Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Voice Samples Posted
The official website for SHAFT's upcoming magical girl anime project Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica) has added voice samples on Friday for Madoka Kaname, the title character as voiced by Aoi Yūki (Kure-nai, So-Ra-No-Wo-To, Yumeiro Pâtissière). The MBS station had just aired a new teaser commercial for the project during Thursday's showing of the togainu no chi -Bloody Curs- anime, and the commercial ended with an announcement of Madoka Magica's January 2011 broadcast premiere.
According to the commercial, Madoka is an kind, friendly, but ordinary second-year middle school girl. She wonders aloud what she should do if she can grant whatever you may wish through magic.
The anime features director Akiyuki Shinbo (Bakemonogatari, Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, Hidamari Sketch, Arakawa under the Bridge), series script supervisor Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Blassreiter, Fate/Zero) of Nitroplus, original character designer Ume Aoki (Hidamari Sketch), animation character designer Takahiro Kishida (Durarara!!, Serial Experiments Lain), and musical composer Yuki Kajiura (Tsubasa, RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, .hack, Noir, Kara no Kyoukai).
