    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 ...

    If you have the time feel free to give it a try, its only 12 episodes long.
    It wasn't really until episode 7 where things start picking up and for a 12 episode series that doesn't cut it for me. The story line wasn't terrible, there are definitely many heart felt emotional moments. But thought most of the series the main protagonist is incredibly inept and overtly weak, which was frustrating for me and only until episode 10 do they explain deeper background of the events ...

  • Amazing, My Favorite Anime
    By far my favorite anime. Most animes have endings that either don't feel finished, are too cliché, or were so obvious from the beginning. I loved the ending to this anime it was sad, but so beautiful. This anime is like an intricately woven cloth, it has twists and turns and if you don't pay your undivided attention to it, it can get a bit confusing; however, the style of anime is gorgeous and ...

  • You have to stay with it till Episode 3
    I was REALLY skeptical when I was first told to watch this show. It's about middle school girls talking about friendship and magic and sticking together and yada yada yada. So I will tell you what I was told, you have to stick with it till the end of episode 3, because after that you wont be able to stop watching.

    Fair warning it gets dark, like really dark. Don't watch it if you think this ...

  • You WILL believe magic is real.
    This is to Magical girls what Neon Genesis Evangelion is to Monsters and Robots. Warning you will not find unicorns and rainbows instead you will find these girls are gambling with their lives in a game of Magical Russian roulette. No matter what, do not write it off as a girly show, do not put it off and do not drop it. Force yourself to watch past the first 2 episodes, enter down down the rabbit ...

    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 ...
