Magia Record Madoka Magica Episode 3 Recap

Despite being warned about the dangers of Kamihama City, Iroha heads there to look for her missing sister, Ui. Upon reaching there, she visits the Satomi Medical Center and discovers another Witch’s labyrinth. Luckily for her, she ends up running into a team of a few more magical girls there—Momoko Togame, Kaede Akino, and Rena Minami—who offer her help. When they reach the medical center, for some reason, they are not able to access it. All of the girls start forcing Rena to use her transformational magic to get inside, but she refuses to do so. This really pisses off Kaede and she starts arguing with Rena.

The next day Kaede realizes that she shouldn’t have been so rude to Rena and tries to apologize to her. But before she knows it, she gets captured by the Chain witch who only traps the ones who make an attempt to reconcile after marking their names on the Friendship Ending Staircase.

After Kaede gets captured by the evil Chain Witch, Iroha is taken to  Yakumo Mitama, who happens to be the group coordinator. She then goes up to Yachiyo and convinces her to them bring back Kaede. All the girls then write their own names on the Friendship Ending Staircase and because of Rena’s feelings towards Kaede, they are all able to lure the Witch again. After being takes to the labyrinth by the Witch, Rena meets Kaede and tries her best to reconcile with her after everything that happened. To her surprise, she ends up spotting Small Kyubey again. Soon, all of them team up and defeat the Witch and Yachiyo even suggests that the creature they just faced was a lot more than a witch.

Rena’s investigation of the medical center continues but she does not really get any leads on Ui’s disappearance. What she does find, though, is some information on Toka and Nemu, who has earlier appeared in her dream. In the meantime, Kyubey asks Mami Tomoe to investigate Kamihama City for him as he is not allowed to enter it.
