Magimoji Rurumo Anime by Yowapeda's Watanabe Previewed in Video

posted on by Egan Loo
Advance promo for "magical slapstick comedy" premiering on July 9

An advance promotional video for the television anime of the Magimoji Rurumo manga by Wataru Watanabe (Yowamushi Pedal) began streaming on Thursday. The video lists some new cast members.

Shibaki: It is the love story of Rurumo, an apprentice witch who came from the demon world, and a good-looking high school guy.
Rurumo: Whose fault was it for me being demoted to apprentice witch?
Rurumo: This is the story of Rurumo, who is trying to be promoted back to being a witch.
Chiro: Magimoji Rurumo will start in July.
Chiro: I think that I'm getting a little bit excited.

The "magical slapstick comedy" begins with Kōta Shibaki (the #1 pervert of his school) and some magical tickets that suddenly arrive for him. Rurumo, an apprentice witch who was demoted from a full witch, is training with these tickets in the human world. Shibaki can use these tickets to grant wishes that Rurumo must perform as part of her training. The catch is that each used ticket shortens Shibaki's life.

The series will star:

Chikara Sakurai (Little Busters!, Naruto) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff (A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Little Busters!, Witch Craft Works). Mariko Kunisawa (Hatsukoi Limited, A Certain Scientific Railgun) is writing the scripts, and Kazunori Iwakura (Ai Yori Aoshi, Little Busters! Refrain) is designing the characters. Satoshi Motoyama (From the New World, Senki Zesshō Symphogear G) is directing the sound.

Mimori will perform the series' opening theme "Seiippai, Tsutaetai!" (I Want to Convey This to You With All My Might!) and Endō. will perform the ending theme "Futari no Chrono Stasis" (Our Chrono Stasis).

The television anime will premiere on July 9.

Wataru Watanabe launched the manga in Monthly Shōnen Sirius in 2007, before he started the bicyling manga Yowamushi Pedal. The first seven-volume Magimoji Rurumo series ended in 2011, and Watanabe then serialized the four-volume Magimoji Rurumo: Makai-hen (Magimoji Rurumo: Magic World) series from 2011 to 2013 in the same magazine. The latest series, Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei (Magimoji Rurumo: Afterschool Magic Middle School Student), debuted in Monthly Shōnen Sirius last June. Like Magimoji Rurumo, Watanabe's Yowapeda manga inspired an ongoing television anime.
