The TV anime “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” started broadcasting on January 7, 2011. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the broadcast a new project has been announced. At the same time, comments from Yuuki Aoi as Kaname Madoka and director Shinbo Akiyuki have arrived.

“Puella Magi Madoka Magica” is an original anime title, all 12 episodes of which were broadcast from January 7, 2011. It showed a new magical girl’s story that started with a mysterious encounter with Kaname Madoka. At the time of the broadcast, it attracted great attention due to its cute character design and shocking story development.
In 2012, the TV series was edited and put in two anime films “Beginnings” and “Eternal”, and in 2013, a completely new work “Rebellion” has been released.

A commemorative website was opened with the start of the new project. A commemorative logo and a commemorative illustration by Aoki Ume, who drew the original characters’ drafts, have been released. On the commemorative website, festive illustrations by illustrators and manga artists will be released one by one.

In addition, happy comments from the original director Shinbo Akiyuki and Yuuki Aoi who played Kaname Madoka have arrived.

It has been 10 years since the impact of “Puella Magi Madoka Magica”. Please check out the follow-up report of the new project.

Director: Shinbo Akiyuki
It has been 10 years since “Madoka Magica” has been released as a TV series in 2011.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us for 10 years.
It would be great if we continue moving on again on the 10th anniversary!

10 years. Taking a look back, it was a crazy era. To the extent that an upright and immovable life-sized Gundam started to move. It’s getting harder day by day to recollect the everyday life of those days when there were no smartphones, apps, gachas, or Uber services. Still, the excitement of going to Shaft’s conference room for writing the script hasn’t faded. I am very pleased that our work has not been forgotten and that there will be a new project to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

Kaname Madoka: Yuuki Aoi
Thank you for loving “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” for 10 years. The crush I felt when I met Madoka 10 years ago and the various emotional things during the performance are still influencing me as a human being.
I’ve grown up completely, so if I look back on it now, I wonder if I will feel something new. I wanted to look back.
I would be very happy if “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” will remain in your hearts.
