posted on 2012-08-08 01:50 EDT by Egan Loo
The second volume of Hounbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Magica magazine is publishing a piece of key visual art for Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Kōhen: Eien no Monogatari, the second Madoka Magica film, on Thursday.
The latest Manga Time Kirara Magica issue will also have the latest information on the film trilogy, interviews with the staff and cast, and a manga short chronicling the voice dialogue recording session for the first film.
Producer Atsuhiro Iwakami had revealed last November that the film trilogy will begin with a two-part compilation of the original television series, followed by an all-new film. Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Zenpen: Hajimari no Monogatari (Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part I: The Beginning Story) will open on October 6 at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 and other theaters nationwide. Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Kōhen: Eien no Monogatari (Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part II: The Eternal Story) will follow on October 13.
Manga Time Kirara Magica launched in June as the first magazine dedicated to the anime franchise.
Update: The second round of bonus items for advance tickets will go on sale on September 8. People can buy a ticket with a bonus poster for either of the first two films for 1,500 yen (about US$!9) at participating theaters. [Via Yaraon!]
