Shueisha opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Yone Sawata's Acro Trip manga on Thursday, revealing a celebratory illustration (pictured). The anime is set to premiere in 2024.

Sawata began drawing the comedy manga in Ribon Magazine in February 2017. Shueisha shipped the fourth volume on February 25, with the fifth volume scheduled to be released on January 25.

Thank you @Catalano for sharing this news with me!
I am so happy that mahou shoujo/magical girl series in shoujo manga isn't dead, and will probably give this series a shot in either medium :)

For anyone curious as to what it's about since there is no MAL synopsis atm, here's what ANN wrote in their article:
The comedy centers on Chizuko Date, an otaku girl who lives in a city in Niigata Prefecture. Chizuko is obsessed with Berry Blossom, the magical girl who protects the city. However, Chroma — the leader of the local evil organization Fossa Magna — is inept and weak, so hardly anyone else cares about Berry Blossom and Chroma's frequent battles anymore. Chizuko vows to shine a light on the magical girl's exploits — and this fervent desire takes this seemingly shy middle school girl down a dark path filled with strange folks ...

Thanks for the synopsis. Sounds pretty wholesome, will keep an eye on.

SHOUJO mahou shoujo? This is a rarity these days, the market is too saturated with shows for the male audience.

Admittedly one could argue that most mahou shoujo anime are marketed to a male audience nowadays, with the 2011 shift From magical girl to tragical girl, although mahou shoujo has always been somewhat tragic and dark. You could argue that after 2011 the genre became more male oriented, however even that's just a generalization.

Is Nanoha targeted towards a male demographic?

The subject of "male audience oriented" mahou shoujo anime is quite interesting, is it the violence that makes them male audience oriented? "male audience oriented" mahou shoujo anime, never could hold a candle for idol anime within the "hardcore otaku" audiences though.

Edit* Yeah, Edited the text somewhat, so just ignore what it said before this. Sorry for any possible inconveniences.

Oh, thanks for the summon Moz and thanks for the synopsis Fario. I saw it added to the database, but without a synopsis, wasn't really sure what was going on, but yeah this is promising. Stylistically reminds me of Hanako-kun from the teaser image and I'm def down for more of that aesthetic. :thumbsup:

You're very welcome! I'm very excited for the aesthetic as well as the show too. Never heard of this series beforehand but I hope it gets decent staff!

Oh....it's a Shoujo! I actually wanted to dismiss this, thinking it was CGDCT before actually looking at the thread, but since it's Shoujo, i'm gonna give this one a try! :)

Not only is Nanoha aimed at a male audience, it was one of the first to target it, and so strongly that people are said to have called the network's office and complained that "their show for little girls sexualizes women very much."

Oh is that so, that's interesting to hear. I suppose I will just have to see for myself, if these complaints have basis if I ever get to watching Nanoha.

Nanoha is a pretty infamous show in that regard. Not the sexualization itself, but the way people treated it. I still remember shippers reporting her male love interest illustrations as child pornography in order to get it removed.

But what does fandom discourse have to do with the contents of the show. What does this actually bring to this conversation. What I'm asking is, why bring this up?

Edit* I don't care for you wanting to paint some sort of larger than life villains out of vocal shippers. You just always seem to be bringing them up that's all.

Is the context not quite obvious, I asked about the show not the fans of the show. How would the fans of the show have anything to do with the contents of the show. Sorry if this is somehow confusing.

Edit* I just deemed that this had somewhat veered off the topic at hand.

My point is that the ecchi aspect of the show is mostly discussed in the context of fan controversy, not the show itself.

Nanoha's yuri bait is part of the franchise's ecchi element, so if you love this show, you're unlikely to scold it for it, regardless of gender or sexuality. It's like trying to find a Sailor Moon fan complaining about feminism on the show.

How is Yuri ecchi though? And again I will have to see about the supposed "ecchi" elements for myself, because as far as I can see the show isn't tagged as such. Although thank you for illustrating your perceived fandom discourse, even if I deemed it useless information.

You should not confuse ecchi as a genre and as an element of the show's aesthetic. Nanoha came out back in the days when any erotica was considered ecchi.

I guess we can argue about definitions for as long as we want to, however I will just have to see for myself. I am not denying that there aren't such elements in the show however, I will just have to see for myself as aforementioned. Yet I still think you somewhat dodged my question, it could be perceived as you describing the "lesbian baiting" as inherently sexual, or are you perhaps saying the ecchi elements derived from two characters of the same sex interacting. Although I think has somewhat digressed from the topic of discussion present at first.

Sorry if you've been wanting to get like the last word all this time, and/or are tired of this discussion.

I don't think it's possible to have the last word in the subjective definitions debate. And while I understand where you're coming from, no, queerbaiting isn't always sexualized. Conversely, Japanese homoeroticism often associates it with asexuality.

Ummm....soo....this thread got way off topic, but, in case it matters to someone, i just wanted to say this:

I once tried watching Nanoha back in the day when i was much younger and had very little anime experience (i.e. didn't know that anime could be degenerate....) I was very uncomfortable during the transformation scenes, because unlike in something like Sailor Moon, the body here was not undetailed barbie doll-like and covered up in sparkling light/colorful glow, instead, she was completely naked (her skin was....well, skin colored!) and then the way her clothes appeared on her (starting with the panties of course and getting a obvious camera angle of them) Made feel very much uncomfortable, the way the anime sexualized this actually made me drop it back in the day....

Thank you for elaborating on what was meant with the "ecchi" content, I couldn't really get a whole image from just the mention of it being there. As I expressed before I suppose I will see what the show is like if I ever get around to watching it.
