The website of Shogakukan's new Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine has announced on Wednesday that Azumanga Daioh manga creator Kiyohiko Azuma will appear in the inaugural issue. The first issue will ship on May 12. Azuma's staff also revealed on his Yotsuba Studio website on Wednesday that he is creating 16 pages of new Azumanga Daioh art for each volume of the revamped 10th anniversary edition that will launch in Japan on June 11. Those three 16-page installments will first debut in Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine between May and July.
ADV Manga published the original manga in North America, while its ADV Films sibling released the anime adaptation. Yen Press has since picked up the rights to publish a new English-language edition, although Publishing Director Kurt Hassler indicated that his company is not releasing a version of Japan's 10th anniversary edition.
