YMMV / A History of Magic

Go To

  • Harsher in Hindsight: The Hope Spot in the end with all the Puella Magi uniting in magical girl Vahalla. It was, and still is technically a Heartwarming Moment. Then the next parts came out, revealing that the world is still lousy for a Puella Magi, it's only going to get worse, and, until the very end, Puella Magi would never see their human loved ones again.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The Puella Magi uniting in their heaven.
    • Related to that, Anne Frank finding out her father survived the Holocaust and published her diary.
    • Homura and Madoka reuniting.
  • Ho Yay: Cleopatra, in the end, acknowledges that Charmain was the only one to truly understand and love her.
    • Cassandra was heartbroken by Penthesilea's death, and Achilles accused her of caring more about her than her brother Hector.
    • Advertisement:
    • Diana and Athena. Diana claims that only Athena is allowed to see her naked.
    • Anne's heart flutters around Sarah the same way it does around Peter.
    • Ilsa is very handsy with Bertha, isn't she? It doesn't help that she took sadistic pleasure out of physically and mentally torturing Sarah, Lies, and Anne.
    • And of course there's Homura's love for Madoka requited in the end.
  • Tear Jerker: Homura talking to Madoka for the first time in years.
