Coming to the Doris Duke Theatre for two days only, as part of a limited U.S. theatrical release, Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a condensed retelling of the hit anime series of the same name.
The not-so-typical story of Madoka Kaname and her choice to become a magical girl has taken the world by storm. One fateful day, Madoka is offered the opportunity to gain magical powers if she agrees to make a contract with a strange little being known as a Kyubey. The Kyubey will also grant Madoka one wish, but in exchange she shall risk her life by accepting the responsibility of fighting witches. Little does Madoka know the real risks of what this contract has in-store for her.
Winner: 16th Kobe Animation Award; Newtype Anime Award; Tokyo Anime Award
