Finally Watched It: “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” vol 2

This volume follows the second volume of the manga pretty closely and while the voice acting and music keep their quality, there were a couple of questionable camera angles that had me confused. They were super diagonal or oddly framed in a way where you know no human being would have deliberately placed a camera. At one point two characters were sitting at a table and I think the camera would have to have been sitting on the girl’s lap, at an angle, with the zoom at 150%. This only happened a couple of times so it wasn’t too distracting.

The tone also is constant but I was a little taken aback by the gore being blacked out. Perhaps I’m spoiled by other anime were zero fucks are given and people spill gallons of blood all the time. I wonder what this would have looked like if the animators were really allowed to let loose.

Overall, I’m enjoying this! I don’t know if this is an anime I’d watch more than once, though.
