Ditto. By the time they decide to air the movie in Canada the blu-ray release would probably be out already...

Not trying to be hateful but I've been wondering, why are they showing this movie in in a micro-nation like San Marino of all countries when most people (probably about 95%?) in the world hasn't even heard of that country. There are only like 32,000 people living there.

While PMMM isn't among my top three, it's still one of my classics, and i happen to live in the U.S.A ~

Lucky . . .:3
Cant wait to see all the PMMM cosplays at the theatres like when there was a Naruto movie out.

I hope this gets shown in Australia some time. From what I've heard, it's pretty damn good. As long as it makes sense by itself, I'll probably love it. The Death Note recaps were awful because they cut out major plot points which created a lot of holes in the story. You could argue that they were trimming the fat (Of which there was a lot of in Death Note) but they left in most of the fat. Most of the trimmed scenes were from good parts of the show.

I want it to be more like Eva 1.0. Subtle differences and better animation that can also serve as a replacement to the series. I would like to own these because I love Madoka but the deliberate slow pace in some parts makes it a bit hard to marathon. It worked well if you only watched a few episodes at a time or your watching the series for the first time but this might work as a suitable replacement for the show. As long as it makes sense as a standalone movie, I'll probably enjoy it.

As usual no chance of it being shown in Austria and even the Uk gets left out.

Madoka is doing really well.
Such a shame it plays only on 43 screens. I hope there will be more for 3rd movie.
I'm so jealous of you people who can watch it in your country...

Oh man, of course it isn't showing in the Netherlands orz It never is. Nearest would probably be France.
Quite a shame, but I can live without uwu;

If anyone wants a free ticket to the LA showings on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday in exchange for sending me the signboard and poster that comes with the ticket, please message me to discuss details. I will cover the costs of postage. I was originally going to go on Monday but can't make it anymore I really want the signboard or poster though even though I won't be able to watch the film.
