After seeing the first two Madoka movies late last year, I was curious to see what would happen in it’s third and final movie: Rebellion. I thought the ending of the second movie wrapped up nicely, and had a sense of completion. Luckily, the third movie didn’t feel like it was made for the sake of continuing, but genuinely had some new concepts to explore. And frankly, seeing as the first two movies were simply a rehash of the animated TV series, I’m sure fans would appreciate the new content. The animation and art look stunning as usual (It has some majestic action scenes *_*).
However, the ending has left me with rather mixed feelings. It has one of those confusing Evanglion-type finales, where you’re left wondering “What just happened?” I mean it kinnnnnd of makes sense, but I don’t know if its for the better or worse. It changes your whole perception of a character you thought you knew and loved. HAH. I hope that wasn’t too spoiler-ish.

Now, let’s have a look at this Collector’s Edition Blu-ray…shall we? ;D
This Collectors Edition Blu-Ray comes with a bunch of goodies:
- Collaboration Manner Videos (Monogatari Series x Madoka)
- Textless Opening and Ending
- Theatrical Trailer of Madoka Rebellion movie
- Commercials (of other anime movie titles)
- Deluxe booklet
- Postcard set (2 postcards by Madman)
- Special Slipcase (Back of the slipcase shows full page image of Homura)
In case you’re wondering about the ‘Monogatari Series x Madoka’ manner videos- these are a series of short animations that were screened in Japan cinemas before the movie started. They basically teach the audience movie etiquette, like not using your phone, talking, smoking, recording or spoiling the story for others. It is pretty cute ;D Monogatari and Madoka are both produced by Shaft, which probably explains the cross-over.
Inside the case, you’ll find two postcards by Madman:
