To kick off the new year, manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment will be unveiling several new acquisitions this week, beginning with three yesterday and continuing until Friday, with three magical girl series being revealed today.
The first of today’s newly announced titles, is Unmagical Girl, from Ryuichi Yokoyama and Manmaru Kamitsuki. Originally titled The Later Daily Life of the Magic Girl, the series will be released in North America as Unmagical Girl, and follows Pretty Angel Nirvana, a popular magical girl with a TV show watched in every home, until an office worker’s computer goes haywire, and the fictional character finds herself pulled from the screen, into our world. Now, she must adjust to a new life, of grocery shopping and paying bills, instead of saving the world and battling monsters.

The second title revealed today, is Magical Girl Special Ops Asuka, a dark and sexy military and magical girl series from Makoto Fukami and Seigo Tokiya.
