Will I understand Rebellion without having watched the first two Madoka films?
I've seen the series.
The first two films were just stapled versions of the series.
>Will I understand Rebellion
It's not hard to understand, what are you talking about?
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
There aren't, no.
Alright, thanks a lot.
That's not entirely true. Watch the OP for the first two at least. Luminous is made reference to in some important ways.
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.
The original series is a complete work. Rebellion is another complete work.
The chairs are pretty important.
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.
Sorry, didn't spoiler. Here.
>I don't meant to spoil you
>spoils him anyway
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
It was a shamefur dispray.
Don't do it OP.
Rebellion is shit. It completely ruins the original.
No one will
>I actually enjoyed it more than the original series
There is no way someone can be this delusional.
>A continuation just seemed unnecessary
>It completely ruins the original
Most cancerous opinions from unthinking plebs
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.
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
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
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.
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
>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.
Well, Rebellion ruins that part the most.
It's a 3/10 at best.
I'd say you should consider reevaluating your opinion.
>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.
>Rebellion was better paced, better animated, and the atmosphere was incredible.
Not sure if troll or just retarded.
No. Take off your y/u/ri googles.
>Yet in original, it was nothing of sorts.
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.
>Rebellion ruins the serios ending which was supposed to be symbolic
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.
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.
I would say the same to you
No, I meant the base series. Horrid anime.
my point still stands
Dumb faggot. Get some taste or go back to /v/.
I know right! How the hell did it become so popular? Must be the gold ole "shit taste" syndrome again.
and you're the who decided to come shit up this thread with your shit taste
It became popular because it has little magical girls and people are pathetic.
>he has better taste then me! b-better call him a shitposter!
not him but god damn son you are dumb
I'm not the one who's blatantly samefagging
gr8 b8 m8
Back to /v/.
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.
Finally there is someone nice. I loved Rebellion, the animation was spectacular and the characters are just so charming!
Anime is for nerds. There isn't any 10/10 anime. It's an inferior creative media type.
says the dude shitposting
Neat b8 m8 I don't fall for you.
>inb4 "you already did, faggot!"
You already did, faggot.
I agree with that.
original series was great, but 30% of episodes was boring to watch.
Rebellion fixed every mistake inluding budget.
>was written as a complete film in and of itself that explores one possible outcome of
So it's like Space Dandy, without a dandy space.
>So it's like Space Dandy, without a dandy space.
That's why it's good, actually space dandy is completely shit no matter what
