Puella Magi Oriko Magica
Volume 1


Yuma Chitose is a young and carefree child, until her parents are abruptly killed by a witch right before her eyes. Left distraught and traumatized at the scene, she is shielded from the same fatal fate by a magical girl named Kyouko Sakura. Having always felt weak, Yuma believes that becoming a magical girl is the only way for her to become stronger. But Kyouko dismisses the daunting idea, encouraging the young girl to live a normal life.

Yuma's curiosity, however, only flourishes when Kyuubey appears before her and tells her that Oriko Mikuni thinks she would make a good magical girl. But who is Oriko? And why has she taken an interest in Yuma? Meanwhile, magical girls are being targeted and killed. Rumor has it that the one hunting them is not a witch, but another magical girl.

Like any fan of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica would be, I was excited when I looked on ANN and found out about the creation of this spin off, and although Oriko's story isn't on the same level as Madoka's, I wasn't disapointed.

Warning: As this is a spin off series, there will be spoilers of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, also refered to as Puella Magi Madoka Magica, in here.

Unfortunetly, the plot is easily the weakest point. Taking place in one of the different time zones. There, instead of witches, Kyouko and Mami are having to fight against a Black Magical Girl, a magical girl who ...

Let me give every reader a brief and detailed warning before you start reading this manga, watch(or read) the parent story first before anything else if you want to know what the fuss is about.

With that said, onwards to the review.

Mahou Shoujo Oriko Magica is a pseudo-prequel/alternative version of the manga Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica which is an adaptation of an anime of the same name (confusing, right?). Before we talk about anything else about the story, let us make a brief and detailed reason why alternative versions tend to be off-putting than our parent story counterparts.

Alternative versions of a story tend to be that ...

Mixed Feelings
Oriko magica is a manga that you should only read if your a fan of Madoka Magica, and even then it's barely worth the read. The manga will only explain who the 3 new characters are, and relies on the readers knowledge of the events in the anime. This is all well and good, however whats below is not.

The first thing you'll probably notice when you read this is the bad art style the characters look often awkwardly drawn in. While it could be a lot worse, it could also be a lot better. While the style isn't as bad as the Meguca scenes ...
