Anime did a much better job conveying the subtle creepy tone and atmosphere.
Note to self: Don't make a contract to become a magical girl with a fluffy cute creature unless I want to keep my soul.
This series, when the first information hit the web in December, really fired up both fans and critics of Studio Shaft (the studio responsible for the TV anime).
People were pretty evenly divided, since Shaft now has their own individual signature animation style, and everyone was wondering if this was just going to turn into another typical Shaftstyle show.
I myself was wondering the same.
I love Shaft, though they aren’t my favourite studio out there.
Of course I had to give the show a try, and I loved it from the first episode onward.
And then out came the manga, and my lo Don't be fooled by the cover Kyubey you dirty liar.
Yen Press/Orbit/Hachette did an absolutely fabulous job with this translation.
I'm really happy with itand hopefully now they'll pick up the rest of the Madoka manga (and its spinoffs) for US publication, too!
This starts off as a fairly standard magical girl manga, with some really nice art.
But by the last chapter, it becomes clear that this isn't going to be a typical series.
It starts in a pretty standard way, with schoolgirls Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki getting the call to become magical girls and fight witches.
They're guided by Mami, a more experienced magical girl, and Kyubey, an adorable, talking, magical critter.
So far, quite normal, and it's only the art style that would make the series stand out.
When the girls fight the witches, they enter into surreal, beautiful, creepy landscapes that are unlike anything I can remember seeing in the genre.
The last chapter throws quite a curveball, though it still leaves a ton of unanswered questions.
This is the part where I really started to take notice.
I don't know where this is going, but this is clearly not an average m É 魔法少女まどか☆マギカ, 1 ☆ Before I get on with reviewing this, I have to admit that I had a little trouble finding this series by volume since it goes by a plethora of different names.
Wikipedia told me it was chapters 1 through to 4 that make up the first volume, so I went with that.
Apologies if I made a mistake.
On with the show!
Now this one was recommended to me by Vanessa, who has recommended two other tiles to me so far.
The first was Black Butler, which was so frivolous and disappointing that I actually fell asleep reading it.
The second was Monster, which is already one of my favourite manga of all time.
So far, then, the score is 1:1.
Let's make that 2:1 in favour of the involuntary 'headdesk'.
No, really, selfinflicted cranial trauma was the only way I could honour my commitment and finish this volume.
I have a coup As my sister is ever so insistent on making a Homura Akemi doll out of paper modeling clay (and I think it's going to turn out awesome!) I was thinking that rewatching the Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime would take too long so I remembered stumbling across the manga on Goodreads and thought to give it a try.
Now taking note that I have seen the anime in its full in March 2013 I will note the differences between the anime and the manga adaptaion so I will be very thorough.
Oh and if you did not guess it already:
Spoilers! Dead Ahead!
Firstly I really like the art style it's a refreshing take of the Madoka Magica universe and it has some really great character renderings.
I personally like Homura and Mamisan's designs very much, I find them to be gorgeous.

Most of the chapters were good until the final one.
Lots of events were happening at once and got confused over which character was who.
