Being meguca is suffering...

meduka meguca is a popular parody of the series, originating from /a/. It takes the form of a series of image posts, featuring cropped details of episode screencaps, with corresponding dialogue, retelling the original story in a humorous way, with intentionally misspelled character names and bad grammar. Every episode ends with a phrase "being meguca is suffering" (or a variant thereof in the last episode) which gained memetic popularity across English-speaking fanbase.

The parody builds on the fact that in the actual series, when characters are drawn from a distance, they often look off model (in fact, this type of parody had been an established meme on /a/ even before Madoka was first broadcast).
