The wraparound jacket on the second volume of Tomohiro Matsu's Märchen Mädchen light novels, which goes on sale on Tuesday, has announced an anime project based on the series.
Shueisha began publishing Märchen Mädchen under its Dash X Bunko imprint in February. The magic fantasy series, whose story is based on original plans drafted by Matsu prior to his death in 2016, features character illustrations by Kantoku.
When the two girls meet, magic begins. Hazuki Kagimura loves stories, an orthodox girl who is overly imaginative. Because her relationship with her new family does not go well, the environment sends her toward the stories in which she spends her days. One day after school, Hazuki gets lost among the bookcases of the library, leading her to a mysterious school where meets Shizuka Tsuchimikado. It is a magic school where girls (called "mädchen") are selected by the magical texts from which the world's stories are born. Hazuki herself is said to be chosen by the book of Cinderella. In order to become a true magician, Hazuki becomes friends with Shizuka and begins her new life at the school.
