FSS scheduled for May 2013 Newtype

Post by levrin » Sat Dec 15, 2012 6:36 am

From Nagano's twitter, Majestic Stand should be continuing in the May 2013 issue of Newtype, available starting April 10th. Also, a new model or figure or something in the works.

Edit: Figure seems to be some sort of easy-assembly Gothicmade Kaiserin; Nagano is being coy about details.

I imagine that there was a considerable period of post-production for the film whereby Nagano probably wasn't as solicited. If he works at a decent pace, it's quite reasonable to think that he could have gotten a bit of a head start on the manga.

I thought FSS: Designs 4 was supposed to release before the manga started up again...

Please keep us posted. I don't want to miss FSS Designs 4.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

Yeah, I put the pic of that cover on my Facebook page.

Love that new look for the KOG. What version is that anyway?

Supposedly it's just 8 pages with a few illustrations and the Newtype editorial department drumming up support for FSS and GTM.

According to the internet, the illustrations are supposed to be characters that will be important in the upcoming part of the story; a review on Amazon Japan says the only new illustrations aside from the GTM-style KOG are Fatima Ohaine in Biscuit Style and Norgan Siegbau. The others are Haird Grover, LDI-20, and Kaiserin images that have apparently come up before.

Ummm....is that a Fatima or a GTM character?

Built like a Fatima. Crystal and all.

But look at the symbol on her collar; it is one of the national symbols from GTM!

WTF Nagano, WTF?

SPOILER Images from the new manga.



What do you guys think? Brilliance, or has Nagano finally gone off the deep end? (I've been expecting the latter for quite some time now)
