    You have to watch the whole seires.
    First off, I am new to CR, and this would be my first review ever. It's just that this anime is very important to me, and seeing everyone missing it because of the first impression of the show just doesn't seem fair, so I decided I'd share my thoughts.

    Now, this anime is not your average magical girl show. It does not try to picture perfect girls doing cute things or the likes, but instead aims ...

    Being a magical girl has it's price
    When you first see the poster and description of this show, your first thought is "Please no more cutesyness and little girls giggling and doing silly little girl things!". After I had read a review of the Anime detailing what happened in Episode 3, I figured I would check it out. It started off interesting, but once I got to episode 3 I was hooked and the rest of the episodes kept getting ...

    First impression is a lie
    Before starting this I would like to make it clear that this would be my first review here on CR so I'm not sure how well this turns out. I will try my best to keep this spoiler free, short and bias as possible.

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica has been out for roughly over a year now in Japan and was recently licensed by Aniplex USA. It is a short 12 episode Magical Girl series that tells the story ...

  • FOXYKIN on MADOKA MAGICA
    A very intelligent shoujo anime starring a colourful bunch of very likable and surprisingly relatable characters. The plot takes an incredibly interesting twist early in the anime making it hard to predict at times.
    Action-packed, even if the pace appears to move slowly at times. The series is mostly focused on emotional dialogue building wonderful character development, and throwing in the right ...

  • An Anime With Meaning
    This anime series, though short, is definitely the best anime I have ever seen. Now, I have not seen that many good anime, I'm usually the type to watch the likes of Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Digimon Xros Wars, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc. However, the plot, music, and character development of this series is extremely well done, and you can tell that the story writers, designers, animators, and special effects ...

    Greatest Anime Series of All Time (in my opinion)
    There isn't an anime out there that can top Madoka Magica for me. The animation is gorgeous, all five of the main characters are more well-developed than most anime protagonists in their own shows, the story is as thought-provoking as Neon Genesis Evangelion without becoming incomprehensible near the end, and it has one of the best single episodes out of any serialized television program out there ...

  • Probably my favorite anime
    This anime is amazing, upon first look it definitely looks like something aimed towards young girls in elementary/middle school, just look at the picture lol. But its something I would recommend to anybody, I don't even really know what to say about it, just 5/5

  • Usuniki's Review: "Don't think it twice just watch it! You won't regret it!"
    My personal Rating: 10/10

    I always had this anime on the list to see but I was to lazy and thinking it was going to be very girly and all, but I was wrong. Is not, I actually enjoyed and love the episodes and the end was amazing! I truly recommend to watch this anime! You won't have any regrets!

  • Don't judge this by the thumbnail.
    At first I put off by the whole magical girl thing, don't get me wrong I love Sailormoon but that's it. But wow.. this series surprised me. I recommend it to everyone. Perfect balance of elements in this. The animation is great, the music is beautiful. I can't find a flaw in this at all. 10/10.

  • What did I just watch!?
    Thought this was gonna be a cutesy magical girl anime, boy was I wrong. I have never been thrown for such a loop as I was here. I love how Gen Urobuchi showed us the darker side of magical girls. Not gonna write anymore as not wanting to spoil anything, just go watch it
