Gen Urobuchi, French Interview

>Do you have something to say to the french fans who are impatiently waiting for the third movie?

>I think the third movie is going to divide the people, but I'm ready to face the consequences

New Trailer

Translation what Homura saying: "No one understands this sadness I feel."

A solitary girl has arrived. A lonely girl has arrived after a struggle.

A beacon of light towards hope

The new "rules"

They will overturn everything

The shape of love

Who are you?"

I want to meet you just one more time.

So it's NEW world after all.

it came from the internets. --Mutopis 05:26, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

  • of course, it would help if someone could confirm it. --Mutopis 05:27, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes, the new one created at the end of the anime. --Universalperson 11:29, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
  • If you cant view the new trailer, here is a link--Mutopis 05:39, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Nico video Link.
    • QB's shape has been modified a little. There is a scene (flashback?) shows all 5 magical girls in their back.
      • In that picture, Homura is in her previous hairstyle with 2 pigtails. And Kyoko is in school uniform. But it might also be possible that the girl is not Kyoko.
    • It might imply that magical girls in the new world is still in sadness and sorrow.
    • Homura's shield is back. But it may also be possible that she is in previous world then.

Translation Request

So the website's updated. Can anyone translate this page?--Universalperson 14:52, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

  • The first paragraph says the exact same thing as the trailer from the end of The Eternal Story. The second paragraph talks about the staff and how it is a new work. So basically nothing about the plot. KurouKuriko 15:03, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I thought it's something like that, but thanks! --Universalperson 15:29, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

魔法少女まどか☆マギカ 叛逆の物語 新


Homura (narration): "There are those who wish for hope, take on a curse, and continue fighting." [The Magical Girls'…]

Homura (narration): "They are Magical Girls." […cruel fates…]

Homura (narration): "We will continue the fight." […do not end]

[A newly completed production]

Mami: "Do you think you can beat someone on the same level as me?"

Homura: "If this is all you've got, then I won't lose!"

Sayaka: "Do you intend to escape into your time [stop] again?"

Kyouko: "Is this some kind of illusion or something?"*

[In a world without Madoka, did something happen to the girls?]

Homura: "Using such a roundabout way out… What in the world is your intention?"

Homura: "Why… tell me… do I…"

Kyouko: "You… no way…!"**

Sayaka: "All of us who are reaching our limits… Even I want to sympathize."

Mami: "Someday, the 'law of cycles' that leads us will…"***

Homura: "I was supposed to be the only one who remembers…"****

[Dreams, reality, past, future, hope, despair]

Kyuubey: "Even though you don't want to know the truth, you can't help but chase after it. This thing called "human curiosity" is quite irrational, isn't it."

Madoka: "You mustn't [let yourself] be left alone, Homura-chan." [The story heads toward a new conclusion]

Translation notes and speculation, based on wording:

[*] "koitsu" is referring to either a thing or a person/monster/something living"—I'm going to guess it's a Nightmare/Witch, as that's when the most bizarre, reality-shifting stuff happens in the series/movie, to my knowledge.

[**] The line could be translated as "You couldn't have…!" or "You couldn't be…!," but it's vague enough that we can't exactly figure out if she's surprised about the other person/thing's identity or something they did/will do.

[***] The "law of cycles" is what Mami called the new laws of the universe that dictate that Magical Girls disappear when they use up all their magic at the end of the TV show. There's no indication in this wording that she knows of Madoka's existence yet.

[****] "I was supposed to be…" ← interesting wording, if you ask me. She's very obviously hinting that she is no longer the only one who remembers, so either the other girls are starting to remember or a new character appeared who remembered, or something of the sort.

How to categorize the manga?

Since the manga adaption of the movie is due for a first volume release this month, and a preview of it is out, I was wondering if we have a page for this yet. If not, should we create one along the lines of the tv series' manga adaptation, combine it with that page, or add it to the movie's official page? --CrownClown 02:55, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Aniplex USA

Aniplex USA is selling all the Japanese Rebellion merch for $200 (or just the guide for $12) It's US and Canada only though.



