Okay, this is a super-important scene because there’s obviously a lot of symbolism going on here. I haven’t really seen anybody talking about this, so I want to dig a little deeper than the surface at which Homura is saying that “this ridiculous farce is just wasting the sacrifice that Madoka made for us.” I don’t think Homura really believes that, and I’ll tell you why.
Right here, we’re looking at a sculpture of Ultimate Madoka, pictured as a radiant goddess with arms outstretched to take on the burdens of despairing magical girls everywhere—the very image of salvation. Remember that Homura is the only one who is supposed to remember Madoka in this new universe. That tells us that this part of the scene takes place entirely within Homura’s mind.
Okay, so that’s all well and good. After all, Kyubey did describe Madoka’s ascension as “trying to become a god,” so it only makes sense that she’s portrayed as such, right?
Okay, so Rebellion Story. Finally.
There are two topics I have seen discussed on the site. The first is, frankly, more of a complaint. It goes something like “I was disappointed because the story was unresolved/open ended”, or something like that. Note, this isn’t something I have seen in bulk, but there are a lot of folks who just can take open endings and that applies to so many different shows and movies. The second is probably the most widely asked question about Rebellion Story: “Do you agree with what Homura did?”
Before I even throw down the read break, let me tell you that I am probably going to look at this from a different angle that what most people do. For me, Madoka Magica (and Rebellion Story by association) is not about the characters. You will see what I mean here in a few.
Additionally, it is only a fair warning that this is a lengthy read.
homura akemi is 14 years old socially awkward nerd loser and no one will convince me otherwise ever
From the BD booklet or whatever. Important insight if you think the ending is just black and white.
Be careful what you do to Substitute dolls!
That Banette is hunting you down for revenge. I hope you enjoy this little comic. I’ve been dying to draw it out and I like the idea of a Banette just coming out of a substitute doll.
