March 2009 Archives

May's Comp Ace with Kiddy GiRL-and pure chapter 1 is now here.. 4000¥ worth of postage later (£30 at current rates.. the £20 it would have been only a few months ago was bad enough but this is ridiculous...)

I also have the April issue which carried the announcement:

It starts off with some colour pages:

Que Feuilles still has the chocolate drops:

Ascule still has the rose tatoo so presumably also still teleports:

Tweedledee and Tweedledum are definitely still in it:

As are Hiver:

and Zoma:

There's also a brief mention of A-ou and Un-ou and a scene straight out of the original pilot which turns out to be the meeting of Ascule and Que Feuilles:

For some reason Ascule and Que Feuilles are going undercover as waitresses

I don't have a copy of the 2nd chapter yet, but thought I'd mention, as I should have done when it was announced at the end of April, that the second chapter is entitled "Boy meets boy" (「ぼーい・meets・ぼーい」). Also added another new link.

I've caved and ordered June and July's Comp Aces from Amazon. The third chapter's title
has been announced as "Black and White" (「ぶらっく・and・ほわいと」). There's also a sample image from the chapter up in an entry on Yukari Higa's blog - it seems the girls will be visiting a hot spring resort.[/edit]

Slideshow and linkdump below:

An information page has been added to the official site with some more details on the Kiddy girl-and pure (キディ・ガーランド ぴゅあ) manga due to start serialization in the May issue of Comp Ace (due out on the 26th of this month). While the story is to be written by Kimura Hidefumi the artist they have tapped this time is Yukari Higa (緋賀ゆかり), who also drew the Shina Dark manga. The image below is taken from the official site, and I for one think it works very well. She's also included a B&W illustration in this blog entry on her own site, Highway Star. For reference, she also has a pixiv account. Since Tweedledee and Tweedledum are also in the image it's possible their return is still on the cards.

Adding some links that have appeared since I created this entry. As usual I will keep adding anything useful until I start a new entry.

The artist has added a slightly larger version of the above colour illustration to her site.

It isn't worth a new entry (unless anything new crops up I'll start the next one when I have the manga in my hands) but there's a new entry on the official site's information page. Apart from some new art (and it looks like exploding candy is still on the cards) the only thing new that I can make out is the title of the first chapter, "Girl Meets Girl" (がーる・meets・がーる).
