  • Michiyo Murase as Yukusukyuru, Cocona's pet. It can grow and shrink and show various facial expressions. It likes small spaces.
  • Kazuyuki Okitsu as TT-392, a robot seemingly created by Hidaka. It has various functions and is often used by Papika.
  • Saori Ōnishi as sempai, a third-year at Cocona's school, and a member of the art club.
  • Tamie Kubota as Cocona's grandmother, who lives with Cocona and watched her grow up.

The series will star:

M.A.O as Papika, a mysterious girl who appears in front of Cocona. She's always bright and active, but sometimes that fearless personality of hers gets her in trouble.

Minami Takahashi as Cocona, a second-year middle school student who lives with her grandmother. She's an honor student who serves as the class representative. Because of her cautious personality, she's unable to step foot into new opportunities.

The story is as follows:

How does the world look in your eyes? Papika and Cocona, the heroines of the story, hold the keys to open the door. When the two girls meet, their adventures in a different time and different overlapping dimension called "Pure Illusion" begin. Many things in Pure Illusion will stand in the girls' way on their search for the mysterious crystals called the "Shards of Mimi," items that are said to grant any wish. However, when the girls find themselves in danger, the Shards of Mimi shine, and they are able to transform.

Pure Illusionist is credited with the original work for the series. Kiyotaka Oshiyama (animation director for Space Dandy, Dennō Coil, Xam'd: Lost Memories) is directing the anime at Studio 3Hz (Celestial Method, Dimension W). Takashi Kojima (Your Lie in April, Kokoro Connect animation director) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director, and tanu (original character design for Tari Tari, The Rolling Girls) is the conceptual artist. Infinite will produce the series.

The series will premiere in October on Tokyo MX, AT-X, BS Fuji, and Sun TV.
