It made history.

Here is Amazon’s top 10 Blu-ray preorders in Japan as of March 14, 2011, 10:00 am UTC+8:00.

This says it all. It's official.

The good source.

I’m quite impressed, Japan. Your top 10 Blu-ray preorders in Amazon alone shows that you love your culture more than anyone else’s. Heck, it not loaded with cheap imports (I bet those are what we’re going to have in the Philippines’ top 10 if we had Blu-ray players).

I can go on Ultimate Fanboy/Fangirl Mode from this pic alone.

This list is 100% anime and 50% Madoka Magica. When the season ends, I’m going to expect more increases in BD sales count. Seriously, in BD preorders alone, Madoka practically laughs at all the others.

"Watashi no Homura-shan ga konna ni Kawaii!"

Also, Madoka Magica threads have had the most love and hate going on in imageboards and Sankaku Complex(Just visited the site). You just have to love those hate comments (probably posted by way less than the number of hate comments altogether). It just means that the show has reached a legendary status. Thank you haters! You have just made me realize that you all have a guilty pleasure! Don’t be shy and just admit that you love the show. Otherwise, you shouldn’t be commenting on the topic, am I right?

On a side note, I think I’m posting WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT MADOKA. Please forgive me. It’s just that no other show has given me this much excitement and anticipation ever since… forever. I’ll go back to my usual operations once the series ends, though there may still be posts about Madoka here and there.

Epic. Period.

Pictures grabbed from safebooru. I don’t like to use the others, too many NSFW pics pop up for my taste.

  1. You need not be ashamed of your fandom for this show for it deserves all the praise it can get. Haters will haate simply because they’re shocked by the amount of praise so they brought back balance by trolling. In short, haters will deny it but the only reason they hate is because it’s their duty to do so and maintain balance in the force. There can’t only be love, hate is a necessity in life. We can’t have Yin without Yang. That doesn’t we have to care what they say. Let them troll.

    SayOko deserves a happy ending as well. Kyoko clearly has accepted her feelings for Sayaka and Sayaka, while in witch form must have sensed that Kyoko understood her so she gave up on the useless, whiny piano boy (whose only major scene was his super whiny mode) and must be snuggling with Kyoko in the afterlife…or perhaps they’ll pull a Mai-hime ending. I really do want a Mai-Hime ending for this show.

    Now if only the writers could make me dream come true and deliver Saki 2 to me.

    • The haters actually contribute to the success of the show, rather than discredit it. Most trolls are irrational, so most people would believe the opposite. It’s quite good, in a way.

      • As long they are treated as they should be…as trolls, it’s all good. Besides, we must continue looking forward to the final battle.

  2. When this season ends, everyone will be at each other’s throats trying to buy Madoka Magica memorabilia… or whatever remains off it. I for one will be competing for the Nendoroids. Worst case, every figurine released after this anime airs will be completely sold out within days… I doubt even amazon will have something to sell… Worst case, I doubt Wasabi Toys would sell the remaining stuff cheap X_X

    • I prefer to buy from Great Toys Online though. They have a stall in the Festival Mall at Alabang and they sell the stuff cheaper, too. You can pre-order the things as soon as they come out, and I think that there is no limit for reservations.

  3. Sono Hanabira 11: Madoka Magica edition.

    • My vision came true.

      • We can both dream can’t we? SayOko and MadoMura will fit perfectly in the school if they moved there. Perhaps the lovely Yuuna-sama can teach Homura all she needs to know in order to win Madoka over once and for all.

      • I don’t think the franchise will just end with Oriko Magica. I’m really hoping for official games and stuff. By the way. by the looks of Madoka, we can expect nothing less from it’s prequel.

      • The two pairs moving to Mikajo… What a brilliant idea! Maybe fans can do something about that…

    Kazumi Magica and Oriko Magica sound pretty wicked to me so I’ll be looking forward to them as well. With Spring around the corner and so many interesting shows to watch, will there be a show capable of competing with Madoka for the 2011 anime of the year? We have 4 seasons.

