Stores List Short Anime for Mahō Tsukai Nara Miso o Kue!
posted on by Egan Loo
The retailers bk1 and HMV both list a short anime adaptation of Sai Sumimori's Mahō Tsukai Nara Miso o Kue! (Eat Miso to Become a Sorcerer!) light novel project. According to the retailers, AIC will produce the anime for online distribution, the Nico Nico Douga streaming service, and other venues.
The story of the upcoming light novel project 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 raised. 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.
The publisher Kodansha will ship the first volume of the light novel project on December 2 along with other projects with anime and manga ties, and the artist Shirō illustrated the volume. The story won the new author award in the 1st Kodansha Light Novel Bunko Awards. Kodansha has not officially announced anime plans for Mahō Tsukai Nara Miso o Kue!
