12 Days of Anime, Day 6: I got 99 problems, but a witch ain’t one

99 problems but a witch aint one

I’ve grown to real­ize that some of my favorite anime/manga are the type of sto­ries that present them­selves as being tied to a par­tic­u­lar genre… and then quick­ly go on to estab­lish them­selves as sub­ver­sions to every trope asso­ci­at­ed with the genre.

That isn’t to say that all shows that fall into this cat­e­go­ry are qual­i­fied to be count­ed in my favorites, but twists and sur­pris­es like that cer­tain­ly help an ani­me stand out.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

A sword is a weapon to kill...

One cross-shaped scar…

[First Day]

Haruhi shapes the world...literally

Two godly novels…

[Sec­ond Day]

Fanime 2012

Three pals at Fanime…

[Third Day]

Elise Lutus is my loli queen, yup yup

Four Apple Gummis…

[Fourth Day]

Jet, you killjoy!

Five Right Stuf deals…

[Fifth Day]

Madoka will unwrap Ultimate Madoka as a selfcest Christmas present

Six grief seeds, and a partridge in a pear tree!

Ah, the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca films! I’ve been wait­ing for these to come out ever since I got around to fin­ish­ing the series ear­li­er this year. I hon­est­ly fell in love with this series after that. Although I believe that the “depth” of the series is rather exag­ger­at­ed by fans, the sto­ry is with­out-a-doubt a sol­id work from Urobuchi.

In the same vein as the Rebuild of Evan­ge­lion films, the first cou­ple of films are sim­ply a retelling of the ani­me series, after that there will be an all-new orig­i­nal sto­ry. Rather than a tetral­o­gy, though, the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca films are planned to be a tril­o­gy… hope­ful­ly that will change though, since I enjoy the series so much that the idea of a fourth film will make me even happier. 

I haven’t seen any of the films yet, but I’m pret­ty damn excit­ed about them. After the third film is released, I hope it’s screened some­where around my area. 


(…i‑if I was a Puel­la Magi, I would have turned into a witch by now. Ugh, bad ideas all around… the despair…)