    • I sure hope so. Madoka Magica is awesome, and now that regulations are going to get tough come July, I hope this really puts pressure on the writers to write fantastic stories rather than generic rehashes. I look forward to Fate/Zero too as it’s also written by Gen Urobuchi.

  5. Also, when it comes to shoujo-ai, I can be a mad genius. That’s how much I love the genre.
    Check out my creation. Nothing special, just a short story that gets right to the point.

    Chaos Chronicles: Legend of the Heroines.

    Ai and Suki-chan have been battling against the dark forces of Ai’s former master, Professor Pacman. tired of his constant failures to defeat the clever lesbian beauty and her apprentice Suki-chan, Pacman came up with an ingenious plan to lure Suki-chan to his trap… PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SANDWICH!
    we move to Pacman’s laboratory located on Alcatraz island as he prepares his most diabolical experiment ever…transforming the innocently naughty Suki-chan into….THE DISCIPLE OF DISCORD!
    With his new apprentice, Pacman gives Dod command over his army as they spread 10 days of darkness all over Ai’s kingdom. Grandmaster Veggiehead can no longer stand the senseless destruction plaguing Ai’s kingdom so he sends five magic rings to special young people:
    -The Blue Orcale; with the power of water hogies.
    -Ayu nee-chan with the power of fire farts.
    -The Random One with the power to summon wind pixies.
    -Judge G with the power of ice Ts.
    -Team Captain Ai with the power of doomsday muffins.

    With their powers combined they set forth to face off against the omnipotent Paccy army led by DoD.

    During the battles, Ai confronts DoD and does her very best to remind DoD who she really is,: the best lady at Ai’s wedding that was ruined 5000 years ago by Professor Pacman, and Ai’s best bud. Suki-chan slowly returns to her normal self but Pacman pulls a fast one and shoots a scarab into Suki-chan’s neck with a bomb inside it.

    With DoD’s life hanging in the balance, Ai leaps into action and confronts Pacman, who is holding the detonator. DoD comes from behind and hits Ai with a giant potato.
    As Pacman readies his Carrot Saber, Blue Oracle steps in and dropkicks Suki-chan into Pacman. the kick was strong enough to knock the bomb out of Suki’s mouth an into Pacman. Enraged, Pacman has a Carrot Saber duel with Blue Oracle as Ayu-neechan betrays Ai and the restored Suki. “In the name of the Paccy, I will rule the world alongside my beloved Pacman. You will not stand in my way A-Team! Prepare to DIE!

    fire the flaming photon poots! A barrage of farts and muffins collide as Ai and Ayu duke it out in a stinky street fight as Suki is unwilling to punch her own sister.

    Meanwhile Blue Oracle and Pacman continue their battle as Judge G is busy bodyslamming demons with Random One who helps him find women to turn into lesbian succubi.

    Ayu’s love for Pacman is so strong that she prepares her strongest flaming fart of disarray and targets Ai, sadly hitting Suki-chan instead. Ai screams in pain because of the supposed Suki-chan’s passing. Ayu stops for a minute before continuing the battle against Ai. now it’s personal! how could you slay your own flesh and blood!?

    After 5 minutes of back and forth action, Ai is about to knock out Ayu and then work on resotring her sanity (Because any woman who would fall for Professor Pacman is sick. Evil cannot be loved for they will corrupt you. However, Pacman knocks Blue Oracle into ai and they both fall unconscious. Ayu looks at her hero Pacman as he takes her hand, raises her up and piledrives her onto concrete. “Foolish girl. I like my women raw and full of potatoes, not bacon!” Barely able to stand, Ayu throws her ring to ai and falls loses consciousness as a tear flows down her face. Ai and Blue Oracle team up to take down Pacman once and for all, but Pacman calls forth his trump card NEUTRO!

    The otther two guys, with their newly acquired army of lesbian succubi as they combine their energies to form the Yuri Megazord!

    “Cue epic robot vs robot battle”

    Neutro pulls a fast one and hits the YM’s power core, dismantling the robot as multiple succubi help the duo down as they’re meaninglessly kissing Ai’s shiny forehead.

