30 Day Anime Challenge Day 18: Favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet, or Summoning (Kyubey of Madoka Magica)
Hey, Kyubey did warn those girls.
I am totally in the “Kyubey did nothing wrong” camp. Dude did warned those girls that the lifestyle of the magical girl isn’t one of sunshine and happiness. Hell, I mean Madoka had to learn that the hard way; watching Mami get decapitated like an ISIS victim. But hey, shit happens man. Sailor Moon had her daughter Chibi-Usa die in her arms. Utena lost her parents as a kid and was kinda suicidal after that.
That’s how the magical girl world works.
I also can’t stand all ya armchair ethics analyzing idiots who say Kyubey was tricking girls to become magical girls. He wasn’t tricking them. He was simply encouraging their dreams of becoming a somebody in the world rather than a nobody.
It wasn’t like he was pimping them out to Johns on the streets or anything.
Besides, ain’t his fault those dumbass girls didn’t read the contract in full. There was more than likely a death/personal injury wavier within the contract – perhaps in very small print. But still. He shouldn’t be blamed for what Madoka and her crew went through. That nigga was just doing his job, man. Never got why people hated on him.
He was just a neutral observer of the unvierse. Nothing more. Nothing less.
