Watch them troll us and make it look like a darker mahou shoujo then all of a sudden it turns into a fluffy "friendship conquers all!" one in episode three and then everything just gets happier and fluffier as the animu goes on.

I hope they don't try to do something similar to Madoka.
I mean, I'm expecting an ORIGINAL anime. Don't let me down shaft.

Hahahahahahah.

Shaft is really going outside the box with this one.

Well, if Kajiura is doing the score I'll watch.

Absolutely watching, of course. I honestly don't think they need to try to replicate Madoka. On the other hand, everyone is going to be expecting it. Kind of a tough spot for Shaft, really. If they do what people expect, some will whine "rehash!", and if they make a lighthearted mahou shoujo others will claim "sucks, Madoka was better!".

Or it could just not be mahou shoujo, although it sure seems to have the aesthetic of one, both in title and designs.

Ought to be great regardless. Light or heavy, I don't care, I just want it to be fun.


I think pretty much the same. But I still have the feeling that Shaft might be repeating themselves, trying to copy their own hit without the same impact. I know it's a bad feeling, but it can't be helped.

Anyway, Ill be waiting for more info. Already on my PTW list, too.

Definitely watching. Although I must say the character designs look almost nothing like what Shaft would usually create. Not that it's a bad thing.

Also, why people want so much a new Madoka? Get over it, Madoka's already everywhere and true change would be to see something totally different from Madoka...You know what they say the more things change, the more they stay the same.

I don't know what to think... It's exactly why I was happy when read Shaft's New Original Anime, and suspicious when I seen the chara design.

I sometime have funky grammar, sorry about that. If you can correct some of my post, you would be an angel.

Not impressed. Can't there be some hawt bishounen in it? It's Shaft, it could be possible. I'll add it to my list if I hear good stuff about this.

another "madoka" would be too obvious,
because everyone would expect dark things to occur,
but IMO it will just be your typical mahou shoujo with cutesy overload... :3

Well, why wouldn't they? Precure is very popular among adult otaku audiences, not just young girls, and I would expect this series to be at the very least modestly more serious/mature than Precure simply by virtue of being a late night anime (seems safe to assume it is, from Shaft).
As local Precure fan I would say... if they would make something in the tone of HeartCatch that would be very nice show. Series that is dark but not entirely - this lacked for me in Madoka, they build this grimm universe to finish it, as it finished :3

Still more magical girls is always good news :)

Makes me wonder, would that be worth it for them? There's certainly a ton of light-hearted Madoka fan material floating around, but how many people would seriously want a straightforward mahou shoujo series?

Shows are successful for intangible reasons, so if this were a "straightforward" mahou shoujo anime I don't think that in and of itself would determine most viewers' reactions. It'll instead live or die by how likable the characters are, or how interesting the plot is, or how good the production values are, or some combination of those and other things. They in most cases matter a lot more to fan reception than "originality" per se, which still needs those other elements to deliver whatever promises of novelty the originality has made.


This.

I'll definitely be checking this out. Shaft tends to do some interesting stuff. I like that it's an original anime. With the success of Madoka, I hope Shaft continues to do original anime.

Just because it's Shaft, doesn't mean it'll be anything like Madoka. Unless Gen's directing, which I doubt.

This though Gen was the writer not the director.

I may watch this but only if it's darker than Madoka, the deaths need to be more violent and there needs to be more rape and cannibalism.

This hasn't been added to the database it seems, has it? I'll most likely watch this though. Add in Kajiura Yuki music and I'll definitely watch it.

Shaft + Mahou Shoujo

I would walk through the very fires of hell to watch this.
Question though... is Urobuchi behind this?

Homura cameo = instant 10/10
