Magical Warfare

The magical action series Magical Warfare began airing this month.

Sentai Filmworks took a liking to the anime adaptation of Magical Warfare, which only just began airing on Jan. 9. The publisher has acquired the anime and will release it soon through digital outlets with a DVD release to follow.

Based on a series of light novels, Magical Warfare will be a 12-episode action/romance anime series. Kendo enthusiast Takeshi Nanase is having a rough time as he feels his family and girlfriend are either distant from him or despise him. One day he discovers an unconscious girl named Mui Aiba, a magician who accidentally turns Takeshi into a magician as well. Takeshi learns that the world he knows is actually home to both normal humans and magicians. Two episodes have aired thus far, and they are available through Crunchyroll, simulcast on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. EST.

Sentai Filmworks has also licensed anime series such as Persona 4, K-ON!, Bodacious Space Pirates, and Devil Survivor 2. Mamoru Miyano, a prolific voice actor who can be heard in Free!, Ouran High School Host Club, Steins;Gate, and many other series, stars as Takeshi Nanase. Nao Toyama, heard inNisekoi, Eureka Seven AO, and Nobunaga The Fool, plays Mui Aiba. Madhouse (Highschool of the Dead) is producing the anime while taking art direction from Jirou Kouno (Phi-Brain).

Magical Warfare plays into several clich├ęs from the beginning with a collapsed otherwordly girl and a regular high school boy. The anime has a solid staff working on it, and Sentai Filmworks saw something in it to pick it up already.
