    Magical Girl (film) Review Magical Girl is a RazorSharp Tale of Unintended

    Carlos Vermut states that there are some little parts in the movie influenced by the popular magical girl series Sailor Moon. However, in terms of story and dark style, they were highly influenced by the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Carlos stated he liked the story in Madoka, where there is no reward but punishment. He noted "I received inspiration from the dark part of that "Madoka Magica", not just imitating, but matching it with the image I was thinking and putting it in Magical Girl."
