Madoka/Homura, also known as MadoHomu, is the femslash pairing of Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi in Puella Magi Madoka Magica series.


The show starts with Madoka having a dream in which she sees Homura fighting in an apparently unwinnable battle, only to find out the next day that the girl from her dreams is her new classmate. As Homura advises Madoka not to become a magical girl multiple times throughout the series, it is later revealed that Homura has been going back in time multiple times with the ultimate goal of protecting Madoka, after originally meeting her as a magical girl who died trying to protect her and everyone else.


This leads us to explore what is probably the main problem of Homura and Madoka. Basically they both have a very low self-esteem and in order to prove their worth they are both determined to be useful and to succeed in their mission as magical girls. However, Madoka’s mission as a magical girl is in opposition with Homura’s one and this leads the two girls to never be completely satisfied at the same time. If you notice, both in the series and in the movie, when Madoka is active and confident Homura is unsure and lost and vice versa. Homura especially needs Madoka to be safe in order to prove her self worth and this is a problem because it makes so that it is impossible for Madoka to claim any form of agency since it will lead to Homura being left unsatisfied.[1]
