Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The June issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine revealed on Saturday that Minari Endo's fantasy action manga Hatenkō Yūgi will be returning from its hiatus beginning in the magazine's next issue in May. The magazine will feature a color page to celebrate the manga's return after over a year. The manga has been on hiatus since February of last year.
In Hatenkō Yūgi's story, the young teen Rahzel Anadis meets the handsome albino man Alzeid, who only cares about avenging his father's death. After Rahzel swears to him to make his life more fun and meet with their companion Baroqueheat the playboy, the three encounter secrets and mysteries that change their lives forever. Not even the travelers themselves know who they truly are.
Endo began the manga in 1999, and Ichijinsha released the 13th volume of the manga in Japan in March of last year. Tokyopop licensed the manga under the title Dazzle, and released 10 volumes of the manga before closing its North American publishing operations in 2011. A 10-episode anime adaptation aired in Japan in 2008. Another manga by Endo, Maria Holic, also inspired two teleivsion anime series.
