<div>One positive consequence of Madoka's extensive merchandising empire is the wealth of behind-the-scene information it made readily available to the public. We fans have available to us, often in translated forms, documentation of every facade and minute details of the creative odyssey that becomes the Madoka franchise. For those of us who chose to sift through it, there exists an unparalleled opportunity to grasp exactly how this modern classic sprung forth from the minds of the Magica Quartet.<br />
<br />
[[Kaname Madoka]]'s birthday was set for October 3rd, in honor of the initial meeting on October 3, 2008 between what becomes the [[Magica Quartet]].<br />

<div><blockquote>''"Ever hear of something called the food chain? Didn’t they teach you it in school? The witches go and eat weak humans. And then we hunt them down and eat the witches. It’s the natural way of things. The weak have to give up to the strong."'' <br />-'''[[Kyoko]]''' in [[Episode 5]]</blockquote><br />
<br />
[[File:Food chain.jpg|thumb|300px|Kyoko's food chain.]]<br />
As Kyouko alluded, the [[Magic#Magical_creatures|relationship]] between [[magical girl]]s, [[witch]]es, and the general population resembles a food chain in nature. However, magical girls and witches shares a unique relationship not typically represented in predator-prey equations: when a magical girl's [[soul gem]] darkens completely, she is reborn as a witch (as revealed in [[Episode 8]]). This relationship leads to a more complicated interdependence between the two populations, one unaccounted for in standard [[wikipedia:population modeling|population modeling]]. Due to this, a new population model needs to be developed specifically for these [[Magic#magical_creatures|magical creatures]] to properly analyze their [[wikipedia:population dynamics|population dynamics]].<br />
<br />
=Model assumptions=<br />
[[file:Population model.png|300px|thumb|Graphical representation of population model used.]]<br />
Both the [[magical girl]] and [[witch]] populations draw their numbers from the general human population. To simplify calculations, we assume that both populations are many magnitudes smaller in comparison to the overall human population, and human losses that result from magical activities contribute insignificant changes to it.<br />
<br />
The magical girl population increases by the number of new girls [[Kyubey]] contracted and decreases by the rate of them dying or becoming witches. The Witch population increase by the number of matured [[familiar|familiars]] per witch as well as the rate of magical girls that became witches, but decreases by the rate magical girls hunt and kill them. We can summarize these premises as the following variables:<br />
<br />
*'''M(t)''': the number of magical girls at the time ''t'' (a natural number)<br />
*'''W(t)''': the number of witches at the time ''t'' (a natural number)<br />
*'''C''': the number of girls Kyubey contracts at each iteration (a natural number)<br />
*'''D''': the proportion of magical girls dying at each iteration (a percentage)<br />
*'''B''': the proportion of magical girls becoming witches (a percentage)<br />
*'''K''': the proportion of witches killed at each iteration (a percentage)<br />
*'''F''': the number of [[familiar]]s per witch that mature into witches (a positive rational number)<br />
<br />
=Simple model=<br />
A simple mathematical model was initially proposed (various refinements are defined below). In the simple model, the rate of magical girls dying, becoming witches, and killing witches is assumed to be independent of the witch population. This have an effect of simplifying calculations and provides for a closed-form solution to the differential equations. Under this assumption, the populations can be defined as following:<br />
<br />
;[[File:Formula for Basic Population, M part.png|Formula for Basic Population, M part]]<br />
<br />
;[[File:Formula for Basic Population, W part.png|Formula for Basic Population, W part]]<br />
<br />
==Simulation==<br />
One 100-iterations execution of the simple model with Matlab, using a set of reasonable values for the variables:<br />
<br />
{|class="wikitable" style="line-height: 1.6em; width: 100%;"<br />
! style="text-align: center; background: #ffffff; width: 70%;"|Matlab simulation<br />

;D = 0.25<br />
;B = 0.125<br />
;K = 0.12<br />
;F = 0.015<br />
;M(1) = 0<br />
;W(1) = 0<br />
<br />

;<math>\textstyle{ C \left ( {B-K \over B+D} \right ) = 1}</math><br />
|}<br />
<br />
The values used are arbitrary but reasonably selected. Subsequent simulations show that adjustments to the variable values affect curvature but does not affect the general behavior of the populations.<br />
<br />
==Population at Equilibrium==<br />
If both populations are in equilibrium, then there are no changes to either the witch and magical girl population ['''ΔM(t)''' = 0 & '''ΔW(t)''' = 0]. It follows that the number of magical girls contracted will balance out those that died or become witch in the same period ['''C = (D + B) M(t)''']; and the number of witches matured from minions balances out numbers contributed by magical girls ['''F * W(t) = (K - B) M(t)''']. <br />
*At equilibrium, the magical girl population is equal to <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math> .<br />
*At equilibrium, the witch population is '''(B - K) M(t)'''. If '''M(t)''' is also in equilibrium, then the witch population is <math>\textstyle{ C \left ( {B-K \over B+D} \right ) }</math>.<br />
<br />
==General Solution==<br />
The general solution for the witch and magical girl populations in this model are:<br />
;[[File:Closed form for M(t).png]]<br />
;[[File:Closed form for W(t).png]]<br />
for some constant α and β. If we assume witches and magical girls are introduced by QB's civilization, thus initial population of both at the system's introduction were zero ['''M(0)=0 W(0)=0''']. W(t) and M(t) becomes:<br />
;[[File:Closed form of M(t) at M(0)=0.png]]<br />
;[[File:Closed form of W(t) at W(0)=0.png]]<br />
<br />
==Conclusions and observations==<br />
[[File:Kyubey's backup supply of despair.jpg|right|300px]]<br />
*Every dead magical girl is one that did not become a witch. For [[Kyubey]], whose goal is to harvest energy from the magical girl-to-witch transformation, every death meant wasted time contracting the girl. It makes sense for him to design a system where most Witches are weaker than Magical Girls in order to reduce the magical girl casualty rate ['''K > B'''].<br />
*If magic girls are stronger than witches, it follows that the typical Magic Girl will kill multiple Witches before becoming one ['''K - B''' > 0]. Because of this, there's a need for an alternative source for creating witches. This explains why that despite Kyubey cares only of the energy from Magic Girl-Witches transformation, the supplementary system of witch growth from familiars exist.<br />
*The magical girl population will always reach equilibrium at <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math>, regardless of initial number of magical girls or actual values of '''C, D, or B'''. The population is limited by Kyubey's ability to contract new girls, and may explain why there seems to be so few magical girls around.<br />
*Even when a significant number of magical girl is introduced initially, their numbers will eventually whithered down to sustainable population level of <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math>. This is a natural consequence of limited by the linear growth rate, independent of any environmental or crowding stresses.<br />
*In contrast, the witch population will never reach equilibrium. The number of witches will fluctuate minutely at the initial period, but inevitably familiar growth will outpace all other factors, and the population will eventually explode into exponential growth. Realistically, the growth may ultimately be capped by human depopulation from witch activities, but at this point the initial premises of the model breaks down.<br />
*Due to the above, any planet with this magical girl and witch system in place is inevitably doomed to extinction. It is not possible to save the human population, with exception of forced extermination of all witches and magical girls. This may explain why in the [[Episode_10#Timeline_4|fourth timeline]] Kyubey simply chose to abandon Earth rather than attempting sustainable farming of the planet.<br />

<br />
==Refinements==<br />
[[File:Colonel aki - food for thought.jpg|right|115px]]<br />
The simple model provides a mathematical basis for explaining certain idiosyncrasies of the Magica universe, but suffers from overly generalized assumptions that breaks down in some situations. Several refinements were attempted on the simple model to account for these problems. Unfortunately, these refinements need more complex sets of differential equations to properly describe the model, which do not have general solutions and can only be interpreted through simulations.<br />
<br />
=Witch population dependence=<br />
Consider the situation when the magical girls population is substantially bigger than the witch population ['''M(t) > W(t)''']. If there's not many witches around, how do the magical girls find as much opportunity to hunt witches and use magic? Obviously less magic girls will die or become witches, compared to if witches are more abundant. In these situations, the variables ['''B, K, D'''] depends not on the current number of magic girls, but on the current number of witches. Based on these premises, '''ΔM(t)''' and '''ΔW(t)''' may be redefined as:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta M(t) = C - (D + B) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t))<br />
</math><br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta W(t) = F \times W(t) + (B - K) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t))<br />
</math><br />
<br />
where min() chooses the lesser of the two populations.<br />
<br />

|}<br />
<br />
[[File:Modified population model.png|thumb|300px|The refined model, in terms of cute girls doing cute things]]<br />
<br />
==Observations==<br />
*This model allows for cases where ΔW(t) depends solely on W(t) in low witch population situations, therefore, the initial number of witches must be nonzero. If not, no magical girl would turn into a witch and the witch population is always static at zero. Kyubey may have named this initial witch [[Speculah:Walpurgis Night|Walpurgisnaught]].<br />
* If '''F+B-K''' is less than zero, the number of witches created (be it by magical girls mutation or familiars maturation) is less than the number of witches killed by magical girls. In that scenario, the population of witches [ '''W(t)''' ] always extincts rapidly, while magical girls would grow linearly. Additionally, because we previously concluded (from the simple model) that '''K - B > 0''', then '''F > K - B''', implying that more familiars need to mature in each time period than witches killed. To combat this possibility of rapid extinction, witches need to adopt an evolutionary strategy similar to the [[wikipedia:mass spawning|mass spawning]] used by most fish and insect species. If sufficient number of familiars bud from each witch, probability of more familiars will mature will increase. This may explain why there are so many familiars in each witch's lair.<br />
* The populations undergo two distinct period of development:<br />
# Initially, the number of magical girls grows in a quasi-linear trend. There are almost no witches, so there are few magical girl casualties. Kyubey still contracts them on a regular basis, so naturally the number grows at a near constant rate. Since less battling occurs, soul gems darken slowly, and the number of magical girls that become witches is comparably smaller. It can be showed that the magical girl population peaks at <math>\textstyle{t= { { \ln C - \ln (D+B) } \over {F+B-K} }}</math> with maximum population at approximately <math>\textstyle{ tC - {C \over {F+B-K} } }</math>. <br />
# At a critical point where the witch population begin exceeding the magical girl population (around ''t=300'' in this simulation). Increased opportunity of witch hunt starts having an effect on magical girls: magical girl population growth slows then begins to fall, while the witch population increases at an accelerated rate. Eventually the number of magical girls reach equilibrium at <math>\textstyle { C \over D+B }</math>, from this point on the witch population achieves exponential growth.<br />
<br />
==Comparison with the simple model==<br />
The simple model fails to account for this initial period of population development and reach equilibrium at a much faster time. However, the secondary period are comparable to a time-delayed version of the simple model's general solution. Therefore, conclusions reached by the simple model remain valid, although at a later time period than expected by the simple model.<br />
<br />
=Gradual dimming=<br />
While it is not explicitly stated in the show that a [[Soul Gem]] gradually dims over time, there are implications for it to be the case. In episode six, we see proof of a constantly active link, of limited range, between a Soul Gem and the body it is linked to. It is reasonable to accept that this link would be magical in nature, and therefore provide a slight but constant drain of the Soul Gem's power. This would allow for Kyubey to start the cycle without an initial number of witches or the possession of a non-canonical ability to directly create a Witch. Let's define a new variable, '''T''', to represent the proportions of magical girls that naturally become witch over time. This changes the model to:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta M(t) = C - (D + B) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t)) - T \times M(t)<br />
</math><br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta W(t) = F \times W(t) + (B - K) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t)) + T \times M(t)<br />
</math><br />
<br />
==Simulation==<br />
In the case ''K < B + F'', this model's results are similar to the second model. In case ''K > B + F'', the following behaviors can be witnessed:<br />

The dynamics of this model depends highly on the variable values and the initial populations used in each simulation:<br />
* In the special case when the witch population never significantly exceed the magical girl population, W(t) and M(t) eventually reach equilibrium when <math> \textstyle {W(t)={C \over D+K-F}}</math> and <math> \textstyle {M(t) = {C \over T} \times {K-F-B \over D+K-F}}</math>.<br />
* Otherwise the population dynamics will eventually stabilize with M(t) reach equilibrium at <math> \textstyle { {C \over D+B+T}}</math> and W grows exponentially. This equilibrium is analogous to the general solution of the simple model.<br />
<br />
The special case scenario provides a possibility for Kyubey to achieve sustainable farming without destroying the planet, but such a system is incredibly fragile and volatile.<br />

==Summary==<br />
A Magical Girl who is into the latest fashion and make-up. Rika appears to be a typical girly girl, but she is actually very seriously in love. She has been secretly admiring the same person for years. A genuine person, she gets along with everyone.<br />
<br />
===Side Story===<br />
Rika is invited to a blind date by [[Emiri Kisaki]]. Emiri brings along [[Hinano Miyako]], who just had her heart broken. During the blind date, the boys makes fun of Hinano's youthful appearance and odd speech patterns. Rika sticks up for Hinano, much to the latter's surprise. (It's also revealed Hinano is actually a third year high school student). After the blind date Rika leaves with Emiri and Hinano. Rika admits that like Hinano she also has a broken heart. Hinano realizes she didn't say anything about that and that Emiri told Rika. Hinano then yells at Emiri for telling people embarrassing things about herself. Emiri and Rika reassure Hinano, and Rika adds that Hinano is cool for being able to confess to her crush. In Rika's case, she never confessed and her crush already has someone. <br />
<br />
Emiri then suggests that Rika should make a wish. Emiri reveals that herself and Hinano are magical girls, and that they get one wish. She also tells Rika that magical girls have to fight monsters, but brushes it off as a walk in a park. Rika wonders if this is some sort of game, while Hinano chastises Emiri for speaking about magical girls. Rika wonders if she could wish to change a person's feelings, to which Emiri agrees. Hinano warns Rika against becoming a magical girl, but after some prompting from Emiri, suggests that Rika should wish for something that seems impossible and also to think about the price. After Rika leaves Emiri and Hinano, [[Kyubey]] appears before her and offers her a contract. Rika thinks about what Hinano and Emiri said to her. She then flashes back to how her crush is dating someone. She elects to become a magical girl, mentally apologizing to Hinano.<br />
<br />
Rika muses that her wish was granted and is going out with her crush. Yet she still feels unhappy. Kyubey appears and asks Rika if she can explain what's wrong. Rika admits that even though she's happy, every time the person she loves smiles at her, her chest tightens. Later, Rika fights a witch and meets two other magical girls [[Ria Ami]] and [[Manaka Kurumi]]. Ria initially thinks Rika has gone berserk, and tells Rika that her fighting style is both dangerous and inelegant. Manaka then points out that Ria didn't have an elegant fighting style either, to Ria's protests. Rika then compares them to a comedy duo and explains she fights witches as a form of stress relief.<br />
<br />
Later, Kyubey contacts Rika as she fights another witch and tells her that she's fighting dangerously. Rika is annoyed by this, but then sees Hinano is in the barrier. After the battle Rika praises Hinano, who is shocked to find Rika is a magical girl. Hinano also tells Rika her fighting style is too dangerous, and Rika explains again that it's stress relief. Hinano tells Rika to try something else, but Rika says she can't. Hinano then asks Rika why she's unhappy. Rika explains that while she wished for her love to be fulfilled, she thinks it's all fake. She says that if her crush only likes her because of a magical compulsion, then it might as well be a lie. Hinano then asks why Rika became a magical girl in the first place. Rika explains that if she didn't make a wish she would never have a chance in the first place. When Hinano asks for an explanation, Rika reveals that the person she likes is ''a girl''. Rika asks Hinano if what she said is gross and weird, but Hinano says it's not. Rika wonders how it was so easy to reveal this truth to Hinano.<br />
<br />
Rika and Hinano fight together against a witch. Hinano says that Rika is still fighting dangerously, but Rika says she's planning to stop after this. Rika then explains she broke up with her crush. Hinano asks if it was because it was fake love. Rika says that was part of it. She said that for four years she loved her childhood friend, but she remained friends with her. When Kyubey came, Rika admits she should have rejected his contract. She explains that she accepted the contract because when she saw her childhood friend with her new boyfriend, Rika realized that she could never give her friend that same feelings that her boyfriend did. Rika then says that if she breaks up with her friend, then the boyfriend would have a chance.<br />
<br />
Rika tells Hinano that her wish caused the girl she liked and her boyfriend to completely forget about each other, as if they never met in the first place. Rika then explains how the boyfriend helped find Rika's lost ticket at a train station. When this happened, Rika realized the girl she likes and her boyfriend were perfect for each other. Rika explains that she's the one who broke them up, so breaking up with her girlfriend is a way of setting things right. Hinano is impressed that Rika had enough willpower to make that decision. Rika says there's one more thing she needs to do. She brings Hinano to her school, and together plants the notebook of Rika's ex-girlfriend in the bag of her ex-boyfriend. They do the same with the boy's notebook and the girl's bag. Seeing the boy and girl meet each other again, Rika says everything is great.<br />
<br />
Afterward, Rika tells Hinano that the girl and the boy were like the prince and princess of fairy tale, and therefore destined to be together. Rika isn't sure what that makes her, but then decides she's like her friend's love Cupid. Rika is surprised to see that Hinano is crying - unaware she's crying herself. Rika asks Hinano to laugh again, but Hinano says that no-one could laugh at what happened. Finally, Rika tells Hinano she loves her....but then says it's not that way, as Hinano isn't really her type. Rika then starts laughing, Hinano stops crying, and the two affirm their friendship.<br />

Rika and Hinano fight together against a witch. Hinano says that Rika is still fighting dangerously, but Rika says she's planning to stop after this. Rika then explains she broke up with her crush. Hinano asks if it was because it was fake love. Rika says that was part of it. She said that for four years she loved her childhood friend, but she remained friends with her. When Kyubey came, Rika admits she should have rejected his contract. She explains that she accepted the contract because when she saw her childhood friend with her new boyfriend, Rika realized that she could never give her friend that same feelings that her boyfriend did. Rika then says that if she breaks up with her friend, then the boyfriend would have a chance.<br />
<br />
Rika tells Hinano that her wish caused the girl she liked and her boyfriend to completely forget about each other, as if they never met in the first place. Rika then explains how the boyfriend helped find Rika's lost ticket at a train station. When this happened, Rika realized the girl she likes and her boyfriend were perfect for each other. Rika explains that she's the one who broke them up, so breaking up with her girlfriend is a way of setting things right. Hinano is impressed that Rika had enough willpower to make that decision. Rika says there's one more thing she needs to do. She brings Hinano to her school, and together plants the notebook of Rika's ex-girlfriend in the bag of her ex-boyfriend. They do the same with the boy's notebook and the girl's bag. Seeing the boy and girl meet each other again, Rika says everything is great.<br />
<br />
Afterward, Rika tells Hinano that the girl and the boy were like the prince and princess of fairy tale, and therefore destined to be together. Rika isn't sure what that makes her, but then decides she's like her friend's love Cupid. Rika is surprised to see that Hinano is crying - unaware she's crying herself. Rika asks Hinano to laugh again, but Hinano says that no-one could laugh at what happened. Finally, Rika tells Hinano she loves her....but then says it's not that way, as Hinano isn't really her type. Rika then starts laughing, Hinano stops crying, and the two affirm their friendship.<br />

==Summary==<br />
A Magical Girl who is into the latest fashion and make-up. Rika appears to be a typical girly girl, but she is actually very seriously in love. She has been secretly admiring the same person for years. A genuine person, she gets along with everyone.<br />
<br />
===Side Story===<br />
Rika is invited to a blind date by [[Emiri Kisaki]]. Emiri brings along [[Hinano Miyako]], who just had her heart broken. During the blind date, the boys makes fun of Hinano's youthful appearance and odd speech patterns. Rika sticks up for Hinano, much to the latter's surprise. (It's also revealed Hinano is actually a third year high school student). After the blind date Rika leaves with Emiri and Hinano. Rika admits that like Hinano she also has a broken heart. Hinano realizes she didn't say anything about that and that Emiri told Rika. Hinano then yells at Emiri for telling people embarrassing things about herself. Emiri and Rika reassure Hinano, and Rika adds that Hinano is cool for being able to confess to her crush. In Rika's case, she never confessed and her crush already has someone. <br />
<br />
Emiri then suggests that Rika should make a wish. Emiri reveals that herself and Hinano are magical girls, and that they get one wish. She also tells Rika that magical girls have to fight monsters, but brushes it off as a walk in a park. Rika wonders if this is some sort of game, while Hinano chastises Emiri for speaking about magical girls. Rika wonders if she could wish to change a person's feelings, to which Emiri agrees. Hinano warns Rika against becoming a magical girl, but after some prompting from Emiri, suggests that Rika should wish for something that seems impossible and also to think about the price. After Rika leaves Emiri and Hinano, [[Kyubey]] appears before her and offers her a contract. Rika thinks about what Hinano and Emiri said to her. She then flashes back to how her crush is dating someone. She elects to become a magical girl, mentally apologizing to Hinano.<br />
<br />
Rika muses that her wish was granted and is going out with her crush. Yet she still feels unhappy. Kyubey appears and asks Rika if she can explain what's wrong. Rika admits that even though she's happy, every time the person she loves smiles at her, her chest tightens. Later, Rika fights a witch and meets two other magical girls [[Ria Ami]] and [[Manaka Kurumi]]. Ria initially thinks Rika has gone berserk, and tells Rika that her fighting style is both dangerous and inelegant. Manaka then points out that Ria didn't have an elegant fighting style either, to Ria's protests. Rika then compares them to a comedy duo and explains she fights witches as a form of stress relief.<br />
<br />
Later, Kyubey contacts Rika as she fights another witch and tells her that she's fighting dangerously. Rika is annoyed by this, but then sees Hinano is in the barrier. After the battle Rika praises Hinano, who is shocked to find Rika is a magical girl. Hinano also tells Rika her fighting style is too dangerous, and Rika explains again that it's stress relief. Hinano tells Rika to try something else, but Rika says she can't. Hinano then asks Rika why she's unhappy. Rika explains that while she wished for her love to be fulfilled, she thinks it's all fake. She says that if her crush only likes her because of a magical compulsion, then it might as well be a lie. Hinano then asks why Rika became a magical girl in the first place. Rika explains that if she didn't make a wish she would never have a chance in the first place. When Hinano asks for an explanation, Rika reveals that the person she likes is ''a girl''. Rika asks Hinano if what she said is gross and weird, but Hinano says it's not. Rika wonders how it was so easy to reveal this truth to Hinano.<br />
<br />
Rika and Hinano fight together against a witch. Hinano says that Rika is still fighting dangerously, but Rika says she's planning to stop after this. Rika then explains she broke up with her crush. Hinano asks if it was because it was fake love. Rika says that was part of it. She said that for four years she loved her childhood friend, but she remained friends with her. When Kyubey came, Rika admits she should have rejected his contract. She explains that she accepted the contract because when she saw her childhood friend with her new boyfriend, Rika realized that she could never give her friend that same feelings that her boyfriend did. Rika then says that if she breaks up with her friend, then the boyfriend would have a chance.<br />
<br />
Rika tells Hinano that her wish caused the girl she liked and her boyfriend to completely forget about each other, as if they never met in the first place. Rika then explains how the boyfriend helped find Rika's lost ticket at a train station. When this happened, Rika realized the girl she likes and her boyfriend were perfect for each other. Rika explains that she's the one who broke them up, so breaking up with her girlfriend is a way of setting things right. Hinano is impressed that Rika had enough willpower to make that decision.

Finally, Rika tells Hinano she loves her....but then says it's not that way, as Hinano isn't really her type.

<div>Hi! Thank you for your contribution. But may I ask why did you decided to blank Speculah pages? Thanks. -- [[User:0x99|0x99]] 14:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Couple of people have been discussing this on [http://walpurgischan.net/meduka/res/12934.html /meduka/] (this thread) that the wiki needs a clean up to look like a proper wiki, and speculah isn't exactly part of what's canon, but speculation that doesn't really fit considering all we know now and that it adds nothing but fanon. --[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] 20:17, 25 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:OK, got it. I think the best way if we want to cleanup the Wiki is probably to archive the whole Wiki as read only (e.g. as old.puella-magi.net or something) and start clean, probably importing stuff from the old wiki. What do you think in that case? (I think this discussion better be moved to Main Page?) - [[User:0x99|0x99]] 16:26, 26 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
::I'm not too familiar with this process, are we gonna restart the wiki from scratch this way? [[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] 03:21, 27 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:::Yes, I think that would be the best way. Old wiki would still be accessible in its current form (although read-only). Restructuring pages would be a lot easier that way, as current wiki is a mix of facts and speculation etc. Cost wise probably better as well as images belongs to old wiki can be dumped into bulk hosting. -- [[User:0x99|0x99]] 06:13, 27 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:::Agreed. I had at first tried to clean up the wiki so it was more standardized and streamlined across the board but page after page of speculah makes the wiki a proverbial rabbit's warren of pages and it's difficult to clean and keep what's relevant. If we archive this wiki and import/duplicate the main core of the pages to a new wiki that's been made from scratch it would definitely be easier to organize it from the beginning. Also, apologies if I went overboard on the cleanup. --[[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] 06:08, 28 April 2017 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:::: Oh no, don't apologize. Your efforts are much appreciated! You're doing the [[Goddess]]'s work! - [[User:Prima|Prima]] 06:22, 28 April 2017 (UTC)<br />

== Unique memorias ==<br />

== Deletion of Puella Magi Kazumi Magica Special Edition Rosetta Meteora File ==<br />
Is there a reason why you deleted that file Sondenise? Last I recall, I had it waiting in the Translation Request category. It's not a fan thing, it's an actual mini story from a store bonus poster. - [[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 06:27, 18 August 2018 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:The file is still there, just listed under the Kazumi Magica page. [[Puella_Magi_Kazumi_Magica#Store_Bonuses]]. I realize it wasn't a fan created object, I just didn't feel it warranted its own page entirely. But if you'd like you're more than welcome to restore the page.<br />
<br />
== Invite to Write for GamePress MagiReco ==<br />
<br />
Hey Sondenise,<br />
<br />
We been working together on the puella wiki for many years now, and I felt you're the ideal candidate to ask, so this is a personal invite to [write for the GamePress MagiReco site](https://magiarecord.gamepress.gg/) that I'm getting ready for the NA Launch.<br />
<br />
Funny enough, I been involved with the Magica fandom even longer than with GamePress. GamePress really was a side project of mine for some mobile games that kind of took off. You can imagine how happy I was about the MagiReco announcement - finally seeing both halves of my life coming together like that! <br />
<br />
Of course GamePress is going to cover MagiReco!<br />
<br />
[https://hq.gamepress.gg/game-strategy-writer-magia-record See the Job Listing more details, please consider applying for the MagiReco Content Writer position!]<br />
<br />
What I have in mind for you is to take care of the lore part of the site. You know your stuff, probably as well as anyone else in the international fandom. Who better to ask to write the lore background of every witch and magical girl, and get paid for it?<br />
<br />
So how about it? [[User:Prima|Prima]] ([[User talk:Prima|talk]]) 18:04, 4 June 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
PS: I checked in with [[User:0x99]] before posting this.<br />
<br />
:Oh wow! This is incredible! I'd be more than happy to apply as soon as I've written those critical thinking prompts. This is a pretty golden opportunity to get paid doing what I already enjoying doing. Thank you for passing this information to me. [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 06:15, 5 June 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:: You applying puts a big weight off my shoulders. Looking forward to your app! - [[User:Prima|Prima]] ([[User talk:Prima|talk]]) 15:26, 5 June 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:: PPS: the invitation extends to other puella wiki editors as well! I just really want to headhunt Sondenise for obv reasons!<br />
:::I'd apply for it too if I could, but I know very little about MagiReco and how to play it exactly other than what's been translated and posted here on the wiki; I don't even have the game myself because I couldn't get it working on my phone for some reason (that and IRL priorities affecting me.) Good luck to Sondenise and anyone else applying though! It's damn good opportunity for sure. -[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)<br />

== Nutcracker ==<br />
<br />
i wanted to add an observation about how Akuma Homura cracks her soul gem between her teeth, like a nutracker. Could I do that? [[User:Leafbladie|Leafbladie]] ([[User talk:Leafbladie|talk]]) 15:07, 27 April 2019 (UTC)leafbladie<br />
:Yeah, I think that's more than appropriate. It fits in line with her theme. [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 16:21, 27 April 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
I strongly suggest that we move all speculations from this page to a speculation page dedicated to Homura (and possibly the other four main characters). This could be a good occasion to clean up all the stuff that was proven wrong.<br />
:I concur. -[[User:Becquerel|Becquerel]] 04:16, 22 April 2011 (UTC)<br />
::I agree too, if by "clean up" you mean "tag properly", like the wishes thing. No content should be removed IMO, just for "historical accurracy" --[[User:Homerun-chan|Homerun-chan]] 07:41, 22 April 2011 (UTC)<br />
I agree with the speculation moving, but I think we should have a dedicated page for speculation on each character. I have loads of speculation talked over heaps with my brother that I really want to post here... until I saw this. I also think that the speculation pages dedicated to each character should be just for speculah that hasn't been proven right or wrong yet. Theories proved right or wrong should just be placed on the official page on the character. <span style="font-size:15px;line-height:19px;font-family:{{#switch:{{{variant}}}|musical=MadokaMusical|#default=MadokaRunes}};">FIFI</span> 00:32, 14 August 2013 (UTC)<br />
:I also agree that something should be done about the speculation. Moving everything unconfirmed doesn't sound like a bad idea (and quite easy to do for this page), but there's also pages like [[Kyoko#Speculations & Observations|Kyoko's]] where everything is even more disorganized. For now, I'd direct you to the [[Theories]] page. Feel free to make a new page there if you have a lot of connected speculation. --[[User:Knon|Knon]] 10:05, 14 August 2013 (UTC)<br />

abour her strong power in the new timeline: maybe because she suffered much in all the previous timelines she got a boost-up just like madoka<br />
<br />
<br />
I removed stuff that didn't belong on this page (there was speculah about Walpurgis Night's familiars, for example, which is already present on WPN's various pages and doesn't need to be here) as well as the needless arguments on theories that have been debunked. If I knew how to make new pages -and- make said new pages look pretty and formatted, I'd move the whole speculah section to a new page, but my mad skillz at wiki pages go as far as "I can edit text".<br />
:Regarding the theories proven right/wrong, and your editing skills, I made [[Template:Theory/Header|a template]] to classify theories by status (see output [[User:Homerun-chan/Theory_tags|here]]).

