Lucky Star Manga Gets Kantai Collection, Prisma Illya Crossover Covers

Special cover variants created to celebrate series' 10th anniversary

The 10th volume of Kagami Yoshimizu's Lucky Star manga will get two special variant covers at Animate and Gamers! store chains. Gamers! stores will offer a Kantai Collection (Kan Colle) crossover cover featuring Lucky Star character Konata Izumi dressed as the Kantai Collection destroyer character Shimakaze. Animate stores will offer a Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya crossover character with Konata as Illya and Kagami Hiiragi as Miyu. The special covers were created as part of the series' 10th anniversary.

Another store chain, Toranoana, will instead bundle a clear file with the Lucky Star cast dressed in tigers kigurumi costumes. (The "tora" in Toranoana is the Japanese word for "tiger.") The volume goes on sale on November 9.

Lucky Star has made appearances in a number of properties. A Lucky Star x Strike Witches figure was announced last year and a Sadako 3D 2 crossover was used to promote the film this summer. Like Lucky Star, both Kantai Collection and Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya have inspired anime adaptations.
