The official website for the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! X Monthly Project has announced that the Kaibutsu Tsugai Tsuna! side-story manga will get a "petit anime" adaptation this month. The manga has been running in two-page color installments in Shueisha's V Jump magazine since August. The Kaibutsu Tsugai Tsuna! anime is scheduled to run during the main Katekyo Hitman Reborn! airings on October 17, 24, and 31.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn! X Monthly Project marks the debut this month of the Vongola mafia family's 10th boss in Akira Amano's story. Other media tie-ins in the project include the return of the text novel adaptation for one installment in Jump Square magazine's November issue. The novel installment will feature the Hibari character with illustrations by Amano herself. Over 200 pages of the Reborn! manga's Vs. Varia story arc are being posted online for free on the shonenjump.com website until November 14. Viz Media is publishing the 13th manga volume in North America this week.
