ASCII Media Works began digitally distributing a free web [email protected] magazine with only Vocaloid-themed manga via the Niconico and BOOK☆WALKER services. Volume 0 of the magazine debuted on Wednesday with the Megpoid character Gumi on the cover, as drawn by Tama.
This issue shows a preview for an adaptation of DECO*27's popular song "Mosaic Roll" with manga artist akka, who also collaborated on a music video for the song. The issue also has CAFFEIN's Megu Megu☆Singer Song Fighter manga (inspired by “Megu Megu ☆ Fire Endless Night”), and Tomiyaki Kagisora's adaptation of the “Setsuna Trip” song by Last Note. These songs were all originally sung by Gumi.
When the first full issue of the magazine arrives on January 7, it will also be digitally distributed through pixiv's “pixiv comic” service. After volume one, the magazine will be released on Niconico and BOOK☆WALKER on the 10th of every month, while it will be released on pixiv comic on the 20th.
