Baby Faze will release aurora reflective face masks inspired by Puella Magi Madoka Magica Movie 3: Rebellion. Pre-orders for the masks opened on January 14, 2022. The masks have a release window of May 2022. Each mask will cost 1650 JPY (approximately $14.45). [Thanks, Famitsu!]
As a disclaimer on the website, Baby Faze notes that these masks are not effective against all viruses or bacteria. The materials of these masks are not the same as on ones recommended for COVID-19 protection. The Madoka Magica face masks are made of polyester and polyurethane.
In total, there are eight variations of Madoka Magica face masks. Aside from the Soul Gems of the main five, you can also get one bearing Devil Homura’s mark, Kyubey, and the Law of Cycles.
They use Light Force technology, which means that the light reflecting off of the designs will appear as a rainbow. When no light is shining on the mask, it is difficult to see the design. This makes it easier for everyday use for those who prefer not to wear anime goods in public. Aside from fashion, the Light Force design is meant for those walking outside at night. They let drivers see you easier, similar to how a reflective vest works.
In 2021, SHAFT announced a fourth movie for Puella Magi Madoka Magica. This announcement was part of the franchise’s 10th anniversary. The movie, Restoration of Walpurgis, is still in development, and there is no news on its release window. It will be a direct sequel to Rebellion, which debuted in 2013.
The Madoka Magica face masks are available for pre-order from Baby Faze, and they will ship out in May 2022.
