Latin Latin Madoka More Latin IV: The Voyage Homura

So, this should actually have gone up a week after the Steven Universe live reaction video, but I basically forgot and went straight on with the SU videos. Anyway, this is video of a panel I gave at AB, my fourth annual Madoka Magica panel. It’s totally not at all an extended ad for my book! (It totally is.)

  1. At 49:30 you say that Kyouko did nothing wrong and I have to disagree, her wish was extremely unethical. Secondary sources attest that, contrary to her minimizing description to Sayaka, she did was gave her father a terrifying mind-control power which he cannot avoid using except by abandoning his life’s calling.

    Even if one ignores the secondary sources and trusts Kyouko’s claim that her magic compelled people only to listen to his words and give them consideration instead of dismissing him out of hand, it’s very questionable and it would not be unreasonable for Mr. Sakura to conclude that he could not in good conscience continue to preach with an unnaturally compelling voice.

    Being put in that terrible position is of course not a justification for murder/suicide.

  2. You make a good point. Certainly it was not my intent to assert that Kyouko has never in her life done anything wrong, simply that she is entirely undeserving of Mr Sakura’s response.
