The October issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Nyantype magazine will announce on Friday that a new Strike Witches manga will begin serialization. "Chapter 0" of the manga will premiere in the November issue on September 30.
The new manga by Shin Kyōgoku follows the lead character Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen, the "Diamond Ace," from the Strike Witches television series. Strike Witches original creator and character designer Humikane Shimada is supervising the story.
Shin Kyōgoku previously serialized the Strike Witches spinoff manga Strike Witches: Kimi to Tsunagaru Sora in Nyantype in 2010. The magazine also published Ningen's spinoff Strike Witches Rei 1937 Fusō Kaiji-hen.
North American publisher Seven Seas licensed the Strike Witches: Maidens in the Sky manga series by Humikane Shimada and Yuuki Tanaka. Seven Seas also noted that it will publish other titles in the Strike Witches manga franchise in summer and fall 2014. Takeshi Nogami's Strike Witches spinoff manga, Strike Witches: The Witches of Andorra, has previously been published in English in Kadokawa Shoten's online magazine Kadokawa Niconico Ace.
