Top Ten Reasons to Love Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Madoka Magica is a very good anime and pretty much became one of the best animes from Winter 2011. In fact, one of the best magic animes (in my opinion). It sounds like a stereotypical girly mahou shoujo and you might first think "This is going to be girly like Precure...Can't believe why even boys like this" especially due to the cute and bright designs. However, once you reached episode 3, you might be taken on a ride. But don't forget to have a box of tissues with you from episode 10 to 12. However, please remember, the list, especially the comments may contain spoilers because despite this show being an older one, some of you may haven't seen It/haven't entered the dark side. You have been warned! Other than that, let's embrace and remember how did we enjoyed It.

The Top Ten

1 It's not only about friendship or love

Madoka Magica isn't only about friends or romance. We also saw despair, hope, insanity, depression, trauma, frustration, etc - MLPFan

It's about sacrifice and giving up things to see your loved ones happy. - TwilightKitsune

Yes,it's indeed a good anime. Moreover,this anime is not one of those typical magical girls anime,it's so much deeper and you can say it's even darker. - Tia-Harribel

2 Features a dark magical girl

I've never seen this show, but now I think it will be awesome. - TwilightKitsune

The first two episodes are cute, But on episode 3, The whole thing will start - MLPFan

I might be reading the manga of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica on the Internet.-Vestalis

Bet Sailor Moon can't beat that! I loved Homura! She's my favorite Puella Magi Madoka Magica character! I also loved Madoka, Sayaka, Kyoko, and Mami as well! By the way, nice list, MLPFan. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Actually Sailor Moon has a few dark magical girls including:Sailor Saturn(and her dark form),
Sailor Galaxia and even Sailor Chibi Moon's dark form Black lady.
Plus the Madoka philosophy of endless suffering was used alwost 20 years ago in the Sailor Moon manga so stop bashing on other magical girl shows if you clearly haven't seen them.And the death of Mami Tomoe is a reference to the death of Sailor Mars!

I've saw the whole ORIGINAL JAPANESE VERSION of Sailor moon as a child. I'm not comparing both shows - MLPFan

Magia is the BEST MAGICAL GIRL ANIME ENDING THEME EVER. Most of the magical girl ending just sound so plain, but Magia is just my favorite. I think Madoka Magica is my favorite magical girl series.-Vestalis

4 Sayaka's realistic personality and struggles

She's my favourite character! Her suffering was realistic. She played out the usual "sidekick always suffers" thing, But still. Sayaka is irreplaceable. She showed the dark side of the magical girl world - MLPFan

She suffered so much, I felt so sad to see her in such a state. - TwilightKitsune

10 The villains are worth fighting

Most witches are very powerful and constantly beats,stabs, and even decapitates the magical girls - MLPFan

The Contenders

11 Madoka and Homura's friendship

I never expected that out of all the girls Madoka met, Homura would actually be the one closest to her. I mean, wow! Her tragic backstory of how she was initially weak and kept going back in time in order to be the one to protect her friend Madoka was such an engaging plot twist! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 It's overly gory
13 It's so much darker than you first expect
