However, this causes Sayaka to fall limp, as Kyubey reveals that soul gems literally contain a magical girl's soul, with their bodies becoming mere hardware. After Homura reunites her with her soul gem, Sayaka is approached by Kyoko, who tells her to try and live for herself, but she is ignored. When Hitomi reveals she plans to confess to Kyosuke, Sayaka starts to fall further into despair, rejecting help from everyone else.

Still believing there may be a way to save Sayaka, Kyoko takes Madoka to try and reach her, but in the end she is forced to sacrifice herself to stop Sayaka. Homura's past is explained, in which she came from a different timeline and became a magical girl in order to go back in time and prevent Madoka's death at the hands of a powerful witch known as Walpurgisnacht. When she eventually learned the true nature of magical girl, she spent several time loops trying to prevent Madoka making a contract in the first place. Back in the present, Kyubey shows the history of the magical girl to Madoka. Madoka laters sees Homura, who reveals her secret to her and decides to fight against Walpurgisnacht alone. With Homura outmatched, Madoka makes the decision to become a magical girl, wishing to prevent all the magical girls throughout history from turning into witches, becoming a god-like entity with no evidence of existing on Earth. As history is changed, Homura is the only one who remembers Madoka, and continues to fight against a new enemy in her memory.

Awed by her skills, Kyoko asks to become Mami's apprentice and the two soon become partners in fighting against witches. One night, when she is forced to fight against a witch in her family's church, Kyoko is spotted by her father in her magical girl uniform. Realizing the miracle granted by Kyoko's wish was just an illusion, her father goes insane, killing the rest of his family and himself. As a result, Kyoko ends up losing her illusion magic and her attitude to fighting witches changes. Feeling their ideals no longer match, Kyoko decides to stop being Mami's partner and leaves Mitakihara. Some time later, Mami ends up encountering Kyoko once again when she is brought in to interrupt a fight between her and Sayaka, who had also become a magical girl.

After the battle, Mami meets up with Kyoko, who reprimands her for allowing Sayaka to make a contract. Feeling guilty about allowing Mami to get hurt, Sayaka decides to stop being her partner, revealing to her that she didn't attempt to save Hitomi herself after she revealed she was going to confess to Kyosuke. Noticing Sayaka sink into depression, Madoka reveals to Kyosuke that Sayaka was the one who healed his injured hand. As Sayaka becomes conflicted by Kyosuke knowing the truth about her and runs away, Mami confesses her own insecurities to her to get her to change her mind. While Sayaka is grateful to Mami for making her feel useful, her hope comes too late; after the fight, her magic becomes exhausted and she transforms into a witch. Kyubey explains that it was because there weren't enough grief seeds to spread out among the magical girls.

After Mami recovers from her injuries, Homura approaches her about assisting her in facing Walpurgisnacht before Kyubey reveals Kyoko had died after exhausting her magical energy. As Mami starts to despair, Homura slaps some sense into her, telling her to accept her limits and live on. After Homura leaves, Madoka tells Mami about how she had secretly been friends with Kyoko and learnt a lot about Mami, before deciding to become a magical girl in Mami's stead.

In the seemingly carefree city of Mitakihara, Homura transfers into school and joins Madoka, Sayaka, Mami, and Kyoko, along with a familiar named Bebe, as they become magical girls and fight against creatures known as Nightmares that are formed from bad dreams. Together, they help stop a Nightmare created by Hitomi when her frustrations over not being able to see Kyosuke reach their peak. Over time, however, Homura starts to feel there is something amiss. Curious about the vagueness concerning some people's memories, Homura asks Kyoko to take her to her home town of Kazamino. When they try to take the bus there, they soon discover they are actually unable to leave Mitakihara. Homura urges Kyoko to keep what she discovered a secret, so as to not attract unwanted attention, whilst she herself recalls some of her true memories, realising this fake Mitakihara has to be the work of a witch, and sets off to find whoever created it.

Remembering Bebe as a witch from previous timelines she had experienced, Homura tries to interrogate her about whether the witch's barrier is her doing. However, she is followed by Mami, who engages in battle with her in order to protect Bebe. Although Mami doesn't believe Homura's words that Bebe is a witch, she does remember that the enemy she fights is different from the Nightmares, before Homura escapes with assistance from Sayaka. Whilst Bebe appears before Mami as a magical girl named Nagisa Momoe, Sayaka, who possesses all her memories, explains a little about her role in this world, cautioning Homura about pursuing the truth further before leaving. As Homura goes over the contradictions in her head, she encounters Madoka, who helps her realise some things about herself. After confirming some things with Kyoko, Homura comes to the conclusion that, since she is the only one who knows of both witches and Madoka, the only one who could've made the witch barrier is herself. This is revealed to be the work of Kyubey, who had placed a barrier around Homura's soul gem to prevent Madoka from taking her to the Law of Cycles, resulting in a witches barrier being created inside the soul gem, which Homura unconsciously grabbed several people, including Madoka, inside of. In order to stop Kyubey from trapping Madoka and taking her power so that his race can bring back witches into the world, Homura willingly lets herself become a witch.

