Interesting post but eventually myopic in its claims.
- I never said Madoka is not a deconstruction. I said it is not the first and it is hardly the best.
- You say the magical powers in it have an origin. I don’t see why that is any different from other mahou shows. It still is magic in people or objects.
- Then you say it has consequences. Sorry, but there is no such thing if eventually everything can be undone as easily as it is done, as proven by the ending.
- And most mahou shows eventually mention how being a magical girl means you can never have a truly normal life. It is subtle in most but it’s there.
