Plot Summary

Overcome by the pressure and grief of her life as a magical girl, Sayaka loses all hope. The light in her soul gem becomes corrupt and cursed, causing her to reach the final transformation phase and become a witch.

Unable to defeat the witch herself, Kyoko is saved by Homura and the two escape together, carrying Sayaka's former body with them. The two meet Madoka who breaks down at the sight of her friend's lifeless body.

As Kyoko takes charge of and preserves Sayaka's body, Kyubey arrives in Madoka's room and reveals his true intentions.

When a magical girl's soul gem is transformed into a grief seed, the process of becoming a witch, a large quantity of energy is released. It is Kyubey and the other Incubators who collect this energy and use it to stop the gradual decaying of the universe. His ultimate goal is to establish a contract with Madoka, leading to her eventual transformation into a witch, as she possesses the strongest magical power in the world and therefore the most energy.

Meanwhile, Kyoko, spurred on by Kyubey's words that it may be possible to save Sayaka, constructs a plan to save her soul. She believes that if Madoka calls out to her best friend, Sayaka may be able to free herself from the witch. Kyoko and Madoka form a partnership and confront the witch. However their plan fails, Sayaka is unable to control herself and brutally beats Kyoko. Although Homura arrives in the nick of time to protect Madoka, Kyoko stays behind, destroying her own soul gem and launching a final attack to destroy the witch.

Homura carries Madoka away from the battle and returns to her home. There, Kyubey explains his reasons for encouraging Kyoko. If all the other girls are defeated, Homura would be forced to face the powerful witch, Walpurgis Night by herself, a battle she would have no chance of winning. Seeing this he believes Madoka will form a contract with him, completing his ultimate plan...
