Puella Magi Madoka Magica - First impressions

When I started to watch this first episode, I didn't remember that this anime is produced by Shaft. But only, see the first frame, I remembered it. That weird scenery... But well, that was in a dream, and didn't go to far with the weirdness in these first scenes.

The following went well until when was near the end of the episode, when Madoka saves Kyubey. In that moment, Shaft's weirdness appear more than was showed before...

That's which don't like me of this episode, Shaft is being Shaft... Almost all the episode is good and a little of Shaft's weirdness isn't bad, but what happens in that scene is too much.

For the rest of the episode, I liked. Remembers Sakura and Nanoha, two magical girl anime that I liked. Hope that in the rest of the episodes won't be too much Shaft weird paranoias and will be a good anime.


  1. All I can say is: FINALLY! I've been waiting for a good magical girl anime for ages. Looks like Shaft might take a Mahou Shoujo anime and aim it to adults instead of little girls. I can't wait to see what it'll turn out to be.

    All Shaft's weirdness is welcome, but, I was greatly surprised it wasn't as weird as some of Bakemonogatari scenes or Zetsubou Sensei.

    To sum up, the anime looks promising and not as bizarre as I thought it would be. It sort of reminded me of Revolutionary Girl Utena: weird scenarios, tall buildings, and cute girls. Too bad J.C.Staff could not keep it up and now Shaft has to do the innovating part.

  2. I didn't hope this level of weirdness. I was hoping something more similar to Hidamari Sketch. I didn't watch Zetsubou Sensei and just last week I started to watch Bakemonogatari so I didn't know the weirdness level that Shaft is able to reach XD

    Well, let's see how is the next episode.
