Kaori Hanzawa’s Comic Girls will get a TV anime adaptation. The news was announced in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara MAX August issue, released on 19 June 2017.
Comic Girls is a comedy manga about middle and high school girls who live together in a dorm exclusively for manga authors. One of the girls is Kaoruko Moeta, who has been active as a 4-koma manga artist for four years under the pen name ‘Chaos’. Interacting with her are her roommate Koyume Koizuka, Ruki, who mostly draws pervy teenage romance stories, and Tsubasa, who prefers to draw shonen manga. We follow them as they work and study and we see their friendship bloom.
Two volumes have been released so far, with the third volume to be released on 27 June 2017. In celebration of the news, there will be an autograph session held on 1 July 2017 at Animate Shibuya, Tokyo. The tickets for the event are given to those who purchase or pre-order Volume 3 of the manga either at Animate Akihabara, Animate Shinjuku, or Animate Tachikawa. There is only a limited number of tickets available at each store, so please check back before buying your manga.
