madoka is one of my main comfort characters. i love her a lot :) she's just such a great character and such a sweet one at that. becoming hope to protect everyone else, not just her friends, is such a huge sacrifice. and she's only 14!!! she's so brave. thinking about her makes me feel better.
goddess madoka/ultimate madoka is also a comfort to me. she's so serene and kind, it's calming to think of her when i'm really stressed out. also, her design is so pretty, i love how different it is to madoka's 'original' magical girl outfit. both outfits are designed to fit an archetype, with original mado being 'magical girl' and ultmado being 'goddess.'
