Journey of anime and manga "Trip to Tama New Town"

Magic and ESP crosses over Tama New Town!

In 1965, 3,000 hectare of Tama hillside forest was cut cleared and a large city complex Tama New Town was created. The city plan of multiple tall buildings and estate complex was a symbol of rapid Japanese economic growth. The story of an animation series "A Certain Magical Index" was developed over Tama New Town. Artificially designed "Tama New Town" but well deserves the name of "Academy city".
