It was announced that "Mahou Shoujo Taisen" will receive a TV anime adaptation to start airing spring 2014.

"Mahou Shoujo Taisen" is a project created from a variety show for the Otaku "2.5 Chigen TV" (2.5 Dimension TV). The characters are the mahou shoujo that represent each local town in Japan. The characters that won from the second illustration competitions that were held on pixiv will appear in the anime. The studio is Gainax.

Besides a TV series, there will be two games, and there will even be a module for a software for a new year's card design.

Gainax animating Mahou shoujos should be nice to see.

So I'm guessing we will see these characters in the anime

Still don't know what it's about, but if it's like Madoka or Fate/Kalied, I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

this should be a good wram up for the new PGSM anime
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine"

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

I guess that because SHAFT got a goldmine from giving the Mahou Shoujo genre a shot, Gainax wants to take a shot now. Not that I mind, it sounds pretty decent to me, but personification character-based shows typically don't work out all too well.
I'll go ahead and give it a shot anyway, since I'm a fan of the genre and intrigued by the production.

personally, I don't expect much from this. I mean, they did a similar thing in Houkago no Pleiades, and that was a rather mediocre show.

And Jewelpet. And Sailor Moon. And every other mahou shoujo that ISN'T Madoka. Sigh.

I hope this isn't another male-oriented mahou shoujo with hints of fanservice in it like some other shows that recently came out. (Hi Fate/Ilya and Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou) I'd really hate to see this genre be overtaken by lolicon magical girl series.

I didn't forget any of those, I just feel like Gainax wants to give the genre a go specially after the Madoka shitstorm happened.
Of course, my guess can still turn out to be shit, and Gainax just wanted to make a Mahou Shoujo show for no particular reason other than it being Mahou Shoujo.

Chances are this will be male orientated at least from the pics that are posted on Pixiv, however it may not have fanservice and it's not going to be a purely loli show either, however there may be a few lolis that get in.

Jewelpet isn't all that popular among both Western anime viewers, I heard the toyline and anime was released in Europe and flopped, the later installments do have some marketing towards Otaku though (I seen official Dakimakuras of some of the characters).

There weren't just two, there were more than that (like Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, Iilya, Fantasista Doll).

I don't even remember there is much of any "shitstorm" for Madoka. A lot of wow's maybe though.

The key thing is that the mahou shoujo's are from the local towns. And if the local towns are from real towns in Japan, the intention would be clear: to promote the awareness and image of those towns, and possibly this will link to tourism and commerce revenues.

Although I must say that Gainax doing it does not inspire much confidence for me...but then the key visual looks pretty cool:

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

You do not have to watch it if there is gonna be fanservice plus I also doubt that it is NOT male-orientated as they are other mahou shoujo shows that centres around (female) children/teens are still currently airing.
