Acro Trip will be produced by Voil as the studio’s first series. The company was founded in 2022 and has provided key animation for other productions, such as Undead Unluck and Shangri-La Frontier. In addition to a 2024 release, Voil is also preparing to produce an anime adaptation of Kuzushiro’s A Smile in an Unbearable Workplace, scheduled to premiere in 2025.
Acro Trip was serialized in Shueisha’s Ribon magazine from 2017 to 2022. It follows a middle school girl named Chizuko Date, who is infatuated with Berry Blossom, a real-life magical girl who protects the city from danger. Due to the villain’s incompetence, the public no longer paid attention to the hero’s fight against her archenemy, Chrome. In an effort to bring Berry Blossom back to prominence, Chizuko joins Chrome’s evil organization.
Magical girl anime first became popular in the 90s thanks to shows like Sailor Moon. After a brief decline, it saw a resurgence with series such as Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which took a darker approach to the genre. Acro Trip deals with this concept in a humorous way by having the protagonist join the dark side and become friends with the antagonist. Fans of the magical girl story can look forward to its chaotic humor as they wait for news on the anime’s official release date.
