魔法少女まどかマギカ（Puella Magi Madoka Magica）第7話 “本当の気持ちと、向き合えますか？"
Sayaka: You tricked us, didn’t you?
Kyubey: Not necessarily. I did make it perfectly clear I wanted you to become magical girls. I just didn’t explain the exact form you’d be taking to do that as all.
Sayaka: Why wouldn’t you tell us something like that?
K: Because you never asked. Besides, if you never found out it wouldn’t bother you, [would be]?. In fact, Mami never found out, even at the end. You humans don’t even realize you have souls. Do not something you could physically feel inside you. Your bodies are such fragile containers. Just a cluster of neurons, organs, and a circulatory system. It’s an amazing construction. But once your body stop functioning, your soul disappears. To keep that from happening, I put your soul into a physical form. It makes us so easier to protect, and easier to keep track of. That way, you can battle witches and none have to worry about it.
Sayaka: Well, nobody asked you to do that, did they.
Kyubey: You still don’t understand the dangers of combat, do you. Let’s say you’ve been impaled by spiers. Do you know how much stimulus for the register and your pain receptors?
Kyubey: That is what you’d feel like. One strike, and you are completely incapacitated.
Kyubey: The reason you stayed standing during your fight with Kyoko is because you were spared the pain your body was experiencing. And that was possible because your soul and body weren’t directly connected. You were able to survive that fight because of your modification.
Kyubey: Once you get used to it, you figure out how to block out all the pain. There is a downside though, your reaction time suffers so I don’t recommend it.
Sayaka: How could you do this to us? Why?
Kyubey: You did accept the destiny of fighting witches, provided I granted one wish for you. That wish has come true, hasn’t it?
Kazuko: Stand. Bow.
Madoka: You knew about this, didn’t you?
Madoka: How come you didn’t tell us about it before.
Homura: Would you believe me if I did? I’ve tried telling I was before, but no one has ever does.
Madoka: But why would Kyubey do something so clue to us.
Homura: Because it doesn’t think what it did was clue. The creature doesn’t understand human values. A sort of fair exchange for granting someone’s wish. That’s what it thinks anyway.
Madoka: But there’s nothing fair about it. What he did to her isn’t right. All Sayaka wanted was to help someone she loves to help him get better again.
Homura: An agreement is still an agreement. It made the impossible possible, didn’t it? That boy would’ve never gotten better no matter what, even if Sayaka Miki spends the rest of her life taking care of him. The truth is, a miracle like that is worth more than the life for human. That’s the price it sells them for.
Madoka: Does that mean Sayaka can’t go back to her normal life?
Homura: I already told you once. You really should forget about Sayaka Miki.
Madoka: But she is my friend and she saved my life. If Sayaka hadn’t become a magical girl, Hitomi and I were both be dead right now.
Homura: Don’t confuse gratitude with your responsibility. There is nothing you can do to save her now. And if you are trying to repay for her to ease your guilt. Don’t. That’s arrogant thinking and you should stop it.
Madoka: Why do you always act so cold?
Homura: Well, maybe I behave this way because I’m not human anymore.
Sayaka: How could I ever face Kyosuke again. Now that I’ve been turned into this thing.
Kyoko: Hey dummy, how much long are you gonna stay inside?
Kyoko: Can you come up for a sec? I wanna talk.
[—On the way to Kyoko’s church—]
Kyoko: What happen to are sucks. I bet you regret ever making that contract, don’t ya?
Kyoko: But you know, me? Huh, I think I’m okay with it. I mean, I can do whatever I want with my powers who cares about the details. I don’t really think it’s a deal breaker, you know.
Sayaka: You think you got what you pay for, huh?
Kyoko: Hoo ya, I did. That’s a great way to look at it. Think about it, if you live for yourself you only got yourself to blame, so I can really blame anyone else and I don’t have any regrets. See, if you look at it that way, you won’t be just self up about it.
Sayaka: You brought me all the way out here, just to talk.
Kyoko: Uh-huh. Got a lot to talk about.
