Obviously, this is the anime which tells the same story as the manga I have been reading and reviewing. And it was completely worth it to see this on screen.
The story is the same but it was so awesome to see the characters moving and talking. The soundtrack is amazing, the animation is clean and sharp, and the voice acting is on point. One thing I will say that the anime does better than the manga is the witch labyrinths. Seeing that in color and moving was like seeing a twisted wonderland where all the cute things are designed to kill you. And I’m thinking this is entirely the point.
The anime shies away from gore but it does take more time to revel in the horror. You can turn a page fast but having to watch the characters cry and suffer is a different experience.
Again, I am enjoying the different take on magical girls. I’ve said that a lot, but it’s true. There is another volume (so I don’t feel guilty for watching this before reading volume three since volume three isn’t on this DVD) which I’m waiting to get into my hot little hands and of course, I will be reviewing it.
Seeing the same ole stories in a new light is always fun and I can’t wait for the next one!
