Peppermint Anime is working through bringing this property to German audiences with the anime adaptation of Makoto Fukami and Seigo Tokiya’s Magical Girl Special Ops Asuka from the winter 2019 season. The distributor has brought out the show in two six-episode sets with the second set landing at the end of August 2020. With both sets out, they’ve now dropped the ninth dub clip that is eerily quiet at first and then just explodes on you!
Check out our review of the series.
