I feel like the only person who likes the OP more than the ED...

Hmm, it's hard to say for me. I really like the OP, but the ED has a really good atmosphere to it.

I can't really pick one, both are great.

i agree that the atmosphere that the ED has lures a lot into liking the song.

I'm going to join the bandwagon here, the ending sets up this atmosphere that gets me to like alot, but the opening is great (especially from ClariS) so really hard for me to choose.

Ok, now tell that to everyone in the canta-per-me website that still waits for unreleased tracks from Madlax, Tsubasa and even Xenosaga ~ A Missing Year.

About the ed X op discussion, although I did like the op surprisingly enough, I love the ending, being the Kalafina fag I am.

I only like the OP more because the ED animation freaks me out. >.<

Doesn't take away the fact that Magia is a pretty good song, especially when coupled with battle scenes.

I like the ED better. The atmosphere it brings is just amazing, and I feel that it signifies a gradual descent into darkness that contrasts with the happy feeling of the opening.

Don't worry, you're not alone! x3

God, I wish I could find a longer version of both, though. >>

I just pre-ordered the ED, can't wait untill 2/16! It's definately in my top 5, not only is the song outstanding, but I never get tired of the video, it's so compelling and creative.

ED>OP here. OP doesn't really click for me, and came across as pretty generic.

You know what would be awesome?

If in the future episodes they completely removes the OP, or even move Magia to the beginning of the episode

Alternatively, do a haunting remix of the OP (maybe by Kajiura?) instead of the normal version. Just a subtle difference can change a lot in term of the tone

Personally I also like the ED more. I just like slow gothic music more than fast paced ones.

OP is leaked. (Don't ask me where I got it >.>)

Wow. Just wow. I love ClariS for making irony, but I love this 100x more! It's totally suits everything. Hope in despair. Even if I don't trully understand the lyrics, I can really feel the song unlike any other. One of the best OP songs this season. REALLY!

I just noticed something interesting. The very beginning part of Magia ("yeee-hee-hee-heee hee-hee") sounds exactly like a certain part of a track from Mai-HiME OST 2, as far as melody is concerned. It's track #29 ("Shinkou ni Shimaru Yoru no Yume") at 0:53.

Can anyone confirm that it's not just my imagination?

As for why i'm listening to Mai-HiME OST, it's because i'm pretending it's Madoka Magica OST.

The two parts you mentioned are pretty short and you only have so many notes available, so it's nothing special that they sound a bit similar.
It's not the same melody though and they're not even the same notes/in the same key.

And Kajiura is obviously not known for great variation in her soundtracks, so you're bound to find some similarities.
But she's still really great! I love what she does with the three chords g,F and E♭ in Eri's song.
