The cover for the first manga volume of the popular anime series “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” was released recently, and it features a quote, in English, from perhaps an unusual cultural source: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Magical girls and MLK.

The quote is: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Seems appropriate, doesn’t it?

The first manga volume will hit stores in Japan on February 12. No word as yet on an official English license for either the manga or the anime. (There are also two other manga series running, “Kazumi Magica” and “Oriko Magica”, which feature side stories in the same universe.)
