Top 10 Reasons to Hate Puella Magi Madoka MagicaI HATE THIS SHOW!!!!! Since the other list wasn't enough, here's its SEQUEL!!!!!!!!
The Top Ten
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
It's not overrated it got 2 movies and rebellion it even won an award.
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.
A fidget spinner is more useful than all the characters combined - Discord1
That all depends on the person but the only likable characters are Madoka Homura (Not really because she did everything wrong! ) but she is very strong and Kyoko!
If you're 15, you might relate to that. Otherwise it is indeed try too be so emo, it becomes a parody of itself.
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)
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
Yes it is, and you little ass kids that can't take an opinion are what make it true - Discord1
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
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
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
Ehem, it's in Japan...
Like every single other anime
Plus its in japan...so
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
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
I like PMMM, but I must admit I'm not too fond of the whole cutesy facade thing. I've heard stories of parents who showed the series to their young children, only to by utterly shocked and disturbed when Episode 3 rolled around. The posters, opening, etc. are all extremely deceptive. I understand that it's supposed to make the dark twists more shocking, but the creators should have thought of the risk that kids would wind up watching it due to the cute appearance.
I don't watch nor play those so I don't know.
In the first place its not even for kids its rated pg 13 for a reason. Kids are way too young to understand the story, I found out about this when I was 9 and I had absolute no idea about what was going on but now I do since I am at the right age.
Say that to the kids that watch South Park and Play Grand Theft Auto - Discord1
I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with that.
Well, Sayaka has more episodes dedicated to her development than Madoka and Homura, so - MLPFan
Untrue. Like I said before, they all shine and Homura and Sayaka shine the most. - Rue
@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
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
Not trying to be an SJW here, but this item is totally sexist. Not every show has to have a male protagonist, you know. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
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
So? You must hate all anime then because you hate PMMM? - Neonco31
What! anime is life! I agree on some reason but not this is just no no no.!
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
Well Madoka in Rebellion didn't cry as much Kyoko wasn't such a rebel and Homura is the most developed in the anime Sayaka went to being so stupid and thinking that being a magical girl is about being fame but in the end she realized why heroes exist Mami is the least interesting and undeveloped in the anime.
I can’t stand Madoka. “I know I’m useless and just a burden, but let me come on this dangerous fight and just watch while you risk your life. Ok? That’s cool right, Sayaka? ” EYE ROLL.
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
ITS RATED PG 13 FOR A REASON YOU DON'T HAVE TO WATCH IT IF ITS TOO VIOLENT!
Dude, this isn't PreCure. Madoka never had toys and was never even targeted for people who still play toys (or are kids) - MLPFan
Voting to comment.
This isn't really a reason to hate it. I mean, there's 3 movies, so... - Absolite
KIDS AREN'T EVEN MEANT TO WATCH THIS! IT'S MEANT FOR TEENS+ NOT FOR LITTLE KIDS WHO STILL WATCH DORA! - MLPFan
Say that to face to of kids who's parents let them play Grand Theft Auto and watch South Park - Discord1
Most of the cast are teenagers.
Well the creator decided to give him red eyes for a more sinister feel and I don't see why that is a problem unless you have a phobia for red and eyes.
Well that depends on the story the writers can make the characters a boy or a girl if you have a problem with that then get out of here!
Two words: Rule. 34. - PerfectImpulseX
And? That happened almost EVERY FLIPPING ANIME IN THE WHOLE FLIPPING WORLD! THEY EVEN DO THAT TO WESTERN CARTOONS!
Basically, no animated series or even games are safe from online perverts making rule 34 fanart or doujins out of them - MLPFan
No, the English dub is pretty good because it doesn't sound like the actors are trying to hard.
I've saw worse (*cough* in generic kids' animes *cough*) - MLPFan
They are not lazy Sayaka's design was meant for her to be a knight Sayaka has swords like a knight does and since Homura doesn't show much emotions her clothes are plain they are designed to fit the characters and are very well thought out.
The only thing tiring is having to deal with people like you other than the fact that its only tiring if you watch the show over and over again or watching all 12 episodes plus the movie in one day.
It disguised itself as a lighthearted slice of life when it was really a dark show! How is that unoriginal? People never saw that coming
Plot holes? What plot holes?
It's cause the things you say are very lame and unreasonable.
Well, at least I do not waste my time crapping all over this list instead of playing with fidget spinners - Discord1
How though? - Rue
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