:Fitting actually that you mention article. You could post your thoughts freely and put it there. Right now, it feels like you want to write about all the characters and not just Homura. It's also gone beyond the facts to the point that if it stayed on the Homura page, I'd have to say it goes under speculah. --[[User:Randomanon|randomanon]] 08:24, 28 June 2011 (UTC)<br />
::I moved the draft here. I feel like the writing is going to become larger as I feel like to understand the Homura character we have to also understand her interaction to others as perhaps her personal experience with them and a need for comparison. I wonder If this should become a separate article all together?... --[[User:Mutopis|Mutopis]] 09:02, 28 June 2011 (UTC)<br />
<br />
==Understanding Homura's Stoicism==<br />
Homura's emotionless and cold exterior has been misinterpreted and misunderstood by fans and observers alike. This has led to the interpretation that Homura is a dangerous Yandere, others believe her to be a psychopath with littler regard for human lives (with the exception of Madoka), but these interpretations are highly incorrect and inaccurate. This is caused by the misleading first impression we build from lacking a fundamental understanding of her background and personality. To understand Homura it is essential to rewatch some of her scenes and discover the subtle differences from first time viewing for comparison. Once we understand Homura's background and mission and her single obsession to save Madoka viewers would observe Homura in a new light.<br />
<br />
Beneath Homura's stoic mask one will uncover the true Homura, a trace of her true self that she tries to shield with an emotional wall to cope with the rising danger of accumulating too much despair. Homura isn't the only character to be misinterpreted and misunderstood for expressing controversial opinions and actions to reach her goal, but their comparison would help to differentiate Homura from the rest of the characters. Homura developed an early survival skill to cope with her new realty to save Madoka.<br />
<br />
<b>Homura's Past:</b> <br />
<br />
To understand the Homura character it is essential to watch [[Episode 10]] and to listen the drama CD ''[[Drama CD 1|"Memories of you"]]''. First, the Drama CD contains information regarding Homura's difficulty to adapt to a new school setting as a transfer student; no one knows her nor they try to understand her and her struggles. In her new environment Homura experiences school bullying (non-physical), demeaning rumors behind her back, and low opinion about her abilities as a person and as a student. Homura is already a fragile girl with low self-esteem caused by her weak heart and her weak physical body, with the addition of emotional stress caused by her unpopularity at school it is enough to emotionally crush her to the point of driving her to suicide and despair, or at least an enticement under a Witch's spell to end her suffering.<br />
<br />
Another source of Homura's emotional transformation are the events taking place in the different timelines in [[Episode 10]]. Homura's experience in different timelines brought her insight into how to formulate different ways to rescue Madoka and stop Walpurgis Night. When a new element of surprised was introduced in the timeline, Homura would formulate a new solution to deviate from the same outcome. The first issue was uncovering the truth about the Puella Magi system, Homura tried to convince the girls that Kyubey was deceiving them. Sayaka reacted with distrust and Mami with skepticism, Madoka as well. The reasons are understandable as Homura is a stranger and a new comer and without any evidence to back her claim they arent ready to accept the truth. However, Mami's and Sayaka's real reasons differentiate with Madoka's and it sheds a light to their character.<br />
<br />
<b>Murder:</b><br />
<br />
Mami's character is the embodiment of a humble Ojou-sama and a kind Onee-sama. While Mami exudes class, grace, and beauty, she never flaunts her privilege or status. She tries to become a mentor for Madoka and Sayaka but at the same time tries to caution them that the life of a Puella Magi is not without sacrifice and difficulties. Mami's speech in [[Episode 3]] gives us a glimpse to the kind of life Mami has led so far, a very lonely and solitary life with no one to call a friend. Mami's seriousness is betrayed by her emotional outburst of joy and monologue when Madoka pledges to become a Puella Magi and join together with Mami in her duty to hunt down Witches and protect the city. For the first time we learn that Mami is truly happy with being a Puella Magi. We must consider that while Mami took her responsibility as a Puella Magi with seriousness and professionalism, we can see through flashes that she was unhappy with that type of life. Perhaps we it can interpret her duty as a Puella Magi a form of [[wiki:Noblesse_oblige|''Noblesse Oblige'']]. <br />
<br />
If [[Episode 3]] uncovers Mami's unhappiness then [[Episode 10]] marks her despair. The nature of her despair requires a deep analysis to understand Mami's lapse of judgement and brief moment of insanity. Given the glimpse we observe regarding Mami's solitary lifestyle and her sacrifice to protect the people and the city, it is understandable as to why Mami lost her composure. One could interpret that all her work and sacrifice was for naught, that the lives she saved would be meaningless once she became a Witch, and that her personal sacrifice and unhappiness contributed to the propagation of a horrifying system. Mami's sense of despair is understandable, however, her following actions contribute to her criticism and are the source of many arguments against her character. Mami's early impression is shattered once she gives in into despair and we glimpse into her weakest moment as a human being. But on the other hand it could be interpreted as the next logical step into a world that has gone mad. Mami knows that her friends have no future, that it is only a matter of time they will become Witches, to spare them of their suffering (and her own) and halt the death of future victims at their hands as Witches she decides that death (and suicide) is the logical and noble choice. No matter the interpretation or justification to fans what Mami did is considered an unforgivable act. What Mami committed was an act of betrayal by killing her ''kouhai'', she commits murder by attempting to take their lives without their consent and consultation.<br />
<br />
Surprisingly the Anime series presents different acts that involves killing and murder under different circumstances. And each act requires to be judged on their own. If Mami's action in [[Episode 10]] can be interpreted as a betrayal (or desperation), then Madoka's action to stop Mami's murdering rampage can be interpreted as an act of self-defense and justifiable homicide, acting in defense of others (or in this case an attempt to save Homura). Many fans have criticized Madoka as a helpless crybaby, but this (horrifying) single act of bravery demonstrates Madoka's measure as a Puella Magi and as a person. Not only is she willing to take personal risks to save others, but she is also willing to make the tough choices when the situation calls for it, even if it means killing a friend to save another. Madoka is not a helpless character, she is only helpless because she is unsure what to do to make things right. True to Madoka's character she understands the danger she is imposing by becoming a Witch, rather than use the Grief Seed to save her own life she saves Homura with no regrets, then she asks Homura to do the unthinkable. Under the agony of pain and sorrow Homura commits a merciful killing by stoping Madoka's transformation into a Witch. This is not the act of a cold blooded killer (which she has been accused to be many times) but that of a friend under duress.<br />
<br />
In no moment during the series Homura has been a senseless cold blooded killer or a murderer (under the narrow definition), it could be said that she has expressed her opinion to take bold action when the moment requires it, that includes taking a life (just like Madoka did). Which lead us to another controversy and criticism.<br />
<br />
<b>Sayaka:</b><br />
<br />
==Transformation Runes==<br />
People who have watched episode 11's blu-ray version must have noticed that Homura's transformation got a major overhaul, including a large quantity of spinning, floating runes.<br />
<br />
Would anyone be able to take high-quality screenshots of these so that they can be translated? I'm willing to do it, if someone uploads screenshots.<br />

<br />
:::My first thought wasn't that they were gauges, but more like old, analog stopwatches.[[Special:Contributions/216.54.82.164|216.54.82.164]] 14:02, 18 October 2011 (UTC)<br />

<br />
== Ties to Walpurgis Night ==<br />
<br />
This is sort of in response to the idea that Homura may be Walpurgis Night. Since Walpurgis Night is a conglomeration of witches, it certainly can't be Homura, at least not Homura alone. On the card for Walpurgis Night, it says that Walpurgis Night has a helpless nature, which Homura shares. She becomes a Puella Magi to save Madoka, which she continually fails to do. After her first revert of time she is an especially useless fighter. In episode three, Homura is bound up and unable to prevent Mami's death. However the card description also says that Walpurgis Night "will continue to rotate aimlessly until the whole of this age into a drama." Aimless hardly describes Akemi Homura, who is extremely focused on her goal. <br />
<br />
Yet the similarities between them are strong, and I have theory to explain it. <br />
<br />
In episode ten Homura states that Mami's fate is inevitable, she is killed in every possible timeline. Following this fate idea, it maybe that for each Magi there is a rival witch (or witches) who she fights in all timelines. Each witch of plot significance has strong similarities to the Magi that fights her. <br />
<br />
'''Charlotte''' has a love for sweets, or at least a theme based around sweets. Mami is seen several times eating cake. According to her card, her nature is tenacity, which could be applied to Mami wish to survive an accident. <br />
<br />
'''Elly''' has a covetous nature, which we see a little of in Sakaya, who doesn't react well to Hitomi's pursual of Kamijou. Elly also closed herself off from the world, as did Sakaya following her transformation into a Magi. They also share an affinity for water. <br />
<br />
'''Elsa Maria''' has trouble fitting in this theory because she has ties to both Sayaka and Kyoko. For the purposes of this theory, lets assume she was destined for Kyoko. Kyoko has the church connection and at one point held feelings of "self-righteousness" as described on Elsa's card. Kyoko's jointed spear has similarities to the snakes which Elsa Maria fights with. Elsa Maria is worshiping a torch held out by an arm. The similarity of this torch to that held by Lady Liberty gives a (admitted tenuous) connection to Kyoko's personal freedom. <br />
<br />
'''Walpurgis Night''' is also troublesome in her similarities to both Homura and Madoka. Both experience feelings of helplessness and have been seen fighting the witch in multiple timelines. For the purposes of the theory I will compare her only to Madoka. Walpurgis Night has very far reaching goals "turning the whole world into a drama," as does Madoka who wishes to make a sort of heaven on earth. Walpurgis Night has red jewels on her sleeve (heart on sleeve maybe?), while Madoka's color is pink which could be a near affinity. Also note the similarities between Madoka's witch-form, which together make an hour glass. Walpurgis Night may also continually reappear in the same place to find Madoka. This does not work perfectly, of course, Homura does much the same thing. If we assume that Homura IS Walpurgis Night (partially anyway), this opens up the connection to Madoka, rahter than diminishing it. Walpurgis Night's familiars of many witches has relevance to Madoka's role as a Magi saving other Magi from falling into despair. While Homura's reappearances are tethered to a single short period of time, Madoka appears all over the world in many times and time-lines, as does Walpurgis Night. Both also meet (and destroy) many Magi. <br />
<br />
Finally, if Madoka's rival witch is Walpurgis Night, then perhaps Homura has a rival in '''Gertrude'''. Gertrude has many war-related objects in her world, which ties in nicely to Homura's dependence on Modern weapons. Of most significance is the butterfly theme. Homura's transformation from a weak and helpless girl into her bow-weilding final form as a Puella Magi is very comparible to the metamorphasis of the butterfly. Butterflies are also related to the "betterfly effect", which is a theme played on in Madoka. Homura's devotion to and protection of Madoka is similar to Gertrud's care for her roses. The roses share a color affinity with Madoka. Gertrude has an insincere nature according to her card, which she may share with Homura in that Homura is forced to tell lies and behave coldly toward her friends in later timelines. Also signficant is presence of an Anthony (one of Gertrude's minions) at the end of the World. The Anthony certainly strengthen's Homura's ties to Gertrude, however it also complicates things for the theory. If the world is being destroyed, what business does an Anthony have chatting with Homura away from said world (and Gertrude). There's room to speculate if Homura ''is'' Gertrude, but again, since this does not fit into the theory let's just assume minions and familiars are capable of a little independence. Characteristic of the single-minded rivals, when they do meet, they do not make any efforts to fight each other, Homura is concerned with killing Kyubei and Gertrude is concerned with her roses. When confronted they both run away. <br />
<br />
I think I might be on to something here. Let me know what you think!<br />
[[User:OnionJack|OnionJack]] 14:20, 16 December 2011 (UTC)Onion Jack (Thomas)<br />
:As for the Anthony at the end of the world, a simple explanation is that Anthonies were the first witch-realm creatures Madoka encountered in the main timeline, so Madoka (who likes fluffy things) thinks of them as representatives of the magical world. (On a production level, Inu Curry said that Anthonies were their favorite)<br />
<br />
:I'm not convinced of direct connections between the girls and witches (in the sense of them being counterparts or witch forms of the girls), but it wouldn't be so strange if magical beings with things in common have a tendency to find each other kind of like how stand users in JoJo do. The runes in Charlotte's barrier talking about Mami and Homu could indicate witches experiencing things like Madoka's dream from the beginning of ep 1.

[[File:Shaft head tilt.jpg|thumb]]<br />
Something like that? -><br />
<br />
Ah, the infamous shaft head tilt. [[SHAFT]], the anime studio behind Madoka, is known for these sorts of strange directional touches. After [[Shinbo]] came along, along with sparse setting, post-modern architecture, quick eye cuts, fancy typography slides, and etc have became SHAFT's calling card. You can see these elements in pretty much every show SHAFT has worked on since. Madoka is actually fairly benign on these eccentricities. Check out [[Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei]] or [[Bakemonogatari]] for these coming out in full force.<br />
<br />
Now, concerning what it means - when you see a cut of a character quick turn and tilts her head slightly... It can mean a turn in mood; a shift in focus; a change of mind. Honestly though, it doesn't mean much. It's just something Shaft does. It's simply "Shaft being Shaft." <br />

== What's going on with the edit wars?! ==<br />
<br />
All of this adding and removing is putting this page's progress to a standstill. Can't we all get our ideas out in a way that doesn't intertwine/interrupt someone else's edit? T^T And then people remove the work of others to put their own... then they put it back... If you would like, use this section to try to sort everyone's thoughts on what to put where so that we all have our contributions and ideas that we worked on for the wiki mixed in there somewhere and having them transition in a nice and smooth manner without all of this extra misplaced stuff lying around. I don't want to feel like I have to look at older revisions of this page in order to get all of the information I'm looking for. It should be unnecessary, it's too time consuming, and it validates my point. --[[User:Lord Fawful|Lord Fawful]] 16:44, 9 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Someone apparently doesn't like the fact that the observations section calls Homura's behavior unhealthy and abusive and points out all the ways it is (and also ones like "Madoka using honorifics with her name visibly upsets her", for whatever reason), so they're constantly removing the information. It's pretty childish if you ask me. The page/section should probably get locked for a while (though it should be locked on a revision that has the abuse analysis on it. It's important and the kind of thing that people should really know about). --[[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 20:31, 9 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Can't we have both sides of the argument on the page? I mean, it's unfair to delete another's work just because you disagree with it, but we could find a way to make both ideas separate sections. --[[User:Lord Fawful|Lord Fawful]] 23:21, 10 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
There's not two separate ideas. It's one section (and then a few other bits) that keep being deleted by petty people who don't like the idea of their precious Homura being called abusive and unhealthy. I say we lock the page for a while to stop the edit war; maybe that'll even kill it. [[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 23:41, 10 June 2015 (UTC)<br />

<br />
There ''have'' been, but I've read the argument and it's not "justification" so much as it is excusing Homura's actions/essentially abuse apologism, so it's not acceptable. [[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 00:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)<br />

== The First Month ==<br />
<br />
Howdy folks. Given that the anime came out in 2011, and Homura gets out of the hospital on the 16th, and that day is shown to be falling on Wednesday, then the month her time loop starts in is March for certain. Granted, the calendar doesn't show what day the week starts on (most have Sunday as the first day of the week, but a few use Monday, though these are usually business or payroll calendars) and MAYBE the year isn't 2011 in the anime... But I don't see why not when everything else lines up just fine. Occam's Razor and all.

'''Homura Akemi''' is one of the main characters in ''[[Puella Magi Madoka Magica]]''. She is first seen by Madoka in a dream of her fighting a monster in a desolate landscape of skyscrapers. The day after the dream, Homura has transferred to Madoka's school where she gives her ominous warnings.<br />

[[Ume Aoki|Ms. Aoki]]’s Design Check: <br />
*A blunt girl. I tried to let this shine through in her design. Her distinguishing point is her silky long hair.<br />
* Magical girl outfit: Homura was designed with her personality and combat style in mind. I found her fascinating right away.<br />
* The sharp lines of her upper back and jacket evoke her personality. Overall rather monochromatic. Her black tights have a diamond pattern.<br />
* School uniform: She wears black tights in uniform too, leaving her overall feel just like in her magical girl outfit. She gives off the air of a silent beauty.<br />
<br />
==Personality==<br />
Since her arrival at Mitakihara Middle School, she is immediately depicted as being very intelligent, athletic, distant, and cold. It is revealed in [[episode 4]] that she is only like this because she has seen so much suffering during her tenure as a magical girl. Because of this, she does not want Madoka to become a magical girl and tries to do anything in order to stop her from making a wish with [[Kyubey]], going as far as to attempting to injure the cat-like creature. Despite her cold attitude towards others, she still very much cares for Madoka as it is her sole objective to protect her due to the countless amount blood, sweat, and tears she has shed over her jumps in time.<br />
<br />
In the original timeline where her journey began, however, Homura is portrayed as meek, shy, timid, clumsy and is known around the school for her lack of confidence. She was also known for her physical incapability of performing in P.E. class; she would get dizzy upon doing even the simplest of warm-up exercises. This had the unfortunate result of her being a target of bullying, as heard on [[Drama CD 1]]. Overwhelmed by her perceived uselessness, she begins questioning her existence and until she begins her fated friendship with Madoka, her feelings do not change. Madoka, alongside [[Mami Tomoe]], shows her the ropes and dangers of becoming a magical girl and notes that Madoka's own attitude became much healthier with every witch battle. In an ironic twist, in the anime timeline we see how frail and meek Madoka is, compared to the current Homura whose personality had performed a complete 180-degree turn due to her experiences in multiple timelines.<br />
<br />
Despite being regarded as emotionless by [[Sayaka Miki]], Homura is far from it. Although she does not easily show signs of remorse, sadness, or pity, it is only because she had grown used to the suffering around her. Her cold nature is from her determination to save Madoka after having failed in her mission to prevent Madoka from becoming a magical girl countless times. Homura herself has stated that she always feels badly with each life she unable to save or alter, but nevertheless, it does not slow her down from staying true to her main objective in saving Madoka.<br />
<br />
* '''Character development:''' Prior to the events of episode 1 (or timeline), from the very beginning Homura considered herself to be useless, and worthless. She didn't think people would miss her if she were to die or disappear. But Madoka was probably the first person to see Homura differently, for the good person that she was and opened her eyes that changed her way thinking about herself. With each timeline, we start to see a transformation not only in Homura but with Madoka as well, where there is a role reversal. It is now Madoka who believes she is powerless and worthless, someone who can't even do anything to save her friends, and it is Homura who believes that Madoka is too kind and reckless for trying to do to much for others. Unfortunately, over the course of looping time, Homura becomes colder and callous and her intentions to save Madoka shift solely into "Madoka's survival", causing Homura to become crueler towards her and others as a means of "protection". See also the paragraph about Homura showing emotionally abusive traits below. She seems to have grown past this by the finale, but it's ambiguous to whether or not Homura accepted or repressed her feelings. Either way, Homura is still heavily dependent on Madoka for self-validation, a trait which rears its ugly head during ''Rebellion''.<br />
<br />
==History==<br />
===Background===<br />
Homura's backstory was revealed in [[episode 10]]. She was a transfer student who was hospitalized for a long period of time due to heart disease. The whereabouts and status of her family is unknown, as they are never mentioned in the series. In the original timeline, Homura at this point is physically frail and weak most likely due to her illness. She wears glasses and braided hair in her early insecure depiction shown in episode 10. Later in that episode with renewed determination she undoes her braids and uses her soul gem to correct her vision and to heal her heart condition. From then on she no longer required the use of glasses.<br />
<br />
===Homura in the [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica|Anime]]===<br />
[[File:Timeline Chart.png|thumb|200px|The sequences of events in each timeline.]]<br />
====The original universe====<br />
Homura's time-loop officially starts on the [http://31.media.tumblr.com/37ba5111020188f08ea2a4c30d23dd9d/tumblr_n2ioz9qOj31qf874go1_1280.png 16th of the month in the anime] ([[Timeline|speculated to be sometime between March and April]]). She was released from the hospital on the 16th, and transferred to Mitakihara Middle School on the 25th. In the original timeline, she is attacked by a witch and saved by Madoka and Mami. Sometime during the next month, during [[Walpurgisnacht]], she becomes a magical girl while wishing to redo her meeting with Madoka, thus gaining the power to pause and/or rewind time one month.<br />
<br />
It is estimated Homura repeated the same month starting on the 16th nearly 100 times before the present timeline in the TV anime. Within these timelines, Homura was able to gradually improve her abilities and acquire items (such as ammunition and weapons from the Japanese military) to prepare for the battle with Walpurgisnacht. She was also able to memorize and deduce through statistics the major events that would occur within all timelines, giving her incredible knowledge about most of her adversaries. The corollary, however, was that Homura experienced the deaths of many of her friends repeatedly, often horrifically. As a general trend, Homura became increasingly distant to Madoka with each repeat of the month.<br />
<br />
By the timeline of the TV anime, Homura appeared as a cold and calculating character who is distant from all the characters. She failed to save all of her companions (apart from Madoka), and by Walpurgisnacht, was forced to face the witch alone. She was subsequently defeated by Walpurgisnacht, and seemed just about to succumb to despair before Madoka appears and rewrites the universe with her wish.<br />
<br />
====By the Anime's Finale====<br />
After Madoka's revision of the universe, Homura is the only known character to retain her memories of the previous universe. She has possession of Madoka's ribbon, and has a new black bow as her weapon similar to Madoka's weapon. It is unknown if she retained her abilities to manipulate time and space. Homura is shown to have a much closer relationship with Kyuubey, so much so she even confides an entire account about how the old universe worked. She also has the ability to create wings of energy, forming angelic wings when confronting Wraiths in the city, and jagged dark wings when walking through the desert.<br />

