Quick Thoughts: Puella Magi Madoka Magica


Best example of deception :3

This month's random entry would be some quick thoughts on this series.

Well, I've recently felt more like an Otaku than ever, especially this winter anime season where I found myself watching a vast array of the new titles this season. One of the most interesting things this season would be Puella Magi Madoka Magica or Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

Why is that? Of course, upon a first look and impression, it'll be your typical Mahou Shoujo type show, but guess what first impressions are definitely wrong here, even the opening itself is deception at its finest. You'd think it's a fun fun show? Well, think again, this show actually gives me the creeps. Everything looked fine until a shocking scene in episode 3, which pretty much will most likely change the impression onto anyone. And that scene is actually turning into Meme level now. But anyway, what that is, just watch and let the shock get to you. :p

This is still in a way a mahou shoujo show, but the formula's tweaked very much turning the usual impression into something different and might even be new. Though episode 3 has left me heartbroken, the twists and the run of the series is just that praise-worthy that it alone will keep you tuned in for the next episodes. For one thing I'd spoil, this show's theme is dark, REALLY DARK, who would've expect but hey, it's still the 2nd most interesting show of the season for me. So, if you haven't watched it, definitely watch it.

Anyway, here's the series' opening song "Connect" by ClariS.
