Madoka Magica x Monogatari shorts coming soon


New shorts before 3rd Madoka Magica film.

Looks like the third Puella Magi Madoka Magica film in Japan will get something extra! SHAFT has announced they'll be releasing four Madoka Magica x Monogatari shorts that will air prior to the movie encouraging courtesy and proper behavior in movie theaters. Essentially, Kyubey, Oshino, and other characters from the two shows will tell you to turn off your phone and shut up. And would you really have it any other way?

The third Madoka film opens October 26th, and each week over the course of a month will feature a different short, up to the total of four. Week one will be Oshino Ougi, week two will showcase Araragi Karen and Araragi Tsukihi, and week three will have Hachikuji Mayoi. Of course, week four will be none other than Senjougahara Hitagi. You'll have to visit the theater four times so see them all! What a devious trick, SHAFT. I wonder how much animation will be involved here, or if they're just glorified audio dramas.

I suppose there's always a chance these will make their way out of Japanese theaters and onto the net, but there's no such word at this point. If you're heading to see the Madoka film later this month, let us know how they look!
