Appearances are deceiving in “Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie — Rebellion,” an alternately enchanting and exhausting anime adventure in which cutesy characters and peppy vocal turns belie a darker, angst-ridden narrative. The third film in a cinematic trilogy spun off from a popular Japanese TV series (the first two pics simply condensed the show’s 12 episodes with a few tweaks and new material), “Rebellion” delivers a convoluted conclusion sure to prove beyond baffling to any franchise newcomers. Pic was a box office hit on home turf (where it was released Oct. 26), but its overseas appeal is strictly limited to those already under the “Magica” spell.
“Rebellion” presumes a healthy familiarity with the pre-existing “Magica” arc and its thoughtful, somewhat bleak subversion of anime’s “magic girl” genre. In one of the series’ primary twists, magic powers are obtained through Faustian bargains that ultimately cost young girls their souls. Locked in »
