  • Action-packed and emotional
    While the odd art work in many seems was a bit disturbing, I eventually got over it.
    This series is filled with action and emotion.
    The show’s a shocker, and not at all what I expected.
    One actually cares about the characters. I highly recommend it, plus it’s only 12 episodes.

  • Madoka Magica: The Surface is Only the Beginning
    I had always heard of this animation as being phenomenal, so I decided to finally explore its world despite its magical girl exterior.

    ...nothing could have prepared me for the absolute turbulence that was to come. The story is far darker than one would expect, and manages to enrapture a solid variety of characters and a very twisted and complex plot into 12 solid episodes. Ideas of loyalty, ...

  • Experience U+2605 U+2606
    For now I have nothing to say but I remember things when I was young and this reminded me of what... How do I put this in words? For now I have little to say. Madoka Magica is a wonderful watch. I'll leave you with this, is it wrong to be without emotion?

  • An Inventive and Thrilling Series
    I really enjoyed this series! The first three episodes hard to get to, but after that it starts getting into the meat of this series. It has an intresting premise, which is delved into as the the series progresses. You learn what it truly means to be a magical girl!

  • The Best Magical Girl Anime
    This is my second time watching this series, because you need to watch it at least twice to truly understand and appreciate it. PMMM is a beautiful show that covers dark topics, with a light and refreshing art style to boot. I love how it draws in unsuspecting people with its cutesy appearance. But as with most things, things aren't always what they seem. I've watched anime for many, many years, ...

  • Totally cutesy and girly... Totally not lying
    You should start watching the show right now. No I'm serious. I would make a spoiler-free review but that's kind of impossible as if I didn't spoil anything the show wouldn't seem as good.
    This entire series was amazing! Mami got a bit ahead of heerself when she was fighting Charlotte though. Homura's backstory and her friendship with Madoka, fighting an endless ...

  • Absolutely brilliant
    What appears to be the most appallingly cliche premise possible quickly turns into a heart breaking, sincerely engrossing experience that only gets better with subsequent viewings. Every trope has a purpose, and isn't just tossed out there as weak fan service or for the sake of conventionality. The surreal (and I would imagine to some, silly) alternate worlds of the witches clash with the normalcy ...

  • Needs to Be Longer!!
    Best anime ever. :'( left my boyfriend and I in tears, I can't believe anyone would thumbs it down!!!!! Even though its only a show, I can't stop feeling bad when I think of them and Madoka's faith. I will read everything and watch anything related to this Anime/Manga series and 100% recommend!

  • Yes, the hype is legit
    If you're on the fence of whether or not you'll enjoy this show, watch it. If you've heard great reviews, mixed reviews, or even poor reviews (the latter is unlikely), watch it. If you're a fan of the Magical Girl or not, watch it. EVERYONE IN THEIR MID TO LATE TEENS AND OLDER NEED TO WATCH THIS SHOW. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION ON ANIME FOREVER.

    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.
