Promotional art for Oriko Magica

Puella Magi Oriko Magica (魔法少女おりこ☆マギカ, Mahou Shoujo Oriko Magica) is the second spin-off manga illustrated by Mura Kuroe with draft by Magica Quartet. The first volume will be published by Houbunsha and features the return of Kyouko and Mami from the anime as well as new cast members.

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 has caused Oriko Magica to be postponed to May 12, 2011. The second volume will be released on June 13, 2011.

Promotional material indicates the story will be set after the events of the anime, revolving around Kyouko, Mami, Homura, and a new magical girl named Oriko. Madoka may make a vague appearance.

Translation of Official Site

Even though the TV anime ended, Puella Magi will not.
Who could be the girl that stands in front of Mami and Kyouko?
Stay tuned for volume one of the official spin-off comic "Puella Magi Oriko Magica", which shows another fight that was not depicted in Mami's, Kyouko's as well as Homura and Madoka's TV anime!!