|style="padding:10px; background:#fff;"|<br />
Homura appears in the first pages of chapter 1 in flashback. She is shown saying her goodbyes to Madoka as in the last episode of the anime, with Madoka promising to meet her again and giving Homura her ribbons. She doesn't appear again until the end of chapter 2 after Sayaka has been led away by the Law of Cycles and Mami and Kyoko are standing at the station. Homura is introduced as the new transfer student and she leaves the class in order to meet with Mami and Kyoko on the rooftop, Homura wiping away a tear as she remembers meeting Madoka for the first time. They tell Homura about the giant wraith that has been seen lately and agree not to hunt it on their own. <br />
After several days of combing the city for the giant wraith and hunting down other more common wraiths, Homura has a short discussion with Kyubey about Madoka and the previous universe. Soon after, she encounters the giant wraith alone and attempts to defeat it herself by unleashing a large arrow of magic at it which takes on the form of a bird. However the giant wraith withstands the attack and is able to surprise Homura and overwhelm her, stealing a portion of her power. A smaller wraith steals Madoka's ribbon from her as well. <br />
<br />
After a nightmare, Homura wakes up in Mami's apartment, with Mami bringing her a tray of tea and many lecturing words. She asks Homura to transform into a magical girl, which she does successfully, and then to summon her weapon, which she cannot. Mami concludes that the wraiths stole a portion of Homura's power but has no idea on how to retrieve it. Homura is impatient to go and retrieve her powers, but Mami cautions her to play it safe and leave everything up to her and Kyoko. Homura alters her memories slightly before thanking Mami and leaving. In the city, Homura talks with Kyubey about the memory-manipulation magic she now has and her lack of time-stopping ability. She takes off to search the city when Kyoko runs into Homura while patrolling the streets. She assures Homura she won't tell Mami she saw her up and about knowing Mami would only lecture her further. When asked why she remains in the city despite Sayaka having disappeared, Kyoko responds she is still here to avenge Sayaka. Kyoko agrees to help Homura in finding and defeating the wraith provided she is the one to give the final blow. <br />
<br />
Despite using grief cubes, Homura finds her magical power has yet to recover which Kyubey explains is due to her soul gem's lack of capacity after the wraiths stole some of her power. As Homura sits in the park at night, Kyoko walks up to her telling her she's found a clue about the wraiths. Before Homura can come closer, Mami appears and fires at Kyoko, revealing her to be another mutant wraith that had taken on the form of Kyoko with the intent of attacking Homura. Mami summons several muskets and together her and Homura are able to hold off the wraiths but not for long. During the fight, Homura realizes the wraith is using time-manipulation magic. After a voice gives Homura advice, the two magical girls are able to overcome the wraiths' time-stopping ability and seemingly defeat the Wraith-Kyoko with Mami's Tiro Finale. After, the real Kyoko appears and informs them of the fake Sayaka and they agree on rules in order to limit their ability to be taken by surprise by the mutant wraiths. Mami and Kyoko leave, leaving Homura alone. She hears the voice from earlier once more and turns to see Madoka standing before her. However, this is not the real Madoka but a wraith who has taken on her form. She returns Madoka's ribbon to Homura before asking for her help in stopping the giant wraith. The fake Madoka explains how wraiths really work before explaining that the magic they took from Homura corrupted the wraiths, resulting in the mutant wraiths that take on human form. Despite Homura's reluctance in believing her story, she has the wraith follow her back to her apartment. There, Kyubey examines the wraith and confirms it carries a part of Homura's power in her. <br />
<br />
After several weeks of searching for the giant wraith, Homura and Wraith-Madoka are no closer to finding the whereabouts of the giant wraith. Wraith-Madoka asks Homura what she really thinks of her since she is taking the form of her most precious friend. Homura snaps at the wraith, telling her she is nothing more than a fake for which Homura holds no shred of emotion for and threatens to kill her for insulting Madoka's wish. But the wraith tells her she is lying to herself and that she is not only a wraith but also Homura's heart. <br />
<br />
Mami and Kyoko decide to begin their search from the beginning. Mami is upset to find that Homura had been searching for the giant wraith alone and worries that something may happen to her. Homura snaps at both Mami and Kyoko before taking off. Alone, Homura asks Kyubey what she wished for in order to become a magical girl but Kyubey doesn't know the answer to that. Homura worries that she may have used her memory-altering magic on herself in order to turn her dream of Madoka into memories instead. Wraith-Madoka catches up with Homura and offers to walk her home but not before Mami and Kyoko run into them. However, to Mami and Kyoko the wraith looks nothing like Madoka and only has the form of a mutant wraith wrapped around Homura. They transform into magical girls and prepare to rescue Homura, but Homura instead begs the wraith to save her from being a magical girl. The wraith takes Homura's soul gem and teleports them from the area, leaving Mami and Kyoko behind.<br />
<br />
At Homura's apartment, Homura and Wraith-Madoka sit in front of her many monitors and watch as a flashback plays out in which Homura makes her original wish to Kyubey to protect Madoka. Kyubey appears only to admonish Homura for having a wraith eat all of her emotions in order to avoid meeting the Law of Cycles. Outside, the wraiths begin their attack on the city, leaving people dead rather than simply emotionless. As Mami and Kyoko fight their respective battles, Wraith-Madoka and Homura watch from a nearby rooftop. Before the wraiths can bring the final blow to Mami, Wraith-Madoka takes the ribbon from Homura and unleashes several arrows from the air in Madoka's characteristic attack, protecting Mami. The wraith appears as Madoka to even Mami now that she has her ribbon. Together the wraith and Mami are able to work together to take down the two imposters.<br />
<br />
By this time the giant wraith has been consumed by the power it took from Homura and transforms into a witch-like creature complete with familiars. The wraith and Mami fight off the familiars but not before Kyoko and Mami are killed by the giant wraith. Wraith-Madoka continues in her struggle to defeat the witch-like wraith alone, but is overwhelmed and soon plummets to her death. Homura watches the battle dispassionately until she suddenly recovers herself and runs to catch the falling wraith. She realizes that Madoka is not a dream as the witch that stands before her is the proof that Madoka existed. <br />
<br />
Homura regains her original memories. Upon arriving to the new universe, she discovered that her time-manipulation shield no longer worked and she initially discarded it only to have the shield open a small portal to another world. Homura jumps into the world inside her shield and discovers Kriemhild Gretchen inside. Before she can destroy the shield, she realizes that if a witch is inside her shield then Madoka may also be inside fighting the witch. Instead, Homura used her magic to alter her own memories and causes herself to forget the existence of the time shield. <br />
<br />
After Homura and Wraith-Madoka land on the streets below, Homura reaches for the ribbon the wraith is holding and finds herself transported to another world. Her appearance changes to her original appearance with glasses and braids. There, she meets a doppelganger of herself who introduces itself as the personification of Homura's power that was stolen by the wraiths. It explains they are inside the world of her soul gem and that it was freed when the wraith that housed it was destroyed. After being stolen by the wraiths, her magical power was able to take control of one of the mutant wraiths in order to assist Homura. Homura asks her magical power what caused the wraiths to go rogue and her magic explains that it was due to the time manipulation magic coming from another universe with different laws. When Madoka and Homura parted ways in the space outside of the universe, their feelings for each other were so strong that a true miracle occurred and their feelings crystallized into a new soul gem for Homura. Because a miracle was granted to a magical girl without a normal exchange, it became separate from the laws of the universe and was considered in incomplete magic. After some time, this new magic began to interfere with her original magic, causing her shield and Madoka to suddenly link up. After Homura erased her memories of the shield, the wraiths stole the shield and were consumed by the curses that were contained within. Because the curses were a form of emotional energy not known in this universe, it corrupted the wraiths and caused the giant wraith to become a witch destined to destroy the world. Homura's thoughts take on the form of Sayaka, Kyoko and Mami who voice her self doubts in having rewritten her own memories rather than lose the shield and her proof of Madoka's existence. Homura takes off her glasses and undoes her braids, filled with a new resolve to protect Madoka even at the cost of her shield. She asks her magic to lend her power once more and her magic power takes on the form of her soul gem. <br />
<br />
Filled with power once more, Homura unleashes several hundred arrows that destroy the smaller wraiths and familiars before firing a single large arrow at the witch. As she drives the arrow further in, the witch cracks open and reveals the face of Kriemhild Gretchen and her shield inside. As Homura reaches for her shield, the witch uses its power to stab Homura through several times in an attempt to stop her. But Madoka appears before Homura and helps push her the last few inches towards the shield. As Homura touches the shield, it crumbles to pieces and the witch is obliterated. Back inside her soul gem, her magical power incarnate holds a sleeping Homura in her hands as she explains that Madoka has reset the timeline of this universe in order to prevent the curses of the previous world from interfering. Unlike last time however, Homura will lose her memories of the previous timeline. <br />
<br />
Homura snaps to alertness as she realizes she is standing at the station with Mami and Kyoko, Sayaka having just been led away by the Law of Cycles. Some time later, Homura is having the same discussion with Kyubey concerning Madoka and the previous universe. As Homura drops down to destroy the wraiths in the streets below, Kyubey reveals a piece of Homura's shield it managed to salvage and explains how he kept his memories of the previous timeline. Now that he has a piece of the shield and proof of Homura's story concerning the Law of Cycles, he and the other Incubators can now plan for a way in which they can capture Madoka. <br />
<br />
The chapter ends as Homura is walking in the desert, ready to take on a hoard of wraiths as several Incubators watch from atop some nearby ruins. <br />

===Homura in [[The Rebellion Story]]===<br />

|style="padding:10px; background:#fff;"|<br />
<blockquote>''"Without a doubt, this place is a witch's barrier."''</blockquote><br />
In events prior to ''[[The Rebellion Story]]'' Homura was captured by the [[Kyuubey|Incubators]], and her Soul Gem was placed in an Isolation Field that blocked out the Law of Cycles. This strain led Homura to transform partially into a witch without her knowledge. In this form, she also unconsciously created a labyrinth that was a near-perfect replica of Mitakihara City, and unconsciously lured her former acquaintances into it. She even drew in Madoka from the Law of Cycles, who entered the barrier along with Sayaka and [[Nagisa Momoe]]. In this dream world, Homura unconsciously distorted almost everyone's memories (including her own) so that they believed they were living in the real world fighting new enemies called [[Nightmare]]s. In order to stop the Incubators from fulfilling their goal, Madoka entrusted her memories and powers to Sayaka and Nagisa. Sayaka only pretended to have her memories altered, while Nagisa disguised herself as [[Charlotte]]/[[Bebe]].<br />
<br />
Eventually Homura realizes that she's trapped in a witch's barrier and attempts to discover who is behind it. Near the end of her journey she has a conversation with Madoka that causes her to realize that she can't accept Madoka's sacrifice. At this point she begins to realize she is the witch, and confirms it when she separates herself from her Soul Gem without consequence.<br />
<br />
At this point Kyubey appears and explains the truth about Homura's present nature and the Incubators' plan to control the Law of Cycles. This causes Homura to go berserk and curse her existence, completing her transformation into a witch known as [[Homulilly]]. Madoka and the other magical girls manage to rescue Homura by destroying the stasis field containing them all, returning them to reality. Due to the Isolation Field, Homura only became a witch inside her own Soul Gem, allowing Madoka to save her.<br />
<br />
Ultimate Madoka arrives to take Homura away as per the Law of the Cycle. However, Homura grabs Madoka first. Her Soul Gem turns black, then fills with swirling colors that Nagisa calls worse than curses. Reality begins to crack as Homura separates Madoka from her goddess self. The colors burst out of her Soul Gem, and both the cracks and colors engulf the entire universe.<br />
<br />
Homura and Kyubey reappear in the same place where Madoka ascended in [[Episode 12]]. Homura shatters her Soul Gem in her mouth, and a new gem appears called the Dark Orb. Kyubey exclaims that Homura is rewriting the universe, and asks what happened to her Soul Gem. Homura explains that she remembered all of the times she repeated time, and all of the pain she suffered for Madoka's sake. She says that even this pain has become precious to her, tainting her Soul Gem with something greater than curses. As she swallows the Dark Orb, she calls it the pinnacle of human emotions: Love.<br />
<br />
Homura transforms into a new form and grows a pair of black wings. Kyubey says that Homura is no longer a magical girl or a witch, and asks what Homura is now. Homura that since she brought down and imprisoned god, it's only appropriate to call her a demon (''akuma''). Kyubey decides that it was a mistake to experiment with human emotions and flees, but Homura grabs him and says she still needs his existence to deal with all the curses of the world.<br />

<blockquote>''"As I am now, I'm not a witch anymore. Something that could bring down a god and imprison her...I suppose you could only call such a being a demon."''</blockquote><br />
Homura effectively becomes a goddess of this new universe. Apart from her true nature as a demon, she still exists with a human form in the real world and can interact normally with everyone else. She appears to have the power to manipulate the memories of virtually anyone she pleases, but otherwise the full extent of her abilities are unknown. It is assumed that Homura is a deity that primarily embodies love (whereas Madoka embodies hope). <br />
<br />
Homura is presently holding a fraction of the Goddess Madoka captive--specifically, the part that was Madoka Kaname before she became the Law of Cycles. It is also implied she is placing the world's curses onto Kyubey. Despite proclaiming herself as a demon, Madoka, Sayaka, Kyoko, Mami, and Nagisa are all given happy lives in her new world.<br />

==Powers and Abilities==<br />
* In episode 9, it was revealed that Homura can stop time. However, anyone she touches while the ability is under effect will not be stopped. Along with stopping time, Homura can also reverse time to before her meeting with Madoka.<br />
**According to an interview in Otona Anime Vol. 20, translated by symbv, here is what Gen Urobuchi said on more of Homura's power: "The weapon that looks like Homura's shield is actually a sand timer. When the flow of the sand is blocked, time is stopped. And when there is no sand on the upper part of the sand timer and then the timer is reverted, one month's worth of time is turned back. But before that stage is reached, only time stopping is possible. This means the special power of Homura is the ability to manipulate one month's time's worth of sand in the sand timer. As for the time passed and then turned back, since it was not the focus in this work I did not think it through very thoroughly. I think you can say that the world split up and became parallel worlds there." In episode 11, we see Homura's sand run out in the middle of her fight with Walpurgisnacht, verifying this limitation of her time stop powers.<br />
**[[NewType_2011-05#Homura.27s_shield|Gen Urobuchi stated that he didn't really think too much about the mechanics of Homura's time loops]], so the nature of Homura's power is not only a mystery, but it is not fully understood not even by the creative source.<br />
* Homura's shield is able to store a countless amount of weapons, as demonstrated by the many pistols, light machineguns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and boxes of ammunition packed inside it. Note that her shield is relatively small and she is able to wear it around her wrist, much like a watch.<br />
<br />
'''Wraith Arc'''<br /><br />
After Madoka resets the universe, their feelings for each other crystallized into Homura's new soul gem and Homura was granted a new wish. Homura now has the ability to alter people's memories and owing to her new abilities Homura's weapon is instead a black bow similiar to Madoka's. Her shield is no longer able to reset time, however when wraiths stole Homura's power they were shown with the ability to stop time. When Homura uses her black bow to fire arrows, she summons the same magic symbol Madoka does, however her symbol has diamond shapes rather than circles. She has been shown transforming her arrows into birdlike forms and combining them into a crossbow-like form for added power. Homura also has the ability to create wings of energy, shown forming angelic wings when confronting Wraiths in the city and jagged dark wings when walking through the desert.<br />
<br />
==Observations==<br />
* She appears to live by herself; her [[Homura Residence|residence]] only has her name on the nameplate, much like [[Mami]]'s. In episode 10, when she wakes up in the hospital, no-one is there with her, and she seems to have been filling out the school transfer forms on her own.<br />
* Her [[Homura_Residence|house]] has a wall display of documents relating to witches.<br />
* She is visibly upset when Madoka uses her last name or honorifics instead of the more intimate "Homura".<br />
* Homura calls everyone by their full name, giving the impression of being distant to people. This is most likely an attempt of her part to distance herself emotionally with everyone.<br />
** In [[episode 10]], Homura goes from formal to first name basis with Madoka.<br />
** In [[episode 9]] when Kyoko sacrifices herself to save Sayaka, Homura calls her by her first name.<br />
** The way she calls Sayaka varies on timelines. And she always refers to Mami as by her full name or Tomoe-san, probably because she is her senior. <br />
* Homura's appearance in episode 12 (in the new timeline) from the manga is different than her appearance from the anime. In the anime, her clothes and hairstyle remain the same, with Madoka's ribbon as her accessories. However, in the manga, she wears a new dress, changes her hairstyle to two pigtails with the ribbons Madoka gave her.<br />
* Some viewers that noticed that Homura shows several traits of emotional abuse towards Madoka throughout the series. She intimidates Madoka, with Madoka often looking uncomfortable or fearful around her (multiple times, notably once in episode 1), belittles her by calling her a fool or idiot at various points (and telling her she "won't hold back against a fool" at one point in episode 6) and doesn't treat her as an equal, tells her not to ever change herself (episode 1) and to give up on or forget about her friends (episodes 5 and 7 regarding Sayaka), controls her decisions regardless of Madoka's wants or feelings, and especially without her explicit consent (several points in the anime, ''Rebellion''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s ending), follows or stalks her repeatedly (''Madoka Magica'', ''The Different Story'' &mdash; notice how she is almost always in time to stop Madoka making a contract or to save her from harm), has shown to be capable of doing extreme things in the name of Madoka's sake (attempting to kill Sayaka in episode 8), is capable of throwing other's lives away for Madoka's sake (again, Sayaka; ''[[Oriko Magica]]'' has a scene where Madoka acknowledges this), constantly withholds highly important information from Madoka (such as important info regarding magical girls, Kyubey, or Sayaka's situation), and tries to drive others away from Madoka/Madoka away from others if she perceives them as a threat to her safety (Mami and Sayaka). As well as this, in ''Rebellion'', as [http://sir-argues-a-lot.tumblr.com/post/120208656402/what-about-in-rebellion-thats-the-main-example-a this] tumblr post points out: Homura alters Madoka's memories and takes away her powers, places herself in a position of influence over Madoka by making Madoka into her shyer pre-series self (who may in fact be even [http://lynx-you-fucking-nerd.tumblr.com/post/122473500711/whoneedsamap-lynx-you-fucking-nerd-madoka shyer] than that) and into a new transfer student, and appears to even sever all her previous friendships, especially from Sayaka, who was previously Madoka's childhood and best friend.<br />
** Homura also shows many traits of a textbook psychopath, as explained in detail [http://villaininglasses.tumblr.com/post/99305261455/matsurisunrise-lustfuldemoness here]. Much of the analysis also overlaps with the emotional abuse analysis above.<br />
*Homura may actually be Faust, as Faust in the play tries all his might to save Gretchen (Madoka) from dying but in the end she perishes anyways as Mephistopheles (QB) tries to tempt her to form a contract with him.<br />
** There's also the fact that in the Goethe version, Faust would only lose his soul if he ever had a moment of perfect happiness that made him wish he could stop time at that moment forever. Homura's power, of course, is to stop time. As such, it's entirely possible that the Homura and Faust parallels will be taken to its logical conclusion: She will have a moment of perfect happiness, she will stop time at that moment, and then she will die or become a witch. However, it should be mentioned that Faust manages to escape Mephistopheles and enter heaven because he found his moment of happiness in helping others, and not in anything Mephistopheles gave him. On the other hand, there is a [[Kriemhild Gretchen|witch that tries to create heaven on Earth.]]<br />
** In the story of Faust, the devil grants him "magical powers" for 24 years, "one year for each hour of the day," and the deal was at the end of the "24 years," the devil would claim his soul. Homura's "weapon" is an hourglass, and her hourglass can reset time by one month. Given the strong parallels to Faust, and how at the end of the last loop, Homura was about to lose her soul (by giving in to Kyuubey's master plan and her Soul Gem becoming corrupted), it is entirely probable that her loop lasted for a total of 24 months/loop attempts as a reasonable conservative estimate, and the full Faustian 24 years as a more gruesome estimate. Given how radically her personality has changed since the first loop attempt, and how she seems to have memorized most of the key events of the loop, 24 months seems like a plausible number. <br />
* The reason why Homura can't prevent Madoka from being a magical girl may be interpreted that it is Madoka becoming a magical girl that makes Homura become magical girl. If Homura really did, there will be a paradox. But effect can't change the cause. Therefore, no matter how many times she tries, she is destined to fail. <br />
** Another evidence may support this idea. In the end of episode 12, Homura is still a magic girl and she knows the existence of Madoka. It is because Homura became a magic girl and her trying hundreds of times to save Madoka that gives Madoka the ability to become Madokami. Even Madokami can't change what she is based on to exist. The effect can't change the cause.<br />
*In Rebellion, {{spoiler|before Homura transforms into Akuma Homura, she smashes her Soul Gem between her teeth, like a nutcracker. Given this, it seems likely she is still the Nutcracker Witch despite Madoka's intervention}}<br />
**This idea seems further supported by Kyubey's referring to her as {{spoiler|"neither a Magical Girl, nor a Witch". As it is likely she is now both, since she contains features both of them have, like a human appearance, a Soul Gem, familiars, and a barrier.}}<br />
<br />
==Etymology==<br />
* Her first name is written in hiragana, which has no special meaning. However, when written in kanji, it can mean:<br />
** flame, blaze (炎 or 焔)<br />
** heart on fire (心火)<br />
* Though only 焔, 炎, and 心火 are actually Japanese given names.<br />
* The official [[Licensing in Taiwan|Chinese translation]] uses (焔) "flame, blaze" as the characters for her first name. However, no official kanji of her name exists in the original Japanese version. Madoka says at one point to Homura that she should act badass to match it and Sayaka even uses a firehose on her in {{spoiler|a timeline}}. In ''Rebellion'', there are many scenes of fire and {{spoiler|parallels are made between her and the name of Lucifer, since both are references to fire.}} It can also refer to how assumed witches were burned at the stake.<br />
* The first character for Akemi (暁) means "daybreak", while the second one (美) means beauty which is a common letter in girl's names.<br />
** In an early production sketch, her surname was given as (暁海) "daybreak sea" instead of (暁美). Both are read as Akemi.<br />
** Her last name can also be used as a first name.<br />
* When her full name is written vertically in hiragana (あけみほむら) and covering the left half at a certain angle, it could be read as カナメまどか which is Kaname written in katakana and Madoka written in hiragana.<br />
<br />
==Trivia==<br />
*At a [[Nitro+ Q&A Panels at Animagic 2013|Nitro+ Q&A Panel]] it was revealed that Homura went through almost 100 timelines. <i><b>Q:</b> How many timelines did Homura go through? <b>A:</b> Approaching 100.</i><br />
** If Homura really did loop the same month and a half nearly 100 times, she would technically be around 26-years old, having spent 12 years looping time. (Calculations [http://homura.tumblr.com/post/57010494639/when-asked-how-many-timelines-did-homura-go here].) However, since her body is always reset along with time, she is still only 14-years old physically. This makes Homura about twelve years older mentally than Madoka.<br />
* Homura finds a manual on how to make bombs from the internet. According with the [http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%85%B9%E8%85%B9%E6%99%82%E8%A8%88#.E5.89.B5.E4.BD.9C.E7.89.A9.E3.81.B8.E3.81.AE.E7.99.BB.E5.A0.B4 Japanese Wikipedia] the manual is titled {{Nihongo|'''Hara Hara Tokei'''|腹腹時計|[[wikipedia:Hara_Hara_Tokei|Hara Hara Tokei]]}}, published in March 1974 by a [[wikipedia:East_Asia_Anti-Japan_Armed_Front|far-left terrorist organization]].<br />
** Incidentally, the manual explains with illustrations that ''“Anyone with a middle-school level knowledge of chemistry can do it”''.<br />
* Homura is frequently referred to as "Homerun-chan" amongst Western fans, due to the similarity of the two names in Japanese, however she is frequently referred as "Homuhomu" (ほむほむ) within Japanese community. Homuhomu likely originated from the [[Runes:Episode_3|runes in Episode 3]], one of which translates to "Homuhomu". Interestingly, when a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_run homerun] is enacted in sports, you (in addition to gaining a point/level) {{spoiler|essentially get back where you started}}.<br />
** "Homuhomu" can be used as a verb as "do Homuhomu" (ほむほむする) which means to caress, console or take care of. The action of "do Homuhomu" is not defined exactly.<br />
** Originally started by the fan community it has been embraced and adopted by the industry to become [[Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_Portable#Interview_with_the_PSP_Game_producers|part of the official language and usage.]]<br />
** Sometimes also jokingly refered to as "Homurika" due to {{spoiler|shared similarity of circumstances (having to go through many timelines to prevent a tragedy) with Rika Furude (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)}} '''Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni spoilers'''.<br />
* Some folks in 2ch nicknamed [[Homura Residence|Homura's Residence]] {{nihongo|Homu-home|ほむホーム|Homuhōmu}} since Homu is a nickname for Homura, and Hōmu is "home" rendered in the Japanese syllabary. It should be noted that "homu" is more often used for dog houses and similar structures, with the English word "home" expressed using "uchi" (うち, which refers to one's own house or household), "ie" (いえ, which can refer to a physical house or a family lineage), or the honorific "otaku" (お宅, which refers to someone else's house or household).<br />
* Apparently there is a [http://extrovertedotaku.blogspot.com/2011/04/akemi-homuras-weapon-gallery.html rumor on the net] that some weapons went "missing" at the [[wikipedia:Japan_Self-Defense_Forces|JSDF]] and [[wikipedia:United_States_Forces_Japan|US military bases in Japan]]. There is only one [http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%8E%96%E7%8F%A0%E9%A7%90%E5%B1%AF%E5%9C%B0%E6%AD%A6%E5%99%A8%E4%BA%A1%E5%A4%B1%E4%BA%8B%E4%BB%B6 official report] regarding the missing/stolen weapons. It is not known if the rumors of the <s>stolen</s> missing weapons inspired their appearance in the series. Nor is there any evidence indicating that the perpetrator was a time traveling magical girl.<br />
* In the [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica Official Guidebook "You Are Not Alone"]] Hanokage jokingly describes Homura as "Hommando" in her After-Recording Report comic, because of the excessive vast arsenal of weaponry she unleashes in [[Episode 11]]. Apparently the smörgåsbord of weaponry was added later, they were not originally depicted in the early stages of the screenplay.<br />
** One fan estimates that Homura used ¥ 1,383,040,300 Yen worth of military weaponry & equipment (that's $17,037,114 USD in today's dollars).[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE4b5yPG5qg&feature=player_embedded]<br />
* Homura is the strongest of the magical girls as long as [[Nitro+ Q&A Panels at Animagic 2013|no one discovers the nature of her power.]]<br />
* In Audio commentary for [[Episode 4]], Urobuchi liked Chiwa Saitou for the role because she had a "Dark Beauty" feeling.<br />
** In the Audio commentary for [[Episode 7]], Chiwa Saitou explains she tried the role of Kyubey and Kyousuke first, until Gen Urobuchi convinced her to try the role of Homura.<br />
** Chiwa Saito explains that she found the character of Homura to be strong but also to be a weak/delicate girl. Aoi Yuuki adds that the Homura character had no other choice but to become strong.<br />
*** Ryouko Shintani states that would be true for a character that has something or someone important to protect.<br />

<br />
i wanted to add an observation about how Akuma Homura cracks her soul gem between her teeth, like a nutracker. Could I do that? [[User:Leafbladie|Leafbladie]] ([[User talk:Leafbladie|talk]]) 15:07, 27 April 2019 (UTC)leafbladie<br />
:Yeah, I think that's more than appropriate. It fits in line with her theme. [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 16:21, 27 April 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
I strongly suggest that we move all speculations from this page to a speculation page dedicated to Homura (and possibly the other four main characters). This could be a good occasion to clean up all the stuff that was proven wrong.<br />
:I concur. -[[User:Becquerel|Becquerel]] 04:16, 22 April 2011 (UTC)<br />
::I agree too, if by "clean up" you mean "tag properly", like the wishes thing. No content should be removed IMO, just for "historical accurracy" --[[User:Homerun-chan|Homerun-chan]] 07:41, 22 April 2011 (UTC)<br />
I agree with the speculation moving, but I think we should have a dedicated page for speculation on each character. I have loads of speculation talked over heaps with my brother that I really want to post here... until I saw this. I also think that the speculation pages dedicated to each character should be just for speculah that hasn't been proven right or wrong yet. Theories proved right or wrong should just be placed on the official page on the character. <span style="font-size:15px;line-height:19px;font-family:{{#switch:{{{variant}}}|musical=MadokaMusical|#default=MadokaRunes}};">FIFI</span> 00:32, 14 August 2013 (UTC)<br />
:I also agree that something should be done about the speculation. Moving everything unconfirmed doesn't sound like a bad idea (and quite easy to do for this page), but there's also pages like [[Kyoko#Speculations & Observations|Kyoko's]] where everything is even more disorganized. For now, I'd direct you to the [[Theories]] page. Feel free to make a new page there if you have a lot of connected speculation. --[[User:Knon|Knon]] 10:05, 14 August 2013 (UTC)<br />
<br />
abour her strong power in the new timeline: maybe because she suffered much in all the previous timelines she got a boost-up just like madoka<br />
<br />
<br />
I removed stuff that didn't belong on this page (there was speculah about Walpurgis Night's familiars, for example, which is already present on WPN's various pages and doesn't need to be here) as well as the needless arguments on theories that have been debunked. If I knew how to make new pages -and- make said new pages look pretty and formatted, I'd move the whole speculah section to a new page, but my mad skillz at wiki pages go as far as "I can edit text".<br />
:Regarding the theories proven right/wrong, and your editing skills, I made [[Template:Theory/Header|a template]] to classify theories by status (see output [[User:Homerun-chan/Theory_tags|here]]). I do not have the time right now, but I think it'd be a good idea to order the theories by category then --it's in the [[wishlist]] actually --[[User:Homerun-chan|Homerun-chan]] 10:07, 5 May 2011 (UTC)<br />

