This year's 30th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Ken Akamatsu's UQ Holder! manga is getting an anime adaptation.
The issue is also revealing that the manga will change magazines from Weekly Shonen Magazine to Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine. Kodansha publishes Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine once a month. UQ Holder! is going on a break starting with the 30th issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine, and will debut in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in its November issue on October 8.
UQ Holder! is set in the world of Akamatsu's Negima! manga, and takes place years after the earlier manga. The story centers on a boy named Touta who dreams of leaving his small town and moving to the city. However, he must first defeat his teacher, the immortal Evangeline.
Akamatsu launched UQ Holder! in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in Japan in August 2013. Kodansha will publish the 11th compiled volume on July 15, and the 12th volume on November 17. A limited edition of the 12th volume will bundle a "Negima! Box" that will include a booklet and as-yet unspecified merchandise.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and it will publish the eighth volume in July.
