The Splatoon manga, which started in CoroCoro Magazine in 2015, is finally coming to the west courtesy of VIZ Media.

The print-only manga is the story of Turf Wars popularizing in Inkopolis. The Blue Team, made of inklngs Goggles, Headphones, Glasses, and Knit-Cap, are underdogs in the Turf Wars competition, but plan to make it up with guts and moxy and probably a creative strategy or two. The manga is written and drawn by Sankichi Hinodeya, who created the first issue as a fan before it was optioned by CoroCoro and Nintendo.

The first volume of the manga is releasing on December 12 in a book store near you.

Our Take
The manga was pretty good from what I read of it. It's a pretty typical sports manga with some interesting Splatoon hooks.
