When Kyubey explains entropy, he says it involves the net loss of energy, which is not possible in physics. What the term actually describes is the decay of energy to its base form - which is heat - and its subsequent scattering through space, until the system reaches equilibrium, at which point all energy conversion ceases until further external energy input.

When I first heard about this series,I have to say that a lot of people have been getting into it. I have to say that after seeing people dressing up as the characters at Anime Cons,this is a show that I wanted to see. After watching the series on crunchy-roll,I really wanted to own it. But after buying it on DVD,and watching it in English,it feels like watching it on Crunchyroll again. It has a great storyline,and the characters were amazing,and the dimensions where the battles take place reminds me of .hack//sign. But what this series reminds us that we should be careful on what we do. We all need to take responsibility on our actions,and never be reckless on what we do. I do believe that the Magical girls in the show have tried to be careful on what they do,and what fate they have. But however,this is one of a kind,and I think you all need to get this show,it's the best.
