  • Not gonna lie im a guy
    I kept seeing this anime everywhere and decided what all the commotion was about and now i know. Dude honestly this tore my heart. It was emotional to point where i almost shed tears. Keep in mind i was at a McDonald using their WiFi so i had to try really hard to keep emotions. One of the anime's I've ever seen.

  • My All-Time Favorite Anime Series
    This is a dark show. This is a surprising show. This is a show that I can't talk about much without revealing massive spoilers. Episode 10 in itself is one of my all-time favorite anime episodes ever. I've re-watched this show far more than any other.

    The background art is awesome. The music is awesome. Homura is awesome. The characters and character development are very well done. There is no ...

  • Why did I wait so long to watch this???
    My boyfriend never pressured me into watching the show;but I knew he's been a fan of this series since I met him in 2011. I JUST got around to watching it! I know...late to the party haha! I honestly should have watched it sooner; 'cause it was just amazing!

    Without spoiling too much; when I was watching the first episode I was thinking to myself "Wow, this is really boring and this main ...

  • Go in blind to this show, not knowing what's coming is what makes it good.
    tl;dr: No spoilers, go in blind, have fun!

    This show's a rollercoaster of emotion, I can't really explain how without ruining the plot... Which is a real pity. All I can say is make sure you have the time to watch every single episode without a break, because chances are you'll not want to stop until it's over... And after that you've got the sequel movie "PMMM: Rebellion" to watch. (There are ...

  • I Don't Even Know Where to Start
    This show is simply amazing. It follows the story of a few high school girls in a fictional city and their journey as magical girls. At first glance, and throughout the first few episodes, the show comes off as another average magical girl story, and the pacing in the beginning is quite slow.

    However, around episode 5 or 6, the show suddenly picks up drastically and takes you on a roller ...

  • A well known genre morphed into a beautiful tragedy
    We've all seen or heard of the magical girls genre. They follow a constant pattern: The main character becomes a special fighter and aims to defeat evil with her friends and gets a happy ending. However, Madoka Magica puts a twist on this by placing the evil within the protagonists themselves. It becomes something bigger and tragic as the characters develop. This show is incredibly deep and so ...

  • Something that touched my heart greatly
    I'm not even sure where to begin. There is so many things I could say about this beautiful series but I'm pretty sure I could keep that all to myself.

    I watched this anime for the first time a little more than 2 years ago thanks to the influence of a close friend of mine and man was I in for a spin.The cute style and vibrant colors drew me in because, like many others, I'm ...

  • Fantastic anime. I loved it to bits.
    I loved this show. It turned out to be a lot about life in itself, which I guess many animes have in common. What separates this anime from many other ones is its character development, as well as how the creator lures the common anime lover into almost believing it is a cute and lovely anime about cute and lovely things. On one hand I wish there were more episodes, but on the other hand, the ...

  • Straightforward; this anime is a fucking masterpiece
    Explicit Language

    Gonna be completely honest. I have watched tons of anime, just like everyone else. I've watched mostly magical girl mainly focusing on sailor moon. If you're looking for a vibe like that, this anime isn't for you. It wasn't so much the graphic content, but the whole world concept of this anime really fucked me up in all honesty. It probably won't and will not be as ...

  • Don't Let It Fool You
    Deception.

    That's what's this anime is. It is the mark of pure genius. If you want to watch this for cute giggles, slice of life, romance, click away now. This anime is by far the most deceptively amazing. The marketers made Madoka Magica look like an adorable teen anime, but trust me, you will be so pleasantly surprised.

    From the banner, to the intro to the outro.. This anime seems so ...