:Fitting actually that you mention article. You could post your thoughts freely and put it there. Right now, it feels like you want to write about all the characters and not just Homura. It's also gone beyond the facts to the point that if it stayed on the Homura page, I'd have to say it goes under speculah. --[[User:Randomanon|randomanon]] 08:24, 28 June 2011 (UTC)<br />
::I moved the draft here. I feel like the writing is going to become larger as I feel like to understand the Homura character we have to also understand her interaction to others as perhaps her personal experience with them and a need for comparison. I wonder If this should become a separate article all together?... --[[User:Mutopis|Mutopis]] 09:02, 28 June 2011 (UTC)<br />
<br />
==Understanding Homura's Stoicism==<br />
Homura's emotionless and cold exterior has been misinterpreted and misunderstood by fans and observers alike. This has led to the interpretation that Homura is a dangerous Yandere, others believe her to be a psychopath with littler regard for human lives (with the exception of Madoka), but these interpretations are highly incorrect and inaccurate. This is caused by the misleading first impression we build from lacking a fundamental understanding of her background and personality. To understand Homura it is essential to rewatch some of her scenes and discover the subtle differences from first time viewing for comparison. Once we understand Homura's background and mission and her single obsession to save Madoka viewers would observe Homura in a new light.<br />
<br />
Beneath Homura's stoic mask one will uncover the true Homura, a trace of her true self that she tries to shield with an emotional wall to cope with the rising danger of accumulating too much despair. Homura isn't the only character to be misinterpreted and misunderstood for expressing controversial opinions and actions to reach her goal, but their comparison would help to differentiate Homura from the rest of the characters. Homura developed an early survival skill to cope with her new realty to save Madoka.<br />
<br />
<b>Homura's Past:</b> <br />
<br />
To understand the Homura character it is essential to watch [[Episode 10]] and to listen the drama CD ''[[Drama CD 1|"Memories of you"]]''. First, the Drama CD contains information regarding Homura's difficulty to adapt to a new school setting as a transfer student; no one knows her nor they try to understand her and her struggles. In her new environment Homura experiences school bullying (non-physical), demeaning rumors behind her back, and low opinion about her abilities as a person and as a student. Homura is already a fragile girl with low self-esteem caused by her weak heart and her weak physical body, with the addition of emotional stress caused by her unpopularity at school it is enough to emotionally crush her to the point of driving her to suicide and despair, or at least an enticement under a Witch's spell to end her suffering.<br />
<br />
Another source of Homura's emotional transformation are the events taking place in the different timelines in [[Episode 10]]. Homura's experience in different timelines brought her insight into how to formulate different ways to rescue Madoka and stop Walpurgis Night. When a new element of surprised was introduced in the timeline, Homura would formulate a new solution to deviate from the same outcome. The first issue was uncovering the truth about the Puella Magi system, Homura tried to convince the girls that Kyubey was deceiving them. Sayaka reacted with distrust and Mami with skepticism, Madoka as well. The reasons are understandable as Homura is a stranger and a new comer and without any evidence to back her claim they arent ready to accept the truth. However, Mami's and Sayaka's real reasons differentiate with Madoka's and it sheds a light to their character.<br />
<br />
<b>Murder:</b><br />
<br />
Mami's character is the embodiment of a humble Ojou-sama and a kind Onee-sama. While Mami exudes class, grace, and beauty, she never flaunts her privilege or status. She tries to become a mentor for Madoka and Sayaka but at the same time tries to caution them that the life of a Puella Magi is not without sacrifice and difficulties. Mami's speech in [[Episode 3]] gives us a glimpse to the kind of life Mami has led so far, a very lonely and solitary life with no one to call a friend. Mami's seriousness is betrayed by her emotional outburst of joy and monologue when Madoka pledges to become a Puella Magi and join together with Mami in her duty to hunt down Witches and protect the city. For the first time we learn that Mami is truly happy with being a Puella Magi. We must consider that while Mami took her responsibility as a Puella Magi with seriousness and professionalism, we can see through flashes that she was unhappy with that type of life. Perhaps we it can interpret her duty as a Puella Magi a form of [[wiki:Noblesse_oblige|''Noblesse Oblige'']]. <br />
<br />
If [[Episode 3]] uncovers Mami's unhappiness then [[Episode 10]] marks her despair. The nature of her despair requires a deep analysis to understand Mami's lapse of judgement and brief moment of insanity. Given the glimpse we observe regarding Mami's solitary lifestyle and her sacrifice to protect the people and the city, it is understandable as to why Mami lost her composure. One could interpret that all her work and sacrifice was for naught, that the lives she saved would be meaningless once she became a Witch, and that her personal sacrifice and unhappiness contributed to the propagation of a horrifying system. Mami's sense of despair is understandable, however, her following actions contribute to her criticism and are the source of many arguments against her character. Mami's early impression is shattered once she gives in into despair and we glimpse into her weakest moment as a human being. But on the other hand it could be interpreted as the next logical step into a world that has gone mad. Mami knows that her friends have no future, that it is only a matter of time they will become Witches, to spare them of their suffering (and her own) and halt the death of future victims at their hands as Witches she decides that death (and suicide) is the logical and noble choice. No matter the interpretation or justification to fans what Mami did is considered an unforgivable act. What Mami committed was an act of betrayal by killing her ''kouhai'', she commits murder by attempting to take their lives without their consent and consultation.<br />
<br />
Surprisingly the Anime series presents different acts that involves killing and murder under different circumstances. And each act requires to be judged on their own. If Mami's action in [[Episode 10]] can be interpreted as a betrayal (or desperation), then Madoka's action to stop Mami's murdering rampage can be interpreted as an act of self-defense and justifiable homicide, acting in defense of others (or in this case an attempt to save Homura). Many fans have criticized Madoka as a helpless crybaby, but this (horrifying) single act of bravery demonstrates Madoka's measure as a Puella Magi and as a person. Not only is she willing to take personal risks to save others, but she is also willing to make the tough choices when the situation calls for it, even if it means killing a friend to save another. Madoka is not a helpless character, she is only helpless because she is unsure what to do to make things right. True to Madoka's character she understands the danger she is imposing by becoming a Witch, rather than use the Grief Seed to save her own life she saves Homura with no regrets, then she asks Homura to do the unthinkable. Under the agony of pain and sorrow Homura commits a merciful killing by stoping Madoka's transformation into a Witch. This is not the act of a cold blooded killer (which she has been accused to be many times) but that of a friend under duress.<br />
<br />
In no moment during the series Homura has been a senseless cold blooded killer or a murderer (under the narrow definition), it could be said that she has expressed her opinion to take bold action when the moment requires it, that includes taking a life (just like Madoka did). Which lead us to another controversy and criticism.<br />
<br />
<b>Sayaka:</b><br />
<br />
==Transformation Runes==<br />
People who have watched episode 11's blu-ray version must have noticed that Homura's transformation got a major overhaul, including a large quantity of spinning, floating runes.<br />
<br />
Would anyone be able to take high-quality screenshots of these so that they can be translated? I'm willing to do it, if someone uploads screenshots.<br />

== Ties to Walpurgis Night ==<br />
<br />
This is sort of in response to the idea that Homura may be Walpurgis Night. Since Walpurgis Night is a conglomeration of witches, it certainly can't be Homura, at least not Homura alone. On the card for Walpurgis Night, it says that Walpurgis Night has a helpless nature, which Homura shares. She becomes a Puella Magi to save Madoka, which she continually fails to do. After her first revert of time she is an especially useless fighter. In episode three, Homura is bound up and unable to prevent Mami's death. However the card description also says that Walpurgis Night "will continue to rotate aimlessly until the whole of this age into a drama." Aimless hardly describes Akemi Homura, who is extremely focused on her goal. <br />
<br />
Yet the similarities between them are strong, and I have theory to explain it. <br />
<br />
In episode ten Homura states that Mami's fate is inevitable, she is killed in every possible timeline. Following this fate idea, it maybe that for each Magi there is a rival witch (or witches) who she fights in all timelines. Each witch of plot significance has strong similarities to the Magi that fights her. <br />
<br />
'''Charlotte''' has a love for sweets, or at least a theme based around sweets. Mami is seen several times eating cake. According to her card, her nature is tenacity, which could be applied to Mami wish to survive an accident. <br />
<br />
'''Elly''' has a covetous nature, which we see a little of in Sakaya, who doesn't react well to Hitomi's pursual of Kamijou. Elly also closed herself off from the world, as did Sakaya following her transformation into a Magi. They also share an affinity for water. <br />
<br />
'''Elsa Maria''' has trouble fitting in this theory because she has ties to both Sayaka and Kyoko. For the purposes of this theory, lets assume she was destined for Kyoko. Kyoko has the church connection and at one point held feelings of "self-righteousness" as described on Elsa's card. Kyoko's jointed spear has similarities to the snakes which Elsa Maria fights with. Elsa Maria is worshiping a torch held out by an arm. The similarity of this torch to that held by Lady Liberty gives a (admitted tenuous) connection to Kyoko's personal freedom. <br />
<br />
'''Walpurgis Night''' is also troublesome in her similarities to both Homura and Madoka. Both experience feelings of helplessness and have been seen fighting the witch in multiple timelines. For the purposes of the theory I will compare her only to Madoka. Walpurgis Night has very far reaching goals "turning the whole world into a drama," as does Madoka who wishes to make a sort of heaven on earth. Walpurgis Night has red jewels on her sleeve (heart on sleeve maybe?), while Madoka's color is pink which could be a near affinity. Also note the similarities between Madoka's witch-form, which together make an hour glass. Walpurgis Night may also continually reappear in the same place to find Madoka. This does not work perfectly, of course, Homura does much the same thing. If we assume that Homura IS Walpurgis Night (partially anyway), this opens up the connection to Madoka, rahter than diminishing it. Walpurgis Night's familiars of many witches has relevance to Madoka's role as a Magi saving other Magi from falling into despair. While Homura's reappearances are tethered to a single short period of time, Madoka appears all over the world in many times and time-lines, as does Walpurgis Night. Both also meet (and destroy) many Magi. <br />
<br />
Finally, if Madoka's rival witch is Walpurgis Night, then perhaps Homura has a rival in '''Gertrude'''. Gertrude has many war-related objects in her world, which ties in nicely to Homura's dependence on Modern weapons. Of most significance is the butterfly theme. Homura's transformation from a weak and helpless girl into her bow-weilding final form as a Puella Magi is very comparible to the metamorphasis of the butterfly. Butterflies are also related to the "betterfly effect", which is a theme played on in Madoka. Homura's devotion to and protection of Madoka is similar to Gertrud's care for her roses. The roses share a color affinity with Madoka. Gertrude has an insincere nature according to her card, which she may share with Homura in that Homura is forced to tell lies and behave coldly toward her friends in later timelines. Also signficant is presence of an Anthony (one of Gertrude's minions) at the end of the World. The Anthony certainly strengthen's Homura's ties to Gertrude, however it also complicates things for the theory. If the world is being destroyed, what business does an Anthony have chatting with Homura away from said world (and Gertrude). There's room to speculate if Homura ''is'' Gertrude, but again, since this does not fit into the theory let's just assume minions and familiars are capable of a little independence. Characteristic of the single-minded rivals, when they do meet, they do not make any efforts to fight each other, Homura is concerned with killing Kyubei and Gertrude is concerned with her roses. When confronted they both run away. <br />
<br />
I think I might be on to something here. Let me know what you think!<br />
[[User:OnionJack|OnionJack]] 14:20, 16 December 2011 (UTC)Onion Jack (Thomas)<br />
:As for the Anthony at the end of the world, a simple explanation is that Anthonies were the first witch-realm creatures Madoka encountered in the main timeline, so Madoka (who likes fluffy things) thinks of them as representatives of the magical world. (On a production level, Inu Curry said that Anthonies were their favorite)<br />
<br />
:I'm not convinced of direct connections between the girls and witches (in the sense of them being counterparts or witch forms of the girls), but it wouldn't be so strange if magical beings with things in common have a tendency to find each other kind of like how stand users in JoJo do. The runes in Charlotte's barrier talking about Mami and Homu could indicate witches experiencing things like Madoka's dream from the beginning of ep 1.

[[File:Shaft head tilt.jpg|thumb]]<br />
Something like that? -><br />
<br />
Ah, the infamous shaft head tilt. [[SHAFT]], the anime studio behind Madoka, is known for these sorts of strange directional touches. After [[Shinbo]] came along, along with sparse setting, post-modern architecture, quick eye cuts, fancy typography slides, and etc have became SHAFT's calling card. You can see these elements in pretty much every show SHAFT has worked on since. Madoka is actually fairly benign on these eccentricities. Check out [[Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei]] or [[Bakemonogatari]] for these coming out in full force.<br />
<br />
Now, concerning what it means - when you see a cut of a character quick turn and tilts her head slightly... It can mean a turn in mood; a shift in focus; a change of mind. Honestly though, it doesn't mean much. It's just something Shaft does. It's simply "Shaft being Shaft." <br />

== What's going on with the edit wars?! ==<br />
<br />
All of this adding and removing is putting this page's progress to a standstill. Can't we all get our ideas out in a way that doesn't intertwine/interrupt someone else's edit? T^T And then people remove the work of others to put their own... then they put it back... If you would like, use this section to try to sort everyone's thoughts on what to put where so that we all have our contributions and ideas that we worked on for the wiki mixed in there somewhere and having them transition in a nice and smooth manner without all of this extra misplaced stuff lying around. I don't want to feel like I have to look at older revisions of this page in order to get all of the information I'm looking for. It should be unnecessary, it's too time consuming, and it validates my point. --[[User:Lord Fawful|Lord Fawful]] 16:44, 9 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Someone apparently doesn't like the fact that the observations section calls Homura's behavior unhealthy and abusive and points out all the ways it is (and also ones like "Madoka using honorifics with her name visibly upsets her", for whatever reason), so they're constantly removing the information. It's pretty childish if you ask me. The page/section should probably get locked for a while (though it should be locked on a revision that has the abuse analysis on it. It's important and the kind of thing that people should really know about). --[[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 20:31, 9 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Can't we have both sides of the argument on the page? I mean, it's unfair to delete another's work just because you disagree with it, but we could find a way to make both ideas separate sections. --[[User:Lord Fawful|Lord Fawful]] 23:21, 10 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
There's not two separate ideas. It's one section (and then a few other bits) that keep being deleted by petty people who don't like the idea of their precious Homura being called abusive and unhealthy. I say we lock the page for a while to stop the edit war; maybe that'll even kill it. [[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 23:41, 10 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
Oh, so it's just deletion and vandalism!? I thought I saw some links being posted about her actions being justified in someone else's view. I was under the impression that it was just conflicting ideas. Sorry about that. --[[User:Lord Fawful|Lord Fawful]] 23:56, 10 June 2015 (UTC)<br />
<br />
There ''have'' been, but I've read the argument and it's not "justification" so much as it is excusing Homura's actions/essentially abuse apologism, so it's not acceptable. [[Special:Contributions/198.41.239.138|198.41.239.138]] 00:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)<br />

== The First Month ==<br />
<br />
Howdy folks. Given that the anime came out in 2011, and Homura gets out of the hospital on the 16th, and that day is shown to be falling on Wednesday, then the month her time loop starts in is March for certain. Granted, the calendar doesn't show what day the week starts on (most have Sunday as the first day of the week, but a few use Monday, though these are usually business or payroll calendars) and MAYBE the year isn't 2011 in the anime... But I don't see why not when everything else lines up just fine. Occam's Razor and all.

'''Homura Akemi''' is one of the main characters in ''[[Puella Magi Madoka Magica]]''. She is first seen by Madoka in a dream of her fighting a monster in a desolate landscape of skyscrapers. The day after the dream, Homura has transferred to Madoka's school where she gives her ominous warnings.<br />

[[Ume Aoki|Ms. Aoki]]’s Design Check: <br />
*A blunt girl. I tried to let this shine through in her design. Her distinguishing point is her silky long hair.<br />
* Magical girl outfit: Homura was designed with her personality and combat style in mind. I found her fascinating right away.<br />
* The sharp lines of her upper back and jacket evoke her personality. Overall rather monochromatic. Her black tights have a diamond pattern.<br />
* School uniform: She wears black tights in uniform too, leaving her overall feel just like in her magical girl outfit. She gives off the air of a silent beauty.<br />
<br />
==Personality==<br />
Since her arrival at Mitakihara Middle School, she is immediately depicted as being very intelligent, athletic, distant, and cold. It is revealed in [[episode 4]] that she is only like this because she has seen so much suffering during her tenure as a magical girl. Because of this, she does not want Madoka to become a magical girl and tries to do anything in order to stop her from making a wish with [[Kyubey]], going as far as to attempting to injure the cat-like creature. Despite her cold attitude towards others, she still very much cares for Madoka as it is her sole objective to protect her due to the countless amount blood, sweat, and tears she has shed over her jumps in time.<br />
<br />
In the original timeline where her journey began, however, Homura is portrayed as meek, shy, timid, clumsy and is known around the school for her lack of confidence. She was also known for her physical incapability of performing in P.E. class; she would get dizzy upon doing even the simplest of warm-up exercises. This had the unfortunate result of her being a target of bullying, as heard on [[Drama CD 1]]. Overwhelmed by her perceived uselessness, she begins questioning her existence and until she begins her fated friendship with Madoka, her feelings do not change. Madoka, alongside [[Mami Tomoe]], shows her the ropes and dangers of becoming a magical girl and notes that Madoka's own attitude became much healthier with every witch battle. In an ironic twist, in the anime timeline we see how frail and meek Madoka is, compared to the current Homura whose personality had performed a complete 180-degree turn due to her experiences in multiple timelines.<br />
<br />
Despite being regarded as emotionless by [[Sayaka Miki]], Homura is far from it. Although she does not easily show signs of remorse, sadness, or pity, it is only because she had grown used to the suffering around her. Her cold nature is from her determination to save Madoka after having failed in her mission to prevent Madoka from becoming a magical girl countless times. Homura herself has stated that she always feels badly with each life she unable to save or alter, but nevertheless, it does not slow her down from staying true to her main objective in saving Madoka.<br />
<br />
* '''Character development:''' Prior to the events of episode 1 (or timeline), from the very beginning Homura considered herself to be useless, and worthless. She didn't think people would miss her if she were to die or disappear. But Madoka was probably the first person to see Homura differently, for the good person that she was and opened her eyes that changed her way thinking about herself. With each timeline, we start to see a transformation not only in Homura but with Madoka as well, where there is a role reversal. It is now Madoka who believes she is powerless and worthless, someone who can't even do anything to save her friends, and it is Homura who believes that Madoka is too kind and reckless for trying to do to much for others. Unfortunately, over the course of looping time, Homura becomes colder and callous and her intentions to save Madoka shift solely into "Madoka's survival", causing Homura to become crueler towards her and others as a means of "protection". See also the paragraph about Homura showing emotionally abusive traits below. She seems to have grown past this by the finale, but it's ambiguous to whether or not Homura accepted or repressed her feelings. Either way, Homura is still heavily dependent on Madoka for self-validation, a trait which rears its ugly head during ''Rebellion''.<br />
<br />
==History==<br />
===Background===<br />
Homura's backstory was revealed in [[episode 10]]. She was a transfer student who was hospitalized for a long period of time due to heart disease. The whereabouts and status of her family is unknown, as they are never mentioned in the series. In the original timeline, Homura at this point is physically frail and weak most likely due to her illness. She wears glasses and braided hair in her early insecure depiction shown in episode 10. Later in that episode with renewed determination she undoes her braids and uses her soul gem to correct her vision and to heal her heart condition. From then on she no longer required the use of glasses.<br />
<br />
===Homura in the [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica|Anime]]===<br />
[[File:Timeline Chart.png|thumb|200px|The sequences of events in each timeline.]]<br />
====The original universe====<br />
Homura's time-loop officially starts on the [http://31.media.tumblr.com/37ba5111020188f08ea2a4c30d23dd9d/tumblr_n2ioz9qOj31qf874go1_1280.png 16th of the month in the anime] ([[Timeline|speculated to be sometime between March and April]]). She was released from the hospital on the 16th, and transferred to Mitakihara Middle School on the 25th. In the original timeline, she is attacked by a witch and saved by Madoka and Mami. Sometime during the next month, during [[Walpurgisnacht]], she becomes a magical girl while wishing to redo her meeting with Madoka, thus gaining the power to pause and/or rewind time one month.<br />
<br />
It is estimated Homura repeated the same month starting on the 16th nearly 100 times before the present timeline in the TV anime. Within these timelines, Homura was able to gradually improve her abilities and acquire items (such as ammunition and weapons from the Japanese military) to prepare for the battle with Walpurgisnacht. She was also able to memorize and deduce through statistics the major events that would occur within all timelines, giving her incredible knowledge about most of her adversaries. The corollary, however, was that Homura experienced the deaths of many of her friends repeatedly, often horrifically. As a general trend, Homura became increasingly distant to Madoka with each repeat of the month.<br />
<br />
By the timeline of the TV anime, Homura appeared as a cold and calculating character who is distant from all the characters. She failed to save all of her companions (apart from Madoka), and by Walpurgisnacht, was forced to face the witch alone. She was subsequently defeated by Walpurgisnacht, and seemed just about to succumb to despair before Madoka appears and rewrites the universe with her wish.<br />
<br />
====By the Anime's Finale====<br />
After Madoka's revision of the universe, Homura is the only known character to retain her memories of the previous universe. She has possession of Madoka's ribbon, and has a new black bow as her weapon similar to Madoka's weapon. It is unknown if she retained her abilities to manipulate time and space. Homura is shown to have a much closer relationship with Kyuubey, so much so she even confides an entire account about how the old universe worked. She also has the ability to create wings of energy, forming angelic wings when confronting Wraiths in the city, and jagged dark wings when walking through the desert.<br />

|style="padding:10px; background:#fff;"|<br />
Homura appears in the first pages of chapter 1 in flashback. She is shown saying her goodbyes to Madoka as in the last episode of the anime, with Madoka promising to meet her again and giving Homura her ribbons. She doesn't appear again until the end of chapter 2 after Sayaka has been led away by the Law of Cycles and Mami and Kyoko are standing at the station. Homura is introduced as the new transfer student and she leaves the class in order to meet with Mami and Kyoko on the rooftop, Homura wiping away a tear as she remembers meeting Madoka for the first time. They tell Homura about the giant wraith that has been seen lately and agree not to hunt it on their own. <br />
After several days of combing the city for the giant wraith and hunting down other more common wraiths, Homura has a short discussion with Kyubey about Madoka and the previous universe. Soon after, she encounters the giant wraith alone and attempts to defeat it herself by unleashing a large arrow of magic at it which takes on the form of a bird. However the giant wraith withstands the attack and is able to surprise Homura and overwhelm her, stealing a portion of her power. A smaller wraith steals Madoka's ribbon from her as well. <br />
<br />
After a nightmare, Homura wakes up in Mami's apartment, with Mami bringing her a tray of tea and many lecturing words. She asks Homura to transform into a magical girl, which she does successfully, and then to summon her weapon, which she cannot. Mami concludes that the wraiths stole a portion of Homura's power but has no idea on how to retrieve it. Homura is impatient to go and retrieve her powers, but Mami cautions her to play it safe and leave everything up to her and Kyoko. Homura alters her memories slightly before thanking Mami and leaving. In the city, Homura talks with Kyubey about the memory-manipulation magic she now has and her lack of time-stopping ability. She takes off to search the city when Kyoko runs into Homura while patrolling the streets. She assures Homura she won't tell Mami she saw her up and about knowing Mami would only lecture her further. When asked why she remains in the city despite Sayaka having disappeared, Kyoko responds she is still here to avenge Sayaka. Kyoko agrees to help Homura in finding and defeating the wraith provided she is the one to give the final blow. <br />
<br />
Despite using grief cubes, Homura finds her magical power has yet to recover which Kyubey explains is due to her soul gem's lack of capacity after the wraiths stole some of her power. As Homura sits in the park at night, Kyoko walks up to her telling her she's found a clue about the wraiths. Before Homura can come closer, Mami appears and fires at Kyoko, revealing her to be another mutant wraith that had taken on the form of Kyoko with the intent of attacking Homura. Mami summons several muskets and together her and Homura are able to hold off the wraiths but not for long. During the fight, Homura realizes the wraith is using time-manipulation magic. After a voice gives Homura advice, the two magical girls are able to overcome the wraiths' time-stopping ability and seemingly defeat the Wraith-Kyoko with Mami's Tiro Finale. After, the real Kyoko appears and informs them of the fake Sayaka and they agree on rules in order to limit their ability to be taken by surprise by the mutant wraiths. Mami and Kyoko leave, leaving Homura alone. She hears the voice from earlier once more and turns to see Madoka standing before her. However, this is not the real Madoka but a wraith who has taken on her form. She returns Madoka's ribbon to Homura before asking for her help in stopping the giant wraith. The fake Madoka explains how wraiths really work before explaining that the magic they took from Homura corrupted the wraiths, resulting in the mutant wraiths that take on human form. Despite Homura's reluctance in believing her story, she has the wraith follow her back to her apartment. There, Kyubey examines the wraith and confirms it carries a part of Homura's power in her. <br />
<br />
After several weeks of searching for the giant wraith, Homura and Wraith-Madoka are no closer to finding the whereabouts of the giant wraith. Wraith-Madoka asks Homura what she really thinks of her since she is taking the form of her most precious friend. Homura snaps at the wraith, telling her she is nothing more than a fake for which Homura holds no shred of emotion for and threatens to kill her for insulting Madoka's wish. But the wraith tells her she is lying to herself and that she is not only a wraith but also Homura's heart. <br />
<br />
Mami and Kyoko decide to begin their search from the beginning. Mami is upset to find that Homura had been searching for the giant wraith alone and worries that something may happen to her. Homura snaps at both Mami and Kyoko before taking off. Alone, Homura asks Kyubey what she wished for in order to become a magical girl but Kyubey doesn't know the answer to that. Homura worries that she may have used her memory-altering magic on herself in order to turn her dream of Madoka into memories instead. Wraith-Madoka catches up with Homura and offers to walk her home but not before Mami and Kyoko run into them. However, to Mami and Kyoko the wraith looks nothing like Madoka and only has the form of a mutant wraith wrapped around Homura. They transform into magical girls and prepare to rescue Homura, but Homura instead begs the wraith to save her from being a magical girl. The wraith takes Homura's soul gem and teleports them from the area, leaving Mami and Kyoko behind.<br />
<br />
At Homura's apartment, Homura and Wraith-Madoka sit in front of her many monitors and watch as a flashback plays out in which Homura makes her original wish to Kyubey to protect Madoka. Kyubey appears only to admonish Homura for having a wraith eat all of her emotions in order to avoid meeting the Law of Cycles. Outside, the wraiths begin their attack on the city, leaving people dead rather than simply emotionless. As Mami and Kyoko fight their respective battles, Wraith-Madoka and Homura watch from a nearby rooftop. Before the wraiths can bring the final blow to Mami, Wraith-Madoka takes the ribbon from Homura and unleashes several arrows from the air in Madoka's characteristic attack, protecting Mami. The wraith appears as Madoka to even Mami now that she has her ribbon. Together the wraith and Mami are able to work together to take down the two imposters.<br />
<br />
By this time the giant wraith has been consumed by the power it took from Homura and transforms into a witch-like creature complete with familiars. The wraith and Mami fight off the familiars but not before Kyoko and Mami are killed by the giant wraith. Wraith-Madoka continues in her struggle to defeat the witch-like wraith alone, but is overwhelmed and soon plummets to her death. Homura watches the battle dispassionately until she suddenly recovers herself and runs to catch the falling wraith. She realizes that Madoka is not a dream as the witch that stands before her is the proof that Madoka existed. <br />
<br />
Homura regains her original memories. Upon arriving to the new universe, she discovered that her time-manipulation shield no longer worked and she initially discarded it only to have the shield open a small portal to another world. Homura jumps into the world inside her shield and discovers Kriemhild Gretchen inside. Before she can destroy the shield, she realizes that if a witch is inside her shield then Madoka may also be inside fighting the witch. Instead, Homura used her magic to alter her own memories and causes herself to forget the existence of the time shield. <br />
<br />
After Homura and Wraith-Madoka land on the streets below, Homura reaches for the ribbon the wraith is holding and finds herself transported to another world. Her appearance changes to her original appearance with glasses and braids. There, she meets a doppelganger of herself who introduces itself as the personification of Homura's power that was stolen by the wraiths. It explains they are inside the world of her soul gem and that it was freed when the wraith that housed it was destroyed. After being stolen by the wraiths, her magical power was able to take control of one of the mutant wraiths in order to assist Homura. Homura asks her magical power what caused the wraiths to go rogue and her magic explains that it was due to the time manipulation magic coming from another universe with different laws. When Madoka and Homura parted ways in the space outside of the universe, their feelings for each other were so strong that a true miracle occurred and their feelings crystallized into a new soul gem for Homura. Because a miracle was granted to a magical girl without a normal exchange, it became separate from the laws of the universe and was considered in incomplete magic. After some time, this new magic began to interfere with her original magic, causing her shield and Madoka to suddenly link up. After Homura erased her memories of the shield, the wraiths stole the shield and were consumed by the curses that were contained within. Because the curses were a form of emotional energy not known in this universe, it corrupted the wraiths and caused the giant wraith to become a witch destined to destroy the world. Homura's thoughts take on the form of Sayaka, Kyoko and Mami who voice her self doubts in having rewritten her own memories rather than lose the shield and her proof of Madoka's existence. Homura takes off her glasses and undoes her braids, filled with a new resolve to protect Madoka even at the cost of her shield. She asks her magic to lend her power once more and her magic power takes on the form of her soul gem. <br />
<br />
Filled with power once more, Homura unleashes several hundred arrows that destroy the smaller wraiths and familiars before firing a single large arrow at the witch. As she drives the arrow further in, the witch cracks open and reveals the face of Kriemhild Gretchen and her shield inside. As Homura reaches for her shield, the witch uses its power to stab Homura through several times in an attempt to stop her. But Madoka appears before Homura and helps push her the last few inches towards the shield. As Homura touches the shield, it crumbles to pieces and the witch is obliterated. Back inside her soul gem, her magical power incarnate holds a sleeping Homura in her hands as she explains that Madoka has reset the timeline of this universe in order to prevent the curses of the previous world from interfering. Unlike last time however, Homura will lose her memories of the previous timeline. <br />
<br />
Homura snaps to alertness as she realizes she is standing at the station with Mami and Kyoko, Sayaka having just been led away by the Law of Cycles. Some time later, Homura is having the same discussion with Kyubey concerning Madoka and the previous universe. As Homura drops down to destroy the wraiths in the streets below, Kyubey reveals a piece of Homura's shield it managed to salvage and explains how he kept his memories of the previous timeline. Now that he has a piece of the shield and proof of Homura's story concerning the Law of Cycles, he and the other Incubators can now plan for a way in which they can capture Madoka. <br />
<br />
The chapter ends as Homura is walking in the desert, ready to take on a hoard of wraiths as several Incubators watch from atop some nearby ruins. <br />

