So if you didn't know I am a Steven Universe fan, for those of you that don't know Steven Universe is about the misadventures of a boy named Steven, the youngest of a team of magical guardians of humanity: the Crystal Gems. Steven may not be as powerful as the other Crystal Gems. Or as savvy. And he doesn't have much control over his powers, which originate from the gem in his bellybutton inherited from his late mother. But that doesn't stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures and somehow finding a way to save the day! www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfKUdm…

And just a few days ago it was anouced that it would not be airing reruns anymore, you only get one chance to see the episode and that it. Furthermore the spot that would usually play the rerun will be replaced by "The Amazing World of Gumball" and...ugh...."Teen Titans Go!"...
This screams "Cancelation!" and I don't want the show to end, it's one of the most entertaining shows I have seen, it have so much diverse characters, strong female leads, and a wonderful heart that is becoming rare to find now a days.

So please, show Cartoon Network you care, watch the show on Thursday at 6:30, buy the comics, buy the DVD's, show it to your friends, let Cartoon Network know that we love this show and that we want it to keep going.

Here are more links on the Subject: www.nickandmore.com/2015/01/19…

The Reruns are back. kasukasukasumisty.tumblr.com/p…
However this doesn't mean that we should not show our love for the show by sporting it, buying it's products, watching the show and spreading the word about it. Cartoon Network has made it no secret that they will kill a show if they don't like it. Let's not give them a chance.

Hey, I wanted to tell you something. It's about Magical Girl series.

Madoka Magica isn't different from other Magical Girl shows because of all the death and stuff. OTHER MAGICAL GIRL SERIES HAD THAT TOO!

And I can prove it! Read all I have to say. And check the links I provide too.


Seriously! Even Sailor Moon (the original Magical Girl show) had death scenes like this girl being Stabbed To Death with a Giant Stake! Look here, I found a screenshot of it! -->   i.imgur.com/a4cgUIF.jpg


Not only that, but if I recall correctly, All of the Sailor Scouts died horribly and miserably at some point in the series too. Ask any Sailor Moon fan, they did!

And I have proof of it too!

Watch these videos here. It shows most of the miserable ways that the girls in Sailor Moon met their doom. -->   www.youtube.com/watch?v=reUvy7…
www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFUZg-…

See? Magical Girl anime series like even frikkin Sailor Moon had lots of death in them too!


And jeez. Molly's boyfriend. He died too. And I'm pretty sure her Mother died in front of her too, because she was transformed into a monster by Queen Beryl and her minions, right when the show was just beginning and Usagi was learning how to use her powers.

I also recall that for one of their deaths, one of the Sailor Scouts actually committed suicide in front of her friends, due to the loss of her boyfriend. What do you have to say about that?


And in this one episode, there was also this one torturous scene where Usagi had to climb barefoot up a tall staircase covered in sharp thorns, in order to reach her friends and save them.

And they had an episode where everyone was obsessed with these fluffy rabbits, but then the rabbits turned out to be demonic, soul-sucking creatures. Sometimes I think that Kyubey might have been inspired by those soul stealing bunnies.

And then there was those episodes in the amusement park where Ami (Sailor Mercury) was the only one safe because she couldn't be frozen or something like that.

And then when they were "normal girls" I remember the Sailor Moon novels mentioning that Usagi had PTSD-like nightmares from fighting Queen Beryl and the Negaverse for so long.

Not only that. Once, I picked up the Sailor Stars manga, where they were up against Sailor Galaxy or something like that, and jeez was the angst strong in that volume. Mainly because everyone was either dead/dying/couldn't remember anything.

Sailor Saturn's whole first arc was very depressing, too.


Also, something I found on Tumblr that explains my point too. -->   40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc7…


Also, there are plenty of other Magical Girl series that had lots of death in them too.

Like Lyrical Nanoha had a lot of death in it.

Also, Rozen Maiden was chock full of Magical Girls dying too.

And last but not least, Revolutionary Girl Utena! That Magical Girl series was so full of death and dying! Utena had even more than Maho Shoujo Madoka Magica too!


See? Other Magical Girl series had that sort of stuff in them too!


But yet Sailor Moon was still E-rated and Family Friendly. Because it had No Blood and Guts, No Swearing, No Sex, No Drugs, and No Nudity.

I'd still consider Maho Shoujo Madoka Magica to be E-Rated and Family Friendly too, because it also has No Blood and Guts, No Swearing, No Sex, No Drugs, and No Nudity.

Yeah, so what if Mami got her head eaten? There wasn't blood and guts gushing out all over the place when it happened, like something out of Kill La Kill, or Elfen Leid, or Fate/Stay Night, or Evangelion, or Attack on Titan! No blood makes it okay!

Not really. I didn't feel it.

Here's the REAL reasons why it's different from other Magical Girl shows. Read all my points below. This is what really sets it apart from all the others.

Please read over all 4 of my points below, and see what I mean.


1. There is no "Queen Beryl or Rita Repulsa-esque" Head Honcho Villain who is sitting on her throne, sending out the enemies after them.

