I will go with the amoral Kybei over the evil one. Amoral villains/heroes are always interesting. It makes the show less back and white.


He's definitely working toward his own goal, which makes him that much more endearing ^^

"Hey! This is a great opportunity for you to become a Puella Magi. Pleasepleaseplease make a contract with me, Madoka?"


You cannot really say Kyubei is evil. He is still helping just that his methods are just does not feel right.

Just a guess rather than wishing for something Madoka actually wished to me a puella magica. Thus compounding to her powers. Making her the most powerful.

It's been at the back of my mind for some time now. Kyebei looks a lot like kokomon from digimon. They also have similar alignment(amoral).

Madoka could use her wish to bring Mami back to life.

Kyubey newer said how long the wish could go
From the way the other Mahou Shoujos have made it sound the wish is not all-powerfull. Think about it a little. why wouldn't Mami wish for her family to be brought back to life back at the accident? Plus all the others have kept harping on about how Mahou Shoujo's just die and are forgotten. It would be rather silly if all of a sudden someone went "oh wait, let's just wish for her to come back to life".

This was a really ominous episode, and Kyubey's just getting more and more creepy each passing episode. I honestly don't know what to expect with each coming episode.

Because than her family would be alive while she was dead?
The moment QB appeared, her parents were dead and she was on the verge of dying herself.
She said it herself, she didn't have a choice, so her only option was:
I don't want to die.
In my opinion (and dragging Faust into it) she added: 'alone', because she was saying she'd never been so happy right before she died, i.e her wish came true.
I'm not sure, but I think the anime and the manga are based on the script.
In the manga, her wish is simply: Help.

Holy crap. I thought Sayaka died at first. Thank GOD she didn't >_<
Glad Madoka tried to do something ... except that it didn't work out because, mega revalation ... I never really thought their actual SOULS would be in their Soul gem, but it does make sense - the name, how he like rips it out of their chests ...
Madoka's mom is awesome lol
Woah plot development. I hope that they form a team ... Homura is better now that she went through all that trouble to save Sayaka. Thank you! :3

I feel sorry for anyone taking this shit seriously. Madoka is 2011's Angel Beats, and that is something a show should never strive for.

I profoundly respect personal opinions. Everyone is intitled to their opinion, like it or not.

However, you stepped outside that line and went out and attacked the viewers.
Therefore...

I'm not sure where to start pointing out the flaws in your taste.
I haven't watched Angel Beats, by from it's summary, it has absolutely nothing to do with Madoka.
Plus, both have received widespread praise. I'm not one to trust popular opinion that much, but it's outcome is undeniable in certain occasions. This is one of them.

But perhaps ever worse, is that all of this is nonsense coming from someone who was one of the few who actually enjoyed P&S. Creepy.

Don't go out randomly throwing anime you didn't like into the cosmic bag of Nelo's crappy anime, as if they had anything in common apart from your dislike, and impose that criteria on people.

I shall go no further in my criticism, because this kind of negative discussion does not fit my character. But you certainly know that there are certain, specific people, and sentences declared by them, that make your blood boil for a second. This is one of those cases.

Have a good day.
"Tonight, I sit in the eye of the storm. As fire boils around me, I press forward, winds and lightning lashing my wings. I am no match for what I face. Yet I will not back down, and though fear may place it's stranglehold on my heart, courage will see me through. With tears in my eyes, I hit full throttle. My engines become an inferno, and my weapons light up, awaiting my command.

If I die tonight, I will do so fighting for everything I believe in."

Holy shit, what is with Kyubey wanting Madoka to make a contract with him so badly?

lol, Rocky sticks

I officially hate Madoka so much now...her level of naivety is appalling...Oh god, when she threw away Sayaka's Soul Gem...*facepalm*

So Sayaka woke up without remembering what just happened? Wonder if she'll react the same way Kyoko reacted.

Sakura is such a cold-blooded person. Perhaps that's the thing I like about her.
Deal with Kyubey turns out to be way closer to deal with the Devil himself, instead of white magic. I knew that such a deals must have way greater price, than just making you stronger and need to fight the bad guys =\.

i don't get all the hate for madoka...
you're all so smart with post-thinking

anyway for a moment she was sure sayaka was really dead, so at least you can be happy she got (even for little time) the shock of having killed her friend with her naiveness :/

and if kyubey does its business right the soulgems should not be so fragile to be brocken by a mere truck >.>

Heh... I've seen a lot of people who dislike naiveness. I don't. Naiveness can be a good thing, it can make you act in ways more experienced people wouldn't, fearing for the consequences. It lifts mental barriers. And sometimes, that very naiveness can be the key to victory, against foes which logic, experience and reason would deem as impossible to beat.

