posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Kodansha's upcoming manga magazine Shōnen Magazine Edge revealed on Thursday that it will launch GoRA (original creator group for K franchise), Mito Satō (Haru no Hōtai Shōjo manga creator), and Takayuki Yanase's (mechanical designer for Gundam 00, Valvrave the Liberator) new manga series Seiyaku no Frontline (The Pledge of the Frontline). The "robot and boys' lonely Earth defensive battle" manga will launch in the magazine's third issue on November 17.
The magazine also revealed three more manga that will join its lineup. Seiko Erisawa (AX - Alternative Manga, Shingetsu wo Hidari ni Senkai) will launch the Uchi no Class no Shōjo ga Yabai (The Girls in My Class are Dangerous) manga, about a class where all the female classmates have supernatural powers. Boys-love artists Uyuni Morita and Sakurana Haru (Sensei no Koi Nikki, Piano Danshi) will launch the Maoh Install (Devil King Install) and Grimoire no Niwa (Grimoire's Garden) manga, respectively. Morita's Maoh Install manga will follow the "satanic school battles" of boys with "absolute zero" souls who have fallen to the demon capital. Haru's Grimoire no Niwa manga will tell the "secret story" of boys who break taboos at a school for magic.

Kodansha will launch the magazine on September 17.
Shōnen Magazine Edge will also serialize Ryuji Gotsubo's (Sasameke) Aramitama manga, Gumi Amashi's (Hell's Kitchen) B no Shokutaku (B's Dining Table) manga, LovePlus character designer Tarō Minoboshi's (formerly Mino☆Tarō) Seifuku Robin Son (Uniform Robin Song) manga, Hiroyuki Takei's (Shaman King, Ultimo) new manga Nekogahara, as well as Yasuyuki Torikai's Shinyaku Märchen manga adapting Sound Horizon's Märchen story album. The magazine will ship on the 17th of every month, and Kodansha will also publish a digital version simultaneously with the print version.
Shōnen Magazine Edge's name comes from the fact that Kodansha is aiming to publish works "at the extreme exterior of the 'Magazine' group." Fumio Osano, Kodansha's editor for Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon and Codename: Sailor V manga, will serve as editor-in-chief of Shōnen Magazine Edge.
