Almost blew my coffee right onscreen when I checked the third pic... :rofl:

Tokyoites gonna be treated to one helluva cavalcade of shows, so looks like everyone's gonna have to stock up a lot of coffee, beer, soda, Jolt, junk food, melopan, and of course... Morning Rescue.

As for this axeman... He'd like to end his Madoka watching with a stick of Seven Stars and a glass of absinthe in the dim light. :)

Ideally, I'll celebrate the ending with a glass of champagne, and make a reminder to send roses to the voice actresses.

Man it's been a while since I was so looking forward to the last ep of a show

Lately it's been more of the "finally it's over" variety :lol:

Oddly enough I think the last time was with forever to be underrated anime B gata H kei, anime these days just aren't suspenseful enough!

Wow, re-broadcasting episode 10? That says quite a lot about how popular the series is I guess. Although it really is getting aired late..

There must be some site with a count down till ep 11 gets aired, so I demand a link, NOW

I just checked my viewing note and found that I watched (or recorded) Ika Musume at 2am Tuesday every week. So here you go.... Ika-Musume is serialized in Shounen Champion but as I said if it is not hugely popular manga like One Piece or Gintama, even shounen anime would have to go to midnight time slot.... Sad, but true...

By the way, just to let you know the manga of B gata H kei finally ended and the last tankoubon came out 2 weeks ago. Very nice wrap-up of the characters and particularly the relationship of Yamada and Kosuda!



More amazing craftsmanship shown by PMMM fans. This is the first time I've ever seen so items of such diversity (not just doujin manga or illustrations or ita-car or iphone case) made for one anime....

Also, according to twitter from Shaft staff, the work for the final tweaks on the anime did not finish until last weekend...

God, that was quite a daring move. :D

Yep, Yomiuri sells them for 50 mil.

The last time an anime studio did just that BIG, it was back in December 10, 2002 when Gainax posted a full-page teaser ad for Eva: Renewal on Asahi Shinbun (according to Newtype USA January 2004).

PMMM ending speculations

Postby symbv » Wed Apr 20, 2011 11:53 pm

Here are the summary of 2chan's speculation of what Butch Gen ending means in PMMM. Not too imaginative but not crazy oddball guess either. Read it when you have time.

SPOILER: Show

Image

A ENDING
=========
As the Walpurgis Night approached, the city started to collapse.
Homura, only standing by herself, tried to keep her promise made in the past and to save the world, fought WN.
With a hopeless difference of power and strength, everything seemed to be lost, and at that moment, thinking of
the thoughts Homura had kept with her over so many loops of time, Madoka decided to make contract with QB.
--- Simply, purely, want to save, Homura, and the world.
Madoka displayed absolutely great power, fought and beat Walpurgis NIght, and then breathed her last breath.
Again Homura faced the trip back to the past to keep her promise.

B ENDING
=========
Madoka wished for the resurrection of Sayaka and others and made contract with QB.
However, the price to get such power was too great.
Even though she managed to destroy Walpurgis Night, her Soul Gem power was used up and turned black.
The innocent girl now went berserk and changed into something monstrous.
Reflected on the eys of Homura, who kept fighting only to wish for saving Madoka, was now the mutated Madoka
which was taking all the lives on this planet.

C ENDING
=========
Madoka, having known everything, made a decision just before Walpurgis Night, and made contract with QB.
However, this caused damage to Homura's mind which was irreparable and caused her to reach her limit.
A new Grief Seed was born, and Homura turned into a witch.
Homura, previously a person who only worked to protect Madoka herself, was now the worst being who attacked Madoka
and tried to take her life. The rought and sad battle between these two people, who fought together and had a promise that
transcended many time loops, ended in Madoka's victory. After seeing off and saying goodbye to Homura, Madoka faced WN by herself and
beat WN.
She then left the city, now in ruin, and promised herself to keep fighting till the end.

D ENDING
=========
With a wish made by Madoka with QB, Walpurgis Night was beaten. However, this also became a trigger for Madoka to change into a witch.
This cursing power to twist and distort the universe covered the world with hopelessness and caused it to slowly collapse.
Only the magic that bypassed time could block this distortion of space.
With all the hopes put into this speculation, Homura approached the salvation witch and gradually held up her hand.
As Homura's hand was about to touch her, Homura's mind had only the faces of Madoka whom she could not save at the end.
With time and space being mixed together, the world now started with a new history...with the price of the sacrifice of so many young girls...

E ENDING
==========
Homura and Madoka fought many QB's which were covering the whole sky. Wrapped in light they passed into another dimension.
What appeared before their eyes was a peaceful town with no dreaded witch nor contract about mahou shoujo.
This world and this city, which almost could be called a "paradise", really existed and was not any magic barrier or illusion.
At this place, the ominous voices of QB were banished. As they came to believe everything ended, Homura and Madoka
were hit by the missles from the fast approaching iron birds. It was a white shadow with red eyes which watched the two girls falling off the sky.
"Really really thank you very much"

F ENDING
=========
"Are we good? Homura-chan."
"Yeah, let's go. Together..."


Currently the most popular speculation in 2chan about the ending is
SPOILER: Show
Madoka will contract with QB at the end of Ep.11 or start of Ep.12 and she would sacrifice herself to bring back a world where everyone lived on (including those who had died) but nobody remembered Madoka except for Homura, who kept believing one day she would see Madoka again.

Someone even produced a alleged "leak document" of screenplay draft to support such view. May give more details when I had time to translate more...
I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

I just finished rewatching Episodes 1-10, I read the 2 volumes of the manga, and even the three chapters released for the Kazumi spin-off.

My body is ready.

Honestly, I think it would be hilariously awesome if they gave us a EoTV-esque ending...

This is the kouhai (junior colleague) of Kyuubei (could be written as 9B as 9 in Japanese is Kyuu). The name is Jyuubei (could be written as 10B as 10 in Japanese is Jyuu).

Freitag, 22. April 2011, 00:44:47 JST:
I´m currently watching some kind of Television show on MBS where a girl who cosplays as Asuka does stuff with the Eva soundtrack in the background and eva-ish white on black title-cards.
Wtf?

http://www.mbs.jp/888/blogtabi/

Found.
Someone care to explain?
She´s rolling dice or something and getting money from some faceless guy.


Edit:
I think I get it now, she´s travelling to the north of Japan on a fixed budget or something.
Cosplaying as Asuka for some reason.

Money pleases Asuka.

Edit2:
Still watching the MBS livestream out of boredom.

YES
Gonna take a shower now, then watch Ano Hana on Fuji through KeyHoleTV
