Wow, what an incredible 12 episodes it's been. I'm going to be perfectly honest, I haven't felt the urge to cry to an anime since the first season of pokemon when Ash released his butterfree (I was 10 back then). Even though I knew how the story would end since episode 6, the finale still totally blew me away.


So, some speculations on the final scene, as it was confusing as hell and there are a few theories already. Homura is marching into her final battle, her soul gem almost depleted. Before the hammer fell, she hears Madoka saying "keep it up". So Homura enter/win her final battle and be cleansed by Madoka. Good ending.

This is a great piece! I liked this anime a lot ^-^
Just finished watching the 12th episode now, and it was certainly as confusing as you say it is. If they're not fighting witches, what were they fighting (The weird monk-things)? Also, How did Sayaka die in the new world without Madoka? Did she just exhaust her energy and disappeared?

Still, it was one heck of an emotional ride. I pretty much liked Mami since her death was the most tragic (next to Madoka's maybe?), but Homura definitely got to me from the bad-ass use of military hardware, her devotion to Madoka, as well as the emotional roller-coaster she had to go through, with the time travel and all :D

The anime was definitely epic and made me really think about the way thing are in the world (or something fancy along those lines). Probably the biggest dose of psychological anime I've had since Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I feel this did psychological stuff better because NGE's ending made no sense. If you like this, you might want to look Persona 4 the animation.

Demons. They are fighting demons now.
And I think Sayaka's death was explained.... I can't remember the reason at the momment. Well I needed an excuse to watch the whole thing again anyways.
You were my best friend. Now you're my girlfriend.
That episode was epic; I love this piece!!!

omg. *---*
this is perfect! ♥ ♥ ♥
I loved this show from start to finish. And the ending was hinted at several times by Kyubey, but no one believed it to be literally like that – Madoka becoming god-like and rewriting the laws of the universe.

Very nice pic you got here. I like how you used all the episode titles in it.

Oh no, I totally saw it coming, but wasn't expecting the ending to be quite so dramatic. I only realized after I finished this piece that all the episode titles actually link up in a sensical and coherent way. A very well put-together series.
