This year's eighth issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine has announced on Friday that four new titles will launch in the magazine's next four issues. Manga creator Atsushi Suzumi (Venus versus Virus, Haridama Magical Cram School, Amefurashi) will start a "dreamy action comedy" called Nightmare Go Round in the ninth issue on April 17. In the story, a girl named Hiroka and a friend sneak into an abandoned amusement park and put their lives on the line.
Hitohira creator Izumi Kirihara will launch Akira to Hiyori in the 10th issue on May 1. King of Thorn's Yuji Iwahara will start a manga whose title has yet to be announced in the 11th issue on May 15, and Yuki Azuma (Dark Blue, Cheer up!, Mama wa Dōkyūsei) will start another unnamed manga in the 12th issue on June 5.
Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the Venus Versus Virus manga in North America, while Del Rey publishes Haridama Magical Cram School and Amefurashi. Aurora Publishing released Hitohira, and Tokyopop released the sixth volume of King of Thorn last November.
