Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica 9 and 10: No End In Sight

Literal in two senses! (Since Madoka Magica is cancelled for the month at least) I realized over the past few weeks that episodic blogging is like one of those beasts where it’s impossible to truly do it unless you really don’t say all too much. So I’m going to self-impose a word limit to all […]

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Episodes 7 and 8: Thanks for Playing Urobuchi

Game Over Where have I been? Busy as hell. I more or less dropped out of the online world for the vast majority of the past week and a half. Real life. Sigh. Just as a quick announcement, I’m not going to blog KoreZombie anymore. First off I’m 3 episodes behind, but secondly there’s absolutely […]

The blogosphere literally exploded with really interesting things to say about Madoka after episode 3, which really is no surprise considering just the force of one particular event that happened during the show. And if you haven’t watched Madoka 3 yet, I highly recommend you stop reading, and go […]

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica 2 – When did Mahou Shoujos Become So Dark?

When was the last time a Mahou Shoujo put lines from Faust in it? Where to begin with Madoka 2? A lot happened in this episode, including a lot of character and world development. In my previous post, I focused a lot more on the aesthetics of the show, and more or less dismissed the […]

Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Mahou Shoujo Shinbo Style

Are you ready? Back in our Winter Preview, I declared my unyielding love for this show: KYAAAAAAA SHINBOU MAGICAL GIRL ANIME. I don’t care that it’s kind of like a learning opportunity for up and coming SHAFT director Yukihiro Miyamoto. Character designs by Ume Aoki (Hidamari Sketch writer) = win. Script by the guy who […]
