This year’s 49th issue of Kodansha‘s Young Magazine revealed on Monday that AZU‘s Magical Sempai (Tejina Senpai) manga will have a television anime adaptation that will premiere in 2019.
Fumiaki Usui (episode director for Chaos; HEAd, Spice and Wolf, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere II) is directing the series at LIDEN FILMS, and Rintarou Ikeda (Love and Lies, Hakyū Hōshin Engi, Love Tyrant scripts) is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Eriko Itō (Love and Lies, Poco’s Udon World) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director.
Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:
“I encountered her … a cute, but ‘weird’ sempai!” Magic-loving but stage-fright-addled, this sempai comes with a failure rate of 100%—but you can’t take your eyes off her! The off-color, magical gag manga that’s caused an uproar all over Japan is finally here! Here’s to non-athletic hobbies!
AZU launched the manga in Young Magazine in February 2016, and Kodansha published the manga’s fourth volume in Japan in September 2017. The fifth volume will ship on Tuesday.
