Cast as magical girls unique to the upcoming anime, & not in original manga

The television anime of Icchokusen Mōkon's Magical Girl Boy manga presented two cast members and their characters, as well as a new visual, at AnimeJapan 2018 on Saturday.

Kishō Taniyama as Magical Girl Eternal Dangerous Pretty

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Magical Girl Everything Crazy Beauty

The two "mysterious magical girl" characters, whose real identities are unknown, are unique to the anime, and are not in the original manga.

The original creator Mōkon drew the visual below:

The anime premieres on April 2 on AT-X at 10:00 p.m and on Tokyo MX the following day. A special preview broadcast of the first and second episodes premieres on March 25 on AT-X at 7:30 p.m. Crunchyroll will stream its co-production worldwide except in Japan and Greater China.

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.

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.

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 cast also includes: (pictured below 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

Ohashi performs the anime's opening theme song "NOISY LOVE POWER☆." STAR ☆ PRINCE, composed of the show's voice actors Toyonaga and Yusa performs the ending theme song "Garasu no Ginga" (Galaxy of Glass).

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.
