Magical Girl Site Anime Gets First Staff, Spring 2018 Launch


This is definitely one of those “would you like to make a contract” affairs, if you catch my drift.

The latest issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine (Issue 52) revealed several staff members attached to the Magical Girl Site anime, along with a Spring 2018 premiere window.

The series will be helmed by Tadahito Matsubayashi (Tokyo Ghoul: Pinto) at Production doA, with Takayo Ikami (Yurikuma Arashi, Beautiful Bones: Sakurako’s Investigation) taking charge of series composition.

Magical Girl Site is a spinoff from Satō’s Magical Girl Apocalypse, which ended publication on August 12. The ongoing title launched on the Champion Tap! website in July 2013.

Seven Seas currently holds the domestic rights to Magical Girl Site, which they describe as:

Asagiri Aya is a young girl who has fallen victim to bullies at her school. Looking for a way to escape her troubles, she looks to the Internet for distraction, when a mysterious website called “Magical Girl Site” appears. Simply viewing the page is all it takes to hurtle Aya headlong into the deadly world of the Magical Girl Apocalypse. There, it’s fight or die, against a seemingly endless array of savagely adorable, frilly-skirted killing machines, each armed with magical powers and an unquenchable thirst for blood and chaos.

That Time I Saw Nagito Komaeda At Whole Foods

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
