Synopsis for Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Gaiden
It is rumored that if a young girl makes a deal with a white fairy, she will grant whatever wishes her heart desires. However, in return, she will become a magical girl and must risk her life to destroy fearsome and ferocious witches. Iroha Tamaki, a kind-hearted high school student from Takarazaki City, is living proof that these rumors are true. Armed with a magical crossbow and the ability to heal wounds, Iroha searches the labyrinths where witches hide and defeats them before they can attack humans. However, Iroha doesn’t remember her wish, and even Kyuubey, the white fairy herself, seems to have no idea what Iroha asked of her.
One day, Iroha hears rumors of a city where “magical girls can be saved” and she finds herself on a train at sunset to the city of Kamihama. Unfortunately, she discovers that the witches in Kamihama are much more powerful than usual. After veteran magical girl Yachiyo Nanami is forced to save her, Iroha vows never to return. But when a chance encounter with a little Kyuubey seems to trigger distant memories, she Iroha is forced to investigate the mysterious city despite the danger.
