The official website for the television anime adaptation of Icchokusen Mōkon's Mahō Shōjo Ore (Magical Girl Ore or lit: I Am a Magical Girl) manga posted a teaser video and second visual on Friday. The website also announced the lead female voices.
The video features the song "Hachimitsu Flash -Kawaru wa ne-" by Magical Twin.
Ayaka Ohashi will star in the anime as Saki Uno (pictured left in visual above and below) and, as previously announced, Kaito Ishikawa will play Saki as a man. Similarly, Sachika Misawa and Wataru Hatano will voice Sakuyo Mikage (pictured right) as a woman and man, respectively.
The anime is slated for spring 2018.
The manga centers on Saki Uno, a high school girl and rookie idol who has a crush on Mohiro, her best friend's older brother. When Mohiro is kidnapped by demons, Saki hastily makes a shady contract to be able to transform into a magical girl, which transforms her body into that of a handsome man.
Mōkon published the manga in Fusion Product's Comic Be magazine in 2012. Fusion Product published two compiled book volumes for the manga in 2014. The manga received a new serialization in Comic Be in June 2014.
