Crunchyroll has announced at its panel at Anime Central that it will simulcast the Are You Lost?, Magical Sempai, Hakata Mentai! Pirikarako-chan, to the abandoned Sacred Beasts, and In/Spectre anime.
In/Spectre will debut in Winter 2020, and the other anime will debut in Summer 2019.
This year’s 21st issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine has announced that AZU’s Magical Sempai (Tejina Senpai) manga will take “around” a one-month break. Kodansha will announce the manga’s return once preparations are finished on the magazine’s official website and Twitter account.
The editorial department explained that AZU had previously taken a few breaks in order to raise a child (or children), but this new break will be in order to “stabilize the publication.” AZU will also be organizing their work environment in order to prepare for the upcoming television anime adaptation of the manga.
AZU launched the manga in Young Magazine in February 2016, and Kodansha published the fifth volume in November 2018.
A cast announcement has been made for the forthcoming anime adaptation of the Magical Sempai manga:
- Kaede Hondo is Senpai
- Aoi Ichikawa is Assistant
- Eri Kitamura is Saki-chan
- Rie Takahashi is Madara-san
- Daisuke Namikawa is Ma-kun
- Himika Akaneya is Sister
Fumiaki Usui is directing the series at LIDEN FILMS, and Rintarou Ikeda is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Eriko Itō is serving as both character designer and chief animation director.
Magical Sempai is scheduled to premiere on Japanese television in July 2019.
Kodansha Comics is listing that it will release the first volumes of Azu’s Magical Sempai (Tejina Sempai) manga and Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka’s Grand Blue Dreaming (Grand Blue) manga digitally on September 12, 2017. Kodansha Comics is previewing the first chapter of both manga.
Azu launched Magical Sempai in Kodansha’s Young Magazine in February 2016, and Kodansha published the manga’s fourth volume in Japan on September 6, 2017.
Inoue and Yoshioka launched Grand Blue Dreaming in Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine in April 2014. Kodansha will publish the manga’s ninth volume on October 6, 2017. The manga marks the first time Inoue is authoring an original manga work.
