Apparently, raising a magical girl means unleashing the horrors of mankind into the world.

Earlier today, the official Magical Girl Raising Project (Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku) anime website updated with a new promo video and visual. The 90-second teaser unveils the show’s first cast members, as well as the character designer, opening theme song, and premiere date.

The confirmed cast includes:

  • Snow White: Nao Tōyama
  • Ripple: Manami Numakura

Manami Numakura will perform opening theme song Sakebe (Shout).

The visual features a smattering of characters, set to a brightly-colored background.
