  • Not your typical magical girl anime!
    This is not your typical magical girl anime. Do not be turned off by the adorable-ness of it. It's so much more than that. It's adorable at times yet super dark at times! A must see.
    My boyfriend was turned off by watching this at first because he thought it was your typical girly magical girl anime which he isn't too much of a fan of but he finally decided to sit down and watch it and loved ...

  • Bait and Switch Anime
    So, I came for the magical girls and left with an aching heart. It's like a show that makes every effort to convince that it's just a brainless magical girl show, but then as soon as you watch it it starts to slowly destroy that illusion.

    Highly recommended! Even if you don't like cute high school girls in frilly outfits.

  • A touching, tragic masterpiece
    I'm glad I watched it, make no mistake. It was one of the best and richest experiences I've had in my life, not just across anime, and part of me is sad it's taken me this long to watch it. But the other part knew what was coming, and is saying, "I told you so,".

    If you're reading this chances are you've seen it, and you don't need me here. But if you haven't...

  • BEST MAGIC SERIES EVER!!
    Madoka Magica isn't just an average everyday magic series. This series is a gripping tale of darkness and despair that these young girls have to deal with at the price of becoming a magical girl. The looming darkness of these girls fate shows us that not only does power come at a price, but no matter what you do you can't run from an inevitable fate of becoming what you sought to destroy, that ...

    Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica looks like it would be a silly, girly anime about a bunch of teenage girls running around, using magic, and giggling. That's not what its about. It starts off a little slow (only is the first two episodes, really), but it gets better, trust me.

    Madoka Magica is about two girls who get asked the question "What is a wish you would trade your life for?" by a magical ...

    HOW DARE THIS BE SO GOOD
    Okay so I don't really keep up with super long animes because I don't have the time, so I watch shorter ones like this series. I follow a few accounts on tumblr that always reblog artwork from this series, and I never knew much about it.

    Finally I decided to give it a try and good god. I barely have words.

    I don't want to make a super long review, I just want to say that this series left me ...

  • Urobutcher lives on the tears of others
    When Urobutcher first brought the world Saya no Uta, tears were shed and his name was immortalized.

    Years later, Urobutcher would then seek forgiveness from the world. "We forgive you", the world would reply in unison. Thus, the world came to know peace once more.

    Then Puella Magi Madoka Magica happened. As the world recoils in betrayal, Urobutcher laughs, his soul fueled by the tears of all.

  • Simultaneously Pastel Pink and Dark
    This is the series that got me to use Crunchyroll for the first time.
    I had found WeissSchwarz cards of Madoka Magica and bought a few packs because of how adorable the art and characters were. When I was flipping through them, I showed the Kyubei card to one of my friends : "Look at the cute kitty!" and instead of an agreeing smile, his face twisted in horror. "That thing is NOT cute."
    "What, ...

  • These aren't your typical Magical Girls
    My first impression of this anime was that it was just another Magical Girl's adventure through making friends and beating up bad guys. I could not have been more wrong. By the 3rd episode I couldn't believe what I was watching and it just kept getting better from there.

    This is probably my favorite anime of all time and I can not recommend it enough.
