A Lucky Star spinoff manga, now titled Konata 31, will make its debut in the magazine’s upcoming issue in the spring of 2023, according to the third edition of Kadokawa’s Mitaina! magazine, which was published on November 18.
The manga’s spinoff about Konata, according to the magazine, will happen 15 years after the first manga. The manga is being drawn by Haruki Hong, while Yoshimizu is credited with the original work.
An expansion of Kagami Yoshimizu’s core Lucky Star manga had begun with the same issue on November 18.
Several photographs from the manga feature in Mitaina! magazine were shared on Twitter, including four-panel comics, voice actress remarks, and several colored images. Yoshimizu was interviewed for the article as well.
Since the manga’s debut in the January 2004 problem of Comptiq, Kadokawa has been a publisher of the Lucky Star series, and also in November 2014, the publisher in Japan issued the ninth collected volume.
Due to a new project that Yoshimizu was preparing, the original manga was placed on hold in 2014. Yoshimizu’s tale of four schoolgirls served as the basis for several spinoff comics, the 2007 television anime Lucky Star, an original video animation (OVA) project, and the 2013 Miyakawa-ke no Kfuku spinoff.
The television show, the OVA, and a portion of the original Lucky Star manga were all distributed in North America by Bandai Entertainment. The anime was originally aired on Funimation and Crunchyroll.
The original artwork for Maesetsu! Opening Act, a Kadokawa original television animation, is also ascribed to Yoshimizu.
