Well, haven't seen/read it, but as for Google Images is showing me, it kinda has a more modern or, let's say, "hidden" Magical Girl aesthetic. Perhaps it's just a shoujo manga and there's a majokko influence on the artwork, but who knows.

Actually, you've tackled into a very interesting topic @Mikan , what do we consider to be a Magical Girl story? What elements should it have to call it a mahou shoujo series?

Yeah I agree that Ayashi no Ceres does have majokko influence and that it also has supernatural elements in the series too. As for the amazing questions, I think what would be consider to be a Magical Girl story is for the series to be about a girl and her friends having magical powers to save the world or it can also be about a solo Magical Girl who fights against evil alone without needing a team to help her fight against the villains. The elements that a Shoujo and/or Josei series should have to be consider a Magical Girl series are magic/superpowers, romance, using magic/powers to help people, and transformations.
