The publisher describes Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Side Story as:

After seeing an unfamiliar girl in her dreams, Iroha Tamaki finds herself chasing a tiny Kyubey into Kamihama, a city where magical girls gather. What secrets does this city hold, and how will Iroha cope with life as a magical girl herself? A new story unfolds in this manga adaptation of the upcoming mobile game!
