Probably just a series of promotional items, you know, so they can cash in just little more while building hype for the third movie

Cool down guys

Did madoka surpass bake in sales yet?

No. Neither title ranks anymore so they stopped at 78,671 for Bakemonogatari and 71,057 for Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica in the last known numbers.
Were those the anime sales?
BD plus DVD sales.

I hate to break it to you, but it already has.

This anime was sooooooooooooooo good but only a masterpiece for a short while like a year. I don't think it was meant to last this long. (THE MOVIES THOUGH) A magazine seems too much. I'm betting it won't last for more than half a year.

Just another day in both Japan and the world of business. Nothing too special to see here.

Yes, don't be bitter on PMMM's popularity. I firmly believe that the series is getting the popularity, sales and adaptation that it deserve that most anime fail to reach.

Move on with life, buy that MADOKAMI figure today LMAO

They should really stop with all the Madoka crap, they already have three movies, a video game, tons of merchandise, and now a magazine.


They are in the business of making money and fans are buying the merchandise, so both sides are getting what they want. Why are you guys so bitter over this? I love the show but the only thing I'd remotely get is the series/movies on BD. If people want more and they are delivering I see no harm.
