Synopsis

Were all the magical girls truly saved from despair? Now, the great "Law of Cycles" leads the magical girls to their new fate. Madoka Kaname, a girl who once led an ordinary life, sacrificed her very existence to set every magical girl free from their cruel destiny. Homura Akemi, another magical girl who was unable to keep her promise with Madoka, continues to fight in the world in which Madoka left her behind.

"I dream of the day when I can finally see your dear smile again."

Madoka Kaname has changed the world. In this new world, is what the magical girls see a world of hope... or despair?

This third film once again brings together the members of the Madoka creative staff. Led by chief director Akiyuki Shimbou, the script is written by Gen Urobuchi from Nitroplus and the original character concept designs are by aokiume. SHAFT is once again the studio bringing their work to life. With a completely new screenplay and animation, "Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie -Rebellion-" is a brand new tale of magical girls!

There're anime where the ending will leave you satisfied.
There're cliffhanger anime for people to die for a sequel.
There're even anime that just leaves cliffhangers and never come back.
There're those garbage anime that you just don't feel anything at all.

And there's Madoka, an anime with an amazing story, art, sound, character, but a soulless and downright devilish ending.

There will be absolutely no plot at all, because I want people to understand and be ready for anything.

And, I tell you, you'll need to be.

[P.S. There are absolutely no plot summaries in here, but the vocabularies and terms I use may indirectly suggest a minor point of the read more

There's no escaping the fact that the Madoka Magica franchise is currently explosive. And with it comes the pressure on the creators to push out more content for the fans. After two films that covered the original series with many improvements and new footage, the first truly new piece of Madoka Magica canon has arrived in the 3rd film, titled "Rebellion".

Before I review the film, I will mention that Rebellion is not intended to be viewed without prior knowledge of the original series - it is required viewing to understand the plot of Rebellion, as nearly the entire story and its characters are reflections and read more

Recommendations

Both films share enough in common. Both are deeply complex and have confusing plot lines that converge to a major climax to twist everything previously established by its predecessor, combined with dazzling visuals in an apocalyptic thriller.
The same wtf feeling, lots of plot twists, dream-like animation. Both are movies.
