# Deconstructive, codified by ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Debunking the very concept of a world where young girls are forced to confront evil as a CrapsaccharineWorld and delving deep into the psychology of its cast, often with religious or philosophical references. Often borders on SurrealHorror territory; ''Madoka'' itself was considered the equivalent of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' [[GenreDeconstruction for the genre]]. Other notable examples include ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni'', and ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero''. Please note that here is a minority opinion according to which these kind of shows are only simply DarkerAndEdgier [[NotADeconstruction instead of deconstructive]], as its advocates don't deem the emphasis on drama, mostly in form of cute little girls being killed by gruesome monsters, to be realistic in a plausible or otherwise noteworthy way.

* ''[[http://tapastic.com/series/apricot-cookies Apricot Cookies]]'' is a DeconstructiveParody of the genre. It chronicles the life, loves, and laundry of the titular heroine, the only magical girl in Japan who can't transform. It also deconstructs many other anime tropes and even some from general fiction.
