  • A Wonderful Deconstruction
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of Urobuchi's finest works, successfully deconstructing the magical girl genre. It depicts the stress of being a magical girl, and its emotionally conflicting ending (especially that of the third movie Rebellion) will move the viewer as one realizes that the life of a magical girl is not always magical.

  • A Refreshing Anime from the Magical Girl Genre
    This anime is an odd one,to be sure.With it's strange mix of artstyles and characters,it'd be impossible to say otherwise.However,the creativity shines through in every episode,quite literally exploding in your face.Pretty much everything in this anime is unique and original,and will surely leave you wanting more.The bright colors and seemingly cheerful characters hide a grim story full of ...

  • Amazing anime!!!!!!!
    This is an AMAZING anime. Just trust me on the one. I finished the entire series in a week it is so good! Btw the reason it took so long is because I have other important hobbies. But trust me, if you watch this anime you will want to watch it again. I did! I will warn you, it does give you a ton of feels, and it has lesbians. Here is a summary of it: "Lesbians fighting witches". Boom there you ...

  • Wow, I never expected that!
    I was not expecting this series to be as sad as it was. The first two episodes are the biggest tease in the world as they don't even come close to representing the really dark and sad turn this show takes at episode 3. By the time the final episodes were coming up and the true story was unfolding, I felt horrible.

    This is a sad show and I really felt for the characters. The twist the story ...

    Whoa........What the heck man?
    If any of you think this series is going to be a light-hearted magical girl anime, RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN! My main question for the writers is WHY IS THIS SERIES SO DARK!?!?! I mean, good god this is darker than a DC film! Yet that's what makes this show so memorable: it's misleading, and takes your heartstrings as a rope to keep you in a bag with the fells face on it, toss you down the ...

  • THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!
    I watched the 1st episode of this anime many many months ago because the different podcasts I listened to kept referencing it so I thought i'd give it a try. I was instantly turned OFF with it.. I couldn't get pass the 1st episode. It was so dull to me.

    Now many many months later I decided to give it another try. I stuck it out the first 2 episodes and when I got to the 3rd episode....... ...

  • Don't stop until you watch 3 episodes
    I liked this series for a lot of reasons. First of all there is heavy imagery and foreshadowing everywhere. Just watching even the first episode you can feel that things are going to get dark as the story continues. A lot of people say the series is rather dark. It may be that I have watched a few too many anime, but I think this series was slightly dark at best. This made the series rather good ...

  • Magical Girls aren't all that magical
    At first, I heard way too much about this show. That it was great, tragic and everything else. It was hard for me to get into because everyone had spoiled most of it, But after the third time, I was prepared to sit through it and watch it.

    It was a good show, very interesting, the graphics were well done. Decent character development, it did well tying a lot of things together and paced well. I ...

    One of it's own kind
    One of the best anime I ever seen.
    I admit, at first I was expecting a Sailor Moon reboot.
    If you make it past episode three, you're hooked for sure.
    You'll cry a bit throughout the series, especially episode twelve.
    It has a very interrogating storyline, you have no idea what'll happen next, the whole series is one question itself.
    Most of these reviews will say how ...
