Gen Urobuchi of Nitroplus to script all episodes of Shaft's Puella Magi Madoka Magica

The official website and Twitter account for Shaft's upcoming magical girl anime project Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica) has launched with more details about the projects.

Prolific composer Yuki Kajiura (Tsubasa, RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, .hack, Noir, Kara no Kyoukai, Black Butler's "Lacrimosa") is scoring the music, and Takahiro Kishida (Durarara!!, Serial Experiments Lain, Noein - to your other self) is adapting the original characters designs by Hidamari Sketch creator Ume Aoki. Gen Urobuchi (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Blassreiter, Fate/Zero) of Nitroplus is not only supervising the scripts, but also writing all of the episode scripts himself. The website also has more silhouettes of the characters and the original Aniplex teaser commercial that revealed the project.
