News Basara's Yumi Tamura Starts Iromen Manga Series
posted on 2012-07-29 22:15 EDT
Yumi Tamura will start her newest series Iromen ~Jūnin Toiro~ in the October issue of Shueisha's Cocohana magazine on August 28. Iromen will be a series of manga shorts on the theme of "color." A preview blurb for the series advertises the series as possibly "the industry's first 'color manga'?"
(There are several earlier examples of Japanese manga physically printed in full-color; the one-volume manga Stigma by Saiyuki's Kazuya Minekura got a color release, as did Yuna Kagesaki's Onii-chan Control.)
Iromen ~Jūnin Toiro~ will begin with two shorts in one installments. This will be Tamura's first series in a Shueisha magazine.
Tamura's 1998 manga Basara was inspired a 13-episode anime series. Viz Media released all 27 volumes of the manga in English. Her series Chicago, and Wild Com were also released by Viz Media in North America. Her series Neko Mix Genkitan Toraji still runs in Monthly Flowers magazine.
