A girl dressed all in white tests out her magic after contracting with Kyubey. This girl, Oriko, seems to have a vision of a future where Mitakihara Town has been destroyed by a powerful witch. Oriko is determined not to let the town be destroyed, but she knows it's impossible to defeat the witch once it is released into the world. While pondering on how preventing this catastrophe is possible, she is struck by a second vision, where she sees a young girl who has a potential as a magical girl. She offers the information to Kyubey.

Some undetermined time later, a very young girl called Yuma Chitose is rescued by Kyoko from being killed by a witch, but not before her parents are killed in the same way. Upon seeing Kyoko fight, Yuma grows a desire to become a magical girl herself, despite many warnings from Kyoko. Kyubey, informed about Yuma by Oriko, approaches her in order to make a contract, but is stopped by Kyoko. Meanwhile, Kyoko teaches the girl how to live on her own, and Yuma reveals her troubled past - her parents were very abusive, which led her to have very low self-esteem and find herself useless.
