It's a slice of life comedy about cute high school girls doing arguably cute things. Enough said.

It's over-populated. There's more people in Japan than there are people in Texas and Japan is way smaller than Texas.
>> No. 33461 [Edit]
Populations naturally adapt to the land and what it can comfortably support(first world ones anyway), Japan is not the only one going through this, Germany was(I don't know about now because of all the migrants), Italy is and most eastern European states are.

Most western states have large immigrant populations and are still receiving more and in cases like Australia, the US and Canada they also still have large amounts of land that can be used to expand into.

What a fantastic ep. I've seen this same kind of set up countless times, and they always pull a copout for the sake of a cheap laugh while putting off the issue at hand to keep the status quo. I fully expected them to do the same here and it looked like they were going in that direction, only to turn things around at the last minute and actually tackle the issue head on for what ended up being the best resolution one could realistically hope for there. Good stuff.

A half length show starring Hotaru as a distinctly unmagical girl and ditzy senpai. Seems like it might be based on a 4-koma type comic, first ep was pretty entertaining. Every time she pulls a trick, it gets botched resulting in unintended fanserivce instead of magic

This is a show about a bunch of young woman going to the gym to lose a bit of weight. It's not a high-intensity sports show about obsessively commiting yourself to a single pursuit. Either way, there's no good reason to complain about minute details like how they animate weight lifting not being accurate to real life, and on top of that complaining about anime as a whole, creators making doujin instead of "talking to real woman"(???) and "basement dwellers".

What is it about Madoka that inspires such ardent fervor among its fanbase? While it's a fun watch and the impact on the viewer is of course subjective, even among other popular/hyped series Madoka seems to have a disproportionately vocal cross-section of fans, even moreso than other SHAFT works (e.g. Monogatari).

While the "twist" on the Mahou Shoujo genre might have been interesting (I am not a particular fan of the genre so I cannot speak as to wheter it was actually novel), that alone doesn't really seem to be substantive enough to explain it. Was it just the combination of the artwork and mildly "dark" plot combined with the sprinkling of symbolism to provide a thin layer of depth that nonetheless remains accessible?

There's some who claim that it grapples with essential truths like "what are good intentions," "what's the nature of evil," (all conveniently wrapped up in a Rorsarch-esque fog of moral ambiguity that makes it prime material for over the top analysis), but such grand and overarching themes seem like they could found in almost any piece of work. Certainly not enough to make claims as bold as "greatest story ever told" (which although might have been initially in jest, probably does reflect to some degree the reverence some have for this particular work). And not to mention the downright veneration many seem to share for Homura.

I think it's simply because it is a more mature Mahou Shoujo targetted at an older audience, an average adult anime fan is more likely to like Madoka than Precure.

I know(I actually watch Precure myself) but it's still less mainstream among adults particularly in the west(for example it's not even subbed by horrible subs).

The idea here seems to be that Madoka is appreciated because of its intellectual insight, and that this is largely not justified. Neither claim is correct, but let's start with the first one. Madoka has the production and direction values, not to mention great moe characters. Add to that the emotional nature of its storytelling, and Madoka already deserves to be remembered. But going deep into what makes the characters so good is a lot of work, and many that only feel the moe but can't really think about it will take the easy way out to justify their love, which is saying the anime is "deep". It's a simple claim, and in casual conversation it's quite hard to falsify. But I want to stress this: if these people loved Madoka for intellectual reasons, as OP seems to believe, they'd talk about Camus or Nietzsche instead of Madoka.

Second, when it comes to whether or not Madoka's intellectual side is "substantive enough", OP is right to disqualify himself right off the bat. Tl;dr is that Madoka has some good commentary to add to the first story arc of Sailor Moon, but the conclusion of its thought isn't much to celebrate. It's the problem that is more interesting, and even then, it's core dates from the early nineties.

1) Mahou Shoujo was about self-sacrifice even before Sailor Moon, but SM managed to choose the exact right points to focus on. Those are: what constitutes a "pure heart", the isolation the heroines experience, and the absolute and absolutely silent manner of their sacrifice. It's a classic tragic story, except for the absence of corruption - the girls simply die. And here we see the first thing Madoka has to add: truly classical tragedies show how the protagonist is heroic but succumbs to evil and self-destructs.
2) The second move Madoka makes is a little bolder: it forgets how SM was retconned to have a happy ending, and asks what the implications would have been if the story of SM would have ended there. Should we take it to mean that in times of great danger, some misfits give their lives for people who ostracized them in the first place, and that's it? Is there no way to escape this fate? Ultimately, Madoka deems existence itself tragic - the only way out is to go outside "existence". Going even further, you could say t
