Magical GirlsMusic for the First Half of the Article
The Magical Girls are adolescent girl gifted with powers granted by making a contract with Kyubey. The terms of the contract are that Kyubey will grant the girl one wish, and in exchange, she will use magic to fight against witches. The powers she receives are often related to her wish. For example, a wish to cure someone will grant enhanced regenerative abilities. Magical Girls carry soul gems A Soul Gem is an egg-shaped gem that holds a magical girl's power. It is created when a contract is made with an Incubator. Its size and brightness are relative to the amount of magical power residing in the girl. The gem is essential for hunting and fighting witches: it glows whenever a witch or one of its familiars is nearby, and it is also used to transform for battle. When not in gem form, it exists as a ring on the owner's finger. A Soul Gem is so named because it serves as a container for the soul, so that the body will be able to survive otherwise fatal wounds. Accordingly, if the Soul Gem is destroyed, the owner will die. If the body is moved too far away from the gem, it will lose its pulse and become lifeless. Whenever a magical girl uses her powers, her gem becomes darker, up to the point where her powers are exhausted. Before this happens, the gem must be purified by transferring the darkness into Grief Seeds. Offensive powers typically involve making copies of a personal weapon, such as arrows, muskets or bazookas. Anyone with a soul is capable of making a contract (This includes Alien Lifeforms or Machines).
They're Cutting Edge
• Madoka Kaname
Madoka Kaname, the protagonist and title character, is a gentle and friendly 14 year old girl. Living an ordinary life, Madoka has a loving family and is surrounded by good friends. One day she had a dream of a mysterious girl who was fighting an ominous creature. The next day, Akemi Homura, the girl from her dream, came to her class as a transfer student.
Madoka first appears to a naive, gentle girl from a kind family. Though sometimes shy, she makes friends without much difficulty and treats others gently and with respect.
She has low self-confidence, and she believes she does not have much to offer the world unless she is helping people, which makes becoming a magical girl appealing to her. She has been known to become flustered easily, and in certain circumstances, she can be easily manipulated by others playing on her insecurity and desire to help. As a magical girl, she is more obviously confident in herself than before her wish.
After Mami's death, Madoka changed her mind about becoming a magical girl.
Her wish to Kyubey is to Release Magical Girls in to the past and future from their cursed fate of becoming witches in the penultimate timeline before the New World.
She Ascends and becomes the deity of the New World after that event.
• Sayaka Miki
Madoka's best friend. She has an unwavering sense of justice. She forms a contract with Kyubey to heal the wrist of her childhood friend Kyosuke, allowing him to play the violin again. As a side effect of her wish, she is afforded prodigious healing abilities and a musical motif. She wields cutlasses, of which she can conjure infinite amounts. Her affections for Kyosuke go unacknowledged and she falls into despair, becoming the witch Oktavia von Seckendorff. She is later killed by Kyoko.
• Mami Tomoe
A nurturing upperclassman at Madoka's school and a veteran magical girl. She wields an infinite number of magical flintlock rifles along with various ribbon-based binding spells. Her parents died in a car accident, and she lives alone. She Acts as Madoka and Sayaka's surrogate older sibling or mother.
She is eaten by the witch Charlotte in Episode 3, making her the first casualty of the penultimate timeline.
What a sad way to go.
• Kyoko Sakura
A type 5 Anti Hero. A veteran and morally ambiguous magical girl. Her view of a magical girl's duties are ruthlessly utilitarian; for example, on her first encounter with Sayaka, she suggests allowing a familiar to feed on humans and mature into a witch so as to ultimately gain a Grief Seed from slaying it. She wields a halberd whose shaft can split into chained-together segments, giving her weapon dangerous flexibility and reach. Her wish was to make people listen to her father's unorthodox preaching. This arguably mind-controlling wish afforded her illusory powers, but she lost them due to the trauma of her father loosing his mind and her family deaths.
Despite her initial antagonistic behavior toward Sayaka, Kyoko sees a bit of herself in her and begins to warm up and reach out to her, but not in time to save her from becoming a witch. Kyoko eventually takes out Sayaka in a kamikaze attack.
• Charlotte the Witch aka Nagisa Momoe
The dessert witch, with a tenacious nature. She desires everything. She will never give up. Though she is capable of creating infinite amounts of any dessert she desires, she is unable to make the cheese that she loves most. One could easily catch her off-guard with a piece of cheese.
She is actually Nagisa Momoe and fights along side the other magical girls
In my opinion I think Charlotte is awesome, I personally wouldn't mind having her as my chef at a house party because she can use magic to make the food, plus because she can't make cheese nobody has to worry about being lactose intolerant The Main VillainsMusic for the Second Half of the Article
Kyubey aka the Incubator
The Apparent Main Villain of the Story and a Complete Monster. He/She/It is a small, cute creature that communicates through telepathy. His duty is to form contracts with girls where they will become magical girls and fight witches in exchange for any one wish. He is intent on contracting Madoka due to her immense potential.
