Yui Horie-Inspired Miss Monochrome Gets Manga in February

Idol character inspired series of anime shorts last year

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.