<blockquote>''"Without a doubt, this place is a witch's barrier."''</blockquote><br />
In events prior to ''[[The Rebellion Story]]'' Homura was captured by the [[Kyuubey|Incubators]], and her Soul Gem was placed in an Isolation Field that blocked out the Law of Cycles. This strain led Homura to transform partially into a witch without her knowledge. In this form, she also unconsciously created a labyrinth that was a near-perfect replica of Mitakihara City, and unconsciously lured her former acquaintances into it. She even drew in Madoka from the Law of Cycles, who entered the barrier along with Sayaka and [[Nagisa Momoe]]. In this dream world, Homura unconsciously distorted almost everyone's memories (including her own) so that they believed they were living in the real world fighting new enemies called [[Nightmare]]s. In order to stop the Incubators from fulfilling their goal, Madoka entrusted her memories and powers to Sayaka and Nagisa. Sayaka only pretended to have her memories altered, while Nagisa disguised herself as [[Charlotte]]/[[Bebe]].<br />
<br />
Eventually Homura realizes that she's trapped in a witch's barrier and attempts to discover who is behind it. Near the end of her journey she has a conversation with Madoka that causes her to realize that she can't accept Madoka's sacrifice. At this point she begins to realize she is the witch, and confirms it when she separates herself from her Soul Gem without consequence.<br />
<br />
At this point Kyubey appears and explains the truth about Homura's present nature and the Incubators' plan to control the Law of Cycles. This causes Homura to go berserk and curse her existence, completing her transformation into a witch known as [[Homulilly]]. Madoka and the other magical girls manage to rescue Homura by destroying the stasis field containing them all, returning them to reality. Due to the Isolation Field, Homura only became a witch inside her own Soul Gem, allowing Madoka to save her.<br />
<br />
Ultimate Madoka arrives to take Homura away as per the Law of the Cycle. However, Homura grabs Madoka first. Her Soul Gem turns black, then fills with swirling colors that Nagisa calls worse than curses. Reality begins to crack as Homura separates Madoka from her goddess self. The colors burst out of her Soul Gem, and both the cracks and colors engulf the entire universe.<br />
<br />
Homura and Kyubey reappear in the same place where Madoka ascended in [[Episode 12]]. Homura shatters her Soul Gem in her mouth, and a new gem appears called the Dark Orb. Kyubey exclaims that Homura is rewriting the universe, and asks what happened to her Soul Gem. Homura explains that she remembered all of the times she repeated time, and all of the pain she suffered for Madoka's sake. She says that even this pain has become precious to her, tainting her Soul Gem with something greater than curses. As she swallows the Dark Orb, she calls it the pinnacle of human emotions: Love.<br />
<br />
Homura transforms into a new form and grows a pair of black wings. Kyubey says that Homura is no longer a magical girl or a witch, and asks what Homura is now. Homura that since she brought down and imprisoned god, it's only appropriate to call her a demon (''akuma''). Kyubey decides that it was a mistake to experiment with human emotions and flees, but Homura grabs him and says she still needs his existence to deal with all the curses of the world.<br />

<blockquote>''"As I am now, I'm not a witch anymore. Something that could bring down a god and imprison her...I suppose you could only call such a being a demon."''</blockquote><br />
Homura effectively becomes a goddess of this new universe. Apart from her true nature as a demon, she still exists with a human form in the real world and can interact normally with everyone else. She appears to have the power to manipulate the memories of virtually anyone she pleases, but otherwise the full extent of her abilities are unknown. It is assumed that Homura is a deity that primarily embodies love (whereas Madoka embodies hope). <br />
<br />
Homura is presently holding a fraction of the Goddess Madoka captive--specifically, the part that was Madoka Kaname before she became the Law of Cycles. It is also implied she is placing the world's curses onto Kyubey. Despite proclaiming herself as a demon, Madoka, Sayaka, Kyoko, Mami, and Nagisa are all given happy lives in her new world.<br />

* Homura's role in the manga follows the anime exactly up until the final chapter. <br />
* Instead of wandering through a desert towards a group of wraiths, the epilogue of the manga Homura is shown being saved by Madokami, who tells her they always have and always will be friends before they walk away together.<br />

===Homura in [[Puella Magi Oriko Magica|Oriko Magica]]===<br />
<blockquote>''"Madoka... don't ever tell me not to save you. I'm not all-powerful. I am not able to save everyone. But... even so, I want to save you. So, don't say that anymore!"'' - Homura, [[Oriko_Magica#Chapter_5:_That.27s_what_I.27m_here_for|Puella Magi Oriko Magica, Chapter 5]].</blockquote><br />
*Homura first appears in Chapter 3. When [[Mami]] warns her about the magical girl murders, [[Homura]] seems not to care, but warns Mami not to get close to her, Madoka, [[Hitomi]] and [[Sayaka]].<br />
*In chapter 4, she appears for one page with her friends, going out for sweets. She defers to Madoka's taste and doesn't care where they go. She protected Madoka well to this point, keeping the knowledge of magical girls far away from her and Sayaka.<br />
*In chapters 5-7, as Mitakihara Junior High is covered with a witch's barrier, Homura does her best to protect Madoka from the familiars. After Madoka told her not to sacrifice others to protect her, however, Homura decided to find [[Oriko]] and [[Kirika]] and defeat them. Oriko reveals that {{spoiler|she knows about the end of the world caused by Kriemheld Gretchen, Madoka's witch form, and that she plans to kill Madoka before she can contract and cause that to happen.}} Homura fights together with Mami, [[Kyoko]] and [[Yuma]], coming close to losing when two of the other three fall into despair after {{spoiler|seeing Kirika become a witch. They manage to pull themselves together and defeat her, and Homura kills Oriko. But since Oriko also killed Madoka by using the last of her power to shoot a piece of Kirika's witch body through Madoka's torso, Homura can do nothing but reset the timeline.}}<br />
<br />
===Homura in [[Magia Record]]===<br />
See [[Homura Akemi in Magia Record]]<br />
<br />
==Powers and Abilities==<br />
* In episode 9, it was revealed that Homura can stop time. However, anyone she touches while the ability is under effect will not be stopped. Along with stopping time, Homura can also reverse time to before her meeting with Madoka.<br />
**According to an interview in Otona Anime Vol. 20, translated by symbv, here is what Gen Urobuchi said on more of Homura's power: "The weapon that looks like Homura's shield is actually a sand timer. When the flow of the sand is blocked, time is stopped. And when there is no sand on the upper part of the sand timer and then the timer is reverted, one month's worth of time is turned back. But before that stage is reached, only time stopping is possible. This means the special power of Homura is the ability to manipulate one month's time's worth of sand in the sand timer. As for the time passed and then turned back, since it was not the focus in this work I did not think it through very thoroughly. I think you can say that the world split up and became parallel worlds there." In episode 11, we see Homura's sand run out in the middle of her fight with Walpurgisnacht, verifying this limitation of her time stop powers.<br />
**[[NewType_2011-05#Homura.27s_shield|Gen Urobuchi stated that he didn't really think too much about the mechanics of Homura's time loops]], so the nature of Homura's power is not only a mystery, but it is not fully understood not even by the creative source.<br />
* Homura's shield is able to store a countless amount of weapons, as demonstrated by the many pistols, light machineguns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and boxes of ammunition packed inside it. Note that her shield is relatively small and she is able to wear it around her wrist, much like a watch.<br />
<br />
'''Wraith Arc'''<br /><br />
After Madoka resets the universe, their feelings for each other crystallized into Homura's new soul gem and Homura was granted a new wish. Homura now has the ability to alter people's memories and owing to her new abilities Homura's weapon is instead a black bow similiar to Madoka's. Her shield is no longer able to reset time, however when wraiths stole Homura's power they were shown with the ability to stop time. When Homura uses her black bow to fire arrows, she summons the same magic symbol Madoka does, however her symbol has diamond shapes rather than circles. She has been shown transforming her arrows into birdlike forms and combining them into a crossbow-like form for added power. Homura also has the ability to create wings of energy, shown forming angelic wings when confronting Wraiths in the city and jagged dark wings when walking through the desert.<br />
<br />
==Observations==<br />
* She appears to live by herself; her [[Homura Residence|residence]] only has her name on the nameplate, much like [[Mami]]'s. In episode 10, when she wakes up in the hospital, no-one is there with her, and she seems to have been filling out the school transfer forms on her own.<br />
* Her [[Homura_Residence|house]] has a wall display of documents relating to witches.<br />
* She is visibly upset when Madoka uses her last name or honorifics instead of the more intimate "Homura".<br />
* Homura calls everyone by their full name, giving the impression of being distant to people. This is most likely an attempt of her part to distance herself emotionally with everyone.<br />
** In [[episode 10]], Homura goes from formal to first name basis with Madoka.<br />
** In [[episode 9]] when Kyoko sacrifices herself to save Sayaka, Homura calls her by her first name.<br />
** The way she calls Sayaka varies on timelines. And she always refers to Mami as by her full name or Tomoe-san, probably because she is her senior. <br />
* Homura's appearance in episode 12 (in the new timeline) from the manga is different than her appearance from the anime. In the anime, her clothes and hairstyle remain the same, with Madoka's ribbon as her accessories. However, in the manga, she wears a new dress, changes her hairstyle to two pigtails with the ribbons Madoka gave her.<br />
* Some viewers that noticed that Homura shows several traits of emotional abuse towards Madoka throughout the series. She intimidates Madoka, with Madoka often looking uncomfortable or fearful around her (multiple times, notably once in episode 1), belittles her by calling her a fool or idiot at various points (and telling her she "won't hold back against a fool" at one point in episode 6) and doesn't treat her as an equal, tells her not to ever change herself (episode 1) and to give up on or forget about her friends (episodes 5 and 7 regarding Sayaka), controls her decisions regardless of Madoka's wants or feelings, and especially without her explicit consent (several points in the anime, ''Rebellion''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s ending), follows or stalks her repeatedly (''Madoka Magica'', ''The Different Story'' &mdash; notice how she is almost always in time to stop Madoka making a contract or to save her from harm), has shown to be capable of doing extreme things in the name of Madoka's sake (attempting to kill Sayaka in episode 8), is capable of throwing other's lives away for Madoka's sake (again, Sayaka; ''[[Oriko Magica]]'' has a scene where Madoka acknowledges this), constantly withholds highly important information from Madoka (such as important info regarding magical girls, Kyubey, or Sayaka's situation), and tries to drive others away from Madoka/Madoka away from others if she perceives them as a threat to her safety (Mami and Sayaka). As well as this, in ''Rebellion'', as [http://sir-argues-a-lot.tumblr.com/post/120208656402/what-about-in-rebellion-thats-the-main-example-a this] tumblr post points out: Homura alters Madoka's memories and takes away her powers, places herself in a position of influence over Madoka by making Madoka into her shyer pre-series self (who may in fact be even [http://lynx-you-fucking-nerd.tumblr.com/post/122473500711/whoneedsamap-lynx-you-fucking-nerd-madoka shyer] than that) and into a new transfer student, and appears to even sever all her previous friendships, especially from Sayaka, who was previously Madoka's childhood and best friend.<br />
** Homura also shows many traits of a textbook psychopath, as explained in detail [http://villaininglasses.tumblr.com/post/99305261455/matsurisunrise-lustfuldemoness here]. Much of the analysis also overlaps with the emotional abuse analysis above.<br />
*Homura may actually be Faust, as Faust in the play tries all his might to save Gretchen (Madoka) from dying but in the end she perishes anyways as Mephistopheles (QB) tries to tempt her to form a contract with him.<br />
** There's also the fact that in the Goethe version, Faust would only lose his soul if he ever had a moment of perfect happiness that made him wish he could stop time at that moment forever. Homura's power, of course, is to stop time. As such, it's entirely possible that the Homura and Faust parallels will be taken to its logical conclusion: She will have a moment of perfect happiness, she will stop time at that moment, and then she will die or become a witch. However, it should be mentioned that Faust manages to escape Mephistopheles and enter heaven because he found his moment of happiness in helping others, and not in anything Mephistopheles gave him. On the other hand, there is a [[Kriemhild Gretchen|witch that tries to create heaven on Earth.]]<br />
** In the story of Faust, the devil grants him "magical powers" for 24 years, "one year for each hour of the day," and the deal was at the end of the "24 years," the devil would claim his soul. Homura's "weapon" is an hourglass, and her hourglass can reset time by one month. Given the strong parallels to Faust, and how at the end of the last loop, Homura was about to lose her soul (by giving in to Kyuubey's master plan and her Soul Gem becoming corrupted), it is entirely probable that her loop lasted for a total of 24 months/loop attempts as a reasonable conservative estimate, and the full Faustian 24 years as a more gruesome estimate. Given how radically her personality has changed since the first loop attempt, and how she seems to have memorized most of the key events of the loop, 24 months seems like a plausible number. <br />
* The reason why Homura can't prevent Madoka from being a magical girl may be interpreted that it is Madoka becoming a magical girl that makes Homura become magical girl. If Homura really did, there will be a paradox. But effect can't change the cause. Therefore, no matter how many times she tries, she is destined to fail. <br />
** Another evidence may support this idea. In the end of episode 12, Homura is still a magic girl and she knows the existence of Madoka. It is because Homura became a magic girl and her trying hundreds of times to save Madoka that gives Madoka the ability to become Madokami. Even Madokami can't change what she is based on to exist. The effect can't change the cause.<br />
*In Rebellion, {{spoiler|before Homura transforms into Akuma Homura, she smashes her Soul Gem between her teeth, like a nutcracker. Given this, it seems likely she is still the Nutcracker Witch despite Madoka's intervention}}<br />
**This idea seems further supported by Kyubey's referring to her as {{spoiler|"neither a Magical Girl, nor a Witch". As it is likely she is now both, since she contains features both of them have, like a human appearance, a Soul Gem, familiars, and a barrier.}}<br />
<br />
==Etymology==<br />
* Her first name is written in hiragana, which has no special meaning. However, when written in kanji, it can mean:<br />
** flame, blaze (炎 or 焔)<br />
** heart on fire (心火)<br />
* Though only 焔, 炎, and 心火 are actually Japanese given names.<br />
* The official [[Licensing in Taiwan|Chinese translation]] uses (焔) "flame, blaze" as the characters for her first name. However, no official kanji of her name exists in the original Japanese version. Madoka says at one point to Homura that she should act badass to match it and Sayaka even uses a firehose on her in {{spoiler|a timeline}}. In ''Rebellion'', there are many scenes of fire and {{spoiler|parallels are made between her and the name of Lucifer, since both are references to fire.}} It can also refer to how assumed witches were burned at the stake.<br />
* The first character for Akemi (暁) means "daybreak", while the second one (美) means beauty which is a common letter in girl's names.<br />
** In an early production sketch, her surname was given as (暁海) "daybreak sea" instead of (暁美). Both are read as Akemi.<br />
** Her last name can also be used as a first name.<br />
* When her full name is written vertically in hiragana (あけみほむら) and covering the left half at a certain angle, it could be read as カナメまどか which is Kaname written in katakana and Madoka written in hiragana.<br />
<br />
==Trivia==<br />
*At a [[Nitro+ Q&A Panels at Animagic 2013|Nitro+ Q&A Panel]] it was revealed that Homura went through almost 100 timelines. <i><b>Q:</b> How many timelines did Homura go through? <b>A:</b> Approaching 100.</i><br />
** If Homura really did loop the same month and a half nearly 100 times, she would technically be around 26-years old, having spent 12 years looping time. (Calculations [http://homura.tumblr.com/post/57010494639/when-asked-how-many-timelines-did-homura-go here].) However, since her body is always reset along with time, she is still only 14-years old physically. This makes Homura about twelve years older mentally than Madoka.<br />
* Homura finds a manual on how to make bombs from the internet. According with the [http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%85%B9%E8%85%B9%E6%99%82%E8%A8%88#.E5.89.B5.E4.BD.9C.E7.89.A9.E3.81.B8.E3.81.AE.E7.99.BB.E5.A0.B4 Japanese Wikipedia] the manual is titled {{Nihongo|'''Hara Hara Tokei'''|腹腹時計|[[wikipedia:Hara_Hara_Tokei|Hara Hara Tokei]]}}, published in March 1974 by a [[wikipedia:East_Asia_Anti-Japan_Armed_Front|far-left terrorist organization]].<br />
** Incidentally, the manual explains with illustrations that ''“Anyone with a middle-school level knowledge of chemistry can do it”''.<br />
* Homura is frequently referred to as "Homerun-chan" amongst Western fans, due to the similarity of the two names in Japanese, however she is frequently referred as "Homuhomu" (ほむほむ) within Japanese community. Homuhomu likely originated from the [[Runes:Episode_3|runes in Episode 3]], one of which translates to "Homuhomu". Interestingly, when a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_run homerun] is enacted in sports, you (in addition to gaining a point/level) {{spoiler|essentially get back where you started}}.<br />
** "Homuhomu" can be used as a verb as "do Homuhomu" (ほむほむする) which means to caress, console or take care of. The action of "do Homuhomu" is not defined exactly.<br />
** Originally started by the fan community it has been embraced and adopted by the industry to become [[Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_Portable#Interview_with_the_PSP_Game_producers|part of the official language and usage.]]<br />
** Sometimes also jokingly refered to as "Homurika" due to {{spoiler|shared similarity of circumstances (having to go through many timelines to prevent a tragedy) with Rika Furude (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)}}.<br />
* Some folks in 2ch nicknamed [[Homura Residence|Homura's Residence]] {{nihongo|Homu-home|ほむホーム|Homuhōmu}} since Homu is a nickname for Homura, and Hōmu is "home" rendered in the Japanese syllabary. It should be noted that "homu" is more often used for dog houses and similar structures, with the English word "home" expressed using "uchi" (うち, which refers to one's own house or household), "ie" (いえ, which can refer to a physical house or a family lineage), or the honorific "otaku" (お宅, which refers to someone else's house or household).<br />
* Apparently there is a [http://extrovertedotaku.blogspot.com/2011/04/akemi-homuras-weapon-gallery.html rumor on the net] that some weapons went "missing" at the [[wikipedia:Japan_Self-Defense_Forces|JSDF]] and [[wikipedia:United_States_Forces_Japan|US military bases in Japan]]. There is only one [http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%8E%96%E7%8F%A0%E9%A7%90%E5%B1%AF%E5%9C%B0%E6%AD%A6%E5%99%A8%E4%BA%A1%E5%A4%B1%E4%BA%8B%E4%BB%B6 official report] regarding the missing/stolen weapons. It is not known if the rumors of the <s>stolen</s> missing weapons inspired their appearance in the series. Nor is there any evidence indicating that the perpetrator was a time traveling magical girl.<br />
* In the [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica Official Guidebook "You Are Not Alone"]] Hanokage jokingly describes Homura as "Hommando" in her After-Recording Report comic, because of the excessive vast arsenal of weaponry she unleashes in [[Episode 11]]. Apparently the smörgåsbord of weaponry was added later, they were not originally depicted in the early stages of the screenplay.<br />
** One fan estimates that Homura used ¥ 1,383,040,300 Yen worth of military weaponry & equipment (that's $17,037,114 USD in today's dollars).[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE4b5yPG5qg&feature=player_embedded]<br />
* Homura is the strongest of the magical girls as long as [[Nitro+ Q&A Panels at Animagic 2013|no one discovers the nature of her power.]]<br />
* In Audio commentary for [[Episode 4]], Urobuchi liked Chiwa Saitou for the role because she had a "Dark Beauty" feeling.<br />
** In the Audio commentary for [[Episode 7]], Chiwa Saitou explains she tried the role of Kyubey and Kyousuke first, until Gen Urobuchi convinced her to try the role of Homura.<br />
** Chiwa Saito explains that she found the character of Homura to be strong but also to be a weak/delicate girl. Aoi Yuuki adds that the Homura character had no other choice but to become strong.<br />
*** Ryouko Shintani states that would be true for a character that has something or someone important to protect.<br />

<div>Just a little theory.<br />
Her minion's name is Ulla.<br />
That name could came from Ursula,that means "little she-bear".<br />
So,can she be the Puella Magi with the bear hat from Episode Twelve?<br />

==Card Art==<br />
Where did the full art of Suleika come from? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the wiki. --[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 08:15, 6 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:No idea. TBH it looks like someone took the production note and textured it like the familiar. Isn't this what happened with the card for [[Uhrmann]] until recently when it showed up in Magireco? It was a colored production note or something...[[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 06:00, 7 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
::Uhrmann's previous card I know for sure was using production note art, but Suleika's here looks nothing like their art from the production note to me. I'm getting the feeling I've seen this somewhere else before, and if it turns out to be from fan art or something we probably shouldn't be using it for the card (I mean, I know the cards I'm making here are unofficial and fan made, but I'm using official art to create a mock up so...) --[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 07:59, 8 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
[[File:Suleika art.png|thumb|500px|left]]<br />
<br />
As far as I can tell, the image is probably "fan art" in so far as they flipped the production image and then made it look like it's familiar with all the black and white. [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 05:52, 10 May 2019 (UTC)<br />

It's official, actually, and where we got the original card designs from: <br />

Her minion's name is Ulla.<br />
That name could came from Ursula,that means "little she-bear".<br />
So,can she be the Puella Magi with the bear hat from Episode Twelve?<br />

==Card Art==<br />
Where did the full art of Suleika come from? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the wiki. --[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 08:15, 6 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
:No idea. TBH it looks like someone took the production note and textured it like the familiar. Isn't this what happened with the card for [[Uhrmann]] until recently when it showed up in Magireco? It was a colored production note or something...[[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 06:00, 7 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
::Uhrmann's previous card I know for sure was using production note art, but Suleika's here looks nothing like their art from the production note to me. I'm getting the feeling I've seen this somewhere else before, and if it turns out to be from fan art or something we probably shouldn't be using it for the card (I mean, I know the cards I'm making here are unofficial and fan made, but I'm using official art to create a mock up so...) --[[User:The Witch&#39;s House|The Witch&#39;s House]] ([[User talk:The Witch&#39;s House|talk]]) 07:59, 8 May 2019 (UTC)<br />
<br />
[[File:Suleika art.png|thumb|500px|left]]<br />
<br />
As far as I can tell, the image is probably "fan art" in so far as they flipped the production image and then made it look like it's familiar with all the black and white. [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 05:52, 10 May 2019 (UTC)<br />

<div>[[File:Homura using statistics.jpg|thumb|[[Homura]] said that she uses applied statistics in witch hunts]]<br />
The cast of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica are students of [[Mitakihara Middle School]]. Even though it is merely a middle school, coursework in Mitakihara can be quite challenging. The following are Math problems that have appeared thus far in the show, and their solutions:<br />
<br />
==Episode 1==<br />
[[file:Episode One Algebra.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 1]]<br />
<br />
===Question 1===<br />
Any integer divided by 14 will have a remainder between 0 and 13. Given that a has a remainder of 6 and b has a remainder of 1 when divided by 14, what is the remainder of x when divided by 14, given x is an integer solution to <math>x^2-2ax+b=0</math>?<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
This problem can be solved simply with [[wikipedia:Modular arithmetic|modular arithmetic]]:<br />
<br />
*<math>a \equiv 6 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>b \equiv 1 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>x \equiv r \pmod{14}</math>.<br />
<br />
*<math>\displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0}</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
*<math>(x^2 - 12x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14}</math><br />
<br />
*<math>x^2 + 2x + 1 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because <math>-12 \equiv 2 \pmod{14}</math>)<br />
<br />
*<math>(x + 1)^2 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> (x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because 14 is square-free)<br />
<br />
*<math> x \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math> (because <math> -1 \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math>).<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution:'''<br />
<br />
Homura used in Episode 1 a basic approach with usual integer [[wikipedia:arithmetic|arithmetic]].<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{x = 14q + r, a = 14s + 6, b = 14t + 1} </math>.<br />
<br />
Substitute into <math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0} </math> to get after some calculations<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 14c + (r+1)^2 = 0} \mbox{ with } \displaystyle{c = 14q^2 + 2q - 28qs - 2rs - 12q + t - r}</math><br />
<br />
14 divides 14c and 0, hence it also divides <math>(r+1)^2</math>. This implies that <math>r+1</math> is divisible by 14.<br />
<br />
The question asks for a remainder r between 0 and 13, so we obtain r = 13.<br />
<br />

