Sayaka's gone off the deep end? Kind of saw someone stealing violin boy coming, though.

dunno... in appearance doesn't like that deep mostly cuz it is mahou shoujo (sailor moon comes to my mind) but it seems the argument is pretty good or too dark perhaps?

Yeah most of the ones of this genre have that. The difference with this one is a bit darker of a story. It's due to that that I end up looking forward to the next episode instead of brushing it off as something to pass the time.

It's an impressive all-star team they have going here, and they're delivering quite well.

Director: Akiyuki Shinbo, famous for his unique art style working at SHAFT with titles like Bakemonogatari.  (Amusingly Sinbo also directed the first Nanoha TV series, which was also a popular otaku-focused magic girl show that tried to be a bit different by specifically targeting an older, largely male audience).
Music: Yuki Kajiura, who did music for Noir, .Hack, and Portrait of Cosette (which she worked with Shinbo with).
Script: Urobochi Gen, who is well known for his mainly psychological horror eroge with studio NITRO+.  His story in Saya no Uta blew my mind, this guy is good. (You all should play Saya no Uta... just saying)
Character Design: Ume Aoki, character design for Hidamari Sketch.  This one seems to stand out, but they chose Ume because they wanted the show to have the outwards appearance of being a cute, magical girl show.  If you don't have happy/cute starting point, there won't be as much contrast.  And Shinbo loves contrast.

Actually that's an interesting point, originally they wanted to market the show as a standard 'healing' type (happy/cute/feel-good) magical girl anime and leave Gen's name off the staff list so that they would deliver an epic shock with episode 3.  That didn't work too well since the staff list got leaked anyways, but their goal is to use the 'Magical Girl' genre as a base for their show to make viewer's expectations conflict more with the psychological drama that they're going to, or if you're up to date, currently dropping.

Dude... you should totally read the novels... after all those 15 episodes there's more =)

Bakemonogatari is one of my favorites indeed... oh btw, the singer for the opening of this show is ClariS... same as the one singing on "Ore no Imouto konna ni kawai wake janai" (mostly what I told my friends about my lil sis xD)

Me: *watches Oreimo* The OP is ok.
Me at work: SONNNNAAAA YASISHIKUUUUU SONNNNNNAIIII DEEE- FFF FINE I'LL DOWNLOAD IT.

*months later*

Me: *watches Madoka* The OP is pretty catchy. Must be Oreimo chick.
Me at work: MEZAMETA KOKORO HASHIRIDASHITAA I CAN'T SING THIS FAST FFFF ALSO WILL DOWNLOAD.


I jumped for joy when I saw the Kalafina ending, def my fave group outta Japan right now. I was hoping it meant Yuki Kajiura did the music, I could tell as soon as Mami's transformation scene kicked in. ^^; So utterly her. Anyone have any ideas on Madoka OST release date? I can't brave the moonspeak. u-u
