Watching one of my favourite Madoka Magica episodes again is such a treat, it pulled all the punches of what a fantastic episode should be dramatic, shocking and fully gripping from the get go.
Sayaka continues her hatred by becoming incredibly depressed at what she has become, to a point where she doesn't care about her Soul Gem becoming corrupt , leaving to a tense 24 minute struggle to snap her out of it.
Kyubey also gets the closest of getting Madoka to become a magical girl, since she wants to help Sayaka, only to be shot like swiss cheese by Homura, I bet there were cheers of anime fans around the world (I was one of those people) but we sadly see him alive and eating his other dead corpse, Homura reveals him as Incubator.
Then we come to the final scene of Sayaka's Soul Gem becoming a grief seed and getting a glimpse of her witch form and an epic cliffhanger of Kyubey's true intentions.
So much happened here in such a little amount of time yet, its so well done in its execution that my second time watching it still gives me goosebumps or it could be the fact that the last episodes will air in under 1 day.
(I will re-watch episodes 9 and 10 somewhere tomorrow afternoon/evening)
