New Clannad, Da Capo, Jinno Manga to Launch in Japan
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese publisher Fujimi Shobo has announced that it will launch manga based on the bee-be-beat it! prose novel, the Clannad visual novel franchise, and the D.C. ~Da Capo~ the Origin visual novel software in this year's ninth issue (on sale on February 20) of Dragon Edge Pure magazine. Manga artist Arima Honda will adapt Masaki Jinno's bee-be-beat it! novel, the first one written by this scriptwriter for the (unrelated) Nanatsuiro Drops visual novel. Dragon Edge Pure already publishes the bee-be-beat it! novel version. Japan's Geneon Entertainment helped produce the Nanatsuiro Drops anime last year, but no announcement has been made of an English release.
Yukiko Sumiyoshi will draw Clannad ~tomoyo dearest~, the latest manga based on the visual novels from the veteran studio Key. In the same Dragon Edge Pure magazine, Sumiyoshi also drew Tomoyo After ~Dear Shining Memories~, another game-based manga that centers on Clannad's Tomoyo character. The Clannad television anime version happens to be airing in Japan right now.
Mimei Kuroi is serializing a manga based on another visual novel, D.C. ~Da Capo~ the Origin from Circus. The second season of the second Da Capo anime series will start this April.
