Your reaction is really fascinating, and I'm glad that you posted it!

Sayaka’s descent into angst-gasm was way too fast to be believable, as was Kyoko’s switch from “I hate you” to “I’ll sacrifice my life for you,”

Sayaka and Kyoko are mirror cases of a type I've met too often, and am grateful I avoided falling into a few years ago: people who pinned the entirety of their worth and identity on having an ideal to fight for, and consequently bounce hard to some other pole when the ideas they've previously put on a pedestal are challenged. (Although they're young and, if they were people, I'd assume they have a much better chance of growing out of that tendency than some of my acquaintances...) How I'd describe my own reaction to the show was "this makes too much sense, in an abstract way". The complexity and contradiction and detail-work I associate with real experience didn't come through for me at all in the narrative and major characters.
