    Subaru put thier name on this trash?
    Seriously. I love the cars, but if they want me to lose respect for the brand this is the way to go. Ganax must have sold out hard to do this...

    Pointless, semi plotless anime aimed at perverts and kids. Shallow loli characters, almost no plot. O wait there is a squid ball thing... A girl so hairbrained and forgetful another character calls it out as a point of plot. I agreed. She is too ...

    Typical Magical Girl
    As the title says, this is your typical magical girl anime. It has a lot of common traits; childhood friend moved away and reunited, flying "broomsticks", pink haired main character...etc. etc. It switches between drawn animation and 3D rendered at times, showing a higher budget than normal.

    Kinda generic, but still cute if you're into magical girl anime.

    Sakura Cardcaptor meets Ojamajo Doremi?
    Although this may seem like a generic anime, It's really nostalgic to see these type of gently cute anime's back on. It's pretty obvious that the intended audience is by no means a male one, so from a girl's point of view I'm really enjoying this 2015 version of magical girls, and nicer yet because It did not portray any perverted stuff, and trust me, for us girls, that makes this easier for our ...

    Going back to the basics
    No grimdark. No fanservice. Oldschool magical girl anime fun.

    It is based on a series of online shorts, and if it sticks to the sourse material, it should stay fun. Definitely not for the 18-49 y/o male periphery demographic that a lot of recent mahou shoujo series have been for.

    Cute Magical Girls with Aliens!
    I had just been missing this kind of magical girl show!! Unlike most recently there hasn't been anything I would consider very inappropriate (as of episode 3), but instead a nice story of young girls realizing their potential and helping an alien along the way. I hope it will stay cute with a pretty decent storyline, and I look forward to the future episodes!

    It's a fun show if you know what you're getting into; but how could you not?
    If you like magical girl anime, then you'll probably like this. Cute characters, pretty thin on the fanservice besides some bathing suit/boob jokes, good music, nice aestheic; I enjoy it.

    There are some gripes, but from the get-go you know that they're going to be in here:

    Overly emphatic dialogue about shallow subjects, "if you believe in yourself you can do it!", "hey let's go get this ...

    Web net animation to TV anime adaptation~<3
    I watched this when it was a web net animation in 2011~<3 I loved it and it actually broke my heart almost :c It's super cute, but it really does have the basic magical girl plot. Seeing that they brought it back into an animation adaptation made me so happy~<3

    Cute Magical Girls and Space!
    Wish Upon the Pleiades is a mix of magical girl (mainly cute witch) and slice of life with some Sci-Fi elements mixed in. Overall, this is a good choice for those looking for a feel-good show with cute characters.
    Some of the dialogue can be rather silly at times and sometimes the animation is awkward but otherwise this is a very enjoyable show with lovable characters, and it's definitely worth ...

    I did not like this no no
    This anime is a blatant copy of Madoka Magica and anyone who has seen Madoka Magica and this show know it. The characters looks the same and the story is basically the same. They are also magical girls but instead of fighting in labrynths, they fight in space. Unfortunately, I could not go further in this show. It pained me to go further than episode three. You may think I am being out of line or ...

    Cute, Touching, and Po-warm
    Maho shojou, astronomy, cosplay, aliens, and friendship.

    If any of the above appeal to you, this may be a nice series to watch!

    While it looks cute, and fluffy and genki and stuff, it actually has a melancholic mood, so if you aren't in the mood for feels, then wait until you're ready.

    One good thing is that this anime does not have too much fan service, but there is a themed episode, ...
