Anime News Network is reporting that the February 2020 issue of the Shogakukan publication "Ciao", which releases on December 28th (because we all know that print-magazine schedules are weird), will feature the debut of a new Animal Crossing manga series that, going by its description, is based on New Horizons.

The manga will be titled "Atsumare Doubutsu no Mori: Nonbiri Shima Dayori" (according to Anime News Network: "Gather Animal's Forest: Carefree Island News"), and will follow a girl named Hana who's living on a deserted island, rather like players will do in the new game.

The first official promotional image for the manga can be viewed here. Since that's the "Next Issue" page for Ciao, I've also uploaded a copy of the image here.

It would be nice to see this get an official translation, but there's no word yet on whether there'll be one.

Lordy, that's a horrible translation. I would have said "Animal Forest: Come Together: Letters from a Relaxing Island". (The first four words are the Japanese title of AC:NH.)

Previous AC manga have mostly just been 4koma (gag comics), and the neither the name nor the promo image seems especially indicative of anything different, so I'm not particularly enthused. But let's see what it's like.

"Lordy, that's a horrible translation. I would have said "Animal Forest: Come Together: Letters from a Relaxing Island". (The first four words are the Japanese title of AC:NH.)"
Yeah, my Japanese is practically non-existent, and even I could see that it was a bad translation - it's very Google Translate flavoured, isn't it? I couldn't do any better, so I just copied in what the source article said.

"Previous AC manga have mostly just been 4koma (gag comics), and the neither the name nor the promo image seems especially indicative of anything different, so I'm not particularly enthused. But let's see what it's like."
Blimey, I didn't even know that any previous ones existed! I'm still curious about it, though, even if it doesn't look especially substantial.

I never knew there was an Animal Crossing manga before! Hopefully we will be able to receive more info about the game through the manga release.

I would translate the title as, "Let's Gather at Animal Forest: Tidings/Correspondance from a Leisurely Island."

I am a university student in Japan now and taking Advanced Japanese. My goal is to play AC:NH in Japanese when it releases!~

I've been hearing a bit about this manga but I didn't know it was through Ciao! One of their most popular series is "Age 12" and I read the novel version of it a bit.

I'm glad that it's a proper manga and not just a four panel.

I might try to get it while I'm out shopping next time! But honestly I never buy monthly manga magazines, I always wait for it to be a real book. But it might be fun to look through and read a bit. If I get it I'll put some screenshots up online!

And yeah that translation is... unfavorable.

Happy birthday Katie!

Also, I got the manga! Here's a link to where I show two pages of it and a link to a video I made on it: here.

That was very short thanks for sharing!

Interesting that she comes from a regular human world, and finds the clothed tanooki's out-of-place. Makes me wonder if, instead of the Rover sequence at the beginning, if we'll get to see anything happen with the lottery in a human-populated area. That'd be very interesting!

Those two pictures I showed on Twitter was 1/4 of the whole chapter.

We were talking about how it's not a four panel manga but seems like it's going to be progressing at a similar pace.

I wonder how the other manga series started?

StarlitGlitch, thanks so much!~

And thanks for the video! Like you said, I think I will wait until it releases in book form before I pick up a copy! I'm hoping to pick up the new Nintendo Dream magazine on the 21st though!

I'm going to try to pick it up too!

But a few days ago someone asked me to do a volunteer thing on that day, so we'll see if I can pick it up right away or not.

I'm hoping we get some new info! The wait feels extremely hard now because we are so close, but not close enough haha!

I'll try to pick it up then, but the town I'm living in is fairly small. Fingers crossed that they carry it nearby though!
