A little confused. No, really confused.

Maybe there's no other option to Shinbo to finish Madoka

Ending was very different from what I was expecting. I'm still kind of surprised at what Madoka exactly did, but it was interesting to see.

Homura continues to fight, this time with a new set of weapons. A kind of bittersweet ending.

Oh, and there is definitely going to be a ton of Madoka x Akemi fanart popping up soon after the stuff in this episode... :P

Hmm, and there was some sort of interesting scene after the credits. I wonder what those huge wings exactly means?

Alright, just finished the subbed episodes. The ending was way more emotional now that I could understand more than 25% of what was being said. Seriously, I almost teared up at some parts. It was a pretty happy ending, but for some reason I feel depressed.

Going to bump this up to a 9. It's probably one of the best TV series in years if you ask me. Now I wonder if they're going to make that slice of life spinoff or continue with a second season.

I have no idea no idea what just happened. Madoka died, started talking with Sayaka. Then Homura started fighting anti-witches, no one knows who Madoka is. Homu Homu grew a pair of wings... I hope this makes more sense when subs come out.

And why does Homura have a bow now? Is that a +10 conjuration ribbon that Madoka gave her?

Damn, this is the best anime I watched so far.
I love Homura and Madoka's friendship.

The ending was amazing and not troll as I expected, but damn, I want to cry, but I cant... Was so beautiful.

The ending was a little confusing, I don't understand what were that white things.
Ok, now with subs I understood everything. I think that don't need a sequel, but I'm looking forward is Shinbo will 'expand the world of Madoka". I'm waiting for Oriko Magica manga and everything of Madoka's world that he'll give us. :)

GODNESS MADOKA IS SO AWESOME. Homuhomu ♥

Thanks Shaft for the best anime I watched.

Madoka sacrificed herself to save the universe, ironically she played the Jesus card especially that it's Friday in Japan (Good Friday). There is no evidence of a season 2 in this episode. Didn't like the outcome too much and Kyubey is still alive but the nicest touch to the ending is that Homura has Madoka's arrow powers, those wings remind me of Index with Accelerator's wings.

I don't really get it. Madoka destroyed one universe and created another, then she went to 'pick everyone up'? So was she picking these people up to go to Heaven or wherever or to go back to Earth. Also didn't really get the scene with Sayakawitch dying, Homura crying 'Madoka' and Mami and Kyouko saying: Madoka?
First they are Mahou Shoujo's, then they aren't? Whut?
Oh well, I wish for subs, they will probably make me cry even more. @_@

Well... that was disappointing. Really, suddenly I feel stupid for having looked forward to this.
"Herp derp, I'm Madoka, and it took me 12 (or actually 11) episodes to realize that I should become god."
Really, seriously, this was... not a good ending.
First, she becomes god, and then she disappears.

I bet SHAFT planned this out from the beginning. They were planning to delay the end for this day since the very beginning. You're so crafty, Gen.
I really hope they don't plan on "reviving" Madoka on Sunday. Seriously, don't fucking do it.
Oh well, at least the music was top-class, Kyubey was cool, and Homura was... okay, I guess. Kinda cool actually, at the very end.
Oh and the animation was pretty SHAFT'y. Which I kinda like.

But, tl;dr I am disappoint. Very much so.

Edit: Oh shi- I almost forgot;
Everything went better than expected. ‿‿

still have to see the subs to understand what happened :|

but i would have hoped kyubey to get eliminated/defeated with its own rules, and not creating new rules with the god card '_' (and kyubey didn't got removed anyway :|)

but like this it was still an ending i wasn't expecting xD so i've enjoyed it anyway :P

Oh, by the way, Damn Hitomi. D<
The most moving part to me was Madoka's brother remembering her and drawing her in the sand. But.. she was wearing her Mahou Shoujo outfit? I wonder how he knew.. The fact that her mother forgot her and asked if Madoka was an anime character or something, shattered my heart. I think I am depressed now. @_@

Finish watching it.
Madoka's wish was so grand, though. I now understand why this series has the title about the magic of madoka, while everything that happens here is actually homura's adventure.

Cannot say that this is a happy ending. It's kind of sad seeing that Homura is alone fighting new kind of monsters again (though it is claimed that madoka is besides her all the time). anyway, this is a very good ending in many ways.

Here is the quote i got from somewhere (sorry i dont know who said it),

"Remember kids, Jesus Madoka died for our sins.

Our prophet is Homura, she is our leader and our Saviour.

Join the Church of Madoka now."

Maybe Kyouko and Mami do not remember Madoka because they died in the battle, and not turned into a witch. (That explains why Sayaka disappeared as the other Puella Magis with Madoka). Only dead girls, Homura and Madoka's brother remember her.
I think the Puella Magis that were alive (Homura, Mami and Kyouko) stays with their job, but anyone remember Madoka...


Come on, I the only that liked the ending? Could be worse, and wasn't so troll as many people expected.
I don't think I wanna a sequel, but that slice-of-life moe could be good. But I couldn't watch while I remember the original series. lol
And yes, Madoka is the new god

Yeah, but I mean.. Where did that scene suddenly come from? It just jumps from Madoka Universe to Sayaka to the scene I'm talking about, then suddenly back to 'normal life'. I just don't understand when that scene really took place.
..Ugh, I can't even describe it well. I'm too confused. xD

HOLY FUCK.
Madoka becoming a god-like entity was obvious, but everything else was good.
The only thing I didn't like was her and Homura's talk inside of the universe. I kept thinking of NGE and lcl which got me frustrated because I kept expecting something to happen and we'd see everyone clapping.
I watched the raw so I didn't understand a word, but 10/10 for me.
I liked that Homura got the arrow and how her giant wings had roses symbolizing Madoka in them.
I felt sad when her brother kept saying her name though.
