Default Puella Magi Madoka Magica



Madoka Kaname is an Ordinary High School Student with a working mother, a stay-at-home dad and a close circle of friends. Other than a strange dream about a black-haired girl fighting off monsters in a ruined city, her life is a peaceful one. Then, one day, that black-haired girl, Homura Akemi, transfers to their class. Things begin to change when Madoka hears someone's voice calling out to her. This voice belongs to Kyubey, a small ferret-like creature. She and her classmate, Sayaka Miki, then enter into a bizarre dream world where they witness another girl, Mami Tomoe, transform into a magical girl. Kyube then asks Madoka and Sayaka to become magical girls, too. (Taken from TVTropes)

Oh I saw it and it's an epic 1st episode. The Hidamari Sketch style characters, the music, the super cool mama, the Homura, the freaky mustached puff balls, the yuri tidbit in the OP, the Natsume look a like, the glorious combination of Shaft and Hidamari Sketch, the Black Rock Shooter-esque feeling.

If this is the kind of show that awaits us in the coming weeks, then I'm sold doods! This should keep my entertained till the BRS PSP game is released in the US.

2nd episode thoughts:
Well, it is pretty clear that Homura's interest in Madoka is a lot more than just a warning to stay away or just wanted to lower the competition, it HAS to be actual concern for Madoka's safety.
As for the episode itself, it was also pretty good in my view. The thing is, is that last week's episode was a prologue, while this week's episode felt like a tutorial explaining the basics and introducing us to the current situation that Madoka and Sayaka are in. Plus I'm digging the other world's art style, though why make the witches mutants and why the mustached fur balls? (They're still cool though). Can't get enough of Madoka's mom. Sayak's awesome as well. For some reason I really like her seiyuu. I wonder if Hitomi will be the yuri joke character, who feels left out and secretly wants some pie?
I wonder what treats next week will bring?

3rd episode thoughts:
Episode 3 proves without a shout of a doubt that this show IS NOT A COMEDY! DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNG! SO SOON?! Also, I have a feeling that the hypothesis of the ferret/weasel thing (Kyubei) being untrustworthy may not be far off from the truth. This episode once again succeeded in making me go squee and also go gasp at the same time. Yup, this show ROCKS!

As you can see, this is my #1 show of the season, which means this show is mine to review once it ends.

It is one of my favourites of this season too. I love the art-style. Especially the background designs during the witch fights. Really atmospheric show. Very thought-provoking. I don't trust kyubei. I think Madoka's wish will be to fix what broke in episode 3 and I think that it may have been planned by Kyubei. Definitely the show I look forward to most each week.

Episode 3 made it even more apparent that Kyubei is not to be trusted.

Also I really want to know who Homura is. She shows genuine concern about Madoka and tries to prevent her from becoming a magic girl.

There's a few theories regarding her identity. One is that she is

Will this show ever stop kicking ass? Based on how it's doing so far...I doubt it. so yeah, episode 4 is yet another great episode.

Oh, and for those who knew this was coming...SUUUUUPEEEEERRRRR BAAAAAAAAAT! I don't care what it actually is, (It's pretty obvious when you see it) it'll always be the Super Bat to me.

Anyway, the darkness continues to grow and the chaos keeps getting more intense each week. Even the laughs have diminished to minor comedy moments that even THOSE have meaning now.
One very minor spoiler...night of the living and a sort of homage to Silent Hill 3 if you can recognize it. Anyway, I have A LOT to say about this show but I'll save my words till March when I review this bad boy on The G-Views. Oh yes, I'll be looking forward to typing as much as I can on this show. Could it be my 100th episode? hmhmhm, who knows?

Just watched episode 5. Good episode. We see how a contract is formed, a new Magic Girl and there's a good fight scene.
