Kyoto Animation Makes Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid TV Anime for January Debut
posted on by Egan Loo
The December issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine is announcing on Tuesday more details on the television anime of Coolkyoushinja's Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon or The Dragon Maid of Kobayashi-san) manga. Kyoto Animation is producing the anime for a January 2017 premiere.
Seven Seas is publishing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Miss Kobayashi is your average office worker who lives a boring life, alone in her small apartment–until she saves the life of a female dragon in distress. The dragon, named Tohru, has the ability to magically transform into an adorable human girl (albeit with horns and a long tail!), who will do anything to pay off her debt of gratitude, whether Miss Kobayashi likes it or not. With a very persistent and amorous dragon as a roommate, nothing comes easy, and Miss Kobayashi's normal life is about to go off the deep end!
Coolkyoushinja began the ongoing series in the inaugural issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine in May 2013. Futabasha released the third compiled volume in September 2015, and the fourth volume shipped on May 12. Seven Seas published the first volume in North America on October 18.
Coolkyoushinja's four-panel manga Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying) has inspired two television anime, both of which streamed on Crunchyroll as they aired in Japan. Coolkyoushinja's Komori-san wa Kotowarenai! (Komori-san Can't Decline) manga also inspired an anime that streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired.
