Seven Seas Licenses “Oops! I Messed Up and Made the Wrong Person Into a Magical Girl!” Manga

So, this is a magical girl who will ruin you and everything you hold dear… for love and justice, of course!

Earlier today, Seven Seas Entertainment announced that they acquired the print and digital rights to Souryuu’s Oops! I Messed Up and Made the Wrong Person Into a Magical Girl! (Machigatta Ko o Mahō Shōjo ni Shiteshimatta!) manga. The first volume will hit North American retailers and digital providers on October 9. The book will carry a suggested price of $12.99 ($15.99 CAD).

Oops! I Messed Up and Made the Wrong Person Into a Magical Girl! made its début on Shinchosha’s Kurage Bunch digital service in October 2016. The series currently spans three compiled volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on March 9.

Seven Seas describes the title as:

While searching for a brave candidate to become a magical girl and defend the world from evil, a mythical creature finds Kayo Majiba, a cute young lady who seems like the perfect fit. But when this newly turned magical girl proves to be a crude delinquent who goes berserk in a conflict, it becomes clear that this may have been a terrible mistake. Now evil—and any innocent bystanders—will face the rage of a magical girl gone wrong!
