Another shocker in episode 6, this stuff really hooks you in. I don't remember watching a show with this amount of PLOT intensity since Code Geass.

Anyway, since its pretty much establish Kyubei is evil, the question is what is he after? Why is he so obssessed with turning Madoka?

Hmmm... I donno I think the authors intend to creep us out and bring us to that conclusion. but his little "I don't understand why you magical girls always freak out at this point" speech and his casual surprise when Madoka 'threw away' her friend.... makes me wonder if he's alien and just 'doesn't get it" and the real villian/problem/threat is something more complex. Just saying....

... after all the show has actually managed to surprise me a few times. Given how many anime tropes themes and cliches I've seen and recognised after 20 years of watching the stuff...

I think that's saying something.

I wouldn't exactly call him 'evil' even though he has that vibe, but I would say he's manipulative. I believe he's interested in Madoka because of her latent abilities.

What he is after is a confusing question though. There's a theory judging from Episode 6 that he's using the Mahou Shojos to gather Grief Seeds so he can survive, which makes the most sense so far.

Now, for a few questions of my own:

- Are there other creatures like Kyubey in the anime or knowledge that there is?

- What is Homura really? - We know she is a Mahou Shojo, and has this power that allows her to supposedly teleport, and her being one of the strongest Mahou Shojo so far. She also seems to be able to predict the future (or have a sense of how it will be.)

Also, Homura seems to know a lot about the Mahou Shojo system, like the Soul Gem issue that occur, which even Kyoko, a veteran, didn't even know. Kyubey hides information from the girls, which is not surprising, but his dialogue is interesting.

EDIT

About Mami,

Does anyone think that Madoka will still contract with Kyubey and become a magical girl? I think it would be unlikely but certain circumstances could push her to still do it. It almost seems like Madoka might be able to use some innate magic ability without contracting with Kyubey to me. Episode 6 really does bring up some questions about Mami like why didn't she tell Madoka and Sayaka the true nature of the soul gems?

Madoka and Sayaka tried to get her to give it to them, but Homura said that since their not Magical girls they couldn`t have it.

Wasn't that a grief seed? I don't think that was Mami's Soul Gem.
