Just the start of my summer break and I had the time to browse on the winter animes that I missed because of school work. One show really caught my interest and now I’m very hooked on it. The anime is “Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica/Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
At first, it seems like it’s a rip-off of Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha because the first part of the anime has a dream sequence and there’s an animal that is injured and saved by the main character, Madoka. But in the following episodes, It veers off the normal mahou shoujo genre and the anime shows off its own personality. The creator, Gen Urobuchi is very known for his “dark” twist on anime and that shows off in the later part of the anime.
Because of the earthquake that happened last March 11, 2011 on Japan, Madoka Magica is suspended for unknown amount of time but the producers said that it will continue this April 2011.
