Last episode, we found out Homura came back in time to stop Kyuubey from making a contract with Madoka. I accepted that readily, but it didn’t quite answer the question why Homura was so hellbent on saving Madoka and being a lot more serious concerning Madoka’s contract. Why was she so desperately trying to stop the contract, it can’t be just to prevent the birth of the strongest witch right? That is one reason, but we also find out it’s because she has gone through countless repetitions of the same events…events where we found out she saw her very first friend(s) die over and over again.
Those repetitions made the rather shy and weak constitutioned Homura into the cold badass she is right now. I don’t like that, going back in time and redoing shit over and over. I readily accepted it last episode thinking she did it only once, but now that I know she can [apparently] do it countless times…meh.
The episode was still pretty good though. I wanted to know more about Homura and I got it. Now that I know what makes her tick, I like her even more!
Last ep we got aliens, this ep a time traveler, introduce an ESPer and Haruhi will be thrilled.
