I just watched it, and I have to say that it's just AMAZING! The first 25 episodes has given this a great start. Let's see how the second season continues it. I can't wait to see how this series ends. Rightly called the "Game of Thrones" of anime (though I've never seen Game of thrones. I just know that Game of Thrones is pretty famous across the globe. )
It's even being called the anime of the decade. I'll decide only after seeing how the series finishes off. - Kiteretsunu

Not only the best anime of the year, but one of the best anime of all time

I know people keep saying it's a ripoff of Madoka, but it's different! The plot is interesting, the characters are interestingly different, and the fact that one of them is handicapped really makes it awesome for me. Name another anime that has a handicapped magical girl. (Actually, if anyone does, I'll watch it. That's not supposed to be a dare.)
