Since the magical girl that greatly resembles Charlotte does not look at all like Nagisa, what if Walpurgisnacht's minions are gijinka-ized versions of the magical girls of the witches? Meaning that they are the original magical girls, but their outfits are similar to their witch forms. That's the only thing that I can think of that can account for the Charlotte-looking magical girl not looking like Nagisa. -[[user:AntMan9751|<span style="font-size:15px;line-height:19px;font-family:{{#switch:{{{variant}}}|musical=MadokaMusical|#default=MadokaRunes}};">ANTHONY</span>]] 02:53, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Now good luck identifying them all... the only one we can be certain is that the second from the left is Elly. BrickBreak 20:00, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm willing to bet that the fourth from the left is Charlotte (her pigtails resemble the witch's "candy-wrapper" ears), but let's hope that the main website attaches the silhouettes with the witches. Momoism 20:18, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
Fifth from left is Elsa Maria, I think. Just going off the hair style. 90.227.151.181 20:54, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I added that the third from the left might be Gisela (her curved hairstyle resembles her Witch's Kiss), but we can't tell exactly which witches from the series appear here. There are only ten unidentified magical girls in the screencap, whereas nine witches (not including Oktavia and Kriemhild) appeared in the show and three more were given informational cards. Momoism 21:30, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
One lineup guess proposed on /a/: Gisela, Elly, Isabel, Patricia, Gertrud, Mami, Homura, Madoka, Sayaka, Kyouko, Suleika, Uhrmann, Albertine, Charlotte, Roberta

[1] One possible permutation. Prima 21:56, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

  • [2] My interpretation. Here's the "logic" (for the not-shown witches, I tried connecting them to familiars, and admittedly Elsa Maria's justification is that I drew her similarly): [3] [4] [5]/[6]/[7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] MsDevin92 02:06, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Also, I think it's notable that the silhouettes in Episode 11 appeared to be serving Walpurgisnacht. Their shiny appearance sort of resembled corrupted Soul Gems. Does Walpurgis turn the shadows of doomed Puella Magi into her familiars? Does she get more power for each defeated witch? MsDevin92 04:00, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

I will state the obvious here because I felt it was needed: There are only 10 unidentified figures, while there are twelve unidentified witches. Three witches weren't shown in the anime, so it might be two of them, or that it's actually all three of them and we have an extra figure that never appeared in the anime. The fact that the figure on the left is cut off might indicate that there are more figures on the left side. -- Universalperson 01:01, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

The fact that there's two an not three missing makes it kind of a gamble. But I agree with you, there should be more to the left: I guess we'll have to wait for Word of God/Blu-Ray/alternative airing to see the whole picture. BrickBreak 01:05, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Charlottecomparison.PNG

A comparison chart showing one of the silhouettes with the matching Walpurgis familiar, and Charlotte, who has a nose the same shape as the silhouette's tail, similar hair, and a resemblance to the wand. KM 20:10, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I made some image compilations on my opinion as to which witch matches which silhouette. Here they are: [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] -they are in no particular order. And I agree with the above user about Charlotte's possible Puella Magi form. That's very strong visual evidence, so I decided not to make a compilation for Charlotte.

GertrudPaintingsCloseup.PNG

I like those Albertine, Suleika, and Izabel ones. Here's closeups of Gertrud's paintings from the BD. This portrait on the door has a woman wearing a bow around her neck. I'm not sure what to make of the orange painting.

Looks like Elly, Charlotte, and Walpurgis are settled. Since the Ika Musume one is right next to the main characters, like Walpurgis, it's probably another witch that was prominent in the show, like Elsa Maria or Gertrud. KM 00:14, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

PN 05.jpg

This sketch from the production notes shows the Walpurgis familiars with more detail. For example, the one suspected to be Charlotte has bangs similar to Charlotte's and polka-dotted tights.KM 02:10, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Seeing how the Production Note shows the silhouettes in more detail, perhaps we should see if we can upload pictures of the pages of the silhouettes after the Production Note is released later this month. 96.238.30.200 00:28, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Assuming the scans show up or someone contributes them, sure. --randomanon 00:35, 3 September 2011 (UTC
Madoka07.jpg
I managed to find a picture that has three Puellae Magi from the ending picture. One of them is one Puella Magi that is thought to be Charlotte. The top one I believe to be Gisela because of ViralJuggernaut's speculah and the circular object in the middle of the Puella Magi's apron(?) bears some resemblance to the large gear in the center of Gisela's body. I believe the one at the bottom (the last one in the ending picture) may be Uhrmann due to it's feral-ish appearance, which can be taken as canine by some. It may also be Roberta for the same reasons ViralJuggernaut sees so. 96.238.30.200 04:06, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

In the PN 05 image, the girl next to what I strongly think is Charlotte could perhaps be Uhrmann because her dress matches that of her minions. In the latest PN picture, I think the last two could be Suleika because the attire is mismatched (dressing in the dark to go with the speculah that she was blind *wink wink*) I retract my statement that she could be Roberta because it was revealed that she was indeed an older woman when she became a witch. Was there anything more in the PN about the witches or even the guidebook? ViralJuggernaut

Ah, perhaps what the guidebook says about the design labirynths is a clue to their wishes? Charlotte's sounds like she wished for her dying mother to eat cheesecake instead of curing her disease. ViralJuggernaut
Those were likely early concepts that were changed later in development; for example the "train" barrier which probably became Oktavia -- Universalperson

BD

Just bumping this to ask that someone upload the BD version of this screenie. Eager to know if there are more girls to the left, afterall. --BrickBreak 03:00, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Here. Did not crop, BD shows less. --randomanon 03:41, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Quite disappointing :/
Thanks, anyway. --BrickBreak 08:06, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Production Note

These might be helpful. --randomanon 04:11, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Since the magical girl that greatly resembles Charlotte does not look at all like Nagisa, what if Walpurgisnacht's minions are gijinka-ized versions of the magical girls of the witches? Meaning that they are the original magical girls, but their outfits are similar to their witch forms. That's the only thing that I can think of that can account for the Charlotte-looking magical girl not looking like Nagisa. -ANTHONY 02:53, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
