    Worth every second and 50 billion more we don't have
    I'm not a big anime person. I've seen the classics like Cowboy Bebop, Full Metal Alchemist, and Ghost In the Shell, so you can see why I hesitated when this anime was recommended to me. I looked it up, saw all the frills and bright colors, and immediately shot it down.

    I was stupid... So stupid.

    You cannot judge this anime by its cover. That would be a high crime to humanity, equivalent to ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.
