About Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part 1 and 2 Standard Edition Blu-ray

This Puella Magi Madoka Magica movie set contains the first two movies.

Madoka Kaname is an eighth-grader who leads a peaceful, fun-filled life as a student, surrounded by her beloved family and her best friends. One day, a transfer student named Homura Akemi arrives in Madoka's class. She is a dark-haired beauty with a somewhat mysterious disposition. Soon after meeting Madoka for the first time, Homura goes on to issue Madoka a strange warning.

Madoka also meets Kyubey, a mysterious looking white creature. He says, "Make a contract with me and become a magical girl!" to make any wish come true -- Madoka didn't know the meaning of this miracle nor what its cost may prove to be. An impending loss triggers a drastic change in her destiny...

The movie are way better

by

I first saw the TV version of Madoka and wasn't really satisfied but I recently went back and watched the movies and it blew me away.



They didn't just cram the TV show into a movie format. They cut out the boring scenes that didn't add anything to the story, added better soundtracks to the situations and even redrew a lot of the scenes including the transformations and they look a to better.



If you loved the TV series or didn't, either way this is a must buy.

Slightly condensed but still perfect.

They condensed the 13 episode anime into about 4 hours of screen time by eliminating boring filler parts while keeping the emotional roller coaster intact. I highly recommend this for fans of magical girls and horror. The packaging is pretty basic coming in a plastic case with two bluray disks but no booklet or anything else.

Great series quality, but a bit low on content

by

I am impressed by the quality storytelling and art direction of Urobuchi, Shinbo, Ume, and SHAFT. Two BluRay discs for the movies are a must have, and in my opinion, better than the series' TV show. However, there being not much else to the set except for the standard cases and discs is a tad bit disappointing. Ah well, I suppose bonus content and a cool case belong in the Limited Edition.

Good, good, what else?

by -

Just a disclaimer, it's not the box set. If any such box set with bonus materials exists, it would be in the limited edition blu-ray + DVD set. Regardless of the low bonus content and an extra-cool case, the blu-ray case with two discs will suffice. Aniplex could work on the pricing though...
