News Maken-Ki Manga to Bundle Island Anime Episode on Blu-ray
posted on 2013-03-06 16:00 AEDT
The 11th volume of Hiromitsu Takeda's Maken-Ki action romantic comedy manga will bundle an original anime Blu-ray Disc in a limited edition in late September. The publisher Fujimi Shobo teases that the new anime is full of "sex appeal" and fan service on a tropical island.
The 3,990-yen (about US$43) bundle will also have a variant cover for the manga volume, and the print run will be limited to the number of pre-orders received.
The manga 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 already inspired a television anime series in 2011, as well as an earlier original anime DVD. Funimation licensed the television series for streaming and home entertainment releases in North America. Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Age magazine announced in September that a new anime adaptation is launching.
