I totally felt the evil aura from kyubbey. I didn't like him from the beginning.. But i never thought somebody was going to get their head chop off in episode 3.... that left me with my mouth wide open =S

It's such a dark show.

Urobuchi, I put on a hat just so I could tip it for you. Episode 10 was godtier, and I can not wait for 11 and 12. Please don't disappoint... Who am I kidding, each episode was better then the last. Although... what's after perfection?


madoka magica?

Why should he apologize? He's a god among men.

Why should he apologizing for making the best show of the season and completely changing the way we see mahou shojo animes?


I completely agree, it's by far the best show of the season.

In all honesty, the mahou shoujo genre needed to be spiced up a bit. And then Madoka entered, and all was good with the world


I second all of this completely, I didn't expect much from the show but had a friend recommend it to me by saying "Never judge a book by it's cover" and well she was right. Madoka takes the mahou shoujo genre and not only redifines it but makes it intriguing and exciting to the viewer. Best show of the season by far, topped what I thought was best show of season, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka.

Well, if you have to troll someone, you might as well go all out and put out more stuff like Madoka. It's not everyday that you can create something with a potential to cause extreme psychological scarring to the characters that's on par with shows like Evangelion.

It's an amazing show.

Well, yeah personally I won't accept his apology because there' nothing to be sorry for.
I read war stories and listens to tragedy, and upon experiencing something as despicable and airheaded as magical girls, I had sworn I'd never touch something of the likes. Ever.

But this one's brilliant.

Ahh so they deliberately planned to troll all the little kids who believed they were watching a happy magic girl anime. I see I see. At least he's coming out and apologizing (while probably laughing on the inside).

Little kids watching an R+ show that late at night deserve to be scarred for their stupidity anyways.

I might start watching this now I guess. Didn't interest me in the beginning.
