Like last season, I’ll be reviewing them over two different posts starting with Inari Kon Kon, Chuunibyou Ren, and Golden Time…

Madoka Magica movie 3 LA premiere

On Tuesday I attended the LA premiere of Madoka Magica movie 3: Rebellion, at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Like last year’s screenings of the first two movies, this event was a lot of fun, although the movie itself left me with a heavy feeling of ambiguity…
