Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie -Rebellion- DVD/Blu-ray (Hyb) Limited + CD

Just A Few Notes....
If you liked the TV series then you don't want to miss this movie. But there are plenty of places on the web/print media that can tell you more and in a more interesting manner than I ever can, so I just want to leave a few words about the actual product.

As usual you get a deluxe package from Aniplex, but slightly different. The box case is more like plastic and has all this glitter that doesn't come out in the photos provided... very funky indeed.

The box set comes packaged in a higher grade thick plastic wrap than usual, and it can be taken off without breaking it since its folded and held at the back by a piece of sticky tape. If you are one who doesn't care for it then rip it apart any way you like, however if you wanna keep it as pristine as you can then don't undo the sticky tape since its a bit of a bastard and will ruin the plastic wrapping when you try to undo it. I recommend you use a hobby knife and cut the tape under the fold. You'll know what I mean when you see it. Another option is to cut a slip along the side where the discs come out.

The set comes with a very nice booklet. However, don't read the introduction before watching the movie as it spoils the first 40 minutes. There are only a few pages of art gallery, and the rest of the booklet contains these arty/poetic descriptions of characters in the nightmare/witches world.

The on-disc extras as usual are pretty poor. You get the usual textless credits and trailers; there are nine 12 trailers in total however there are only basically 2 different ones. You get nine versions of one and three of the other. The only interesting extra is the Collaboration Manner Videos (Monogatari Series x Madoka)...... Now what the hell is that you may ask? Well, it's five mini cartoons lasting around 2 minutes each which have 'cartoony' characters from the Monogatari series telling the audience what not to do (smoking, talking etc) during the presentation of the film. These were obviously show at the theatre before the movie started and are amusing. That's all I'm afraid.

So, is this set to you worth the high price? Only you can answer that question and no one else.

And one more thing....... Despite the film having an ending, it's not an 'ending' ending as it's quite clear that there are more sequels to come.

Extremely crass (those who liked Ghost Stories would enjoy this), horrific in a Goosebumps for teenagers way, and surprisingly hilarious. Reads like a regular comic book (left to right). Each book is separate story by itself.

Great anime, sub par packaging
Great anime but the envelope packaging it comes in feels really flimsy and easy to tear/damage. Wish it had just come in a nice clipboard box with all the extras.

The Anime Is FANTASTIC...Packaging? Not so Much...
If you haven't watched Free! yet, then you absolutely must, especially if you like sports anime! The animations only problem is that the packaging is horrific...OMG if I didn't know better, it looks almost identical to what bootleg cases look like...I mean in my 800+ box set collection...this officially takes the cake for horrible...the printing is horrible, the picture isn't that well made...its just yuck...I really hope they decide to upgrade for season 2!!!
