Satoko Kiyuzuki draws slice-of-life manga about 5 freshmen girls in art class
The Moon Phase Comments diary reports that a NetMile Research survey has leaked the news of an anime adaptation for Satoko Kiyuzuki's GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class manga. The slice-of-life manga revolves around five freshman girls in a high school art class. The manga has been running in Heiwa Shuppan's Comic Cute! magazine and later in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat since 2004, and two volumes have been compiled and published.
Update 2: Yen Press announced at Comic-Con International in July that it licensed the rights to the original GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class manga. The first North American volume will ship in April. Thanks, einhorn303.

It's easy to understand what Kill La Kill wants to say in every moment because its ideas are simple, but conveyed in ways never quite seen before, and its healthy splashes of humor grow out of its thematic ideas rather than combating them.
