This is dumb but it’s got my mood on something, but I realized something while watching a scene from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
And of course, someone else might have noticed it and said something, but I just want to make a post for it anyways.
There are spoilers of course, if you haven’t reached the tenth episode of the series, I suggest not reading on.
We good? Cool.
In the third timeline, we see Homura and Madoka with tainted soul gems after just taking down Walpurgisnacht and it leads to Madoka using a hidden grief seed to cleanse Homura’s gem.
And that’s where I noticed it in the scene.
Madoka used Oktavia (Sayaka)’s grief seed.
That was Madoka’s final grief seed, meaning she held onto her best friend’s grief seed that whole time, only using it to make sure the girl with control over time could go back and keep this all from happening.
