According to Chunichi Newspaper, the first movie of Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica will be premiered in autumn. In the article, director Shinbo Akiyuki said he was worried that anime has been out of mainstream entertainment and hoped Madoka will attract the attention of the general public.

Sounds good to me. The sooner the first movie is out, the shorter the wait for the other two movies. Especially the third one with supposedly new material.

I believe the first 2 movies are recap movies. I'm sure they will go the route of TTGL and add new scenes though.

Wasn't the whole reason Madoka was so cool was that it was out of the mainstream?


Is it really not making enough money with the passionate audience it has now?

I wouldn't worry too hard, Mr. Shinbou. @_@

Seriously someone needs to start making an abundance of threads on a place where Japanese normalfags hang out on the internet. Can't do it myself because I don't speak Japanese.

I don't think the anime attracted anyone new to anime mostly those who watch anime anyway so of course he should be concerned if the general public go see the film.

Shinbo's a good director and this should be a great watch per usual.

He never said he was going to change the anime so it's for the general public; he just said he hopes they notice the anime. You guys should really decrease the amount of things you inject into your bodies. It's unhealthy.

I know they're recaps, they could simply have Kyouko's scenes in the second recap film.

Sorry Evangelion, but I want Madoka much more than you right now. Especially since you've been in the works forever.

one word: Precure
they not only make money in cinema (like 10 million dolars from Pretty Cure All Stars DX3)
but also gives loads of cash from toys and whatnot (here we have nice sum of 160 milion dolars)
so yeah it may work

problem is that it's easy to use child as an excuse to go for Precure movie... but doing it the same with Madoka, it may be a bit difficult plus attracting some non-interested people to go for it (K-On! didn't seem to have such problems)

You do realize it's the second best selling anime after Bakemonogatari, right?


You do realize that profit does not change the genre of a anime right?

I just hope it's not a recap, but instead a "remake" similar to that "rebuild of Evangelion" movies.

Exciting. Too bad about the wait, though.

It will be interesting to see how the Madoka movie does against the Evangelion one. I wonder which'll get more people...but I'm betting on Eva. ^^

Good, at least we've got a date now. I just hope it'll do justice to the series and is not just a bunch of anime scenes put together. Re-animating and even adding new scenes would be awesome, though.
