It’s back! The Madoka universe has returned in this new show inspired by the popular mobile game and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Just three episodes in, and it’s showing promise. To be honest, it took me a couple of starts to get through the first episode (ADHD running wild in my brain). I loved the great background animations and direction from Shaft, but I was having a hard time engaging with the story. After sitting down with my 16 year old son to watch it, I finally finished the first episode. By the end, you get your hook to engage you further in the story (or at least I did). I am looking forward to see where it will take us.
From a parenting point of view, I have no idea if there will be any offensive themes/ things….my guess is probably not if it follows a similar style/ content of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica, It won’t have fine service, be crude, or violent. However, there may be potentially disturbing moral or ethical themes. Something that would make for an interesting discussion.
Excited it’s back on and super excited to see Shaft’s animation again.
Let me know your thoughts on the show.
Until next time: Happy Viewing!
And it’s got a great OP!
