The scribbling witch's minion, whose duty is to be naïve. She is a lost familiar who was separated from the witch while playing alone, absorbed in her daydreams. She possesses the ability to transform humans into balls; a human who has been transformed into a ball cannot revert to human form until he bounces against the ground once for each lie that he has ever uttered.

In Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable

Albertine is finally revealed in Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable. She is shown to be able to create different Anja familiars by drawing them on the ground. An official article from Dengeki Playstation suggests that she could have come from the Anja familiar from Episode 5.

  • She only appears in the mysterious witches barrier "Fool's Barrier," which is unlocked by completing Sayaka's route. In the game routes, only her familiars are present.
  • She occasionally hides herself in building blocks. To make her reappear, just attack the building blocks in her barrier.
  • She may begin to cry when suffered attack. Your magical girl can't attack her when she cries without Negate Spec. Stat Effects(精神系異常状態無効) ability.

Trivia

  • In BD commentary for Episode 5, Anja was voiced by Aoi Yuuki (Madoka).
  • It is highly likely Albertine was a young child, judging by her mannerisms and how she is a scribbling witch as scribbling is something commonly associated with children all the same.
    • It may also mean that she became a magical girl around the same age as Yuma Chitose.
  • Albertine's name may come from Charlotte Albertine Ernestine von Stein, a close friend of Goethe who inspired several of his works, or Therese Albertine Luise Robinson, with whom Goethe shared many correspondences about translating Serbian folk songs.
  • Anja may be named after a titular character of the play Anja und Esther by writer Klaus Mann, whose most famous work was Mephisto, an adaptation of the legend of Faust. In the play, Anja and Esther along with two men live in a strange house, where they "indulge in melancholy thoughs, projects, and hopes". When a male dancer arrives at the home, Esther falls in love and leaves with him, while Anja stays behind and "remains 'trapped and safe in the place of the old'." Anja and Esther's intimate, homoerotic relationship before Esther leaves caused a sensation when the play was first released.
  • Albertine's minion Anja has a crown on it's head whilst the name Anja comes from German origin meaning 'grace' which may fit its royal imagery.
    • The name Albertine is also of German origin. Meaning 'bright' or 'noble' it is an ironic name for the witch. As she is someone who feeds off despair instead of being someone noble.
  • After Walpurgisnacht, she is the only witch featured in an anime whose name was not introduced in runes at her debut.
