  • I mean, honestly, just wow...
    I had heard this was good, that it was a great deconstruction of the magical girls genre, and was just all around a good show. I believed them, I just didn't quite get what everyone was losing their head over. Now I do.


    From the sheer quality of the animation, to the fantastic use of music and sound, to the great writing and story, this anime has definitely ...

  • Absolutely Amazing Anime
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of the absolute best anime I have seen in many years. The first few episodes start out a slowly, but the series gets better the further it goes. I enjoy dark magical girl series, and this one delivers.

    I don't want to spoil anything for people, but it really is that good. I put it off and came back to it a few times before it had me really hooked, but I'm ...

    Just a Blunt Review: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
    To be quite blunt, as I usually am, I don't believe that Puella Magi Madoka Magica is as good as people say. More or less, it appears to be a pseudo-intelligent piece. The majority of people claim that Madoka is a deconstruction of the magical girl genre and is therefore a good piece of writing. I believe that it takes more than being a deconstruction to be good. And I don't believe that it is a ...

    Shockingly Amazing!!
    At first site this anime looks like a cute fluffy kind involving young girls who can use magic to change into fighting forms. It really shocks you and gets very dark. The art work is extrodinary! I love this anime and I've watched it 3 times now!!!!!

    A True Work of Art, Highly Recommended
    After hearing dozens of recommendations, I finally sat down and watched this anime. Wow, I sure am glad I did! Madoka Magica is the rare anime that seems to get everything right. The story is engrossing, all the characters are immediately likeable and recognizable, the battle scenes are an absolute spectacle to behold, the music is among the best I've ever heard in an anime, and it doesn't ...

  • This is a beautiful anime that, if you like heart-twisting stories, I'd recommend.
    Madoka Magica.. this anime is amazing. Please don't be fooled by the sparkly dresses and shining eyes, as this anime takes a dark turn as soon as you turn your back. It's takes what usually is rainbows and sunshine, and turns it into a saddening, down to earth amazing story that pulled me in immediately. Give Madoka Magica a chance, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    A work of art, and possibly the best anime ever made...
    I put off watching this show for years because I thought it was a typical magical girl anime. It's not. It's dark, deep, and complex. In many ways, Madoka can be seen as a deconstruction of the genre. I literally cannot think of a single thing I disliked about the show.

  • Its enough to make a grown man cry.
    Do not let the cheery cover and title sequence fool you this show is insanely depressing. It starts out slow and small by making you think its going to be kinda fun with some dark action segments, until its four episodes in and has seem to forgotten any type of lighthearted humor whatsoever. This show will mess you up if you don't expect it.

  • A harrowing experience
    What's like to live in a godless world? What's like to give your best and still fail? What's like to give your best and have as much tries as you like at it and still face an unconquerable challenge that has to be bested? Does giving your all for the right reasons make any difference in this kind of world or does it make matters worse? These are part of the quandaries that face the heroines of ...

  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica - A Must-Watch
    I really don't know much about writing reviews or anything, so i won't pretend I do. The best way I can put this is that this anime had me crying for the first time in two years. Two years ago, my dad died, blah blah blah, sad. So it felt like I wasn't able to cry. No matter how sad or happy or whatever I was, tears never fell. But this anime got me to cry not only out of sadness, but out of ...
