This doesn't need to be moved. Other people are posting many topics like this in this section.
Well let's move on shall we. I have a point about this series that I'd like Alexmdle to hear. I'm going to state all the symbolism and themes I am adding, which I don't think I made clear last time, but would now like to point out.
At the end of this series, Jo Ayara finally does become a Witch. When she does, she becomes Quitterie, the Needle Witch
. Quitterie is also one of the new official Witches who appears in the Madoka Magika PSP game. So this Fan-manga is essentially going to be like an interpretation of what probably happened in the events that lead up to Quitterie coming into being.
Before you say anything, I'd like you to to read Quitterie's bio right here. http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Quitterie
Jo Ayara has a lot to do with Quitterie too. First of all, Jo acts like a Zealot to Kyubey's cause, she thinks of the Contract as a gift rather than a curse, and supports Kyubey's motives. This is just like what it said Quitterie originally was, and still thinks she is doing even as a Witch. In fact, Quitterie Phase 1 wears a cape and a Kyubey Mask, which relates to this. Also just because she thinks of the Contract as a good thing does not mean it is good, and that's what leads to her downfall.
Also Jo's Maho Shoujo weapons include these needles which she uses like throwing daggers, and a large metal staff with a bladed end that sort of resembles a needle. This has to do with that Quitterie is the Needle Witch.
Finally, Jo's special skill to disassemble and reassemble her body at will also plays well with Quitterie. It was said that Quitterie is actually named after Saint Quiteria, a mythological saint, who was beheaded, and after she was, the place where he head landed sprouted a water fountain. That plays into how Jo can make her limbs pop off and on, and she does this for her head the most often.
Next is the one Witch, Glacia. Glacia in this series, is hinted at originally being a tomboyish girl who originally thought she was better than everyone else, when she really wasn't, and wasn't too smart, and enjoyed the Ice and snow very much.
Glacia's theme being Winter, Ice, and snow plays into how she likes Ice and snow a ton. Also, the fact that Glacia is covered by an armored outer shell that has to be destroyed to reveal her true, vulnerable, form is symbolic too. The outer shell symbolizes what she believed herself to be (strong and mightier than most others), while the true form symbolizes what she truly was (weaker, and showing cowardice). In fact, Glacia's nature is of "Illusory Superiority," which means a false belief in that you are better than most others.
Also I decided to change the way she "dies" instead of just exploding like the other Witches do, to something more symbolic. Instead at the part where she is dying, her other shell comes off and she appears to go out of control, flying around erratically. Then her Ice Powers appear to "reactivate" but now turn against her, as for she then gets impaled by one of her own ice blades. It would be like this hard social shell becomes to hard to carry for the Witch, and the witch is emulating this very painful moment of her former self in her very last moment. Then after that, she appears to turn to petrified ice, falls to the ground, and melts away, along with her Witch Barrier. Then as usual, after she and the barrier completely dissolves, the Grief Seed appears.
And her minions being her former victims plays well into this too. Since all of them were previously those killed by her, now turned into these Ice Sculpture-like things, they serve almost like "bragging rights" for the Witch. As in the Witch looks at how many of them there are and thinks "I've triumphed over this many individuals, that certainly proves that I'm the strongest," and further extends her false belief of superiority. And the way her minions can only move when they are not in someone's line of sight fits with how they are like frozen solid and ice sculpture-like and stuff, and also allows Glacia to finish someone off herself when she wants too, just by looking at them (as for Glacia's line of sight also prevents them from moving).
Kolour, the Puppet Witch, also is symbolic in ways. From her features, it is hinted that Kolour probably enjoyed making dolls and such when she was still a normal girl. The Witch constantly makes dolls and appliances in her factory-like barrier, with assistance from her minions, and the minions are actually her dolls brought to life by her new powers. So essentially the Witch is now forced to constantly do this, but however, due to the clumsiness and incompetence of the minions, they don't do as good of a job most of the time, and she keeps being frustrated by failures.
It is also hinted that she knew someone near and dear to her, who got critically injured, or perhaps killed in a factory incident, which is what the dangerous machinery that even the minions get harmed in symbolizes. Perhaps when she made a contract with Kyubey, she wished for this person to be healed back to normal, since she loved him or her so much.
But later on, after seeing the unpleasant consequences of making a Contract with Kyubey, she builds up some kind of hate for that person, due to the fact that he/she was the core of the wish. This hate and the truth that she is loving that person may be the real trigger for her transformation into the Witch. The traps and hazards of the factory in the barrier are like an traumata of the Witch's former self after the accident of her loved one. She got oversensitive for any kind of danger, constantly sees her own creations meet a similar fate (for the minions often times get harmed by the factory machinery, due to their clumsiness and the dangers of the barrier) and the Witch fears that she might end up the same way.
Also the Witch's Patches, which are her weak spots, have large scars underneath them once they are blown off. The scars sort of symbolize some sort of emotional scars she must've had from all of this, and the patches are sort of symbolizing how she tried to roughly do away with them, but could never completely remove them.
See now, this is how these Witches still fit in with the theme.
So as you can see, there is still plenty of Symbolism here. Alex should read this, and see how it still does fit into the Maho Shoujo Madoka Magika theme.
