Madoka’s Sacrifice,

Madoka and Kyoko tried to repeal Sayaka’s transformation, but the plan fails. Kyoko sacrificed her to allow Madoka to escape. At that time,  Homura remained the only magical girl in the city.

Knowing the lousy situation, Walpurgisnacht approached. Homura attempted to stop it but lost. Now, the only thing she can go for is to rewind time to repeat the month, but Madoka hindered her.  Now, Madoka decides to become a magical girl. She makes the contract in exchange with a wish. She wished to stop the creation of all witches in the past, present, and future.

The range of this choice rewrites history and the laws of the universe. But Madoka’s existence as a human dismisses from time. She transforms into a cosmic phenomenon called “The Law of Cycles.” The cycle appears to all magical girls at the moment before turning into witches. Further, it rescues them by taking them to a heavenly paradise.
