After the FPP
, I started watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica and got hooked. After the nearly unbearable wait for the last few episodes following the tsunami, all I wanted was more
I liked how it took an innocent, cheerful genre and turned it on its head into something very dark - costumed magical girls having breakdowns and turning guns on each other, rescuing their friends from suicide cults, adorable companions with evil plans (I really liked Paranoia Agent
as well)... And through all this, it's still also a quality program - an engaging story, interesting characters, interesting twists and turns in the plot.
I haven't seen too much anime, so suggestions of that sort are welcome, but you need not limit your answers to it - any television or film from any country is welcome.
