Hey, good to have at least one native Japanese speaker among us!
No problem for the poor english, we'll reword your contributions if needed (maybe you'll get better at english as you contribute too; that's how I learned it at least).
Anyway, it can be pretty useful to have someone that can translate/explain stuff for us -- I think we'll have a couple of things to ask you ... --Homerun-chan 18:58, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll also learn English here :) It's my pleasure to contribute enriching the wiki.

Church of Madoka

I will ask the question on everyone's mind: How established is the Church of Madoka in Japan? Has there been an election of Bishops? What happened to the apostle that applied to Fukushima? Prima 23:26, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
At Fukushima, there is critical disaster at very limited region. Many people in Tohoku and Fukushima might enjoy Madoka Magica. However, Japanese government seems not to work effectively. I'm sorry, don't know the activity of "Church of Madoka". I'll tell you if I found information for this.
Don't worry too much about the "Church of Madoka". It's basically a group of fans that made a new religion based on MadoMagi's finale, and prima seems devoted a lot to it. You shouldn't take it too seriously IMO (sorry if I hurt your feelings prima :) )
On an unrelated note, could you sign your comments with --~~~~? It makes the talkpage a lot easier to read this way. Thanks! --Homerun-chan 07:41, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
thanks. I see. As you may know, most of Japanese are Buddhist. We need build up "Temple of Madoka" as soon as possible, and act something good at Tohoku :) --Nox 10:05, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
One of the good points of Japanese culture is "Religion Free", I think. Maybe most of people who believe each (any?) religions could be enjoyed MadoMagi and other Anime (on Region Free Players). No more war for religions. --Nox 10:05, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

The game you posted on your profile page is quite famous, it even has its own page on this wiki and a partially fan-translated English version ;) --KFYatek 10:58, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

I see. What I should say in this case? "Gyafun" in Japanese :)

QB's treatment of girls

I've written a bit about Kyubey's pattern of speech, ie. his usage of 僕(ぼく), 君(きみ), and not using honorifics or polite verbs. Could you check if I haven't misinterpreted something? It's at the bottom of the Kyubey#Trivia section. --KFYatek 12:20, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

ありがとうございます! I reworded your contribution quite a bit, but I hope I haven't changed the meaning of your clarifications. The "tags" theory about names is also interesting, thanks! --KFYatek 16:59, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for correction. I can learn much of natural English expression. This is benefit for me. And I'm interested in the first "foreign" interpretation. I agree this. --Nox 17:10, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
Additional Trivia of 九兵衛: 「八兵衛」 (Hachi(8)bē) is a famous character in a drama, 「十兵衛」 (Jū(10)bē) is a famous Samurai. You may know. "QB" is the most usual expression on Internet communities. --Nox 17:10, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
For addressing their name, first name or family name without honorifics are commonly used in close relationship (generally the first name is closer). But full name without honorifics is very unusual especially in recent years, and oppose to polite. --Nox 17:25, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Oriko Magica

Well, the first thing I'd like to ask is whether Oriko Magica will be a prequel (ie. a story before the main series) or a sequel (ie. after the main series). I always thought it's going to be a prequel, but recent edits suggest it's a sequel. Could you clarify it, based on some official info? --KFYatek 19:19, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

I think there is no official announce, but the "Oriko Magica" may focuses the Mami, Kyoko and other girls. They were killed in the "Madoka" episode. So that it should be prequel before episode 12. However, now it can be sequel story as you say.
A release of the first comic is delayed due to delay of airing "Madoka". Wait the release!

Yuri evidence at the end of Ep.12

  • I don't agree the comparison of KnM Madoka ver.jpg as evidence of Yuri. Yes the poses of them, but them faces look quite different especially eyes. Their eyes have tendresse, affection and/or respective love. No romantic depiction on their face in not only Episode 12 but also the others. No Yuri factor.
  • In case of Sayaka and Kyoko, it is more possible, but I feel Kyoko respect to Sayaka who has fought against Witches with dreams and hopes, and Kyoko remember her original motivation. Kyoko might get a chance to die as hopeful girl with Sayaka, and avoid to become herself to Witch. This well up my eyes.
Well, you know... objectively speaking, you're probably right. I'm not into yuri, and I didn't find this particular scene an "evidence". However, when someone is into yuri, then it's more than enough for him. It's just... a different way of looking :D I hope Mutopis will comment here :D Though he seems to be more of a KyoSaya than HomuMado fan ;) --KFYatek 19:03, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Your yuri-goggles are broken. Here, take these. - Prima 21:05, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
You mean these? BrickBreak 21:15, 29 April 2011 (UTC
Oh, you told me how to embed small images! I like this. --Nox 23:39, 29 April 2011 (UTC)


As some of you may know, English is contained to curriculum over 10 years in junior high, high and also university. I spend lot of my learning time to sleep. And I've never use English except of very limited world in my business in my life. There's a lot of ways I'd regret this... --Nox 00:23, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Sound Track CD

I love mami's theme. I want to get CD, but it can be got as extra CD of Bluray Vol.2... It can play with Bulk BD-ROM drive and normal PC? --Nox 16:33, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

The soundtrack will be a normal CD perhaps, so it will play anywhere you want. As for the BD, it'll play in a PC's BD-ROM drive, but you need some playback software like PowerDVD or WinDVD with Blu-ray support. It was probably bundled with your drive (or PC, if the drive was there since the beginning), at least it was with mine. --KFYatek 18:16, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. Another friend tell me PS3 is one of the good candidates as Bluray Player. But it will not be Region Free. It is important for imported DVD to play... :) --Nox 23:24, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Extra Communication Channel

Some of you have twitter activities or other communication channel? --Nox 16:33, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

There is the IRC channel if you wanna talk with us live, but I'm not sure how many people will be there when you log in (well it's pretty much always active anyway). Most of us have other nicknames on the IRC than here though.
Aside from that, no twitter account or other "Web 2.0" means of communication on my side, I go with mails and sometimes Skype. I'd still be glad to chat with you though. Dunno about the others. --Homerun-chan 18:57, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
