The official site of the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica just updated with a redesign. It now contains a video page with a new CM of the anime, featuring all four girls accompanied by background music samples of first, the OP song 「Connect」 performed by ClariS, and secondly the ED song, 「Magia」 performed by Kalafina. You can watch it by clicking here (CM8).
Note: It loads slowly so be patient!
Furthermore, both the Kalafina, and the Madoka sites have officially confirmed Kalafina’s Magia single release, which is set for February 16, 2011.
You can listen to the rip of the sample that’s featured in the video here (if the video doesn’t load for you).
thanks to Yuki88 for the info, and chrismellody for ripping the audio!

[EDIT 2] Yuki just metioned in her twitter account (1, 2, 3) that in the new season of Rekishi Hiwa Historia (for which she’s composing a new score, and will air in January 2011) there will be a new Kalafina song, titled 「symphonia」 used for the ending. We suspect that it’s possible that it will be the c/w song of the Magia single. But who knows? ^_^
thanks to Yuki88 and yuki_n!
