Animation studio Tatsunoko Production has announced a TV anime of its property Nurse Witch Komugi-chan. The series, titled Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R, will air from January 2016 on NTV and other networks.
Whoooooooa, is there a sudden influx of franchises being revived, or what? This came out of nowhere. I mean, I liked the OVAs, but was there really a demand for this outside of my brother mourning the fact he didn't have fifty+ dollars on him to buy the (out-of-print) used DVD copy of the OVAs at a thrift store?
Besides, those redesigns. Why? I don't think the designs from 2002 were all that bad.
I'll still watch it regardless, since it's magical girl, but I'm bracing myself.
I'm personally excited to see this girl's performance. I met her two years ago at Anime Festival Asia in Singapore with her idol group when she wasn't even doing regular voice work yet. Glad to see that her hard work has paid off.
How I hate this new tendency on MAL then you just copy-past roles for staff/cast from ANN. They always post recently licenced things as examples even if they are shit and person has much better works.
But back on topic. I'm a bit disappointed they changed the MC for this. I liked original Komugi. But I'll check this out cause Kawaguchi can make a good comedy and I liked both Soul Taker and original OVAs.
