They’ve gotten smart, preventing the docking. It’s still defeated later though.

I like Vividread. Every time some convention of previous magical girl series comes up, it subverts with an idiot hero. NO AKANE! IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SECRET.

Another episode of Vividread Operation. I still haven’t decided that it’s cleverly parodying the magical girl genre or playing the magical girl genre straight. All I know is that it is entirely self-aware and post-modern, and thus automatically brilliant. Maybe.

My first new show. I’m going to hold off my review: JUDGEMENT MONOLOGUE until about 3 episodes in. But let me tell you, this crap is good.

Another magical girl named Homura Akemi tries to prevent Madoka from making such a deal, while Kyubey urges Madoka by telling her she will become the most powerful magical girl. However, contrary to the glamorous notions one would expect, a magical girl finds herself dealing with death, isolation, loss of humanity, agony over the value of her wish, and existential crisis. Madoka, following her friends, soon sees the darker side of being a magical girl, and because of knowing the truth about being a magical girl, she questions if she should become one as well.
