Official: Madoka Bigger Than K-ON!


After grossing 1.93 billion yen at the box office, Puella Magi Madoka Magica has is now the biggest late night anime movie ever – finally knocking K-ON! off the top spot.

The third Madoka movie “Rebellion” has so far managed 1.93 billion yen in ticket sales and over 1.4 million viewers, narrowly beating the previous top-runner K-ON!’s 1.9 billion take.

Unsurprisingly considering the slaughter of the original series, Rebellion gleefully throws prior continuity out and reintroduces the magical puellae thought lost – and as the first entirely new entry in the film series has proven essential viewing for Madoka fans.
