  • Doesn't live up to the legacy of past Magical Girls
    Growing up I loved magical girl anime's like Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, utena, etc. I met someone who shared a similar nostalgia and hyped this series up a lot for me.

    The animation style in the labyrinth's was interesting and unique, and the world crafted made enough sense.

    But the pacing of the show was really strange. Each episode starts right in the middle of the action in such a ...

  • You'll cheer, laugh and cry... Truly a must watch anime
    This series is a must watch for anyone who's into anime. The writing is beyond genius and the story will hold you in your seat until the very end of the last episode.
    It's an emotional rollercoaster to watch through this entire anime. There are moments where you will want to stand up and scream "Hell yeah!" and other where you just wanna sit down and think about life and what it means to be human ...

    Not available in the UK
    Seems it's not available in the UK, i get "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region.", reading all the other reviews I was tempted into watching as it seems to be a great anime, but unfortunately I can't. I don't understand these limitations/licensing issues from the supplier's part, you would've think they would want their product wherever possible.

    You need to watch this!
    This is my favourite anime and it is brilliant. Great characters, genius writing, and the animation is stunning. Madoka Kaname is the best!

    I really dig the whole premise of becoming a magical girl brings on suffering. It's a great twist on other magical girl anime out there whih the characters get powers with no real consequence.

  • Magical Girl Genre for adults
    I didn't expect much from this show after the first episode but I'm glad I stuck with it. I felt it really took off for me around episode three, and I almost binge watched it from that point on. I grew up watching and reading a lot of magical girl themed anime and manga, so this show really resonated with me as an adult. I loved it!

  • Just watch it, it doesn't look like much, but just watch it. You won't be dissapointed.
    I really wasn't sure if I wanted to watch this going in. I'd heard it was something else, even held alongside the like of Evangelion, but I wasn't convinced, even the art work for the promotional material made it seem like it was uninspired. Well after one episode, I thought this interesting, after two I was pretty sure it was worth my time. But after 3 episodes, I realised that this was something ...

    Absolutely Outstanding
    I absolutely loved the whole series, though I wish there was a second season.
    The character development is perfect, it never focuses on just one character so you never get bored!
    The soundtrack is amazing!
    The story line is so good it just makes you want to never stop watching!

  • great anime that isn't at all what i expected
    this is an absolutely fantastic anime great story and beautiful art style. although it is a very emotional series so if you are a very emotional person just be warned, i am a pretty emotional person when i comes down to it and to be brutally honest i was teary eyed and on the brink of crying for almost every episode after about the third or forth. but if you don't mind having to pause to wipe your ...
