At first I thought this was a slice of life with some small magical added to it. Was I wrong, this is a spectacular anime with friendships and hardships based off of wishes people make. It is a must watch!! It's rated a 8.52 on IMAL2 I rated it a 9. Personally I'd say an 8.85 but was great!! Synopsis- Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are regular high school girls with regular lives, but all that changes when they encounter Kyuubey, a cat-like magical familiar, and Homura Akemi, the new transfer student. Kyuubey offers them a proposition: he will grant one of their wishes and in exchange, they will each become a magical girl, gaining enough power to fulfill their dreams. However Homura, a magical girl herself, urges them not to accept the offer since everything is not what it seems. A story of hope, despair, and friendship, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica deals with the difficulties of being a magical girl and the price one has to pay to make a dream come true. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Def give it a watch it's genre bases are Drama, Magical, Psychological, & Thriller!! And it def has a load of them all, enjoy my NAKAMA!! Anime is life!!
