Lost in Translation
Manga creator Kazuhiro Fujita announced on Wednesday that the one-shot manga that he is drawing for the Heroes Come Back earthquake charity anthology will be a one-shot of his Ushio & Tora manga. It has been over 16 years since he ended Ushio & Tora's original run.
The Heroes Come Back anthology will have one-shot manga by Takashi Shiina (Zettai Karen Children), Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Silver Spoon), Kazuhiko Shimamoto (The Skull Man, Anime Tenchō) and Ishimori Productions, Fujihiko Hosono (Gallery Fake, Sasuga no Sarutobi), Masami Yuuki (Birdy the Mighty), Sensha Yoshida (Utsurun Desu), and Rumiko Takahashi (Inuyasha, RIN-NE).
The compiled book volume of specially drawn one-shot manga stories will be released next March, with all royalties and proceeds being donated to helping restore the areas devastated by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan.
Fujita's one-shot will also appear in Ushio & Tora's former home, Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, around the end of December. The original manga ran from 1990 to 1996 in Weekly Shonen Sunday with 33 volumes. The manga was adapted into an original video anime series.
