Also... couldn't this mean they just ditched Mami in a witch's world? She could be revived!
Spoiler:
I don't think so, it's highly unlikely that the soul gem didn't get damaged when she got eaten. Then again she could end up possessing a lamp or something!

So, we got a title for an episode that almost sounded like a loop. Almost bad.
That's not actually the title, it's just an instance I noted within the dialogue that summarises p much the entire episode (Also shame on you sir for not getting the reference!)

Aikawa kill the villain until she only had one/two lives left

Spoiler:

at make it gender balanced, it's getting creepy!

Level E 6: Yes, it's a giant NES cartridge.

I'm a little mixed about this series of episodes, it was pretty damn funny, but compared to the first four episodes, this arc is looking a little weak

It all comes together now, doesn't it? With Kyubey's information. The episode also brings up some theories people had.

Actually...
Spoiler:
The only times we have seen a character become naked after transformation was when they have been forcibly stripped of their power... whether by defeat or well... being stripped of their power. This has yet to happen to our male lead.

Spoiler:
wishes go blatantly sour or survived fatal attacks because their souls weren't in their bodies OR told that this was a pretty serious deal
. Kyubey is damn near sympathetic this episode because nobody has any common sense.

Damn nice art direction at the end though.

Dream Eater Merry 7: Way to introduce a cool character and then kill him off in the same episode!
Spoiler:
Yumeji doesn't seem too concerned that he actively encouraged someone to kill like three people. also, I hope there isn't some retarded ass caveat that "absolves" Merry 'cause that would effectively make all this angsting/contemplation moot, not to mention it would be god damn lazy.

I think that episode provided some pretty good characterisation for Kyoko actually.
Spoiler:
That and show how much of a well-balanced individual Mami is compared to these nutters.
Also maybe people are overreacting about Kyubey, 'cause even though he's a smug arsehole he does have a point

Level E 7: The prince is absolutely fabulous in this one, though I'm gonna miss the colour rangers.

Oh man they really perfected the hammy fighting in this one, they even had a guy turn into a dummy a second before he exploded.

Squareface showdown 8: The "Kyuu" really is for cute! How heartwarming!
Spoiler:
Looks like I was wrong and we have gone down the predictable path! good call to those who said Homura was a time traveller (with a batman utility belt shield), and yeah it really looks like Madoka isn't gonna turn magic any time soon. I'll miss the seemingly pragmatic Kyubey, now we know we've got the devious one. Also, the game never ends until the last witch, and by that I mean magical girl, is dead! Hooray!

Welp time to kill a witch!

Calling it now, it ends with them fighting the pregnant witch mother and a seemingly endless stream of toothy electric demon babies, and Homura punching it so hard that it falls into our dimension. She ends up killing it after a short musical number (because her magic doesn't work) and we shoot her down in f-18s
Dream eater 8: SEND IN THE CLOWNS. Yes, that was an episode that also had literally no point! They even put in a DBZ cliffhanger! So many cool and crazy matte paintings gone to waste...

You know, if you analyze this like a book, you see where this is going.
Also, basically looking at the Puella-Magi wiki, you literally see what happens in the next episodes. Kinda because EVERY POSSIBLE SITUATION IS PLAYED OUT.

When the series is over, I should make a chart of how many ways this show could have gone. It'll look like Lost all over again.

Still, pretty a good awkward moment towards the end that made me laugh

Gosick double barrelled extravaganza 7&8: In the middle of watching this but, just found out that Vic is actually around 10-12 years of age. Huh.

Hahaha they put in a japanese festival in an isolated village in europe.

Yup still bad, but somehow this saga more hilarious than the other ones. Especially the part where everyone randomly teleported away so Vic and Kujo could have their moment.

Also, anyone notice the continuity error on the nun suddenly having freckles for one scene?

That music at the end sounded familiar, you know dan na naaa

Yeah, I wondered about Victorique's age too... funny that Kujo didn't pick up on it at all xD

So she's like Shana... physically about 12... mentally about 20.

I'm pretty sure it's been established that Kujo, along with most of the cast lack the faculties to process such information. Also I doubt your claim of Vic's mental age being twenty. Sure she apparently has a high level of knowledge and intelligence (i.e. the ability to pull anything out of her ass and be correct), but painfully lacks the comparative maturity and experience of someone eight or so years her senior.

She might act all tough and mysterious but in reality she's a big baby going through that morbid phase that may grip certain youths during adolescence. I wonder how old Kujo is though since it looks like he might be a bit of a cradle snatcher.

I had a feeling that this won't be good for me because of the discussion over at Bakacast. I knew it would fail, in my honest opinion.

Wandering son 6: Okay this one was pretty good, with some nice character development. Saori is still an ass, but less so, and Chi continues to be strong. Nice work Glasses, nice work.

What was the relevance of that lady walking around in a suit by the way? I know she's TK's friend but I have no idea what her deal is.

Zombie!? 8: I really dislike where the show is heading, rolling my eyes at all but one revelation during this episode. I'm gonna give it one more episode because I actually laughed quite a bit, especially at
Spoiler:
MASK DONALDS, the luchador themed fast food restaurant, and the two old ladies who were deploring the unsavoury behaviour of kids these days.
Also god damn the music is really bad. More stuff from the garage band variety of mystery instrument synth pop and solemn piano.

Madoka Magica 9: I think Kyubey is actually Lelouche. Image
Spoiler:
That amoral son of a gun had this planned from the start with Mami's death, then sayaka and kyoko's! Not buying the entropy thing, but god damn is he devious. But it would be hilarious because of all the people drawing those creepy torture porn pictures involving Kyubey are going to feel foolish! So actually yes I'm buying his explanation. Also I knew Kyoko was gonna die when she started getting desperate to save Sayaka. Welp!
