Majokko Classical (Ufotable x Starchild) - Theatrical Anime

http://majocco.jp/

Ufotable and Starchild announced this new theatrical anime project at Machi Asobi today. It's a traditional magic and fantasy story about two witch sisters, and it looks really retro. Could be fun! It will be released in 2013.

I hope for the best.. Retro anime ain't that bad, it's the plot that counts...

Note: Weird I found many Majokkos on the web.. while searching...

It basically looks like mahou shoujo was, prior to Sailor Moon.

The flying broom definitely gives off a more witch/Kiki vibe than anything else, and since it's a movie it probably won't delve into monster of the week shenanigans, but still you never know....

I'll admit I may've jumped the gun a little early with that though. However given the overlap between the two, can you really blame me? lol

Yep, Magical Girl has been around on a yearly basis ever since the Precure franchise took off though arguably one can say it's been that way since Sailor Moon. Just people have only really started paying attention to it's existence again since that one particular show came out.

*sigh* Again with the Ghibli treatment, now even ufotable has gone with the flow. Well that's what sells, so who am I to argue against it...

This looks like an anime adaptation of Noroiya Shimai to me. The anime illustration looks exactly like Yoyo and Nene and atmosphere in the PV is very close.

(Noroiya Shimai sample page from Amazon)

Wow, you're right. That's exactly what the movie looks like. Good catch.

I wonder why they didn't mention it if it's an adaptation...

You know what he meant. No need to be pedantic about it.

For some reason, it's just coming off for me as weird... well at least it's a good kind of weird that had me somehow interested with it.
