posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The December issue of Kadokawa's Comp Ace magazine will end Pochi Edoya's manga adaptation of writer Asari Endō and illustrator Maruino's Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project) "survival action" light novel series on Monday. The final chapter asked fans to look forward to the manga's second compiled volume and the anime adaptation. Edoya launched the series Comp Ace's November 2014 issue, and Kadokawa released the manga's first volume (pictured below left) on June 26.
The original 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 novel of the series in June 2012, and it published the eighth novel in September. The eighth novel had announced that the novel series would get an anime adaptation.
