Wow that was depressing to watch. To kill a innocent kitten for zero reason and no remorse that's what serial killers do. The anime got the point across of the MC horrible life and ready to kill herself every day. Don't see to many magic girl shows this bleak so from that point its fresh look

Just reading the comments here, I can safely cross this one off my list. What's the deal with shows trying to make Madoka Magica grimmer and darker?

Alright guys this one of those anime's we are going to have to leave in the hands of Anime Reviewers because this one is so off the wall. As reference to a anime in the past that damn near Triggered the entire website, I'll leave this here. Everyone just chill.

That was great! It was just so off the wall and dark and grim, just up my alley. It was just so messed up that it's worth watching. I even watched it twice.

I will be honest, this drove me into a fucking rage.

Kitten, bullies, then...big brother on little sister abuse. You may think I am playing a role when I express my interest of being an elder brother figure, but I am legitimately infuriated and fuming. There are some girls I do consider my little sisters, and I will fucking murder anyone who hurts them. Especially siblings who should care for them!

I had to hug like 10 of my little sisters to convince myself there are decent Onii-chans in this world, and that I am one of them. Gosh, I am fucking angry.

Hmmm, this is based on a manga by the same guy who wrote Mahou Shoujo of the End. I hear this story is a little less messed up, but I'm still scrubbing some of the grit out of my brain from reading the first one and that was weeks ago. I will probably check it out, but I hope the author has worked out some of the issues with his writing. He has a tendency to let the plot become so convoluted that he himself gets lost in it. I will give the guy credit, though, for being highly creative and uniquely twisted.

If you people thought episode 1 was bad, wait until recent chapters in the manga. Oh boy, what dark turns.

Contrived indeed. Everyone knows that in the real world when people do stuff like this the "guns" aren't powered by magic.

ditto...I saw some gifs which were pretty disgusting. Just seems like the show is showing violence for violence sake...just like King's Game, I am crossing this off the list.

I wouldn't say it is devoid of quality like King's Game. The series seems to do a fairly stable job of keeping its main cast alive and somewhat characterized. For all the darkness of the original material, I am quite surprised at how little we see of the main cast dying, antagonistic or heroic.

However, the Madoka comparisons are apt. The overarching themes of friendship, among others, are apparent in this show, with the main conflict...

This sure was interesting.. in a revolting and disgusting way. It definitely does feel edgy for the sake of being edgy and dark for the sake of being dark. Shows like this tend to have more bite when there's more skin in the game but it doesn't really feel like that here. The MC is already at the point where she wants to die at the start of the show so while what happens to her even in just the first episode is terrible it's not really contrasted against anything. She's never really happy (even when playing with the cat), she doesn't have even a single friend, her family is shit, etc. All that said, however, there is something compelling here, and it does feel like there's an actual direction and purpose.

I really don't know if I'll be seeing it through to the end (or if I'll even be able to stomach it, to be honest), but I am interested in seeing at least a little more of where this is going.

This is the worst thing I've seen this season.

I don't appreciate Mahou Shoujo Site's hedonistic misanthropy and is the equivalent to nazism, evil, hatred, or any anti humanitarianism in the world.

I also don't appreciate it's answer to bullying. "Hey kids, what do you do to your offenders when you're being victimized? You kill them." How disgusting