Kyoko: You want one?
Kyoko: I see you wasting food like that again, I will kill you.
Kyoko: Want to know where we are? It’s my dad’s church. He was an honest man and way to nice. He is the kinda guy who’d read the papers and start tearing up. Cause he couldn’t figure out how to make things better. He thought religion hadn’t deducted enough, he wanted something new, something that made [???] today’s world. So one day, he started preaching stuff to the congregation that wasn’t in the bible. People got upset, stopped coming to a sermons. The church kicked him out, and after that, well, nobody cared about what he had to say. Huh, go figure, right? I mean from the outside, I bet he looked like he was trying to start a cult, didn’t matter if what he said was righter, even if he made me sense. Everyone treated him like he was a psycho. It got so bad for my family that there are lots of time then we didn’t have any food. I couldn’t understand it. My dad wasn’t doing or saying anything wrong? It was just different from one everyone was used to hearing as all. If people would have just calm down, gave him 5 minute and really listen to what he had to say, they would have seen he was right. Yeah but, in the end, nobody did.
Kyoko: I got mad. I got really pissed off. I hated that nobody gave my dad a chance and try to understand what he was talking about. Then Kyubey showed up and I made my wish. I wanted everyone to listen to my dad and take the stuff that he was saying seriously.
Kyoko: The next morning, they came back. The church was packed with so many people. Everyday there was more people coming to hear my dad’s preach. And me? I started doing the magical girl thing. I figured no matter how awesome my dad’s sermons were, they won’t gonna take out of the witches anytime soon. It was my job, so like an idiot, I through myself for the hunting witches full time. We’ve gonna save the world together, him doing it out in the open and me in the shadows.
Kyoko: And one day, my dad found out about what was really going on. Men, I never forget it. When he realized everyone was there not because of what he was preaching but because of my magic, he totally losted, And he called me, his own daughter an evil witch who corrupted his frock. Huh, isn’t that hilarious? I’m the one out of every night hunting real witches and he calls me a witch. After that my dad had a breakdown. He got really depressed. He was drinking a lot and then he went crazy. He killed my family and then he committed suicide, leaving me behind, alone.
Kyoko: The thing I wished for destroyed my whole family. I’ve lead all this suffering down on my family because I made a wish for my dad without knowing what he really wanted. So right then and there, I promised myself I’d never use magic to help anyone else ever again. This power is mine, and I’ll use it for me, me alone.
Kyoko: Miracles aren’t free, you know? If you wish for something good to happen, a whole lot of bad stuffs gonna happen too. I guess that’s how the whole world stays in balanced. Good, bad, everything zeros out.
Sayaka: Why’re you telling me all this stuff for?
Kyoko: ‘Cause I want you to stop caring and do what you want to do. Hey, you got what you paid for didn’t ya?
Sayaka: I’m a little confused. You just got don’t telling me all about [???] for yourself. Why are you worrying about me all of a sudden?
Kyoko: ‘Cause you and me, we both made the same mistakes, didn’t we. You gotta stop feeling the way you do cause it’ll only bring you more pain. You’re already paid your deuce, way more than what you’ve got for him. No what I think, you take what you’ve gotten and figure out how to get something out of it.
Sayaka: Kinda like how you do?
Kyoko: Exactly how I do. Look I figured out how things work, and I wanna save you some grief. I can’t stand seeing you go through this.
Sayaka: I had a wrong idea about you from the beginning, I’m sorry about that. So forgive me. But still, I don’t have any regrets about using my wish for someone else. And I’ve decided that from now on, I’m not gonna regret anything, ever again.
Kyoko: Why are you being so stubborn?
Sayaka: Honestly, I don’t think I paid too big a price for what I got. I think magic can be used for great things, depending on how you use it. Which reminds me, those apples, how did you get them ha? Mind telling me where you’ve got money from?
Sayaka: Yeah, thought so. In that case, I can’t eat those apples. I’m not gonna have any part of them.
Kyoko: You idiot!? We’re magical girls! There’s no one like us, nobody can what we do!!
