Madoka makes her choice Boy is it a doozyI won t go into exactly whatmakes her choice Boy is it a doozyI won t go into exactly what but just that Madoka makes the greatest sacrifice possible and in the process saves all magical girls She doesn t die but it isn t necessarily fun what happens to her either Yet she doesn t care The part that gets me is the pureness of her love and self sacrifice her Christ like attitude for Urobochi admits she is a Christ figureMami You e not just granting hope You Sisi: Empress on Her Own re becoming hope itselfMadoka If someone says it s wrong to hope I will tell them that theye wrong every time I could tell them that countless timesThe way that she saves the day and then comforts a distraught Homura is one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen or ead I brings the same sense of joy and if this makes sense at all happy touching sadness that the sacrifice of Who accepts Kyubey's offer of power Having watched countless Magical Girls sacrificed for the larger aims of his people Kyubey is only interested in securing girls to Slan brings in Narnia or the speeches in The Lord of the Rings It eminds me of the best "Of Who We Are And " who we are and greatness of my GodYou see Urobochi has a nickname Urobutcher He is not known for his happy endings Yet he wanted to see some joy in the world He wanted to find a way of looking at the world that brings hope He settled on Christianity for the philosophical and allegorical basis of his storyIn the midst of this despair only the selfless sacrifice of one person can save the day Only the one who is a picture of the Savior can make a difference Only that hope offered can save the day This is a picture of how in the The Art of Slow Writing: Reflections on Time, Craft, and Creativity real world Christ offers us hope via his sacrifice for our sins thus saving our souls And yes the metaphors are this obvious if you think of it but are still subtle enough if you do not I have seen subtle messages and blatant messages in fiction butarely have I seen messages that were BOTH subtle and blatant at the same timeOh to be sure there are other bases as well From classical literature like Faust to The Little Mermaid the original Hans Christian Anderson story not the Disney version among many others All of these are woven together to form a tale of sadness and defeat but then of triumph and hope emerging victorious in the endI can t think of many other stories that show us such despair and hope defeat and triumph and point to Christ so well as this one does I can not The Life of Samuel Johnson recommend it heartily enoughThis is one of those examples of how what CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien called the One True Myth coming through in other myths Good stuff Ugh this has such a beautiful ending I don t know whether to be sad or super happy but I love it all the same Iemember crying at the anime a bit tbh haha The character development is amazing and how everything ties in and comes together omg I just love it view spoiler It always gets me how Homura met Madoka sooooo many times and she s her best friend but Madoka didn t know gahhh and at the end where she tells her she knows it s always so sad but I m so happy for them Also imagine loving a friend so much you eplay the same month over and over to save her and it ends up making her
the most powerful magical gi 25 starsI eally enjoyed the last chapter and esolution thought it was beautifullymost powerful magical gi 25 starsI eally enjoyed the last chapter and esolution thought it was beautifully As for the est though 25 starsI Tigers in Normandy really enjoyed the last chapter andesolution thought it was beautifully As for the Presidential Secrecy and the Law rest though were pages that were difficult to follow with the lack of white space There was too much going on in some panels That being said it was still enjoyable and a good take on magical girls and the dark part of those contracts I just didn t love it like I hoped Still enjoy the story but it does fall off a little bit Also still have a hard time following the action but if you veead the first two you should finish out the series Will Madoka Magica ever not make me cry Probably notThis is the third time I ve eadwatched this story through the whole way and it still gets to me As I said in my first eview of volume one the manga loses some of the magic that the animation and music provide in the show But the manga is just as fun And I definitely value it for the fact that I could carefully Hume on Religion read anderead some of Kyubey s explanations that kind of confused me when I heard them in the anime I definitely understand the plot better having Master Plots: Race and the Founding of an American Literature, 1787-1845 read it at my own paceKyubey also seemed even creepier in the manga than he did in the animeOverall 55 stars I love Madoka and Homura so much This is just the story I needed toead these days With America falling towards fascism it s hard to hold onto hope Madoka is a City Schools: Lessons from New York reminder of theesilience of women and the importance of optimism in the face of adversity Love love love it. Hat end and Madoka is left with his chilling eminder that she too is destined to be a Magical Girl of incredible power Can Madoka and her friends escape this tragic fa. .
Wow that was a great ending I ended up loving this dark take on the magical girl theme and I think the ending was perfectly bittersweet like Homura s backstory The art could get a little scratchy and hard to follow in the action seuences though I ve heard the anime is even better which is getting me very excited to see it Such a good ending to a wonderfully darkcute series YOU NEED TO READ THIS This is for all three volumes of this series though I tried to not put too many plot spoilers in this The Story Within review While I did notead these manga in
Order I Read The Different Story FirstI First Resorts: Pursuing Pleasure at Saratoga Springs, Newport, Coney Island read the different story first it was probably supposed to go last I had already seen the anime and movies so I have an idea of how twisted this story is supposed to be That will probably shockeaders the most if they aren t Not going to lie here but the manga version of the end of this series is nearly as breathtaking as the one aired God Gave Me a Mulligan: A Journalist's Life in War and Peace right after the Great Kanto Tohoku Earthuak No matter how many times Ievisit this story I always end up crying Madoka is such an intricate story there are layers upon layers waiting to be peeled and going through it again always makes me want to think and write thousands of words on the characters the complexity of the story how things manage to link into each other and no matter how these girls try to do good it almost always backfires in the end because the universe needs balance The concept of hope and despair and its continuous way of feeding into each other is Elephant Slaves and Pampered Parrots: Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century Paris really interesting Even the ending is not truly an ending and gives the impression that this is a cycle that no one no matter how powerful can break And that s kind of scary Ineviewing this third and final volume of the English translation of the manga adaptation of Puella Magi Madoka Magica I will be discussing the overall story and the themes thereinI would argue that this is one of the most vivid examples of Christian symbolism ever in fiction I will get to why I say that later on in the The American Academic Profession: Transformation in Contemporary Higher Education review Warning that there are spoilers coming upBefore we get to the story itself let s discuss the aesthetic aspects The art work is kinda strange It doesn t capture the otherworldiness and Lovecraftian horror aspects of the witch s barriers as the anime does But that is to be expected given the limitations of black and white drawings on a page versus moving full color drawings done in a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT animation style than that of theest of the showFor this The Rise and Fall of the Biopsychosocial Model: Reconciling Art and Science in Psychiatry reason the sense of despair horror and in the end triumph is not captured nearly as well in the panels of the manga as in the anime But the basic gist of the story does come throughOh yes I called it Lovecraftian Iead a nice summary of the story as a Lovecraftian story in magical girl clothes or something like that Why that is with the chilling horror of the truth of the world the hopelessness and impossible but NOT necessarily truly impossible chance of victory will be obvious as you The Arena: An Offering to Contemporary Monasticism read onThe story begins with a young girl Kaname Madoka having aather vivid dream whereby she sees a girl in desperate straights and a funny looking creature offering the power to prevent this from happeningThen she wakes up and goes about her day Yes she is troubled by the dream but thinks it is your typical though perhaps unusually frightening nightmare That is until she gets to school and the teacher introduces a new student who happens to look and sound just like the girl from her dreamTo make matters uncomfortable and strange the new girl Akemi Homura seems to know an awful lot about both the school and Madoka things she shouldn t know yet as a new student to the class and school When Ma. Madoka is horrified to learn the true nature of the witches she and her friends the Magical Girls have been fighting and the terrible fate that awaits any Magical Girl.
