posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The May issue of Shueisha's Jump Kai magazine is announcing on Thursday that Terra For Police, a spinoff series of writer Yū Sasuga and artist Kenichi Tachibana's Terra Formars manga, will launch in the next issue on May 10. Manpuku Dō provided the original concept for the spinoff, and illustrator Kaito Shibano (Luminous Arc game series, Ben-to) will provide art for the series. The slapstick comedy will reimagine Michelle and Komachi as police officers.
Sasuga and Tachibana launched Terra Formars in 2011. The manga ranked at #3 on the Da Vinci magazine's list of the best male-oriented comics in the first half of 2013. The manga also topped the male readers category of the 2013 edition of the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook. The manga was nominated for last year's Manga Taisho award. Viz Media licensed the manga for North America.
A television anime and original video anime (OVA) adaptation of the original manga has been green-lit.
