posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's 39th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine teased on Monday that Tsutomu Takahashi's NeuN manga series will have an "important announcement" in the magazine's 40th issue on September 3.
Takahashi developed the series from his original one-shot that he published in Weekly Young Magazine in January 2017. He launched the manga as a full series in the magazine in May 2017. Takahashi publishes the manga once a month in the weekly magazine.
Kodansha published the manga's second volume on February 6, and will publish the manga's third volume on September 6.
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 centers around Neun (German for "nine"), the ninth child to carry Hitler's DNA. 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.
