When a new girl joins her class, Madoka Kaname feels she recognizes the mysterious, dark-haired transfer student from one of her dreams...a dream where she is approached by a cat-like creature who offers Madoka an opportunity to change destiny. Madoka had always thought magic was the stuff of fantasy...until she sees the transfer student fighting with the very cat-being from her dream! And just like in Madoka's dream, the cat gives her a choice: Will Madoka become a Puella Magi in exchange for her dearest desire? What will be the cost of having her wish come true?

I'm borrowing this series from my nephew as he told me it was dark and he loved it. I'm not too sure where this is going in the first volume yet. I'm intrigued. It seems to be typical shojo fantasy at first, but there is something off about these magical girls, the dialogue is quite depressing, and we come to realize these magical girls' lives are not all fun and games. The art, however, is usual cutesy shojo form. I'm definitely interested in continuing on wth the series but not sure whether this will win me over yet.

The anime was excellent and a game changer in its genre... the manga is about as excellent as the animation.

this was such a good anime. I imagine the manga to be the same. I first wasn't sure about watching it because I thought it would be all sweet like sailor moon. but I gave it a try and it definitely was not what I was expecting. the story is emotional, unique and has a dark side. I just wanted to keep watching more(but it was only like 12 episodes I think). I would recommend it to anyone.

I love this manga so much. It starts off as a pretty typical story but as you get further in it gets darker and darker. It is in my top 5 favorites.
