    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.

  • Completely Unexpectable
    This show really does look cute, but the plot is anything but. I could not believe that something as ridiculous as magic girls can become this deep and psychological, with every choice showing the nature of humanity. If anything, this shows is a lot like Evangelion, so if you liked that you'll definitely like this!

  • Omg the darkest anime I have ever watched
    Ok, so it may seem like this is a regular magical girl anime, right? But NO it's not. Beneath its sunshine and sparkles, is a sad, brooding, and melancholy story. This is one of the anime's that make your side seem like the good guys, but you technically aren't.
    I definitely recommend this anime, since this has been my favorite anime of all time. 10/10~!

    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.

  • Love to watch them suffer.
    Do you ever get tired of happy endings? Do you hate shows where everything seems to go right for the main character? Do you live for schadenfreude? This is the series for you.

    My favorite thing about this show is that no matter how adorable it is, and boy oh boy is it freaking adorable, it cannot make up for the seething psychological demonic undertones lurking in the shadows. This series will ...

  • best show in the entire planet
    oh boy. madoka magica... yeah, it's a deconstruction anime on the magical shojo usual concept that might come from shows like winx and saylor moon. definitely not for those who just want to watch something fun and engaging for the name of love and friendship.
    that's all I've got to say. so, unless you haven't already - go watch madoka magica now buddy.

    #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.

  • One of few anime that is good until the end
    It's another magic girl anime but with none of the corny parts of it. This is a subversion of the genre but more important than that, it's just a good fucking show. A 12-episode series that has cute girls and very interesting art work. The magical world is this stop-motion + abstract art which paints the magical world as almost foreign and incomprehensible. It's got twists and turns, characters ...
