Maria Holic's Minari Endo to Start Uchūjin no Shiwaza Desu! Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's December issue of Kadokawa's Comic Flapper magazine will announce on Thursday that Minari Endo will begin a new series titled Uchūjin no Shiwaza Desu! (It's the Alien's Fault!) in the January issue on December 5. The series will adorn the magazine's cover and have a color opening page.
The tagline for the series reads: "It's said that 95% of UFO sightings are shams, but...?"
Endo launched her Maria Holic manga in the inaugural issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive in 2006, and ended the series last November. Tokyopop published the beginning of the manga in North America. The story inspired two television anime in 2009 and 2011, and Sentai Filmworks licensed both.
Endo's Hatenkō Yūgi manga also inspired an anime adaptation. Tokyopop published the original manga in English as Dazzle.
