Hiroyuki Eto's fantasy gag manga previously inspired anime film, 2 TV anime series

The wraparound jacket band on the seventh compiled volume of Hiroyuki Eto's Mahōjin Guru Guru 2 sequel manga revealed the two main cast members on Saturday for the upcoming television anime adaptation of Eto's original Mahōjin Guru Guru (Magical Circle Guru Guru) manga.

The anime will star:

  • Konomi Kohara as Kukuri
  • Shizuka Ishigami as Nike

The anime will also have a stage event at AnimeJapan 2017 on March 25.

Eto's Mahōjin Guru Guru fantasy comedy manga ran in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine from 1992 to 2003. Eto then launched the Mahōjin Guru Guru 2 sequel manga on Square Enix's Gangan Online website in 2012.

Eto used his affection for early role-playing games to create the original gag parody manga. The adventures of Nike and Kukuri inspired a popular 1994-1995 television anime series, which in turn spawned a 1996 film and the 2000 television sequel Doki Doki Densetsu Mahoujin Guru Guru.

Eto debuted Buyūden Kita Kita, a spinoff about a comical dancing old man from the original manga, when Gangan Online launched in 2008. The series concluded in 2012.
