Lolikitean Christmas had a hick-up, but I’m going to catch up, like no one ever has. The anime of the 17th is Magical Girl Madoka Magica.
After experiencing a bizarre dream, Madoka Kaname, a kind 14-year-old girl, encounters a magical creature named Kyube. Madoka and her friend Sayaka Miki are offered the opportunity of gaining magical powers if they agree to make a contract with the strange little being. He will also grant them one wish, but in exchange they shall risk their lives by accepting the responsibility of fighting witches. Invisible to human eyes, witches are catalysts of despair in the areas they inhabit. An ally of Kyube, a magical girl named Mami Tomoe, befriends and encourages the two girls to accept the contract. For an unknown reason, another magical girl named Homura Akemi is determined to prevent Madoka from accepting the deal.Genre: adventure, horror, psychological, science fiction
Theme: evil being, magic, magical girl, mind break, tragedy, wishes, witches

Anyway, there’s been time traveling, sliding, and general alien bullshit in a good deal of 2011′s haul. Madoka in particular had an impact on me, however.
This image just resonates somewhere in my fantasy fanboy database for some reason. Gears are kinda like wheels, and, well… Brian Saunderson’s got you covered.
