BACK STAGE!! IS COMING OUT AS A MANGA, STARTING THIS WEDNESDAY. Eiki Eiki posted the following to her blog today:
Now, let’s discuss the November issue of Ciel, going on sale the 30th! First, let me apologize: the Love Stage!! manga will be taking a break this month for some “adjustments”—this is because you’ll want to read the continuation in the January issue out in November, released after the 5th volume of the manga! So for the November issue, we’re taking a break.
Also, because we’re also doing manga installments for the DVD extras and such, the page number this time is a little on the short side.
But it’s still worth checking out. For both those who’ve read the novels and those who haven’t.
That’s right! The content included this time will be…BACK STAGE!!
It’s finally starting! This issue, we’ll have Act 0, which acts as a prologue. It’s brand-new material not included in the novels!
We actually thought this through a lot…and have decided to release all of Back Stage!! as a manga! At first, we thought about just starting right from the end of the novels, but there’s three whole novels of material, so if we suddenly started publishing something that started after all of that, there would be a lot of people who wouldn’t know what was going on.
Plus I really want to see Rei and Shougo in their younger years! So we’re going all out and doing the WHOLE THING as a manga! And since we’re going through the effort, we’ve decided to add in some new material we couldn’t put in the novels. And of course post-volume 3 stuff too! (*^.^*)
So please check out both Love Stage!! AND Back Stage!!
Also, this month’s Ciel will include special Love Stage!! material drawn by Koujima Nadzuki-sensei, Itou Youko-san, and Junko! And an interview with Daigo and me (Eiki Eiki)! AND the cover is Shougo and Rei! So please check it out, everyone!
