This book is the first of a three-part series of the official manga adaptation for the 2011 anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Each volume covers 4 of the 12 total episodes of the anime, with this volume covering episodes 1 through 4.
14-year-old Madoka Kaname is an ordinary middle school girl living in the fictional city of Mitakihara and goes to Mitakihara Middle School with her good friends Sayaka Miki and Hitomi Shizuki. One day, a new girl named Homura Akemi is enrolled in Madoka's class, surprising Madoka as Homura is the girl she saw in a disturbing dream that also had a white, cat-like creature. Homura warns Madoka about making a decision that will change her life forever, and they later meet again when Madoka finds the same cat-like creature in her dream being tortured by Homura.
Running away from Homura, Madoka and Sayaka get attacked by odd monsters and are saved by a 15-year-old Mitakihara student named Mami Tomoe, who introduces the cat-like creature Madoka saves as Kyubey. Mami Tomoe is a magical girl who made a contract with Kyubey to use magic to save the world from witches, some of which were the monsters attacking the girls. Mami offers Madoka and Sayaka to be magical girls, but before they can agree, Mami eventually gets tragically killed by a witch.
Mami's death scares the girls away from being magical girls. Madoka gets to know Homura and her magical girl life a little more, while Sayaka is having some trouble calming down her childhood friend, Kyosuke Kamijo, who had just learned that his broken hand may never heal again. Sayaka then becomes a magical girl to heal Kyosuke and later saves Madoka from a witch.
