Kentaro Sato’s manga Magical Girl Site, serialized in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion and with an anime adaptation coming in Spring 2018, revealed an originally-illustrated visual by Sato. The anime is about Aya Asagiri, a middle school girl who is bullied in school and abused by her brother at home. She finds a mysterious website called ‘Magical Girl Site’ and with the magic ‘stick’ she gains, she gets caught up in a ferocious twist of fate with other ‘magical girls’.
production doA, who produced Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?? Dear My Sister, will be in charge of the anime’s production. Tadahito Matsubayashi (Tokyo Ghoul OVA) will be handling the direction. Takayo Ikami (Penguindrum, Beautiful Bones: Sakurako’s Investigation) will be in charge of series composition.
The teaser visual shows the main character’s brother wearing pants and laughing. Sato, who drew this visual, commented that the brother is the most noticeable character and was redrawn from one of his scenes that stuck with the readers the most. Sato reveals that the brother’s pants will become an important item in this series.
As the first main visual is Aya’s brother instead of the main character herself, it means that he plays an important role in this anime!
