Thoughts on the ending of Madoka Magica(SPOILERS)At last I have wrapped up the Madoka Magica series,and after watching this all future Magical Girl series have a hell of a lot to do to surpass it.

I know now what I must say,
“Mommy, I don’t want Broccoli!”
Mortimer is still alive,
Should have read that note from 5,
Guess I’m off to make things tighter!
Wait, my series was cancelled,
