Isobe Isobee Monogatari's Ryō Nakama Draws 2-Chapter 'Unchi Nekonchi' Manga

posted on by Egan Loo

Isobe Isobee Monogatari ~Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo~ manga creator Ryō Nakama ran the first chapter in the two-chapter manga "Unchi Nekonchi" (Poopy Kitty) in the digital service Shonen Jump+ on Tuesday. The four-panel manga centers around Makkii, "a cat who looks like a pile of poop." It follows the cat's comical interactions with its owner's family. The second half of the manga will run in Shonen Jump+ on January 27. Comic Natalie posted more images from the manga.

Nakama originally published the Isobe Isobee Monogatari ~Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo~ manga as a one-shot, then he launched the serialized version of the manga in 2014's 47th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on October 21. Shueisha describes the manga:

A loser samurai—Isobee, who lives in any way a dawdling, slacking life, takes action (sort of) in the city of Edo. Weekly Shonen Jump's gone mad with a new style Ukiyoe Gag Manga!!

The manga inspired a Flash anime:
