Hardgore Alice, Calamity Mary and More Count Down To "Magical Girl Raising Project" Anime

Fall anime debuts October 1st

Maybe it'll be this season's Re:ZERO. Maybe not. Either way, if you're looking for the next light novel adaptation with an edge, check out fall's Magical Girl Raising Project anime, debuting October 1st. Asari Endou and Maruino's 2012 ongoing follows a miraculous social network game that gives girls a 1 in 10,000 chance of becoming a real magic girl. Except it produces too many, so the last 16 must compete in a merciless survival game. 

 

Hiroyuki Hashimoto, best known for his work 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 AprilThe Testament of Sister New Devil) and character designer Yukiko Aikei (Accel World, Your Lie in April). Lerche (Assassination ClassroomSchool-Live!) works on animation production.
