Puella Magi Madoka Magica began development after Akiyuki Shinbo expressed his desire to work on a new magical girl series to producer Atsuhiro Iwakami while they were working on Hidamari Sketch and Bakemonogatari.[2] During early planning stage, Iwakami decided to not adapt an existing work in order to give Shinbo more freedom in his direction style.[2] He then contacted Gen Urobuchi to work on the project as a scriptwriter and Ume Aoki as a character designer.[2] The series was announced in a commercial slot during the anime series Togainu no Chi.[3] Since then, more commercials have been shown in the same slot revealing the characters and cast.[2]
