After some incredibly and inarguably persuasive words, I elected to pick Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica up, and it’s pretty good. There’s really only one thing that I want to say and that’s to Madoka, the main character. I will do so in a letter, and maybe a producer of the anime will come across it and deliver it to her by writing it into the script or something.
Dear Madoka Kaname,
In the words of Ronnie from Jersey Shore, “You’re a woman, it’s time to man up.” Yes, it’s a completely contradictory phrase which also touches on the portrayal of men and women in society, but honestly, it applies to you perfectly. Madoka, you are so dumb and hardheaded that I think you should jump off a bridge, because at this point, you have attributed absolutely nothing to this anime other than having a different hair color than everyone else.
Yes, Mami is dead. And sure, if I had seen a friend get her head bitten off and her body mauled by a “witch” who slightly resembles Chain Chomp then I’d probably be a bit shaken up too. But wait a second, aren’t you forgetting something? You could become a Shoujo Magica at any second, and when you do so, you get ANY WISH YOU WANT. Any wish. There were no rules that say you can’t wish for someone to come back to life, were there? I didn’t hear anything regarding not being able to bring back the dead. In fact, the only time I heard anything remotely close was when Homura said something along the lines of “that’s as impossible as rising the dead.” But even then she was just using it as an analogy, and it had nothing to do with what one could wish for. So why don’t you just do what every single person has already thought of doing since the very second Mami died? Wish her back to life! Regardless of whether you can or not though, you’re still being a whiny sissy.
But should Mami even be dead in the first place? If what the talking cat thing says is true, then the soul of a person is in the gem that they have. Now, Mami had her head detached from her body, but I’m pretty sure her gem was not in her head, so technically, shouldn’t she have survived? At least until she got mauled by the witch thing? Eh, whatever. I knew she was going to die right when she started getting happy that Madoka was going to become a Magical Girl and be her friend. “Hey Madoka look at me! I’m fighting so awesomely take a picture I’M DEAD!” Hahaha WHAT AN IDIOT!
And what the fuck? She dies and you just give up being a Magical Girl? You seemed pretty fucking ready to do it earlier. If you ask me, not becoming a Magical Girl after Mami “died” is an insult to her memory. You really are useless.
Here’s my real problem with you, Madoka. You’re a huge pussy. Aren’t you the main character? Isn’t this supposed to be about a show where you are a super strong Magical Girl? It’s already been 6 episodes, and all I’ve seen you do so far is cry. According to the talking cat thing you’re apparently ridiculously strong, so you really don’t have anything to fear. From what it sounds like, you’re pretty much invincible. As long as you steer clear of any Dead Zones, you’re all set. Plus you get a wish!? WHAT’S THERE TO THINK ABOUT!? GOD YOU’RE STUPID. Are you going to wait until the last episode of the show to become a Magical Girl? What the fuck is wrong with you!? Everything you do is just SAD. You remind me of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, except that you’re an anime girl with stupid pink hair. Even when you smile you look like you’re about to cry. For the record, everyone hates Eeyore because he’s such a downer. He’s also a drunk.

P.S. This show is like…..the first magical girl show I’ve ever watched, because the genre is seems stupid, but it’s actually good because it has shit like death and suicide and girl’s giving head (only in Mami’s case, and in a literal sense).
I had the best dream ever regarding Avatar: The Last Airbender (series). I felt as though the series had continued, and the best part is, it was about 15 episodes in length (my dream….it was really really long). I feel like I got to see an exclusive 2nd season! All I remember about it was that Zuko was a full on bad guy, and Katara betrayed Aang to side with him, although it was against her will. She joined back up with Aang like a second later though, and he ignored her. Wait….I wasn’t even in this dream, except when I went skiing at my Dream Ski Mountain, which is the same mountain I ski at in every dream. I could probably draw a map of the trails at this point. Holy shit my dreams kick so much ass. I just realized that I’ve created my own personal world in my dreams and that certain parts never change. It’s literally my world. Dreams really blow my fucking mind when I start thinking about it.
