Lost in Translation
This year's 10th issue of Kodansha's Evening magazine has announced on Tuesday that manga creator Yuzo Takada (3x3 Eyes, Blue Seed, Cat Girl Nuku Nuku) will launch his Captain Alice manga in the next issue on May 12. The title character is Arisu Tanigawa, an aircraft pilot who gained extraordinary flying skills under the expert tutelage of her father when she was young — but who also has some issues. Arisu's life changes when she has a chance encounter with a mysterious boy on the same airplane she is piloting.
Dark Horse Comics published 3x3 Eyes (pictured at right) in North America, while ADV Manga had licensed the Cat Girl Nuku Nuku manga. Various North American companies have released many of the anime adaptations of Takada's works, including 3x3 Eyes, Blue Seed, and Nuku Nuku.
