9/10 - Only because the labyrinth scenes have a low framerate!

9/10.
High enough to have me check out the next episode , not really a fan of having it be so fastpace . They should of gave us more information about the characters before we jump into the magical girl duties.

Did I just watch an anime, or was that an acid flashback?

Same here.
Backgrounds are very well done, but I don't like the pancake faces of the characters
No real complaints otherwise.

I can understand that after 1 episode but I doubt you could say it's generic after watching episode 3,though you could still find it boring

When I watched episode 1, I personally didn't think that this show was generic at all. The story might look exactly like classic Mahou Shoujo. But the foreshadow in the opening scene, the witch dimension and the music (not OP) made me believe that there was something different in this show.

9/10 Wasn't planning on this series before the season started, but I thought I would find out for myself if this series was good or not.
Very nice with the background, the monsters and the action sequence. The buzz got me interested, looks like the series will keep me interested.

Let's see what you'll say after you watched the third episode

Graphing the number of responses to each "Episode N Discussion / Poll" is rather interesting. I was hooked from episode 1, but like many others, didn't really feel compelled to type until later.

@Joachim. I'm not sure specifically what you are referring to, but I understand that ep. 1 has text quotes from Goethe's Faust about selling one's soul to the devil.

@TooPurePureBoy. I was a bit dismayed by the seeming overuse of surrealism, initially (considering that in all other anime I have seen with surrealism / trippy art, it actively detracted from the show), but it's actually quite effective in Madoka.

Nah, Joachim was talking about the mustache ball things talking in German when they surrounded Madoka/Sayaka. "They are roses unknown to me." "Let us offer them to our queen." Stuff like that. Check out the Puella Magi wiki for more.

Anyway, the actual reason episode 1's responses are so low is 'cause episode 1 aired before Madoka got its own subforum. Quite a lot of discussion/impressions on the first episode can be found over in the 'General' Madoka thread.

Well...better late then never I say. So heres a newb's two cents on this episode.

To me, the first half of the episode wasn't all that spectaular...typical cutesy magical girl setup dripping with lolipops and "tee hee boys" Not bad, but nothing special or epic.

....and then the animation crew took a smack of acid and suddenly girls are accosted by men with hand signs, prop art and....cotten ball's with mustaches on butterf.......*head implodes*

....Ok....definatly watching this anime.

9/10 ^^

I'd definatly apreciate impressions after each episode,it's kind of of fun watching the reactions of someone marathoning this.

I just finished watching the first episode! What can I say about it? Well, cotton balls with empty eye sockets, mustaches, and teeth are actually very creepy! I never thought I would say that, but it brings my distaste for cotton balls to a whole new level! Indeed, I will never be able to look at a cotton ball the same way ever again! I thought the first scene was extremely beautiful if not a little dark, and all the characters seem pretty cool while we're at it.

Homura seems like a bitch though, to be completely honest. I gave this episode a 10/10 because it was a refreshing departure from what I usually watch.
