homura akemi meets bill murray by rtil homura akemi meets bill murray by rtil
um

alright so i just finished watching madoka magica and if you dont want anything spoiled then stop reading

so i had this idea that at some point during one of homura's time travel attempts, her parallel universe she went into merged with one of bill murray's in groundhog day, but in japan in a lost in translation setting. so eventually during that timeline, they meet eachother and both realize they've been reliving the same day/time period for a long time and decide to discuss their unique predicaments over a lovely dinner of scotch and pocky.

i think they'd get along quite well, dont you?

Rofl, when I saw episode 11 I thought of Groundhog Day too! Especially Homura trying to recreate her friendship with Madoka no matter how cold and obsessive she got and how great the space between them got with each repeat ("Just call me Homura") and Bill Murray always trying to repeat the perfect day with his coworker so she falls in love with him again, and coming off as a crazy weird guy...

I think that the pervert-Homura that we see so much of on the Internet was a result of her watching Groundhog Day:

Phil: What if there were no tomorrow?
Gus: No tomorrow? That would mean there would be no consequences, there would be no hangovers. We could do whatever we wanted!
Phil: [thinking] That's true. We could do... whatever we wanted. *drives over mailbox*"

As she watches the film, a thoughtful expression slowly turns into a grin on Homura's face.

Now this is one pairing I never would've expect to see in a million years. :XD: Though I gotta admit, it's nice to know Homura and Bill Murray has at least one thing in common. :+favlove:

I don’t get the joke since I uh don’t know madoka magica (but I have seen that cat before! I hear it’s the devil and makes contracts to steal your soul or something like that). Bill Murray is great though and it looks just like him, lmao that forehead is perfect. I like the way you rendered his tones and face more too (very painterly). Nice stuff and always a pleasure to see you change it up a bit!

he was very hard to capture so thanks. like, just drawing him normally, it doesnt look like him. yu have to do a caricature of him to make him recognizable, and even then there's so many subtle things about his face that make him bill murray.

I should really watch Groundhog Day - it's something that's been floating at the edge of my mind.
Thanks for reminding me.

(Oh yes, I love crossovers, I do crossovers! Now I'd like to see the other half of this one.)

Indeed, but the whole thing is chock-full of crazy plot twists and revelations. I loved it, and I really like how you drew Homura in this piece.

for me it was more like, "why arent these girls so willing to give their eternal soul away without asking any questions?", and then kyubey finally spits it out and you're like, yeah, you asked for it lol.

i almost drew a homura/bill murray action shot but then i realized how repulsed i would be at bill murray as a magical girl, plus i dont think kyubey would want to make a contract with him as he wouldnt release enough energy to his liking. or maybe he would? he just seems too laid back
