|No Mahou Shoujo Characters cried this much in the FOURTH episode|
So, this episode starts with Sayaka and Madoka in depression. Madoka was trying all the time during the first half, which was surprisingly relevant knowing how Mami had that terrifying death.
|Simply Terrifying Storyboard of Urobuchi and Shaft directions.|
Dark and creepy atmosphere overwhelmed that of previous episode. Shaft direction during reflections on Mami was very well-done in darkest mood possible. Unlike the first two episode, Urobuchi's script and Shinbo direction is now making perfect synch. Aoki's design was for the alienation from the start, so even though synchro towards the story is about 0%, it's only contributing to create even more terrifying mood overall, such as that zombie working scene.
|Homura doing Shenjougahara pose. ALL HAIL TORE-SAMA!.|
Next key point was Homura's reaction to this, and there is something various suspicious about entire thing she says. She was jealous of Madoka's her determination of 'remembering Mami's death', but Homura was almost sarcastic about this whole thing that Madoka said. We can carefully predict that Homura definitely knows Madoka either from the past or future, and Madoka memory might have been 'distorted' in an one way or another.
|That laugh won't last long under Urobuchi's stomach.|
|Extremely suspicious direction. Foreshadowing of Super-ultra Emo Kamijou and Sayaka's fall?|
|Girl who represents the reality, major enemy of Sayaka. (not Cond**-chan)|
|This biiitch is a real biiitch.|
This guy is the bad guy. The end.
PS. I've never hated GG fansub this much. Seriously. Enough trolling with childish advertisement. Going with Nutbladder and Yesy now-on.
