[Madoka] Episode 8 - Shaft + Urobuchi = Unbeatable combination

This episode just revealed something that a lot of people were somewhat already expecting, but its impact was off-limit.

Seriously, those directions. Shinbo and Shaft is going all out. Urobuchi removed his limiter and going endless zetsubou roller-coaster ride. Being 12 episodes, pacing is incredibly fast, but amazingly suitable for creating for creating anticipation, horror and satisfaction. This animation is destined success.


  1. I thought this episode was rather "meh" directed, the story was rather a buildup and sadly expected, but it's obvious that the next episodes will be incredible.

  2. I really loved this episode.

  3. @Anon: I don't see where that 'meh' direction coming from. All of the Kyuube's appearances were supported really strong directions, whole talk between Homura vs Sayaka and Madoka vs Sayaka was highly tension-building.
