Madoka has a character song titled "See You Tomorrow" (またあした, Mata Ashita) while Sayaka and Kyoko have a duet song titled "And I'm Home".

I just found out that Homura and Mami don't have a character song (from this Puella Magi wiki page) like Madoka, Sayaka, and Kyoko do. Are there any character songs for Homura and Mami? If there aren't, why didn't they make one for them?

Added to clarify, by character song I mean

A song whose vocals are credited to the character or characters singing the song.

as per this question What is a “character song”?

    You could associate Magia with Homura since it's the most played track when Walpurgisnacht is about and Homura's goal (pre Ultimate Madoka) is it's destruction (Walpurgisnacht normally being the cause of Madoka becoming a Magical Girl) – Memor-X Jul 13 '14 at 22:26
  • I heard that too, but why they don't make any official song for them? – Darjeeling Jul 13 '14 at 22:28
  • probably because Magia wasn't sung by her seiyuu, the songs listed on the Wiki were sung by Madoka's, Kyoko's and Syayka's seiyuu, though this falls short as to answering your question which is why i've posted comments – Memor-X Jul 13 '14 at 22:32
  • No, but really consider this: Homura's character is too serious for a song. Mami… I don't know, maybe just nothing to sing about. – Hakase Jul 13 '14 at 22:38
  • @user1306322 Homura maybe too series but what about Moemura?(Pre-Anime timeline), also with Mami she doesn't seem to have much to sing about because she isn't given much screen time in the anime as she dies early on or has a bout of insanity in a flashback. she only has a bit of a bigger role in Rebellion (but still, duet with Nagisa?) – Memor-X Jul 13 '14 at 23:23

I'm not sure precisely how a character's "official" song is defined, but a "Credens Justitiam" is, in my experience, often associated with Mami. Here's one source that sites this as the case. Further, for a more speculative approach, this is the song that plays during several of the scenes involving Mami, and, likewise,

no longer seems to play in the anime after Mami dies (if memory serves me correctly).

Thus it would make sense that this is identified as her theme song.

As for Homura's song, the same source I listed earlier states that Homura's theme song is "Puella in Somnio" ("The Girl in the Dream"). Google searching "homura's theme" also will return several YouTube videos all of this song. As before, I believe this song is played most often (if not exclusively) in scenes directly involving or featuring Homura.

    A character song is one that is sung by the character in question. I agree that you could call "Credens Justitiam" a theme song for Mami, but it is not a character song, since the vocals are not done by Mami (i.e. Fukuhara Kaori). Contrast "Mata Ashita", which is sung by Madoka, and "And I'm Home", which is sung by Sayaka and Kyouko. – senshin Dec 12 '14 at 23:56
  • @senshin Gotcha. I figured this answer was too easy to be what you were looking for! Thanks for clarifying. – Secret Evil Radio Dec 13 '14 at 0:14

Yep, it's a late answer...

TL;DR Version

Character Songs

  • Madoka Kaname: Mata Ashita
  • Homura Akemi: Connect
  • Mami Tomoe: Credens Justitiam
  • Sayaka Miki and Kyoko Sakura : And I'm Home


I would attribute Credens Justitiam track as being Mami's character song.

The Connect track is Homura Akemi's character song.

Indeed, this is not obvious, because it shows Madoka Kaname throughout the video; This is actually the perspective of Homura in the original universe, before she wished to become a magical girl. She had watched her friends(Madoka, Sayaka and Mami) protecting the city from familiars and witches as magical girls. (Remember that Kyoko was introduced into the story only when Mami died...)

This is what consists of the video content of the opening Connect track.

The lyrics actually convey Homura's thoughts after she has lived through multiple time-lines and conveys that she will never hesitate to protect Madoka...

Also notice that it is played at the end of episode 12, supporting the fact that it is Homura's character song.
