Yeah there's none of that in Madoka Magica. It's not a show for tween girls to project themselves onto a protagonist, but very much a cerebral show with the trappings of a magical girl anime. I'm honestly not sure what it succeeds at being, cause it's not a show I would ever recommend to a girl looking for another show like Sailor Moon, since it might not be appropriate for a girl under a certain age and wouldn't give them what they were looking for anyway, but I guess it just succeeds at being itself. It's definitely a unique show.

edit: thanks, djchameleon; I'll have a look at the list.
And notice that Madoka Magica is second on that list, only losing out to a Hayao Miyazaki film, and who doesn't come in second to Hayao Miyazaki?
