Pretear's Sato, Macross' Kawamori Work on Robot Manga
posted on by Egan Loo
On September 30, the November issue of Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine will launch Mortal Metal, a "new-generation robot" manga series from creator/supervisor Junichi Sato (Pretear, Tamayura, Kaleido Star) and mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Armored Core, Cyber Formula). Ryūichi Sadamatsu is drawing the actual manga, and Kawamori's anime studio Satelight is collaborating on the production. The announcement is being made in the October issue of the magazine on Tuesday.
The story is set in a new era where all the companies compete to develop Vesu, the next-generation main strategic weapon. While the world awaits the innovative technology, rumors begin to spread of a Vesu that has been taken over by the dead.
Shōichi Furumi will also launch the Baberuhaimu no Shōnin (The Merchant of Babelheim) manga in the same November issue of Monthly Comic Blade.
