I hope they won't do anything to cheapen the ending of the first season. Then again it's Urobuchi we're talking about, so if he has full control it'll probably be fine.

He's obviously just trying to milk it since it's successful.

I can't say that I blame him for it. I just hope it's not some half baked sequel, I'd much rather see a SoL show that has nothing to do with the plot.
Ok™

Well this should be interesting. Although I don't think a sequel would e very good. But, a spin off or a parallel universe would be good. Even through I'll watch it either way. Hopefully Homura is in it.

Gonna be interesting once we know what he's got in that head of his. The main story is closed and done with, but Shinbou himself already said that he wanted to use the characters more, so it wouldn't surprise me if Urobuchi simply decided to go along with it, though I do wonder if the good man has any idea what he's getting himself into if true.

And apparently, Madoka herself (Yuki Aoi) is hungry for more as well.

There's still the material from Oriko and the side-story Kazumi that they could adapt in some shape or form. I could easily see them make a run-along story which uses the canon material to expand on everything and then tie it together with the finale of Madoka, and finally, do something similar to the Rebuild of Evangelion movies.

Oriko won't happen. Urobuchi is a writer I don't think he is going to re-write something that already exists and was done by someone else than him. Maybe an alternative setting. I refuse to believe he'll do that Slice of Life spin-off.

AceIII said:
Madoka has no real basis for a sequel or prequel but the anime was immensly popular and sold alot so they need to milk this cow for all its worth.

Exactly my thoughts.

ringoo4 said:
Urobuchi cannot possibly make anything that is remotely similar to slice-of-life + pure combination story. It is simply impossible, knowing his philosophy.

Yeah, we just need to look at Madoka/Fate Zero or Saya no uta.

To continue the story in a new season i can't really say if i support that idea but then a spin-off might not the best choice either. To make it into an comedy or slice of life i can't picture it at all.

Never the less i hope they put an equal effort into this so it could try to live up a bit to it's predecessor.

Wouldn't really want a second season, since there is not a lot they can do with it now.A spin off or more of Homura's time lines would be nice. As long as Urobuchi is writing it, it's bound to be good.

They pretty much did that in the sunny day life, so I don't think they would do that again.If they did, Urobuch would not be the one writing it.

totally milking the series
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Sure, because all your favorite series haven't been made for the sake of money?

The world run on money.
If you say that a show will be bad because it's made with the obvious intention of making more money then you should seriously consider the world you are living in.

I see zero problem with milking what make money, in the other end there is only something positive out of it for everyone.

There is shitty show every season, saying you would be ok with a shit show but not with a shitty second season of madoka is just plain delusional. People that usually think like that can not separate a work from a franchise and associate everything related to the franchise as a whole.

A sequel do not destroy a franchise, this sequel could be the worst shit in the existence of anime and it wouldn't change the general opinion that the first season was good. On the other hand it got the advantage of running on it's predecesor's hype which will in return hugely increase the sales whatever the outcome is.

I heard some people saying that it was a cheap trick to make money. It is not cheap but it is indeed a trick to make money and that's not only what the studio want but it is also what we, as anime lover, want.

More profit = more budget for other show = a more satisfying watching experience for us.
People paint anime studio as the big baddies that steal money to people but it is actually the opposite. Most animation studio (including SHAFT) are not in a very good position and if they can use more money to make better show then i'm all for it.

I have to agree with you. I would prefer to watch a sequel from a good show rather than a shitty cliched harem. Even if that sequel turned out to be a shit, it doesn't matter and it won't change my opinion for first season.

Not sure how I feel about this. Madoka was perfect, there's really no need for a continuation or anything. I feel like if they make a second season or something, it would just disappoint.

I'd be more happy if they made a set of movies or something that could switch up a few things, kind of like the Rebuild movies.

I hope not. Precure is good, but too many season will ruin the anime. For Madoka and precure. I hope is only one another season, not too many

Considering how weird the last part of the last episode was with demon fighting Homura out of nowhere, a sequel to figure out what the hell that was all about would be nice.


I enjoyed the first season, I wouldn't mind another one. I'm going to wait until I actually see an episode before I throw it under the bus, or raise it on a pedestal.