    Blue Oracle is left with no choice but to use her most powerful attack: “Hyper-dimensional Hydro Beam!” Ai also launches her strongest attack: “Black Hole Giga Corn Muffin of Beelzebub!” The already weakened Neutro was no match for this combined force as Pacman falls down and is crushed by the rubble.

    the battle seems to have ended until….

    Pacman rises from the rubble, badly injured as looks with an infuraiated expression at his two adversaries. Do you know why I ruined your marriage to Asamoya, Ai? Because she is the goddess of muffins. I LOATHE MUFFINS! I COULDN’T HAVE TWO WOMEN WHO LOVE MUFFINS BECOME ONE AND ENTER THE KINGDOM OF IONO-SAMA TO FIND THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED POTION WHICH ALLOWS TWO WOMEN TO BREED! I have Asamoya in my clutches. If you want to see her again Ai, surrender to me and become my apprentice once again!

    What will Ai’s answer be?

    5000 years of searching and suffering…all because of MUFFINS?!

    “DOLPHIN PAAAAUUUUUNCH!”

    “You FOOL!”

    “FALCON PAAAAUUUUUNCH!”

    The colliding power was so strong that it tore a dimensional rift, revealing the location of Asamoya’s hibernation capsule.

    NO! YOU CAN’T HAVE HER! I WON’T ALLOW MUFFINS TO BE MANUFACTURED AGAIN!

    Ai quickly rushes toward Asmoya as Blue Oracle headbutts Pacman, stunning him long enough for Ai to take her clothes off and turn into a strawberry shortcake. Asamoya’s nose twitches as the cake’s scent is strong enough to penetrate the capsule. Asamoya’s eyes open up as she begins to drool and breaks the capsule, embracing the cake, later turning back to Ai.

    5000 years of traveling through time and space, searching for the white maiden.
    The maiden, whose hair as black as the night sky, glitters with awe in the evening under the starlit heavens.
    The maiden, whose eyes open a portal to one’s divine paradise by gazing into these jewel colored eyes.
    The maiden, whose face can be defined as a divine beauty with a smile that brings an eternal bliss to one so relaxed,.
    The maiden, whose hands are gifted with enchanted magic that if touched by these hands will grant one a wish to a Caribbean cruise of delight.
    The maiden, whose legs grant life to infinite flowers with each step she takes and when she runs an entire enchanted forest is created.
    The maiden, whose skin as exquisite as the sweet peach never ceases to fill one with heat and glee.
    The maiden, whose mind spans infinitely like the incredible universe we can only dream of.
    The maiden, whose heart is as pure as the deep blue seas, filled with so much hope and serenity.
    The maiden, whose spirit is so full of virtue and courage that one is always struck with awe upon gazing at this miraculous belle.
    Oh celestial maiden, whose skin is as soft as ice and whose dress is as white as soothing snow, how amazing it is to have known of the existence of one as glorious as ye.
    When one sees thou, they see an angel who is gracefully spreads her wings and flies joyfully up above the world so high like a diamond in the sky.
    When you flap your wings, golden pixels of happiness are spread all across this majestic Earth given to us by our almighty CREATOR.
    Thou art a gifted belle, who has only begun to show all life around us how magnificent and beautiful thou art.
    Oh White maiden who glows peacefully and prosperously, how one wishes nothing but great success and eternal happiness in thine future together with I, your beloved muffin betrothed.

    Blue Oracle watches as the two women in love embrace one another and connect with their lips ever so apple red.
    Pacman out of nowhere warps in and steals blue Oracle’s soul, taking her life.

    Ai and Asamoya look at the massacre brought forth by the mad genius as they combine their power to create the Genki-Muffin! A corn flavored muffin with strawberry filling the size of a meteor…”drools”.
    Pacman tries to spear both Ai and Asamoya, but all of a sudden, his entire body is frozen…
    WHAT!? ….YOU TWO?!

    Wait..why do I sense the presence of two yet only see one being in front of me?

    I am neither Suki-chan nor Ayu…I..am…SAYUKI!

