Madoka Magica remains one of the best magical girl franchises to ever make a debut, and the series lives on today. Following its smash debut, fans waited patiently for Madoka Magica to return to TV, and it did so with a spin-off not long ago. Now, a second season is on the way, and Magia Record has confirmed its U.S. premiere with a new trailer.
The update comes from Funimation and HIDIVE straight, so fans can rest assured that all is normal. As it turns out, Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story Season 2 - The Eve of Awakening - is slated to debut in ten days.
The price of a wish, is it hope or despair?
