Madoka is a show that shows you cute things and then hits you with darkness by surprise. Now that everyone knows it gets dark, some of the shock is lost, but it’s still pretty jarring. I believe it would be called a subversion of the MG genre.I guess the way I see it is the hype surrounding the dark side to it kind of turns me off. Simply knowing a series gets dark is like a kiss of death for me. I could probably rant forever on why that is, but its just not appealing to me. I should get around to trying Madoka, its just hard to get myself interested in it. Especially when there are other anime I wish I could be watching (why is HXH not on Hulu?????).
subtle-queen asked: Sailor Moon
The first character I first fell in love with: It was actually Sailor Mars. I first got interested in the anime after seeing an article for it in one of my sister’s magazines and I just loved her design. And when I did get into it just ate up the episodes focusing on her.
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Probably Mamoru. As a kid I reacted oddly to romance, I would feel overall very embarrassed whenever something had kissing in it (even in Disney movies) so his presence as a whole made me feel awkward. And like a lot of people I thought he was just some dweeby guy who never did anything except get kidnapped, toss roses, and wear ugly clothes. But most of that came from the sucky dub and the first anime being very harsh towards him.The manga really changed my mind with him and I’m glad SMC exists because it can allow people who only saw the old anime to see what Naoko had intended.
The character everyone else loves that I don’t: I don’t know, probably Eiru and An because I hated those fillers. They sucked. I know people like those episodes, but I never liked them.
The character I love that everyone else hates: I know people like Prince Demande, but I also know a lot that hate him and I think their hate is justified. But I don’t know he was such an interesting villain and I just really enjoyed him for that.
The character I used to love but don’t any longer: Seiya. People are so divided on Seiya, and I used to like her a lot and I don’t hate her its just…the anime made her (or in this case, him) so annoying and the way he handled his feelings for Usagi only reinforced the idea that Mamoru was always the right man for her.
The character I would totally smooch: Mamoru except Usagi would get really mad if I did so I’ll leave him be.
The character I’d want to be like: Setsuna. <3
The character I’d slap: Chibi-Usa. Let’s be real she kind of needs one.
A pairing that I love: Mamo/Usa and Haruka/Michiru.
A pairing that I despise: Mamoru and Rei. They just feel so incompatible and I never got why the anime did this.
Have you watched Madoka at all? I feel like that might be your jam…No its on a very long list of anime I should have probably watched by now. But I was told its a rather dark series, at least dark by magical girl standards.
