I haven't seen this anime, but I heard that the show was okay at best, and a poor man's Madoka at worse.

Everything is a Madoka clone in the eyes of the kids who have only watched Madoka.

That kind of scenario is gonna happen. Sure it sucks, but some people are fanboys. Plus this series doesn't look that interesting to me, and this is coming from a guy who hasn't even SEEN Madoka.

I don't know who told you that, but regardless on whether it's a good series or not (it is good), it's by no means a Madoka-clone. If anything, it gets things better than Madoka (mostly the characters); the story and message are completely different, too.

Here's hoping this new project of YuYuYu is Season 2 or a movie. Smile

0.o Seriously? "This show I'm not interested in sucks compared to a different show that I haven't seen either"? Why would anyone even make such a comment?

That being said, yes there are superficial similarities... But YuYuYu goes off in a very different direction. It's not quite like comparing apples and oranges, but you'd have to be a fool to claim one is a poor copy of the others - especially if one has seen neither.

You speak for me as well, my friend. My favorite series of this decade so far.

The way I've taken to summing it up for people is that it acknowledges Madoka's perspective, but rejects Madoka's conclusions. Calling it a "Madoka clone" is a lazy comparison made by people who only looked at the superficial similarities in tone and style and couldn't be bothered to stop and think about the deeper differences in the story and characters. Shows don't become 10k sellers in Japan (as Yuki Yuna basically was) just because they remind people of Madoka - if that were the case then Day Break Illusion wouldn't have been such a huge flop.

Madoka clone or not (really it wasn't....just same genre), it still wasn't a very good or unique anime. Wasn't even executed really well.

hot dang, I just finished a rewatch of this yesterday so this is beautifully timely

i'm not sure where the series could go with a season two (unless they intend to have a new cast) but an anime of wasshio sumi is a hero or maybe a movie adaptation of the original anime is what i'm putting my bets on

but who knows! whatever happens, i'll be happy to see more yuki yuna

Yuki Yuna is nothing like Madoka. They are both magical girl anime, but have virtually zero similarities.

I've seen both, by the way - and while Madoka is a very special anime to me, I also enjoy Yuki Yuna for what it is: a magical girl series that sticks to the traditional friendship themes while still providing a twisted battle the girls must fight.

Whatever the new project is, I just hope it's something we can easily get access to translations for Smile

In cases like this, I'm never sure what to hope for... There's certainly headroom for a sequel, but they'd have to go with a new cast, and that can be a problem.

How ever, given the existence of the prequel LN's, I suspect that's where they'll go for a new anime season.
