The website for the Magical Girl Raising Project anime adaptation has put up a video introducing four new cast members. As ever, the YouTube video is region-locked so I’ll be sharing both that and one from Dailymotion that serves as an alternative.
The new cast members:
So that’s our new magical girl additions for this time; a gunslinger, a robot, a musician and a medic, maybe?
Personally I’ve never been a fan of westerns, but I’m sure there’s plenty of people out there who will find a gunslinger magical girl appealing. Her ability to turn any object she holds into a weapon seems interesting, if I’m interpreting it correctly.
Magicaloid 44’s power seemingly relies on pure luck on whether she’ll get anything useful when it comes to battle, which could lead to some interesting situations arising if she’s forced into battle.
As a lover of Symphogear, I’m a fan of magical girls who use music. As such, I very much look forward to seeing just what it is that Cranberry is capable of using her power. Will she take on a bard-like role, or will she be at the front lines when it comes to combat?
Finally, Hard Gore Alice. She can heal severed limbs – this suggests to me we’re going to experience a few bloody battles. If I don’t see at least one magical girl lose a limb, I’ll be slightly disappointed. I’m also curious about her pursuing Snow White (that would be the protagonist of this story, in case you forgot). Guess we’ll have to wait until the show airs to find out the reasoning for that one.
Magical Girl Raising Project has quite an eclectic bunch of characters; we have a ninja, a gunslinger, a musician, a robot and many others in addition to that. I very much looking forward to seeing them square off, and presumably make alliances and such, when Magical Girl Raising Project premieres on October 2nd. Well, that’s on Japanese TV at least. I don’t know yet if this will be picked up by any streaming services, but I’m certainly hoping so.
