Twas the night of Walpurgis, and all through fandom
people were waiting all in tandem
Downloads were watched, F5’s were pressed
[gg] fansubs was repeatedly refreshed
While those not interested were snug in their beds,
No interest in blondes that had just lost their heads.
Not knowing of contracts nor a soul gem,
The word ‘incubator’ meant nothing to them.
We were all entranced for 2 months and a week,
But twas the final 2 episodes that we did seek.
We demanded them now, perhaps arrogantly
The earthquake had delayed them indefinitely.
Fund raisers were run and money was raised
Surprisingly few series were delayed
But to think that the good people at Shaft
Would not be delayed indeed was daft
The episode past was the Homura one
A time travelling lesbian who wielded a gun.
The excitement had risen to fever pitch,
As we waited for Walpurgis, the most powerful witch
But delayed regardless the finale had been
Waiting we were to see if Madoka came clean
Would the world be destroyed when Walpurgis attacked
Or would Madoka accept Kyubey’s contract
So on that night in april, the forums were still
imageboards were silent, twitter quiet with thrill
The finale of Madoka had aired in Japan,
We waited for subs to come out of the can.
Forget Morning Rescue, forget Mami’s head
I want to remember something else instead
That night in april when we all waited,
For some asian cartoon to be fan translated
