The May issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine is announcing on Tuesday that the July issue will publish Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist "Prototype" manga as a one-shot in June. Arakawa ended the main Fullmetal Alchemist manga in Monthly Shonen Gangan last June, although she did draw a side story in September. She then launched a new series called Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji) in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine last Wednesday.
Monthly Shonen Gangan will also have a new series from Saki creator Ritz Kobayashi and Bamboo Blade artist Aguri Igarashi, as well as a new original one-shot manga from Working!!/Wagnaria!! creator Karino Takatsu. It will be Takatsu's first appearance in the magazine.
The various new series and one-shot projects are part of the 20th anniversary celebration of Monthly Shonen Gangan.
