posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the television anime adaptation of AZU's Magical Sempai (Tejina Senpai) manga revealed on Tuesday that the anime will have 12 episodes. The anime will have one Blu-ray Disc box in Japan that will ship on December 3.
Fumiaki Usui (episode director for Chaos;HEAd, Spice and Wolf, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere II) is directing the series at Liden Films, and Rintarou Ikeda (Love and Lies, Hakyū Hōshin Engi, Love Tyrant scripts) is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Eriko Itō (Love and Lies, Poco's Udon World) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Minori Suzuki performs the show's ending theme song.
Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:
“I encountered her … a cute, but 'weird' sempai!” Magic-loving but stage-fright-addled, this sempai comes with a failure rate of 100%—but you can't take your eyes off her! The off-color, magical gag manga that's caused an uproar all over Japan is finally here! Here's to non-athletic hobbies!
Azu launched the manga in Young Magazine in February 2016.
