Mahō Tsukai Nara Miso o Kue! Fantasy Anime Short Posted

posted on by Egan Loo
Sai Sumimori's light novels inspire anime about magical miso

Japanese publisher Kodansha began streaming the entire 12-minute anime inspired by Sai Sumimori's Mahō Tsukai Nara Miso o Kue! (If You're a Wizard, Eat Miso!) light novel series.

The story of the light novels is set in a world where the existence of magic has been known for a century as a mysterious power to rival science. However, the discovery of MISO — the Material of an Impediment to the Sorcerer's Orders — made magic into not a special power, but a technique that can be developed and nutured. One morning, while Shōta Hacchōya (a high school boy attending a magic academy) was tasting miso soup, a princess of Majieeru suddenly breaks in. Majieeru happens to be the birthplace of magic.  

Makoto Bessho (Shangri-La) is directing the promotional anime at AIC, and Toy's Factory is producing the music. Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts, Koihime Musō) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Vocaloid composer kz (Hatsune Miu's "Tell Your World," Oreimo, Digimon Xros Wars: Toki o Kakeru Shōnen Hunter-tachi) is scoring the music.
