New review at Girls in Capes: Puella Magi Suzune Magica, vol. 1

Magica Quartet_Suzune Magica_1I’m really excited about this series!

Puella Magi Suzune Magica is a story of a magical girl assassin set in the world of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, a magical girl anime that aired in 2011. The titular character of the spinoff is a “magical girl” assassin in both senses of the phrase: she’s a magical girl who assassinates people as well as someone who assassinates other magical girls.

But Suzune isn’t necessarily the protagonist of the spinoff: the more important POV characters are Arisa and Matsuri, two middle-school girls who are part of a larger group of magical girls. And with the plot being what it is, I’m sure you can see where the conflict of the manga is going.
