So I had to work Memorial Day Saturday just for stuff, 8pm-1am, after I went home I marathoned Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
Keep in mind this series has been finished for a while now, though I still waited till it was entirely finished because I had heard the scenario writer was good old Gen and didn't want to get episode blocked by earthquakes.
I was pretty spoiled on certain aspects of it by then also, almost impossible to avoid on the JP blogs I read.
That being said all I did was cry a bunch while going through it.
Maybe not subtle, but they accomplished a lot in 12 episodes.
