Impressions: Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Rebellion
by Tim Sheehy

Last week, fans finally had an opportunity to attend screenings of Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion, the third and final chapter of the trilogy. Given the ending of the previous film -- or the series itself, seeing as the previous two films were merely recaps -- one might wonder what's left to tell. The confrontation with Walpurgisnacht and Madoka's choice to bring an end to the conflict in her own way seemed like the perfect, yet bittersweet, ending we had all hoped for. With that in mind, it's hard to imagine how Rebellion would continue where the previous films left off, especially without Madoka herself to contend with.

Surprisingly, Studio Shaft managed to pull it off by delivering over two hours of content aimed at tying up some loose ends by focusing almost entirely on Homura Akemi. Whether or not they ultimately succeeded remains debatable, and some might even argue -- myself included -- that the film created more mysteries than it solved. Read on for my thoughts on the film, and the premiere event itself.
