Will I understand Rebellion without having watched the first two Madoka films?

I've seen the series.
>>
Yes.
>>
>>100591857
The first two films were just stapled versions of the series.
>>
>Will I understand Rebellion
No.
>>
>>100591905
It's not hard to understand, what are you talking about?
>>
>>100591904
>>100591884

Thank you, I knew the first two were truncated versions of the series, but I was wondering if there were any additional scenes added that might lay the groundwork for Rebellion
>>
>>100591969
There aren't, no.
>>
>>100591983

Alright, thanks a lot.
>>
>>100592004
That's not entirely true. Watch the OP for the first two at least. Luminous is made reference to in some important ways.
>>
>>100592651
but if you have seen the .gif it's enough. You know, the .gif with Madoka and Homura.
>>
I didn't like Rebellion all that much.

I thought the original series/movies wrapped it all up nicely. A continuation just seemed unnecessary to me and the logic behind the plot seemed a little forced.

I suppose you're right. This is the creditless version, but I don't have the full one where it shows the zoomed out, from-behind view.

>>100592767
The original series is a complete work. Rebellion is another complete work.

OP, I don't mean to spoil you, so if you watch Luminous and then Rebellion and don't get it, this will clear it up. It's poignant symbolism.

This guy here.Rebellion was written as a complete film in and of itself that explores one possible outcome of Madoka's wish, and how it might affect those who once knew her. I actually enjoyed it more than the original series because of how well paced it was and how well it fleshed out it's ideas

Most cancerous opinions from unthinking plebs
>>
>>100593405
I'd say that a continuation wasn't exactly necessary, but I strongly disagree with the idea that it 'ruins' the series. As it is, I think we're better off with Rebellion than without it, but to be fair the series can still stand on its own.
>>
>>100593307
I don't understand how this could possibly "ruin" the original. At worst, a sequel film like this does nothing to advance character and plot, or expand the universe (See the FMA:B or Trigun film). Rebellion did all three of these, without actually doing some major rewrite asspull
>>
>>100593405
They seem to forget the last minute of episode 12 too.
>>
THIS SERIES SUCKS SO FUCKING MUCH

THAT SHIT PACING

THAT M. NIGHT SHAMALAN TIER TWIST

THE CHARACTERS AREN'T GOOD AND THERE'S SO MUCH FUCKING POINTLESS FILLER IN A TWELVE EPISODE SERIOUS

THE WRITING IS HORRIBLE AND IM PRETTY FUCKING SURE YOU ALL ONLY LIKE IT BECAUSE "MUH LITTLE WAIFUS: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC"

YOURE GOD DAMN RIGHT IM MAD
>>
>>100593475
It adds character traits that make the original seem bad.
For example, Rebellion makes Homura totally crazy gay for Madoka. Yet in original, it was nothing of sorts.
Original ends with Homura being content in how things ended. Yet Rebellion ruins it by making Homura regretting what happened.
>>
>>100593395
>>100593399
The original series was a 7 or MAYBE 8/10 at best. Rebellion was better paced, better animated, and the atmosphere was incredible. I'm not saying it's a 10/10, but it's an exceptionally well-made film that clearly had a lot put into it
>>
>>100593475
>without actually doing some major rewrite asspull
Careful there. While I agree with you, that kind of statement is just inviting people to start up the 'Deus Ex Machina' and "Madokami's surprise is a plot-hole' shit again.
>>
>>100593483
Well, Rebellion ruins that part the most.
>>
>>100593557
It's a 3/10 at best.
>>
>>100593557
I'd say you should consider reevaluating your opinion.
>>
>>100593526
>Rebellion makes Homura totally crazy gay for Madoka. Yet in original, it was nothing of sorts.
Really. Homura wasn't any more gay for Madoka in Rebellion than she was in the original.

I'M the one with yuri goggles. How is she gay in rebellion?

Kyouko and Sayaka, however, are way more gay in Rebellion, but that's a whole other argument.

>>100593574
>Rebellion ruins the serios ending which was supposed to be symbolic
>>
>>100593526
Homura was never happy with the end result. She accepted it (not that she had a choice), but it didn't make her happy. In Rebellion, she created an outcome she wanted. It's not out of character for her at all to do something that she thinks Madoka wants anyway.
>>
>>100593526

Dullard.

You are completely wrong and just glossed over most of the characterization in the original series.
>>
Why are you faggots arguing about this? The story is shit video game tier stuff BEFORE Rebellion shat on it even more.

So much denial that Madoka is just one of the best animes ever made.

If you don't want to admit it just keep the forced dislike for yourself before you tell people to get back to /v/, faggot.

What do you consider a 10/10 then? Won Piss apparently or maybe Gurren Laggan 'cause you not so mainstrem.
>>
>>100593526
Finally there is someone nice. I loved Rebellion, the animation was spectacular and the characters are just so charming!
>>
>>100593962
Anime is for nerds. There isn't any 10/10 anime. It's an inferior creative media type.

original series was great, but 30% of episodes was boring to watch.
Rebellion fixed every mistake inluding budget.
