The official website of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica television anime series announced on Tuesday that Mercedes Benz will showcase Puella Magi Madoka Magica electric cars at the 15th Japan Media Arts Festival in Tokyo from February 22 to March 4.
In addition, Mercedes Benz will allow visitors to test drive the "wrapping cars" for free. (Drivers must have a license to drive in Japan and a (free) Mercedes Benz Connected Card membership. They must also be 20 years or older, or have an accompanying guardian.)
The display celebrates Madoka Magica's Grand Prize in the Animation Division of the 15th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards.
