Retailer Amazon Japan is currently listing the cover for the August issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine. The cover (pictured at right) reveals that Tadataka Kawasaki's Chio-chan no Tsūgakuro (Chio's School Commute) manga is getting an anime adaptation. The magazine will officially ship on July 5.
Kawasaki launched the manga in Monthly Comic Flapper in 2014, and Kadokawa published the manga's sixth compiled volume on March 23.
The "dramatic extreme going to school comedy" manga follows the titular female high school student Chio Miyamo, and her adventures to commute to school every day. Chio runs in to problems both big and small, such as construction, a biker gang, a sudden urge to use the bathroom, and more.
The manga won the "Flapper Award" at the ninth "MF Comics Awards."
