  • Last Name : 暁美 (Akemi)
  • First Name : ほむら (Homura)
  • Age : ???

Brief Description

Homura is first seen by Madoka in a dream of her fighting a monster in a desolate landscape of skyscrapers. The day after the dream, Homura has transferred to Madoka's school where she gives her ominous warnings.

Fun facts

  • She is voiced by Chiwa Saitou
  • Homura is frequently referred to as "Homerun-chan" amongst fans, since both names sound pretty similar
  • The first character for Akemi (暁) means "daybreak", while the second one (美) means beauty
  • Her first name is written in hiragana, which has no special meaning. However, when written in kanji, it can mean:
    • inflammation, blaze (炎)
    • heart on fire (心火)
    • village protector (保村)

Random observations

  • She's willing to fight the good fights alone
    How Homura became Homerun-chan
  • She wants to stop madoka's contract
  • She has very strong reactions (anger or sadness) upon meeting madoka
  • She has full knowledge of madoka's school
  • She's never seen actually fighting a witch. In fact, she only seems violent towards Kyuubey


  • She seems like the antagonist, but might become an ally and/or mentor of Madoka's in the future
  • If the theory about witches and magical girls is true (see Speculations and theories), then it is fairly possible that Homura is on the brink of becoming a witch, which could be why Mami wanted to share her Grief Seed with her in episode 2
