Description
From Yen Press:

When a new girl joins her class, Madoka Kaname feels she recognizes the mysterious, dark-haired transfer student from one of her dreams…a dream where she is approached by a cat-like creature who offers Madoka an opportunity to change destiny. Madoka had always thought magic was the stuff of fantasy…until she sees the transfer student fighting with the very cat-being from her dream! And just like in Madoka’s dream, the cat gives her a choice: Will Madoka become a Puella Magi in exchange for her dearest desire? What will be the cost of having her wish come true?

Alright, now I loved this anime, but the manga just wasn't the same. They changed a few things and it felt rushed. Also, sometimes it was confusing and even some of the illustrations were hard to follow ( especially volume 3 ) But the storyline was great ( it was the same as the anime ) and I'm pleased to hear that yen is publishing it in English. Hopefully they'll license oriko as well, which was quite good.

I don't know why they even bothered to make a manga.
The anime is of incredible quality, the atmosphere, the ambience, especially in the creepy parts (the worlds of the witches for instance) are ASTONISHINGLY well animated.
SO, watch it. Now.

And the final word :
I love Kyuubee...

The story is really faithful to the original but it REALLY drops the ball when it comes to taking advantage of the manga format. The contrast of everything is too dark compared to the anime, entire fight scenes are scaled back to one or two pages each and the whole story blatantly limits itself to the anime. (12 chapters, 12 episodes)

If you wanted to get into the series, this is a GREAT primer. Especially since you can slowly read and re-read things at your own pace. Otherwise, its nothing you haven't already seen in the anime.

Initially, I thought this series wouldn't live up to my expectations. I thought it would be a generic mahou shoujo manga, but this surprisingly deep yet breif series proved me wrong. I loved it and am glad that I took the time to read it.

The dark and gruesome mix of shoujo magic girls and horror is somehow satisfying--the author managed to make it work for me.

I was gorging down the chapters one after another nonstop, and finished reading everything in a few hours. I also watched the anime version, which I actually preferred. Anyways, the characters here all encounter HUGE twists that turn their lives into living hell/death. Very interesting read.

Of course, I have heard of the anime, but have never really seen it. The premise sounds surprisingly deep, and it is not a comedy. These factors will definitely raise this series on my list. Now, if only it were ecchi . . . bigrazz
