Stagefright Astounds in Magical Sempai TV Anime Trailer

Adaptation based on gag manga by Azu hits Japanese TV and Crunchyroll in Summer of 2019

While Assistant looks on with a bemused expression, Sempai prepares to unleash another astounding magic trick.


Abracadabra! Prepare for some hocus pocus, because there's a new preview video for Magical Sempai (known as Tejina Senpai in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the gag manga by Azu about a high school girl whose dreams of being a stage magician are hindered by her extreme clumsiness and stagefright.



The original Tejina Senpai manga is serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine, and an English language version is also published by Kodansha Comics under the title Magical Sempai. The Magical Sempai TV anime is directed by Fumiaki Usui and features animation production by Liden Films.

The main cast of Magical Sempai gathers, surrounded by loose playing cards and uncontrolled animals summoned from a top hat.

Magical Sempai will broadcast on Tokyo MX, Mainichi Broadcasting System, and BS NTV beginning on July 02, 2019, and the series will also stream on Crunchyroll as part of the Summer 2019 simulcast lineup. Crunchyroll describes Magical Sempai as follows:

“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!
