Top 10 Reasons to Hate Puella Magi Madoka Magica

I HATE THIS SHOW!!!!! Since the other list wasn't enough, here's its SEQUEL!!!!!!!!

The Top Ten

1 It's Highly Overrated

Overrated =/= automatically terrible. How many times we have to go over this? - Rue

You are highly hypersensitive just because you can't handle criticism from your previous list that you mentioned.

Some people just never learn, do they? Or in this case, they just can't take criticism. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Dragontree102 if you don't like Puella Magi Then don't watch it. Nobody's forcing you to - Discord1

You must have broke your fingers after typing that you must rest your hands - Discord1

2 It Has Unlikable Characters

The only good one was that blond chick and her death was too confusing and sudden for me to grief for her at all. All Madoka did was cry every god damn episode and did nothing to help her friends, then suddenly out of nowhere we're supposed to believe that she is the most powerful being ever or something and practically a "god" and we're supposed to like the once boring and lacklustre Homura. Every other character (including blue hair and red hair girls) were not noticeable at all and their deaths were supposed to feel emotional and depressing but I felt nothing for them.

3 It's Boring

I know it gets much better later on but even with that inspiration I wasnt able to get through the first couplet of episodes when I had gotten through other anime shows that were boring at first

NO its not

4 It Tries Too Hard to Be Emotional

It doesn't try hard to be emotional. The writers know how to write something emotional without it being forced. Which is basically Madoka Magica. If you want an example of a magical girl anime that tries to hard to be emotional, it's Daybreak Illusion. (Which is actual trash. Not Madoka Magica)

5 Obnoxious Fans

Says the obnoxious hater that is the creator of this list. I'm probably sounding like a prick right now in this comment, but you have to admit that most of the creator's comparison lists (especially the Ojamajo Doremi and Puella Magi Madoka Magica one) are completely asinine and filled with invalid and illogical reasoning. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Lazy Animation
7 It's Meanspirited

Even though I don't like it, it's NEVER mean spirited! - Carsrule300

Define how Madoka Magica is meanspirited - Rue

It's actually supposed to be. But I'm actually alright with the anime now, and that's coming from someone who used to hate Madoka Magica. - SelfDestruct

How then? - Neonco31

8 Lousy Writing

Gen Urobuchi is a great writer and If you call Madoka's writing suck, It means you're also saying that Fate/Zero's writing suck, and Psycho Pass's writing suck and so on. - MLPFan

9 Only Madoka and Homura Shines

Untrue. Like I said before, they all shine and Homura and Sayaka shine the most. - Rue

Well, Sayaka has more episodes dedicated to her development than Madoka and Homura, so - MLPFan

10 It's a Sailor Moon Rip-Off

Also if anyone really believes PMMM rips off Sailor Moon then with that logic every Magical Girl anime who sticks with the typical magical girl formula also rips off Sailor Moon. - Rue

How? It's literally nothing like Sailor Moon. - Rue

But I think it a rip off of sailor moon

Well sayaka look like ami and their are madoka vs sailor moon so much and madoka version of moon pride and all the other song.

The Newcomers

? Lack of Character Development
? It's Extremely Boring

The Contenders

11 It's Forgettable

Forgettable? It's one of the most iconic Magical Girl animes in the modern age. Try again.

Maybe the episodes that are like generic magical girl series, but the second half in my opinion is unforgettable. I'll never forget the episode about Homura's backstory. - Elric-san

Only 2 episodes were like the typical magical girl anime. It started to take it's darker route when Mami dies. - Rue

12 It Has No Black People

Ehem, it's in Japan...

So - Carsrule300

13 It's a Ripoff of Wakfu

@Discord1, besides that point, how is Wakfu remotely similar to Puella Magi Madoka Magica? They're two absolutely different shows from different shows and premises.

Are people idiots? Wakfu was released about a year after the debut of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. This item doesn't make any sense. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Okay... But how are they even similar to each other in terms of premise? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

And how are they alike? - MLPFan

When me an my friend watched wakfu me and my friend ripped our eyea out

14 No Male Protagonist

What kind of reason is this? Especially for a magical girl anime which the genre mainly focuses AROUND GIRLS except for a few like Cardcaptor Sakura. - Rue

Uh...magical girl anime are always centered around girls. And a character isn't defined by gender, they're defined by their traits and qualities. - Elric-san

This is so sexist! - Carsrule300

Seriously if anyone is upset that Madoka Magica has no male protagonists, the Magical Girl genre is not for you. Like the title of the genre, IT'S ABOUT YOUNG GIRLS and their lives involving magic.

Also people should be more focus on the characters themselves, and not their gender. - Rue

15 It's an Anime

What! anime is life! I agree on some reason but not this is just no no no.!

So? You must hate all anime then because you hate PMMM? - Neonco31

16 Too Many Death Scenes

Who cares if there are too many death scenes? - jack2244

17 Too Many Characters Die

That's the point. What do you think this show is? Barney? - MLPFan

To the person who added this item,

Wait until you see Akame Ga Kill. In Madoka, all the magical girls (five of them) died but most of the deaths were off screen. Whereas in AGK, we have a more characters in it and they all will die (except Akame and probably Najenda or however you spell that). And the deaths all happen on screen.

People say that Mami's death was super gruesome, but It's only at the level of Sheele's death (they were both eaten by a monster), It'll never reach the level of Chelsea's death or that girl who Tatsumi sliced half from the first episode.

Both shows are quite good in my opinion, by the way. And I'm not like those raging fankid stereotypes, I'm just stating my opinion with facts onto them - MLPFan

18 It Tricks Kids Into Liking It
19 It Only Exists to Sell Toys

Dude, this isn't PreCure. Madoka never had toys and was never even targeted for people who still play toys (or are kids) - MLPFan

20 It Ended Too Early

Voting to comment.
This isn't really a reason to hate it. I mean, there's 3 movies, so... - Absolite

21 Madoka Has Pink Hair
22 People Make Hentai Out of It

Basically, no animated series or even games are safe from online perverts making rule 34 fanart or doujins out of them - MLPFan

23 Annoying Characters
24 It's Offensive

How though? - Rue

25 Bad Voice Acting

Nope. It had good voice acting and had many great VAs in it.
Eri Kitamura who voiced Ami Kawashima from Toradora, Yui from Angel Beats, Kamiki Izumo from Blue Exorcist and so on
Aoi Yuuki who voiced Krul Tepes from Seraph of the End, Tatsumaki from One Punch man and etc
And many more great VAs - MLPFan

26 It Takes Forever for the Characters to Blink
27 It Has Bad Messages

Okay, let's take a look at the messages Puella Magi Madoka Magica offers.
-Your friends are always there for you.
-If you love someone, let them go.
-Life is short.
Try again. - Absolite
