Madoka has a fateful encounter after school with a new exchange student and she is introduced tot he world of Mahou Shoujo and Witches.
Iâ€™ve always loved Mahou Shoujo anime. In fact, I think itâ€™s a topic I have one of my few editorials on somewhere, go read it. However I still didnâ€™t know what to expect from this show other than it was in that genre of Mahou Shoujo. I kind of had some hope that it would be different because Shaft was doing it, as I am in love with them so a combination of two things I love can only turn out awesome, right?
Absolutely right indeed. Dear god did I love the first episode of this show. You see, despite being Mahou Shoujo, which it is indeed, it seems to have a different feel as well. First of the animation is very Shaft like. The weird backdrops to the characters, real life pictures in backgrounds and weird patterns. I mean, just thinking back to Bakemono the surroundings were spot on. However probably because of this my initial reaction to the first episode was â€œWhat the hell is going onâ€ When they showed some of the weird â€œWitch Dimension, it was just soâ€¦trippy I had no idea what was going on. It was definitely far different from other Mahou Shoujo shows while still in fact being a Mahou Shoujo show.
