BBK/BRNK's Director, Studio Make Christmas Anime Special Sorcery in the Big City

Megumi Han, Ai Nonaka, Eri Kitamura star in NYC-set net anime premiering on Friday

The eighth episode of the Monster Strike net anime's The Fading Cosmos arc ended on Saturday with a video announcement for an original anime, Sorcery in the Big City (Itazura Majo to Nemuranai Machi or literally, The Mischievous Witch and the City That Never Sleeps). The 40-minute anime will debut on the YouTube service at 7:00 p.m. Japan Time on Friday, December 1. (The Monster Strike anime will take a break this week and not debut a new episode on the following day.)

The story is set in New York, which is lit up with Christmas lights. Tokyo Metropolitan Police officer Akari Kido is directing traffic while on her international exchange training program, when a witch-like character pulls a "Christmas Party" prank. Just before a runaway trailer truck smashes into Akari, a mysterious girl suddenly appears and shouts, "I'm going to protect New York and Akari!"

Megumi Han plays Akari Kido, Ai Nonaka plays Apple, and Eri Kitamura plays Liberty.

Daizen Komatsuda (BBK/BRNK) directed the anime at SANZIGEN Animation Studio (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova, BBK/BRNK, ID-0). Yoichi Kato (Yo-kai Watch, Aikatsu!) wrote the script with project planning by Teppei Sunamura (Monster Strike). Haruka Sagawa adapted the original character designs by POKImari for animation. Jin Aketagawa directed the sound, and Ryo Sakai composed the music. Nao Hirasawa produced the anime with mixi's XFlag Studio (Monster Strike).
