The Mahou Shoujo Must Go On 1 (Music)

I said I would do some posts on “Why Madoka is awesome”, in part as a kind of penance (if something so self-indulgent can be called penitential) for failing to do it justice when I first watched it. That’s not actually unusual for me – I tend to grind things exceeding small but even exceedinger slow, just one reason why I would not make a good professional reviewer. Mostly though I’m writing this because I like to talk about the series, and I appear to have accumulated a store of things I want to say about it. They won’t be in any particular order. Since they will be full of spoilers throughout I don’t recommend reading them unless you’re already familiar with the series. Also, I won’t be stopping to explain plot points – unless of course the plot is what I’m talking about. Subject to those caveats, read on.
