Madoka struggles with a way to stop Sayaka from being killed by Kyoko.
Wow, this series just keeps dropping one thing after another on us, Iâ€™m truly amazed. On the small hand first we learn there is some big event that both Homura and Kyoko have existing knowledge of which seems to be pretty hard, but of course the big one is the nature of a Puellaâ€™s soul. While on one hand it makes sense and is a good thing for the body to be just a shell, it still shocking. I do see Kyubeyâ€™s point about it, but still donâ€™t like him. He seemed extremely insensitive about the issue not caring at all that people had a problem with it. Still though, he has a point in that for fighting purposes it makes sense that itâ€™s a good thing the boy can be destroyed and you can still â€œsurviveâ€
Despite those good points though Iâ€™m still shocked about it. It seems so big, the fact that your soul is no longer inside your body, but inside of some gem. I like that they showed Kyoko shocked and appalled at this too. Sheâ€™s not uncaring, she didnâ€™t know about this and was pretty pissed off, as would I be if I wasnâ€™t told that that would happen. Although it may make you a better fight, itâ€™s still something that would change my opinion on wanting to become a Puella. If the whole â€œliving your life for othersâ€ thing wasnâ€™t enough, you may not be considered human? Thatâ€™s pretty damn big.
Iâ€™m also kind of surprised and a bit frustrated about how slow things are moving. Thatâ€™s not to say the previous episodes werenâ€™t great, they were as they had a lot of information and knowledge in them to set up this world and the lore, however despite that not a lot happens in them. I mean taking a step back and looking at this episode all that happened was Sayaka and Kyoko face off to fight, but get interrupted. Sure the should gem thing happens but its returned right away, so that just served to give us a reason for the knowledge of how the soul works. Overall, weâ€™re still in the same place here.
Again, this isnâ€™t bad. As I said this episode gave us a lot of information like some big event coming up, how souls work and the nature of a Puellaâ€™s body but still I just keep wanting more!
On a different note, Homura keeps getting more interesting. I feel like she knew the truth behind the soul because when Madoka threw the egg away she went after it right away rather than waiting before Kyubey really said anything. Plus Kyoko seemed surprised at the knowledge she had, like it wasnâ€™t normal to have plus Kyubey said the telltale line about how she couldnâ€™t beâ€¦.. And stopping there which means he knows something about her which surprises even him. One theory out there that makes some sense is sheâ€™s time traveled, which is why she is trying to prevent Madoka from being a Puella, perhaps she knows what happens to her or to something if she becomes one and wants to stop it. Either way, I want to know more about her as well.
