posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
1st anime season based on Coolkyoushinja's manga premiered in January 2017

The wraparound jacket band on the eighth volume of Coolkyoushinja's Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid manga revealed on Tuesday that the manga is inspiring a second anime season.

Coolkyoushinja began the ongoing Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid series in the inaugural issue of Monthly Action magazine in May 2013. Futabasha shipped the manga's seventh compiled book volume on April 12. Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in English. Monthly Action announced in October that the manga was nearing its climax.

The series inspired an anime adaptation that premiered in Japan in January 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed an English dub. Funimation released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on April 24.

The manga has also inspired the ongoing Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Kanna's Daily Life and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Elma's Office Lady Diary spinoff manga. The sixth volume of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Kanna's Daily Life and the second volume of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Elma's Office Lady Diary shipped on Tuesday. Seven Seas is also releasing both manga.

A third spinoff manga, Kobayashi-san-chi no Maid Dragon: Lucoa wa Boku no xx Desu. (Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Lucoa is my xx), launched in Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine on January 25.
