Happy Walpurgis Night, "Madoka Magica" Fans!

"Yotsuba&!" Twitter feed gets into the spirit of the day while Mobage game goes a bit off message

It's magic girls' least favorite holiday! Named for 8th century Saint Walpurga, Walpurgisnacht is the spring mirror of Halloween, and likewise has become thought of as an occasion for witches to gather. As such, hit anime Madoka Magica took the name for the uber-destructive composite witch driving much of the series' terror.

 

She will turn all of fate's misfortune to nothing.

She will flood the earth with magic,
and take all of humankind into her play.
A moving stage construction.

If everything is a play, no unhappy things will exist.
It may be a tragedy, but it'll all be part of the script.

The play stops on Walpurgisnacht,
and the earth does not turn even once more.
The story will not change.
Tomorrow, and the day after, is the night of Walpurgis.
