Lucky Star Manga Vol. 1 to Get Second Printing

July 13, 2009 – Bandai Entertainment Inc. announced today that the recently released Lucky Star manga Vol. 1 will go back to the presses for a second printing.

“Having previously released the anime with Kadokawa Pictures USA, we knew there were a lot of Lucky Star fans in the U.S., but the reaction to the manga has been really fabulous and it is a testament to the amazing characters and unique humor of Mangaka Yoshimizu-san. We are pleased to announce we are going back for a second printing after only two weeks of release,” said Manga Editor and Marketing Director Robert Napton of Bandai Entertainment.

Created by Kagami Yoshimizu, the manga has been serialized since 2004 in Japan. As the back of the cover of the manga states: “The effects of Lucky Star are that you will find yourself giggling involuntarily and the manga is best for when you want to relax, feel lethargic, or just spend your time leisurely.”

The Lucky Star anime also continues in August with Bandai Entertainment's release of the Lucky Star OVA which continues with new stories following the anime TV series.
