It’s been revealed that 7-member idol group Fairies will be turned into a manga!
This was announced during Fairies’ release event for their 3rd single, “Beat Generation / No More Distance“, at Ikebukuro Sunshine City.
The manga will have the theme of “dance”, and its story will revolve around junior high school girls, who learn the importance of chasing dreams from Fairies. It will start its serialization in the August 4th issue of manga magazine, Margaret.
Editor-in-chief of Shueisha, Sawano Yuji, decided to make this manga when he heard that dance will be introduced as a compulsory course in junior high schools nationwide. “When I heard the news, I started to feel agonized thinking about whether I could make a dance manga,” he explained. “Fairies, who display wonderful dancing, are perfect as the heroines. I will do my best to make this a manga that will make readers think, ‘dance is fun!’.”
On this day, the girls of Fairies performed four songs including “More Kiss” and “Beat Generation”.
