Himōto Umaru-chan's Sankaku Head Publishes New 3-Chapter Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's April issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Magazine announced on Monday that manga creator Sankaku Head will launch a three-chapter manga in the May issue on April 6. All three chapters, a total of 26 pages, will launch at the same time.
The manga will be a completely new work with the theme "nostalgic." The preview image shows a blue-haired girl with a PlayStation-themed skirt, a Tamagotchi! headband, and an original Game Boy.
The magazine also noted that Sankaku Head's Himouto! Umaruchan manga has 2.7 million copies in print. Sankaku Head launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two-chapter Himōto! Umaru-chan! version in Miracle Jump in 2012). Shueisha published the ninth volume (pictured at right) on November 18, and will publish the manga's 10th compiled volume with an original anime DVD (OAD) on April 19.
The manga inspired the Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan, Himōto! Umaru-chan S, and Himōto! Umaru-chan SS spinoff manga. Himōto! Umaru-chan SS ended on February 28.
A television anime adaptation of Himōto! Umaru-chan premiered in July 2015, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and will release it with an English dub.
