Front view of Homura's residence
A name plaque that says 'Homura' in Hiragana. Presumably the kanji for 'Akemi' is offscreen.
Apartment interior. Three of the four walls in the room appear to be a digital displays.
Candlesticks and pillars along the fourth wall.

The residence of Homura Akemi. An aging, European-style building at a Y intersection in a district surrounded by skyscrapers. It is unclear if this is a new building or part of the original town that didn't undergo urban redevelopment. Contrastingly, the interior of Homura's apartment is ultra-modern, and the walls appear to be digital displays of documents pertaining to witches. There is a decoration on the ceiling made of clockwork, and the 'desktop' within the digital display features a pair of swinging, bladed pendulums. Along a fourth, unseen wall, there is a row of candlesticks and pillars.

Walpurgisnacht Documents

The following is a gallery of the documents on Homura's wall display.

Speculah and Observations

  • The apartment layout might represent a clock of some sort, in line with Homura's time manipulation abilities.
  • Because the appearance of the apartment interior is quite surreal and bears a superficial resemblance to a Witch's Labyrinth, some viewers have proposed that Homura might have refurbished or reconstituted her flat with magic.
  • 2ch has referred to the residence as 「ほむホム」 (homu homu). The first "homu"("ほむ") refers to Homura herself, and the latter comes from the word "home," usually pronounced "ホーム" in Japanese.
  • The shadow of a pendulum resembles a similar-looking execution method appeared in "The Pit and the Pendulum" written by Edgar Allen Poe.First pointed out in Dcinside