(I always found Queen Beryl in Sailor Moon to be similar to villains such as Rita Repulsa in Power Rangers, Dr Hell in Mazinger Z, Gibbs in Titan Maximum, and also similar to baddies like King DeDeDe in Kirby and the Head Honchos in Jojo's Bizzare Adventure).

Like in most Magical Girl shows, there's always a Queen Beryl-esque head Honcho shown at the start who is like in each episode "Hahahaha, I'll send this one of my Random Minions after them, it will be the best way to deal with those troublesome heroes, and then I'll rule the world, MWA-HAHAHAHA!"

And most of the time, the random minion she sends out has something to do with a particular personal problem or place they are at or other such situation they are in for the episode.
(Example, during the Sailor Moon episode where the girls were hanging out at an Auto Repair Shop, Queen Beryl sent after them a Daimon Minion of her's called "Steering," who had Car-based powers, because that had to do with the situation they were in for that episode).

Then when the Random Minion is defeated, she's like "Blast, how could that minion have lost? But I'll be back with another one, and next time You Sailor Scout Heroes will Regret This," or something like that.

And when Queen Beryl isn't doing all that, she'd be seen in her evil lair, sitting on her throne, watching the Magical Girls from her Crystal Ball, and plotting out her next move (also very much like Rita Repulsa, Dr Hell, King DeDeDe, etc.)

Other Magical Girl animes also had a Head Honcho like that sending them out, including Tokyo Mew Mew and Pretty Cure. I forget what theirs are called, but they were just plain old Beryl/Rita clones too.

In Madoka Magica though, THERE IS NO no Queen Beryl or Rita-esque Head Honcho sending them out after them.
The Witches are acting on their own behalf, and not because some Beryl or Rita clone personally sent them after the girls as part of their plan for world domination. Not to mention, the Witch they face against is never specifically designed for the particular personal problem or place they are at or other such situation they are in for the episode.

And the presence of a Queen Beryl or Rita Repulsa style Head Honcho villain sending them out or not makes a BIG DIFFERENCE.


2. In Madoka Magica, they never say something like "WE WILL WIN BY USING THE POWERS OF LOVE," or something like that, like they always exclaim out loud in Sailor Moon and other such Magical Girl shows. That also makes a BIG DIFFERENCE from Sailor Moon and other Magical Girl series.


3. The art style of the Witches and their minions and barriers, which by the way, reminds me of corny and ridiculous stuff like Courage The Cowardly Dog, Chowder, Flapjack, The Amazing World of Gumball, Betty Boop, and other such goofy and silly shows, which also use those art styles too, and is why I can't take the series seriously, although it is still good though.
Heck, even SpongeBob used those Art Styles at times, like with "DOES THIS LOOK UNSURE TO YOU" and "The Fly Of Despair." It just made it even more ridiculous and silly-looking at those parts too.

The foes in Sailor Moon don't use that Art style for them though, which makes it different.

Here's how the majority of the bad guys they fight in Sailor Moon look like. --> i.imgur.com/SGtzZ3N.jpg

You see? The bad guys in Sailor Moon (unlike the Witches in Maho Shoujo) are much more humanoid, look more like people in costumes, with only small features such as fangs or pointy ears to show that they aren't human, are never enormous (they are always about the same size as the Magical Girls), and can even talk. Heck, many of them could easily pass as Power Rangers bad guys, who share similar features.

The Witches in Maho Shoujo are not like that though, which makes them different from the typical Magical Girl enemies because of that.


4. The Boss Battles are more action-packed and cooler, unlike most Magical Girl shows.

This is another big one, and one I think you really need to know.

Like in Sailor Moon, all the battles were basically this. She runs around a bit, goes "MOON TIARA MAGIC!" and then *Poof,* the enemy disappears instantly with pretty sparkles everywhere. That's it!
Not very action packed.

Or other times Usagi chickens out right in the middle, because she's a coward and a crybaby.
-And then the other Sailor Scouts would have to do the honors for her, but still not making it a big action-packed Boss Fight.
-Or her mysterious male benefactor, Tuxedo Mask, would arrive and then throw a rose to her and encourage her with a pep talk. Then she'd brave up from that and just proceed to do the whole "MOON TIARA MAGIC" business and finish things instantly as usual (this is most often the case)
-Or she'd be saved just by sheer dumb luck. That's it.


But in Madoka Magica, it's not like that. Instead, it's a big and long and epic fight done in real time. with lots of Parkour Moves and Explosions and Cool Attacks to damage the foe until it goes down, which Madoka Magica has instead. Much different than the wimpy stuff Sailor Moon has.

Madoka Magica's Boss Fights are more cooler and full of combat, Like something out of Final Fantasy, Xenoblade, Bayonetta, Persona, Kingdom Hearts, or other cool action-packed things like that.

Well most of them anyways, but a couple of them really weren't that good, especially near the end of the series, and could've been a lot better. One of the problems I have with the series.

But it's not just MOON TIARA MAGIC and the bad guy is finished all the time.

Oh, and the girls don't have to rely on a masked mystery man to give them moral support either, also making it different.


Do you understand now? Those points are the REAL reasons why it's different from other Magical Girl shows.

Anything you have to say about the reasons I stated?

Not really...
The tone is different because it takes a long hard look at the idea for little girls fighting monsters that can kill them.
