This week the Aniplex+ online retail service in Japan listed the currently-airing Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side-Story with 13 episodes, distributed across five Blu-ray home releases. The first, fourth, and fifth releases will have three episodes each, with the remaining releases having two episodes each.
The first home release is set to be shipped out on March 4. Bonuses for the release’s first edition include an exclusive jacket illustration by Junichiro Taniguchi, a special booklet with four-koma manga by PAPA, advance ticket application for a special cast event in June, a serial code for an item in Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side-Story smartphone game, an original soundtrack CD, and creditless OP and ED footage.
Magia Record just aired its first episode last January 4. Anime News Network describes the series’ story as such:
“[The story] takes place in the burgeoning city of Kamihama. Guided by a strange power, magical girls gather in this town and battle with a new power drawn from witches. Iroha Tamaki arrives in this town and joins other magical girls to search for her missing younger sister Ui. Before long, Homura Akemi also arrives in the town. "If I can understand the mystery of this town, maybe I can save Kaname.
Iroha Tamaki becomes a magical girl with a wish to save her sister from illness. Madoka also arrives in Kamihama to search for her missing friend Homura.”
SHAFT will be animating the series, under the direction and script supervision of Gekidan Inu Curry. Junichiro Taniguchi returns as chief animation director, as well as Madoka Magica series director Yukihiro Miyamoto who will now be assistant director. Original work is still credited to the Magica Quartet aka director Akiyuki Shinbou, writer Gen Urobochi, character designer Ume Aoki, and producer Atsuhiro Iwakami.
