posted on by Karen Ressler
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it has licensed Makoto Fukami and Seigo Tokiya's Magical Girl Special Ops Asuka (Mahō Shōjo Tokushusen Asuka) manga. The company plans to release the first single volume on November 28.
Seven Seas describes the story:
When the Earth is threatened by the sudden appearance of undead creatures, a group of young women blessed with powers from a mysterious source rose to defeat them. Now, after three years of apparent peace, the same malevolent creatures have resurfaced. Five magical girls are once again conscripted to war as the Magical Girl Special-Ops force, to defend mankind from an unholy nemesis.
Fukami (Psycho-Pass script) writes the series and Tokiya (Teizokurei Monophobia) provides the art. Naoya Tamura collaborates on the military setting. The creative team launched the series in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine in June 2015, and Square Enix shipped the third compiled volume in July.
Square Enix streamed a trailer for the manga last year:
