I do wish I have something on topic to say about the match.
I'm excited to see what Magia Record anime would be like. I never thought to see Madoka since in terms of what they can do based on the anime is limited. Super opened up new avenue for Dragon Ball Mythos. Magia Record seems like it.

Taka, I'm excited for the Magia Record anime too, though Tart isn't from that. She's from a spin-off manga called Puella Magi Tart Magica, which takes place during the hundred years war between England and France. It's a pretty good read, though it does kind of expect you to be at least somewhat familiar with the anime series as it doesn't explain very much about the basics of how magical girls, witches and such really work.
Taka: There have been various extra media materials of Madoka Magica that have come out over the years due to the original TV anime's popularity with fans that include manga, games, and light novels. At least as far as what I've followed, this material's been side-stories, adaptations of the anime content, spinoffs, and sequels.
Not even gonna comment on this match since I'm not too read up on said extra media content beyond anime adaptations.

Dream , I'll be making respect threads for various Madoka Magica spin off character's in the near future, namely once winter break starts and I don't have to worry about exams anymore, so I'll give you a heads up when those are done. There are quite a few that are ridiculously broken, especially the final villain of Tart Magica
It was surprising to hear that given how immensely popular Madoka (it may or may not be the first to subvert magical girl trend but it certainly influenced dark magical girl series) was especially for an original anime series. Other than the movies, I wasn't aware of anything else until the Magia Record anime announcement and the mobile game that served as the original source material.

Taka, It's pretty surprising to me as well. I know a lot of people who adore Madoka Magica the anime, but I can count on one hand the number of people who know about the spin-offs. It's rather disappointing, because all of them keep up the trend of being very well written, and are a good, interesting take on magical girls. And every one of them maintains the combination of light-hearted fun and soul-shattering existential dread and despair.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
