But from a practical perspective, since humans are essentially a renewable resource, there's no shortage of souls to tap into. Wouldn't keeping humanity alive indefinitely and making more normal magical girls net you more energy than harvesting just Madoka and letting her kill the entire human race?
As you can see, no.
You are dumb as hell OP.
Someone start a waifu war to keep this thread alive.
The qubeys dont give a fuck about the human race anyway, so it doesnt matter
Not if they got more energy from Madoka than they expected to get from all other magical girls in the remaining lifetime of humanity on the planet.
It's about probability.
Humanity is a fragile race that can destroy itself at any moment. You could potentially get more energy over time, but they could lose it all at any moment. Why risk that when you could get Madoka power now. It's also immediate.
Now that that's settled
Who Homo Here?
Wait from what is this?
I've seen all episodes and movies and I can't remember that
There's a timestamp in OP's filename.
It's clearly from episode 10. I think the subbers translated the runes.
I think I made a Freudian slip

You are asking why an apathetic employee with a quota to meet, would decide he is better off getting his job done father in the short term, over the long term health of his organisation?
QB doesn't care about saving the universe, his is just an energy harvester. His job is getting the energy, and he isn't getting paid to do it sustainably.
We can't really tell for sure.
What would happen if Madoka didn't form a contract, thus never becoming a magical girl and hence never becoming a witch? Night of Walpurgis would probably rampage around and wreck the entire city until a bunch of other magical girls come along to take it down, and Madoka would likely die (thus robbing the Incubator of a tremendous amount of potential resources).
On the other hand, in the case that she does form a contract, she'd defeat the Night of Walpurgis, and then become a witch and eliminate humanity, allowing the Incubator to eventually harvest Madoka's Grief Seed.
We don't know for sure which would be more profitable for the Incubator. We do, however, know that he had a quota to fill, and that after the defeat of the Night of Walpurgis as depicted in episode 10 he had more or less already met it.
Why does he have a quota anyway? Entropy isn't exactly about to go away, so shouldn't they need a continuous supply of energy to counteract it? They could resort to other civilisations when they need more, sure, but why let humanity go to waste?
