Black Rock Shooter's 4-Panel Manga Launches This Week

posted on by Egan Loo
4-Koma Nano Ace mag also has Nichijō, Baka & Test, SoraOto, Haruhi, Lucky Star, Nanoha, Maka Maka, Gundam

The figure manufacturer Good Smile Company confirmed in a Sunday blog entry (Japanese) that the Black Rock-chan four-panel manga will launch in the inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten's 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine on Wednesday. In the manga, the artist ringo turns the Black Rock Shooter franchise's title character and her nemesis Dead Master into the super-deformed characters "Rock-chan" and "De-chan."

According to Good Smile Company, it is "pure coincidence" that the manga is launching on the same day as the browser-based game Puchitto Rock Shooter. Black Rock Shooter originated as an illustration by the artist huke, and has since spawned both anime and games.