Not sure what to think about it. I'd normally assume it's just milking the franchise, but on the other hand it's Urobuchi so...
But honestly i think i would be more happy for new original anime by Gen or something...

I mean I'm not going to deem the sequel a good or bad anime until I actually see it.

Except for the fact that the story is complete. Any continuation would be pointless and stupid. It is highly unlikely that any positive outcome will come from a possible sequel. Of yourse people make money from anime. The issue is whether an author has the pride to leave a successful and FINISHED work intact, or gives in to his greed, produces a sequel that leaves a bitter taste in everyone's mouth.

Tell that to the author of Kannagi. Or just mention School Rumble anywhere.

People that usually think like that can not separate a work from a franchise and associate everything related to the franchise as a whole.

Consider this: you have a tree that only has one branch that grows apples, the other 15 branches have never grown a single fruit at all. You are basically saying that you can't say that the tree is useless, since it has one single branch that has some frutis on it? People usually cut down trees like this and burn them away and plant a new tree instead. You cannot separate the different parts from each other because they make a whole together. But opposed to this a manga spin-off, a drama CD, a spin-off game to an anime series cannot be considered as the same level as an anime sequel.

Not, if the outcome is far worse than the original was. Who wants to see a show and its characters abused.

Tell that the guys at J.C. Staff. They basically spout out random shows(wich are mostly bad adaptations), and if any is successful, they produce sequels that are more shittier than the originals. Quantity =/= Quality. But it's not just J.C. Staff. Take Shaft for example. They had YEARS before the actual production of Madoka. They had a fair amount of profit from Bakemonogatari. They basically had everything to produce a great animation. And what did we get? This:

I'm not saying Madoka was bad at all. But it could have been better considering the amount of time and the amount of money behind it. But a sequel in this case IS a bad idea. And since Gen can't into SoL, the only suitable "continuation" would be a prequel or the animation of the alternate timelines. But they won't be good as the original. Ever.

Interesting. I won't say this is a good or bad thing yet. It's not even a full announcement. It still sounds like a "yeh maybe" to me. Urobuchi's writing has been pretty strong so far so I'll trust him to come up with an idea worth doing. It's gonna have alot of expectation to live up to though.

This is interesting, according to news from reliable source like ANN, Madoka's script was actually done 3 years ago[1] and having Urobochi Gen doing another work for Madoka isn't that surprising at all, especially how the series is generating tons of money.

As far as I know it was never stated to be a direct sequel to the first season.

A story is composed of an introduction, different(s) problem(s), a solution to the(se) problem(s) and a conclusion.
It is not like we saw what happen to Homura for the rest of her life, saying that it is a final conclusion is a bit hard because actually it's quite the opposite: The show gave us a few questions by the end and didn't answer some others. By exploiting these questions it is possible to develop a very good sequel, the rest is up to the author.

That is a bad comparaison in the sense that it isn't really compareable. According to this a guy should leave his woman to find another one if she can't have children? That's a very streched analogy but still.
I'll be more clear on what I meant: If you like a show, you do not have to care about it's whole franchise. By that I mean that even if you think that the rest of the franchise is pure garbage it shouldn't affect your apreciation of the first season and if it does it is because you are doing something wrong.

That's a bit early to say that.

Also taking Jc staff as an exemple is a very very very very bad choice for many reason.
To begin with we are talking about a succesfull serie on a much higher scale than anything JC staff ever produced, comparing this second season to a milked to death SnS or ZnT (which is what I assume you are doing) is pretty much stupid considering that they weren't any good anyway.

Historicaly SHAFT wasn't always a full fledged animation studio or rather it did not produced it's own anime until only a while ago my point being that for something that was so small a few years ago they did pretty well up to now.
The overall animation of Madoka was good and like everything other anime, there'll be scene in which they do not want to put a good deal of the budget into.

I, and many of the people watching Madoka I know of, never noticed this distorted face for the reason that it was most probably in a scene where Madoka wasn't the focus and in which she was near the background. Still it's normal that some watcher did notice it and posted about it but every show got some of those distorted face scene. It's just that there was a very big hatewagon when Madoka came out so they got enphasied as argument against the anime whereas other show's distortion get ignored by most people.
