Puella Magi Madoka Magica - What is this strange fandom?
For the past two monthes, on every blog I follow, on every news source, all I've seen is people shitting themselves over this Puella Magi Madoka Magica show. On the outside I look at it and see a show I clearly don't want to watch. What with all the bright colors and child-like women. However, soon I am going to delve deep down into the series and watch the shit out of it to see why there is such a fuss.
I don't exactly follow the new anime seasons but when there is something that carries a strange cult following of fans that will gladly die for it, I feel the need to watch. Lucky Star I found interesting because of the unique art and it's otaku nature. Haruhi had a strange interesting flair all it's own. Perhaps I will be surprised by this anime too and brand it's name to my chest.
But UGH, magical girls.
Can my readers provide insight on why this anime is alpha as fuck, or do I just have to go find out?
