Directed by Hiroyuki Hashimoto (Is the Order a Rabbit?)
The official website of the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Asari Endou's light novel series Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku/Magical Girl Raising Project today confirms its October 2016 premiere in Japan, and reveals its two main voice cast, Nao Toyama (Chitoge Kirisaki in Nisekoi) as Snow White and Manami Numakura (Hibiki Ganaha in The [email protected]).
Numakura is also confirmed to sing the anime's OP song "Sakebe (Shout)," and it will be released as her solo singer debut single. The song is now featured in a 80-second second PV introducing the 16 magical girls, but its legitimate YouTube video is currently region-locked for some countries including the US.
The fantasy action series has been published from Takarajimasha's Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! Bunko imprint since June 2012 and currently 10 volumes are available in Japan. Hiroyuki Hashimoto, best known
for his works for the Is the Order a Rabbit? series, is attached to direct the TV anime adaptation, alongside
series composition writer Takao Yoshioka (Your Lie in April, The Testament of Sister New Devil) and character
designer Yukiko Aikei (Accel World, Your Lie in April). Lerche (Assassination Classroom, School-Live!) works
on anime production.
