    A Genre-Redefining Masterpiece!
    In a bizarre dream, kindly fourteen year old Madoka Kaname (voiced by Aoi Yuki) glimpses an apocalyptic battle between a brave magical girl and a world-threatening evil entity, overseen by a weird cat-like magical creature called Kyubey (Emiri Kato). As the magical girl plummets to her doom above the crumbling city, Kyubey tells Madoka only she has the power to save the world. At school the next ...

    My all time favorite anime
    This is NOT a standard magical girl anime, by any means...which is exactly why I watched it.



    When it starts out, it starts as any magical girl anime would. Cute, happy, fun, and magical, however slightly odd and making you feel as though the writer may have been on acid at the time.
    A few episodes later, however, and you quickly realize this anime is like NOTHING you've ever seen before. ...

    Beautiful art, well paced story, really enjoyable overall
    I'll preface this by saying that I'm a sucker for glorious, surreal, dark, Dave Mckean-esque art and this show totally did it for me. My breath was stolen from the beginning and I just couldn't stop watching. I liked that it was like an impossible groundhog day puzzle that got a plausible solution at the end, with pieces being revealed at a steady pace throughout the series. I appreciated the ...

    Give this one 3-4 episodes!
    The Title and cover art will give you a wrong first impression on this anime. This is not a girls dressed up in frilly uniforms with a side of unicorns and rainbows. OK, they are dressed up in uniforms, some frillier than others, but to the point. give this anime about 3 to 4 episodes, it will start getting deeper into the characters after that and a "little" darker story. That's in a nut shell ...

    /人 ◕ ‿‿ ◕ 人\ Kyubey rocks!
    Kyubey... I swear I am the only one that loves the little snot! He is totally a greatest good for the greatest number kinda guy. But hey why magical girls are magical... they get hung up on the little things.

    Witches labyrinths were wicked fun. I enjoyed that animation style a bunch!

  • The most amazing story
    This anime is amazing, i love it so much! In the ending i was crying thinking, why did it have to end that way and after thinking about it i realized that it was Madoka's wish and was happy with it even tho no one remembered her afterwards but Homura and her little brother. Homura is probably the bestest friend i have ever seen in an anime, she did everything in her power to prevent what would ...

    Madoka Magica- An anime worth watching! :3
    When I first saw the Madoka Magica trailer, I thought that the anime would be seriously happy... you know, an everyday sort of anime. Well, I was wrong. But, I've gotta say, it was definitely worth watching this anime. Definitely!
    Well, I don't watch many mahou shoujo animes/mangas... but now I'm totally into them. At first glance, I thought that this was just girls having strange and awesome ...

    individualistic esprit de corps
    Middle school girls, cute outfits, cute critters, glowing things and magic--what could possibly go wrong?! In a word, everything. Yet despite some truly wonderful and impressive character development (especially for such a short series), this show really isn't about that. Or the stuff listed before. This show is about sacrifice, specifically self-sacrifice for the preservation of those ...
