが語りかけるシーンなど、心の底から楽しんだ
  • Hideaki Anno: It feels good to see Kyubey to be so thoroughly worked as a symbol as well as a character. The symbolization of the witches is also skillfully done. And then the music is good. The way HomuHomu was depicted in Ep. 10 was also good. I have good expectations of the movie edition.
    [Editor's note: Complete and accurate translation is among the translated scans]
  • Hitoshi Sakoh (the bassist of Japanese rock band Galileo Galilei): The pairing of Madoka and Homura is just the best!
  • Rena Matsui (the most popular member of SKE48, sister unit of AKB48): It was a most heartfelt joy to watch scenes like the ED of ep. 10 or when Kyubey gave a speech.
