Maken-Ki Manga #8 to Bundle Unaired Anime Episode (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The September issue of Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine announced on Tuesday that the eighth volume of Hiromitsu Takeda's Maken-Ki! action romantic comedy manga will bundle an unaired anime episode on DVD. The eighth manga volume will ship in a regular edition (without the DVD) and a limited edition (with the DVD and a variant cover) on March 1, 2012. The print run of DVD-bundled edition will be limited to the number of pre-orders received.
The story revolves around Takeru Ōyama, a boy enrolled in an elite school where the girls (and boys) fight with mysterious items called Maken. The student body includes the enigmatic girl Kodama, a girl named Inaho who calls herself Takeru's fiancée, and his childhood friend Haruko.
The manga is inspiring a October television series from director Koichi Ohata (Ikki Tousen, Burst Angel) and the anime studio AIC. An advance promotional video for the television anime began streaming on Monday.
Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, mangasource.
