Average Rating

Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are regular middle school girls with regular lives, but all that changes when they encounter Kyuubey, a cat-like magical familiar, and Homura Akemi, the new transfer student. Kyuubey offers them a proposition: he will grant any one of their wishes and in exchange, they will each become a magical girl, gaining enough power to fulfill their dreams. However, Homura Akemi, a magical girl herself, urges them not to accept the offer, stating that everything is not what it seems. A story of hope, despair, and friendship, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica deals with the difficulties of being a magical girl and the price one has to pay to make a dream come true.

Legendary transition from moe to mindfuck.


This show really is a Head above the rest.


When Urobuchi writes a Magical Girl anime. This is the 2nd Eva in terms of deconstruction. Watch the cast have a terrible journey.


The moment magical girls got really dark and just kept spiraling down the path until you question what the show’s true objective was.


My absolute favorite anime!

Everything from the music to the animation to the story itself is incredible.


Magical school girl – The Tragedy


Magical girls cry



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!


    Anime was a mistake
