The wraparound jacket band of Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku ACES (The Magical Girl Raising Project ACES), the eighth volume of Asari Endō's Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku "survival action" light novel series, is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation has been green-lit. The announcement does not specify the format of the adaptation.
The novels are set in a world where a social game called The Magical Girl Raising Project allows one in tens of thousands of people to be a "magical girl" — possessing extraordinary physical capabilities and looks, as well as special magical powers that set them apart from the rest of the human race. But one day, in a district containing 16 magical girls, the administration announces that it must halve the number of magical girls to solve the problem of magical energy. At first, the 16 magical girls race to collect more "magical candy" than their competitors, but the rules quickly become twisted, and it quickly becomes a murderous battle for survival among them.
Takarajimasha published the first volume of Endō's Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku light novel series with art by Maruino in June 2012. It published the seventh volume, titled Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku JOKERS, on August 9.
