I don't really like the ending of madoka, episode 11 was nice and the end of 12 was also nice...


Spoiler:
It was a good wrap up at the end, but I just don't like how they "solved" it so to speak. With the whole Madoka turning into an godlike being.


AKA: The ending could not live up to my expectations that I got from the rest of the series.

I'm a bit torn on if I enjoyed it or not. I will probably have to rewatch it.

I watched the ending as well, and... wow. Awesome. And trippy.

Spoiler:
Homura's all-out attack was amazing. I had a feeling it wouldn't work though.

Not sure what to think about the after-credits bit. Does it imply Homura dies? I should have known the show wouldn't leave us with such a completely happy ending.

Well,

Counter-well,

Spoiler:
I think most people don't understand what the real point of the ending and Madoka's actions is, it's not to stop the girls from dying, but to stop them from dying in vain and create more pain for mankind.

Now that her wish is granted, everything the magical girls do will be for a perfectly good cause, thereby making the world for them a more happy place.


My two cents, and I loved it.

Just finished watching Durarara!!

It was very good, I liked it a lot, a few loose ends left, but considering the gigantic amount of plotlines and characters it was juggling it was very worth it.

Beautifully told to, very well worth the watch.

Well Nichijou's last episode happened and I'm totally saddened the show is over.
But what a wonderful show. One of the best I've seen.

Mawaru Penguindrum is just insane and I still am not following what is going on. Still incredible.

Also Ika Musume season 2 started and I love it already.

I liked it, but I'm not really sure what went on at times.

To quote this guy: "Gosh, Kanba must be crushed soon in fabulous max survival strategy. Isn’t it electrifying? Nothing in this world is pointless, and one must be punished for their crimes. Destiny!"

This is from the guy who brought us Utena. Some things might make more sense if you watch it again. (There are also some references to actual events in Japan, so the translator's commentary is helpful if you haven't seen it yet.)

Even so, I'm still as confused as you are.

I read the TVTropes article again after this last episode to help me understand a bit, but I think what I understand now is all I'm ever gonna understand; I'm not used to this kind of stuff.
EDIT- Wow, Joe, that first link's interesting!

...Wait, did someone say Ika Musume?

Currently watching Steins;Gate.

If you have any interest in things involving time travel, do yourself a favor and watch this. Really great so far.

I know this is a few months late...

But yeah, it's really a great one I enjoy. One of the few I rewatch and feel better about the second time through. Oh, and Izaya is awesome.

Currently I'm just watching the crap they show on Toonami. I honestly don't care for Samurai 7. It's kind of bored the hell out of me, and Eureka 7 is at least promising to me.

I'd watch ahead, but then I'd have nothing new to watch on Saturday nights.

Ho-hum.

Why this thread dried up is beyond me...

Well since it is October and close to Halloween, how about something from the horror genre? I'd recommend Another. There are only 12 episodes in the anime but I found it entertaining. You all should check it out and maybe tell me what you think .

It caught me off-guard, that's for sure. The umbrella came out of nowhere.

Spoiler:
So did the ending. It never occurred to me that it didn't have to be a student. There were some really big hints, and I missed them.

A lot of stuff from Another caught me off guard. That is why I enjoyed it because it wasn't predictable.

Spoiler:
The umbrella scene was crazy. What a way to go. I too missed the hints that it didn't have to be a student. In my opinion, I think the craziest part of the anime was when the students figured out that they could stop the deaths by killing the undead person. When that information was let out prematurely without knowing who the undead person was..... holy shit did everyone start killing each other. If I remember correctly, I think only 4 students and the librarian made it out alive out of the entire class.

What has got me excited is that the author of the original novel says he will be writing a spin-off novel of the original and a sequel to the original. There is no doubt in my mind that these will become their own anime eventually as well. Although I actually wouldn't mind reading the novels first if they were in English.
