The Autumn issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ.19 magazine announced on Saturday that Usamaru Furuya is moving his Teiichi no Kuni manga from this magazine to the main Jump Square (Jump SQ.) magazine. The story follows the high school student Teiichi Akaba and his student government struggles at a private boys' school in Shōwa-era Japan.
Furuya launched Teiichi no Kuni in the inaugural issue of Jump SQ.19 last year, and he will resume the manga in the March 2012 issue of Jump Square. The second compiled book volume will ship on December 2. Furuya just ended another manga series, Innosan Shōnen Jūji-gun (Innocent Children's Crusade), earlier this month.
Takatoshi Nakamura will also move his 1/11 soccer manga series from Jump SQ.19 to Jump Square, starting with Jump Square's February 2012 issue.
Furuya made his professional manga debut in 1994 with Palepoli, and Viz and Cadence Books would later publish parts of this manga in the books Secret Comics Japan and Japan Edge, respectively. Viz also published his Short Cuts manga and licensed his Genkaku Picasso. DC Comics' CMX Manga had planned to publish Furuya's 51 Ways to Save Her before shutting down last July. Vertical is publishing Lychee Light Club and Furuya's manga adaptation of Osamu Dazai's acclaimed novel No Longer Human.
