Mitakihara Homecoming 2070: Madoka 60



Mitakihara Homecoming 2070: Madoka 60

September 29, 2070

Mitakihara University renews, for the 60th time, one of its oldest traditions, dating back to the year 2011: it's Homecoming Week. This year's theme is "Madoka 60." Aoi Kiriya is a senior liberal studies major and is the wife of Mitakihara Magi strong safety Shiroyuki Kaname.




"Being a part of the Mitakihara Family is an honor that you can never take for granted," said Kiriya. "Shiro told me that to serve your school well by promoting this university's traditions is an achievement that cannot be described in words. There have been so many people before me, millions of people, who have understood the message that Madoka brings to the world. I get the chills stepping on campus, seeing all the different monuments and buildings that have been made in this town.

"This week, the university celebrates its 60th birthday, and we plan to celebrate it by making it a week no one will forget. So we invite everyone to come down to the island and watch the Best College Football Team in All of College Football shine at the Sakura Bowl once again. You will not regret it."

A number of other events will also take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Millbrook Cherokees on October 4, 2070 at 12:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised globally in English, French and Japanese by Radio Madoka in HDTV and on mobile via the Madoka Online app.

    1. I don't know what's going to happen; I still have to do some housekeeping before going straight to the game itself.
