Lollipop Chainsaw Manga Revealed

24 05 2012

In Japan, the buzz machine for upcoming cheerleader zombie slaughtering  simulation Lollipop Chainsaw has reached maximum overdrive.  Not only will the game be released in 2 editions (in sanitized and adults only flavors), it’s also been announced that the ¥10,290 ($130) premium editions will also come with a tissue box cover (for when you get a little too excited from playing the game) a B2 sized poster, and an A3 sized tapestry.  I’ll be honest, even though I work in media I’ve never been able to get my head around sizes like A5, B4, and the like.   I’m constantly buying the wrong sized envelopes because of this.

In a effort to whip fans into a buying ferver, a comic (known as manga in Japan… say it with me: mah-n-ga) has been commissioned to shed light on the characters back story, including how Juliet’s boyfriend Nick looses his head, while throwing in a little fan service on the side.  Debuting in the June 7th issue of über gaming rag Famitsu, I present it here for your viewing pleasure.  Oddly enough, while Famitsu is read left to right, the manga is presented in a right to left format which really sort of messes you up.  There’s no reason to make people stop and change the direction of the magazine they’re reading right in the middle of it.

What do you think?  Does it make you more ferverish than before?
