Volume 3 spinoff manga about team Seidou taking care of cat ship will premiere on February 17
Kodoani.com – Second volume of side story manga Daiya no C (Cat of Diamond) author Yuki Okada revealed last Friday that the manga will end with its third volume on February 17.
The humorous spin-off to Yūji Terajima’s Ace of Diamond (Daiya no A) manga focuses on the residents of the Seidou dormitory who find themselves tending to a cat. The trouble came when they had to learn how to feed it, bathe it and most importantly prevent anyone from finding out they were taking care of the pet against the hostel’s regulations.
Okada, Terajima’s wife, launched the manga in Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket app on January 12.
Terajima launched the Ace of Diamond manga in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006. He ended the manga’s first season in January 2015, and Kodansha has published 47 volumes for the series. Terajima then released Ace of Diamond Act II in August 2015. The 32nd volume compiled for Act II was published last Friday. The fourth and fifth manga volumes were bundled with the anime DVD in 2016.
The main manga adaptation for a television anime premiered in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the 75-episode series as it aired in Japan. Ace of Diamond: The second season premiered in April 2015 with 51 episodes. Ace of Diamond Act II adapted a television anime adaptation that premiered in April 2019. The series has 52 episodes.
The manga won the shōnen category of the 34th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2010.
