    A unique piece of animation
    I have never watched a magical girl type of anime, but I decided to give this one a chance because I heard from other reviewers that it took a different take on the typical genre that it represents.

    Oh boy! I loved this one. Do not let the cutesy look fool you. This is a dark tale that will keep you hooked throughout the story. Personally i did not get the feeling that our characters was the ...

    One of the best animes out there
    Deceivingly cute and simple, this anime will masterfully screw with your expectations as it brings you along on an emotional and unexpected roller-coaster of a ride to discover what it truly means to be a magical girl...

    The visuals are stunning, the soundtrack is amazing and the plot is meaningful and fresh. What more can I say? Watch this anime!

    A Different Take on Magical Girls
    Being a long time fan of the magical girl genre, I had to give this title a go. As a whole, this anime is quite good. The art style is nice and has a solid story. It gets dark quickly and makes one rethink their view on magical girl stories. Before watching this, I had never given thought to what a girl might have to give up to gain her powers. Nor had I ever really thought what would happen ...

    What lies beneath the surface?
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of the best anime's created in recent years, known for its very dramatical plot twists and ability to deceive the viewer by luring one into something that is definitely not what it takes out to be.

    On the outside Madoka Magica looks like a generic mahou shoujo anime, but that is far from true. Beneath the surface of this hollow appearance lies an anime filled ...

    Magical girls for the Seinen demographic
    This show had such a profound effect on me it is ridiculous. I wasn't expecting that at all. I started this show with only the knowledge that it was an original deconstruction of the Magical Girls anime genre with a dark twist. Man, they weren't kidding. This is unlike anything I have ever seen. Under normal circumstances I would be ashamed to admit that I broke down in tears several times over ...

    HNNGGGG A MUST WATCH
    *Contains few minor spoilers*

    Okay this anime is beyond words, I just can't believe how everything was done so perfectly, you even get an awesome plot-twist at the end that you were praying for to happen.

    This anime easily gets 10/10 for character depth, all characters are done very well and always live up to their personality, my only problem was that Mami-san kinda died too early. Other ...

    Not quite the ordinary "magic-school-girl" series
    I'd like to recommend this series to everyone who enjoys a good moral story, great atmosphere and those who cherish cute girls.


    I started off this series kind of thinking it was going to be all fuzzy magic and school drama. Instead what I got was something totally not anticipated. The first thing that struck me was the unusual still great drawing which I enjoyed while introducing the ...

    One of my Favorite animes.
    I watched this show the first time because of a couple rave reviews and they were right, this show is something else. Don't listen to those that just say "OMG ITS SO TWISTED", that is selling it short as its much more than that. Watch it

    Deception at its finest
    This show looks like another magical girl anime, doesn't it? It's so colorful, and cutesy, and... well... full of magical girls. Go into this anime thinking that. What you will find may delightfully (or horrifically) shock you. Watch this show, but just remember that nothing is ever as it seems.

    I recommend this show to everyone, girls and guys alike. Seriously, watch it.
