Katsuhiro Otomo, best known as the creator of Akira, will begin publishing a new Manga series in Shuiesha's
monthly Ultra Jump magazine. The new series, Orbital Era is his first published Manga in five years.

Previously, all of Otomo's major works were published by Kodansha, this is the first time one of his major works is published bu Shuiesha (First time any of his works are published by Shuiesha?).

Pointing to Shuiesha's close ties with Viz Entertainment's parent company, Shogakukan, and the ever shrinking gap between Japanese and American releases, ICv2 speculates that we may see Orbital Era published by Viz sometime soon.
