Madoka beats Homura. Homu couldn't beat a god, I expected that.

Though I haven't watched all of the shows mentioned in this list, I agree with the rankings, especially for what I have seen. It's quite interesting that all five of the girls from Madoka Magica made it onto the list, which tells you the impression that it has left on the Japanese anime fans, and anime fans in general. I've watched it and it's one of my favorite magical girl shows. For the rest of them, I'm honestly surprised that Makoto/Sailor Jupiter didn't make it onto the list, though I have been told that Ami is the more popular Scout outside of Usagi over in Japan and that Sailor Jupiter is more popular elsewhere.

You don't know any of the Sailor Moons, even though they're airing on Hulu, and you don't know third-place Cardcaptor Sakura even though it's on Crunchyroll??
That's not sad, that's disgusting.

(And while Lina Inverse does use magic, her reaction to being called a "magical girl" would be interesting.)

I think so...
Sailor Moon, Card Captor Sakura, Magic Knights Rayearth, hello?!!

Yeah, she'd probably accuse you of implying she was particularly flat-chested like those other magical girls.

Glad I'm not the only one. I only know the Madoka girls, Illya, Lina (not a magical girl though) and Onodera (she's a magical girl?). I never watched Sailor Moon growing up, and haven't watched the new series yet. Cardcaptor Sakura I may get to some time since it's on Crunchyroll.

I was a bit sad to see Lina Inverse far down the list but since she is from an older series I suppose it makes sense.
