Shadow of Memories

From the Homura Residence article: "The exterior view of Homura's residence resembles a scene from Shadow of Memories (Shadow of Destiny for North America). Interestingly it went through several title changes before release, among them The Day and Night of Walpurgisnacht, Days of Walpurgis, and Time Adventure." It would be helpful if this claim is investigated, and more evidencce is provided. --Fallacies 19:19, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Faust

Faust I contains a scene called Walpurgisnachtstraum ( in [ ] equvivalent person in the anime: Mephistopheles [Kyubey] notices that Faust [Madoka] relation to him is getting lose because of Faust´s love to Gretchen(A women Faust got pregnant) [Sayaka]. He tries to get him motivated again by showing him an great, amazing and fantasitc event on the Hexenberg (witch´s mountain). Meanwhile Gretchen snaps and kills her baby [=Sayaka snaps and becomes a witch]. The event is the following: Many witches try to get on the Brocken (a mountain in Germany) where the devil visits them. Faust tries to get on the top because he thinks that there some riddles can be solved. But Mephistopholes convinces him to dance with a witch. Faust stops the dance when a red mouse falls out of the mouth of the witch and a "pretty child" appears that reminds him to Gretchen with a red cord around her neck which reminds to her future execution (for killing the child [for becoming a witch])To distract Faust Mephistopholes leads him to a hill where a play should be shown (i tried to translate the text from the german wikipedia)

Added. I tried to reword it a bit but I'm not a native english speaker and I haven't read Faust either so that wasn't easy. Anyone more knowledgeable feel free to make it more sexy. That being said, I read on Wikipedia that Walpurgisnacht also appears in Faust part. II. Is it relevant? --Homerun-chan 20:55, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

as much as i know the witch Erichtho appears and mixes up the preolympical time, the roman time and the Greek War of Independence (which happend in the time Faust plays). Faust gains new power through this while Mephitsopholes feels irritated and find reletives (other demons)between the antic creatures [may be a hint that other kyubey like creatures will appear if this scene is used in madoka magika

note: since there are Faust 1 & 2, maybe madoka magika will get a second season
