Directed by Itsuki Imazaki (Ai Mai Mi)
It has been a little confusing, since the first PV was posted as "a plan of April fool" yesterday. But the director Itsuki Imazaki today confirms that the anime adaptation project based on Choborau Nyopomi's four-panel comedy manga Fushigina Somera-chan/Magical Somera-chan is real, and is already in production.
The manga was serialized in Ichijinsha's Manga Palette Life from its 6th to 38th issue published in April 2011, then compiled in two tankobon volumes. The print editions are now out of print, and only the Kindle editions are available. The story follows everyday life of Somera Nonomoto who can use the strongest kenpo Nonomoto Mahou-ken which is inherited from her mother, with her younger sister Kukuru.
The anime adaptation is produced as the third part of "Choborau Nyopomi Theater" following the two TV
anime adaptations of the author's another popular manga work Ai Mai Mi. According to the director, he is
already working on storyboards, but the voice cast and on-air schedule are not decided yet.
