  • 1st season Review- Magia Record
    I generally liked what I saw. I did get a bit bored on the story for 1 or 2 episodes but that was quickly replaced when something new popped up. I definitely liked how they excited me in the last episode, the last scene but I guess that was something to be expected. Why I gave it 5 stars instead of 4 would be the superb soundtrack. I am literally listening to Nigredo every day. With no ...

    This show is pointless
    the only thing this show has in common with the original is the name and world, the tone is way lighter than the original and the writing is just bad. That's what happens when you adapt a mobile game though. bizarre. I was excited when it was announced but it doesn't even resolve the horrible cliffhanger from the last movie. I have no clue what the studio is thinking.

  • Played the game first, loved it
    Having played through the mobile game storyline, the anime was a delight. My friend who hadn't played the game, but had seen the original series, watched with me and found it a bit hard to follow. I'm glad I played the game first and held off watching until I had finished the story in-game. The anime moves at such a relatively fast pace that the emotional weight of the interactions between ...

    Maybe a good show, but probably not great
    Needless to say, "Madoka Magica" is a hugely popular show. However it was such a great show, the sequel series are always discussed with criticism. "Magia Record" is no exception. I admit the picture quality is superb, but about story and character? First of all, there are too many characters (likely because this show's origin is a game). And I didn't feel motivation in those characters - at least ...

    Una diferente adaptacion
    El anime nos cuenta de como se convirtieron en Mahou Shoujo (Chicas magicas) en momentos donde cada personaje tiene su protagonismo, queda bien,nos da cameos que para los que jugadores es un deleite, ademas de contar con el juego de planos que hacen shaft (su estilo propio) que son una maravilla, ya desde el comienzo la historia es muy diferente a los de los juego, cambios que en si no son una ...

    Magia Record is a new favorite of mine!
    As a fan of the original Madoka Magica series and films, I was so excited for this to come out. I'm not disappointed at all. The characters are interesting and lovable, and a bit more relatable to me than the original girls (except for Sayaka and Homura-of course!). The animation is crisp and gorgeous, and as one could expect- the worldbuilding is fascinating! I hope for another season soon!

    Better than I expected
    I had great expectations, and really wasn't disappointed. I play with the game, and thought the game came from the anime and not the other way around, and the anime is really not cheap, it's beautiful <3
    Shaft studio delivered, again.

    This is really mediocre
    I guess it's hard to judge the sequel without thinking about how great the original was. It will be hard for any sequel to repeat the surprises and unusual twists and turns of the original..but this sequel is just too convoluted and too uninteresting to be honest. I was able to watch 6 episodes and just skipped the rest.

    A fantasy mystery with lots of personality
    A classic mystery adventure in a fantasy setting. The story is set in it's own series of events so watching related shows/movies is not necessary to enjoy it fully, it is a true side story. If I had to say something good about this show it would easily be the art. Visuals is a treat to the eyes, with backgrounds, details, and adornments that create a very artistic environment at all times. Use of ...

    Same mood, lackluster story
    Writing this 6 episodes in, they seem to have captured sort of the same tone, but really this story just isn't that compelling. I don't really care about any of the characters. It's almost like taking this franchise and pushing it into the cliche format of "stuff happens then they battle the monster of the week and win". There's so many main characters, it's hard to really feel connected to ...
