  • Nostalgia!! Reminds me of a modern Sailor Moon!
    This anime is great! Reminds me of a mix between Sailor Moon, and the very recent Black Rock Shooter. I nearly skipped out on this very cool anime because the icon gives the impression that these characters are "chibi." Luckily, that isn't the case.

    Overall this has plenty of action, some light, non-cheesy humor, and a fairly dark and twisted plot for an anime set in middle school. The ...

    Be careful what you wish for...
    Being a fledgling otaku fan-sub, I greedily grab all the RAW anime coming out of Japan and sift through the chafe finding those anime destined to be legend. "Puella Magi Madoka Magica' or simply 'Madoka', is to become part of my library alongside AnoHana, Katanagatari and Death Note.

    Similar to 'DeathNote', there is the unnerving unblinking supernatural, a 'kyubey' (remotely ...

    The new Magic Girl its here
    Thanks of Sailor Moon and maybe pretty cure (and all the other Magic girl) we know that main girl animus are so sweet and they have a happy ending, no matter what happens. Friendship, love and overcoming are the principal values that they tach to everyone. Madoka Magica apparently is the same, but it drastically changes in episode 3. While in animes people don't die (and if they do, the magically ...

    EPIC. That's all you need to know.
    The first impression of this anime that I had when I saw the picture and the discription was that it was going to be a repetitive, annoying magical girl anime, like Tokyo Mew Mew and Shugo Chara. I was really bored so I watched it, and it is EPIC, the characters are very well developed and interesting, the plot is awesome and non-repetitive, and the witch labyrinths are epic and trippy.

    Give this one a try...
    This is NOT an anime that I would have watched at all, but for a lucky accident. I was at an anime convention (as the chaperone for my teenage daughter and two friends, if you must know), and sat down to watch the first episode during some dead time. The imagery of the opening segment hooked me for the first episode; the mixed-media encounter with the first witch hooked me into watching the second ...

    Read Less, Just Watch It
    It's tempting fate to read comments about the series because so many people have already seen this, and a lot of them seem to assume that everyone else has seen it. Spoilers are freely posted in comments and such.

    This is not a fan service series, at all. The story is deep, the characters are memorable, and the ending... is what it needs to be. I'll leave it at that.

    Just go watch it.

    It lives up to the hype
    Fictional stories that are continuously hyped have had the tendency of not fulfilling the audience’s lofty expectations toward the work. Hype, as defined by the dictionary, is to promote or publicize a product or idea intensively often exaggerating its importance or benefits. Puella Magi Madoka Magica matches the latter definition of hype but is the exception to the frequency by which a narrative ...
