posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
A second virtual YouTuber is joining Kizuna Ai on the magical girl horror series Magical Girl Site. The series cast Fuji Aoi from the popular Aoi Channel as a site administrator in the series' final episode.
Within the series, site administrators are the mysterious entities that grant girls magical weapons to fight. Kizuna Ai also voices one of the series' site administrators, named Administrator B (Okame).
Fuji Aoi covers topics related to music and film on her YouTube channel with over 114,000 subscribers. The character debuted in December. She gained attention this year after running a successful crowdfund campaign to raise US$100,000 for a character redesign. The campaign pulled in double that amount. Her creators revealed Fuji Aoi's "emergence" on April 26.
The anime premiered on MBS on April 6 on the Animeism block of MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS. The series streams only on Amazon Prime Video inside and outside of Japan.
Kentarō Satō launched the horror manga on the Champion Tap! manga website in July 2013, before moving it to Weekly Shōnen Champion last September. Akita Shoten published the manga's ninth compiled book volume on March 8. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English.