<br />
===Question 2===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q2.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 2]]<br />
Assuming that p is a prime number and n is an arbitrary natural number, prove that <math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \,</math> is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
By [[wikipedia:Fermat's Little Theorem|Fermat's Little Theorem]], for any prime p and integer a,<br />
<br />
<math> a^p \equiv a \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
Thus:<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n) - n - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>0 \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
So the overall expression is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
<br />
'''Second solution:'''<br />
<br />
The problem can be solved with the [[wikipedia:binomial theorem|binomial theorem]]:<br />
<br />
For a, b not equal to 0 and nonnegative integer p it holds that:<br />
<br />
<!--(a + b)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) a^(p-k) b^k-->[[file:Q2 binomial theorem.png]]<br />
<br />
where the binomial coefficient <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is the integer <!-- p(p-1)...(p-k+1)/(k(k-1)...1) --> [[file:Q2 binomial coefficient.png]] for 0 ≤ k ≤ p.<br />
<br />
Therefore,<br />
<br />
<!--(1 + n)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) n^k-->[[file:Q2 equation 1.png]]<br />
<br />
and<br />
<br />
<!-- (1+n)^p - n^p - 1 = sum (for k from 1 to p-1) of (p choose k) n^k -->[[file:Q2 equation 2.png]]<br />
<br />
since <math>\binom{p}{0} = \binom{p}{p} = 1</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
It holds that <math>\binom{p}{1} = p </math>.<br />
Since p is a prime number, the factor p in <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is not divisible by k, k-1,...,2 for 2 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
Therefore, p divides <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> for 1 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
<br />
Since each summand on the right side is divisible by p, the whole sum, i.e. the left side is also divisible by p.<br />
<br />
===Question 3===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 3]]<br />
<br />
<br />
Find the integer solutions (a,b) with <math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math solution to question 3]]<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
(&a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a^3 - 1) + (a^2 - 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + a + 1) + (a - 1)(a + 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) + 1 = 0<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore,<br> <br />
<math>(a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
a, b are integers, therefore the factors a - 1 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 \,</math> are integers too. Since the product is -1, one of the factors must be equal to -1, the other to 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = -1</math> then a = 0 and from <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = 1 \,</math> we obtain b = 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = 1</math> then a = 2 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = -1 \,</math> implies that b = 11.<br />
<br />
There are two integer solutions: <math>(a,b) = (0,1) \,</math> or <math>(a,b) = (2,11) \,</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution'''<br />
<br />
The question can also be solved by polynomial division.<br />
<br />
<math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> b = \frac{a^3 + a^2 - 1}{a - 1} = a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \,</math><br />
<br />
As <math>b \in \Z</math> is an integer, <math> a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math>, so <math> \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math><br />
<br />
As <math> 1 </math> has only two factors: <math>1</math> and <math>-1</math>, <br />
<br />
<math> a-1 = 1 \,</math> or <math> a-1 = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> a = 2 \,</math> or <math> a = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
Substituting the above values into the equation to find the corresponding <math> b </math>, we have <br />
<br />
<math> (a, b) = (0, 1) \,</math> or <math> (2, 11) \,</math><br />
<br />
===Question 4===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 4]]<br />
Given [[file:Math episode one question four.png]],<br />
<br />
find the sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(1)+F(2)+F(3)+...+F(60)}</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math, partial solution to question 4. Note that there are errors.]]<br />
<br />
Simplying the fraction:<br />
<br />
Notice that for any variables a & b:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{(a-b)(a+b) = a^2-b^2} </math>. <br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{a = \sqrt{2x + 1}} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b = \sqrt{2x - 1}} </math>. <br />
<br />
Multiply <math>\displaystyle{F(x)}</math> by 1 or <math>\displaystyle{\frac{a-b}{a-b}}</math> which is equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}} </math>. The denominator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(\sqrt{2x + 1} + \sqrt{2x - 1})(\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\<br />
&= (2x + 1) - (2x - 1)\\<br />
&= 2<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The numerator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(4x + \sqrt{4x^2 - 1} ) (\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\ <br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{(2x)^2 - 1)}) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{2x - 1} \sqrt{2x + 1} ) (a-b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + a b ) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + a^2 b - a b^2\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + (2x + 1) b - a (2x - 1)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) - 2x (a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=2x ( a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=(2x + 1) a - (2x - 1) b\\<br />
<br />
&=a^3 - b^3<br />
<br />
\end{align}<br />
<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle {F(x) = \frac{a^3 - b^3 }{2}} </math><br />
<br />
Note that when <math> \displaystyle{ x = 1, 2, 3, 4, \ldots, 60} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ a^3 = 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2}, 121^\frac{3}{2}} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ b^3 = 1^\frac{3}{2}, 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2} } </math>;<br />
<br />
Taking the sum over <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60, observe that the majority of the terms in <math> \displaystyle{a^3} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b^3} </math> cancel out, leaving:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
\sum_{x=1}^{60}F(x) &= \frac{121^\frac{3}{2} - 1^\frac{3}{2}}{2}\\<br />
&=\frac{(11^2)^\frac{3}{2} - 1}{2}\\<br />
&= 665<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Thus, sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60 is 665. The solution can be generalized as equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{a(x_{max}^3) - b(x_{min}^3)}{2}} </math>. Where <math> \displaystyle{a} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b} </math> are interpreted as functions of <math> \displaystyle{x} </math>.<br />

<br />
This advanced [[wikipedia:Algebra|Algebra]] problem previously appeared in the first '''[[wikipedia:Tokyo University|Tokyo University]]''' Entrance Exam:<br />
<br />
===Problem===<br />
A number sequence <math> \displaystyle{ \{F(n)\} }</math> that can be defined as <math> \displaystyle{F(1) = 1, F(2) = 1}</math>, <math> \displaystyle{F(n+2) = F(n) + F(n+1)} </math> (where <math> \displaystyle{n \in \mathbb{N}} </math>) is called the [[wikipedia:Fibonacci number|Fibonacci sequence]] and its general solution is given by, <br />
<br />
[[file:fibonacci.png]]<br />
<br />
[[file:golden ratio.png]]<br />
<br />
Answer the following questions by using this fact if needed:<br />
<br />
<br />
Define a sequence of natural numbers <math> \displaystyle{ \{X(n)\} } </math> (where n is any natural number), in which each digit is either 0 or 1, set by the following rules:<br />
<br />
(i) <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1} </math><br />
<br />
(ii) We define <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math> as a natural number, which can be obtained by replacing the digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> with 1 if the digit is 0, and with 10 if the digit is 1.<br />
<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math> <br />
<br />
'' '''Anecdote''': <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> can be considered a clever analogy to the show, where [[Episode 10]] should replaces [[Episode 1]] and [[Episode 1]] replaces Episode 0 in the viewer's next viewing.''<br />
<br />
(1) Find <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math>, defined as the number of digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
(2) Find <math> \displaystyle{B(n)} </math>, defined as the numbers of times '01' appears in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>?<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{B(1) = 0, B(2) = 0, B(3) = 1, B(4) = 1, B(5) = 3, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
<br />
===Solution===<br />
====Part 1====<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math> equal to the number of digits in X(n), which consists solely of 1s and 0s. Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is the number of 0s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> at the n-th iteration (poor choice of variable by the student). Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is the number of 1s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> in the n-th iteration, then <math> \displaystyle{x(n) + y(n) = A(n)} </math>. Since<br />
*Every time a 0 appears, it is replaced with 1 at the next iteration, contributing to a single 1 in <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math>.<br />
*Every time a 1 appears, it is replaced with 10 at t he next iteration, contributing to a single 1 and a single 0 in <math>X(n+1)</math>.<br />
it follows that the number of 0s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 1s previously: <br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1)= y(n)}</math> ;<br />
<br />
and the number of 1s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 0s AND the numbers of 1s previously:<br />
<br />
<math>y(n+1)= \displaystyle{x(n)+y(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
<br />
Next, prove that x(n) is a Fibonacci sequence, since we know that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+1) = x(n) + y(n)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = y(n+1)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)} </math> ;<br />
<br />
by substition we can show,<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&x(n+2)\\ <br />
&= y(n+1)\\<br />
&= x(n) + y(n)\\<br />
&= x(n) + x(n+1)<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Hence, <math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = x(n+1) + x(n)}</math>.<br />
<br />
Thus <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> fits the definition of a Fibonacci sequence. Since <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is a Fibonacci sequence, it follows that <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is also a Fibonacci sequence (given that <math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)}</math>). Therefore, since it has already been shown that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2)=x(n+1)+x(n)} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+2)=y(n+1)+y(n)} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle {x(n+2)+y(n+2)=x(n+1)+y(n+1)+x(n)+y(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
Recall that <math> \displaystyle{A(n)=x(n)+y(n)} </math>, therefore<br />
<br />
:<math> \displaystyle{A(n+2)=A(n+1)+A(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
Since, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle{A(1) = 1, A(2) = 2, A(3) = 3, A(4) = 5, A(5) = 8, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
Recall by definition of the Fibonacci sequence: <math> \displaystyle{\{F(n)\} = \{1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, \ldots\}} </math>. Therefore <math> \displaystyle{A(n) = F(n+1)} </math>, or<br />
<br />
[[file:An.png]]<br />
<br />
====Part 2====<br />
<br />
Let B(n) be the number of times '01' appears in X(n). Any two digits in X(n) may be 00, 01, 10, 11, and the corresponding digits in the next iteration X(n+1) will be<br />
<br />
*00 -> 11<br />
*01 -> 110<br />
*10 -> 101<br />
*11 -> 1010<br />
<br />
Thus, any two digit sequence in X(n) that begins with 1* will contribute to a 01 sequence in the next iteration. In other words, B(n+1) equals y(n), except when unit digit of X(n) is 1, or:<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = y(n) - odd(X(n))<br />
<br />
where<br />
*odd(n) = 1 if n is odd (unit digit is 1)<br />
*odd(n) = 0 if n is even (unit digit is 0)<br />
<br />
It can be seen that odd(n) = odd(X(n)) for all n. To prove this inductively: observe that odd(X(1)) = odd(1). Now let odd(X(n)) = odd(n), then if n is even, X(n) is even, thus X(n) ends with 0, which gets mapped to 1, making X(n+1) odd and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1). And if n is odd, then X(n) is odd, thus X(n) ends with 1, which gets mapped to 10, making X(n+1) even, and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1).<br />
<br />
y(n) is a fibonacci sequence with starting values: y(1) = 1, y(2) = 1, y(3) = 2<br />
thus y(n) = F(n)<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = F(n) - odd(n) <br />
<br />
B(n) = F(n-1) - odd(n-1), or<br />

[[File:Rebellion Math 1.jpg|thumb]]<br />
<br />
=== Problem A ===<br />
<br />
The first problem posed, (a), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{\arcsin^3x}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}\,dx</math><br />
<br />
We can perform the substitution <math>u=\arcsin x \longrightarrow \frac{du}{dx}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}</math> and so rewrite the integral as <math>\int u^3\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be easily solved via basic integration formulas: <math>\int u^3\,du=\frac{1}{4}u^4+C</math><br />
<br />
Undoing the substitution we get the solution: <math>\frac{1}{4}\arcsin^4x + C</math><br />
<br />
=== Problem B ===<br />
<br />
The second problem, (b), was to calculate <math>\int x\ln(x^2+y)\,dx</math><br />
In order to solve it we'll assume <math>\displaystyle y</math> to be a parameter independent from the value of <math>\displaystyle x</math> and <math>\displaystyle\ln x</math> to denote the natural logarithm of <math>\displaystyle x</math>.<br />
<br />
Performing the substitution <math>u=x^2+y\longrightarrow\frac{du}{dx}=2x</math> we can rewrite the integral as <math>\frac{1}{2}\int\ln u\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be solved integrating by parts: <math>\frac{1}{2}\int \ln u\,du=\frac{1}{2}(u\ln u - \int1\,du)=\frac{1}{2}u(\ln u - 1)</math><br />
<br />
And the final answer in obtained undoing the substitution: <math>\frac{1}{2}(x^2+y)\ln((x^2+y)-1)+C</math><br />
<br />
=== Problem C ===<br />
<br />
One of the problems posed, (c), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx</math>.<br />
<br />
The answer is to first simplify the function:<br />
<math>\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + \frac{12x - 3}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + 6\frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} + \frac{3}{x^2-x+1}</math>.<br />
Note that <math>x^2-x+1</math> has only simple complex zeros.<br />
<br />
It holds <math>\int x + 3 \, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + C</math>. <br />
<br />
The general formula <math>\int\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)}\, dx = \ln|f(x)| dx + C</math> can be used to calculate <math>\int \frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} \, dx = \ln(x^2-x+1) + C</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
For the last term, <math>\int\frac{dx}{a^2 + x^2} = \frac{1}{a}\arctan \frac{x}{a} + C</math> can be used (with some additional calculations) to obtain the solution<br />
<br />
<math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + 6\ln(x^2-x+1) + 2\sqrt{3} \arctan \frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{3}} + C</math></div>Primahttps://wiki.puella-magi.net/w/index.php?title=Talk:Mathematics_of_Madoka_Magica&diff=78105Talk:Mathematics of Madoka Magica2019-03-10T23:20:16Z<p>Prima: /* Contacted 0x99 about the broken latex module */ new section</p>

The cast of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica are students of [[Mitakihara Middle School]]. Even though it is merely a middle school, coursework in Mitakihara can be quite challenging. The following are Math problems that have appeared thus far in the show, and their solutions:<br />
<br />
==Episode 1==<br />
[[file:Episode One Algebra.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 1]]<br />
<br />
===Question 1===<br />
Any integer divided by 14 will have a remainder between 0 and 13. Given that a has a remainder of 6 and b has a remainder of 1 when divided by 14, what is the remainder of x when divided by 14, given x is an integer solution to <math>x^2-2ax+b=0</math>?<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
This problem can be solved simply with [[wikipedia:Modular arithmetic|modular arithmetic]]:<br />
<br />
*<math>a \equiv 6 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>b \equiv 1 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>x \equiv r \pmod{14}</math>.<br />
<br />
*<math>\displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0}</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
*<math>(x^2 - 12x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14}</math><br />
<br />
*<math>x^2 + 2x + 1 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because <math>-12 \equiv 2 \pmod{14}</math>)<br />
<br />
*<math>(x + 1)^2 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> (x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because 14 is square-free)<br />
<br />
*<math> x \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math> (because <math> -1 \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math>).<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution:'''<br />
<br />
Homura used in Episode 1 a basic approach with usual integer [[wikipedia:arithmetic|arithmetic]].<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{x = 14q + r, a = 14s + 6, b = 14t + 1} </math>.<br />
<br />
Substitute into <math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0} </math> to get after some calculations<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 14c + (r+1)^2 = 0} \mbox{ with } \displaystyle{c = 14q^2 + 2q - 28qs - 2rs - 12q + t - r}</math><br />
<br />
14 divides 14c and 0, hence it also divides <math>(r+1)^2</math>. This implies that <math>r+1</math> is divisible by 14.<br />
<br />
The question asks for a remainder r between 0 and 13, so we obtain r = 13.<br />

<br />
===Question 2===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q2.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 2]]<br />
Assuming that p is a prime number and n is an arbitrary natural number, prove that <math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \,</math> is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
By [[wikipedia:Fermat's Little Theorem|Fermat's Little Theorem]], for any prime p and integer a,<br />
<br />
<math> a^p \equiv a \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
Thus:<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n) - n - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>0 \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
So the overall expression is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
<br />
'''Second solution:'''<br />
<br />
The problem can be solved with the [[wikipedia:binomial theorem|binomial theorem]]:<br />
<br />
For a, b not equal to 0 and nonnegative integer p it holds that:<br />
<br />
<!--(a + b)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) a^(p-k) b^k-->[[file:Q2 binomial theorem.png]]<br />
<br />
where the binomial coefficient <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is the integer <!-- p(p-1)...(p-k+1)/(k(k-1)...1) --> [[file:Q2 binomial coefficient.png]] for 0 ≤ k ≤ p.<br />
<br />
Therefore,<br />
<br />
<!--(1 + n)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) n^k-->[[file:Q2 equation 1.png]]<br />
<br />
and<br />
<br />
<!-- (1+n)^p - n^p - 1 = sum (for k from 1 to p-1) of (p choose k) n^k -->[[file:Q2 equation 2.png]]<br />
<br />
since <math>\binom{p}{0} = \binom{p}{p} = 1</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
It holds that <math>\binom{p}{1} = p </math>.<br />
Since p is a prime number, the factor p in <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is not divisible by k, k-1,...,2 for 2 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
Therefore, p divides <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> for 1 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
<br />
Since each summand on the right side is divisible by p, the whole sum, i.e. the left side is also divisible by p.<br />

===Question 3===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 3]]<br />
<br />
<br />
Find the integer solutions (a,b) with <math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math solution to question 3]]<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
(&a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a^3 - 1) + (a^2 - 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + a + 1) + (a - 1)(a + 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) + 1 = 0<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore,<br> <br />
<math>(a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
a, b are integers, therefore the factors a - 1 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 \,</math> are integers too. Since the product is -1, one of the factors must be equal to -1, the other to 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = -1</math> then a = 0 and from <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = 1 \,</math> we obtain b = 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = 1</math> then a = 2 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = -1 \,</math> implies that b = 11.<br />
<br />
There are two integer solutions: <math>(a,b) = (0,1) \,</math> or <math>(a,b) = (2,11) \,</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution'''<br />
<br />
The question can also be solved by polynomial division.<br />
<br />
<math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> b = \frac{a^3 + a^2 - 1}{a - 1} = a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \,</math><br />
<br />
As <math>b \in \Z</math> is an integer, <math> a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math>, so <math> \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math><br />
<br />
As <math> 1 </math> has only two factors: <math>1</math> and <math>-1</math>, <br />
<br />
<math> a-1 = 1 \,</math> or <math> a-1 = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> a = 2 \,</math> or <math> a = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
Substituting the above values into the equation to find the corresponding <math> b </math>, we have <br />
<br />
<math> (a, b) = (0, 1) \,</math> or <math> (2, 11) \,</math><br />
<br />
===Question 4===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 4]]<br />
Given [[file:Math episode one question four.png]],<br />
<br />
find the sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(1)+F(2)+F(3)+...+F(60)}</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math, partial solution to question 4. Note that there are errors.]]<br />
<br />
Simplying the fraction:<br />
<br />
Notice that for any variables a & b:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{(a-b)(a+b) = a^2-b^2} </math>. <br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{a = \sqrt{2x + 1}} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b = \sqrt{2x - 1}} </math>. <br />
<br />
Multiply <math>\displaystyle{F(x)}</math> by 1 or <math>\displaystyle{\frac{a-b}{a-b}}</math> which is equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}} </math>. The denominator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(\sqrt{2x + 1} + \sqrt{2x - 1})(\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\<br />
&= (2x + 1) - (2x - 1)\\<br />
&= 2<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The numerator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(4x + \sqrt{4x^2 - 1} ) (\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\ <br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{(2x)^2 - 1)}) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{2x - 1} \sqrt{2x + 1} ) (a-b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + a b ) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + a^2 b - a b^2\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + (2x + 1) b - a (2x - 1)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) - 2x (a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=2x ( a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=(2x + 1) a - (2x - 1) b\\<br />
<br />
&=a^3 - b^3<br />
<br />
\end{align}<br />
<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle {F(x) = \frac{a^3 - b^3 }{2}} </math><br />
<br />
Note that when <math> \displaystyle{ x = 1, 2, 3, 4, \ldots, 60} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ a^3 = 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2}, 121^\frac{3}{2}} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ b^3 = 1^\frac{3}{2}, 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2} } </math>;<br />
<br />
Taking the sum over <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60, observe that the majority of the terms in <math> \displaystyle{a^3} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b^3} </math> cancel out, leaving:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
\sum_{x=1}^{60}F(x) &= \frac{121^\frac{3}{2} - 1^\frac{3}{2}}{2}\\<br />
&=\frac{(11^2)^\frac{3}{2} - 1}{2}\\<br />
&= 665<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Thus, sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60 is 665. The solution can be generalized as equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{a(x_{max}^3) - b(x_{min}^3)}{2}} </math>. Where <math> \displaystyle{a} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b} </math> are interpreted as functions of <math> \displaystyle{x} </math>.<br />

<br />
This advanced [[wikipedia:Algebra|Algebra]] problem previously appeared in the first '''[[wikipedia:Tokyo University|Tokyo University]]''' Entrance Exam:<br />
<br />
===Problem===<br />
A number sequence <math> \displaystyle{ \{F(n)\} }</math> that can be defined as <math> \displaystyle{F(1) = 1, F(2) = 1}</math>, <math> \displaystyle{F(n+2) = F(n) + F(n+1)} </math> (where <math> \displaystyle{n \in \mathbb{N}} </math>) is called the [[wikipedia:Fibonacci number|Fibonacci sequence]] and its general solution is given by, <br />
<br />
[[file:fibonacci.png]]<br />
<br />
[[file:golden ratio.png]]<br />
<br />
Answer the following questions by using this fact if needed:<br />
<br />
<br />
Define a sequence of natural numbers <math> \displaystyle{ \{X(n)\} } </math> (where n is any natural number), in which each digit is either 0 or 1, set by the following rules:<br />
<br />
(i) <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1} </math><br />
<br />
(ii) We define <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math> as a natural number, which can be obtained by replacing the digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> with 1 if the digit is 0, and with 10 if the digit is 1.<br />
<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math> <br />
<br />
'' '''Anecdote''': <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> can be considered a clever analogy to the show, where [[Episode 10]] should replaces [[Episode 1]] and [[Episode 1]] replaces Episode 0 in the viewer's next viewing.''<br />
<br />
(1) Find <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math>, defined as the number of digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
(2) Find <math> \displaystyle{B(n)} </math>, defined as the numbers of times '01' appears in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>?<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{B(1) = 0, B(2) = 0, B(3) = 1, B(4) = 1, B(5) = 3, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
<br />
===Solution===<br />
====Part 1====<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math> equal to the number of digits in X(n), which consists solely of 1s and 0s. Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is the number of 0s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> at the n-th iteration (poor choice of variable by the student). Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is the number of 1s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> in the n-th iteration, then <math> \displaystyle{x(n) + y(n) = A(n)} </math>. Since<br />
*Every time a 0 appears, it is replaced with 1 at the next iteration, contributing to a single 1 in <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math>.<br />
*Every time a 1 appears, it is replaced with 10 at t he next iteration, contributing to a single 1 and a single 0 in <math>X(n+1)</math>.<br />
it follows that the number of 0s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 1s previously: <br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1)= y(n)}</math> ;<br />
<br />
and the number of 1s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 0s AND the numbers of 1s previously:<br />
<br />
<math>y(n+1)= \displaystyle{x(n)+y(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
<br />
Next, prove that x(n) is a Fibonacci sequence, since we know that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+1) = x(n) + y(n)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = y(n+1)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)} </math> ;<br />
<br />
by substition we can show,<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&x(n+2)\\ <br />
&= y(n+1)\\<br />
&= x(n) + y(n)\\<br />
&= x(n) + x(n+1)<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Hence, <math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = x(n+1) + x(n)}</math>.<br />
<br />
Thus <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> fits the definition of a Fibonacci sequence. Since <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is a Fibonacci sequence, it follows that <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is also a Fibonacci sequence (given that <math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)}</math>). Therefore, since it has already been shown that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2)=x(n+1)+x(n)} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+2)=y(n+1)+y(n)} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle {x(n+2)+y(n+2)=x(n+1)+y(n+1)+x(n)+y(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
Recall that <math> \displaystyle{A(n)=x(n)+y(n)} </math>, therefore<br />
<br />
:<math> \displaystyle{A(n+2)=A(n+1)+A(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
Since, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle{A(1) = 1, A(2) = 2, A(3) = 3, A(4) = 5, A(5) = 8, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
Recall by definition of the Fibonacci sequence: <math> \displaystyle{\{F(n)\} = \{1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, \ldots\}} </math>. Therefore <math> \displaystyle{A(n) = F(n+1)} </math>, or<br />
<br />
[[file:An.png]]<br />
<br />
====Part 2====<br />
<br />
Let B(n) be the number of times '01' appears in X(n). Any two digits in X(n) may be 00, 01, 10, 11, and the corresponding digits in the next iteration X(n+1) will be<br />
<br />
*00 -> 11<br />
*01 -> 110<br />
*10 -> 101<br />
*11 -> 1010<br />
<br />
Thus, any two digit sequence in X(n) that begins with 1* will contribute to a 01 sequence in the next iteration. In other words, B(n+1) equals y(n), except when unit digit of X(n) is 1, or:<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = y(n) - odd(X(n))<br />
<br />
where<br />
*odd(n) = 1 if n is odd (unit digit is 1)<br />
*odd(n) = 0 if n is even (unit digit is 0)<br />
<br />
It can be seen that odd(n) = odd(X(n)) for all n. To prove this inductively: observe that odd(X(1)) = odd(1). Now let odd(X(n)) = odd(n), then if n is even, X(n) is even, thus X(n) ends with 0, which gets mapped to 1, making X(n+1) odd and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1). And if n is odd, then X(n) is odd, thus X(n) ends with 1, which gets mapped to 10, making X(n+1) even, and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1).<br />
<br />
y(n) is a fibonacci sequence with starting values: y(1) = 1, y(2) = 1, y(3) = 2<br />
thus y(n) = F(n)<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = F(n) - odd(n) <br />
<br />
B(n) = F(n-1) - odd(n-1), or<br />

[[File:Rebellion Math 1.jpg|thumb]]<br />
The first problem posed, (a), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{\arcsin^3x}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}\,dx</math><br />
<br />
We can perform the substitution <math>u=\arcsin x \longrightarrow \frac{du}{dx}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}</math> and so rewrite the integral as <math>\int u^3\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be easily solved via basic integration formulas: <math>\int u^3\,du=\frac{1}{4}u^4+C</math><br />
<br />
Undoing the substitution we get the solution: <math>\frac{1}{4}\arcsin^4x + C</math><br />
<br />
The second problem, (b), was to calculate <math>\int x\ln(x^2+y)\,dx</math><br />
In order to solve it we'll assume <math>\displaystyle y</math> to be a parameter independent from the value of <math>\displaystyle x</math> and <math>\displaystyle\ln x</math> to denote the natural logarithm of <math>\displaystyle x</math>.<br />
<br />
Performing the substitution <math>u=x^2+y\longrightarrow\frac{du}{dx}=2x</math> we can rewrite the integral as <math>\frac{1}{2}\int\ln u\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be solved integrating by parts: <math>\frac{1}{2}\int \ln u\,du=\frac{1}{2}(u\ln u - \int1\,du)=\frac{1}{2}u(\ln u - 1)</math><br />
<br />
And the final answer in obtained undoing the substitution: <math>\frac{1}{2}(x^2+y)\ln(x^2+y-1)+C</math><br />
<br />
One of the problems posed, (c), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx</math>.<br />
<br />
The answer is to first simplify the function:<br />
<math>\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + \frac{12x - 3}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + 6\frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} + \frac{3}{x^2-x+1}</math>.<br />
Note that <math>x^2-x+1</math> has only simple complex zeros.<br />
<br />
It holds <math>\int x + 3 \, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + C</math>. <br />
<br />
The general formula <math>\int\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)}\, dx = \ln|f(x)| dx + C</math> can be used to calculate <math>\int \frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} \, dx = \ln(x^2-x+1) + C</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
For the last term, <math>\int\frac{dx}{a^2 + x^2} = \frac{1}{a}\arctan \frac{x}{a} + C</math> can be used (with some additional calculations) to obtain the solution<br />
<br />
<math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + 6\ln(x^2-x+1) + 2\sqrt{3} \arctan \frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{3}} + C</math></div>Primahttps://wiki.puella-magi.net/w/index.php?title=Mathematics_of_Madoka_Magica&diff=78103Mathematics of Madoka Magica2019-03-10T21:39:21Z<p>Prima: /* Movie 3: Rebellion */ fix mistake</p>

[[file:Episode One Algebra.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 1]]<br />
<br />
===Question 1===<br />
Any integer divided by 14 will have a remainder between 0 and 13. Given that a has a remainder of 6 and b has a remainder of 1 when divided by 14, what is the remainder of x when divided by 14, given x is an integer solution to <math>x^2-2ax+b=0</math>?<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
This problem can be solved simply with [[wikipedia:Modular arithmetic|modular arithmetic]]:<br />
<br />
*<math>a \equiv 6 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>b \equiv 1 \pmod{14}</math>;<br />
*<math>x \equiv r \pmod{14}</math>.<br />
<br />
*<math>\displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0}</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
*<math>(x^2 - 12x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14}</math><br />
<br />
*<math>x^2 + 2x + 1 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because <math>-12 \equiv 2 \pmod{14}</math>)<br />
<br />
*<math>(x + 1)^2 \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> (x + 1) \equiv 0 \pmod{14} </math> (because 14 is square-free)<br />
<br />
*<math> x \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math> (because <math> -1 \equiv 13 \pmod{14}</math>).<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution:'''<br />
<br />
Homura used in Episode 1 a basic approach with usual integer [[wikipedia:arithmetic|arithmetic]].<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{x = 14q + r, a = 14s + 6, b = 14t + 1} </math>.<br />
<br />
Substitute into <math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 0} </math> to get after some calculations<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x^2 - 2ax + b = 14c + (r+1)^2 = 0} \mbox{ with } \displaystyle{c = 14q^2 + 2q - 28qs - 2rs - 12q + t - r}</math><br />
<br />
14 divides 14c and 0, hence it also divides <math>(r+1)^2</math>. This implies that <math>r+1</math> is divisible by 14.<br />
<br />
The question asks for a remainder r between 0 and 13, so we obtain r = 13.<br />

