Kadokawa will publish Mamoru Nagano's 13th Five Star Stories manga volume — the first new one in about nine years — on June 10. The volume had been delayed from last fall.
Nagano launched his science fantasy manga series in Newtype in 1986, although the series has been running intermittently since then. The last regularly compiled book volume, the 12th one, shipped in 2006. To mark the 25th anniversary of the manga in 2011, Kadokawa reissued the existing manga volumes in a "Repeat" edition with previously unpublished art.
The manga went on hiatus in 2006 and relaunched in the magazine's May 2013 issue. It went back on hiatus in Spring 2014 as Nagano prepared the 13th volume for print.
Nagano's own Toyspress, Inc. published most of the manga in English. ADV Films released the 1989 anime film adaptation in North America. In 2006, Nagano worked on Hana no Utame Gothicmade, the film that he wrote, designed, storyboarded, and directed himself. The film opened in Japan in 2012.
