One day, a girl named Homura arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning her classmate Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when Madoka and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one.
