Demons invade humanity after being frozen in ice for millions of years. Akira, a timid boy, is tasked by his friend Ryo to merge with one of these demons in order to be able to fight back against them for the sake of humanity.
A creature named Kyubey offers Madoka and Sayaka a wish if they agree to become 'magical girls' and fight abstract beings called 'witches'. However, a magical girl named Homura is, for uncertain reasons, determined to stop this agreement.

Two high school girls, the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and much more calm Pipimi, do insane things and swear like sailors in this absurdist comedy filled with references and meta humor.
I have not seen such a mix of adorability and meaningfulness in my life before.
I don't usually watch slice of life shows, but the premise of this show seems so quirky I wanted to watch it anyway. Slice of life shows just seem to be completely lacking of much interest to me because who wants to see more of the everyday anyway?
Well, I'm glad to say that this show changed my mind. There's something about this show that makes the everyday fresh and exciting -- everyone has completely lovable personalites and quirks, and there's something humble about this show that's rare to see. We can all relate to the idea of being the average joe who just want to let things out more wildly in life -- like a red panda playing death metal to release stress.
By the way, death metal 10/10. I didn't listen to metal before, but now I do. I'll pray everyday to Red Panda Metal Queen for her musical genius. I want to go buy a plushie of Retsuko and create a video of that plushie playing hardcore death metal. But unfortunately, I'm too lazy.
Cuteness 100/10. My kokoro got hit 1000/10. Life is meaningless without Retsuko 10000/10.
