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.
The anime stars Kaito Ishikawa as Saki Uno (pictured left in image above), and Wataru Hatano as Sakuyo Mikage (pictured right).
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.
Itsuro Kawasaki (Rental Magica, Shining Hearts, Tsukiuta. THE ANIMATION) is directing the anime at Pierrot+. Yukiko Ibe (Nanatsuiro Drops, Jewelpet Twinkle, Onigiri) is designing the characters.
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.
