40-page side-story will center on child of Chocotan, Happy

The official website for Shueisha's Ribon magazine revealed on Wednesday that that Kozue Takeuchi will draw a side-story chapter for her Chocotan! (Chocolate & Tan!) shōjo manga titled "Happy-tan!" in the magazine's next issue on December 1. The side-story will have 40 pages, and will center on the child of Chocotan and Happy.

The manga follows a talking female miniature dachshund puppy named Chocotan and Nao, the girl who owns her. The two are close friends, and Chocotan supports Nao as the girl deals with a romantic crush and life in general.

Takeuchi launched the manga in Ribon magazine in 2011, and ended it on September 1. The 12th compiled volume of Chocotan! previously revealed in June that the 13th volume would be the final one.

The manga inspired an event anime special that screened at the Ribon Festa 2013 in April of that year, and was also streamed online. The anime starred Rie Kugimiya, Ayane Sakura, Takuya Eguchi, and Mutsumi Tamura.
