News Mangirl! Manga About Editors' Lives Gets TV Anime
posted on 2012-05-07 09:31 EDT by Egan Loo
The wraparound jacket band on the first volume of Kagari Tamaoka's Mangirl! manga and Monthly Comic Earth Star magazine's website are announcing that a television anime adaptation of the manga is in the works for next year. The four-panel manga follows the daily life of naive Editor-in-Chief Hana and "Japan's cutest manga editors" as they attempt to realize their dream of launching the #1 manga magazine — even though they have zero experience in actually editing manga.
Yasu (Joshiraku, Toradora!) created the original character designs for the manga, which was originally titled Sōkan! Comic Earth Star Henshū-bu (Launch! Comic Earth Star Editors) when it debuted in Earth Star Entertainment's Monthly Comic Earth Star magazine. The first compiled volume will ship on Saturday. The studio Dogakobo (Yuruyuri, Koihime Musō, A Bridge to the Starry Skies) is producing the anime.
