New Key Visual for “Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism” TV Anime

A new key visual has been uploaded to the official website for the television anime adaptation of Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism (Armed Girl’s Machiavellianism)!

The visual includes the main characters (in a circle from top left to top right) Warabi Hanasaka, Tsukuyo Inaba, Rin Onigawara, Mary Kikakujo, and Satori Tamaba with small plush dolls for Fudo Nomura (center) and KiruKiru Amou (top right).

The series’ synopsis can be found below:

“The Private Aichi Symbiosis Academy was originally a high school for high-class girls. When it became co-ed, the girls, out of fear, asked to be permitted to bring weapons to school. When that was enforced, a five-member vigilante corps-like organization called the “Supreme Five Swords” was also formed. After many generations, the five swords eventually became a group which corrected problematic students, and the academy started proactively accepting such students in order to correct them.

Nomura Fudou was sent to this school after being part of a huge brawl. What will he do when the only options he has after enrolling are being expelled from that school or being corrected the way the rest of the male students there were…by being forced to dress and act like a girl!”

Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism will begin airing on April 5. Volume 1 of the Blu-ray/DVD will be released on June 28.
