The gates of the Madoka Magica Exhibition at the Tokyo Observatory in Roppongi Hills have finally been opened and it is safe to say that the exhibits presented can simply be called magical.

This may just be the first stop in the exhibition’s five-city tour but it has already generated a lot of buzz since it not only features a 2 meter statue of Goddess Madoka but life-size statues of the five magical girls.

The witch Charlotte greets the guests at the entrance with her mouth wide open… don’t worry, you won’t end up like Mami.
