puella magi madoka magica came out in 2011 with rave reviews and with people calling it one of the best anime of all time and other sayings like that. But for me it was a disappointment. First let's say what I like about it. I love the visuals and art mainly, in the witch barrier. Now that's the only thing I loved or liked about everthing else was disappointing. The most disappointing thing was the plot. The plot was unorignal, linear, and lacked great characters. The plot felt like a mix of steins;gate, claymore, and higurashi no naku koro ni. SPOLIERS ALERT THROUGH THE REST OF THE BLOG NOT JUST THIS ANIME BUT ALSO HE OTHERS I JUST MENTIONED. OK let's start with claymore. There are these things called yoma and claymores which are yoma human hyprid beings. They hunt down yoma but they can use yoma power but when they use too much they become a yoma and a claymore is sent out to kill them. Eventually they find out they basically kill yomas and claymores that became yoma much like with the magical girls becoming witches. Next steins;gate the part when the one character goes back in time to save modika a ton of times. This also happens in steins;gate which also happens in higurashi no naku koro ni kai. And there's also the conspiracy part. There's more but I don't want to explain everything that would take too long. People say this has a complex plot but I fond it linear. People also said its dark, twisted, and depressin . Dark? Kinda twisted? No depressing? No. And the ending was predictable oh and the twists were too. Not sure if I should call them twists. In conclusion this anime is very overated.
