Mimana Orimoto and Guiya О̄ta launched a spinoff manga of Orimoto's Bakuon!! motorcycle manga titled Bakuon!! Taiwan-hen (Bakuon!! Taiwan Arc) in this year's December issue of Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Young Champion magazine on Tuesday. The first chapter has color pages.
Bakuon!! Taiwan-hen features the original manga's characters heading to Taiwan to introduce the country's tourist spots and cuisine. The characters travel there after Hane sees a motorcycle that was made in Taiwan.
The spinoff manga also launched with two chapters on Akita Shoten and online bookstore BookLive!'s YanChanLive! (Young Champion Live!), an online magazine that publishes new manga chapters one chapter ahead of their print serializations. YanChanLive! launched on Tuesday. The online magazine debuted with three new manga, as well as two currently serializing manga.
Orimoto (Mahou Shoujo Neko X, Maid in Japan) launched the original Bakuon!! manga series in Young Champion Retsu magazine in February 2011. Akita Shoten published the manga's 13th compiled book volume on October 18. A 12-episode television anime adaptation premiered in April 2016. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime, and Crunchyroll and The Anime Network streamed the series.
