On Friday, the official website for the Maho Shojo Magical Destroyers anime revealed a new key visual featuring more characters. The visual also announced that the anime would premiere on April 7.
The visual above shows the main four characters at the front – Otaku Hero, Anarchy, Blue, Pink, and Kyōtarō. At the back are the SSC members, with the leader SHOBON spreading his arms and Slayer next to him, among others.

Jun Inagawa develops the concept for the anime. Bibury Animation Studio will produce the series with Hiroshi Ikehata as the director. Daisho Tanimura will act as the screenplay writer for the project.
The opening song “MAGICAL DESTROYER” is performed by Aimi and the ending song “Gospelion in a Classic Love” is performed by The 13th Tailor.
This anime can express many issues an otaku, or even someone who loves anime, faces in a social circle (obviously in an exaggerated manner). But it is an interesting and amusing take on a social revolution.
