Going to put this out there since I looked at the previous posts and didn't see this item I'm going to comment about. Anyone find it curious that the Raven mentioned to the director and deputy director about Akari saying "At least she won't die in vain..." Is this a prelude to what may happen because of the fate of her mother or is it the fate of all those who inherit the Sun card?

The raven said at least the mother wont have had died in vain now that Akari is taking over as the successor of the sun card.

I thought it was the cat that had that line, and it was directed at the current situation from the way it was said.


I took it as,
100% speculation on my part though.

It does say in the summary that all of the users are carrying some form of guilt with them...

Guess I need to rewatch it when I get some more sleep.

This girl is my favorite from the series for now:


I'm still getting some Madoka vibes which is good but not sure exactly which direction this show will be heading into as of this moment.

It's nice so far, but I agree with the heavy Madoka vibes. I hope it has something to say and it's not just being "like Madoka" to get viewers. I think the sun card probably burns out it's user faster than the others seeing how it seems to be the most powerful offensive card shown. The three sisters with The Fool seem pretty cool and I can't wait to see what kind of trouble they cause. One final note, screw that raven, don't care what his problem is, don't care if he saves the world on a daily basis, screw him. The president too, she irritates me.

That is sort of what I'm thinking too. Or at least...

It's kinda funny that the other magical girl show (Ilya) was the one being compared to Madoka in the comments, but this one is SOOO much darker.

Such a dope series still...and now we can infer that the crow and cat have some plan pertaining to Akari.

Episode 3:

Much better episode building off from the (imo) slow episode 2.

For a moment I thought Akari would be able to save the person corrupted by the Daemonia but I guess not (yet?).

Looks like there will be conflict in the group between what they think they should do with those who are possessed (between Seira and Akari).

Episode 3

Ouch, I think someone got owned this episode...

Uh, I don't have much to add tbh. This series feels like it's on the right track but I'm not getting too much enjoyment out of it. Guess I'll keep watching for the magical fun.

It's quite the departure from traditional Magical Girl stories. Typically you would see some kind of purification attack and everything goes back to normal. Happy end for everyone.

This series is making it very clear there is no happy end.

So I figured out that the blue haired girl (Seira Hoshikawa) is voiced by Eri Kitamura.

WHICH is also the voice actress of Sayaki Miki from Madoka.

Is it me or does the voice actress love being the blue haired character? Just by looking at her past VA characters.

Madoka is not an anime you can piece out. It has to be evaluated as a whole. That is because the story line is fractured by it's content and nature. I realize that that is a turn off for many people. However, if you can watch the whole thing and piece the entire plot line together, it is a great series. I find that to be it's biggest down fall. You have to watch at least halfway through the series before the larger plot and even the minor elements really become clear. On the other hand though, that makes the last half of the series a hammer blow.

I don't think it is over rated but, it isn't for everyone by any means. As far as organization, it isn't unorganized but dissonant by design. I will give you that it is a little dry for most of the series, hpulley.

When you consider it though, this series seems to be Madoka light. The plot line seems to be direct and it doesn't seem to be as dark. No doubt that it is in the same sub class but, I do not believe that this one will go as far. I could be wrong but, it doesn't seem to be setting that much up at this point. As of episode three I am also seeing comparisons with Vividred (the damn crows), Nanoha (sorta generally), the new Fate series (Cards again?) and, Madoka (discussed to death by now). The sum total is that I don't see this one being the mind fuck that Madoka was.
