Heavy Object Novels by Magical Index's Kamachi Get New Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The March issue of Kadokawa's Dengeki Maoh magazine announced last week that Sakae Saitō will launch the new Heavy Object A (Ace) manga in the magazine's next issue, which will ship in Japan on February 27.
The manga is based on the Heavy Object science-fiction war action light novel series by A Certain Magical Index author Kazuma Kamachi. The original novels' story revolves around Objects — powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare — and Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield.
Sakae Saitō previously serialized the Heavy Object S manga in Dengeki Maoh from 2011 to 2013, which is based on the same novel series. Shinsuke Inue also serialized a manga adaptation in Dengeki Black Maoh and Dengeki Maoh from 2009 to 2011. A television anime adaptation was announced last October.
Kamachi's multi-series crossover story Toaru Majutsu no Heavy na Zashiki Warashi ga Kantan na Satsujin-ki no Konkatsu Jijō (The Circumstance Leading to a Simple Killer Princess's Marriage Was A Certain Magical Heavy Zashiki Warashi) is also inspiring a manga that is launching this month.
