    I know what you mean. SSY was a pretty intense experience.

    It looks like she saved it till the end.

    Nah, just kidding. Apparently it's from the manga and it was actually quite clever. Are you watching the show? It's been pretty incredible.

    1)it took zetsuen no tempest 23 episodes but we got some crossdressing, and by a yuuki Kaji character! (it was originally in the manga)

    2) Those angel beats pics,there's some SHAFT worthy stuff in there, now I do understand where people are coming from, but hey the animation director and director photography both weren't from PA anyway all the "real" staff was already working on HSI

    3) Another and Red data girl are both novels

    So I did some digging on the Puella Magi wiki and apparently there's quite a lot of minor changes to scenes between the first movie and TV series, just not the kind of things that are going to be that noticeable if (like me) you last saw the TV series two years ago. There does seem to be a consensus that the movie(s) has some significantly improved backgrounds in some scenes.

    I saw Part II at the same theatre, and as with Part I the screening sold out. No dakimakura this time, but there were more cosplayers including a few I recognized from local cons.

    As for the movie itself:
    -no major cuts from what I can see
    -many minor tweaks, though less changes than in part I (according to the wiki)
    -While I felt that Part I dragged a bit at times just because it never gave the audience a breather like the TV episodes did, Part II's pacing was spot on and I felt the last four episodes benefitted immensely from being consumed in a single 1 hour, 50 minute sitting.

    Though I still do wonder what was up with the dual OPs (both movie and TV OPs were featured).

    Also picked up a 1/8 scale Matsuri Shihou figure from a nearby anime shop - my brother phoned me up to say he'd wanted to get it for me as a birthday present but it wasn't on sale last time he was there, so I should go buy it if it was on sale and he'd pay me back later.

    I'm somewhat amused by the fact my Yuki Nagato as catgirl is still the only figure in my collection that doesn't have a significant amount of pink clothing (the other five: Matsuri Shihou, limited edition Mai Kawasumi in pink version of the Kanon uniform, Nadeko in her iconic outfit from Bakemonogatari 9/10 (the non-swimsuit one…), and Hanekawa and Hitagi in uniform).

    The way Taichi's friends react when he accidentally broadcasts that his little sister kissed him.

    Unforunately the "in theatres" part is probably the best thing about the first Madoka movie - it's a good adaptation despite my quibbles, just one that doesn't offer a whole lot to people who have already seen the TV series because it's so similar overall.

    Well, I don't think 7 is a bad show. It's just a fun, mediocre one. Its potential for greatness is squandered by its length; it drags a lot and repeats itself too much. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to waste patience. However, there are quite a few awesome songs that are worth listening to whether you plan to watch it or not.

    And never mind Macross 7. Get off your proverbial butt and watch Macross Plus already, newbie.

    On a random note, I finished the last 4 episodes of Kokoro Connect (the DVD only eps)... and holy shit. Definition of forced drama. It was so forced I actually enjoyed it cause I was laughing at it unintentionally.
    Hey, it has arguably the single funniest imouto-based gag ever.


    So I attended Madoka Magica's one night, four theatre stint in Vancouver on the 14th:
    -Our theatre sold out at least 90 minutes prior to showtime, so I'm glad I preordered. My guess is the location my club went to would probably the busiest of the four but it's hard to tell.
    -Two people brought body pillows, neither Madoka related. I suppose the glass half full view is it was only two.
    -Movie was 2 hours, 10 minutes and covered episodes 1-8.

    What I liked:
    -Madoka on the big screen. I got what I came for.
    -Use of surround sound when Madoka is searching for the source of Kyuubey's (telepathic) voice.
    -Minimal cuts: They cut Madoka's deam at the beginning (despite it being referenced later) and Mami's backstory, and I'm wondering if the latter will be merged into Homura's backstory in Part II. Everything else was minor streamlining.
    -Shown with subs, which is not the case at all anime movies I've been too. Aniplex gets it!

    What I didn't like:
    -I recall thinking that there was at least one "lost in translation" moment at a critical moment with the subs, though I can't quite recall what I thought the error was.
    -Pacing: While I'm glad they kept almost everything, it did feel a bit... long-winded? Odd, since the movie itself wasn't that long.
    -The minor changes - ie. Remixes in the soundtrack, etc. None of them were bad, but in many cases the originals feel more "iconic".

    As for the before/after party - food options near the theatre were very limited but the company was great. My girlfriend and many of my anime club buddies were present, I also ran into one of my favourite cosplay models (who sounded like she was losing her voice…) and a Japanese exchange student who liked a lot of the stuff I did (Bakemonogatari, Hanasaku Iroha and Kotoura-san in addition to Madoka).

    I can definatly understand your concerns,I sometimes wonder if I'll get more enjoyement out of watching people rage over the show than the show itself.
    If you're tired of over the top drama,I do have a recommendation:Sengoku Collection episode 18
    No,this isn't a joke,I'm not trying to trick you,I genuinely enjoyed that episode (my sig for the last couple months is from that episode) and it's completely standalone so there's no need to watch any other episodes to understand it.
    The plot might be forced a bit when I stop and think about it but it's the way it's told that makes it memorable.It's extremely restrained,unlike 99% of animes out there and much more like a european arthouse film.
    Worse case scenario I waste half an hour of your time,but I think odds are you'd find it interesting.
