Magical girl horror anime premieres in April, will stream only on Amazon Prime Video

The official website for the television anime of Kentarō Satō's Magical Girl Site (Mahō Shōjo Site) manga revealed the anime's main visual and character designs on Wednesday.

Yūko Ōno as Aya Asagiri, the main character who always wishes she were dead.

Himika Akaneya as Tsuyuno Yatsumura, Aya's classmate who possesses a wand that can stop time.

Aina Suzuki as Rina Shioi, a former information broker who pursues the mystery of the Magical Girl Site.

Yū Serizawa as Nijimi Anazawa, the center of the nationally popular "Inuasobi" idol group.

Haruka Yamazaki as Sarina Shizukume, the leader of the group that bullies Aya.

The anime will premiere on the Animeism block of MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS in April, and it will also stream only on Amazon Prime Video inside and outside of Japan. The anime will get a special television program on March 18 that will feature Ōno and Akaneya.

The anime will have 12 episodes.

Tadahito Matsubayashi (Tokyo Ghoul: Pinto) is directing the anime at production doA, and Takayo Ikami (Yuri Kuma Arashi, Beautiful Bones -Sakurako's Investigation-) is in charge of the series scripts.

Akita Shoten published the manga's eighth compiled book volume on January 5. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga and released the manga's fourth volume in English last December.
