These magical girls are wrapped up in the deadliest game of all. (No, it’s not PUBG.)
The latest issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion magazine includes new details on the upcoming Magical Girl Site anime adaptation. The publication includes several cast reveals, as well as information on the show’s premiere timing and intro theme song.
We break the details down below:

- Sarina Shizukume: Haruka Yamazaki

The show’s opening theme, which is untitled as of press time, will be performed by i☆ris. i☆ris is a vocal unit composed of the title’s major female cast members.
Magical Girl Site will première in April on MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS’s “Animeism” block. As a reminder, Amazon holds the exclusive streaming rights to all Animeism titles for the forseeable future.
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 Kentaro 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.
