Unfortunately, the whole “magical girl” thing does have a few downsides.
Earlier today, the official Magical Girl Site anime website updated with a new key visual and trailer, along with details on the show’s premiere schedule. We break the details down below:
The two-minute trailer offers a brief look at the show in action, as character dialogue drives the core story beats. Opening theme song Changing Point by i☆Ris and closing theme song Zenzen Tomodachi by Haurka Yamazaki are used as background tracks.
The new visual features the major characters locked in combat on a set of train tracks. The houses of a town frame the combat.

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.
