Mahou Shoujo (Puella Magi) Madoka Magika


Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (translates roughly as Magical Girl Madoka Magica; official international title is Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is a 2011 anime series produced by Studio SHAFT (Bakemonogatari, Pani Poni Dash!, Hidamari Sketch, Dance in the Vampire Bund). As described by TVTropes, 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.



This anime brings together an amazing, all-star cast and crew for its production. Beyond being animated by Studio SHAFT, original character designs are by Ume Aoki (Hidamari Sketch), with Aoi Yuki (Mina Tepes in Dance in the Vampire Bund) as Madoka, Chiwa Saito (Rebecca Miyamoto in Pani Poni Dash!; Francesca Lucchini in Strike Witches) as Homura, Eri Kitamura (Rin Kokonoe in Kodomo no Jikan) as Sayaka, and Emiri Kato (Kagami Hiiragi in Lucky Star) as Kyubey. Akiyuki Shinbo (The SoulTaker; Bakemonogatari) acts as lead director, with Yuki Kajiura (Kimagure Orange Road; Le Portrait de Petit Cossette) as music writer. ClariS (Irony, opening of Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai) sings the opening.

I am watching episode 1 right now, and I can tell you all right now that this is far different from any magical girl series yet created. It has a darker, more mature tone than others, and it features some very unique plot, character and writing quirks that normally don't show up in these types of shows. This show would make Sailor Moon run for cover, and it'd make Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha blush. This looks to be the one anime to keep an eye out on this season.

Just be warned. At times, you'll feel like you're having an acid trip.

A really bad acid trip.

While in an art museum.

And yet it's strangely intriguing.

...seriously, I just don't know WHAT to think of this show right now. All I know is that it's really, really good.

So, if I post about an anime, and if I say that I like it, then it's good?

...what am I, Roger Ebert?
