posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine revealed the cover of the June issue that lists that the television anime adaptation of Izumo Ito's Machikado Mazoku (Street Corner Demon) manga will premiere in July on TBS and BS-TBS.
Hiroaki Sakurai (Cromartie High School, Maid Sama!, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Keiichirō Ōchi (La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky, Hinamatsuri, The Quintessential Quintuplets) is supervising the series' scripts. Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Non Non Biyori, This Art Club Has a Problem!) is designing the characters.
The four-panel manga follows Yūko Yoshida, a 15-year-old girl who awakens one morning with demonic power, and is tasked with defeating a local magical girl. She has horns and a tail, but truthfully less power than an ordinary girl. She struggles to lift the "curse of a 40,000 yen (about US$365) per month living."
The manga launched in Manga Time Kirara Carat in September 2014. Houbunsha published the fourth compiled volume last October.
