posted on by Kyle Hallmark
The 51st issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine published Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice) author Haro Aso's new one-shot manga on Monday, titled Kaisha ni Utsu no Shindansho Dashite Kanojo ni wa Chouki Shucchou to Uso Tsuite Ikkagetsu no Tabi ni Deta ("I Got Permission to Leave Work for Depression, Lied to My Girlfriend About Taking a Long Business Trip, and Went on a 1-Month Journey").
The one-shot is about the protagonist's goal of going North on his scooter, and Aso said that the story is "90% a story of my own personal experience." The manga is Aso's first to be published in Young Magazine.
The manga is the seventh one-shot published as part of Weekly Young Magazine's 35th anniversary BULLET project. The project is publishing 35 one-shots over a one-year period.
The same issue also debuted Cherry Nights author Dragon Odawara's new manga Robo-NEET Mitsuo, and also announced that Miito Yasui and Yoshi Mori's Dino Sapiens manga is moving to the spin-off magazine Young Magazine the 3rd, which will publish the next chapter in its next issue on December 4. Additionally, the magazine announced that the third and final volume of Azuma Kazuhiro's π-nyan manga will be available on January 6.
A spin-off manga of Aso's Alice in Borderland, titled Imawa no Michi no Alice (Alice on Borderroad), debuted in Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine in August.
Aso launched the final arc of Alice in Borderland in March. Aso began serializing the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday S (formerly Shonen Sunday Chō) in 2010. The manga switched to Weekly Shonen Sunday on April 8. The manga's 12th, 13th, and 14th volumes shipped with original video anime (OVA) episodes.
