That Would Be Truly Wonderful (それはとっても嬉しいなって Sore wa Tottemo Ureshii Natte?) is the second episode of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. It originally aired on January 13th, 2011 in Japan and is produced by SHAFT.
The episode starts of with Madoka and Sayaka in Mami's house, while Mami explains how the soul gem gives her power, and how Kyubey can grant a wish's exchange. Mami tells Sayaka and Madoka that she will take them on a witch hunt, because it is a very hard decision, and it is also very risky, because a magical girl may die in the process of hunting witches.
They then discuss about Homura attacking Kyubey. Kyubey says that Homura intended to stop them from meeting, and they also speculaate it could be to avoid competition, since the victor gets the grief seed. This results in competition.
Kyubey comes with Madoka to school, where they discover they can use telepathy. Homura approches Madoka again later, and reveals she did intend to stop Kyubey from meeting Madoka. She failed, and restates her previous warning. Madoka asks Homura what her wish was, but she doesn't respond.

Sayaka's bat is turned into a mace. They wander through, and then find the witch, Gertrud. At one point, Mami appears to be unconscious, and Madoka and Sayaka are worried. Mami states she wont lose in front of her future students. She defeats Gertrud, and then picks up the grief seed. She explains what it does and then uses it to restore her power. After she uses it, she tosses it to a hiding Homura, and Homura throws it back, saying it is hers. She then leaves, and Mami and the others head back.
