Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Kaname Madoka is a normal young girl, with a loving family and great friends. Madoka is happy with her lifestyle. But then she meets Kyubey, a creature who offers her one wish, a miracle of sorts. In exchange, she'll become a magical girl and fight witches. She is hesitant at first, as she doesn't have anything she would want to wish for, she just wants to become a magical girl. So she and her friend Miki Sayaka observe a fellow magical girl, Tomoe Mami, the gun slinging senpai. As Madoka meets various other magical girls, and becomes more involved in their world, she soon discovers that the life of a magical girl is one full of tragedy, and one destined to end in sorrow. Puella Magi Madoka Magica was the show that really broke through the magical girl barrier. Typically magical girls are beautiful, sweet, innocent. MG based anime a designed to be aimed towards young girls. But PMMM puts an incredibly dark twist on a formerly pure genre, shocking the public. The creators of PMMM were aiming to surprise viewers, and they most definitely did. They made the opening, the font, as well as their advertisements seem very childish, which threw the public off guard. The plot is one of the best I've seen, and the characters are incredibly well made. The art is all very aesthetic and eye pleasing, the witch designs contrast so much to the normal animation. The series ends on somewhat of a cliff hanger, as well as the companion movie, but they're worth it. There has been another movie confirmed, and we eagerly await the conclusion to this epic series.