He is an "Incubator" and a member of an alien race that seeks to use the thermodynamics-violating energy produced by the magical girl/witch cycle to counteract entropy and stave off the heat death of the universe. The greater the wish and the more important the contractee, the better the payoff, and several powerful historical women were, in reality, magical girls. He is also a Hive Mind of sorts and can easily regenerate upon death.
He is memorable enough to earn himself an emoticon /人◕‿‿◕人\
In case you want to know how bad Kyubey is well he manipulates Sayaka's soul gem so that she feels excruciating physical pain, just to drive home the truth about how becoming a magical girl basically turns you into a walking corpse by default. he only has pure emotionless sadism that he seems to represent. Feeding on the pain and angst of teenage girls as and using the excuse 'it fights entropy' doesn't get him a lot of favor points in my book. The cuteness is just a mask to show how ugly he is on the inside.
He Will Say things like, "Want to become a magical girl and have your own miracle? Great! Make a contract with me. Oh, and, uh, it'll only cost you your soul and end with you becoming the very thing you fight through sheer, eventual despair. Toodles!"
Kyubey uses the emotion and desperation of little girls in order to scam them into a Faustian bargain and force them in a dangerous job as enslaved Magical Girls. Plus, being Invisible to Adults means that those who talk about him to anyone won't believe them.
His entire goal is to have the girls fall into despair so they can become witches. He decided way of reinforcing leading Sayaka to thinking "I done screwed up!" and witchifying her.
we see him slowly morph from helpful (if you are lucky enough to get your questions right) Mascot to uncaring Manipulative Villain. Worse, he stays polite and helpful (again, if you are lucky enough to get your questions right) the entire time.
To accomplish this, he cleverly schemes and plans to ensure that as many Magical Girls as possible die in Mitakihara Town, so that when Walpurgis Night arrived, the girl would be forced to either contract with him or allow her city to get completely destroyed.
This little thing is Manipulative he's very good at asking the girls to make a contract with him at the exact moment when they'd have the most difficulty refusing. And he will abusively call you, even if you do refuse his offer.
Not to mention that the whole concept of Kyubey the stuff nightmares are made of. It appears in a form that is psychologically appealing to young girls for the 'cutesy' element and playing on the natural inferiority the girls possess into manipulating them into making a contract that ultimately results in their death to further his plans. There's a particular reason he doesn't seem to chose current world victims that are old enough to understand the concept of trust... *shudder*
He is destroyed Homura AkemiMusic for the Third Half of the Article
• Homura Akemi
A new transfer student in Madoka's class and a highly stoic magical girl with unknown motives. All in all she starts out as a Anti Hero Type 3 because for whatever reason, she will go to any length to prevent Madoka from striking a contract with Kyubey. She wields conventional weaponry such as firearms and explosives and carries a buckler. Her powers allow her to move so fast she appears to be teleporting to the naked eye. She is, in reality, a time traveler; the terms of her contract give her the power to turn back time so she can attempt to save Madoka from becoming a magical girl herself, and eventually, a witch. Using her buckler, she can also briefly pause time, allowing her to effectively teleport and set up powerful combination attacks. Her other weapons are completely unrelated to her wish: they are stolen and completely non-magical.
In Madoka's new, witch-free world, she works with Kyubey to fight the new manifestations of despair and wields a black bow similar to Madoka's.
She is the True Main Villain of the Movie because She overturns Kyubey's system and destroys him, becoming an Evil God in the process. Before the events of the film she sealed away Madoka's powers, restored the Witch System which will turn all magic girls into WITCHES that will fatally harm other Magical Girls, and taken control of the universe and turned it into a place solely dedicated to imprisoning Madoka. In the span of a few minutes, everything changed: her determination regarding Madoka's safety has gone from heartwarming to downright frightening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXXJwpPvFcM
(We see The Magical Girls, Homura, and the 3 Eds watching Kyubey disintegrate)
Kyubey: I would have gotten away with it too if It weren't you meddling kids and fat guy with only one eyebrow!
(Kyubey Completely disintegrates)
Madoka: What should we do now?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2KHXyw0hc4
Eddy: I Got an Idea for a new film
(Eddy takes out a poster it looks like this)
Double D: Let me get this straight, you plan to make a baseball movie with everyone in it?
Double D: OK then.....................but why does all the names not match ours?
Eddy: I can't spell some names.
Double D: But you can write?
Double D: So let me get this straight you have legible hand writing and yet you spelled you're name "Quentin Tarantino" and Ed and I name as "Urobuchi Gen and Lumpy Space Daddy".
Eddy: Yes, everything you just said pretty much explains everything.
Ed: IT'S PARTY TIME!!!
