It was announced that the original anime "Mawaru Penguindrum" is being adapted into manga and is serialized in the monthly manga magazine "Gekkan Comic Birz", starting from the July issue that is published on May 30th. The next chapter will be released in the September issue to be published on July 30th. The manga is drawn by Shibata Isuzu.

The anime was aired in 2011 from July to September.

Mawaru Penguindrum on MAL
Modified by Naruleach, Oct 6, 2013 6:00 PM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

WOW, I may be checking it out, Penguindrum was definitely amazing.
Stop the sequels high-ranking stupidity.
Group franchises in Top Anime page.
Because Gintama is just "one" anime and not 5.

About time this gets a manga to complete the trio novel-manga-anime :) I wonder why it takes them a long time to do it.

Reverse adaptations don't sell well. Rightly so.
My Twitter
My Tumblr - Anime Blogging on current airing season as I watch them.
My deviantArt - Anime FanArts.

Please leave replies on my profile page, as I am unlikely to see them otherwise. Thanks.

Mm, haven't read anything by the artist, so hopefully the art will be decent enough for me to check it out.

Yes, this is always the case for many magazine publication in Japan. The issue number is always the month after.

Wow, I'd actually want to read it, anime was awesome. Though I'm not sure if it'll make a good manga story, since it was pretty... unique, I guess?

That was my first thought as well, but admittedly, it would be quite ridiculous to have a second season after such ending.
Since I loved the anime, I'll surely give the manga a try!
The only thing you can rely on is that you can't rely on anything.

Not really much to expand on since the anime covered everything so well, but i'm a big fan so i'll try it nevertheless.
