Digital Manga Adds Kotoura-san, Aria the Scarlet Ammo on eManga

posted on by Karen Ressler
Both series' anime adaptations streamed in North America

Digital Manga Inc.'s manager Yoko Tanigaki announced on Twitter on Tuesday that the company has licensed Enokids' Kotoura-san and Yoshino Koyoka's Aria the Scarlet Ammo manga. The first volumes will be available digitally on eManga.

Kotoura-san follows Haruka Kotoura, a girl who suffered during her childhood because of her ability to read minds. When she starts high school she meets Manabe, her classmate who often thinks about erotic things, and joins a club of people who are not afraid of her ability. Her gloomy life starts to become enjoyable.

Crunchyroll streamed the anime adaptation as it aired last year. The manga's print run increased 3.5 times after the anime aired. The manga is currently running on Micro Magazine's website Manga Goccha (Manga Got a Chance), and Micro Magazine is publishing the sixth book volume on Friday.

Chūgaku Akamatsu's Hidan no Aria light novel series inspired a television anime in 2011 and Funimation released the series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.

The story takes place in Tokyo Butei High School, a special school where armed detectives — "Butei" — are trained to use weapons. Kinji Tōyama is a second-year-student who has a special ability, but he keeps it a secret to maintain an ordinary, peaceful life. However, when he gets caught in a bombing on the way to school, he encounters H. Aria Kanzaki, the most powerful S-Rank Butei student in Assault Studies.

Akamatsu teased in January that a big project regarding is waiting to be revealed. Yoshino's manga adaptation of the novels is currently running in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine and the ninth compiled volume was released in December. The novels have also inspired the manga spinoff Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA by Shogako Tachibana.
