So Madoka-esque thing?

I guess I'll watch it.

Well, I thought in Madoka because it has magical girls and dark stuff involved. And, if the series is as dark as the synopsis suggest, then they are following the same plan Shaft did with Madoka's PVs before the series aired (try to pass the series as your average, cute looking magical girl series to then, bam! introduce some twist who will turn the story darker).

Haven't watched Gakkou Gurashi (I know it's about lolis who deals with zombies and much suffering), but I know what you are implying here.

Well, the parallels with Madoka pretty obvious, just now it is a little too popular, I think. But Madoka was more than surreal and psychological than action, so this series seems quite interesting to me.
Yeah, I'm hoping this would get more action than Madoka (even when Madoka's fight scenes were good, the psychological parts were much more prominent).

As for Madoka .. Now the violence and drama in the mahou shoujo titles, has become a new trend ? Although here and say that it is more similar to GakkouGurashi.

Hmmm... I haven't payed too much attention to this series, but after reading the synopsis, it seems interesting. A survival game with magical girls involved? Wonder if this can outedge Madoka.

While the art looks too cutesy to be a dark show, well, one can always have a surprise...

@Snow there's 2 errors
1)
"The novel series has been publishing since June 8, 2012 and released six volumes"
This is incorrect, without even counting the remake of the first volume (who has more chapters/content after the remake) it's still 9 volumes long right now.

魔法少女育成計画(original first volume) / 特別編集版 魔法少女育成計画 (extended remake )
魔法少女育成計画 restart(前)
魔法少女育成計画 restart(後)
魔法少女育成計画 episodes
魔法少女育成計画 limited(前)
魔法少女育成計画 limited(後)
魔法少女育成計画 JOKERS
魔法少女育成計画 ACES
魔法少女育成計画 episodes φ

So 9 if not counting the tokubetsu henshuuban, 10 if counting.

2) " with the most recent one released on September 10, 2015"
The most recent is episodes φ and was released on April 9, 2016.

Trying too hard to look cute and fluffy when the synopsis is all about how these girls are gonna be killing each other.
I know you want to bait and switch but leave some room to switch later.
Would have been better just embracing its premise more and going for a darker tone.

Omg from this preview Fav is going to have a super-annoying voice xD.
I wasn't thinking it would get that kind of high pitched voice so that's a surprise.
I would have also like top speed to be a little more low-pitched as well~.

Another "Gakkou Gurashi" like show by Lerche, sign me the fck u----wait a second, as much as I want to like this but seriously though aside from AssClass, they just suck ass at adaptations with the mix of mediocre shows from previous seasons so I'm way pretty skeptical on this one
