Urobuchi said that Nanoha, Tutu, and Le Portrait de Petite Cossette were 3 anime that inspired him for Madoka. Has anyone seen Petite Cossette? I'm about to watch it.
Ha. Only deluded hipsters on /a/ think Tutu is in any way notable
I can't tell if you are joking...
Not joking, trolling, or what have you.
Didn't Shinbo do that too?
Any sauce for the Tutu influence?
It's balls to the wall crazy and has too many 5DEEP7YOU moments. Actually, the whole thing tries hard to be DEEP, I don't even remember if it was thought provoking or just pretentious There was lot of psychedelic travels though.
Cossette was his directorial debut, and it's as trippy as the witch labyrinth scenes.
Shinbo's debut was Metal Fighter Miku.
Didn't he do porn under an alias
Some of it was pretty good too. Yuuwaku is one of my favorite H anime
Gen said he never watched magical girl anime before writing Madoka.
I watched it in 2007, I think?
Don't remember much about the plot, but I can say that the soundtrack is excellent.
