Best Puella Magi Madoka Magica Episodes
Legitimately my favourite episode of anything ever. The biggest and best plot twist in a show full of plot twists. Homura's story is so saddening, I really feel for what she's going through, and finally seeing her motives for her actions and an explanation of her character, it's heartbreaking really, but this show handles it so beautifully. Plus the way it plays the intro in place of the credits; the lyrics all suddenly make sense now, its use in this episode is so genius, I can't believe how well thought-out this entire show was, that was genius. I hold this episode close to me, it's incredible that this show was written in one draft, because this episode feels legitimately perfect.
At first I had no clue what was going on. Then it all made sense and it explained Homura's relationship with Madoka. It was a sad, but excellent episode.
This is the episode that has made Homura such a brilliant character. Her character development is awesome.
It explains everything! And it does it so well!
I was so sad that Madoka became a concept after being granted her wish, but she knew it was for the better of the universe
This made me cry.
So sad but epic..
The ending of this episode is genuinely my favourite scene in anime, full stop. The music is just so perfect
I love this episode because it's just super sad.
Kyoko died in this one, and I feel bad!
A very, VERY close second favourite episode to me behind Episode 10. Each and every scene I remember so well, Sayaka's fight with Madoka, Sayaka on the train, Madoka being so close to making a contract, and the ending scene. Holy crap that last scene is probably my favourite scene of all of Madoka, it's incredibly heartbreaking seeing what Sayaka's become, and her transformation into a witch left me in shock, like, did that really happen!? Not only that, but it was amazing seeing our first instance of Homura showing her true feelings, we knew next to nothing about her up to this point, this was our first real glimpse into Homura's true personality, it was astounding. Absolutely incredible episode.
I don't.. Know just like this one it sad
The episode that sets the tone for the rest of the anime. Definitely the episode that got me and 90% of the viewers hooked
It has such a perfect twist that affects the characters the rest of the series.
Even that most people probably didn't liked episode 1 due to the "troll the audience" thing, It's quiet nice
