"Never judge a book by its cover," they say. Well, I do. A lot. And judging Puella Magi Madoka Magica by its cover, it's another magical girl series like any other... right?
Not quite. You see, in this series, a magical girl is not tasked with vanquishing evil with sparkles and joy, but fighting sinister witches. By eschewing the traditionally light, shoujo feel for a surprisingly grim story dealing with death, loss of humanity, and the value of life, the series has gained a lot of popularity and its Western release has been highly anticipated.
Aniplex has put up listings for Puella Magi Madoka Magica's DVD and Blu-Ray combo pack preorder on RightStuf, so now you can have the chance to check out this popular and acclaimed series.
I've made a little extra space on my shelf, but what about you? Puella Magi Madoka Magica hits DVD and Blu-Ray on Valentine's Day 2012.
