Red Riding Hood Cha Cha Manga Returns in 2nd New 1-Shot
posted on by Egan Loo
On Saturday, the January issue of Shueisha's Cookie magazine published the second new story in over a decade for Min Ayahana's shōjo fantasy comedy manga Red Riding Hood Cha Cha (Akazukin Cha Cha). The Akazukin Cha Cha N chapter actually appeared in a bundled supplemental booklet called Shōnō Gag Gekijō (Gag Theater for Your Enjoyment). It is a sequel to the one-shot chapter that ran in Cookie this past spring. In the story, the title character Cha Cha finds herself living in modern Tokyo.
Red Riding Hood Cha Cha originally ran in Shueisha's Ribon magazine from 1992 to 2000. It followed the daily slapstick adventures of a budding magician named Cha Cha, a wolf boy named Riiya, and a magician's apprentice named Shiine. The manga inspired a loose 1994-1995 television anime adaptation in which Cha Cha could transform into a Magical Princess during the first year of episodes. A three-episode 1995-1996 original video anime project came after the television series.
The Shōnō Gag Gekijō booklet also has Red Riding Hood Cha Cha contributions by guest artists Megumi Mizusawa, Riry Morina, Ryōko Sukihara, and Haru Tajima.
Starting in Cookie's next issue on December 26, Koi Ikeno's Wakamurasaki will return for a two-issue run.
