    Thanks,it's interesting though because I always feel like I'm sugarcoating and trying to avoid really giving opinions

    Well , mods say they want us to drop the subject so I'll just say it here , I'm completely with you on the wixoss/madoka comparison, I get that there's been other grimdark shows involving girls before and after madoka but this isn't about that, it's about the "wish theme" being so central to the premise, I'm surprised so many people disagree.
    Though the show it reminded me most of is "C".

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds the rhetoric frustrating but I honestly wonder if I should have left that point out. The key point I was trying to drive home was that I think the hostility western otaku sometimes express towards expanding anime's horizons are strongly influenced by their rivalry with other western fans and the insecurities that result from that, and that I think given that Japanese otaku may not be subject to similar psychological factors, we probably shouldn't be asserting they're hostile towards one anime targeting westerns without some solid evidence. I feel like trying to muster my personal experience as evidence just made things messy.

    I don't remember having any problems with Refrain's ending tone wise, but for me it fall's victim to the same problem I have with most Key stuff - the way the supernatural elements in the story function always seems somewhat contrived in a way that bugs me a lot more than, say, the underwater physics or lack thereof in NnA. Or the physics in Steins;Gate for that matter.

    (BTW, I do sometimes wonder if Steins;Gate's writers were familiar with an older VN I've played. If so I'm fine with it, as I don't feel they "ripped off" the VN in question - but if they didn't borrow some elements from it, there are some big coincidences.)

    Spoiler for Nagi no Asukara episode 26, plus some Key stuff:


    I'm also going to express what is probably going to be a very, very unpopular point of view on this show among our close peers on this board: that I like the show far more because of the increased focus on Chisaki and Tsumugu in the second half.

    Hikari is a well written protagonist, but he's not really a character who I can get behind - he's too brash and bull-headed for my tastes. Whereas I don't dislike Hikari, I genuinely like Chisaki (who unlike some posters, I'm pretty sympathetic towards) and Tsumugu. Among other things, I find them quieter and more mature than most of the cast. Hence I cared a lot more about the outcome of the show in its second half than its first, which made it more enjoyable to watch.

    (I'm actually reminded of how I like Satsuki more than Ryouko in Kill la Kill and how that cause me to take a fair greater interest in the later episodes than the earlier ones.)

    I just finished watching the third Madoka Magica movie and it was one hell of a ride. I even posted a huge wall of text in the thread to sort out my feelings.

    I'm betting that you really approved of Sayaka's role in the movie.

    Not necessarily. You have one girl supporting the relationship of the guy she secretly likes, hiding her feelings and the pain of rejection so that the two people she cares about can be happy. Just like Kazusa.

    The only real difference is that, in this situation, you have the guy knowing full well who he really loves and being completely honest about it from the start. If Haruki had confessed to Kazusa from the beginning then I think the situation would've somewhat reflected what we see in "A Pilot's Love Song."
