“Will this really be the end?”
Sometimes, I ponder whether Shaft and Aniplex actually has any plans to end the Madoka series. Could it be that both companies are busy with other projects in which they shelved Madoka for the time being? Could this be part of their master plan to build more hype and excite the fans in order for them to beg for more Madoka in order to make a profit? Or perhaps both companies are just getting tired of completing the series in which they lost interest and zeal on the franchise ever since the end of the 1st anime?
We may never know the reason why this series has yet to have a conclusion although it is surprising to know that there are plenty of spin-off mangas that have been made in which the company has invested a lot of time and money on it. It has been 2 years now since I last saw the Rebellion movie and it made me feel very empty after watching it because the fate of our protagonists are still hanging in the balance due to the uncertainty of their futures.
However, not all hope is lost since a new movie is currently being made by Shaft and Aniplex, and I just hope this will be the ending we are wishing to materialize. Although I have yet to see official trailers being uploaded in the internet, the only thing we can do is wait for the official announcement on when this new movie will be aired on theaters. For the meantime, let this poster from Newtype be sufficient to let you know our magical girls haven’t been abandoned altogether.
