The beginning of the episode really had me confused. I had to look at the last episode to check I hadn't accidentally skipped a week somehow. It also had me confused because Madoka and Lan were confessing their love to one another, and whilst I was thinking "Yay for Yuri!", I had no idea to how such a relationship could come about suddenly. Oh well.
I didn't understand what the hell was going on with Midori and the other two mecha doing a link that caused flowers to fall like rain again, but then Madoka made an even bigger flower, and this made everything alright. No clue. Oh, and that blond girl being a witch that looped time or something, don't really know what's her deal either, apart from she apparently has to die. I agree with this, I think she should.
Ah yes, she thought her sister was dead, but got over it pretty quickly didn't she, just needed the words of a
close friend peer family member friend acquaintance
random person to make her feel better. I'd expect her to be more relieved to see her sister not be dead, but I guess since she already got over her death it makes sense.The Series
I've known since very early on in this series how I was going to rate this, so I won't beat about the bush, it's a 5
. I have to agree with what AC said, I'll remember this show for the random hijinks and the slice of life elements rather than the mecha drama, because it was done much better, was more enjoyable, and it made up a larger part of the series. Madoka was really annoying at first, but about three fifths of the way through she stopped being too annoying to watch, though that "Maru~" shit still pissed me off slightly. I smiled when she started crying before she could complete it after Lan left, which sums up how I felt about it. My favourite character, as you all know by now is Lan, was fairly likable in my eyes, though she wasn't the strongest of characters, and I found her fairly cute, and I could empathize with her, strangely.
Anyway, I think there's a second season in the works, according to MAL
it will start in July. I'll be watching, I don't know what to expect from it either, plot wise.
Average for the season so far: 4.5
