  • This is a MINDF***!!!!
    HOLY CRAP!!! this show is not as it seems trust me. watch through episode 3 and you'll see what i mean, this is not a show for the average fan of sailor moon or your equivalent of magical girl monster of the week title. the way this show ends is awesome with how the main character Madoka uses her situation to the best of her abilities. Also do not trust the little cat (or should i say Rat) ...

  • Kawaii / Suna no yona
    As far as "Magical Girl" titles go it has a dark edge to the series, despite its upbeat opening. As each episode unfolds it reveals a new revelation that adds a new layer of suspense. It leaves its audience wanting more and wraps it up nicely in the end (no spoils though). The animation style is easy of the eyes, even during fight scenes. For twelve episodes long it is a sound investment of ...

    One of my favorites, watch it now!
    Amazing show. DON'T READ COMMENTS BEFORE WATCHING. Go into it not knowing anything and this show is just amazing. Well heck, even knowing the whole plot now, I'd still watch it again cause its that good.

    One thing I really love is the animation style and how it switches into something completely new when in the magical world. Really well done.

    Sad, haunting, tragically beautiful
    When I first started watching this anime, I totally thought it was going to be this cute, little girl anime about young teenagers becoming magical girls and defeating cutesy witches in labyrinths full of butterflies. My friends warned me...and they were right.

    The first few episodes are very misleading. They're very cutesy, the animation is very cutesy, the dialogue is...you catch my drift. ...

  • Fascinating, dark, and sad
    On the surface, it looks like a cutesy girlie anime. It really isn't.

    It's a complicated emotional story with a lot of sadness and heart break. If you like things that are interesting, this is for you. If you want to have a happy ending at the end of every episode, go watch something else.

  • A Wonderful Deconstruction
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of Urobuchi's finest works, successfully deconstructing the magical girl genre. It depicts the stress of being a magical girl, and its emotionally conflicting ending (especially that of the third movie Rebellion) will move the viewer as one realizes that the life of a magical girl is not always magical.

  • A Refreshing Anime from the Magical Girl Genre
    This anime is an odd one,to be sure.With it's strange mix of artstyles and characters,it'd be impossible to say otherwise.However,the creativity shines through in every episode,quite literally exploding in your face.Pretty much everything in this anime is unique and original,and will surely leave you wanting more.The bright colors and seemingly cheerful characters hide a grim story full of ...

  • Amazing anime!!!!!!!
    This is an AMAZING anime. Just trust me on the one. I finished the entire series in a week it is so good! Btw the reason it took so long is because I have other important hobbies. But trust me, if you watch this anime you will want to watch it again. I did! I will warn you, it does give you a ton of feels, and it has lesbians. Here is a summary of it: "Lesbians fighting witches". Boom there you ...

  • Wow, I never expected that!
    I was not expecting this series to be as sad as it was. The first two episodes are the biggest tease in the world as they don't even come close to representing the really dark and sad turn this show takes at episode 3. By the time the final episodes were coming up and the true story was unfolding, I felt horrible.

    This is a sad show and I really felt for the characters. The twist the story ...
