This year's sixth issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine revealed on Saturday that Tsutomu Takahashi (Ice Blade) will draw a one-shot manga, titled "NeuN 9," in the seventh issue, which ships on January 16.
The manga takes place in 1940 Germany under the Nazi regime, when SS Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler commanded a top secret mission in Wewelsburg, under the Führer. The story is a formative coming-of-age story of a boy and a man during that period.
Tokyopop published Takahashi's Jiraishin detective action manga, under the title Ice Blade, as one of the company's first titles in North America. Takahashi serialized a sequel called Jiraishin diablo before ending the series in Good! Afternoon magazine in 2011. His Skyhigh manga was adapted into a live-action film, which Media Blasters released under its Tokyo Shock label in 2005.
Takahashi launched the supernatural manga Hito Hitori Futari in 2011 and ended the series in August 2014. He launched the manga Zankyō in Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior in May 2015. Takahashi also launched a boxing manga titled Black Box in Monthly Afternoon magazine in June 2015. Takahashi launched his Yorishiroshi manga in Weekly Young Magazine in August 2015.
