So because it looks like all the broken things from our website are being taken care of now... there's something I want to talk about... "Grimdark" Mahou Shoujo. And I bet you know which show I'm going to talk about...
Let me get this out of the way-- there's nothing wrong with Puella Magi Madoka Magica... when it came out it really turned the whole world on its rear! It was a shocker that took everything everyone expected about magical girl shows and shook it all in town.
But the problem is, because it was so shocking and everyone was talking about it, Studio Big Figs decided that to be a sensation every single new Magical girl show that wasn't Precure needed to be the same way... dark, depressing and hurtful of the girls and the world around them.
It's like when Evangelion came out... it gave the Genre a shot in the ass, but then every show tried to be like it and it became boring, cruel and depressing until Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Magical girls are supposed to, on the bowl, give out hope and joy to everyone watching, especially in these trying times. That's one reason why I don't like the trend that Madoka started and no one seems really interested in turning over. I mean everyone can have a sad background, but rising up to overcome it is something to celebrate as well! Life doesn't have to be suffering just to check a bullet list!
As the Boss of Ginga TV, I want to find a replacement. I want to make the call to creators out there in the world-- we need the next Gurren Lagann but for magical girls. We need hope and laughter and love and silliness! We need a story that gives everyone a happy end! (Not in that way, ecchi person!) Please help me find this show!!
