This is no place for Mahou Shoujo amateurs. Only the most refined, studied, most magical people should participate in this discussion. The topic this time around is simple.
With so many people watching anime by recommendation nowadays, us more experienced viewers run into a few problems. These are associated, usually, by newer folk claiming things that certainly aren't true. Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a show that's sparked a lot of controversy. Newer folks claim it's the best magical girl show of all time because it's edgy and dark, while Mahou Shoujo fanatics everywhere watch these newfolk parading the streets with this flavor of the month.
What's your opinion on Madoka? Does it really present a new theme in the magical girl universe? Or is this, like I said, just the flavor of the month?
My personal beliefs? I'll let you know after a few posts. I will say this though; It certainly hasn't done anything "new".
