Mitakihara Homecoming 2046: Solidarity

By Mei Wong
The Daily Magi
September 23, 2046


The Mitakihara Homecoming Committee released the schedule for Mitakihara Homecoming 2046: Solidarity. Freshman humanities major Maika Aomi is the wife of Mitakihara Magi middle linebacker Daiki Asuka III. Aomi is this year's homecoming committee chair and was excited at the opportunity to oversee one of Madoka's signature traditions.

"Originally, we wanted to call the theme '-1000 Sex Points' and make it a salute to poor sportsmanship in terms of sexual overdrive," Aomi said in an interview at Magia Quad. "Then we found out that Dr. Kaname, our Chancellor, made a historic visit to Poland last winter ahead of a number of events that would take place regarding that country. We decide to dedicate this year's homecoming to the Solidarity movement in Poland, the downfall of communism, and the promotion of peace and democracy across Europe.

"This is also in conjunction with an event regarding the canonization of Jerzy Popieluszko, who will be made a saint at the end of Homecoming Week. We have recruited religious leaders from Poland to work with us in making this Homecoming Week a meaningful, enriching Homecoming. Mitakihara University salutes Solidarity throughout the world and the promotion of peace and democracy, because this is accordance with the wishes of our chancellor, the founder of this school."

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Boise State Broncos on September 29, 2046 at 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by TSN, ESPN, NHK and BBC. Also, the game will be broadcast live, for the first time, on Poland's TVP Sport.
