Yuu Watase: New Fushigi Yugi Manga Runs as Self-Contained Chapter
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Yuu Watase, manga creator of Fushigi Yugi and Arata: The Legend, wrote on her blog on Monday that Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine is running her Fushigi Yugi: Byakko Ibun (Fushigi Yugi: Curious Tales of the Byakko) manga as a yomikiri, not a full series, in February. The term can mean a self-contained short story of a few chapters or less. The term usually means a one-shot story, but Monthly Flowers magazine is announcing that the manga "begins" in February.
The March issue of Monthly Flowers announced the new manga on Wednesday, and the manga will begin in the next issue on February 28.
The magazine teases:
"Fushigi Yûgi's Byakko Chapter begins at last!"
"The new work fans have long waited for!! The story of the Priestess of Byakko, as written in the Universe of the Four Gods, finally debuts!!"
Watase previously reported that she would restart her Arata: The Legend manga this year.
