From studio Shaft, the makers of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, comes yet another highly-anticipated mahou shoujo anime: Magical Suite Prism Nana. The story has yet to be revealed, but what we know for certain is that it will focus on three female elemental magic users (fire, earth and water).
At the Comiket 83 this past weekend, Shaft sold DVDs that included seven pilot shorts of the upcoming anime as well as its original soundtrack. The voice cast for the three main characters of Prism Nana was also confirmed.
Itaru Washioka (the red-haired girl on the picture above) is voiced by Suzuko Mimori (Nanami Momozono from Kamisama Hajimemashita). Kotone Oribe (the blue-haired girl) is voiced by Eri Kitamura (Karen Araragi from Nisemonogatari). Lastly, Asuka Asagi (the green-haired girl) is voiced by Asami Imai (Kojuurou Katakura from Sengoku Collection and Chihaya Kisaragi from The Idolm@ster). The original character designs were provided by Kantoku (Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko).
Aside from the confirmation of the cast, Nendoroid prototypes of the three main characters were also exhibited.
Although Prism Nana’s pilot shorts were already streamed on the net, the release date has not been announced yet. The project was initially revealed last August and it was showcased at Comiket 82 on the same month.
