She has retired as a vocalist. She still keeps to jot down lyrics for different singers (Toaru no Majutsu no Index III OP's lyric is with the aid of her, if you failed to realize.)

I am decently excited for this, i can't say that LidenFilms can make the best animation but i hope for the best in this case. However i am a bit concered the director Yamamoto, Hideyo after his previous so called works with the strike the blood series but despite this i am hoping ofcaurse for the best for the adaptation of Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka

Hello, did you read Asuka manga? Because I did (at least those 14 translated chapters) and as a Madoka fan, I really don´t see much similarities between Asuka and Madoka... so why do you call it "rip-off"?


The fact that I need to see something to know whether it is madoka rip-off or not is very irrelevant. Madoka Magica had transverse the medium towards its majestic symbolism that every Madoka Magica rip-off will forever follow. Character differences between Madoka should means it is different? No, it's paradoxically alike for it attempts to deconstruct Madoka Magica yet failed to allure even the tiniest detail of symbolism a frame Madoka Magica reveals to the viewers. That's why Madoka Magica rip-off will never have its name; but just be called as Madoka Magica rip-off as long as Madoka Magica transverse its literacy to the medium.






Okay, I get what you mean, somehow.. I must admit that since Madoka, no other mahou shoujo did take her No.1 place in my ratings (I have high hopes for MagiReco, though). As for Asuka.. I will state my opinion after I will finish watching this series. The only thing I was writing about was that I am open to another mahou shoujo anime besides Madoka, and you´re probably not. I respect that and I think that further conversation between us would be probably pointless.

Yuuki Yuuna was a very decent Madoka rip-off, but everything else (Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, Ikusei Keikaku, Mahou Shoujo Site, Mahou Shoujo of the Dead...) was just different levels of tryhard misery porn.

It looked good until the action bit. Seems just too slapped on as a premise. I'm sure someone will like it.

I thought LIDENFILMS was gonna be on the up swing since Hanebado. Welp.

Magical Girl "Spec-Ops"? Well I don't have high expectations for this...

Looks great. This anime look similar to Release the Spyce and Princes Principal. I liked both a lot

I am concerned regarding the production. Even in this PV there are to many static frames.
