In the flurry of excited anticipation surrounding the Madoka concept movie shown last month at the Madogatari event, it has been confirmed by studio SHAFT’s president Mitsutoshi Kubota as the core of a brand new Puella Magi Madoka Magica project. In an interview that will be published this Thursday in the January 2016 issue of Kadokawa’s Newtype magazine, Kubota, who is credited as this new project’s producer, said that the short movie was made to act as a trailer, with the Madoka Quartet team hoping to include all of its aspects in the completed new work.
So yes, this does mean we should see Madoka as a ballerina as part of this project, with all of the magical girls, including Mami, Hitomi and Nagisa, together again just as we love to see them. In fact, Kubota hinted that character designer Ume Aoki had created outfits “a little different” from your average magical girl for all the main characters. And there seem to be grand plans for Mami, with a mention that her status as a “God of War” will be further enforced. He even made such a striking statement as to compare her with the Chinese general Guan Yu, whose historical and fictionalised war tales are glorified in the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
