I agree. It does look official and it's more fanservice-ish than what I'd like for official Madoka artwork in an actual magazine. I guess somebody decided to cave to the panty-obsessed Homura internet meme.

It is Nyantype.

So yeah, assuming this is official art, that would mean someone has been playing close attention to the fanbase.

Really? If so, that's impressive photoshop work.

I should have known it was too good to be true...

So, what does the actual cover look like, then?

Been trying to find this info out for a while now, but when do the blu-rays of the movies come out? And is it only the 3rd movie that adds plot to the TV series?

Thanks!

edit:
The reason I ask is because I thought the blu-ray of the movie already came out in early April, but there has been no release of the movie as of yet? (at least not online?)

The BluRays for the first two movies came out last year, the third movie came out on the 2nd of April in Japan and the 8th of April in the US. Mind you, both Japan and the US got the exact same disc.

I've got a few questions before I check this show out. I've seen it praised quite a bit as being a clever deconstruction so I'm interested.

1. What's the level of fan service like? (My tolerance level is generally that it fast becomes irritating and if it goes inappropriate its a fast track for abandonment)

2. Does it have a conclusion or is it one of those "check the source material" type shows?

3. Does it have the type of tropes the less tolerant of us might find weird? (I know that's a bad question but I hope its clear what I mean).

4. Is the English dub good? (I am happy with subs but prefer dubbed if its of a decent standard)

1. Its standard Magical Girls fare of shiny naked transformations, nothing too much.

2. Its Anime-Original, so the series is conclusive. However, the movie unravel the ending to be open for some sort of continuation.

3. Nothing sick or weird things, just standard-fare Magical Girl Yuri overtones. As mentioned, there are shiny-naked girls scenes. Gore are not shown, rather rendered artistically.

4. Not Sure, as I watched it subbed. I've seen some short clips of dubbed ones, but not enough to judge the overall quality.

Cheers, I'll check it out as I'll probably tolerate what there is if the rest of the show holds up. Glad it has a conclusion!

Its stuff like relentless panty shots, frequent crude fan service or inappropriate sexualisation that switches me off.

I'll answer these as well, since they're good questions for a lot of people out there in the wider world, including some anime fans.

1. For sexual content, Madoka Magica is very clean. No pantyshots whatsoever to the best of my recollection. Minimal sexualisation. The transformation scenes are sometimes long and elaborate, but even they are pretty tasteful considering what many magical girl transformation scenes are like.

2. The TV series has a clear and firm conclusion. The movies have an open-ended ending, but you don't need any extra-anime materials to understand it.

3. Nothing weirder than the classic SHAFT head-tilt. Those can be weird/creepy, but then they tend to show up in moments that are intended to be weird/creepy (i.e. they support the intended tone of the scene, rather than nastily conflicting with it).

4. Yes, I think so. The voice-work is pretty good all-around, with only slight problems (ex. Mami sounds old for her age in English but otherwise has a voice that nicely suits the character).

I've gotten to episode 5 so far, its quite surreal and strange in a way (visually). I did wonder in the first two eps when it would start going somewhere but it appears to start moving from so 3/4. It looks decent.

ETA: finished the 12 episode series, it was good, surprisingly so and I wouldn't say I noticed any fan service really.
