  • Amazing, everyone should give it a shot
    I started watching this series as something to pass time with, I never expected to get into it. After the first episode I was completely addicted. This show is amazing. It has so much depth and so many elements. I'm usually not a fan of magical girl series but this one was done beautifully. The animation was amazing, the way they did the witches and the labyrinths was spectacular. The show has its ...

  • Super enjoyable for many reasons
    i absolutely loved this series.This series is different and dark take on what it means to be a magical girl. As someone who watched it having no idea what it was about beyond that it was a magical girl show it surprised me how dark it got. i would recommend this not only to these who enjoy magical girl anime but anime in general

  • A Wild Plot Twist Apeared!
    This show is absolutely amazing. It throws things at you you would've never expected. At first I got rather impatient with the show, because it felt like they were making me wait for an obvious conclusion. If you hang in there though and watch the whole thing, you won't be disappointed. The art is gorgeous and I love the originality of it. The witch labyrinths were like some sort of indie horror ...

  • Magical Girl Revision
    This is an anime that takes the "Magical Girl" genre and flips it on it's head. It is exciting, surprising, and terrifying at every turn and takes the awe and wonder of anime from childhood and twists it into a dark and modern tale of action and re-action.

    madoka is now my hero
    how to describe this show? it was everything you love about magical girls but it has the potential to make you cry a river if you aren't warned so here's your warning. i mean, you'll love all these girls. i'm glad that i watched this show cuz at first i thought it was gonna be on the cheesy side. it'll make you wish you had a friend like homura.

    Kyoko best grill :^)
    I went into this show thinking that it would be a lighthearted anime, nothing too serious, and one I could relax and watch without using the ol' noggin too much.
    Boy, was I wrong.
    Madoka Magica is a show that amazed me. It had a plot so deep and complex, it had me hooked by the secind episode. It's a wonder it was fit into twelve episodes. Although it is a darker plot, I loved it. The show's ...

    Incredible anime! a masterpiece!
    This anime is outstanding!! I don't want to spoil anything so.... just watch it! The plot is incredibly clever; the soundtrack is truly beautiful; the animation is original and everything is just perfectly balanced. Believe me you won't regret it. This is the kind of show that leaves you speechless and makes you think again. Unlike the forbidden 4 (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail), 12 ...

  • One of the best shows of all time
    This anime invokes emotion like few others can. It is designed from the beginning with the end in mind. This allows it to be a completely self-contained story and wont leave you unsatisfied after watching.

    There are 3 movies, two of which are recaps and one which is an original story.

    The story itself is masterfully crafted and probably good enough without any animation. Do yourself a favor ...

  • Best Anime I have seen in while
    This would have been a mistake to judge by its cover. What I got from it was the value of making sacrifices for others that you love. Many people in modern society do not see this to be valuable. Unfortunately, the outcome of the sacrifice does not always come out best for our own lives. This is why it is a sacrifice.

  • EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of the best anime I've watched. Though it appears to be your typical, magical-girl anime, as you continue to watch it, you'll soon realise that it isn't. I'll admit, I didn't want to watch it at first, but after seeing so many positive reviews about Madoka Magica, I finally decided to check it out. I ended up marathoning all twelve episodes, and when ...
