"Puella Magi Madoka Magica is not your standard Magical Girl (Mahou Shoujo) series. It takes the elements of a Magical Girl show and then does a complete 180degree spin on it’s tone and direction. The result is a series that may irk some viewers, but has ultimately led it to an incredibly large fanbase. Also Kyubei is awesome." - Capsule Computers
not a bad anime, i might pick this one up
Really? That is very surprising. Although I haven't seen it myself, I've always heard pretty much glowing praise about this series.
