Obligatory TV Tropes link.

Anyone seen this show yet? Most people are describing it as a Neon Genesis Evangelion-style deconstruction of the Magical Girl genre. I'm not sure I'd describe the show as living up to NGE-quality, but I do enjoy it. It's currently on Episdoe 7, airing on Fridays (which means fansubs are up Thursday nights, depending on time zones).

Things start out looking like a traditional Magical Girl anime, up until the sh*t hits the fan in episode 3.

I've never really seen a Magical Girl anime before, much like I had never really watched a Giant Mech anime before I saw NGE. But I'm liking it so far.

I haven't seen episode 7 yet, but I have enjoyed the first six. It's a very new and interesting take on the magical girl genre (which I have seen many examples of), which is why I'm still watching it. It is rather dark, and my anxiety level skyrockets when watching an episode because it's hard to predict what's going to happen next, but it still keeps me coming back, and that says something I think. I won't yet call it my favorite series this season, but the jury's still out on that one.

Oh yeah, I forgot how related it was. Smiley: lol He's definitely my favorite character in any of this season's shows. I KNOW he's got some ulterior motive, I just haven't figured out exactly what it is yet. I think that's what grabs me so much; I'm convinced there's another plot yet to be revealed.

[Almost] My favorite shows this season (you really just can't beat Zombie).

At first, I wasn't too sure about the show. As mentioned, it is a magical girl anime which usually tend to be presented as "cute, flowery, and full of girl power." I really enjoy the alternative look at the world of magical girls (seriously, episode 6 is some ****** up ****). I really like the animation style and character design, even if it looks lazy at times to me. Special mention has to go to Kajiura Yuki, her music helps to really set the mood of the show.

This show has such a strong start, I hope it will continue this way for the rest of its season(s).

And this matters why? It's relevant, I wasn't pretending that I made it, and it's not like 99% of the images people post here didn't come from somewhere else on the internet anyway. Why are you trying to make a big deal about it?

I wanted to be belligerent. I recommend getting over it.

It's totally more offensive that you claim these images came from a website that wasn't 4chan. Or you know, in the case of the first image, the actual anime.

Me too. And I think I get to say that again in an episode or two, if my suspicions (that I have had since episode 1) are correct.

Episode 10 was... interesting.

It was odd (and sad) seeing Madoka die so many times.

A room mate thinks that the Walpurgis will be Homura. It'll be the troll ending, where Homura has to kill herself to prevent Madoka from dying, or something.


Myself, I'm still not sure how it'll end.
Also, awesome usage of spoiler tags Smiley: lol

Your skill with spoiler tags is most impressive.

This episode was fantastic. I've been waiting to find out Homura's backstory and motivation ever since she appeared, and the little things like her revealing that she knew Modoka and her ability to travel through time exponentially increased my curiosity.

I definitely agree with you, it was very sad. I would hate to have to relive the same time over and over again, especially something like that. I have no idea how it's going to end either, but I will say that this episode jumped the show from an 8/10 to a 9/10, and the ending will determine if that goes up to a 10/10. Very powerful stuff. I can't wait for the rest.

This episode confirmed what I've assumed about Homura since episode 5 or 6. Definitely a good one though, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the episodes.

Just watched the first two episodes (and read the first 8 episodes' worth of manga - skip it, the anime is much better and the manga is based off the anime).

***** you guys, this is fun. I've managed to hide myself from spoilers, but I'm calling QB as evil*. I don't trust anything whose mouth doesn't move when it talks. And loving that there's a bunch of flash games dedicated to shooting his plastic grin right off his face.

*This is kinda cheating, as said I've read up to chapter 8 in the manga so I saw his creepy face.