Canadian tickets are $12 CAD, so the that's about $100k CAD raked in for Rebellion's second showing in Canada.

Overall, The Rebellion Story should gross around $500k USD or more in NA. A pretty healthy bump compare to the $180k earned by The Beginning/Eternal Story double feature last year.

Urobuchi Interview with Koike Kazuo -- I see you, Reclaimer 20:12, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

  • For his scenario, Urobuchi got help from Kyubey to let Madoka forget her identity in Homulilly's barrier.
  • He formed everyone's characteristic except Homura when watching Hidamari Sketch.
  • He thinks Homura have throw her confusion away in the movie. By doing this, she grows up like a heroine.
  • He also has stronger impression on Homura in the movie than what he imagined earier. Although Homura calls herself a demon, she has conflict.
  • He also says it bad to teach children there's no darkness.
  • In a letter, the writer asks if Sayaka might be the protagonist. Urobuchi answers that since Sayaka got a special position in the movie, it is possible for her being a solitary heroine in the future. She might be the only one who can match Homura.

from 4chan, not really related to the movies, unless you are into economics:

The basic premise is that the author recently read a book about Japan sub-consciously never being able to accept defeat after the war. That they latched onto economic growth instead, however this has put them in a cyclic state of rapid growth and collapse.

The likenesses with Madoka (he watched the first 2 movies, not Rebellion) are then:

- Magical girls/The people realize the system is rotten, but not really why. Yet they must continue to fight/work to protect those dear to them/their livelihood.

- Meanwhile someone from the outside (Kyuubey/foreign countries) profits from all this.

- Homura's timeloops are compared to the boom-bust cycle of economics, this leads to Homura finding about exactly what's wrong with the system.

- Like the gathered karma from the loops, this knowledge is then the catalyst for something happening that can break this loop and greatly improve the world for magical girls/the people.

He states that the book I mentioned earlier as the likely catalyst that will let the Japanese break away from this cycle, but that it will also likely take some time for their Madoka to appear. --Mutopis 03:18, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Trailer Download Error

There seems to be a download error with the 2nd TV exclusive. The video is almost 12 minutes long. When I download it, all 12 minutes are downloaded, but only the first few minutes can actually play. Has anybody else experienced this problem? The MediaFire link is Is there anybody who can fix this problem? --Starkiller 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't work for me past 3:40 mark either. - Prima 22:01, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Any name for the song used towards the beginning?

Trying to find the song used in the battle against the first Nightmare, when it is eating. The song is used again throughout the movie as BGM, more prominently during the battle against Homulilly. Can't seem to find it anywhere though. Anybody know where I could find it, or even what the name is? 08:13, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Edit: Rewatching, it's not during the battle, it's just before. When she's using her sash(?) to claw the ground. Still used during the first Nightmare battle though. 08:21, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Aniplex+ bonus

Looks like Aniplex+ bonus this time around is a box to put both movie sets in and a clear file.

It's mostly clear files, posters, and tapestry. Though tapestry featuring Godoka and Homucifer is a bit tempting.

TBS is offering pocket watch like last time. Joshin is offering hand towel, Animega and co. offering badge set.

Amiami offering crystal paperweight featuring Madoka.

IC card case and book card are offered as well, but they're kind of pointless outside of Japan.

Animate is offering the tapestry mentioned above. They may have more things as a separate bundle on their website like the first two movie set.

Preordering on Aniplex+ is now available. Their clear file has original art by Inu Curry.

There are four new trailers on the trailer page. One is 15 seconds, one is 30 seconds, one is a PV and the last is the DVD\Blu-ray launch commercial PV. I can't watch them because it says that the video is not available in the USA. Can anybody extract the video and put it th MediaFire, as well as the "coming soon" Blu-ray DVD Trailer?
