Sensual Phrase Returns in 1-Shot Reincarnation Manga
posted on by Egan Loo
The manager of manga creator Mayu Shinjo announced on Wednesday that Shinjo's Sensual Phrase (Kaikan Phrase) manga will return in September as a one-shot Sensual Phrase Reincarnation manga story that will be enhanced with a dialogue soundtrack. A drama CD will also be sold.
The manga will first be available on the Japanese mobile comic website Comic Cmoa. The voice cast, which has much of the earlier anime's cast, includes Atsuko Enomoto, Masaya Matsukaze, Kenichi Suzumura, Takahiro Sakurai, Shinichiro Miki, Susumu Chiba, Yuuki Ono, and Rieka Yazawa.
A limited first-pressing drama CD will then sold on October 26 with previously unrevealed tracks by the manga's rock band Lucifer and a deluxe memorial book. The 72-page book will contain a 42-page print version of the mobile site's manga, photographs of the real-life Lucifer band, a roundtable discussion between Shinjo and Lucifer, and interviews with the cast. A regular edition of the drama CD will ship without the book or other extras.
Shinjo's original Sensual Phrase manga ran in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi (Shōjo Comic) magazine from 1997 to 2000, and Viz Media published it in North America. A television anime adaptation ran from 1999 to 2000, and the Lucifer visual-kei band was formed in real life specifically to perform theme songs for the anime. The band broke up in January of 2003, but reunited last year to mark the 10th anniversary.
