A first trailer for the forthcoming pair of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica movies have been uploaded on the movies’ official website earlier today. Oddly enough, the trailer has chosen to include certain scenes that may be considered by many to be spoiler territory.
If you have yet to watch the multiple-award-winning series, which was aired in Japan from January to April 2011, and are planning to catch up on the story through the two films, then it might be a good idea to avoid watching the trailer altogether.
Suffice to say, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is really not your typical magical girl anime series. Rather, it’s a parody to the genre, and as such contains scenes of mild gore – which you normally would not find in a mahou shoujo anime, due to its younger target demographic.
So watch the following trailer at your own risk:
Over at the official website you can also look at a TV commercial (in 15 and 30-second sizes) for the movie, that’s a lot less spoileriffic.
