The official Twitter account for the Comic Alive magazine's editors announced in July that anime adaptations for five of the MG Bunko J light novel titles have been green-lit, including Hisashi Suzuki's Magical Warfare (Mahō Sensō). The announcement was first made at Media Factory's Summer School Festival 2013 event.

In this modern magic action story, Takeshi Nanase is an ordinary high school boy who has a somewhat dark past. Due to certain circumstances, he formed a "fake" couple with his childhood friend Kurumi Isoshima, but otherwise, he lives a normal life. However, one day, he comes across a girl named Mui Aiba, in a uniform he has never seen before, collapsed on the school campus. This encounters changes Takeshi's destiny completely. Mui tells Takeshi that she is a magician, and she apologizes, for she turned Takeshi into a magician, too. What Takeshi once knew as one world is actually two — the world where magicians live and the world where humans live.

Suzuki launched the light novel series in 2011 with art by Lunalia, and Media Factory published the sixth volume in August. Yū Ibuki has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene magazine since this year, and briefly listed the anime as premiering in January.

Update: Nobuhiro Okamoto will be playing Gekkō Nanase, not Tsuganashi Aiba.
