IIRC.. Some of the original novel fans didn't like his experimental art show interpretation of the show

in laymen terms, it was too stylized for them. It's not that I don't understand..
can you imagine Madoka done in Bakemonogatari style?
yeah..
would be weird

Keep in mind that original novel fans will always complain about an adaptation, though.

SHAFT also annoyed some people with the delay of the last episodes..

The truth is that it is impossible to please everyone. Anyway, just be happy and enjoy what one likes. If no like, can always move on to something else .

Umm, from what I know, novel fans are the one who were most satisfied with the show and that was the main reason why it sold a lot.

I've never heard of Urobuchi being despised, he has overwhelming amount fans, due to his deep insight on otaku industry. Shinbo and Shaft however, gets polar opposite views all the time since they united.

Me? Still even in a state of disbelief. Now I know what those folks who watched Eva episode 26 felt like back in 1996.

I guess that means the ending was well received.

I didn't say everyone hated Shaft... I said there was a sizable group of people who do. As Urobuchi joined Shaft, the hatred usually extends to him as well.

I haven't seen the ending (I'm avoiding the episode discussion thread like the plague... waiting for the batch) but this might not necessarily be true. After all, Madoka has always been on the top of the charts. I'm sure quite a few people were going to order it even if the ending sucked.

No, Charlotte's a sucker for cheese, and works as a very good distraction.

I have to say my interest in the magical girl genre has been reignited thanks to this show. I might finally get around to watching Nanoha or Princess Tutu (if that counts) now.

I'm really interested in hearing the opinion of someone who is well versed in magical girl anime or a well know critic on how Madoka stands . I don't just want to passively enjoy the show, I want to understand whether or not it works as a story and why.

All six Blu-rays are on the top of the charts at Amazon. It was expected with all the awesomeness.

In a nutshell, Puella Magi Madoka Magica is to the magical-girl genre as Neon Genesis Evangelion is to the mecha genre. To put it bluntly, it's a massive Deconstruction. If you liked Madoka a great deal, there's a chance you'll tear your hair out in frustration at trying to watch a bog-standard magical-girl show, like one of the Precures or Mermaid Melody.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha is wildly different--it's not a deconstruction at all. It's a genre-blender, taking some of the more aesthetic and obvious trappings of the magical-girl genre and playing them more like a Super Robot series. This works surprisingly well.

Princess Tutu has more in common with Madoka than Nanoha does. It's one of those mindfuck animes of the same nature (and has a bittersweet ending like Madoka does, though not on quite such a grand scale).

Small perhaps, but considerably a significant rating.

The fact that its an anime series and a late night anime at that is incredible.

Say anything you like but it was Princess Tutu that initially deconstructed the genre. Madoka simply had a lot more hype about it. And seriously, as much as it claims to deconstruct the Sailor Moon formula, it is still the exact same story as there. Thus in a way, Tutu is even MORE revolutionary. But ok, I do place it in my top 5 mahou shojo of all times. Here it is.

1) Princess Tutu
2) Sailor Moon
3) Madoka
4) Nanoha
5) CC Sakura

And in case you wonder why I consider Sailor Moon better, it is because I like my shows to last a few episodes more to get to know the characters and not to constantly trying to shock me with deaths and ressurections. I got Dragonball Z for that.

There dark as in, "oh my god, my enemies are really out to kill me, this is serious!" and then there's Madoka's "oh my god, the seemingly cute creature that granted me these powers is my real enemy and I'm doomed to become the very monsters I've been fighting." I don't think that's been done before.

Or the fact the magical girl doesn't become a magical girl until the last episode.

Take a look at this:

I love the irony of seeing that ad accompanying that pic. Who's the world's last hope?
