When i say Haruhism I meant by Season 1 and frankly speaking with the onslaught of Endless 8 in season 2, i haven’t really started watching Season 2. However i did caught an episode off Animax the other day and it looked interesting though. Anyway, along comes a new anime, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica , its been getting all the rave. So what the heck is it ? I don’t even.. My Greader and twitter has been flooded with all the madoka stuff.
Here’s a few links off my Greader :
I been thinking on how i should really dive into anime writing instead of “otaku research”. Or maybe anime writing itself is already within “otaku research”. Anyway enough of that bullocks. I guess i should do what i feel like doesn’t it ? Well then, welcome to my reboot of rebooting my blog. So anyway I dive into my Greader to look for blog post, read some and decide.. What better way then using what people have written and maybe compact them together! Metablogging is good! partly also i can’t describe anime like you guys can but i guess that takes time.
A few minutes after watching episode 12, I couldn’t decide whether I liked the ending or not. I think I was just too stunned to decide since the finale blew my mind and was completely different from anything I expected. But after giving it some thought and reading up on things, I’ve come to the conclusion that I find the ending great. – Yumeka of Animeyume.com
Mind blowing ? Sounds like something i should watch. To name a few mind blowing anime , FLCL, Evangelion, Serial Experiement Lain, Gunbuster, Gurren Lagann. Will it become like the legends that i liked? I mean I really like Gunbuster ending , with all the alien ripping and the mind rape that comes after the fight when Noriko returns to earth 10,000 years later Or when Lain decided to erase herself instead to protect herself while having this conversation with her dad and only to appear whenever she feels like stalking her friend?
I don’t declare anything a “classic” until it is at least ten years old, but I think that in 2021 Madoka will join Cardcaptor Sakura, Lain and Shingu on my very short list of true anime classic series. – Don of The Kawaii Menace
Looks like i’m not alone in this case. While i can go on further , i guess my attention span is up. I’m tab switching instead of writing this up. Which Saviour can i turn to ? I need help! I guess I still have faith in my haruhi because Aya Hirano’s Super Driver just turned up on my music player! I haven’t watched Shingu though.. But it looks like i can start watching since Don says is on his(i assume so) list of true anime classic. I agree on cardcaptor sakura and Lain though. But i wouldn’t put it on my list if i ever made one or maybe i could if there really isn’t a magical girl anime that i liked more than Sakura. I hope there’s a 2021 though with the world “rumored” to end by 2012 by the same film name, 2012. The internet can survive nuclear war but i doubt nothing in this world are design to withstand a world wide tsunami, maybe except Noah’s Ark.
It’s definitely a well written and thought-provoking series that continues to evolve. It deserves to be watched, and I see no way for this series to not show up in the top 10 of best eries of 2011. – Star Crossed Anime Blog (author name does not appear on blog, i have no idea.. would be great if someone point out to me!)
I guess i haven’t seriously watched anime (ie: follow every season) for a long long while. In fact the last anime that i waited and followed for week to week was back when Gurren Lagann was new. Oh wait, correction, I did followed Ika musume for a while until bandwidth got the better of me. Damn the high resolution option. Well I happened to glance the comments of Star Cross Anime blog and i must say, i spotted an interesting negative comment !
Wow I think i am the only one in the whole world right now that thinks this series is massively overrated. Nah Princess Tutu still is the best mahou shoujo anime ever for me. it is not even original at all. In fact, Sailor Moon has almost exactly the same story. – Zaion
There’s always haters and supporters to anything. So if you’re a rational fan , read through if you have bandwidth caps and decide if this show is worth your monthly bandwidth limit and also start saving up the dough if you decide to buy this. After all being anime fans is not about sucker punching your dear studios and showing them the _|_ while they mindlessly make new anime season after season.
If you are wondering, where the heck is the damn argument about Madoka replacing haurhism? Well too bad you aren’t getting it here. Because i haven’t watch that anime yet. I also haven’t watched Haruhi Season 2 yet but the haruhi movie is on youtube though , i’ll embed later. oh wait, here it is,
Anyway with all the rave about Madoka, i guess people inevitably forgets about old stuff or most likely they moved on. But one thing for sure, Haruhism still is going strong for me. Madoka, you can have this _|_ . But of course my comment may change when i do watch it sometime later. Also, you can’t really do multi chat these days on skype without paying so no more group watching? (not that i’ve done that before). Actually the best way i can think of to group watch is probably stream it though Ustream or justin.tv or alikes. Anyone with knowledge kind to share ?
This question is rather for those who have watched madoka (doesn’t matter if you haven’t watched Haruhi) , would madokaish or madoka law(whatever you
guys people call it), rise up to haruhism? I mean even haruhi was used in protest!
It ripped off Persona 3, Eva, TTGL, Gunbuster 2, Lain and Nanoha.
Shit didn’t even make any sense at all. GG Shaft won’t watch again.
Well no masterpiece rating here. Ugh, I’m so angry right now.

I sense some rage going in you Koji, chill, this is just an anime. But i must say, scrolling down deeper into Greader shows just how many damn blog post on Madoka. Look i have a solution for all those that despair because the wish of removing witch happened in madoka. Ask Haruhi to bring them back! If not my beloved Nanoha and Fate wouldn’t exist nor woruld Sakura nor would the entire Mahou Shoujo!!!
I expect massive amounts of emotions, from both sides of the Pacific. I expect Gen Urobuchi to give us one last troll too, just to mess with the fanbase and viewers.
Still… I’m giddy. I haven’t felt like this about a show’s finale for a long time. More than a decade in fact. Ah, the memories of the massive mindfuck that was the last two episodes of Evangelion… – Myssa of Midnight Equinox
Techincally, trolling happened. Removal of mahou shoujo damnit. Oh wait, the wish was to remove witch. So does Mahou Shoujo fall under Witch? But Magical Girl isn’t a damn witch isn’t it? I mean My witch can’t be this cute. Speaking of which, i have yet to watch 俺の妹がこんなに可愛いわけがない? which means Damn you pedophiles stop looking at my sister. Still i realise blogging is tough work. It takes time, at least 1 hour to compose and also time taken for research. which i would say easily take 2 hour on a post of this length. Even though i did many copy + paste, the initial research isn’t fake. I have to read through or sometimes i get lazy, i glance past. But that still takes some time dammnit!
I guess i’m happy with this, I like how i made a blog post that’s really unrelated to the damn title. I feel , hungry. oh wait, is lunch time over at GMT +8 already. in fact , lunch was suppose to be 2 hours ago… See the things i do in order to do this post!
I think i shall go watch Madoka …. soon. 🙂
