Kadokawa Shoten's monthly manga magazines Gundam Ace and Newtype are collaborating to release the new manga magazine Newtype Ace on September 10. Newtype Ace (abbreviated "NA") will publish tie-in manga for recent popular anime or other media franchises.
The new magazine's website reveals that the first issue will have Tiger & Bunny, Minoru Murao's new Last Exile series, Sacred Seven, Blood-C, Towa no Quon, and other manga titles. As ANN reported, the website for the upcoming Un-Go anime also states that a manga version of the story will appear in the magazine before the television anime airs. Hiroshi Ueda (Full Metal Panic! Sigma, The Story of Beijing Opera) is launching still another Tiger & Bunny manga series in Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine in October.
Haruhiko Mikimoto, the character designer of the first Macross anime series, will move his Macross The First manga series from Kadokawa's Macross Ace magazine to Newtype Ace. However, Newtype Ace's website reveals that the next issue of Macross Ace, the ninth issue, does not have a set release date at this time. Futher information about Macross Ace will be provided in Gundam Ace and on the Newtype Ace homepage.
