Magical Girl Raising Project anime director Hiroyuki Hashimoto posted a series of posts on Twitter on Saturday thanking different members of the staff of the project, and encouraging fans to read the original work. He concluded the posts by stating "As for the anime, a sequel hasn't been decided." He added that he hopes to enjoy the story along with everyone again someday.
Magical Girl Raising Project adapted Asari Endō's Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku light novel series, which is set in a world where a social game called The Magical Girl Raising Project allows one in tens of thousands of people to be a "magical girl" — possessing extraordinary physical capabilities and looks, as well as special magical powers that set them apart from the rest of the human race. But one day, in a district containing 16 magical girls, the administration announces that it must halve the number of magical girls to solve the problem of magical energy. At first, the 16 magical girls race to collect more "magical candy" than their competitors, but the rules quickly become twisted, and it quickly becomes a murderous battle for survival among them.
The 12-episode anime premiered in Japan on the AT-X channel on October 1, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Yen Press has licensed the original novel series and plans to release it starting in summer 2017.
