A Word From The Author

As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. 

The Mitakihara Magi Dynasty essentially finished with the 2071 season reaching its conclusion. That 94-40 victory over Navy in the 2072 BCS Championship Game was the last game Coach Kaname ever coached because I could not play the 2072 season on NCAA Football 14. This game only allows players to play from the 2013 season all the way to 2072. After two years, three months and 27 days of simming and storytelling, the Mitakihara Magi Dynasty concludes its run the the offseason and the handoff of the reins of head coach to the son of the Kaname siblings. 

The promo for the Magia Day 2072 game, if this was able to be simmed.

Personally, I was a bit disappointed I could not complete the 60th season. Apparently, the 60th season is not playable. I can only play 59 seasons on NCAA 14. So I'm starting to learn more about the limitations of this game and how long I am allowed to play dynasty mode. If this game comes back (which I am sure will happen), I will keep this in mind. 

For me, Puella Magi Madoka Magica was a show that left a massive impact on me. It was a heartfelt tale of friendship, but mostly about love and growing up and taking risks to save those you love, even though the drawbacks will be there. This was the case of the Rebellion Story, if you paid attention to what happened. As of this writing, it is not known whether or not Homura Akemi's actions against Madoka irreparably jeopardized her standing in the 2ch community. My guess is that it has, but you never know with these voters in Japan. Stay tuned on my sister blog, the Bedlam on Baltic Avenue, for extensive coverage of the 2014 2ch Anime Saimoe Tournament this summer.

Madoka Magica was the inspiration behind this Mitakihara Magi Dynasty, and to finally conclude it on a winning note and to study how teams at their maximum levels can dominate opponents and test the scoreboard at will is a project that I will put as a feather in my cap. This was so much fun to cover, and I'm a bit sad to know that it's a done deal. What I plan to do with this blog is to use it as an archive on games played in this dynasty, and I also plan to go back to Avid Dynasty Manager to reconcile some statistics, since I originally used Avid Manager to back up my stats.

Anyway, I want to thank you all for following this dynasty, but keep checking in to for reflections from former players on events that have happened, as well as maybe some other stats that pop up if I am able to use Avid Manager successfully again. Go Magi! You Are Not Alone!
