Today I watched the new movie of Madoka Magica in cinema. The title is "Madoka Magica Shinpen: Hangyaku no Monogatari" [Puella Magi Madoka Magica the new book: a story of rebellion]

I like this animation so much that I wrote some times about this.

Madoka Magica the movie
However, the story of Madoka Magica was perfectly completed at the end of the scenario. Therefore, to be honest I did not hope the release of sequential series.
So how was the next Madoka Magica?
The beginning of the scene, Madoka and her colleagues, Sayaka, Kyoko, Mami, and Homura are willing to work together as magical girls. Their mission is to purify the nightmares which are made by negative emotion of human. A tiny creature "Bebe" is always accompanied with "Mami Tomoe" the leader of Magical girls for a long time.
If you have seen the original Madoka Magica, you must notice that this storyline is quite irrational.
In the true story, Madoka sacrificed herself to change the rule of the world to vanish a warped relationship between magical girls and witches. Sayaka was dead through the process. Furthermore, Madoka has reincarnated into the absolute entity, Enkan no Kotowari [Circle Rationale].
So it is impossible for the heroines to meet together again!
In addition, it is no other than a black joke that Mami and Bebe are old friends. In the past, Bebe killed Mami! Every guy who saw the scene were strongly shocked. Never forget!
Therefore, it is easy to guess that this opening scene is a fake. Perhaps an illusion.
In the story, Homura was the first person to notice the trick. She tried to reveal the backbone of this ridiculous fantasy.
However, the story would develop in the direction no one can imagine.
I dare not to describe the truth in detail.
But I am convinced that this opening scene is a dream of everyone, not only for the magical girls, but also the audience.
It is a traditional theme not willing to be awakened from a sweet dream in literature. We always see only the things we hope so. As a film, "Matrix" is a good example.
It may be ourselves to make a story of rebellion through having an impossible dream that magical girls are collaborating.