===Question 2===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q2.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 2]]<br />
Assuming that p is a prime number and n is an arbitrary natural number, prove that <math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \,</math> is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
<br />
By [[wikipedia:Fermat's Little Theorem|Fermat's Little Theorem]], for any prime p and integer a,<br />
<br />
<math> a^p \equiv a \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
Thus:<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n)^p - n^p - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>(1+n) - n - 1 \pmod{p} \,</math> is equivalent to<br />
<br />
<math>0 \pmod{p} \,</math><br />
<br />
So the overall expression is divisible by p.<br />
<br />
<br />
'''Second solution:'''<br />
<br />
The problem can be solved with the [[wikipedia:binomial theorem|binomial theorem]]:<br />
<br />
For a, b not equal to 0 and nonnegative integer p it holds that:<br />

<!--(a + b)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) a^(p-k) b^k-->[[file:Q2 binomial theorem.png]]<br />

where the binomial coefficient <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is the integer <!-- p(p-1)...(p-k+1)/(k(k-1)...1) --> [[file:Q2 binomial coefficient.png]] for 0 ≤ k ≤ p.<br />
<br />
Therefore,<br />
<br />
<!--(1 + n)^p = sum (for k from 0 to p) of (p choose k) n^k-->[[file:Q2 equation 1.png]]<br />
<br />
and<br />
<br />
<!-- (1+n)^p - n^p - 1 = sum (for k from 1 to p-1) of (p choose k) n^k -->[[file:Q2 equation 2.png]]<br />
<br />
since <math>\binom{p}{0} = \binom{p}{p} = 1</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
It holds that <math>\binom{p}{1} = p </math>.<br />
Since p is a prime number, the factor p in <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> is not divisible by k, k-1,...,2 for 2 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
Therefore, p divides <math>\binom{p}{k}</math> for 1 ≤ k ≤ p-1.<br />
<br />
Since each summand on the right side is divisible by p, the whole sum, i.e. the left side is also divisible by p.<br />

===Question 3===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 3]]<br />
<br />
<br />
Find the integer solutions (a,b) with <math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S3.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math solution to question 3]]<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
(&a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a^3 - 1) + (a^2 - 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + a + 1) + (a - 1)(a + 1) + 1 - (a - 1)b \\<br />
& = (a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) + 1 = 0<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore,<br> <br />
<math>(a - 1)(a^2 + 2a - b + 2) = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
a, b are integers, therefore the factors a - 1 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 \,</math> are integers too. Since the product is -1, one of the factors must be equal to -1, the other to 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = -1</math> then a = 0 and from <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = 1 \,</math> we obtain b = 1.<br />
<br />
If <math>a - 1 = 1</math> then a = 2 and <math>a^2 + 2a - b + 2 = -1 \,</math> implies that b = 11.<br />
<br />
There are two integer solutions: <math>(a,b) = (0,1) \,</math> or <math>(a,b) = (2,11) \,</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Second Solution'''<br />
<br />
The question can also be solved by polynomial division.<br />
<br />
<math>(a^3 + a^2 - 1) - (a - 1)b = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> b = \frac{a^3 + a^2 - 1}{a - 1} = a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \,</math><br />
<br />
As <math>b \in \Z</math> is an integer, <math> a^2 + 2a + 2 + \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math>, so <math> \frac{1}{a - 1} \in \Z</math><br />
<br />
As <math> 1 </math> has only two factors: <math>1</math> and <math>-1</math>, <br />
<br />
<math> a-1 = 1 \,</math> or <math> a-1 = -1 \,</math><br />
<br />
<math> a = 2 \,</math> or <math> a = 0 \,</math><br />
<br />
Substituting the above values into the equation to find the corresponding <math> b </math>, we have <br />
<br />
<math> (a, b) = (0, 1) \,</math> or <math> (2, 11) \,</math><br />
<br />
===Question 4===<br />
[[file:Episode One Math Q4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math question 4]]<br />
Given [[file:Math episode one question four.png]],<br />
<br />
find the sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(1)+F(2)+F(3)+...+F(60)}</math>.<br />
<br />
'''Solution:'''<br />
[[file:Episode One Math S4.jpg|thumb|Episode one Math, partial solution to question 4. Note that there are errors.]]<br />
<br />
Simplying the fraction:<br />
<br />
Notice that for any variables a & b:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{(a-b)(a+b) = a^2-b^2} </math>. <br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{a = \sqrt{2x + 1}} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b = \sqrt{2x - 1}} </math>. <br />
<br />
Multiply <math>\displaystyle{F(x)}</math> by 1 or <math>\displaystyle{\frac{a-b}{a-b}}</math> which is equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}{\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1}}} </math>. The denominator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(\sqrt{2x + 1} + \sqrt{2x - 1})(\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\<br />
&= (2x + 1) - (2x - 1)\\<br />
&= 2<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The numerator becomes:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&(4x + \sqrt{4x^2 - 1} ) (\sqrt{2x + 1} - \sqrt{2x - 1})\\ <br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{(2x)^2 - 1)}) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + \sqrt{2x - 1} \sqrt{2x + 1} ) (a-b)\\<br />
<br />
&=(4x + a b ) (a - b)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + a^2 b - a b^2\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) + (2x + 1) b - a (2x - 1)\\<br />
<br />
&=4x (a - b) - 2x (a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=2x ( a - b) + a + b\\<br />
<br />
&=(2x + 1) a - (2x - 1) b\\<br />
<br />
&=a^3 - b^3<br />
<br />
\end{align}<br />
<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Therefore:<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle {F(x) = \frac{a^3 - b^3 }{2}} </math><br />
<br />
Note that when <math> \displaystyle{ x = 1, 2, 3, 4, \ldots, 60} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ a^3 = 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2}, 121^\frac{3}{2}} </math>;<br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{ b^3 = 1^\frac{3}{2}, 3^\frac{3}{2}, 5^\frac{3}{2}, 7^\frac{3}{2}, 9^\frac{3}{2}, \ldots, 119^\frac{3}{2} } </math>;<br />
<br />
Taking the sum over <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60, observe that the majority of the terms in <math> \displaystyle{a^3} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b^3} </math> cancel out, leaving:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
\sum_{x=1}^{60}F(x) &= \frac{121^\frac{3}{2} - 1^\frac{3}{2}}{2}\\<br />
&=\frac{(11^2)^\frac{3}{2} - 1}{2}\\<br />
&= 665<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Thus, sum of <math> \displaystyle{F(x)} </math> for <math> \displaystyle{x} </math> between 1 and 60 is 665. The solution can be generalized as equal to <math> \displaystyle{\frac{a(x_{max}^3) - b(x_{min}^3)}{2}} </math>. Where <math> \displaystyle{a} </math> and <math> \displaystyle{b} </math> are interpreted as functions of <math> \displaystyle{x} </math>.<br />

[[File:Episode 9 Math.png|thumb|Fibonacci sequence question that appeared in Episode 9]]<br />
<br />
This advanced [[wikipedia:Algebra|Algebra]] problem previously appeared in the first '''[[wikipedia:Tokyo University|Tokyo University]]''' Entrance Exam:<br />
<br />
===Problem===<br />
A number sequence <math> \displaystyle{ \{F(n)\} }</math> that can be defined as <math> \displaystyle{F(1) = 1, F(2) = 1}</math>, <math> \displaystyle{F(n+2) = F(n) + F(n+1)} </math> (where <math> \displaystyle{n \in \mathbb{N}} </math>) is called the [[wikipedia:Fibonacci number|Fibonacci sequence]] and its general solution is given by, <br />
<br />
[[file:fibonacci.png]]<br />
<br />
[[file:golden ratio.png]]<br />
<br />
Answer the following questions by using this fact if needed:<br />
<br />
<br />
Define a sequence of natural numbers <math> \displaystyle{ \{X(n)\} } </math> (where n is any natural number), in which each digit is either 0 or 1, set by the following rules:<br />
<br />
(i) <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1} </math><br />
<br />
(ii) We define <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math> as a natural number, which can be obtained by replacing the digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> with 1 if the digit is 0, and with 10 if the digit is 1.<br />
<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math> <br />
<br />
'' '''Anecdote''': <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> can be considered a clever analogy to the show, where [[Episode 10]] should replaces [[Episode 1]] and [[Episode 1]] replaces Episode 0 in the viewer's next viewing.''<br />
<br />
(1) Find <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math>, defined as the number of digits of <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
(2) Find <math> \displaystyle{B(n)} </math>, defined as the numbers of times '01' appears in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math>?<br />
For example, <math> \displaystyle{B(1) = 0, B(2) = 0, B(3) = 1, B(4) = 1, B(5) = 3, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
<br />
===Solution===<br />
====Part 1====<br />
<br />
Let <math> \displaystyle{A(n)} </math> equal to the number of digits in X(n), which consists solely of 1s and 0s. Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is the number of 0s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> at the n-th iteration (poor choice of variable by the student). Let's suppose <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is the number of 1s in <math> \displaystyle{X(n)} </math> in the n-th iteration, then <math> \displaystyle{x(n) + y(n) = A(n)} </math>. Since<br />
*Every time a 0 appears, it is replaced with 1 at the next iteration, contributing to a single 1 in <math> \displaystyle{X(n+1)} </math>.<br />
*Every time a 1 appears, it is replaced with 10 at t he next iteration, contributing to a single 1 and a single 0 in <math>X(n+1)</math>.<br />
it follows that the number of 0s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 1s previously: <br />
<br />
<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1)= y(n)}</math> ;<br />
<br />
and the number of 1s in the next iteration is equal to the number of 0s AND the numbers of 1s previously:<br />
<br />
<math>y(n+1)= \displaystyle{x(n)+y(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
<br />
Next, prove that x(n) is a Fibonacci sequence, since we know that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+1) = x(n) + y(n)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = y(n+1)} </math> ;<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)} </math> ;<br />
<br />
by substition we can show,<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\begin{align}<br />
&x(n+2)\\ <br />
&= y(n+1)\\<br />
&= x(n) + y(n)\\<br />
&= x(n) + x(n+1)<br />
\end{align}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Hence, <math> \displaystyle{x(n+2) = x(n+1) + x(n)}</math>.<br />
<br />
Thus <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> fits the definition of a Fibonacci sequence. Since <math> \displaystyle{x(n)} </math> is a Fibonacci sequence, it follows that <math> \displaystyle{y(n)} </math> is also a Fibonacci sequence (given that <math> \displaystyle{x(n+1) = y(n)}</math>). Therefore, since it has already been shown that:<br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{x(n+2)=x(n+1)+x(n)} </math><br />
<br />
*<math> \displaystyle{y(n+2)=y(n+1)+y(n)} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle {x(n+2)+y(n+2)=x(n+1)+y(n+1)+x(n)+y(n)} </math>.<br />
<br />
Recall that <math> \displaystyle{A(n)=x(n)+y(n)} </math>, therefore<br />
<br />
:<math> \displaystyle{A(n+2)=A(n+1)+A(n)} </math> .<br />
<br />
Since, <math> \displaystyle{X(1) = 1, X(2) = 10, X(3) = 101, X(4) = 10110, X(5) = 10110101, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
It follows that <math> \displaystyle{A(1) = 1, A(2) = 2, A(3) = 3, A(4) = 5, A(5) = 8, \ldots} </math><br />
<br />
Recall by definition of the Fibonacci sequence: <math> \displaystyle{\{F(n)\} = \{1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, \ldots\}} </math>. Therefore <math> \displaystyle{A(n) = F(n+1)} </math>, or<br />
<br />
[[file:An.png]]<br />
<br />
====Part 2====<br />
<br />
Let B(n) be the number of times '01' appears in X(n). Any two digits in X(n) may be 00, 01, 10, 11, and the corresponding digits in the next iteration X(n+1) will be<br />
<br />
*00 -> 11<br />
*01 -> 110<br />
*10 -> 101<br />
*11 -> 1010<br />
<br />
Thus, any two digit sequence in X(n) that begins with 1* will contribute to a 01 sequence in the next iteration. In other words, B(n+1) equals y(n), except when unit digit of X(n) is 1, or:<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = y(n) - odd(X(n))<br />
<br />
where<br />
*odd(n) = 1 if n is odd (unit digit is 1)<br />
*odd(n) = 0 if n is even (unit digit is 0)<br />
<br />
It can be seen that odd(n) = odd(X(n)) for all n. To prove this inductively: observe that odd(X(1)) = odd(1). Now let odd(X(n)) = odd(n), then if n is even, X(n) is even, thus X(n) ends with 0, which gets mapped to 1, making X(n+1) odd and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1). And if n is odd, then X(n) is odd, thus X(n) ends with 1, which gets mapped to 10, making X(n+1) even, and so odd(X(n+1)) = odd(n+1).<br />
<br />
y(n) is a fibonacci sequence with starting values: y(1) = 1, y(2) = 1, y(3) = 2<br />
thus y(n) = F(n)<br />
<br />
B(n+1) = F(n) - odd(n) <br />
<br />
B(n) = F(n-1) - odd(n-1), or<br />

== Movie 3: Rebellion ==<br />
[[File:Rebellion Math 1.jpg|thumb]]<br />
<br />
=== Part A ===<br />
The first problem posed, (a), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{\arcsin^3x}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}\,dx</math><br />
<br />
We can perform the substitution <math>u=\arcsin x \longrightarrow \frac{du}{dx}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}</math> and so rewrite the integral as <math>\int u^3\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be easily solved via basic integration formulas: <math>\int u^3\,du=\frac{1}{4}u^4+C</math><br />
<br />
Undoing the substitution we get the solution: <math>\frac{1}{4}\arcsin^4x + C</math><br />
<br />
=== Part B ===<br />
<br />
The second problem, (b), was to calculate <math>\int x\ln(x^2+y)\,dx</math><br />
In order to solve it we'll assume <math>\displaystyle y</math> to be a parameter independent from the value of <math>\displaystyle x</math> and <math>\displaystyle\ln x</math> to denote the natural logarithm of <math>\displaystyle x</math>.<br />
<br />
Performing the substitution <math>u=x^2+y\longrightarrow\frac{du}{dx}=2x</math> we can rewrite the integral as <math>\frac{1}{2}\int\ln u\,du</math><br />
<br />
This can be solved integrating by parts: <math>\frac{1}{2}\int \ln u\,du=\frac{1}{2}(u\ln u - \int1\,du)=\frac{1}{2}u(\ln u - 1)</math><br />
<br />
And the final answer in obtained undoing the substitution: <math>\frac{1}{2}(x^2+y)\(ln(x^2+y)-1)+C</math><br />
<br />
<br />
=== Part C ===<br />
<br />
One of the problems posed, (c), was to calculate <math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx</math>.<br />
<br />
The answer is to first simplify the function:<br />
<math>\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + \frac{12x - 3}{x^2-x+1} = x + 3 + 6\frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} + \frac{3}{x^2-x+1}</math>.<br />
Note that <math>x^2-x+1</math> has only simple complex zeros.<br />
<br />
It holds <math>\int x + 3 \, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + C</math>. <br />
<br />
The general formula <math>\int\frac{f'(x)}{f(x)}\, dx = \ln|f(x)| dx + C</math> can be used to calculate <math>\int \frac{2x - 1}{x^2-x+1} \, dx = \ln(x^2-x+1) + C</math>.<br />
<br />
<br />
For the last term, <math>\int\frac{dx}{a^2 + x^2} = \frac{1}{a}\arctan \frac{x}{a} + C</math> can be used (with some additional calculations) to obtain the solution<br />
<br />
<math>\int\frac{x^3+2x^2+10x}{x^2-x+1}\, dx = \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + 6\ln(x^2-x+1) + 2\sqrt{3} \arctan \frac{2x-1}{\sqrt{3}} + C</math></div>Primahttps://wiki.puella-magi.net/w/index.php?title=Category:The_Beginning_Story_Chapters&diff=74917Category:The Beginning Story Chapters2018-06-05T01:21:59Z<p>Prima: category</p>

This is to allow the current editors to be able to change things a bit more easily. Thank you! --[[User:0x99|0x99]] ([[User talk:0x99|talk]]) 15:27, 2 April 2018 (UTC)<br />
:Thank you so much.--[[User:Universalperson|Universalperson]] ([[User talk:Universalperson|talk]]) 15:51, 2 April 2018 (UTC)<br />
:Awesome! Thank you so much! [[User:Sondenise|Sondenise]] ([[User talk:Sondenise|talk]]) 17:06, 2 April 2018 (UTC)<br />

You said you would be removing all the crack shipping garbage from the "yuri undertones" page when you upgraded the site, what happened to this? --[[User:Temptemp]] ([[User talk:Temptemp|talk]]) 21:39, 6 April 2018 (UTC)<br />
: Since a complete renew of the wiki seems to not be happening anytime soon (due to reduced number of editors we have, and me being busy with RL), we will have to take another approach in cleaning up articles. However, considering the Wiki's root (4chan), we cannot simply delete the page either. This is very likely resulting in subjective/fan content having its own section, completely isolated from the rest of the site. Please feel free to suggest if you have any ideas. --[[User:0x99|0x99]] ([[User talk:0x99|talk]])</div>Primahttps://wiki.puella-magi.net/w/index.php?title=Sales&diff=74372Sales2018-05-08T05:33:03Z<p>Prima: /* Movies */ add rebellion blip</p>

==Summary==<br />
Madoka and the other magical girls reappear at Mitakihara fighting some new creatures born from humans' negative feelings known as "Nightmares" (ナイトメア Naitomea), having no recollection about what previously happened. However, Homura realizes something is amiss and after some investigation recovers her lost memories and realizes that she, Madoka, the other girls and several of their friends are trapped in an alternate world inside a witch's barrier. As Homura realizes that the witch is none other than herself, Kyubey appears and reveals that she had fallen into despair and when she was about to become a witch, he isolated her Soul Gem to set a trap for Madoka, hoping to take control of the confounding Law of Cycles.<br />
<br />
However, when Madoka appeared to retrieve Homura, she had forgotten about her duty as the Law of Cycles and her powers, thus Kyubey kept observing her until that point. Having recovered her memories, Homura forces herself to complete the witch transformation at the cost of having her soul destroyed, to protect Madoka from the Incubators. At that moment Sayaka and a new girl named Nagisa Momoe, whose witch form is actually Charlotte—the witch that killed Mami—lead Madoka and the others in breaking the barrier to reach Homura's real body. Madoka recovers her memories and power as the Law of Cycles and reaches for Homura, but the latter releases the curse in her Soul Gem which she reveals is not one of despair, but love. With this power, retaining her human form, Homura suppresses Madoka's powers while transcending into what she considers to be a demon.<br />
<br />
Afterwards, Homura captures Kyubey and rewrites reality so he and his kind take Madoka's place in taking the misery of magical girls in history while she can return to a normal life. But Homura realizes that Madoka will eventually remember the truth and regain her divinity, accepting that they might become enemies should that time come. A post-credits scene shows Homura seated in a chair while watching over Mitakihara City and a badly-beaten Kyubey in the vicinity. After staring into the horizon, Homura leans over and falls off a cliff.<br />

==Observations==<br />
* Before the movie starts, it asks the audience to please not to make spoilers.<br />
* [[Kyoko Sakura]] and [[Sayaka Miki]] live together<br />
* [[Nagisa Momoe]] is [[Charlotte]].<br />
* [[Hitomi Shizuki]] became a [[Nightmare]] and then was turned back into human form.<br />
* [[Homura Akemi]] becomes something more powerful than "Madokami".<br />
* For some reason at the end of the movie, besides Madoka (partially) and Homura, the only Mahou Shoujo who remembers everything that happened in the movie is Sayaka.<br />
*Sayaka transforms into Oktavia and is able to control her witch form.<br />
*Homura takes over Madoka's responsibilities and her powers, replacing the "Law of Cycles" with her own rules. Technically, Homura dethroned Madoka ending her era of reign, hence the title of "Rebellion".<br />
*While Homura is addressed as the devil by fans/fansubs, the official translation for what Homura calls herself at the end of the movie is Demon, not Devil.<br />
**Homura calls herself ''Akuma'' because she sees herself as a existence that opposes God. Considering that, the translation that fits the most is "devil."<br />
**Demon in Japanese is 悪魔 which is read akuma. The Japanese word akuma means "Demon, Devil; Fiend; Satan; Evil spirit" and is composed of the kanji 悪 (read aku) meaning "evil; bad; wrong" and 魔 (read ma) meaning "witch; demon; evil spirit".<br />
*The first take on Homura's dialogue before the ending of the movie sounds completely different from the final product in terms of emotions. Homura's tone and feelings were toned down, as she sounded "too emotional".<br />
*Just like in the Anime series, Kyubey's greed and plan backfired spectacularly. He tried to capture Madoka with a barrier of his own (after being told of her existence by Homura), but instead it helped Homura to become a much more powerful entity in the process.<br />
*Looking back, "[[Magia]]" lyrics takes a much darker undertone.<br />
**Homura's greedy yearning has no tomorrow.<br />
**Homura's desire for a spell to fight the "sorrow" before her eyes [Madoka's selflessness].<br />
**Madoka is a dreaming memory, only Homura is awake.<br />
**Homura wants an endless dream for both of them.<br />
**Homura's wish literally becomes everything in the new universe.<br />
*Colourful (カラフル ''[[Colorful|karafuru]]'') by ClariS, gives us a hint of what is to come:<br />
**four girls dancing and having fun<br />
**Homura won't join in<br />
**only reaches her hand to grasp Madoka's<br />
**Madoka's hand turns to sand, Homu stands alone in a desert area with a throne<br />
**[[:file:Unknown op homura rebellion.jpg|Devil's earring]] sinking in the sand (?)<br />
*[[Homulilly]]'s appearance in ''Rebellion'' differs greatly from her original appearance in the PSP game. She appears as a huge, distorted version of Homura, with the upper half of her head replaced by a red spider lily. Her minions are twisted versions of the pigtailed Homura from the first few timelines, armed with spears. The long ribbons of the witch's dress act as flexible arms, attacking everything around her.<br />
**The witch's hands are in manacles, and a giant guillotine rises from the ground when she begins to head towards the city. It appears that the witch is trying to reach the guillotine so she can sacrifice herself, which would free everyone else from her witch barrier. This is foreshadowed by an image of Mami and Kyoko beheading Homura in a similar guillotine as she begins to transform into Homulilly. <br />
**The witch initially appears wearing a stereotypical witch's hat which resembles a record player, possibly as a reference to her PSP appearance, but quickly discards it to reveal the red spider lily underneath.<br />
**Red spider lilies also appear when Homura realises she has become a witch.<br />
**The witch has two additional types of minions: minions that resemble human girls (possibly representing fallen magical girls, they were much stronger than other minions in battle) and purple bird-like minions. Interestingly, these minions can still be seen in the new universe, and Homura still seems to be able to control them to an extent. It's unclear why Homura chose to keep her minions, since she claims she is no longer a witch.<br />
**Homura appears to be masking the true forms of her minions in the new universe; in one scene Kyoko is seen feeding apples to the bird-like minions, apparently believing them to be normal birds.<br />
*Sayaka is the only character (apart from Homura) who retains the memories of the previous world.<br />
**In the MadoVerse of the anime series, Sayaka was allowed to retain her memories so she could express her opinion and pass away peacefully with no regrets. In the version of the HomuVerse in "Rebellion" Sayaka is allowed to retain her memories (and her life) so she can express her displeasure and opinion against Homura's actions.<br />
*Ms. Kazuko makes a reference to the coming of an important Holiday in a foreign land and its connection to the end of the world. It is highly possible that she is referring to the [http://www.sonoma.edu/users/v/vegalu/eschatology_files/Chanukah.pdf November 28, 2013 Hanukkah comet], the [http://www.redmoonrapture.com/2014-2015.html 2014-2015 Jewish Holidays], and the [http://www.pray4zion.org/TheComingBloodMoons.html return of the Biblical Savior.] <br />
*Prior to the movie events and at the beginning of the anime series, the universe was first 'Atheistic' (the Mahou Shoujo system was in place and there was no concept of hope, it was ruled by despair), after the anime series ended the universe went to a transformation and became 'Monoistic' (Madoka became the concept of hope and put in place the Law of Cycles). "Rebellion" expands the universe by transforming it once again, and introducing a 'Dualism' system in place. If Madoka represents the concept of hope (selfless love), then Homura represent the concept of despair (selfish love).<br />
**However, the system is neither equal nor fair. Madoka's powers are repressed and she is a prisoner in the new reality, indicating that these two powers cannot rule equally. There can only be one ruling entity, which is why Homura tells Madoka that they are [[:file:Homucifer Vs Madokami.jpg|enemies.]]<br />
*If the message from the anime series, was a message of hope. Then message from "Rebellion" is its opposite.<br />
**Urobuchi wasnt kidding when he said fans would hate the new ending, [[:file:2 people before and after watched Madoka movie.jpg|look what it did to these fans.]]<br />
**In the MadoVerse, the message was one of hope, Madoka allowed the universe to retain their free will and she respected the wishes of magical girls so as not to rob them of their sacrifice, the world was not prefect but it was much better than under the old system. But the HomuVerse is assumed to be the opposite. It is deceptively peaceful and happy, Homura was only able to create this universe by robbing Madoka of her free will, erasing her memory, and denying Madoka's wish of salvation thus rending Madoka's message of hope meaningless. Not only that but for Homura to be able to sustain this new reality, she extended her barrier to cover the whole universe, probably as a way to have it under her influence to guarantee that it doesn't create a reason for Madoka to sacrifice herself again.<br />
*Some observers think that at the end Homura is slightly going mad, that it is the beginning of her descend into madness.<br />
*The BGM played in each girl's transformation sequence references a song from the original soundtrack:<br />
**Mami: Salve terrae magicae<br />
**Kyouko: Venari strigas<br />
**Sayaka: Decretum<br />
**Homura: Puella in somnio<br />
**Madoka: Sagitta luminis<br />
*There are a lot of [[wikipedia:Grimms'_Fairy_Tales|Grimm Fairy Tales]] allusions:<br />
**Homura as Sleeping Beauty.<br />
**The pumpkin carriage<br />
**The clock struck at 12.<br />
*''"God is dead"'' is a widely quoted statement by German philosopher [[wikipedia:Friedrich_Nietzsche|Friedrich Nietzsche]]. Nietsche continues, ''"God remains dead. And we have killed him,"'' foreshadowing the ending.<br />
*According with Shinbou, the Madoka inside Homura's world is the real Madoka, ''"who has lost her memories of becoming a god. She’s not a fake or Homura’s creation. What she says in the field of flowers is what she’s really feeling at the time. That scene may seem overly sentimental at first glance, but if you think of everything Homura does afterward, her feelings will come across more easily."''[http://feral-phoenix.livejournal.com/685568.html#|]<br />
*At the bus station there are signs written in runes, [[:file:Rebellion Runes - 011113 - sign.jpg|they mention the Nutcracker]]. A possible reference to [[wikipedia:The_Nutcracker_and_the_Mouse_King|The Nutcracker and the Mouse King]], a 19th century German story by E. T. A. Hoffman.<br />
**As the Nutcracker Witch, Homully has no teeth or her teeth are familiars that chew for her. In dream interpretation, falling teeth has several significant meanings:[http://dreammoods.com/cgibin/teethdreams.pl?method=exact&header=dreamid&search=teethintro]<br />
***It reflects anxiety, a fear of rejection, sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. Another interpretation is that teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth symbolize power. And the loss of teeth in a dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. <br />
***A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicates that one is putting one's faith, trust, and beliefs in what humans thinks, rather than in the word of God.<br />
***Many cultures, including the Hispanic and Greek cultures, believe that when you dream about loose, rotten, falling, or missing teeth, then it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.<br />
**It is possible that teeth may be a reference to the [[:wikipedia:Tooth_fairy|Tooth Fairy]]. Unlike Santa Claus and, to a lesser extent, the Easter Bunny, there are few details of the tooth fairy's appearance that are consistent in various versions of the myth. Usually in the West the tooth fairy is depicted as female, a type a fairy with wings. However, in Spanish and Hispanic American cultures the role of the tooth fairy is relegated to the [[:wikipedia:Ratoncito_Pérez|Ratoncito Pérez]] (or Ratón Pérez, "Pérez Mouse" in English)) that originated in Madrid in 1894. As is traditional in some English-speaking countries, when a child loses a tooth it is customary for him or her to place it under the pillow, so that Ratoncito Pérez will exchange it for a gift. The tradition is almost universal in Spanish cultures, but takes different forms in different areas. One of the roles of Homulilly's familiars is to kill "the white rat" (which is Kyubey), perhaps this is a reference to the Ratoncito Pérez.<br />
**The nuts could be a reference to Grief Seeds, as they look like nuts.<br />
**Homulilly's familiars are called "Clara dolls", Clara is the lead character's name in most of [[:wikipedia:The_Nutcracker|The Nutcracker]] ballet versions and there is the reference to [[:file:Witches Artwork 04.jpg|killing rats]] in one of the familiar's card.<br />
***[[:file:Nutcracker set designs.jpg|A relevant set]] from that play by [[:wikipedia:E. T. A. Hoffmann|E. T. A. Hoffmann]]<br />
**In the Nutcracker fairytale, the title character also uses a tooth and then, rendered useless, thoughtlessly discarded. A fate he shares with magical girls.<br />
*During the final bus ride, owls pouch on clocks as they strike twelve. This is a direct reference to The Nutcracker where it marks the moment when the dolls come alive and the war between the nutcracker and the mouse king continues.<br />
*Usually victims must enter a Witch's barrier to fall under their trap. However, it is speculated that Homura's Clara Dolls kidnapped specific targets and brought them into Homura's barrier. Only those specific individuals are allowed to enter.<br />
*This is the third time that Homura got beaten by Mami. The first two times happened in the Anime series the same way with Mami's magical ribbons, getting entangled by Mami's ribbons is one of Homura's weaknesses. The only reason she broke free was because Homura took a huge gamble that could have cost her life.<br />
*A '''mare''' or [[:wikipedia:Mare_(folklore)|'''nightmare''']] (Proto-Germanic: ''*marōn''; Old English: ''mære''; Old Norse: ''mara''; German: ''Nachtmahr'') is an evil spirit or goblin in Germanic folklore which rides on people's chests while they sleep, bringing on bad dreams (or "nightmares"). The mare is often similar to the mythical creatures [[:wikipedia:Succubus|succubus]] and [[:wikipedia:Incubus_(demon)|incubus]], and was likely inspired by sleep paralysis. <br />
**The mare was also believed to "ride" horses, which left them exhausted and covered in sweat by the morning. She could also entangle the hair of the sleeping man or beast, resulting in ''"marelocks"'', called ''marflätor'' "mare-braids" or ''martovor'' "mare-tangles" in Swedish or ''marefletter'' and ''marelokker'' in Norwegian.<br />
**Hungarian folklorist [[:wikipedia:Éva_Pócs|Éva Pócs]] traces the core term back to the Greek word μόρος ''moros'', "death".<br />
**According to [[:wikipedia:Paul_Devereux|Paul Devereux]], mares included witches who took on the form of animals when their spirits went out while they were in trance. Animals such as frogs, cats, horses, hares, dogs, oxen, birds and often bees and wasps.<br />
**It is interesting to note that ''mara'', besides being a root-word for nightmare, is also the name of a [[wikipedia:Mara_(demon)|Buddhist deity analogous to the devil]]. Although this may be a coincidence, Homura does ascend to become a Mara-like figure at the end of ''Rebellion''.<br />
*When Kyubey keeps Homura inside an Incubator's isolation field, he compares Homura to a baby chick, ''"you're a like a chick that wasn't able to break its shell and grew up within it."''<br />
**In [[:wikipedia:Revolutionary_Girl_Utena|Revolutionary Girl Utena]], Touga Kiryuu utters [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwud_XQGjhQ a same sentiment about the students and the world.]<br />
**Even if this was just an observational opinion regarding Homura's entrapment within the field. It can also be interpreted as a observational point regarding Homura's emotional state of mind. Homura keeps her emotions bottle up and in check, as away to avoid despair and a sense of hopelessness. As a result one could interpret Homura's behavior as a fear of getting hurt by hiding her real emotions, forced to mature mentally and rapidly in a way to survive her ordeal at the cost of not being able to properly develop a healthy emotional growth in a well adjusted environment.<br />

