    This is the magic of Puella Magi Madoka Magica
    There are shows I rewatch to relive the magic, only to learn the magic has faded. There are times I fear the magic has faded, only for it to persist. And there are times the magic persists, and creates a miracle that improves a show. This is the show where the magic persists. This is the story where the miracle unfolds. This is the tale known as Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

    But honestly, the ...

    Reveals the Darkness inside Wish Fufillment
    Madoka Magica has all the same elements as almost every other magical girl anime: a mascot that looks like a mutant cat, evil witches to fight, external sources of power for the magical girls, etc. However it is the way these tropes are explored that makes this anime shocking, deep, thought-provoking, surreal, and brilliant. The show begins deceptively: average, friendly middle-school girl is ...

    Took the Magical Girl genre and flipped it around in all sorts of ways.
    This being one of the first animes I watched I really had absolutely no I idea what to expect. Trailers and images of the show set it up to be a very cute and child oriented Magical Girl show, but wow, it was anything but. In short it is about getting what you want and what you are willing to give up for that, and it is amazing.

    I don't often do reviews
    But this show has done things I didn't think possible. It made me laugh and it made me cry, and in the end it made me cry while giving it a standing ovation. The show is remarkably well contained within itself, telling the viewer everything he/she needs to know when they need to know it.The characters are wonderful and tragic. Most intriguing to me however was the way it managed to portray itself ...

    Too much praise received

    Darker than what it seems
    This anime, while looking like a light anime for kids on the outside changes dramatically after 2 episodes. Everything from the atmosphere to the music seems to get darker. The style of animation is also beautiful. Highly recommended if you are into dark fantasy.

    Don't Let These Cute Girls Take You By Surprise
    It's so true. This series is not what it seems. The cute character designs to the girls with magical powers - it's all a trip up sending people on the ride of their life. Within the first few episodes, you know something is not right about the impression that the series originally gives you. In fact, I think that I will go so far as to say that this show is actually dark.

    While being ...

    Not your average magical girl styled anime
    I was pleasantly surprised by this show. The first couple episodes are misleading in that you are expecting a lighter, magical girl style anime. However, by the end of episode 3 you will figure out that there's a bit more to this one. At only 12 episodes it's an easy one to work through and if you are like me you'll wind up powering through them as the story just draws you in more and more. ...

    A must-watch anime..
    I wish I'd started watching anime much sooner so I could have seen this series earlier.. it has a very unique plot line unlike any other anime. This is not your typical magical girl anime.. if you are here for some kawaii girl action, then turn back right now. But still watch it. Because it's amazing.
    I started recommending it to anyone I could immediately after I finished. Madoka Magica is ...

    You have to stay with it till Episode 3
    I was REALLY skeptical when I was first told to watch this show. It's about middle school girls talking about friendship and magic and sticking together and yada yada yada. So I will tell you what I was told, you have to stick with it till the end of episode 3, because after that you wont be able to stop watching.

    Fair warning it gets dark, like really dark. Don't watch it if you think this ...
