    Surprisingly Good Series
    Overall: (5/5) This is one of the most surprising, entertaining, disturbing, and thought-provoking series I've ever seen. I love how it takes a completely different approach to the magical girl genre.

    Storyline: (5/5) This is one of the most original concepts in anime that I have seen in a long time and ranks right there with Utena. Looks are deceiving, as I did not expect such a cute, ...

    Such a Love/Hate Relationship with an Anime
    I have a love/hate relationship with this anime. Mostly love.

    First off: On the surface, it's a very good thriller anime and a brilliant take on the magical girl genre.
    Second: Deeper below the surface, it's a very good take down and analysis of the magical girl genre.
    Third: It has so many different elements in it and it borrows from so many different stories that you can't help but become ...

    pmmm and other stuff
    this show seems fluffy and annoying like other mg animes but NOOOOOOO this show is a mix of art and darkness. because the witch's labyrinth is so colorful and pretty yet disturbing and terrifying. and the whole show itself is twisted and and has a dark feel to it. its absolutely wonderful. the show is also fluffy and gentle when you get to the final episode.

    Oddly One Of The Best I've Seen
    By the final episode Puella Magi Madoka Magica became one of the best stories I've had the pleasure to watch. Probably as much because of its intended departure from the Magic Girl norm as anything else; it struck cords that I didn't expect and made for one of my most memorable viewing experiences. It's difficult to offer a proper review without giving away important plot elements. All I'll say ...

  • No words can descibe
    This anime is just AMAZING. the twist was perfect, though i have to say i wanted to quit watching after the 3rd ep do to gettting hacked of at certain events. though it all came full circle in the end. I DEFINITELY recommend this anime to someone who is looking for a new one to start, or want to seee a horror/ sorrow packed show twist your mind inside out and backward, before ending with a twist ...

  • Great for its own sake, and as a commentary on magical girl anime
    This series is funny, touching, and smart. It combines an intense personal story with a self-conscious examination of the realities that other magical girl series sweep under the rug.

    In addition, the set design and animation are absolutely top notch.

    Doesn't live up to the hype.
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the much acclaimed magical girl series, supposedly different from every other one out there. Though this is an entertaining series that puts a fresh spin onto an over-used idea, it doesn't deserve all the praise it's getting.

    Story: 9/10
    I admit, this plotline is very unique and well thought-out. Very nice foreshadowing, and the plot twists are nicely done. There ...

    Huge Story Building!
    I would normally only write reviews if I had truly enjoyed the anime full 5/5 but for this one, I'm going to have to give it a 4/5 for the following reasons.

    This majority of the episodes are story building and to get a real kick out of the great action sequences towards the end you'll have to take your time to look at the story from the opening to middle to get the gist of all the paranormal ...

    Well that was interesting...
    I've been hearing about Madoka Magica from friends for a long time now - they would tell me it was a great anime, filled with unexpected twists, and even though some scenes in it were 'messed up' or super depressing, it was addicting nonetheless.
    I have to admit, PMMM is indeed a great anime; it kept me on the edge of my seat, from wondering if Madoka would ever become a magical girl to ...
