Brave10's Shimotsuki Draws Manga of Kikuchi's Mephisto
posted on by Egan Loo
Manga creator Kairi Shimotsuki (Brave10, Madness, Devil Kings Basara) will launch her adaptation of Hideyuki Kikuchi's Makai Ishi Mephisto novel series in the second issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene magazine on July 15. The original novels follow Doctor Mephisto, a practitioner of medicine and supernatural magic who has appeared in Kikuchi's other works such as Demon City Shinjuku, Darkside Blues, Demon Palace Babylon, and Yashakiden.
Shimotsuki already launched another manga series, the Brave10 S (Spiral) sequel series (pictured right in above illustration), in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene last week. To celebrate Monthly Comic Gene's second issue and the launch of Shimotsuki's two series, Shimotsuki will hold a signing session at Animate's Ikebukuro store in Tokyo on July 16.
Tokyopop published Shimotsuki's Madness manga and acquired her first Brave10 manga series. (Tokyopop did not publish Brave10 before closing its North American division last month.) Digital Manga Inc. has published some of the novels and manga with appearances by Doctor Mephisto, such as Yashakiden. Udon Entertainment published Shimotsuki's Devil Kings Basara manga.
