The July 7 issue of Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu, released on Thursday, launched Hiyokobocchi, a new series by manga creator and designer Ryusuke Hamamoto. The creator is also launching a new manga series called Sayuriri in the August issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine on Monday.
Hiyokobocchi's protagonist is a mysterious girl who was born from an egg. In the first chapter, the girl, who believes she is human, is treated like a monster.
Sayuriri is the serial version of "quip," a one-shot manga that Hamamoto drew in Monthly Comic Rex earlier.
Hamamoto, who also goes by the name "Ryu Moto," designed the characters in the computer-animated Petit Eva - Evangelion@School project (pictured at right) and other spinoffs based on Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series. He also drew Image Comics' Compass comic series and the LR Shōjo Tantei Dan manga. Along with other artists, he contributed to the Comic Artists - Asia and Hon anthologies.
