What if you have a senpai who loves magic? But what if that senpai is too scared to go on stage and perform her tricks? Well, comedy ensues of course! This is the plot of AZU’s Magical Sempai (Tejina Senpai) manga, and it’s getting a TV anime adaptation! They even launched a new official website, as well as revealed a new key visual featuring the “Magical Sempai” herself.

Kodansha publishes the manga in Japan, and also releases it in English internationally. Here’s how they describe its story:

“I encountered her … a cute, but ‘weird’ sempai!” Magic-loving but stage-fright-addled, this sempai comes with a failure rate of 100%—but you can’t take your eyes off her! The off-color, magical gag manga that’s caused an uproar all over Japan is finally here! Here’s to non-athletic hobbies!

Liden Films will be animating the series, with Spice & Wolf episode director, Fumiaki Usui directing the anime. It will premiere in 2019, but unfortunately, the staff didn’t reveal any further information. It looks like we would have to wait a bit further for more details about this new show.
