After a daring escape from the Memory Museum, Sayaka Miki returns to Mitakihara City with unsettling news. Troubled by what she has learned, Sayaka reveals to Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi the whereabouts of Mami Tomoe—but more importantly—the disturbing truth behind the existence of magical girls. Despite knowing the cruel fate that awaits them, the three quickly resolve to work together and save Mami once and for all.

Meanwhile in Kamihama City, Yachiyo Nanami hunts various "rumors" in search of Hotel Fendt Hope, the headquarters for the Wings of Magius. The magical girl organization is Yachiyo's only lead in finding Iroha Tamaki, whose disappearance remains shrouded in uncertainty. Determined to reunite Team Mikazuki Villa, Yachiyo swears to destroy the Wings of Magius and put a stop to their insidious plans.

Amid the turbulent situations, a calamitous threat approaches, presenting a dire conflict set to jeopardize the entire world.

MagiReco was one of my favourite shows of 2020, so when I heard we were getting another season I was ecstatic. While I enjoyed the show a lot, it was undeniably lacking in some areas. Mainly in pacing and animation. The second season has rectified all of those issues and deviated substantially from the game’s story, for the better in my opinion.

MagiReco season 1 heavily followed the game’s storyline, at times to the detriment of the anime. It’s rare that games perfectly translate to anime adaptations, so it presented some issues with pacing at times. For this season, SHAFT decided to do their own thing ...

Mixed Feelings

What? What the heck happened, Shaft? You were so close... and yet you stumbled at the last stepping stone. Was it management? Budgeting? Production?

What the hell happened?

I suppose I should start at the beginning, then.

PMMM was amazing, nigh on one of the best, if not *the* best mahou shoujo shows of all time. Rebellion built onto that, and, uh... let's just say that a rebellion doesn't even give the events of the movie justice.

And I liked Magia Record S1. I never played the game (I'm not into gacha hell...), so when I heard that a PMMM spin-off was getting an anime, I was rather excited; ...

If you thought the pacing in Season 1 was bad, wait until you get a load of this garbage.

Magia Record Season 2 is...incomprehensibly awful. I’m glad that some viewers were able to enjoy this season, but I absolutely did not.

Nearly the entire second half of the mobile game’s story is condensed into these 8 episodes. It’s a complete frankenstein of a narrative, especially when taking into account the anime-original plotlines. Season 2 presents such a freakish amalgamation of plot threads and character arcs that it best serves as an example of how not to adapt a story.

Since so much is being squeezed into these ...
