Homura Akemi is one of the main characters in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica universe. She plays a major role in the various endings possible in the magical girl game (and series in general) due to her ability to manipulate time. Homura has long been considered by fans to have strong romantic feelings for Madoka Kaname due to the extreme lengths that she takes to save Madoka from a cursed fate. The erotic undertones and romantic subtext to Homura and Madoka’s relationship has led some fans to affectionately refer to this series as “Miserable Lesbians: The Anime”, referencing the dark conclusions of nearly every piece of media in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica universe.
