The August issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine announced on Sunday that Abnormal Physiology Seminar (Hen Zemi) creator TAGRO is launching the manga adaptation of Gainax's Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt television anime series in the next issue on August 4. Gurren Lagann director Hiroyuki Imaishi, character designer Atsushi Nishigori, and conceptual artist Yoh Yoshinari created this project about a teen-celebrity-like blond-haired girl named Panty and a black-haired Goth-Loli girl named Stocking. The two are angels sent from the heavens to battle the "Ghosts" on Earth. The anime itself will premiere in Japan in October.
Also in the next issue of Young Ace, Sora no Otoshimono (Heaven's Lost Property) creator Suu Minazuki is launching a new manga called Daisuki Desu!! Mahō Tenshi Kosumosu (I Love You!! Magical Angel Kosumosu) with Enmusu's Takahiro Seguchi drawing the actual art. In this modern-day fantasy, a town disappears one day in a sudden, unexplained explosion. Where the town once stood, only an expansive desert — with falling snow — remains. Kosumosu is an ordinary girl who was preparing for a birthday get-together for "Raita-oniichan" (who she likes) when her life as a magical angel begins.
In the current Young Ace issue, Morohe Yoshida has launched the new romantic comedy manga Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. The story centers around a middle school girl who has a crush on a classmate, but she has yet to confess her feelings. However, a mysterious entity appears before her one day after she helps some animals at a shrine.