Sayaka: I’ll do things my way. And fight my own battles. If you don’t like it, then you can come find me and try to kill me if you want. I won’t hate you for it, but I won’t lose to you either.
[—On the way to school—]
Madoka: Good morning Sayaka, wait up!
Hitomi: Good morning Sayaka, how are you?
Sayaka: Hey, good morning.
Hitomi: Why didn’t you come to school yesterday?
Sayaka: Oh, I though a little sick as all.
Madoka: But Sayaka…
Sayaka: It’s cool, I feel fine. You don’t have to worry about a thing.
Sayaka: Hey, I got an idea, how about we’re going…
Hitomi: Oh, I didn’t know Kyosuke was out of a hospital.
Friend1: Hey, Kyosuke. You are okay to be back here?
Kyosuke: Yeah, if I stayed home I wouldn’t help get my legs back into shape. I’m hoping to get off these crutches and walking on my own by next week.
Madoka: I’m grad Kyosuke is doing better.
Madoka: You haven’t talked him yet, have you? Why don’t you go over and say hi to him?
Sayaka: No, it’s okay. Maybe later.
Sayaka: Okay, what you wanna talk about?
Hitomi: I want to talk about love. I’ll explain. There are something I haven’t told you or Madoka, but I can’t stay silent any longer.
Sayaka: Huh? Um, okay.
Hitomi: For long time now, I’ve always liked Kyosuke Kamijo but now I’m in love with him.
Sayaka: Oh, you are, huh? I never would’ve guessed Hitomi. That’s awesome. I hope Kyosuke knows just how lucky he is.
Hitomi: You’ve known Kyosuke for a while. Weren’t you friends since childhoods?
Sayaka: Yeah, a sort of… We hang out together every now and then.
Hitomi: And it’s nothing more than that?
Hitomi: I’ve thought long and hard about this. I can’t lie to myself any longer. So how about you? I need to know. Can you face your true feelings for him, Sayaka?
Sayaka: Uh…, true feelings? What do you mean?
Hitomi: I take my friendship with you very seriously, and I don’t wanna get into a situation [???] stealing him away from you. I wanna respect a relationship you have with Kyosuke, because you’ve known him a lot longer than I have. That’s why if you like him, you have a right to grab to him before I do.
Hitomi: I’m going to tell Kyosuke how I feel after school tomorrow. That gives you one to decide. Will you confess your true feelings to him, or won’t you. Think about what you want, so you don’t have any regrets later.
Sayaka: I, I just, I…
[—In front of Sayaka’s flat—]
Madoka: Is it okay if I come along? I won’t get in the way. I just don’t want you to be all alone. Can I come?
Sayaka: Why? Why you’re always nice to me? I’m not deserve having a friend like you.
Sayaka: I started to have second thoughts today. I thought what if I hadn’t saved Hitomi, it was just for a second but still… I guess I’m not here all after all. What would Mami think if she were still here.
Sayaka: I’m going to lose Kyosuke to Hitomi. And nothing I can do about it. Because I…, I’m already dead. I’m a zombie. I can’t ask him to hold me if I’m like this, I can never ask him to kiss me.
Sayaka: I feel better now. I’m sorry.
Madoka: You don’t have to be.
Sayaka: I’m okay. Thanks for listening, Madoka. C’mon let’s go. We’ve got some witches that need beaten down
Homura: You are the last person I’d expected just sit and watch.
Kyoko: Tonight’s the real deal. She is fighting a witch, not a familiar. If she beats it, she’ll get the Grief-Seed, so at least she is fighting for something.
Homura: I’m surprised you’d give up your place so easy, just to help her out.
Kyoko: What the hell she doing? She’s gonna get herself killed!
Kyoko: Jeez, I can’t watch this anymore. Hangout here Okay? Let me show you a couple of basic moves.
Sayaka: I can do this alone. Get out of my way.
Kyoko: What’s going on with her?
Sayaka: It’s true, I can block out the pain! I don’t feel any pain anymore!
Madoka: Stop, please, stop…
