     New Characters 

Oriko Mikuni

A mysterious magical girl. Her magic allows her to see into the future. Her first vision was one where a powerful witch attacks Mitakihara City. She is the mastermind behind the magical girl killings. Her wish was for a reason to live.

Yuma Chitose

A young girl that Oriko names as a potential magical girl candidate to Kyubey. Her wish was to heal a dismembered Kyouko, which grants her healing spells; her offensive abilities involve using her staff to cause shockwaves.

Kirika Kure

A "black magical girl", and a friend of Oriko. She's the culprit behind the magical girl killings. Her wish involved changing her formerly quiet personality to a more outgoing one, and it grants her speed-slowing magic.

She is the protagonist of Noisy Citrine, a expansion of the story.

     Returning Characters 

This section is only for tropes that appear exclusively in Puella Magi Oriko Magica. See here for character tropes from the original series.

Mami Tomoe

A magical girl veteran who is investigating the recent murders of magical girls.

Kyouko Sakura

A magical girl veteran who becomes an "older sister" figure for Yuma.

Homura Akemi

Madoka Kaname

  • Blush Sticker
  • Demoted to Extra: Makes only a two panel appearance in volume 1, though her role is expanded somewhat in volume 2.
  • Doomed by Canon: Since Homura's wish involves Madoka's survival and this is not the timeline depicted in the show, it is certain that she will die or become a witch, forcing Homura to reset time. The former happens as a result of Oriko's actions.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Oriko kills her via shooting a piece of Kirika's witch body out of the barrier, which impales poor Madoka in the torso in front of the horrified Sayaka and Hitomi. When the barrier is lifted, everyone sees what has happened, and Homura is driven to a Heroic BSOD.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls Homura out for only protecting her and refusing to help Hitomi and Sayaka, among others.
    Madoka: How can you act so calm about all this? Why? Why am I the only one you're saving? You've got so much power Homura-chan!! If you plan to let all the others die...then it'd be better if you didn't save me...!


Sayaka Miki

Hitomi Shizuki

  • Break the Cutie: Hitomi didn't know anything about Witches and Magical Girls in the original. In this one, she witnesses a particularly bloody attack on Mitakihara Junior High, gets caught in a witch barrier with her friends and other students, and then sees Madoka die horribly right in front of her and Sayaka. To say the kid's broken by that is an understatement.
  • Heroic BSOD: Suffers a HUGE one during the witch attack on her school, when she sees the lifeless body of a student inside the magical barrier. She doesn't look much better when she and Sayaka tend to the dying Madoka.

Kazuko Saotome


Masako Chitose

  • Abusive Parents: She treats poor Yuma like utter dirt by burning her head with cigarettes, as well as verbally and physically abusing her daughter in other ways. It's pretty unsurprising that the way she dies to a witch is actually cheered by most.
    • Oriko in Symmetry Diamond sees a vision showing that Masako's abuse will eventually kill Yuma if not stopped.
  • Karmic Death: Abuses her daughter Yuma horribly, and dies a pretty horribly gruesome death.
  • Half The Woman She Used To Be: How she dies, along with some Facial Horror to a witch.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Only shows up in the first chapter in one page being eaten by a unseen witch, and in some flashbacks being abusive to Yuma.
    • She appears (and is named) in Symmetry Diamond, where we see her face for the first time.

    Noisy Citrine and Symmetry Diamond Characters 

Erika Mamiya

A former friend of Kirika that runs into her again.

Sasa Yuuki

A magical girl trying to claim her own territory.
