Both manga adapting original anime series launched last year

This year's June issue of Mag Garden's Comic Garden magazine revealed on Saturday that it will publish the final chapters of Satelight and Kazuomi Minatogawa's M3 - Sono Kuroki Hagane and Yōsuke Miyagi and Bonkara's The Rolling Girls manga in the July issue on June 5.

The manga adaptation of Satelight's original anime series M3 The Dark Metal premiered in Mag Garden's now-defunct Monthly Comic Blade magazine in April 2014, and Mag Garden published the first compiled volume in September. The manga switched publications to the new Comic Garden magazine when the magazine launched last September.

Satelight's original anime series also premiered last April. Media distribution service and retailer Daisuki streamed the television anime series as it aired in Japan. Daisuki also describes the anime's story:

A distorted, endlessly black darkness.
The location where the dark swallowed everything and took everything from us has become known as the Lightless Realm.
Born there, as if they were mirror images of the despair and chaos humans felt, were aberrations.
They were called Admonitions.
An investigation of the Lightless Realm that eats away at the human psyche.
Can a group of eight boys and girls gathered in an effort to combat the Admonitions see the light of the future beyond the Lightless Realm, while their past destinies and dangerous present intertwine in a complicated web?

The anime also inspired a PS4/PS Vita game adaptation that Namco Bandai Games released in November.

The manga adaptation of The Rolling Girls television anime series launched in Mag Garden's Comic Garden magazine on October 4, and Mag Garden released the first compiled volume on January 10.

The anime series premiered on January 10 in Japan. Funimation streamed the series as it aired. The company describes the anime's story:

Gun your engines and get ready for the full-throttle adventure of The Rolling Girls, the first original anime from the studio that brought you Attack on Titan! In the wake of the Great Tokyo War, Japan, as the world once knew it, no longer exists. What remains is a fragmented network of independent nations ruled by heroes known as Bests. Each Best commands an army made of the Rest as they seek to conquer anyone in their path. Enter Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, and Chiaya. These four intrepid and adorable girls are ordered by their Best to travel across the country by motorcycle, keeping a watchful eye on the field of battle wherever they encounter violence between warring nations!

A separate four-panel manga launched in Comic Blade on October 27, and Mag Garden published the one compiled volume on March 10.