Led by Sayaka and Nagisa, revealed to be the guardians of the Law of Cycles sent to restore Madoka's memories, lead Madoka, Mami, and Kyoko on a charge to rescue Homura, eventually uncovering the seal Kyubey had placed on her. Finally reaching Homura, Madoka manages to bring her back to normal and together they destroy the illusionary world and return to the real world. There, the true Madoka, along with Sayaka and Bebe, come to cleanse Homura and bring her into the Law of Cycles. However, just as Madoka reaches her, Homura grabs Madoka and tears her apart from her godly powers, using the power of her love to become a "demon" and rewrite the universe. Forcing Kyubey's cooperation, Homura creates a new world in which Madoka, Sayaka, and Nagisa are human again, rewriting their memories. Homura revels in this new world, whilst simultaneously fearing the day when Madoka will regain her godly powers and stand against her.

Just as Madoka decides to make her wish to become a magical girl, Homura gets ready to reset her timeline once more, but this time with a twist: she takes Madoka with her. Waking up in the new timeline, Homura finds out that Madoka remembers everything about her and the previous timeline, and she is determined to save her friends from their terrible fates. However, Madoka isn't the only one that remembers, as Kyubey tagged along on the ride back as well, and he is determined to have Madoka make a contract with him. Madoka plays along with Mami teaching her how to be a magical girl once more, this time hoping to save Mami from her death at the hands of Charlotte. Homura intends to win Mami's trust in order to help her, but Kyubey puts a quick stop to that by turning Mami against Homura before they even meet. This distrust leads to Mami keeping Homura out of the fight with Charlotte, but Madoka is prepared. Madoka saves Mami at the last second, and encourages Mami not to let her guard down. Kyubey releases Homura from Mami's binding, encouraging her to help save Mami. However, Homura's entrance on the scene distracts Mami, causing her to die anyway. Sayaka's hatred for Homura grows, as she is convinced that Mami's death was Homura's fault. Sayaka makes her wish to become a magical girl, intending to avenge Mami as well. Kyubey encourages her, intending to corrupt Homura's soul gem in order to force Madoka to make a contract. Homura attempts to befriend Sayaka, but Kyubey instead introduces Sayaka to Kyoko, encouraging them to team up against Homura. When the time comes where Sayaka would normally fight Kyoko, Kyoko attacks Homura instead, only for Sayaka to intervene and reveal their alliance, attacking Homura as well.

By night, however, she is a killer who murders magical girls after asking for their names. Hearing rumors about the killings and how all the victims are teenage girls, a group of magical girls — Arisa Narumi, Haruka Kanade, Chisato Shion, and Matsuri Hinata, the latter of whom is Suzune's classmate — investigate the city at night in search of clues. Chisato encounters Suzune that night and is killed by her, leaving Arisa in shock. After Suzune refuses to say why she kills magical girls, stating they are better off not knowing, Haruka and Matsuri retreat with Arisa, hearing from Kyubey about how Suzune is their natural enemy. The next day, Arisa recounts her past and how she met Chisato, and both Haruka and Matsuri attempt to talk with Suzune, but Suzune once again refuses to say anything. The day after, Haruka encounters a witch, which starts probing her memories concerning her feelings of hatred towards her sister. Meanwhile, Arisa and Matsuri encounter Suzune, who is planning on confronting Haruka, and engage in battle with her.

After Suzune defeats Haruka's witch, Kyubey appears to explain the magical girl system. After Suzune's departure, Kyubey shows Matsuri and Arisa visions of Suzune's past, where she was mentored by a woman named Tsubaki Mikoto, who became a witch, and thus Suzune inherited her pendant and began her hunt for magical girls. The next day, Arisa is seen truanting school, where she visits Chisato's home, meeting and running away from her father, thus recounting the event where Chisato told Arisa her wish; upon arriving home, Arisa breaks down, regretting the fact that she became a magical girl. The next day, Matsuri tries reaching out to Arisa, explaining that she used to be blind and made a wish to see, and that she doesn't regret her wish. Arisa, however, announces her intent to kill Suzune and departs, leaving Matsuri behind. That night, Arisa confronts Suzune in a dark alley, and they begin to fight. Meanwhile, while Matsuri debates on what to do, she is struck by sudden visions of past memories she once lost, before being approached by a mysterious girl in a magical girl outfit, who greets Matsuri.

A mysterious magical girl by the name of Kagari Hinata approaches Matsuri. Matsuri questions her intentions and realizes that she is after Suzune. When Matsuri attempts to leave to intervene in Arisa and Suzune's battle, Kagari knocks her out and intervenes in the fight herself, killing Arisa to get her out of the way. Kagari shows Suzune visions of her past, where Matsuri and Kagari were taken care of by Tsubaki, how the twins went looking for Tsubaki after she disappeared, and how Kagari, upon seeing Suzune with Tsubaki's pendant and learning of Tsubaki's death through Kyubey, became a magical girl to exact revenge on Suzune, taking away Matsuri's memories of how she met and became friends with Suzune, and altering Suzune's to make her believe Tsubaki's death drove her to hunt down magical girls. In the present, Kagari beats down Suzune both physically and mentally before preparing to kill her, but Matsuri intervenes, saving Suzune and confronting Kagari on her reasons for revenge. Kagari attempts to kill Matsuri as well, but is defeated by a combination of teamwork by Suzune and Matsuri. Kagari then pulls her last resort card, turning herself into a witch. Suzune defeats Kagari's witch and saves Matsuri, before preparing to leave Yunagi City. Matsuri, upon awakening, follows Suzune, who tells Matsuri to forget about her and live on. Matsuri swears she'll never forget Suzune, Tsubaki, Kagari, and Arisa and her friends, and Suzune thanks her, before committing suicide by destroying her own soul gem. Matsuri is later seen on the roof of the school, tying Tsubaki's pendant into her hair, as she heads out with Kyubey to hunt witches.
