Madoka Magica Conclusion Airing 4/21

Posted on: April 10, 2011

The Magica Quartet team announced on their official website and twitter account that Puella Magi Madoka Magica episodes 11 and 12 will air back-to-back on sponsor TV station MBS (in the Osaka area) on April 21 at 26:40 JST (aka 2 hours, 40 minutes after midnight, technically 4/22). TBS (in the Tokyo area) will air 10, 11, and 12 consecutively starting at 27:00 on the same day.

Homura and Madoka, together again...?

The broadcast of episode 11 had been delayed due to the massive earthquake and tsunami last month, and no additional word on the delay came until today.

Animation production company Shaft has had issues with timeliness before, in particular with web episodes of Bakemonogatari that were delayed for months.

11 more days for more Madoka.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is the most-talked about anime of 2011, setting the record for most discussion threads on the Japanese BBS 2ch (previously held by The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya).

Someone I speak to online commented that the last two episodes have been ready for ages, but MBS refused to air them in light of the content and the earthquake (which implies there’s some horrible stuff in these episodes). So, not SHAFT’s fault this time.

Well, the first delay was likely due to Shaft missing the deadline because of the quake, as mentioned in the last blog post. Subsequent delays may be because of what you said, I don’t know and I don’t have enough information to have an informed opinion yet. I guess we’ll find out when the episodes air!
