        Dialogue Notes

        01:57 Homura: I’m losing to my name.
        ほむら(homura, written in Hiragana) has no meaning. However, 「ほむら」 can be written as 「炎」 which means “flame.” This is an irregular reading that most Japanese people probably don’t know. Because of that, the previous line Madoka says regarding her name is sort of cute: 「何かさ、燃え上がれーって感じでカッコいいと思うなぁ」 “Somehow, you know… it has a feeling of being really fired up, and I think it’s cool!”

        By the way, here are some alternate readings for the other girl’s names:

        ・まどか(Madoka, Hiragana) can be written as 円(round, tranquil).
        ・さやか(Sayaka, Hiragana) can be written as 明か(clear, bright, fresh).
        ・杏子(Kyouko, Kanji) can be written as 強固(firmness, stability, security, strength). Also, the characters that make up her name mean “apricot child.” 杏子 can also be read as あんず(anzu) which means the food apricot.
        ・マミ(Mami, Katakana) can be written as 魔魅(deceiving spirit).
