Sep 14th 2011
HOUSTON, Sept 14, 2011— Sentai Filmworks hasn’t added a starter course in sorcery to their catalog, but they have added the thoroughly enchanting new series MODERN MAGIC MADE SIMPLE to their ever expanding line up of animated hits! Based on the hit manga ‘Yoku Wakaru Gendai Maho’ written by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and illustrated by Miki Miyashita (Maburaho), the 12 episode series about a world where the task of casting a magic spell is the equivalent of writing computer code has been mystically crafted under the supervision of director Yasuhiro Kuroda (Kämpfer, Amazing Nurse Nanako) with Makoto Koga (Aria, sola, Bludgeoning Angel Dokura-chan) adapting the character designs from Miyashita’s bewitching originals.
Life hasn’t been fair to Koyomi Morishita. Even though she’s in High School, she’s so short that everyone assumes she’s still in grade school. The boys and girls in her school tease her mercilessly and she’s not exactly graceful either. On the other hand, she’s still better off than Yumiko, who has a magician trying to kill her. Or at least Koyomi WAS until their paths crossed! Fortunately, salvation arrives in the form of master mage and graduate student Misa Anehara, who agrees to take Koyomi under her wing in learning the new style of magic, which breaks enchantment down into sequences of code. That will be quite a task, given that so far Koyomi’s talent seems to consist of making washbasins randomly fall out of the sky. But if it was easy, it wouldn’t be magic, would it? Get ready for a whole new kind of 'spell’ing lesson as Koyomi takes a desperately needed crash course in charm school in MODERN MAGIC MADE SIMPLE!
Watch for MODERN MAGIC MADE SIMPLE on subtitled DVD this December, just in time for Christmas!
