The anime of Asari Endo and Maruino’s survival action light novel series Maho Shojo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project) now has a (region-locked) promo video streaming from the show’s official website, which reveals the anime’s cast, character designer, theme song and October premiere. Nisekoi‘s Chitoge, Nao Toyama, plays the protagonist Snow White in the story of a social game which gives players a one in 10,000 chance of becoming a magical girl. However, the game glitches and produces too many in one district, so 16 girls must wage a survival game against one another.
