In January 7, 2011, Shaft and infamous anime writer Gen “Urobutcher” Urobuchi launched a magical girl anime. That magical girl anime would later change the landscape of the industry, and its title was Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Now, as the series celebrates its 10th anniversary, the anime’s Twitter Page has announced that the series is having a special 10th Anniversary Project. They even launched an official website with a new visual from original character designer Ume Aoki:
The website currently features messages from the original staff behind the anime, including Urobutcher himself, director Akiyuki Shinbo, and character designer Ume Aoki.