* Takarajima's men's fashion magazine [[Smart 2013-04|Smart revealed in its April issue]] that the movie would be released in Summer 2013. They later reported on Twitter that this was an error. [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-02-25/magazine/3rd-madoka-magica-film-summer-listing-was-in-error]<br />
* On August 2012, a [[:file:New magical girl character magazine article 2012.jpg|picture]] of a magazine article was leaked to the internet, revealing what appears to be [[:file:2ch Asumi Original.jpg|a new character]] for the ''Madoka'' movie. It was quickly discovered that the magazine article was actually [[Translated_Official_Documents/Confirmed_Fakes#Jinna_Asumi|a fabrication]] by [http://2chnull.info/r/news4vip/1342419830/1-1001 2ch] to [http://ex14.vip2ch.com/i/responce.html?bbs=part4vip&dat=1342453877 deceive] ''Madoka'' fans.<br />
* On September 3rd, 2013, [http://www.madoka-magica.com/character/ the official website added a character page] that revealed a new magical girl named [[Nagisa Momoe]].<br />
* In Mezamashi TV's feature, it is revealed that there will be a new kind of enemy named "nightmare" and Madoka is once again seen attending school with Kyoko and Sayaka. Aoi Yuki also revealed that the nightmare is not a witch.<br />
* Producer Iwakami [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/feature/2013-12-07#| announced on the US premier] that they have no official plans for the ''Madoka'' franchise right now. Both he and director Shinbo have expressed interest in continuing if they can find a suitable scenario.<br />
** In 2012 Urobuchi [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-13/madoka-magica-story-will-not-end-in-3rd-film had stated] that ''Madoka Magica'''s story will continue after ''Rebellion''. [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-16/new-madoka-magica-show-considered-after-3rd-film He also said that plans for a half-year anime series were being considered].<br />
*The official title for Homura's new form is Akuma Homura. "Akuma" means "devil" or "demon" as well as being a pun on "Akemi". Fan nicknames include Homucifer, Homulucifer, HomuSatan, Devil Homura, Homurakuma, and Homukami.<br />
*Urobuchi planned a scenario where Homura ascended with Madoka, but was asked by [http://feral-phoenix.livejournal.com/685568.html#| director Shinbo Akiyuki and producer Iwakami Atsuhiro] to come up with an ending that would allow for the continuation of the franchise. A comment by Shinbo that Homura and Madoka could end up as enemies inspired the current ending.<br />
**Contrary to earlier misinformation and rumors, Urobuchi was '''not''' forced by Shinbo to write a different ending, nor that the ending was a last minute change in the script - the discussion and brainstorming for the ending occurred in the early stages of the movie, before Urobuchi had even written the script. That the ending of the movie differed from the first ending Urobuchi suggested is a regular process in early production stages. It is also untrue that Urobuchi disagreed or disliked the ending of the movie - quite the contrary, in fact.<br />
*Rebellion Production Notes says that the Clara Dolls are the dress-up dolls that Homura used to play with.<br />

</blockquote> <br />
<br />
One of the main concerns regarding the new ending in "Rebellion" is that Homura's action renders Madoka's sacrifice and message of hope meaningless. The ending from the anime series and the previous film loses its impact and this causes concern among the fans who became emotionally invested on Madoka's message of hope.<br />
<br />
Another problem is the devolution of the Homura character, starting from a weakly girl and evolving into a strong magical girl, Homura becomes what many consider to be a strong underdog who overcame many obstacles to protect what she treasures. However, in "Rebellion" we see what appears to be the beginning of the unraveling of the Homura character, we see the fall of a strong magical girl into what it is presumed to be a form of madness.<br />
<br />
Many fans regard the movie as not being genuine nor true to the original anime series, with various far-fetched and abrupt deviations. They think of it as a mostly commercial moneygrab that contains little carefully crafted content, just as many other anime productions in Japan do. They still regard the original ending of the anime as canon.<br />

<div><blockquote>''"You know about the food chain, right? I'm sure you learned about it in school. The witches eat the weak humans. And we eat those witches. That's the way stuff works, right?"'' <br />-'''[[Kyoko]]''' in [[Episode 5]]</blockquote><br />
<br />
[[File:Food chain.jpg|thumb|300px|Kyoko's food chain.]]<br />
As Kyouko alluded, the [[Magic#Magical_creatures|relationship]] between [[magical girl]]s, [[witch]]es, and the general population resembles a food chain in nature. However, magical girls and witches shares a unique relationship not typically represented in predator-prey equations: when a magical girl's [[soul gem]] darkens completely, she is reborn as a witch (as revealed in [[Episode 8]]). This relationship leads to a more complicated interdependence between the two populations, one unaccounted for in standard [[wikipedia:population modeling|population modeling]]. Due to this, a new population model needs to be developed specifically for these [[Magic#magical_creatures|magical creatures]] to properly analyze their [[wikipedia:population dynamics|population dynamics]].<br />
<br />
=Model assumptions=<br />
[[file:Population model.png|300px|thumb|Graphical representation of population model used.]]<br />
Both the [[magical girl]] and [[witch]] populations draw their numbers from the general human population. To simplify calculations, we assume that both populations are many magnitudes smaller in comparison to the overall human population, and human losses that result from magical activities contribute insignificant changes to it.<br />
<br />
The magical girl population increases by the number of new girls [[Kyubey]] contracted and decreases by the rate of them dying or becoming witches. The Witch population increase by the number of matured [[familiar|familiars]] per witch as well as the rate of magical girls that became witches, but decreases by the rate magical girls hunt and kill them. We can summarize these premises as the following variables:<br />
<br />
*'''M(t)''': the number of magical girls at the time ''t'' (a natural number)<br />
*'''W(t)''': the number of witches at the time ''t'' (a natural number)<br />
*'''C''': the number of girls Kyubey contracts at each iteration (a natural number)<br />
*'''D''': the proportion of magical girls dying at each iteration (a percentage)<br />
*'''B''': the proportion of magical girls becoming witches (a percentage)<br />
*'''K''': the proportion of witches killed at each iteration (a percentage)<br />
*'''F''': the number of [[familiar]]s per witch that mature into witches (a positive rational number)<br />
<br />
=Simple model=<br />
A simple mathematical model was initially proposed (various refinements are defined below). In the simple model, the rate of magical girls dying, becoming witches, and killing witches is assumed to be independent of the witch population. This have an effect of simplifying calculations and provides for a closed-form solution to the differential equations. Under this assumption, the populations can be defined as following:<br />
<br />
;[[File:Formula for Basic Population, M part.png|Formula for Basic Population, M part]]<br />
<br />
;[[File:Formula for Basic Population, W part.png|Formula for Basic Population, W part]]<br />
<br />
==Simulation==<br />
One 100-iterations execution of the simple model with Matlab, using a set of reasonable values for the variables:<br />
<br />
{|class="wikitable" style="line-height: 1.6em; width: 100%;"<br />
! style="text-align: center; background: #ffffff; width: 70%;"|Matlab simulation<br />

|-<br />

;C = 100<br />
;D = 0.25<br />
;B = 0.125<br />
;K = 0.12<br />
;F = 0.015<br />
;M(1) = 0<br />
;W(1) = 0<br />
<br />
;<math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } = 267}</math> <br />
;<math>\textstyle{ C \left ( {B-K \over B+D} \right ) = 1}</math><br />
|}<br />
<br />
The values used are arbitrary but reasonably selected. Subsequent simulations show that adjustments to the variable values affect curvature but does not affect the general behavior of the populations.<br />
<br />
==Population at Equilibrium==<br />
If both populations are in equilibrium, then there are no changes to either the witch and magical girl population ['''ΔM(t)''' = 0 & '''ΔW(t)''' = 0]. It follows that the number of magical girls contracted will balance out those that died or become witch in the same period ['''C = (D + B) M(t)''']; and the number of witches matured from minions balances out numbers contributed by magical girls ['''F * W(t) = (K - B) M(t)''']. <br />
*At equilibrium, the magical girl population is equal to <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math> .<br />
*At equilibrium, the witch population is '''(B - K) M(t)'''. If '''M(t)''' is also in equilibrium, then the witch population is <math>\textstyle{ C \left ( {B-K \over B+D} \right ) }</math>.<br />
<br />
==General Solution==<br />
The general solution for the witch and magical girl populations in this model are:<br />
;[[File:Closed form for M(t).png]]<br />
;[[File:Closed form for W(t).png]]<br />
for some constant α and β. If we assume witches and magical girls are introduced by QB's civilization, thus initial population of both at the system's introduction were zero ['''M(0)=0 W(0)=0''']. W(t) and M(t) becomes:<br />
;[[File:Closed form of M(t) at M(0)=0.png]]<br />
;[[File:Closed form of W(t) at W(0)=0.png]]<br />
<br />
==Conclusions and observations==<br />
[[File:Kyubey's backup supply of despair.jpg|right|300px]]<br />
*Every dead magical girl is one that did not become a witch. For [[Kyubey]], whose goal is to harvest energy from the magical girl-to-witch transformation, every death meant wasted time contracting the girl. It makes sense for him to design a system where most Witches are weaker than Magical Girls in order to reduce the magical girl casualty rate ['''K > B'''].<br />
*If magic girls are stronger than witches, it follows that the typical Magic Girl will kill multiple Witches before becoming one ['''K - B''' > 0]. Because of this, there's a need for an alternative source for creating witches. This explains why that despite Kyubey cares only of the energy from Magic Girl-Witches transformation, the supplementary system of witch growth from familiars exist.<br />
*The magical girl population will always reach equilibrium at <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math>, regardless of initial number of magical girls or actual values of '''C, D, or B'''. The population is limited by Kyubey's ability to contract new girls, and may explain why there seems to be so few magical girls around.<br />
*Even when a significant number of magical girl is introduced initially, their numbers will eventually whithered down to sustainable population level of <math>\textstyle{ { C \over {B+D} } }</math>. This is a natural consequence of limited by the linear growth rate, independent of any environmental or crowding stresses.<br />
*In contrast, the witch population will never reach equilibrium. The number of witches will fluctuate minutely at the initial period, but inevitably familiar growth will outpace all other factors, and the population will eventually explode into exponential growth. Realistically, the growth may ultimately be capped by human depopulation from witch activities, but at this point the initial premises of the model breaks down.<br />
*Due to the above, any planet with this magical girl and witch system in place is inevitably doomed to extinction. It is not possible to save the human population, with exception of forced extermination of all witches and magical girls. This may explain why in the [[Episode_10#Timeline_4|fourth timeline]] Kyubey simply chose to abandon Earth rather than attempting sustainable farming of the planet.<br />

<br />
==Refinements==<br />
[[File:Colonel aki - food for thought.jpg|right|115px]]<br />
The simple model provides a mathematical basis for explaining certain idiosyncrasies of the Magica universe, but suffers from overly generalized assumptions that breaks down in some situations. Several refinements were attempted on the simple model to account for these problems. Unfortunately, these refinements need more complex sets of differential equations to properly describe the model, which do not have general solutions and can only be interpreted through simulations.<br />
<br />
=Witch population dependence=<br />
Consider the situation when the magical girls population is substantially bigger than the witch population ['''M(t) > W(t)''']. If there's not many witches around, how do the magical girls find as much opportunity to hunt witches and use magic? Obviously less magic girls will die or become witches, compared to if witches are more abundant. In these situations, the variables ['''B, K, D'''] depends not on the current number of magic girls, but on the current number of witches. Based on these premises, '''ΔM(t)''' and '''ΔW(t)''' may be redefined as:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta M(t) = C - (D + B) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t))<br />
</math><br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta W(t) = F \times W(t) + (B - K) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t))<br />
</math><br />
<br />
where min() chooses the lesser of the two populations.<br />
<br />
==Simulation==<br />

|}<br />
<br />
[[File:Modified population model.png|thumb|300px|The refined model, in terms of cute girls doing cute things]]<br />
<br />
==Observations==<br />
*This model allows for cases where ΔW(t) depends solely on W(t) in low witch population situations, therefore, the initial number of witches must be nonzero. If not, no magical girl would turn into a witch and the witch population is always static at zero. Kyubey may have named this initial witch [[Speculah:Walpurgis Night|Walpurgisnaught]].<br />
* If '''F+B-K''' is less than zero, the number of witches created (be it by magical girls mutation or familiars maturation) is less than the number of witches killed by magical girls. In that scenario, the population of witches [ '''W(t)''' ] always extincts rapidly, while magical girls would grow linearly. Additionally, because we previously concluded (from the simple model) that '''K - B > 0''', then '''F > K - B''', implying that more familiars need to mature in each time period than witches killed. To combat this possibility of rapid extinction, witches need to adopt an evolutionary strategy similar to the [[wikipedia:mass spawning|mass spawning]] used by most fish and insect species. If sufficient number of familiars bud from each witch, probability of more familiars will mature will increase. This may explain why there are so many familiars in each witch's lair.<br />
* The populations undergo two distinct period of development:<br />
# Initially, the number of magical girls grows in a quasi-linear trend. There are almost no witches, so there are few magical girl casualties. Kyubey still contracts them on a regular basis, so naturally the number grows at a near constant rate. Since less battling occurs, soul gems darken slowly, and the number of magical girls that become witches is comparably smaller. It can be showed that the magical girl population peaks at <math>\textstyle{t= { { \ln C - \ln (D+B) } \over {F+B-K} }}</math> with maximum population at approximately <math>\textstyle{ tC - {C \over {F+B-K} } }</math>. <br />
# At a critical point where the witch population begin exceeding the magical girl population (around ''t=300'' in this simulation). Increased opportunity of witch hunt starts having an effect on magical girls: magical girl population growth slows then begins to fall, while the witch population increases at an accelerated rate. Eventually the number of magical girls reach equilibrium at <math>\textstyle { C \over D+B }</math>, from this point on the witch population achieves exponential growth.<br />
<br />
==Comparison with the simple model==<br />
The simple model fails to account for this initial period of population development and reach equilibrium at a much faster time. However, the secondary period are comparable to a time-delayed version of the simple model's general solution. Therefore, conclusions reached by the simple model remain valid, although at a later time period than expected by the simple model.<br />
<br />
=Gradual dimming=<br />
While it is not explicitly stated in the show that a [[Soul Gem]] gradually dims over time, there are implications for it to be the case. In episode six, we see proof of a constantly active link, of limited range, between a Soul Gem and the body it is linked to. It is reasonable to accept that this link would be magical in nature, and therefore provide a slight but constant drain of the Soul Gem's power. This would allow for Kyubey to start the cycle without an initial number of witches or the possession of a non-canonical ability to directly create a Witch. Let's define a new variable, '''T''', to represent the proportions of magical girls that naturally become witch over time. This changes the model to:<br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta M(t) = C - (D + B) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t)) - T \times M(t)<br />
</math><br />
<br />
<math><br />
\Delta W(t) = F \times W(t) + (B - K) \times \mathrm{min}(W(t), M(t)) + T \times M(t)<br />
</math><br />
<br />
==Simulation==<br />
In the case ''K < B + F'', this model's results are similar to the second model. In case ''K > B + F'', the following behaviors can be witnessed:<br />

The dynamics of this model depends highly on the variable values and the initial populations used in each simulation:<br />
* In the special case when the witch population never significantly exceed the magical girl population, W(t) and M(t) eventually reach equilibrium when <math> \textstyle {W(t)={C \over D+K-F}}</math> and <math> \textstyle {M(t) = {C \over T} \times {K-F-B \over D+K-F}}</math>.<br />
* Otherwise the population dynamics will eventually stabilize with M(t) reach equilibrium at <math> \textstyle { {C \over D+B+T}}</math> and W grows exponentially. This equilibrium is analogous to the general solution of the simple model.<br />
<br />
The special case scenario provides a possibility for Kyubey to achieve sustainable farming without destroying the planet, but such a system is incredibly fragile and volatile.<br />

<hr />
<div>[[File:Runes_chart_expanded.gif|thumb|A reference sheet displaying runic alphabets.]]<br />
<br />
The runes that randomly appear in the Magic World have been solved. This page is meant to show the current works and discoveries in the domain, as well as the latest discussions and hypothesis.<br />
<br />
==History==<br />
[[File:runes_translated.jpg|thumb|Runes as of Episode 2]]<br />
[[File:Dramatic depiction of 4chan breaking the rune code.jpg|left|200px]]<br />
Initial efforts at codebreaking began by identifying each unique rune and assigning it a random letter for identification. The general (correct) assumption was that each rune corresponded to a letter in German but at the time it was still possible that the text was encrypted, a newly constructed language or even that they were just scattered completely at random. German was chosen as the most likely candidate because it appeared as direct quotes from Goethe's Faust and the Cottonballs/Pringlemen/Anthony's were observed to be chanting in German. Other candidate languages were: Japanese, English and Latin (due to the use of "Puella" in the title).<br />
<br />
A number of codebreaking methods were tried unsuccessfully. For example; attempts at identifying the letters through numerical analysis of their frequency failed, implying that the runic script was not really a language (see complications below). A more focused approach, taking a single word or short phrase and attempting to match an appropriate German word to it also failed due to large amount of possible matches.<br />
<br />
After some urging to use the Faust quotes as a [[wikipedia:Rosetta Stone|Rosetta Stone]], an anonymous found and [http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/44782290#p44786690 posted] a line of runes which matched one of those quotes. The runes and the German sign they matched are marked in red on the translation chart for episodes one and two.<br />
<br />
This discovery confirmed that the runic script was a direct substitution for German letters and provided an initial set of translated runes to work with. /a/ quickly got to work using this starting set to translate more lines and fill in the gaps. Within 21 hours of this discovery, the vast majority of runic text appearing in the first two episodes had been translated into German and English, all letters had been identified (except Q and X which are extremely rare in German, though they appeared later on).<br />
<br />
You can find the full discussion (900 posts long!) in threads [http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/44782290 #21], [http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/44790618 #22] and [http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/44797549 #23]<br />
<br />
===Trivia===<br />
*The runes are an original art by Inu Curry.<br />
*During the [[Aniplex USA Madoka Premiere]], production staff was very surprised when overseas fans cracked the runes. It was stated that even obsessive Japanese fans had not gone that far.<br />
<br />
==Complications==<br />
[[File:Runes_chart.gif|thumb|Rough, work-in-progress reference sheet showing the different rune alphabets as they were being deciphered.]]<br />
Throughout the translation process, efforts were hampered by several complications:<br />
<br />
;Runic fonts<br />
:There are at least three structurally distinct variants of the runic script. The most common variant is known as archaic and it is presumably the main set from which others are based on. The modern variant is a simplified version of the runes and corresponding letters are generally quite similar with only mild variation in their overall structure but a few letters, such as D, are completely different from each other. The third variant is constructed from elements found in musical scores and many of the runes look different.<br />
;Typos<br />
:Whether by mistake or on purpose (to frustrate codebreakers) approximately half of the lines of script contain one or more typos or misspelt words.<br />
;Spacing<br />
:Many lines of script have no spacing between the words or may be seperated in a deceptive manner. Also, some lines have multiple adjacent letters overlaid on the same space.<br />
<br />

=== Using runes on this wiki ===<br />
You can use runes on this wiki with the <nowiki>{{Runes}}</nowiki> template, e.g. <nowiki>{{Runes|DENY THE OBVIOUS, UPHOLD THE INANE}}</nowiki> becomes {{Runes|DENY THE OBVIOUS, UPHOLD THE INANE}} (use uppercase for archaic variant and lowercase for modern variant).<br />
<br />
To use musical runes, add <tt><nowiki>|variant=musical</nowiki></tt> to the template, eg. <nowiki>{{Runes|OKTAVIA VON SECKENDORFF|variant=musical}}</nowiki> becomes {{Runes|OKTAVIA VON SECKENDORFF|variant=musical}}. The font does not distinguish uppercase and lowercase letters, so either will produce the same results.<br />
<br />
The runic fonts are embedded on this wiki via CSS. This should make the fonts visible without installing them in the operating system, and is confirmed to work with recent versions of [http://www.mozilla.com Firefox], [http://www.opera.com Opera], [http://www.google.com/chrome Chrome] and [http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/products/ie/home Internet Explorer]. If you have trouble seeing the runes, update your browser or install the font files ([[#Archaic and Modern Font|MadokaRunes.ttf]] and [[#Musical Font|MadokaMusical.ttf]]) on your system.<br />

{{nihongo|'''Manga Time Kirara Magica'''|まんがタイムきらら☆マギカ|Manga Taimu Kirara☆Magika}} is a ''Puella Magi''-only magazine published bimonthly. Each issue contains information about the latest Madoka Magica releases, interviews with staff members, manga one-shots and serializations by various artists.<br />
<br />
''Kirara Magica'' was first announced in ''Manga Time Kirara Forward''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s June 2012 issue, and later in ''Manga Time Kirara Web'''s official ''Madoka Magica'' page. The magazine had its first issue released on June 8, 2012. Starting with the October 2013 issue, ''Manga Time Kirara Magica'' was published monthly until the end of 2013, where it was published bimonthly again. The February 2017 issue is the last issue to be released on a regular schedule. [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-02-09/manga-time-kirara-magica-moves-to-irregular-publication-schedule/.112026 Future issues of the magazine will be published irregularly].<br />
<br />
Note that ''[[Puella Magi Kazumi Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Suzune Magica]]'' were both serialized in ''Kirara Forward'' instead of ''Kirara Magica'', so no information about them will be given here. More information about the ''[[Puella Magi Oriko Magica]]'' installments and the spin-offs ''[[Puella Magi Tart Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Wraith Arc]]'' can be found at their own pages.<br />

{{nihongo|'''Manga Time Kirara Magica'''|まんがタイムきらら☆マギカ|Manga Taimu Kirara☆Magika}} is a ''Puella Magi''-only magazine published bimonthly. Each issue contains information about the latest Madoka Magica releases, interviews with staff members, manga one-shots and serializations by various artists.<br />
<br />
''Kirara Magica'' was first announced in ''Manga Time Kirara Forward''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s June 2012 issue, and later in ''Manga Time Kirara Web'''s official ''Madoka Magica'' page. The magazine had its first issue released on June 8, 2012. Starting with the October 2013 issue, ''Manga Time Kirara Magica'' was published monthly until the end of 2013, where it was published bimonthly again. The February 2017 issue is the last issue to be released on a regular schedule. [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-02-09/manga-time-kirara-magica-moves-to-irregular-publication-schedule/.112026 Future issues of the magazine will be published irregularly].<br />
<br />
Note that ''[[Puella Magi Kazumi Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Suzune Magica]]'' were both serialized in ''Kirara Forward'' instead of ''Kirara Magica'', so no information about them will be given here. More information about the ''[[Puella Magi Oriko Magica]]'' installments and the spin-offs ''[[Puella Magi Tart Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Wraith Arc]]'' can be found at their own pages.<br />

{{nihongo|'''Manga Time Kirara Magica'''|まんがタイムきらら☆マギカ|Manga Taimu Kirara☆Magika}} is a ''Puella Magi''-only magazine published bimonthly. Each issue contains information about the latest Madoka Magica releases, interviews with staff members, manga one-shots and serializations by various artists.<br />
<br />
''Kirara Magica'' was first announced in ''Manga Time Kirara Forward''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s June 2012 issue, and later in ''Manga Time Kirara Web'''s official ''Madoka Magica'' page. The magazine had its first issue released on June 8, 2012. Starting with the October 2013 issue, ''Manga Time Kirara Magica'' was published monthly until the end of 2013, where it was published bimonthly again. The February 2017 issue is the last issue to be released on a regular schedule. [http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-02-09/manga-time-kirara-magica-moves-to-irregular-publication-schedule/.112026 Future issues of the magazine will be published irregularly].<br />
<br />
Note that ''[[Puella Magi Kazumi Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Suzune Magica]]'' were both serialized in ''Kirara Forward'' instead of ''Kirara Magica'', so no information about them will be given here. More information about the ''[[Puella Magi Oriko Magica]]'' installments and the spin-offs ''[[Puella Magi Tart Magica]]'' and ''[[Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Wraith Arc]]'' can be found at their own pages.<br />
