Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica re-watch episode 7 - Descent in Madness (spoilers)

*Huge Spoilers will be discussed here, if you haven't watched Madoka Magica yet, go back and watch the damn series*

I'm getting a Anakin Skywalker vibe with Sayaka, to quote Yoda: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to

"This episode pulls no punches by explaining the soul gem a bit more while Kyubey shows a pretty mean example to Sayaka, leaving her in depression." (Source)

It sure did, its also a time where everyone would be calling the show Mahou Shoujo Sayaka★Magica since she did have the most development and still people complained about Madoka not becoming a magical girl at this point.

Kyouko's past was the main focal point of this episode, like Sayaka she also made a wish that didn't benefit her but instead her father's religous teachings to become more well known, that however turned into tragedy when
Kyouko's father found out causing him to kill her family, people of the village and himself.

Kyouko's popularity started to grow from this point

To further Sayaka's depression of not talking to Kyosuke in her soulless body, Hitomi asks her if she has any feelings for him (since she also has an interest in Kyosuke) and gives Sayaka a day or she will confess instead. This leaves us with one of these best and unique battle sequences and a look at the madness that Sayaka has befallen.

Re-watching this episode and watching Sayaka's suffering really makes me feel sorry for her, it does make her character more interesting rather than the constant happy attitude she used to hold.

Two days until impact......
