Created for Shaft's 40th anniversary, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica: Concept Movie was a surprise reveal at the 2015 Madogatari event in Tokyo. Featuring the return of the full cast and staff, the short animation presents core concepts for Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica's fourth movie and serves as its trailer. A second short was later screened in Osaka, displaying several changes to imageboard segments.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica: Concept Movie was included on a Blu-ray disk presenting the 2015 Madogatari Exhibition's contents that was commercialized together with the event's catalog during the 2016 Madogatari Exhibition Tokyo Encore.

If you ...

This is a short review for a short anime. There isn't much else to be said. I think it is supposed to be based after Rebellion. Also seeing Madoka in that dress is kind of refreshing. I honestly didn't understand what was going on but it could easily be sumed up as, a giant statue falls from the sky and Sayaka is ...

Yeah, this concept movie was pretty cool and all. It's basically just a trailer for Madoka Magica 4: We Don't Know Yet, but it had a lot of really cool visuals and some cryptic dialogue from all our favorite characters.

Apparently I can't write a short review for a pretty short video, so I have to figure out how to ...
