CCS for the non-magic subplots.

>Which of these is your least favorite and why?
Tutu took way too long for me to understand what the central theme was. And I never felt particularly invested in any of the characters, the prince, especially. He was lame and how the fuck did he suddenly decide to be with the raven?

I'll be honest i love mahou shojou but I can't get into precure. i don't know where to start and i saw some gifs with terrible 3d product placement that turned me off of it.

I wouldn't mind being precurepilled. I've always been curious.

>>133711682
Just start with any season you think looks good. They are all separated, only FW Max Heart and Yes 5 GoGo are sequels.

>>
>>133711682
>3d product placement
If you're talking about the accessories and toys they sell for each series there is no way around that. Precure and plastic wands go hand in hand just like gundam and plamo.

But the metaseries as a whole is pretty good. Even if you don't like most of them there is bound to be at least one that hooks you. Also, even if some purists might tell you to start with Futari wa each season (except YPC5GG and Max heart) is completely self contained so you can really start anywhere.
>>
>>133711853
Heartcatch is the most recommended to be beginners but Fresh is my personal favorite and I think it's better then HC.
>>
>>133711878
alright thanks i'll give it a shot.
>>
>>133711853
FW or Heartcatch if you like fighting.

YPC or Smile if you want a sentai feel to it.

Go Princess if you want to watch it with /a/ (the currently airing one).

Fresh is also pretty good. It's the first of what some consider to be the "modern precure".
>>
>>133711345
>Pleiades saved the mahou shoujo genre
Not even close.
The last good mahou shoujo that not Precure was Jewelpet Tinkle.
>>
>>133711853
HeartCatch is the most safe option, I think. They're all good though.
>>
>>133711950
I can agree that pleiades didn't save the mahou shoujo genre simply because i don't think it really had much of an impact, it wasn't extremely popular, didn't sell well and i'd argue that mahou shoujo didn't need saving in the first place.


But it was very good.

Madoka is better than any of the other post-2000's late night MS anime - Nanoha, Yuyuyu, etc.

But I'm in the first few episodes of CCS, and man, I love it way more in different ways. It's comfy and feels like saturday morning cartoon, but it's well animated and has lots of great fights and designs. Sakura is cute and the characters are all likable.

It gets pretty dull once the real story kicks in. By episode 50 or so it's barely above average
>>
>>133712491
The real story is more boring?
>>
>>133712442
too much /pol/

>>133712491
I feel the opposite - a lot of the early episodes, while comfy, were forgettable and got boring, but once the plot and themes started really kicking in I got really into it.

Agree. Best Mahou Shoujo in a loooooooooooong time. Cardcaptor Sakura is the pinnacle of the genre. Tutu is up there. Please don't group Madoka with these shows. It's insulting.
>>
Quick I need more mahou shoujo in my life
Saint Tail
Shugu Chara or
Sugar Sugar Rune?
>>
>>133710333
It's hard to pick between CCS and Princess Tutu. Madoka was good, but it in no way left the same impression the other two did.
>>
>>133712623
>Sugar Sugar Rune
> two witches who are pitched in a contest to see who will become the new Queen of the Witch World. They must travel to the Human World and collect the hearts of humans

Sounds fucking metal. if you don't read the Title or see the artwork, and instead think of it as some sort of eastern european folk tail it seems like it'd be the set up a pretty dark story meant to keep kids in their beds at night.

"Don't wander out into the woods at night or else a witch will tear out your heart "
>>
>>133710333
I've only finished CCS and Madoka, and CCS is better. I'm finding it hard to continue watching Tutu though. 3 episodes in and it feels rather dull. Are people who like and recommend it the same as those who liked Utena? Because they feel similar to me.
>>
>>133712750
Tutu is really slow, it picks up in the second half though.
>>
>>133711682
This is the video that got me into it. It's outdated, but give it a go.

Princess Tutu. I loved the characters and atmosphere, and it was just really magical overall. It's a personal favourite of mine.

Madoka is my least favourite because I really didn't care about any of the characters, and some of it felt a bit contrived to me. Grim dark mahou shoujo with wide face also doesn't do it for me, personally. It was still alright though.
>>
>>133711950
What? Miria has a show?

I thought she was just a pile of lewd drawings.
>>
>>133713039
That's right the KMB, Knockout Marvelous Beuaty Miria is the best friend of the MC
>>
Cardcaptor Sakura is my favorite because the other two are shit and fuck you, that's why.
>>
>>133713039
Miria is amazing.
>>
>>133712278
Pleiades definitely wasn't bad, it was enjoyable show. Still, I expected more, the ONA was great.
>>
Princess Tutu is my favorite because I loved what it did with its concept and the metanarrative aspect and the direction it went in was so good. But I don't know if it's fair to compare it to CCS which is probably the most perfectly executed straight mahou shoujo. I would also say the CCS has a stronger start than Princess Tutu and is more consistent while Princess Tutu picks up as it goes along, but overall I think I got more from Princess Tutu. They're both excellent though, and I consider them among my favorites. Madoka was underwhelming for me, I didn't care about the characters at all and it felt like it spent a disproportionate amount of time on Sayaka which didn't really go anywhere comparatively important. I also felt that Homura's backstory could be seen coming a mile away and was pretty dumb and poorly executed. Not much of a fan.
>>
Madoka > CCS > Tutu.

I like them all though. Also, Sayaka is best.

>>133713921
It's not even a magical girl anime though? I mean, Madoka arguably isn't one either but it at least has certain elements, Wixoss is just girls fighting with cards that are also girls.

>everybody shits on Madoka because "suffering"
Just because it doesn't cater to the prime definition of a MS show doesn't mean it's shit, y'know.
At least, one of the anon above is right: it's not REALLY a Mahou Shoujo. Or at least, you don't write a Mahou Shoujo like a thriller.
>>
>>133714212
I enjoy suffering though, I just didn't like Madoka because it wasn't entertaining and I didn't care about the characters.

Shugo Chara is cool and spicy goodness. Third series is pretty bad though.

Love CCS and Tutu. I don´t see what is the big fuss about Madoka. When I finished, I could only think "That´s it?" It isn´t shit, but definitely not as great as people at the time thought it was.

This is an adventure/coming of age story that happens to have some magical girls in it.

I love it, but is not a magical girl show.

In the context of Mahou Shoujo, it will be remembered, as in, people on /a/ will bring it up when there are threads dedicated to Mahou Shoujo.

If you mean as an anime, as in the anime will be talked about in general, it's a bit more difficult to say. It depends on how anime will evolve in the future. If anime dies, it will be remembered as a classic. If anime goes full 3D, it may be seen as dated, but people who are able to deal with hand drawn animation will consider it a classic. If anime keeps going as it is now, it will lose relevancy, but will be remembered as an anime that used to be a big deal, and that will keep its spot in the recommendation charts, similar to how Haruhi and Slayers are now. If writing in anime gets better, it may be seen as something outdated from the dark age of anime, and will pretty much only be mentioned in threads about forgotten anime.

Princess Tutu because while it has it's dark elements ultimately it ends in a more positive light I would have said Madoka at one point but given the dilution of the franchise it's lost a little of it's luster for me.

Is there a TV mahou shoujo that doesn't end in a positive light?
