Homura Akemi is a veteran magical girl, who first appears in the Madoka Magica anime as a vision in one of Madoka Kaname's dreams. Homura is first introduced as a transfer student at Madoka's school, who has the ability to travel back in time and uses this power to attempt to save Madoka from her fate as a magical girl. Due to the fact that Homura has traveled through many timelines, she is a model student and athlete.

Homura is revealed to be a magical girl after Madoka and her best friend Sayaka Miki happen upon fellow magical girl Mami Tomoe and the mysterious feline being Kyubey. When Mami is killed in a fight with the witch Walpurgisnacht, Madoka sacrifices herself in order to stop it. Homura's grief at the loss of Madoka pushes her to make a contract with Kyubey to grant her the wish of always being able to protect Madoka.

Homura is one of the most popular characters in Madoka Magica, winning Newtype magazine's anime award for the best female character. Homura's character always received widespread acclaim from both Japanese and Western critics. A large amount of merchandise of Homura has been created, including a Nendoroid figure by the Japanese toy company, Good Smile Company.
