Mangirl! Manga About Editors' Lives Gets TV Anime

Kagari Tamaoka's manga about female manga editors who launch magazine with zero experience

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.
