Saga of Tanya the Evil Manga's '2nd Part' Launches in November (Updated)
posted on by Alex Mateo
The October issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine revealed on Wednesday that Chika Tōjo's manga adaptation of Carlo Zen and Shinobu Shinotsuki's Saga of Tanya the Evil (Yōjo Senki) novel series will start its "second part" in the magazine's January 2021 issue on November 26.
The manga ended its "first part" in the magazine on Wednesday. The "first part's" ending corresponds to the television anime adaptation's final episode.
Yen Press licensed both the original light novel and the manga adaptation, and it describes the series:
High above the blood- and mud-soaked trenches, a young girl pits herself against army mages in high stakes aerial duels with bullets, spells, and bayonets. Her name is Tanya Degurechaff and she is the Devil of the Rhine, one of the greatest soldiers the Empire has ever seen! But inside her mind lives a ruthless, calculating ex-salaryman who enjoyed a peaceful life in Japan until he woke up in a war-torn world. Reborn as a destitute orphaned girl with nothing to her name but memories of a previous life, Tanya will do whatever it takes to survive, even if she can find it only behind the barrel of a gun!
Zen and Shinotsuki launched the novel series in 2013, and the 12th novel shipped on February 20. Tōjo launched the manga in Monthly Comp Ace in 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's 19th compiled book volume on July 21, and it will publish the manga's 20th volume with both a standard and limited edition on December 26. Yen Press shipped the 10th volume on June 23.
The television anime adaptation of the novels premiered in January 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Funimation streamed an English dub. The anime also had a film that opened in Japan in February 2019, with a returning staff and cast. Crunchyroll screened the film in the United States in May 2019, and began streaming it in September 2019.
