The Importance of Nuzzling - Illustrated by Madoka/Homura


Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi nuzzle it out. From the trailer to "Puella Magi Madoka Magica Part II: The Eternal Story".

At least this is 1000 times cuter than Kyubey nuzzling it up with either one of them.

Looks like MadokaxHomura ship train just keeps chugging along in full speed. This extremely memorable piece of art from the trailer for the 2nd Puella Magi Madoka Magica movie captures Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi nuzzling each other. You know that fans got a kick out of it when so much fanart of the Madoka/Homura scene starts popping up all over the Net. Kinda makes you think about how nuzzling is important for one’s mindset.

Nuzzling/cuddling helps reduce stress by increasing the oxytocin hormone (which is known as the “cuddle chemical”). That hormone helps to relieve stress and makes you feel good. You want to know why we get excited and giddy after physical contact with someone we like? That’s oxytocin working its magic on you.

The fan reaction to the Madoka/Homura nuzzle is just a firm reminder of how powerful the sense of “touch” is for everyone. As much as we can get inspired by words, they don’t always go through. A person of important value to you who physically shows his/her affection has the ability to unlock many emotions inside you. An intense snuggle from someone says more than a speech would. Actions speak louder than words, right? 

The scary part is that there are people out there that never had physical affection and it has led to cuddle therapy practices. You might think that it sounds crazy, but there are those who just want to cuddle. The world we’re living in is making us more and more isolated these days.

Man, that Madoka sure is providing more intriguing critique, isn’t she?
