    @blademan729: See what everywhere? Violent Magical Girl genre?


    I actually think about Dokuro-Chan when I think of Magical Girls that bludgeon things to death, not Madoka. And then the Magical Idol group from Samurai Flamenco <- actually they were my direct inspiration when I wanted to do an older looking lady, with no magic, smashing things with a stick that LOOKS like a staff. haha


    ((and magical girls with chainsaws makes me think of Korewa Zombiedesuka? before Madoka)) Madoka was dark and broody angst fest; It was a genre analysis, a statement about how dark and messed up the idea of little girls fighting evil with magic was. I'm sure it wasn't the first of its kind either, but magical girl anime isn't really my genre, so I don't know the history behind all of the shows that go in this category well.


    I was aiming for the comic violence with Ulrika hitting things. Not a dark satire of a genre. lol Either way, I wouldn't blame Madoka for the concept of violence and magical girls coming together.

    *couhg cough* normally the Magical girl was created firstly for be  read by Young girls  in japan. the original meaning of the M.G was pure and each time they give I hidden message for the Young girl (if we take mermaid melody tokyo mew mew) and before aprox 1997 this type of manga was EXCLUSIVELY reserve for this kind of usage but after 1997 it begin to publish a manga  who make Gore-dark style pretty violent magical girl (don't remember the name). After that other manga appear in this style like madoka. e.c.t

    so normally if we look better whe have two type of magical's girl's

    1. the shojo-magical girl (for the Young public
    2. The Seinen magical girl (for more aged public's)
    but a lot of people mix up the two type in one type : The magical girl's

    so is why a lot of time people think magical girl is weird and dark ~

    So nio dictionnary out~

    Then we get things like Sailor Moon which is decidedly more Shounen then Shoujo if you just look at it from a trope standpoint.


    But, thanks Nio. I knew Madoka couldn't be the culprit for the dark, broody Magical Girl style. It's just a popular title with that genre so it gets the finger pointed at it a lot. Yeah, there are some copy cats for it, but 'put a chainsaw in the hands of a magical girl' is the sort of thing it should get blamed for. (because it's not the same sort of series)


    Wow! I need to stop talking, this is an art thread. Here:

    @Dalph: Magical Girl Ylva is very happy to don the walls of your mighty and evil castle. That's which picture you meant, right? You aren't going to break her poor little heart telling her otherwise, right? Magical Girl Ylva is bouncing with excitement.


    @CorneredCosmos: An itty bitty little butterfly magical girl who have to save people using her magic to make up for her size sounds like a super adorable premise! :>

    First time I've drawn anything since... Well, the Armour Design Challenge. Been a while. Life didn't want me to.

    But when I saw this week's challenge, my mind couldn't stop pestering me with this particular idea. What if I took one of my project's characters and made her (despite her being about ten years too old for that job) into a Magical Girl?

    Warning: A bit of blood and lots of pink.

    I sincerely apologize to everyone who likes Magical Girl stuff and/or the colour pink and/or frilly dresses.

    Woohoo. I'm totally loving the submissions. I think you guys have done a pretty good job in staying away from the usual magical girl stereotypes, even though that's probably just me.

    But yeah, thanks everyone for the participation! And the poll is now up as well~
