The anime distributor Bandai Visual began serializing Rion Senju's AIKa Zero Cute manga on Yomban, its free Japanese magazine website, on Wednesday. Like the previously announced AIKa Zero anime series, the manga centers on the 19-year-old female agent-in-training Aika Sumeragi while she is in college. However, the manga will tell another, separate story. The second manga installment will be posted on August 3, and the first volume of the AIKA Zero video anime series will ship on August 25.
The official blog for the anime project reports on Friday that the Amazon.co.jp website is streaming a 90-second promotional video for the first anime volume. (In the linked page, select the "Playlist" button, and then select the "Aika Zero 1" menu option.) The same Amazon.co.jp page also has promotional videos of Gundam's 30th anniversary, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 Special Edition, Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex and its 2ng Gig continuation, Sun Brave Fyvard, and Legendary Brave Da Garn.
Central Park Media released the first Agent AIKa series in North America, while Bandai Entertainment reissued the first series and licensed the AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission prequel.
