The February issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine announced on Saturday that manga artist Chako Abeno will start a spinoff series of Kenji Saito and Akinari Nao's Trinity Seven manga. The spinoff manga, titled Trinity Seven: Liese Chronicle, will launch in the magazine's March issue on February 9.
Abeno's manga will be the second official spinoff of the Trinity Seven series. The story centers on Lieselotte Sherlock, an evil mage from the original manga. Sutarō Hanao's Trinity Seven: Levi Ninden spinoff manga featuring character Levi Kazama ran from November 2015 to December 2016.
Saito and Nao's ongoing Trinity Seven manga launched in Monthly Dragon Age in 2011. Kadokawa published the manga's 15th compiled book volume in Japan on August 9. Yen Press is publishing the original manga in English, and it shipped the seventh volume on November 22.
The original manga received a 12-episode television anime adaptation, which premiered in Japan in October 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired. The manga is also inspiring an anime film, which will open in Japan on February 25.
Abeno previously worked on the manga adaptations of the multimedia project sola, AQUAPLUS' visual novel White Album, and her original series Welcome to Wakaba-soh. Broccoli Books licensed sola for North American release in 2007 and released the first volume before shutting down in 2008. Yen Press acquired the rights to Welcome to Wakaba-soh in 2008 and released both volumes of that series. Abeno also drew the manga adaptation of Gakuto Mikumo's Dantalian no Shoka light novel series.
