The 39th issue of Kodansha's good! Afternoon magazine announced on Tuesday that the character Miss Monochrome will get a manga series in the 40th issue on February 7. Nana Tōno is drawing and Miss Monochrome scriptwriter Kazuyuki Fudeyasu is writing the tentatively-titled Miss Monochrome -More Challenge- manga. Yui Horie is credited with the original character designs.
Miss Monochrome, a character created and played by voice actress Yui Horie, appeared as a 3D character at the "Horie Yui o Meguru Bōken III ~Secret Mission Tour~" concert in March 2012. True to her name, she despises color. After her concert appearance, Miss Monochrome spawned a line of character goods, and she already appeared in the popular social game Girlfriend (Kari) or Girlfriend Beta.
The character inspired a series of anime shorts that aired from October to December. Crunchyroll streamed the shorts outside of Japan as they aired.