    Sayuki vs Pacman.

    “Imagine epic fight scene for 4 minutes.” Genki-Muffin is closer.

    “WHAT?! No, it can’t end this way! I never got to see AVATAR 8000: THE MUSICAL or played The Muffinpuff Ai Sisters Playstation 10 game! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    Crushed by a 10 megaton muffin…what a way to go.

    Ai and Asamoya, completely wiped out from the battle, approach the new warrior Sayuki, who immediately reverts back to Suki-chan and Ayu.
    “How did you do that? How did Suki come back to life?”
    “Well, I barely managed to regain some of my consciousness as I crawled to the charred remains of Suki-chan. I used my remaining power and kissed her lips, transferring some of my life force into her. As for the union…himitsu.”

    Wait, what about Blue Oracle?
    ….

    “10 days later”
    Here lies the great Blue Oracle, who fought valiantly in the final battle against the mad tyrant. A valiant heroine who put her life on the line in the name of truth, justice and the Iono-sama way. A true warrior, a true heroine, a true friend.

    Ayu, Suki-chan, Judge G, Random One, Ai, Asamoya, Aimoya, Asai and Ai Jr. stare at the memorial of the legendary heroine, Full Blue Phoenix, the oracle.

    Noone will ever forget the battle where so many lives were lost, so many have suffered and a noble ally sacrificed her life to save us all. All for the sake of removing muffins from existence…

    The End.

    • Wow, that’s a rather… interesting story. I sure got quite a few laughs from it. Maybe we can collaborate and make fanfics! Haha!

      • It just came to my head while posting on a thread about yuri weddings. The result is the story you just read.

        Umm, can someone explain to me what the big deal is about Charlotte other than it being Mami’s executioner? I just watch the witches once and that’s it. I personally don’t get the obsession over Charlotte. Heck I didn’t even know it had a name until you posted about it dood.

      • There are many speculations about who Charlotte is. One of the more popular ones being that she’s a cancer patient of the hospital where her grief seed hatched. Also, she seems to love cheese, but can only make candy and cake (Does Mami look like cheese to her!?). And about her name, the witches’ name are displayed at the start of every battle in runic text.

  6. I hope SHAFT animates Charlotte’s story or the other witches who were once Puella Magi. They have already established the foundation so all it needs would be a new flavour, a different twist, experienced from a different perspective. Oriko and Kazumi Magica sounds appealing. Kazumi Magica’s translated chapters felt tame btw in such that it feels lacking when compared to the anime’s brutal nature but I’d like to see the established world of PMMM from a different perspective so I do hope SHAFT would juice this franchise with more stories in the future.

    • I’m not being too optimistic about milking more from the franchise than what they should do. I mean, look at K-On!… it’s nice two seasons in and with a movie to follow, but I think it is sort of getting old. With two new spin-off mangas to come, I really wish that the authoirs would stop destroying something by milking the hell out of it. Also, I think that they’re going to let us know everything there is in the Madoka Universe with the anime, manga and spin-offs. I doubt that they’re going to destroy such a wonderful series with mindless profit making.

      Official games and extras are nice, but I don’t think I would want another series. Not that it’s not going to work, but I really think that it’s not a good idea.

    Such attention to detail. Bravo Afkeroge, bravo dood! I need to look up more facts next time as you did. I had a strong feeling that each Witch’s Other World had a sense of symbolism to it, which is why it’s still awesome that one of the witch’s issues involved clotheslines.

    • Watching it all over again once the series ends will prove to be very rewarding.

    Hmm, nice list. Oh wait, 1/2 of it is Madoka Magica! Well, I can’t say it doesn’t deserve it.

    • As of the time that I wrote this comment, Madoka still occupies the top 5 slots. That HAS to say something. ^^

      Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting.

    Is that Madoka from 1 to 5? Impressive and not too surprising.

    • The sheer power compels me to buy DVDs. Too bad we don’t have BluRay players here.

    Thank you for some other wonderful post. The place else could anybody get that type of info in such a perfect manner of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am at the search for such info.