I just dislike Madoka's naiveness in the way that it demonstrates itself by her belief that everything will be okay somehow, not by fighting for it in ways that are considered naive.

that is difficult to discriminate, it can be a naive hope, or the resolve to never completely lose to desperation
i like to think it's the second :P

Amazing episode yet again.

Kyuubey, you twisted, manipulative little bastard...though I agree with those that say he's amoral, rather than immoral. In any case though, his complete disregard for everyone's lives and the :3 face makes me wanna strangle him. Not to mention, the part where he devours the Grief Seed with a mouth on his back was a bit disturbing. Perhaps he's gonna be revealed as the final villain?

The last half of the episode had me on the edge of my seat. Madoka really took her mom's advice the wrong way, though I don't really blame her for trying to save Sayaka from a wretched fate. That was a terrible move though, thank god Homura's such a beast.

Other great moments include Madoka's talk with her mom, it had me chuckling at quite a few moments, and I do find her words of wisdom to be quite truthful.

I decided to pick up Madoka again and I just watched episode 6... Just some more melodrama because the characters are one dimensional as fuck.

YOU SHOULD DO SOMETHING WRONG FOR YOUR BEST FRIEND... Wh-what? The reasoning behind it: YOU SHOULD MAKE MISTAKES BEFORE YOU BECOME AN ADULT, but how the fuck can you purposely do a mistake? it wouldn't be mistake then.

DURR HURR, YOU SHOULD BREAK HIS LEGS AND ARMS SO HE'LL BE YOURS FOREVER, SO EDGY. Yeah whatever Kyoko.

And lastly, Kyubei is right on the giant robot shell. It makes sense to fight with a stronger body. So, why are you CRYING AGAIN MADOKA? WHAT'S HORRIBLE? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, STOP FUCKING CRYING. and now suddenly Kyoko is not such a one dimensional bitch anymore and acts surprised at Kyubei's decision. "How terrible, I now have a stronger body".

Oh yeah, when will Madoka become a magical girl yet? I don't know how anyone could stand this anime. It's whining, whining and even more whining.

Just finished six minutes of this episode and I really feel like I want to go into this anime and beat the ^%%& out of that cat >:(
Seriously! he's totally blackmailing them to bacome Magical Girls!

Also, I think he's colllecting those Grief Seeds in order to create the ultimate witch..
I really can't even assume he's on the right side since the second ep

oh..and Homura seems to know a lot.. she jumped right when she noticed that Kanade threw the gem

Seriously, what kind of advice is that?! LMAO xD
They just made her say that so Madoka's gonna be a magical girl, too.. <.< (I do hope she'll not form a contract with Kyuubey and somehow find another way to become a magical girl.. I doubt it though since it seems to be the only way to become one... )
Some things are still predictable imo..
But still, pretty good anime for being a magical girl one! ^^ There should be more shoujo's like this one! ^_^ (more dark-themed..)

Nah, I just watched 6th episode and I still haven't figured out why does everyone have to be so mean to Kyubey. I mean, COME ON! You have problems If you hate this face -> /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

Seriously. It's not like he forces the girls to be a mahou shoujo, being one is their own decision.

Kind of like saying "Stop complaining about gas prices! It's their choice to buy gas!"
But is it really a choice?

Same thing here. It's your choice to be a magical girl. It's just... that you'll have to watch helplessly while the people around you die.

I knew that fucker was off.

So basically you're body gets changed into a vessel to house magic and the "real you" aka soul is in those magic rings/pods?

If that's the case..why did Mami die when her head was eaten? As long as her gem or ring is in tact she should be able to heal. I smell conspiracy

Actually, she's dead for real. If you remember episode 3, Mami's soul gem was part of her hair decor, and we all know how she died...so she's really dead.

Ok...well when Madoka threw away Sayaka's soul gem and she "died", my thoughts were "she's definitively going into a mental breakdown after this..." well in the end she was saved but still it was kinda weird..(Kyubey may be right and its really a logical way to fight, nonetheless inhuman but apparently MSs aint human anymore)

I'm sick of Kyubey trying to find any excuse to make Madoka a MS it's really annoying (that bastard...)

And then finding out all the mahou shoujos are lifeless in their bodies.

I really enjoyed this Ep. I don't like how apathetic Kyuubey is about people dying, but I suppose I could understand why. Since he isn't human his view of human lives could be comparable to the way most of us would feel about dying ants.

Madoka= annoying type character.

It was too perfect a show for me not to expect something wrong, but as always the main character pisses me off (let's be friends, anyone?).

Good episode though, and good show however, Sayaka should pimp slap the shit out of Madoka.

Kyoubey is one creepy animal if you ask me I don't trust him even more now then before as he's pressing Madoka to become a Puella Magi. I wonder what he really is after. So if the Soul Gem is the Puella Magi real form, does that me the witch's egg is the real form too.
