Kakugeibu! vol.1 releasing today (Umehara, Tokido, Mago are junior highschool girls!)

Tip from Akiki-san (Sako's wife). The first volume of Kakugeibu!, the manga that has Daigo Umehara, Tokido, and Mago turn into a small girl is being released today in Japan.

Kakugeibu! (Kaku Game Bukatsu! or KGB or Fighting Game Club!) is the story about junior highschool girls in Kakugeibu (Fighting Art Club, same sound but different meaning), a school club of fighting games. As seen below, these characters are based on real players.
  • Ume (green hair) is the club's ace player. She's less than 140 cm. and her real name is Koume (can mean "Little Ume"). Her personality sounds exactly like Umehara.
  • Tokito (purple hair) is rich and is the head of the club. She's a daughter of president of a small game company, almost anything in the club belong to her.
  • Mako is in charge of machine maintenance but is also an amateur model. She's Tokito's childhood friend.

Kakugeibu! is a "yonkoma" (4-panel comic) that was first serialized in Arcadia Magazine since last year. Many of yonkoma were later turn into anime and became a hit (like Lucky Star and K-ON!), will this one make it?!

As usual, you can buy this manga from Amazon Japan.
