In case you're wondering, the reason it's not just the Puella Magi franchise is because the Japanese titles always use Mahou Shoujo
instead of "Puella Magi". In fact, until being said out loud for the first time in the Rebellion
movie, the words "Puella Magi" only appeared in the English subtitle of each series.
