Puella Magi Madoka Magica News

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a franchise comprised of 3 movies, 1 anime series, 4 manga series

There was an official "most moe" character of the year poll that's been going on in an site called Saimoe that went annual since starting out as a thread in an random 2Channel thread (an Japanese version of 4Chan as presumed) and boy, was it crazy this time. Many characters were entered, but at the top 16, there were some real contenders. Here were the semifinalists and finalist...

Semi-Finalist #2: Kyouko Sakura (Madoka Magica)
Semi-Finalist #2: Kyouko Sakura (Madoka Magica)
Semi-Finalist #1: Humanity Has Declined&squot;s Mediator (Entered as "Main Character" in the poll)
Semi-Finalist #1: Humanity Has Declined's Mediator (Entered as "Main Character" in the poll)
Finalist: Sayaka Miki (Madoka Magica)
Finalist: Sayaka Miki (Madoka Magica)
Most Moe Character of 2013: Madoka Kaname (Madoka Magica)
Most Moe Character of 2013: Madoka Kaname (Madoka Magica)

Here were the other contestants from the poll and the bracket results:

Most of the Madoka Magica Main Characters ended up in the Top 16 along with some others from more recent anime series and movies, with best friends Madoka and Sayaka having to face each other in the finals after Kyouko and The Mediator were eliminated in the semi-finals. Hopefully next year becomes even crazier, even though this is the craziest that the polls have ever been.

Howdy everyone! Welcome to the first part of the Puella Magi Madoka★Magica news blog where I put together lots of old news from Crunchyroll. Given that we have two movies already aired and a third movie coming soon, there is a lot of hype and merchandise involved.

Merchandise

First off, it's the Madoka merchandise. Let's do the figurines and other misc merchandise.

If you're into collecting figurines, the Madoka franchise won't disappoint you.

For prices, check the Good Smile company link for the ultimate Madoka and the regular Madoka Kaname figurine.

Tea Cups and Scooters

In the misc department, we have tea cups and scooters.

The lithium-ion powered scooters cost 134,400 yen (about US$1676) each. Both can go at a max speed of 35 kilometers.

Manga

We got two cool manga spin-off releases in Japan.

Yen Press is the company publishing the new manga titles.

  • Puella Magi Oriko Magica by Kuroe Mura
  • Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice by Masaki Hiramatsu and Takashi Tensugi

Movies

We got cool posters that have amazing back drops of the cities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and France.

Then, we have back drops of Singapore, Korea, Japan, and US.

Also, we got character posters as well.

Now, we have a special film strip.

This film strip had been auctioned at Yahoo. It was sold at 1,080,001 Yen ($13,620).
