Idols, manager cast in Spring gender-swapping magical girl anime

The official Twitter account for the television anime of Icchokusen Mōkon's Mahō Shōjo Ore (Magical Girl Ore or literally, I Am a Magical Girl) manga announced additional cast members on Wednesday:

From left to right:

  • Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Mohiro Mikage, a top idol adored by Saki
  • Koji Yusa as Hyōe, a member of the idol unit Star☆Prince with Mohiro
  • Showtaro Morikubo as Konami Yamo, Saki and Sakuyo's manager

Ayaka Ohashi stars in the anime as Saki Uno (pictured left in visual above and below) and Kaito Ishikawa plays Saki as a man. Similarly, Sachika Misawa and Wataru Hatano voices Sakuyo Mikage (pictured right) as a woman and man, respectively.

Aya Hisakawa plays Saki's mother Sayori (pictured below left), and Kazuya Ichijou plays Kokoro-chan (below right), the mascot binding Saki and the others under a magical girl contract.

The anime's website previously streamed a trailer for the anime last month that features the song "Hachimitsu Flash -Kawaru wa ne-" by Magical Twin.

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.

Ohashi performs the anime's opening theme song "NOISY LOVE POWER☆."

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.
