Puella Magi Madoka Magica is about Teenage girls make a contract with a cute Pokemon and are granted a wish in return for fighting witches for the rest of their lives. Puella Magi Madoka Magica breaks new ground visually with its unique cutup art style. The narrative takes the tropes expected from standard magical girl show and twists them to create something that has the feeling of magical girl but dark, filled with intrigue, and holds the audience in suspense till the last moments. The characters are only slight improvements on the standard tropes, the show getting off to a slow start, and the long scene of expository dialogue are only minor setbacks in what turns out to be an incredible experience. No wonder it’s huge in Japan, do not miss this anime, it’s the best anime this year so far.
