Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...

Girls fighting against physical manifestations of their inner struggles with magical powers in order to fulfill a contract. Certainly sounds familiar...

RandomGirlx RandomGirlx says...

They both had a like cursed contract which from all ways everything would always end to a bad ending.

HaruNaomi HaruNaomi says...

From what I've watched so far, the plot is really similar. The motives, the characters, the relationships too! I enjoyed both of them and I would recommend them to anybody who likes dark-themed animes.

Frogsinatrenchcoat Frogsinatrenchcoat says...

Both are magical girl anime that deal with dark themes such as suicide, and focus on a small group of magical girls, who sometimes fight together, Or fight/argue with eachother, and have varying reasons for fighting.(although not necessarily both to the same degree of all these things) with a significant part of it being the interactions between them.

AlexPtx AlexPtx says...

It is very similar! magical girls, becomeing friends, even their story arcs overlap! also visual wise very similar, especially the way evil is portrayed.

yunaleska yunaleska says...

An anime of magical girls with serious undertones, it deals with serious issues such as death and suicide and all this represented by some magical girls facing surreal enemies from alternate realities

AardvarkRex AardvarkRex says...

Common premise: being a teenage girl is suffering. If you are reading this now but not suffering, you are not a teenage girl. If Jesus Christ was born in our times he would be a teenage girl, because being a teenage girl is the ultimate form of suffering.

Korviloon Korviloon says...

Shows are just deconstructions of the magical girl genre. Honestly feels like Wonder egg has at least partial inspiration from Madoka.

From the first episode of wonder egg priority.. They have a little bit of similar plots I'd say and the thing about eggs and friends is just so similar

AtticPrincess AtticPrincess says...

The Anthem of the Heart: "What’s inside the egg? All kinds of feelings locked inside. Then, unable to keep them locked in, it explodes."

Wonder Egg Priority: "If you want to change the future, you only need to choose now. Now, believe in yourself and break the egg."

hinatahonoka hinatahonoka says...

really similiar eggs, friends, dream- fantasy mixed up with reality and the general vibe of both is really identical

Paranoia Agent

Paranoia Agent

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Qplayer Qplayer says...

Both are anime where the lines between reality and dreams are blurred and the tone can become surprisingly violent. If you enjoy atypical plot structures and high intensity storytelling you'd like both of these shows.

gibbygoob15 gibbygoob15 says...

they both have same psychological vibes and overall both creepy, weird (in a great way), skin-crawling animes.

Animatis Animatis says...

After Satoshi Kon death, i was thinking that his unique style of making anime passed away with him, but Wonder Egg, omg, it's feels just like his works from first moments of series. If your thinking was in similar way , wonder egg can be a relief for you.

(I am writing this 1 episode into Wonder Egg Priority)

Wonder Egg Priority:

Girl being thrown into some sort of strange agency where she'll have to go to different worlds and fight different bosses to save an old friend. 

A lot of similar pastelish aesthetics to FLip Flappers

Probably WLW but school girls with a childlike wonder, most likely wont do any smut

Nice character expressions and animations

Episode one is just SCREAMING Flip Flappers to me

gilch gilch says...

I love the art style in both of these. They're gorgeously animated, and the main characters are cute. They both frequently fall into a surreal dream world. Wonder Egg Priority seems more focused on the real world, and uses the magical-girl monster-of-the-week dream sequences as an excuse to tell about it (at least so far), which gets a little repetitive with small variations, while FLIP FLAPPERS seems to be mostly about exploring the other side, with the "real" world just there as an anchor to keep you sane, so the dream worlds have a lot more diversity.

Revolutionary Girl Utena

Revolutionary Girl Utena

When Utena Tenjou was very little her parents died, and a prince comforted her in her time of loss, giving her a ring with a rose seal. He so impressed her that she decided to become a prince herself one day. Now, Utena is a teenager at Ohtori Academy who's athletic and notorious for dressing in a boy's uniform. When a member of the Student Council humiliates a friend of hers Utena challenges him to a duel, and he accepts only when he sees she possesses a rose seal ring. She soon discovers that this is no normal duel - it's a bizarre and ritualistic battle that the Student Council regularly conducts. In fact when she wins, Utena finds to her considerable chagrin that she gets to have Anthy Himemiya, a rather docile student, as her 'Rose Bride'. If she wants to keep Anthy she'll have to win more duels against members of the Student Council and others. What is the ultimate purpose of these duels and Anthy's role as the Rose Bride?

Dense, thematically heavy coming of age story dealing with the trauma inflicted on girls by society. Also, loosely, magical girls!

Both animes have amazing visuals, female kid main characters, and the mcs are both willing to risk their lives in for their goal. Yet where the animes really shine is the characters. Made in Abyss and Wonder Egg Priority both have a way of making you route for their characters. The connection that the characters share are amazing, they feel real. They're both must watches in my book.

Alternating between surreal and slice-of-life, the tone is somehow mostly cute and bright, despite the dark traumas driving the story. It tugs at your heartstrings, and you find yourself caring for the characters, flawed as they are. Their friendship seems to make their struggle worth it. You have to learn the rules of the game as you go. The premise seem simple, but the execution is layered with nuance. I am, of course, describing both animes at once. If you like those things about one, you'll find them in the other too.
