'Mahou x Senshi Majimajo Pures!' Latest News: Takashi Miike to Direct Another Magical Girl Live-Action for Takara Tomy

The next addition to Takara Tomy's "Mahou x Senshi" series has been green-lit.

The upcoming show, which is officially titled "Mahou x Senshi Majimajo Pures!," will reportedly be directed by Takashi Miike, who has previously worked on "Ichi The Killer," "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I," and the currently airing series, "Idol x Senshi Miracle Tunes!" It is the second magical girl series inspired and produced by the toy and entertainment company, Takara Tomy. It does not, however, have any connection to "Miracle Tunes!"

The narrative for the upcoming series centers on a girl named Momoka Aino, who has just reached her first year of junior high school. During the entrance ceremony, she is approached by Mokonyan, a mysterious cat-like creature, who encourages her to join a magical girl team known as Mahou Senshi Majimajo Pures.
