News Bloody Monday's Megumi Launches Acma:Game Manga
posted on 2013-04-06 11:15 EDT
This year's 18th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine announced on Wednesday that manga artist Kōji Megumi and story creator Meebu will launch a new series called Acma:Game (pictured center right) in the next issue on April 10. The manga centers around Teruaki Oda, a high school senior gifted in smarts, looks, and money. This seemingly perfect scion of Japan's powerful Oda Group gets caught in a nightmarish game with the son of the Belmont mafia family's boss.
Megumi happens to be the older sister of Dojin Work manga creator Hiroyuki. Hiroyuki is also serializing the four-panel comedy manga Aho Girl (Stupid Girl, pictured far right) in Weekly Shonen Magazine. It is unusual for a brother and a sister to create manga in the same magazine; the last major example of this was when Tetsuya Chiba (Ashita no Joe) and his younger brother Tarō Nami serialized Ashita Tenki ni Naare and Hakkeyoi, respectively, in Weekly Shonen Magazine in the 1990s.
