Acclaimed manga creator Moto Hagio launched her two-part adaptation of Yū Nagashima's Jū Jikan (10 Hours) short story in the November issue of Kobunsha's Shōsetsu Hōseki magazine on Saturday. The story centers around sisters in a poor, fatherless family in northern Japan. In addition to the first half of the manga, the magazine published comments by Nagashima.
The two-part story is part of a larger project to have manga creators adapt many of Nagashima's works. Fantagraphics Books published Hagio's A Drunken Dream and Other Stories in North America last year, and it will print her Heart of Thomas (Thomas no Shinzō) manga next August.
