This is not a direct adaptation, probably a good thing since the game is a cult classic at best inside Japan and is more popular outside of Japan.

As far as I can tell from the teaser's characters, this is not an direct adaptation of the original game. Or not?

Well, dunno if I'll still find time for the game, but either way at least there's a new magical girl show this year.
Not sure if I will try and watch this anime next season though.


Yeah at least its nice to see somethign that isn't another isekai with a jrpg style story lol. My schedule is pretty packed as well too so i have no idea when i'll be able to watch this show either maybe when i get through my most of ptw i may give it a chance.


Sometimes I think people expect to get $ 10 for every post whining about isekai, even if it's just another trendy genre these days.

Okay I just read some brief reviews of the game on Steam...
I don't think I'll play the game based on what I read (I don't even have a PS4 anyway), especially after seeing multiple mentions of fanservice... but sure, I guess I'll check out this anime sometime in the future and hope that the fanservice isn't as present lol. I'm too lazy to play anything anyway.
