Often you find protagonists as good and heroic. or rebellious and anti-heroic. However, sometimes, we also get to see villains as protagonists. Since the story focuses on them, it gives us a deeper look into their personality.
Moreover, not all of them turn good and continue with their goals which might be world domination, revenge, or complete destruction. Gushing over Magical Girls is one such story where the main character becomes a villain even when she never wanted to be earlier.
On Thursday, the ninth volume of Akihiro Ononaka’s Gushing over Magical Girls manga was released. It revealed that the manga would get an anime adaptation. A teaser visual was also released.
The visual above displays the main characters from the anime. The members of Enormita, the evil organization are on the front and the three members of Tres Magia are at the bottom, coming out of a television.
As of today, no further details have been revealed which include the voice artists, the staff, the producing studio, and the release date. We will have to wait for some time until all or any of the above are revealed by the staff.
Akihiro Ononaka also shared an illustration celebrating the announcement.

The story of Gushing over Magical Girls is about a normal middle-school girl Hiiragi Utena, who is asked by a mysterious mascot to join as a magical girl. She agreed as she loved magical girls a lot. Unfortunately, her fantasies come down crushing when she realizes that she is recruited by an evil organization.
The story of good people turning bad or bad ones turning good is interesting. The circumstances that cause them to make choices are interesting to watch. Be it Helck or Overlord they often have something new to tell.
