My review

 

Puella Magi Madoka Magica Recommendation Chart

Do you think this anime is like a girl heroes story like sailor moon? As you see the picture of this anime, you thought this show is a children’s anime? The answer is NO.  It looks like it, but the story is not for children! Probably children and their mom’s would drop their face if they think this anime is for them. ━━(゚Д゚;)━━━ The reason why this anime has been popular is a gap. What kind of a gap? (;・∀・) The story and an image of what people would think as they see a picture of the characters. The characters are so cute and people would think Oh this is one of those anime that gives you courage or an ideal of humanity! What kind of image do you have for an anime like this? I am assuming that cute girls make friends through a battle, and they become friends and together they will beat monsters right? Trust me! This anime is totally opposite side of what you think. Σ(゚Д゚;≡;゚д゚). Unfortunately, this anime has a darkness and shows you how your kindness turns around to bite you. Because they will be magical girls for making their wish come true, but their wishes are for somebody. They think about somebody and try to save them. That is how they become magical girls. But that kindness doesn’t go the way they want. The kindness will turn into hatred and then some girls will be ….. I should not say what will happen! In short, they will be magical girls as considering somebody, but that thought won’t go well. This anime is showing us how hard real life is. That is what you will get to see from this anime. As I said that the gap of this anime makes itself so so popular. I do believe so. If you have time to watch this, I want you to try to watch it and realize this anime doesn’t talk about beautiful the side of this world and people. It will make you have goosebumps and chills. You can’t imagine what you will see on this anime! Enjoy the gap of what you thought about this anime as just seeing the picture of it and real story! Welcome to the dark world with cute girls!
