    GO INTO THIS ANIME BLIND
    For the greatest viewing experience, go into this anime with as little knowledge as possible. All I will say to avoid spoilers is that the music is god-tier (Yuki Kajiura can do no wrong), the art design is truly unique and jaw-dropping, and the characters will tug at your emotions in all directions.

    The Harsh Truth about Magical Girls
    This show has some fine drama. People are lured into the show because it's about magical girls, and they think everything's pastel colours and love.

    The characters suffer so greatly in this show, without knowing what awaits them. The OST reflects that.

    #148. Careful what you wish for.
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica the famous magical girl show, is more than meets the eye.

    It's really hard to say anything about Madoka Magica without getting into spoiler territory. To at least describe the anime a bit, it is a psychological thriller, with some good drama, that takes the magical girl genre and flips it on it's head.

    I Don't Watch Magical Girl Shows
    I don't watch magical girl shows but this is by far the best anime I have ever watched. The artwork is GORGEOUS and the characters are way too easy to get attached to. The bright colors on the ads/covers for this show masks the darkness it contains - but don't let it scare you. It won't let you down.

    Essential Magical Girl Anime
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is required viewing in the magical girl genre. It redefined the type of show with an updated angle: the cost of being a magical girl, and the drama the created within their existence. We follow a group of girls who learn the price through their experience of becoming a magical girl, and the inherent responsibilities required by their existence. When whats at stake ...

    Dark Twist on an Adorable Trope
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica was, is, and always will be a fond memory of one of my favorite tropes, the "Magical Girl," facing true horror and making terrible sacrifices.

    When I first heard of this series, I evaded it for fear of one of my favorite childhood fantasies turning into a nightmare. But now that I have seen the dark side of the "Magical Girl," I just can't get enough of it.

    Something that touched my heart greatly
    I'm not even sure where to begin. There is so many things I could say about this beautiful series but I'm pretty sure I could keep that all to myself.

    I watched this anime for the first time a little more than 2 years ago thanks to the influence of a close friend of mine and man was I in for a spin.The cute style and vibrant colors drew me in because, like many others, I'm ...

    Don't Expect The Best Anime Of All Time
    Many of you have probably heard a lot of great things about this show and for the most part they are true. Madoka Magica is a "Magical Girl" show that breaks the molds of the genre. However my feeling on this show were less than perfect.
    The pacing of this show is very slow. So slow in fact that the first few episodes really really dragged for me even having me quit and revisiting this ...

    One of my favorites, watch it now!
    Amazing show. DON'T READ COMMENTS BEFORE WATCHING. Go into it not knowing anything and this show is just amazing. Well heck, even knowing the whole plot now, I'd still watch it again cause its that good.

    One thing I really love is the animation style and how it switches into something completely new when in the magical world. Really well done.
