the Madoka movies rule and are totally worth 4+ hours of your time

so by now I’m sure everyone with the slightest interest in this series has checked it out already, what with it being arguably one of the most important anime of the last 5 years, so I won’t go into too deep of detail on that. this is more about the film adaptation of the Madoka TV series, a three part trilogy with the first two parts serving as a retelling of the 12 epiosdes and the third part being the expanded “true ending”.

While it’s probably easy to write off the first two films as a compressed rehash of the series and hold off for Part 3, doing means you’ll be missing out on a fantastic adaptation that makes a lot of improvements - as well as a few odd missteps - to the original material. Though the signs of cropping are still noticeable and what’s left out isn’t all just filler, the story loses none of its power and the finished product is so well made that fans of the TV series cannot afford to pass it up, and if you’re somehow NOT part of the converted masses, there’s never been a better time to jump in. Here’s why:

  • The animation has been given an overhaul, and to put it simply, Madoka has never looked better. Fans of the series will most likely notice the absence of the sudden and inexplicable quality dips in the art (most infamously pointed out in the off-model “Meduka” shots), and the new visual effects are nothing short of gorgeous. it manages to improve upon the style of the original without tweaking it too much, so the iconic witch sequences are still immediately recognizable and awesome, as well as everyone’s transformations. professional’s tip: try to watch it on a TV if possible (or at least a nice monitor that isn’t your laptop’s). When you see the end result, you’ll be glad you did
  • audio has also been redone, with new music tracks by the masterful Yuki Kajiura. similar to the visual improvements to this adaptation, the new music makes the overall experience even more gripping than before. all of the new songs feel like they naturally fit in the Madoka universe, and there’s less repetition of pieces when compared to the TV series. the new vocal themes by ClariS and Kalafina are also welcome, though Luminous feels a bit too much like connect 2.0 for my tastes
  • the story has been altered ever so slightly for runtime, which is more of a mixed bag than an outright fault like you’d imagine. the pacing of the story as a whole is ramped up this time around, with major events coming in quick succession of each other and some of the fat from the early episodes trimmed off. while it doesn’t feel like “Diet Madoka” it definitely feels like Madoka on amphetamines, and while the speedy pace works with some scenes, it works against others. Episode 3’s twist that devastated viewers in the original series isn’t quite as devastating anymore, and it’s not even because you already know it’s coming; rather, you simply have no time to reflect upon it. the film is constantly moving and pulling you along with it, and it’s because of this that it’s hard to recommend the films as a starting point for the uninitiated. if anything, the amped pacing is a service to the fans and the familiar, but newbies will probably want to start from the beginning.

that said, both parts are still worthwhile outings with a lot to offer, even with the relative lack of new content. it’s not a full overhaul on the scale that Rebuild of Evangelion 1.11 was, but it’s not a lazy recycling either. in a sense, it’s the best overall way to experience the story and characters Madoka has to offer - just don’t make it your first time.
