A girl named Kazumi wakes up to find that she has been kidnapped and stripped of her memories. She is rescued by two girls claiming to be her best friends, Umika Misaki and Kaoru Maki, who take her back to where they live. While getting settled into this unfamiliar place, Kazumi is attacked by a witch and suddenly transforms into a magical girl!

After discovering her powers, her two roommates reveal to Kazumi that they are magical girls as well, the three of them belonging to a group called the Pleiades Saints whose goal is to fight witches. As Kazumi's "new" life begins, things start to get even stranger when bizarre events start to take place around the city.

Mahou Shoujo Kazumi★Magica: The Innocent Malice explores Kazumi's readjustment to a world she has forgotten and the realization that her true enemies are a lot closer to her than she thinks...

Yet I'm also constantly reminded of its predecessor, and questioning what secrets there are to be revealed.

Story: 9. The release of Madoka before Kazumi works to the series' benefit. Where Madoka is dark and foreboding from the very beginning, Kazumi is sort of lighthearted and playful at the beginning. This instantly ...

Preliminary (14/23 eps)
Okay so this is the first time i've done this but I really enjoy this manga so I thought I'd give it a go.

Overal 9 - I think Kazumi gets a lot of stick for having to deal with being a spin off of madoka but personally its different although the same idea, they take it down a different route and its fresh, people seem to think it'll be similar but i'd say its different it helps with the mysterious ways of the magical girls and witches and adds more.

Story 9 - Personally I think that this could be an even darker story to ...

Kazumi Magica is incredibly convoluted. There's a lot of things that take place in the narrative that, at first glance, seem to work. However, looking back at the big picture, there's a lot of stuff that isn't used, used improperly, or used without purpose.

To be brief, all of these issues protrude due to the failure of Kazumi Magica trying to separate itself from the parent work, Madoka Magica.

In detail, these issues arise when the work starts off rather strong, leading towards an interesting and untold development within the unforgiving world of Madoka Magica. However, the further the reader travels into the ...
