Denpa Kyōshi's Takeshi Azuma Launches Badminton Girls Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Takeshi Azuma launched a new manga titled Badminton Girls on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website on Wednesday.
The manga adapts DMM Games' first original project of the same name, which DMM Games announced in January. The story begins with a school's entire badminton team quitting, with only the president and manager left. To add to their frustration, the school's board chairman announced that the school will soon be closed. The badminton team begins gathering new team members in order to fulfill a certain condition to avoid the school's closure.
The new project will also involve a game and music.
Azuma's Denpa Kyōshi - He Is a Ultimate Teacher (Ultimate Otaku Teacher) manga launched in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in late 2011, and ended in March 2017. Shogakukan shipped the manga's 26th and final volume in April 2017. The manga inspired two anime commercials in 2012 and 2013, and a 24-episode television anime adaptation that premiered in Japan in April 2015. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and also streamed the show dubbed in English. Funimation released the series on two Blu-ray Disc and DVD combo packs in November 2016 and March 2017.
Azuma also launched the Chrono Ma:gia: Mugen no Haguruma (Infinite Gears) manga on Wednesday alongside Homura Kawamoto and Hikaru Mono.
