Puella Magi Madoka Magica ~SPOILERS EVERYWHERE~
« on: April 29, 2011, 09:52:18 pm »
Oh my gosh you guys, I just finished this series.

It is, without a doubt, one of the best anime I have ever seen. The plot, the writing, the design of everything was all amazing. The actual art of the characters (especially their faces) could be a lot better, but I would legitimately forget I was watching an anime while watching the series.

Has anyone else watched this yet?

I'm in love with PMMM. Some friends and I already have a full group for Cosplay, including a mascot Kyubey, who will have contracts for everyone to sign! :)

If you you like Magical Girl anime, you'll love Madoka. If you like psychological anime, you'll love madoka. If you like action/fighting anime, you'll love madoka. If you call yourself an anime fan, you'll LOVE MADOKA.
I haven't watch many new series, infact it was the first series I watched all the way through in a few years (last was Rose of Versallies to show how up to date I am haha). I seriously reccomend this to everyone.



Sum it up?

(thinking about printing these off and hanging them around the con hehe)

Watch it but get out of this thread because there are so many spoilers already. I got spoilers and it sucks >:

And Caroline that's beautiful. I love that image hahaha~ There was a Coobie at Sakuracon who had contracts you could sign but I didn't have time to sign one ;^;

Someone has recommended that we show this at our anime club.  In fact, we've got our "election for new anime" day today; it might be on the list of contenders...

Hmmm. I think I'll have to put this back on my list of anime to check out. The Latinish title caught my eye enough to be interested... then I heard someone saying they found elements of it disturbing in a bad way, and checked it off.

But if you guys say it's the kind of anime that makes you think, that's good enough for me to add it back. (^_^)

Parts of it are kind of disturbing, but not terrifyingly so. I'm a total wuss and I loved it.
I'd put the disturbing level far below Higurashi or Umineko.

I had to stop watching this one. It was just too evil. It's the same kind of eveil used in Swift's "A Modest Proposal." Or "Soylent Green"

But I did think it was a well done anime. If you can handle the premise, it's good TV.
Have Fun

I got to where we "really" know what time it is. Somewhere between 6 and 8. I think.

I must have been afraid of another School Days ending or something.

But, I do think some people should watch this. I just don't like evil to be so....self-deludedly amoral. It's real easy to rationalize abhorrent behavior this way.

Besides, that's why we don't let kids make contracts!

But you know, in some ways, this is kind of a parable of supporting the elderly. Or at least I could see it as such. Especially in Japan, where there are more and more old people, and fewer and fewer young ones.

It turns out that I was wrong; it wasn't on the list.  I'll still mention this to the Director of Programming, though.  I can see her wanting to show this, too.

I'm just going to say it now.

The world is ending. Gen Urobochi wrote a semi-happy ending. Pigs are flying. Hell is freezing over. You should all stock up on canned goods for when the zombies start hunting in packs. I know I will.

I freaking love Puella Magi. The anime is amazing, and its relatively short, so it was a big plus for me.
The ending...;A; I cried for most of episode 12, haha. The ending wasn't as sad as I figured it would be, but still wasn't what I expected.

I didn't cry the whole time EXCEPT when only her brother remembers her, then I cried enough to make up for the entire series.

I picked up the series in it's entirety. I plan on skipping through a bit, just because I can.

I hope it doesn't get more depressing than it was until I had to stop.

It's written by Urobochi. It gets exponentially more depressing and grim as it goes on, except for some reason the end which i refuse to spoil.

Like i've already stated, this surprised me to a great degree. We're talking about the man behind Saya no Uta.

Trust me when I say you'll get REALLY confused if you "skip through" the series. You can't do that without ending up frustrated and not liking the series.

Seriously people just sit down and watch it, it's not that hard.

I am hilariously weak willed.

Within minutes of the Madoka figma going on preorder, I had it in my Hobbysearch cart and checked out.

And they're planning to do all five girls. My poor wallet will never be ready.

I just finished watching this. :) GOOD SERIES. It's like magical girls mixed with Higurashi, with maybe a little Buffy and a dash of LSD~ Ooh, and pretty animation.

Yeah, it was a good watch! :D Interesting twist on the whole magical girl scenario. Much more interesting than studying! I now find Kyubey a little terrifying, though...
