Saga of Tanya the Evil Gets Spinoff Gourmet Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Kadokawa's Comptiq and Monthly Comp Ace magazine revealed on Thursday that Carlo Zen's Saga of Tanya the Evil (Yōjo Senki) light novel series will get a new special 128-page manga book. While the December issue of Monthly Comp Ace published on Thursday initially indicated that the content of the book will appear in three consecutive issues of the magazine, the Twitter account corrected the information and noted that it will be a separate book entirely. The Twitter account didn't specify when Kadokawa will publish the book.
The book will include a new two-chapter spinoff gourmet manga titled Yōjo Senki Shokudo by Kyōichi. The manga will show Tanya, Visha, Rerugen, and Zetour in a gourmet-themed story. Kyōichi humorously commented that the manga won't just be filled with potatoes. The manga will launch in Monthly Comp Ace on November 25.
The book will also include an adaptation of Tanya's dogfight against Anson, as well as a manga adaptation of the "Rerugen no Itsū" (Rerugen's Stomachache) drama CD story bundled with the seventh compiled book volume of Chika Tōjō's Saga of Tanya the Evil manga, which ships in Japan on November 10.
Yen Press licensed both the original light novel and the manga adaptation for The Saga of Tanya the Evil (Yōjo Senki). Yen Press describes the story:
At the very edge of the front lines stands a young girl. She has golden hair, blue eyes, and pale, almost translucent skin. Her name is Tanya Degruechaff, and she will join the ranks of the Imperial Army's Military Mages to become one of the most feared figures in this new world…
Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki launched the novel series in 2013, and the eighth novel shipped on June 30. Chika Tōjō's manga adaptation is serializing in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine, and Kadokawa shipped the sixth compiled volume on July 9. The series inspired an anime adaptation that premiered in January. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Funimation streamed an English dub.
