Machikado Mazoku, the magical girl anime by Izumo Ito, has been given the anime green light, it was reported today.
The manga, about two would-be mortal enemies who become friends, has been running in Manga Time Kirara Carat—the home of works like K-On! and Puella Magi Kazumi Magica—since 2014. There have been four collected volumes released so far.
Ito followed the announcement with a message of thanks to fans on Twitter.
Machikado Mazoku centers around a 15-year-old girl named Yuko Yoshida who, it turns out, is the member of a demon tribe locked in eternal battle with magical girls. Yuko fights one of those magical girls, Momo Chiyoda, and gets stomped. But then, in a twist, the two become friends.
