Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Manga Gets Spinoff in December
posted on by Kevin Yuan
The January issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine revealed on Friday that Coolkyoushinja's Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid manga will receive a spinoff starting in its February issue, which will ship on December 24. Manga artist Mitsuhiro Kimura (Dullahan-chan wa Kubittake) will draw the new series, titled Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Kanna no Nichijō (Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Kanna's Daily Life). The February issue will also feature a bonus 2017 calendar for Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid.
The magazine also announced that Kōta Yamazaki's new horror comedy manga titled Ozomasia will also launch in its February issue.
The Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Kanna no Nichijō spinoff series follows the dragon character Kanna, as she goes through her casual daily life of waking up, going to school, and playing with Saikawa.
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 published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on May 12, and will publish the fifth volume on December 12. Seven Seas published the first volume in North America on October 18. The series is inspiring an anime adaptation that will premiere in Japan in January.
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.
