'Puella Magi Madoka Magica' is a brilliant show and definitely ranks amongst my five favourite anime series. The series is often compared to 'Neon Genesis Evangelion' and it is a rather apt comparison, and like that series it is something of a love it or hate it type of show. This series is a little difficult to talk about without spoiling at least some part of the story so anyone who wishes to avoid spoilers probably shouldn't read any reviews.
'Madoka Magica' is somewhat darker in tone than is usual for a Magic Girl series (as you would expect from a show that includes 'Faust' amongst its inspirations) but it is done extremely well with a good build up, as well as a nice and emotional finale. The animation of the series is very good with a great mixture of animation styles, especially when the characters enter a Witches Labyrinth where it can get a little trippy. The soundtrack used in the series is also extremely good. The series uses a number of the usual Magic Girl clichés but tends to twist some of them in different ways.
I have seen this series in both Japanese and English now, and I must say that they are both reasonably good even if the English one takes a little getting used to after watching and enjoying it in Japanese. The voice actors for the English dub are generally good and they all suit their characters well, although I will admit that I was originally a little disappointed by Cassandra Morris as Kyubey but I soon got used to it and now think she did a great job.
If I had a criticism of the show it would be the usual one for twelve episode series, namely that there probably isn't much time to develop some of the characters. While this is true, the series does its best and there are some nicely done character moments for the main characters even if some of the secondary characters get a little side-lined.
'Puella Magi Madoka Magica' is arguably one of the most popular anime series of the last few years and I feel that it certainly deserves this popularity. The series is definitely a must see for any anime fan and one that is worth nothing less than five stars.
The anime is visually stunning, both the Japanese & English audio (both available as options on the blu-ray) and voice acting are excellent, with crisp and vibrant animation.
Highly recommend for newcomers and long time fans.
Now this series is in no ways bad, I enjoyed it but hype was not the only thing.
I'm writing this review in the perspective of a person who knew spoilers before seeing it because the fans were everywhere raving on about and spoilers were everywhere, I know this review is needed as many do know major spoilers yet haven't seen it.
The biggest part about this series was the twists and if you know some of them, it will definitely hinder your experience watching this show.
Overall, the show was good but it would have been better if I went in blind about it. Also, as most people know, the show does make a big twist in tone early on in episode 3, that's all I can say.
The release has to be the best so far. Every country in the world who has Madoka, has it in volumes, now those volumes do come with some cool stuff but if you just want the show in a nice, sturdy sleeve, this is the best release for you, and it is limited so if you want it before it's in a volume release, I would reccommend you buy it soon.
The main reason I bought this particular set is because it is a great deal cheaper than all previous releases of this series since it only costs just under £30 whereas getting a hold of the Aniplex release would set you back well over £100 if you decided to import it.
This Blu-Ray set has all 12 episodes spread across three Blu-Ray discs which are in one standard box and stored in a rather nice glossy slipcase.
The visual quality is excellent on this set and there is a very noticeable difference in quality between the DVD and the Blu-Ray.
There are not any special features included but since the version that has special features costs around 5x the price of this set I will forgive it.
All in all this set is very reasonably priced(It really is)and despite a lack of special features I will give it a 4/5 simply for being a UK release of Madoka.
Just a heads up for any US customers planning on importing this. It is locked to region B so make sure you have the correct hardware before trying to import yourself a cheap Madoka set.
