Manga creator Shinichi Yuhki has confirmed on his website on Sunday that he will be launching a new Kannagi spinoff manga called Kanpachi in the April issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine on Tuesday. Yuhki happens to be the brother of Eri Takenashi, the original creator of Kannagi. Comic Rex serialized Kannagi as well as Yuhki's Uchū Slave Gotōda Risako and Himena Kamena manga.

Takenashi revealed last August that she intends to rest from drawing manga professionally for at least one year. She has been recovering after her debilitating illness and resulting surgery in December of 2008, but she is slowly returning to the routine of normal life. She was able to draw an illustration of Kannagi's lead character Nagi to encourage director Yutaka Yamamoto (Kannagi, Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) last September.

Bandai Entertainment released the anime adaptation of Kannagi in North America last year, and ANN is streaming the anime episodes.
