Unboxing: Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie – Part 3: Rebellion (Blu-ray)


It has been a long time coming but the final installment into the Puella Magi Madoka Magica movie franchise, otherwise known as Part 3: Rebellion, has finally arrived within the UK and while the film itself has been available since late last year we’ve only just got around to publishing the unboxinv video (so yea… sorry about that). Anyway; let’s take a look!

Unlike the original Aniplex of America release this UK Blu-ray variation of Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie – Part 3: Rebellion follows traits laid out by the previous Part 1 and Part 2 Movie Blu-ray set and Complete TV Series boxset with its light colourful colours on the front and back; however upon opening the product you will discover that the more ‘darker toned’ packaging from the inital promotional posters is being used for the front cover of the sleeve in the amaray case. It’s a nice blend of ‘light and dark’ and its a referrence to the topics at hand in the franchise itself.


On the inside however we are treated to a rather minimalistic sleeve, which if you look closely does have some artwork, an artbook and a rather nice looking disc. The disc features Madoka in her Magical Girl form on the front while an odd choice of font for the films title is placed on top of her. Some may say that the highlight of this release is the film; but in my eyes its the small artbook as it is filled with various different pieces of artwork from the film as well as a few character illustrations. It’s worth mentioning that the film is in English & Japanese audio and a small amount of bonus features can be found on the disc; but nothing worthwhile.

In short this Blu-ray release of Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie – Part 3: Rebellion feels rather simplistic; but at the same time it is a nice product to have on your shelf next to the other releases of the franchise. Of course its no-where near as nice as the Aniplex of America release; but considering the price difference then its not surprising.
