Town settings feels very SHAFT-like.
Nice artwork and character design there.

Will be following this regardless of outcome.

i think it will be light-hearted since if it grimdark like madoka, people will say it "just Madoka with different character" or "why don't make a spin-off in Madoka world like Oriko and Kazumi if it dark" and it won't stand out. SHAFT is famous for being unique with their anime so i don't think they gonna make a madoka-like anime here

Looks Kawaii Desu

Watch it still have some dark twist though since Madoka did and it proved a hit.

Furthermore, given that it's only been a year and a half, I think it is far, far too early to say anything about its impact upon the medium.

Anyway, Prism Nana looks really standard, but if it ends up being something like Nanoha, I guess I'll be happy.
Also, as much as I adore Watchmen, it wasn't the trailblazer of dark-superhero comics - merely arguably the finest example.

I really wish they would've waited a couple more years to put out another Mahou Shoujo anime.

Because we all know this is going to be compared to Madoka to hell and back which might harm or hurt the show.

Maybe they should use grimdark twists in a more hidden and subtle way than Madoka.

Or it doesn't need to be dark at all. Being "dark" doesn't automatically make it a well told story.

You can't say this show's not getting any publicity right now, with the way people are either hyping it up to be the next Madoka, or damning it because it might not be.

I wouldn't mind this being a rather 'ordinary' magical girls show. That's what I kinda expected from Madoka in the first place, before I learned who Gen Urobuchi is and what he's best known for.

Either way, I'm expecting SHAFT to throw a surprise or two down my way. Most of their shows have never really been 'ordinary', and I'm not expecting this to be any exception.

It probably won't be like Madoka Magica but I'm guessing it's not gonna be like other magical girl series too.

Yeah, I think one with sort of atmosphere or Bakemonogatari's would be neat. But please no more head tits, that was abused to hell and back Denpa Onna.

I'm thinking that this will probably air in January of 2013. Shaft is typically excited to get their shows running soon.

I am hoping it ahs no combat at all, I don't think I have watched a mahou shoujo show "aimed at males" that has emphasis on combat scenes.


unrelated.

^ Oh ... now I'm damn lost, just what kind of Mahou Shoujo "aimed at males" are you used to watch?

I think this is going to be a light-hearted, comedy show (with lots of head tilt). At the present, its main attraction to me is Kantoku's art.

Nanoha and Madoka are examples of Mahou Shoujo shows aimed at males.

nanoha and madoka, you could even add precure that has males as a secondary target, I am expecting something more like moetan.
