  • A Must see Anime that is Worth Your Time
    This is an excellent show that every anime fan should watch, if only due to its popularity. The series has excellent music and visuals, and although most you will know what the main plot points and twists are--thanks for spoilers internet--the story is still very well written with sympathetic and complex characters. Recommended for all viewers.

  • One of the best anime (my opinion)
    This anime is not what you think which is amazing knowing it is not you're average magical girls anime. The characters are great and you can relate to them, they manage to show everyone backstory and make you actually feel it unlike other anime. The art style is also great because it is one of the rare art styles I've ever seen. Recommend this anime to anyone who loves that dark but lovely anime.

  • It's A Good Show, But Everyone Is Really Dumb
    I'm sure you've heard before that this is an amazing show. And honestly, it is pretty good; the whole thing is an intricately-plotted piece of tragic genius by an expert at tragedy. So, why am I not giving it five stars?

    One of my personal pet peeves is stupid characters.

    Almost every character on this show is stupid, and indeed a majority of them are very stupid. That is to say, there is an ...

  • Bittersweet perfection <3 (see note on watching Ep10)
    This anime is as beautiful as it is tragic. It nears perfection without any filler and constant excitement... watch the first five minutes of Ep1... Done, Sold. Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it only changes form. Keep that in mind while watching.

    Note : My only complaint is Ep10 was too fast. I almost thought it was a parody episode or something like that. By the time I realized what ...

  • Loved it, and rewatched!
    This was the first 'dark' magical girl anime I watched. It made me fall in love with the genre. I honestly have never been fond of the way faces were drawn in this anime, and I always felt like they looked 'wrong' with how they were shaded. However, the colors and the story made up for that and I definitely recommend it to anyone.

  • Quite Amazing to be Honest
    This show keeps you on edge the whole time, from the character stories, to the plot, and to the telling of the story. It is quite amazing, and really makes you think about the true meaning of any sacrifice you, or someone you know makes. You truly feel attached to these characters, and that makes it all the more insane as the story kicks in.

  • Essential Magical Girl Anime
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is required viewing in the magical girl genre. It redefined the type of show with an updated angle: the cost of being a magical girl, and the drama the created within their existence. We follow a group of girls who learn the price through their experience of becoming a magical girl, and the inherent responsibilities required by their existence. When whats at stake ...

  • Magical Girl Anime that hurts so good...
    ... that if you're anything like me you'll be sitting there and keep having to hit play because you can't stop the show. It's so good! I'm proud to have the series in manga form in my bookshelf. This is such a good series. I really recommend it for any magical girl genre lover. It makes you think hard about the staple rules and what it means to be a magical girl as a whole.

  • Not Your Average Magical Girl Anime
    This anime is a must watch!
    You may look at the art for this anime and think to yourself "Well this looks cute and girly." BUT YOU ARE SO WRONG! This is not that type of anime. Yes the art is very cute, but this anime isn't cute by any means. Now this is not bad, its an amazing anime, but you are definitely in for a surprise. To be honest I wonder if the art is kind of meant to mislead ...
