Madoka and Sayaka go out on another witch-hunting mission. With the experienced, gun-slinging Mami Tomoe to help them get the job done, what would possibly go wrong? Apparently, everything! Mami makes witch hunting look easy as she quickly takes down the witch named Charlotte, using only a few blasts from her weapons. However, before everyone can celebrate the victory, Charlotte reanimates and transforms into a huge caterpillar monster.

Suddenly, before Mami can fight or even run, the monster grabs her by the head and lifts her up into the air. Mami's struggling body quickly goes limp and is seen dangling in the witch’s jaws. In an instant, the monstrous witch bites off Mami's head and throws Mami's decapitated body up into the air before she devours it. In fact, you can hear the sound of the witch crunching on Mami's bones. Yeah, this is not your typical magical girl anime.
