::Being a fan of Equilibrium myself, I have to say the plot of Equilibrium doesn't have anything to do with Madoka Magica unless we start pulling some meter-long worms out of its tiny nose. At most, the references are in Mami's gunkata. Where Equilibrium is the struggle of one man to free humanity from the torpor they've inflicted on themselves by denying their emotions, Madoka Magica is the struggle of one (arguably two) girls to give destiny the finger and make it through things alive. Both series do indeed end with the main character shattering the entire established system, but this kind of ending is extremely, extremely common among media where the main character is fighting against a government or ruleset. I wouldn't credit Equilibrium to this.

Page is missing a little bit too much.

Equilibrum

I hear that Urobuchi is a fan of Equilibrium, (he even wrote a short fanfiction, Jouka no Monshou). Rumor has it that the film influenced Urobuchi to make Homura a gun-wielding badass. Any ideas or evidence to confirm this?? --Mutopis 08:44, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

The fight scenes are indeed pretty familiar (the whole "one-shot guns that you throw afterwards" that Mami uses for instance appears at least once). Aside from that, the resemblance didn't really strike me, that film is basically 1984 revisited.
Oh I just forgot another resemblance in that the MC becomes a quasi-god at the end. --Homerun-chan 10:52, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Being a fan of Equilibrium myself, I have to say the plot of Equilibrium doesn't have anything to do with Madoka Magica unless we start pulling some meter-long worms out of its tiny nose. At most, the references are in Mami's gunkata. Where Equilibrium is the struggle of one man to free humanity from the torpor they've inflicted on themselves by denying their emotions, Madoka Magica is the struggle of one (arguably two) girls to give destiny the finger and make it through things alive. Both series do indeed end with the main character shattering the entire established system, but this kind of ending is extremely, extremely common among media where the main character is fighting against a government or ruleset. I wouldn't credit Equilibrium to this.
