English Teaching Textbook “Has Madoka too!”


Seemingly following suit to the “goddess” of anime, the stupendously popular Madoka Magica and its lovable magical girls have also appeared in an English-teaching textbook meant for Japanese students, although whether this will actually aid the not untypically abysmal English skills of learners is another matter.

Since her initial discovery, the infinitely adorable 2D English teacher Ellen Baker has seemingly exploded with popularity, prompting a reaction from her creator Denchubo requesting that artists tone down the graphic content of their artwork – a rather unrealistic request if ever there were one.
