Production I.G animates series premiering this summer

The official website for the new television anime adaptation of Hiroyuki Eto's Mahōjin Guru Guru (Magical Circle Guru Guru) manga began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Saturday. The video first appeared during a stage event at AnimeJapan 2017 on Saturday.

The site also revealed the anime's key visual.

The anime will premiere this summer, and stars Konomi Kohara as Kukuri and Shizuka Ishigami as Nike. Katsuyuki Konishi will play Kita Kita Oyaji and Yō Taichi will play JuJu. Production I.G is handling the animation.

The new anime adaptation will not be a sequel of previous anime or an adaptation of the Mahōjin Guru Guru 2 manga, but will start with the story of the manga's first chapter when Nike and Kukuri meet in Jimina Village.

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 Mahōjin 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.
