Now that we at the start of spring, it’s time to share some interesting posts I found interesting from the past month.
If you recall in 2011, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica took a different spin of the magical girl genre focusing on the darker aspects. With that, similar anime series such as Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku and Mahou Shoujo Site followed the leader in the genre, especially the former. I have to admit that I still have to see the Rebellion movie and will do so someday.
Of course, the Madoka Magica franchise had two licensed games such as Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Portable and Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica The Battle Pentagram, which I reviewed. Besides these two games, there are actually a good number of mobile games based off the franchise as well. While they are only available in Japan only and short-lived, mobile gaming has evolved since then.
In 2017, eventually a new mobile game called Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Side Story, which released for iPhones and Android smartphones. It features new characters along with other magical girls from other spinoffs. Currently, there is a stage play and manga adaptation with an anime adaptation coming later this year.

If you have read my editorial on the popularity of BanG Dream and the changes in the Japanese video game market, Gacha games are wildly popular. While I have some mixed feelings with mobile gaming in the past, smartphones and tablets have changed substantially. They are now powerful to give good enough experiences.
