season 3 already looks fantastic. Toei actually did it well.

>>139739603
I like it because I'm a Sailormoonfag but that's about it.

Yuuki Yuuna was the last good thing we got, and even it was too much of a madoka ripoff.

Pleiades was better

There was Pleiades but I thought it sucked. There's some Madoka x Hunger Games edgefest coming out this year. I dunno, your best bet is learn to love the Precure.

Sorry to inform you, but 3rei isn't mahou shoujo.

Original series was great though

This. No edgy suffering and lots of space exploring and cute romance. It was great.

I've seen sailor moon, unlike you, and also know that SM and Precure are not true mahou shoujo.

That's most mahou shoujo in general. Why watch a genre known for a mostly female cast if you're bothered by female relationships? Why do people who hate yuri wear yuri goggles? The great mysteries of the 21st century.

I seriously think an adult "magical girl" needs to be explored
>>
>>139745281
I like cute girls doing magical things, not cute girls doing gay things.
>>
>>139739513
how is Utena a magical girl anime
>>
>>139745266
Nope.
>>
Which is superior?

Magical girl gets attacked by a villain, spends a few minutes being chased and trying to escape, only to transform and defeat the enemy in one blow.

Or,

Magical girl gets attacked by a villain, transforms, puts up a fight with the enemy, and eventually delivers the final attack once she has the opportunity.

The second has a lot more action, but the first can be a lot more funny.
>>
>>139745667

>>
>>139745481
>I seriously think an adult "magical girl" needs to be explored
How's that mom one? Haven't watched it yet.
>>
>>139745667
An example of the top one is Akazukin Chacha. Usually Chacha wastes time trying to cast spells and failing, and then transforms into the Magical Princess. She then does one attack and wins.
I don't really like that, because her Magical Princess design is cool. But I typically only see her for one minute while she does her attack and that's it. And her attack is always the same.
>>
what's your favorite mahou shoujo?
>>
>>139746848
Doremi but I haven't seen too many.
>>
>>139746848
Sailor Moon and Doremi tied.
>>
Modern magical girls are made by men and for men. It lost its essence.
Shoujo magical girl is dead.. Shoujo authors are too busy writing about their rape fantasies

I guess Mai series doesn't call itself a Magical girl series. Pathetic.

It's all about shoujo fantasy now.

you're kidding, right?
>>
>1990s
>Mahou shoujo is for girls and mature men
>2016
>Mahou shoujo now the domain of lolicons

Then again, there were always loli-pandering mahou shoujo shows. See Cyber-Team in Akihabara.

It's still disheartening, mahou shoujo is pretty bad right now, precure is objectively trash.
>>
>>139746848
Sailor Moon, Doremi, Utena, and Cardcaptor Sakura are some of my favorites
>>
>>139746848
Utena, but I haven't watched Princess TuTu yet.
>>
>>139744560
I second this

stfu and just enjoy magical girls however you want it goddamnit

So uncanny. I'd rather fap to crossdressing kigus.

>>139749684
>>139753894
In his defence, apart from the monster-of-the-week like format and very minimalist transformation/entrance duel scenes, Utena is just a glorified fencing anime.

Sure, by broad definition Utena is a shoujo show with some magical elements, but it's not exactly the type of mahou shoujo like Doremi or Sailor Moon are.
>>
>>139756423
Utena is a sports anime with lots of budget saving.
>>
And if just having a stock henshin sequence makes it a magical girl series, then Penguindrum needs to be on the list as well.
>>
>>139745585
It's heavily inspired, so it's always on magical girl charts.
>>
>>139756744
The primary inspiration for Utena is sports anime as well.
>>
Am I allowed to call Symphogear a magical girl show?
>>
>>139748301

Reminder Mahou Shoujo is effectively defined by it's demographic. The best MS shows historically were always made by men, for little girls.

Edgy and/or Yuribait shows like Madoka are designed for otaku from the beginning and should not even be in the same category. If you enjoy that kind of things it's fine, but because they share a bit of imagery it doesn't mean they're anything alike.
>>
>>139745585
I agree with this. Utena is not a magical girl anime.
You aren't supposed to take the term literally. Slayers is not a magical girl anime, zero no tsukaima is not a magical anime either.

>>139756829
I think it is, but it's atypical, it only barely makes it.

>>139746848
Haven't watched that many, really. Perhaps Madoka. I am so /a/ core if I say this, but Princess Tutu was also great, and Cardcaptor Sakura. I don't know if this can be considered a magical girl, I am leaning towards not, but if you accept it, I also really, really like Magic Knight Rayearth.
Yuuki Yuuna, PSG and Moetan are stuff I would not consider top tier.
>>
>>139756947
>The best MS shows historically were always made by men, for little girls.
But the initial spark came from female authors
>>
>>139757012
Well, how about I just knock you flat on you're ass you troll, that sound any better to you? Just name the time and the place and I'll be there.
>>
>>139757203

In some cases, but it doesn't really matter. Sailor Moon never would have gone anywhere without Ikuhara, Sato, et all working on it, and most of the really influential shows prior to that weren't based on shoujo manga at all.
>>
>>139739513
magic knights rayearth a best
>>
>>139756829
Yuribait trash that stopped being amusing after season 1.
>>
>>139758524
I disagree, I liked season 2 even more. I love the series, I'd never call it trash. It's a favourite of mine.
>>
>>139758767
There are a lot of teen boys who fucking love bayformers but that doesn't mean it isn't trash

It's trash, dude. Even people that like it admit it is but still enjoy it.

You can say it all you like but again, I don't think so at all. It's a great series.
