The first thing that attracted me to Puella Magi Madoka Magica was reviews I had read about the art. They said that it was worth checking out, if only for the amazing futuristic designs of the world and the bizarre, surreal witch labyrinths that the magical girls fight in. By the end of episode three, I was hooked by the story!

While the characters designs take a bit of getting used to, the background art and animation is a hit from the start. I love the classrooms in Madoka's school, the cool house they live in, and everything else. When the witch fighting starts, it gets even better. It is as if the girls are fighting inside a painting by Picasso or Salvador Dali. But the story seemed kind of standard. Magical girls fight witches, some of them don't get along. I figured that it would go through the normal pattern of things and Madoka would join their ranks and teach them how to work as a team to be the best magical girls they could be.

Then came the third episode and the entire world got turned on its ear, twisted, ripped asunder, and shredded into little bits. All of a sudden this was not standard magical girl fare, it was a dark, bizarre, scary world with twists and turns to spare. By the time you figure out one twist, the story is ready to spin another direction and bust your chops again. By the final episode, I wasn't really sure how it could possibly have a "happy" ending, but it manages to be uplifting, optimistic, and heart wrenching all at the same time.

But even before the twists began, I was impressed with one thing in particular, aside from the art: The nature of the witches they fought and the kind of evil those witches wrought.

A girl named Madoka has a dream of a magical girl (think Sailor Moon) being beaten in an epic battle. Later she actually sees that same girl at school. A fanciful cat-like creature runs to Madoka for help, but soon she caught in the middle of a battle involving another magical girl. After she survives, the creature offers her and her friend wishes in exchange for becoming magical girls themselves to battle evil spirits.

The artwork for the characters has a somewhat generically cutesy style that is typical of contemporary anime. The exact meaning of the slang “moe” is a bit too complicated to get into here, but it fits the vast majority of characters here to a tee. However, the scenery is great, and the artwork is beautifully colored all around. The animation is well above average to begin with and becomes spectacular during the magical battles. Speaking of which, the dreamworlds where the magical battles take place, with their really unconventional painting and animations, take on a nightmarish psychedelic and surreal quality.

My, what do I say about the story? If you stick around long enough, it doesn’t take long before you realize that this isn’t a simple Sailor Moon wannabe. Though the characters are somewhat archetypical, they aren’t completely generic, much less cliched or flat. Discussions between characters and internal monologues bring out real emotion and depth. The plot takes some increasingly dark and bizarre turns. As it went on towards the grand finale, I could only say to myself, “What the h—-?” and “Whoa.” It seriously compelled me to stream the entire series; it was just as well that I was left alone for so long.

I'm so happy I can buy this series on amazon because it would be too expensive to purchase the DVD and bluray. I'm going to buy the rest of the series later today. (A total of $30) and that's in HD. That saves me $90! But other than that, this series is great. From what I can tell it's only in English when you buy it from amazon but the dub isn't bad at all.

One of the most impressively original animated series I've seen. They've taken the classic "magical girl with cute familiar" formula and turned it on its head. The girls do not have innate powers, rather they must sign a contract for them. This grants them a wish but also carries a burdensome set of obligations and a steep price for failure. The ensuing storyline has some familiar elements but frequently crosses into dark territory. The writing, animation, and music are above average, and the English dubbing team did an excellent job.
