Onsen Musume, the multimedia project that will personify hot springs around Japan, will get a manga adaptation. It has also opened a fan club!
The comic will be drawn by Chikage Mitsukura, known for Otoko no Ko wa Maidfuku ga Osuki!? (Boys Like Maid Clothes!?) and Koi ga Sakukoro Sakuradoki. Onsen Musume will be serialized on the Web comic site Comic Newtype from this summer.
The multimedia project Onsen Musume, which depicts famous Japanese hot springs as beautiful girls, has its roots in crowdfunding. It is using the tagline ‘Sharing the charm of onsen with the world!’

The project will open two fan clubs simultaneously. The first one will be focused on Onsen Musume and is called ‘Onsen Musume Official Fan Magazine’. The magazine will include top secret information about Onsen Musume’s setting and production, advanced releases of character illustrations, behind-the-scenes of the project, and items limited to fan club members. Also, priority reservation of event tickets will be available to members. The fan club is fully loaded with benefits for fans.
The second club is called ‘HOT SPRiNGS’ and will focus on the cast of the project. The club will provide never before published gravure shots of the voice cast and behind-the-scenes material from the stage events, interviews only available through the fan club, as well as archived recordings.
The fan clubs are scheduled to open on 20 May 2017.
