There will also be a collection slipcase limited to 500 copies exclusively in the AKIBA PASS Shop , which can be ordered together with a volume of your choice. In addition, the first 250 people who order the first volume will receive a poster and a sticky notepad for the second volume as a free goodie.
The studio SHAFT, which was responsible for the original anime from 2011, took over the production of the spin-off series. Based on a mobile game Magia Record , Gekidan Inu Curry directed and wrote the screenplay. The TV premiere took place between January and March 2020, followed by an eight-part second season in summer 2021.
