Inspired by the original Puella Magi Madoka Magica television anime series, Houbunsha published the first volume of Puella Magi Kazumi Magica ~The innocent malice~ in May 2011, followed by the second volume in October. The publisher released the magical girl series' third book on March 12. Houbunsha has also published three volumes of the Puella Magi Oriko Magica side story manga. Both titles landed in the top five on Oricon's comic sales chart last May.
The model gun and accessory maker Dai-Nihon Giken sold 50 plans to make papercraft versions of the Magical Musket from Puella Magi Madoka Magica in February. Dai-Nihon Giken offered the plans on DVD-ROM for 3,000 yen (about US$39) each at the Wonder Festival 2012 [Winter] event.
The Puella Magi Madoka Magica television anime premiered in Japan in January 2011, and the manga adaptation debuted the next month. Houbunsha will launch Manga Time Kirara Magica, a magazine dedicated to the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise , on June 8.
