Coolkyoushinja's manga inspired Kyoto Animation series, 2 spinoff manga

This year's December issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine revealed on Thursday that Coolkyoushinja's Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid manga is nearing its "climax."

Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Miss Kobayashi lives in a ordinary apartment, along with her new maid, Tohru...a dragon girl! Tohru despises all humans except for Miss Kobayashi, who she adores. Tohru works diligently to serve her beloved mistress, but there are a lot of little things that she can't seem to quite get right.... Take a peek into the daily life of a hard-working office lady and her inept dragon maid in this inhumanly delightful comedy!

Coolkyoushinja began the ongoing series in the inaugural issue of Monthly Action magazine in May 2013. Futabasha shipped the manga's seventh compiled book volume on April 12. As of February, the manga has 1.2 million copies in print. The series inspired an anime adaptation by Kyoto Animation that premiered in Japan in January. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed and English dub. Funimation released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on April 24.

The manga has also inspired the Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Kanna's Daily Life and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Elma's Office Lady Diary spinoff manga. Seven Seas is also releasing both manga.
