posted on by Alex Mateo
1st chapter launches on November 3

Yen Press announced on Friday that it has licensed Yozora no Udon's manga adaptation of Miri Mikawa and aki's Sugar Apple Fairy Tale light novel series, and it will release it as a digital simulpublication, starting on November 3.

New chapters will launch simultaneously with the Japanese releases on platforms such as Book Walker Global and Comixology.

The adaptation will launch in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine on November 4.

The fantasy novels are set in the Kingdom of Highland, where fairies serve humans, and center on a girl named Anne. Anne's mother recently passed away, so Anne decides to carry on the family trade and become a Silver Sugar Master, a special artisan who can create magical candy. With her foul-mouthed fairy bodyguard Charles, she sets out on a journey to the capital.

Writer Mikawa and artist aki launched the novels in April 2010, and ended the series in the 17th volume in February 2015. Alto Yukimura published a two-volume manga adaptation of the novels on Hakusensha's Hana to Yume Online website from 2013 to 2014.

The novels are also inspiring an anime adaptation.
