The August issue (on sale on July 4) of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine will feature the launch of the Kuzumoto Sanchi no Yon-Kyōdai manga by Dragonaut - The Resonance artist Satoshi Kinoshita, and the one-shot manga Sonezaki Shinjū by Ichigo 100% (Strawberry 100%) and Hatsukoi Limited creator Mizuki Kawashita. Kuzumoto Sanchi no Yon Kyōdai centers on four brothers who protect and enforce the peace in their town with secret powers. Kinoshita ended his manga adaptation of Dragonaut in Jump Square this past spring.
Kawashita is drawing an one-installment adaptation of Chikamatsu's celebrated Edo-era play Sonezaki Shinjū (The Love Suicides at Sonezaki) in the same issue. The play is based on the real-life tragic romance between a soy sauce shop worker and a brothel courtesan. The issue will also feature a Sonezaki Shinjū poster (pictured at left) drawn by Kawashita. Viz Media is publishing the Strawberry 100% manga that Kawashita drew from 2002 to 2005. Kawashita just ended the Hatsukoi Limited romance comedy manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine last month.
