This year's 14th issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume shōjo magazine has launched the Seiyū ka—! manga by S.A (Special A) manga creator Maki Minami on Saturday. The coming-of-age story revolves around Hime Kino, a 15-year-old freshman girl who pursues her dream of becoming a voice actress by enrolling in Hiiragi Academy's seiyū course. Hime dreams of one day playing the heroine in her favorite (fictional) anime, Mahō Senshi Lovely Blazers (Magical Fighter Lovely Blazers). A sample of the manga's first chapter is available online. The magazine not only devotes the current issue's cover to the new manga, but also offers a gift card with the cover image.
Minami's S.A romance manga just ended in March, and the 17th volume of the manga ships in Japan this month. Viz Media is publishing the 11th volume in North America next month. The manga was adapted into a television anime series last year.
