Puella Magi Madoka Magica is an anime that I thought I wouldn’t watch because the artwork seems very girly and childish. Yet after I read some reviews about this anime, I got interested and watched it. My opinion in short, it is surprisingly awesome and has a dark side that you wouldn’t guess when you are looking at the poster.
The story begins with the introduction of our main character, Madoka Kaname, who maintains a normal happy life with her family and best friend, Sayaka Miki. One day, Madoka and Miki met Kyuubey, a magical creature that offers them to be a magical girl and fight the “witch”, where they will be granted a wish if they would. However, a transfer student named Akemi Homura appears and tries to stop Madoka to be one. After that, their life has changed.
Personally I don’t like the childish type drawing like the one you will see in this anime. However, the artwork of how the witches are pictured is great. At first, I don’t know why MyAnimeList put “psychological” on its genre (and that’s actually the main reason of why I watch this anime), and I think this anime has a side of psychological problem, though it won’t be as complicated as Psycho Pass for example. But the plot twist and everything is great and I was really enjoying every episode until its movie that are completed with great musics.
