Covers episodes 9-12 of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
What I Liked: Much the same as the first movie, and by extension the series. Character animation has improved ever so slightly. What I Didn't: Why the random musical interlude?Final Verdict: The second part of this movie-length recap adapts the final 4 episodes with perfect pace and effective storytelling while adding in some slight but noticable visual improvements here and there. All the voice actresses manage to one-up their previous performances, the soundtrack is great and the ending is still as heart-wrenching as it was on TV.
This movie... So many feels. Again, like with the first movie, this one follows so close to the original anime that I'm not going to spend too much time on this review. The animation is great, and I loved seeing Homura's story a second time. It's so heartbreaking, but it's made me love her so much for it. I was a little more prepared for the ending this time, so while it was still very emotional, it didn't depress me quite as much as it did when watching the anime. Also, I think it helps knowing that there's a third movie that continues the story, so hopefullly that has a better overall ending. Overall, it left just as much of an emotional impact as the anime did, and while I still hate that Makoda's sacrifice felt almost meaningless, it was nice to be reminded that she had no regrets.
Spoiler Alert (not really, but proceed with caution) When i watched this i honestly had no idea what was going on, it was very confusing to get your head around all these new concepts, i'm not saying the story is bad though in fact i think it was quite interesting once, you know... you understand whats happening but yeah i thought they did a good job with this anime i felt like i didn't know some of the characters though so when they died i felt nothing so i wish i could get to know some of them a bit more.
