North American distribution company Section 23 announced via press release on Tuesday that Sentai Filmworks has licensed the 24-episode web anime series Magical Play.

The episodes are currently available for streaming on Crunchyroll (subtitled only), Hulu (dubbed only), and The Anime Network (dubbed only). Sentai Filmworks will release the series on DVD with both English and Japanese audio tracks on December 3 for US$29.98.

The story follows Padudu, a girl trying to become a renowned magical warrior. Armed with nothing but her untested magic and a fish she uses for both clothing and food, she sets out on her quest.
