Yuki Ono and Mai Nakahara cast in The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant anime as Mira and Mimori

One of the upcoming anime I have been the most looking forward to is The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant, which was announced back in November along with a number of details as to what we can expect.

An anime whose main voice actors was announced today.

It is the anime adaptation of mangaka Cocoa Fujiwara’ Katsute Mahou Shoujo to Aku wa Tekitai Shiteita, the comedy fantasy romance manga featuring magical girl Byakuya Mimori and Evil Lieutenant Mira.

The two are arch-enemies, as Mira plans on taking over the world while Mimori wants to stop him.

The problem is — they soon find themselves falling love.

Yuki Ono to play Mira, with Mai Nakahara as Mimori

The voice actors announced this week to play the anime’s main leads are Yuki Ono (Rensuke Kunigami in Blue Lock), who will voice evil Mira, and Mai Nakahara (Sayo in The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten) who will be Byakuya Mimori.

The two are the same actors who played Mira and Mimori in the The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant drama CD, which came out in Japan in 2015.

New The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant key visual

Along with the announcement of Yuki Ono and Mai Nakahara voicing the main leads, a new The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant key visual was also released.

The visual shows Mira and Mimori with the character designs they will exhibit in the anime.

It is in the same romantic style as the manga and the previously released teaser trailer (watch below).

Surrounded by flowers, the so-called evil Mira looks slightly worried at the presence of Mimori, while Mimori simply appears inquisitive.

The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant anime is currently scheduled to premiere worldwide in July, 2024.

The anime is being directed by Akiyo Ohashi (Given: On The Other Hand), with Yuniko Ayana (Given) in charge of series composition, and Haruko Iizuka (Horimiya) designing the characters.

Studio Bones is in charge of anime production.

Watch the recently released The Magical Girl and the Evil Lieutenant teaser trailer below, and you will get a little more of a sense as to what we can expect.
