posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine revealed on Wednesday that Yōichi Takahashi's Captain Tsubasa: Rising Sun soccer manga will move to a new Grand Jump supplement titled Captain Tsubasa Magazine, which will launch in spring 2020. The new magazine will focus on the Captain Tsubasa franchise, including manga, games, and interviews.
The manga returned from a hiatus on October 2. The hiatus began in July.
Rising Sun revolves around Tsubasa as he aims to participate in the Olympics as a representative from Japan. Takahashi launched the manga in the magazine in December 2013, and Shueisha shipped the 12th compiled volume in Japan on October 4.
The original soccer manga revolves around 11-year-old Tsubasa Ōzora, a boy who loves soccer and is recognized by his coach Roberto due to his skill of the sport. Tsubasa goes with his coach to Brazil in order to train for the World Cup.
Takahashi's original 37-volume Captain Tsubasa manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1981 to 1988, and it inspired three television anime series, four anime films, several OVAs, and an upcoming stage play. The manga is available in about 20 countries.
