Puella Magi Oriko Magica (魔法少女おりこ☆マギカ Mahō Shōjo Oriko Magika) is the second spin-off manga in the Puella Magi franchise. The story was written by Magica Quartet and illustrated by Chloe Mura, with the two collected volumes published by Houbunsha.

Although the first volume was initially intended to be released on April 12, 2011, the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, as well as the subsequent postponement of the last two episodes of the anime caused Oriko Magica to be postponed to May 12, 2011. The second volume was released on June 13, 2011. Oriko Magica was then licensed in America by Yen Press, with the two volumes released in English on July 2013 and October 2013.

Continuations of the Oriko Magica series are being published in Manga Time Kirara Magica, all illustrated by Chloe Mura and with collected volumes published by Houbunsha.

  • The first was titled Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Noisy Citrine, which focuses on Kirika and the reason why she became the person she is now.
  • The second was titled Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Symmetry Diamond, which focuses on an alternate timeline where Oriko never crosses paths with the cast of Madoka Magica.
  • These two stories were republished together in Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Extra Story, which was released in Japan on September 12, 2013 and will be released English in March, 2015. The collected edition contains a new short story titled The Last Agate.
  • A third continuation, titled New Contract: Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Sadness Prayer, began in Kirara Magica's November 2013 issue. A collected volume will be released in Japan on Feburary 12th, 2015.

[edit] Plot

Oriko Magica takes place in one of the alternate timelines, during the same time period (calendar-wise) as the original anime. It is one of the many timelines that occurs between timelines 4 and 5 of the anime. The plot revolves around Oriko Mikuni, a mysterious magical girl with a unique ability to see the future, and her partner Kirika Kure.

Symmetry Diamond deals with an alternate timeline where Oriko never sees two key visions she had in Oriko Magica, leading to a very different course of events where she never crosses with the cast of Madoka Magica. During these events, a new magical girl named Sasa Yuuki appears. The Last Agate is a 12-page short that takes place a little while after the events of Symmetry Diamond. Supposedly, the timeline depicted here is the usual timeline that takes place for Oriko's cast, with the timeline depicted in Oriko Magica being the irregular one.

Noisy Citrine and Sadness Prayer are both prequels. Noisy Citrine explains Kirika's backstory, involving a new character called Erika Mamiya. Sadness Prayer is set before the events of Oriko Magica, introducing a new magical girl named Komaki as well as several other new characters, and explaining how Oriko and Kirika met.

[edit] Synopsis

Oriko Magica Volume 1

Oriko, a magical girl with the gift of foresight, knows the fate that awaits all who accept Kyubey’s offer of supernatural powers. But when she is struck with a terrible vision of the future—of the devastation caused by a single, powerful witch—she decides to prevent the girl from becoming a magical girl in the first place. To draw Kyubey away from the girl’s potential, Oriko directs him instead to Yuma, an orphan who is all too eager to gain powers that will enable her to protect herself—powers that will ultimately lead to her own destruction...

Oriko Magica Volume 2

Oriko is determined to use any means available to her in order to prevent the destruction she has glimpsed in the future. Her companion, Kirika, has been useful in creating a distraction by murdering other Magical Girls, but Oriko recognizes that the time for diversionary tactics has passed—she must target the source directly and eliminate the threat. Little does she realize that her quarry has a protector who is as passionate about keeping the girl alive as Oriko is about seeing her dead. What future ultimately awaits in the eye-opening conclusion of Oriko Magica?!

Extra Story

Oriko's ability to see into the future led her to commit bloody acts in her efforts to forestall an even greater tragedy later on. But what if Oriko had met Yuma Chitose before she predicted the end of the world? Would she still have chosen to manipulate the young girl if Yuma had been no stranger, but a dear friend? Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Extra Story explores the might-have-been, and further explores Kirika's devotion to her beloved Oriko.
