Junji Ito is launching his Ma no Kakera (The Shard of Evil) manga series in the inaugural issue of The Asahi Shimbun Company's revived Nemuki magazine on April 13. The first chapter, "Futon," will run eight pages long.
An anime adaptation of his 2001 Gyo manga debuted last February with animation by ufotable. Viz Media published the two volumes of the original manga in North America. Viz and ComicsOne also published Ito's Uzumaki and Tomie manga, respectively, and both inspired live-action horror films.
Nemuki magazine ceased publication in December, but The Asahi Shimbun Company announced that it will launch a revived magazine in April.
