Seven to Produce Magical Somera-chan TV Anime
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The June issue of Ichijinsha's Manga 4-Koma Palette magazine will announce on Wednesday that Japanese animation studio Seven will handle animation production on the anime adaptation of Choboraunyopomi's four-panel manga Magical Somera-chan (Fushigi na Somera-chan). The magazine also notes that the anime project will be a television anime series, and that Dream Creation is producing the anime.
The manga follows the daily life of Somera-chan, a wielder of mysterious magical powers, and those around her. The manga ran in Ichijinsha's Manga Palette Lite magazine until 2011, and Ichijinsha published two volumes.
The anime will be the third one based on Choboraunyopomi's manga, after Ai Mai Mi and Choboraunyopomi Gekijō Dainimaku Ai Mai Mi: Mōsō Catastrophe. Itsuki Imazaki returns from those two earlier anime to direct Fushigi na Somera-chan. Imazaki is also serving as scriptwriter, producer, and character designer.
