Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica, Flip Flappers Recommendations
Both are magical girl anime that are much darker than they initially seem (to a greater extent in Madoka).
Both series appear to be about magical girls with a similar art style for the characters and the potential to get quite dark later on.
If you like magic girl with a twist, then you'll like Madoka Magica.
Both Flip Flappers and Madoka Magica contain magical girl elements from the genre, as well as fantastical animation when it comes to the alternate realities presented in both shows. In Flip Flappers, that world is Pure Illusion; in Madoka, it is the worlds the witches implant in the area.
Madoka and Flip Flappers are both meant for more mature audiences than kids, and they both feature girls soul searching. I'd say give Madoka a try if you liked Flip Flappers, and vice versa.
+Both feature magical girls.
+++Both are animated very well, especially fight scenes.
+Both include possible yuri.
There are MANY similarities.
-The art style is different but the concept of Pure Illusion is like the Labyrinths. They both feature the danger of real world death, and are therefore not entirely illusionary, but equally trippy and often terrifying.
-The magical girls are all trying to get wishes granted (with more success in one show than the other ;))
-They collect something from the labyrinth/illusion (seeds/shards)
Both are about magical girls, recommended for girl (even though i'm a boy...). Got great fighting scene and pretty good animation.
Deconstructions of magical girl anime in vastly different, yet darker ways. Both are masterpieces in visual storytelling and while FF is a lot more lighthearted, both also play with the concept of time, Madoka Magica moreso.
I truly wish Flip Flappers were more popular so it would get recommended to Madoka Magica fans more often. While Flip Flappers might not have the same level of dark themes it uses many serious and realistic themes and focuses a lot on emotions and the general human psyche and it does so beautifully. They are both new age magical girl anime and don’t shy away from harsh reality while still maintaining a fantastical aesthetic. While Flip Flappers isn’t always everyone’s cup of tea because of its heavy use of metaphors and leaving aspects “up to the audience” I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’d encourage
Both anime are a dark twist on the magical girl or mahou shoujo genre with unique and interesting characters
Magical girls with some pog animation.
Both anime are about magical girls. They start off as happy and good, but then later on it gets more interesting and dramatic.
