posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The official website for The World God Only Knows anime franchise began streaming the commercial for the opening theme of The World God Only Knows: Magical Star Kanon 100% original video anime last week. The commercial highlights the "Kanon 100%" song by Nao Tōyama.
Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine began a three-chapter spinoff manga called Magical Star Kanon 100% in March. The manga reimagined top idol Kanon Nakagawa as a witch.
Nao Tōyama is reprising her role as Kanon Nakagawa in the anime version. The video anime also stars Kanae Itō as Elsie, Hiro Shimono as Keima Katsuragi, Miki Itou as Okada Manager, and Aya Suzaki (Tamako Market's Tamako) as new character Kozue.
Mitsuko Kase (Glass Maiden, Ristorante Paradiso, SaiKano) is directing the video anime project and Yuuko Kawabe (Anyamaru Tantei Kiruminzuu, Tweeny Witches: The Adventures) wrote the scripts. Akio Watanabe (Nurse Witch Komugi, The World God Only Knows) is handling character designs and Hayato Matsuo (Magic Knight Rayearth, The World God Only Knows) is scoring the music.
The video anime will be bundled with the 22nd volume of Tamiki Wakaki's The World God Only Knows manga on June 18.
