Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is a fantasy manga about a shape-shifting dragon. The manga doesn’t fail to make us laugh effortlessly. The bizarre situations in the story can make the readers giggle continuously.
Kobayashi has unwittingly become the one to receive a dragon’s gratitude. Now she has to house the clumsy dragon-girl named Tohru.
Although Tohru tries her best to help with the house chores, her inexperience with the human world leads to hilarious results.
The Monthly Action magazine announced that a new spinoff manga of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid will be published starting 25th November. The new spinoff is titled Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Fafnir the Recluse.
Nobuyoshi Zamurai will be drawing Fafnir the Recluse.
The central character of the new spinoff is Fafnir, the introverted otaku dragon from the manga.
He values video games, and his hardworking nature is visible when he pulls all-nighters to play games ( although dragons don’t need sleep to function).
Fafnir doesn’t like human interaction much, and this can be a good plot point for the upcoming manga. Various awkward instances can be constructed around him.
We also hope to discover Fafnir’s background, which has been kept a mystery this far.
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid manga received an anime adaptation in January 2017. Both Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed it. The second season of the anime is scheduled for a 2021 release after a break of 3 years.
The manga has two other spinoffs, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life and Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Elma’s Office Lady Diary. The spinoffs started serialization in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
