Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica: Magical Girl, Tainted

Currently finished: Episode 7

If you told me two months ago that someone could make an extremely dark and twisted magical girl anime, I'd probably have laughed at your face and said you're crazy. However, as unfeasible as it sounds, such thing do exist, and Madoka Magica is the proof.

At first I didn't think much of it, but the fact this is produced by SHAFT should have rung a bell because SHAFT don't usually make glittering magical girl animes. They almost always try to push something extremely weird or just out right offensive in their products. Just take a look at some of the animes they've produced lately: Bakemonogatari, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Dance in the Vampire Bund, and Maria Holic.

So, with that kind of portfolio, it is not surprise to see what Madoka Magica turned out to be what it is. This truly a piece of work, so good that I'm bumping off the no.3 spot of my season's top five pick and award it to Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.
