Back to the Drawing Board for Azuma-- Literally!

Mmmm, more Azumanga Daioh. Delicious.

Azumanga Daioh
creator Kiyohiko Azuma is going to create three new Azumanga Daioh chapters for a new monthly magazine from Shogakukan titled Gessan. Given the term “chapters,” I'm assuming that they're full story-style chapters, like the omake in the manga's collections, as opposed to the 4koma comic strips that comprise the majority of the manga.

Don't get too excited about a US release too soon: Azumanga Daioh wasn't originally published by Shogakukan; that was MediaWorks. The move is said not to be relating to any disagreements, as apparently MediaWorks declined the project before it was offered to Shogakukan. Which sounds like a bad business decision, but oh well.

* This use of the word “literally” is dedicated to John Martone. No, you don't want to know why.

Why? Do you mean, why is he doing this? To celebrate Azumanga Daioh's tenth anniversary, I suppose.
