I agree with your statement, but that's because the only show I watched this winter was Madoka... :d

Have you listened to the full version of the OP? I'm really liking CariS and hope that they will continue doing openings during the spring season. Connect~

Yeah, connect's better than Irony (OP for OreImo), and Irony was decent as well. I was surprised ClariS was a bunch of lolis though.

I can't believe there's a delay on the show. The last two eps should be epic. lol

All I can say about it is that it has a very interesting art style. It is a little more fluid than the standard anime. I can't agree with the statement that Kyube is super cute though. Sorry!

Same. I thought they were in their 20's at least.

As for the last two episodes, I can't wait to see how it raps up.
Spoiler:
I'm predicting a gainax end.

I dunno, I thought it looked cute. Guess it's just me though.

yeah I thought the animation was quite fluid. There are random dropped frames that weren't very nice, but in general it's not noticed at all when the action's going on. I didn't know about the shoddy frames until some avid anime watchers were complaining about it.

I don't think titanium has watched it yet. Just doing spoilers in case.

Spoiler:
I'm predicting some sort of bittersweet end. Probably something akin to Umineko's ending.

I dunno. I find myself relating to Homura well. Perhaps I see some of myself in her. I really do want what's best for her, but at the same time it seems likely that she will die.

That seems like it will happen, unfortunately. Or another time loop will start... :/

Watching it now. The title is awfully similar to Negima's longer title: Magister Negi Magi Malicus... this is primarily why it grabbed my attention. (There is also a character in Negima named Nodoka, similar to Madoka) ._.

You don't have to worry about putting things in spoilers. I honestly don't mind spoiling the stories, because I always eventually rewrite the story in my imagination, in what I think is an improved version. =D

Fan fic author at heart I guess.

Naw, this series thrives on anti-spoiling.

Also, Madoka's last 2 eps are being delayed because SHAFT is stupid and can't get a work schedule right. It'll air in April.

Spoiler:
Watch they air the last ep at Walpurgisnaucht, April 30.

Wow... I just finished watching the last episode and, although cheesy, it was good. What did you think?

I liked it. It was yuri cheese (complete with the red string of fate), which is arguably the best kind of cheese to exist, so I'm cool with that. Honestly the ending would have been disappointing if it were to go the way of
Spoiler:
a bad end. Instead the ending was bittersweet as I had predicted.


Spoiler:
The fight against Walpurgisnacht was epic. Infinite missiles, oil trucks, guns blazing, etc. You can see the animation budget being poured into that thing. Well worth the month.

I liked the end with Homura's witch-like wings after the credits. It looks to be set in some sort of an apocalypse and her powers seem to have evolved from bow/arrow to w/e Mami does with the strings. Heck, Incubator isn't around either. I honestly think that this is the hook for a season 2. Considering how successful Madoka is, I wouldn't be surprised. Besides, Faust has 2 parts in its play. :O


I honestly have no idea why nobody is licensing this despite it being incredibly popular in North America. I'd drop cash for BD/DVD.

A friend recommended Mahou Shoujo to me. I don't have alot of time on my hands or the motivation to watch long animes anymore, but I figured since this one was only 12 episodes, I'd knock it out easily. Mahou Shoujo is the best magical girl anime I've seen because of how dark and edgy the story is. These girls are serious business and things can easily get whacked out at any moment.

For the most part, I love all the characters. I still hold favourites though, that being Kyoko Sakura and Mami Tomoe. As for Kyubey, yes he is quite cute, and at the same time very daunting. I can't say I am astonished Kyubey has become an Internet meme of sorts.
