Trust me… this isn’t one of those happy magical girl stories…
Earlier today, the official Magical Girl Site anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The 95-second promo offers a brief overview of the show’s core plot points, and confirms an April 2018 première.

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.
