Kenichirō Takaki, Amami Takatsume's manga inspired by ninja action game

North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment confirmed with ANN on Monday that it will release Kenichirō Takaki and Amami Takatsume's Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows (Senran Kagura: Shōjo-tachi no Shinei-) manga starting in November.

The manga is based on the Senran Kagura ninja action video game franchise. Seven Seas describes the manga as follows:

Hanzo Academy: a secret high school established by the Japanese government to educate the newest generation of Ninja Girls. The spunky second year student, Asuka, along with her friends, the perverted Katsuragi, the childish Hibari, the mature Ikaruga and the deadly Yagyu, must each undergo rigorous training in their daily school life. But do they have what it takes to become full-fledged ninja? Only their bodacious skills and prodigious talents can keep them alive while they struggle against ninja rivals who seek to destroy them at every turn.

The first volume will retail for US$12.99, and the second volume will ship in March 2014.

The Senran Kagura video game franchise also inspired a television anime series that Funimation is streaming in North America.

Senran Kagura original creator Takaki and illustrator Takatsume launched the manga in Media Factory's Comic Alive magazine in 2011. Media Factory published the second compiled volume last August.
