2nd Madoka Magica Production Note Book Archive to Be Sold
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The anime studio Shaft announced on Tuesday that it will sell advance copies of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica Key Animation Note Volume 1 archive book at Comic Market 81 (Comiket) in the Tokyo Big Sight event center from December 29 to December 31.
This is Shaft's second collaboration with graphics designer Milky Isobe to produce a Madoka Magica archive book. Puella Magi Madoka Magica Key Animation Note includes images from the science fiction television series' opening animation.
The production company Aniplex sold advance copies of Puella Magi Madoka Magica Production Note, Shaft and Isobe's first Madoka Magica archive book set, at Comic Market 80 in August with a limit of two books per buyer. The two-volume set included production materials and art by the design team Gekidan Inu Curry. The book went on general sale in September, but the store chains Toranoana and Gamers accepted a second round of pre-orders that shipped on October 20.
Aniplex's Comic Market 81 booth (located next to Shaft's) will also sell a Puella Magi Madoka Magica "original goods set," but the company has not yet provided details about the set's contents. At August's Comic Market, Aniplex sold a Madoka Magica karuta card set with a read-along CD, a T-shirt designed by Gekidan Inu Curry, and a B3-sized shopping bag.
Advance copies of the Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko Ex anime sketch collection will also be available at Shaft's Comic Market booth this month. The book will include images of the eccentric character Erio. Shaft produced the anime adaptation of Hitoma Iruma's Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko light novel series this past spring.
