Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! Debuts Online Mini-Anime

The anime Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! (a.k.a. 30-sai Dōtei da to Mahō Tsukai ni Nareru Rashii in Japanese) won’t be here until January 10, but you can check out its mini-anime Cheri Maho Mini Gekijō! These short animated segments will be adapting the one-page manga shorts you can find in the digital version of the original manga by Yuu Toyota.

The first episode is 44 seconds, and even if you don’t speak Japanese, you can still get a gist of what’s going on (and look at all those shojo roses in the background).

The mini-anime will not be released on a specific schedule.

Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! is being made at Satelight, with Yoshiko Okuda of Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits- helming the project as director. The person overseeing the series scripts is Tomoko Konparu, who has worked on Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits- and Uta no Prince-sama – Maji Love 1000%.

Looking toward the cast, Chiaki Kobayashi play Kiyoshi Adachi, Ryōta Suzuki plays Yūichi Kurosawa, Makoto Furukawa plays Masato Tsuge, Gen Sato plays Minato Wataya, Yusuke Shirai plays Yuta Rokkaku, and Ami Koshimizu plays Nozomi Fujisaki.

Its opening theme song is titled “Hajimete wa Zenbu-kun ga Ii” and performed by Koe ni Naranai yo, while its ending theme song is called “Magical Love” and performed by actors Chiaki Kobayashi and Ryōta Suzuki.

Square Enix Manga & Books publishes the original manga and gave this description for it:

It’s complicated: A thirty-year-old virgin gets more than he bargained for when his newfound magical power reveals he’s the object of his male coworker’s affections!

Adachi, a thirty-year-old virgin, has developed the power to read people’s minds by touching them. After a brush with his very handsome colleague, Adachi realizes the guy has a raging crush on none other than Adachi himself!
