A beautiful, raw, rattling ride focusing on human trauma in a non-pandering way. For about 70% of the way, then has a disappointing finish.
This sequel is more of the same Yuki Yuna fare, making it a somewhat mediocre follow up to what feels like a one-hit wonder.
A decent prequel, has some cries, but they feel a bit shallow/forced. There isn't as much of an emotional dynamic/contrast, but it still has merit, especially the music.
While unapologetically a Madoka-inspired Magical Girl show, it does take its own approach and has a more gradual pace. A slightly warm Cherry Pepsi to Madoka's crisp, icy Vanilla Coke.
While I really liked the premise, I feel the execution fell short on all fronts. Lackluster animation, characters, and dialogue led me to literally fall asleep during the final battles.
Alice in Wonderland meets Evangelion, which then cross with Kill la Kill and Madoka in this gorgeous, magical, and emotional trip with unforgettable moments.
Magia Record takes the world you know from Madoka and shows us how it would be like in a bigger city full of networking Magical Girls. There is a bit of a firehose effect with the number of characters and amount of story here, though.
What began as a passive time-sink grew into a beloved investment. Magia Record's characters, writing, and story have a charm to them unique in the realm of mobile games. Which makes the abrupt end of it that much more painful.
An eerie finish (?) to the Madoka series that keeps the curveballs coming. Inu Curry's unsettling abstract animation is back and Yuki Kajiura's soundtrack is phenomenal, but the story can be tricky to follow.
