Mahou shoujo Madoka magica – First thoughtsPosted: May 19, 2011
Yeah, I’m a bit late on this one. I kind of shrugged it off as “just a magical girl anime”, but put it on my backlog anyway just in case. Seeing how much attention it has gotten I felt I had to check it out, and wow! If the rest of the series can match the first episode I think it’ll end up quite high on my personal top-list.
I might have fallen in love with the intro. At the very least it has made sure that I will watch this series to its end. Dark atmosphere, ruined bildings, violins in the soundtrack – no complaints from me^^
I guess that’s some kind of magical realm or field or such. Lots of weird stuff going on. Kind of confusing, but I get the feeling that it’ll mess with my head if I try to analyze it too much.
While Madoka is cute, I’m more interested in Homura. What’s her background, her goal, her motivations? How will her relation to Madoka develop? And…argh, can’t waste anymore time writing, gotta watch the next episode!
