Madoka Majika Undressed

Jun 29, 2011 @ 13:05 CDT


A new book floating around Akihabara significantly showcases the drawing manuscripts of all the cute magical girl idols Madoka Majika – alongside the intricate weaponry, and Kyubey.

The amazingly detailed drawings feature every aspect in relation to the inception of Madoka Majika – girls are sketched out in every angle, taking on different poses with extra emphasis on certain important areas, such as HomuHomu’s hairstyle.

All prominent characters are seen sporting their varying signature expressions, each character is portrayed in several profile sketches taking on different emotions they’ve undergone in the anime – along with their additional unique traits like ribbons or accessories laid out in sketch.

Of course it also takes attire seriously as that characteristic is one clearly defining the girls – each outfit is carefully detailed with shadows, appropriate depth, wrinkles, amongst all sorts of hypothetical elements and artistic principles were taken into account for their creation.

Adorable mahou shoujo heroine Madoka comes crafted on several pages with each page highlighting a separate important facet found in the actual anime series – the first of her pages come containing her schoolgirl style complete in seifuku dress alongside added commentary on the character profiles, layouts, and designs for further understanding.

Finally, the weapons are beautifully sketched out down to the last line – a complete close-up look at the refined blades, bullets, and innovative inexplicable items used to wreak havoc in the series.

Such a collective would of course not be complete without the indifferent incubator Kyubey who comes in available in all 4 or 5 of his different poses – along with a specific comment made by the artist on his not-so-friendly disposition; “Unless otherwise indicated, does not change facial expression or open mouth”.

    The art style in this anime is very unique, I’m too sure whether I liked it or not :S However, I do know I didn’t like the show itself.

      That’s a shame – it’s a great series. The art borrows from Hidamari Sketch and Bakemonogatari.

        I have seen the first episode. I have the next 2 episodes on my PSP, but I really don’t feel like watching it, since I didn’t really find it all that interesting. Oh well, I may continue watching the series on a later date.

          It gets good at episode 3, where it then begins to throw out shocking revelations multiple times per episode.

          But I agree, episode 1 was boring
