8. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Madoka’s hype was like nothing I’ve ever seen in the anime world. It was announced quite a while before it came out as a sort of dream team collaboration. You had SHAFT, which was becoming one of the most acclaimed studios in the industry, since this was released only a couple years after Monogatari. You had Yuki Kajiura, one of the medium’s most legendary composers, and she brought Kalafina with her from Kara no Kyoukai. You had Gen Urobuchi, writer of Saya no Uta/Saya’s Song, one of the greatest visual novels ever written. And finally, the character designs were being done by Ume Aoki, who was… kind of a weird fit, but gave the project a sense of novelty at least. And when it came out, it didn’t disappoint. Even early on when it’s a bit more of a typical magical girl series, it has a neat atmosphere and style to it that are totally unique, and the ED theme is one of the best out there in terms of establishing a mood for a show. Of course, the twists (and the introduction of Kyoko) all serve to make the show so much better.

The dark drama of the show is pretty much all awesome. The “twist” in ep 3 didn’t really move me (especially since I was already familiar with some of Urobuchi’s works), but everything after that was fantastic, and of course it was necessary for setting things up later on. Basically every single episode is fantastic. The art’s cool, the animation’s cool, and the character interaction is excellent. The main five are all good characters, though I didn’t like Mami that much, and Homura/Kyoko are clearly the greatest of the lot. I also liked the show’s ending. It might’ve been a little too happy, but it kind of had bad-ish ends for Homura/Madoka/Sayaka, so I was okay with that level of happiness. Rebellion’s ending is much less compelling. Rebellion itself is pretty cool, with some amazing fights, though it’s not quite as good as the series overall. But the ending was a little too happy for real this time, since it basically erased all the bad ends from before and made everyone happy. Even Homura being ‘the devil’ or whatever isn’t portrayed negatively in the slightest. Led to some good doujins at least...

One of the best things to come out of Rebellion was when all 5 main magical girls finally team up with transformation sequences and all.

Also the witch's domains were all very trippy in a good way.

I thought Madoka was okay, but it definitely didn’t live up to the hype for me

Happy birthday topic!

Madoka absolutely lived up to the hype for me. One of my regrets is not watching it as it aired.

Madoka's pretty good. Rebellion is also pretty fun, but agreed it isn't as good as the main series. I think my opinion of it could be improved with a continuation of the story (which I keep hearing about but never see anything substantial) to build on it but without it =/

The phone game is getting an anime, but I'm not sure how related that is to the main plot or if it will be canon or whatever.
