The second issue of Shueisha's Ribon Fantasy Zōkan-gō magazine will ship on October 22 with a new chapter of I.O.N., the first manga series that Arina Tanemura (Full Moon O Sagashite, The Gentlemen's Alliance Cross, Kamikaze Kaitō Jeanne) created. The manga follows Ion, a girl with telekinetic powers. The upcoming one-shot story is the first new I.O.N. chapter in 13 years. Tanemura is not only drawing the 32-page story with a color opening page, but also illustrating the magazine issue's cover.
Shueisha launched Ribon Fantasy Zōkan-gō, a spinoff from the main Ribon magazine, in October of 2009 to publish short fantasy-themed manga stories. The first issue contained Clematica Kutsuten by Mayu Sakai (Rockin' Heaven, Nine Puzzle), and the upcoming second issue will have a new 50-page Clematica Kutsuten story. The second issue will also have Dream Medicine by Ayumi Shiina (Baby Love), a special one-shot spinoff of Zekkyō Gakkyū by Emi Ishikawa, Butterfly Days by Natsumi Ouchi (Aozora Pop), Coji-Coji by Momoko Sakura, Fushigi no Mori no Riru by Megumi Mizusawa (Hime-chan no Ribon), Mō Jū-tachi no Iru Tokoro by Saori Ōoka (Petit Parade!!), Izayoi Masquerade by Konatsu Okano, Miss Kiss! by writer Fuyu Tsuyama (Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri) and artist Tsubaki Nakashima, and others.
