GA's Kiyuduki to Resume Shoulder a Coffin, Kuro Manga

posted on by Egan Loo
Satoko Kiyuduki's fantasy travel manga has been on hiatus since 2009

The wraparound jacket band on the fourth volume of Satoko Kiyuduki's GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class manga announced that Kiyuduki will resume her Shoulder a Coffin, Kuro (Hitsugi Katsugi no Kuro. - Kaichū Tabi no Wa) manga on February 9, 2012. In addition, the third Shoulder a Coffin, Kuro book volume will ship in Japan on January 27 — nearly five years after the second volume shipped in 2007.

The story follows Kuro, a tomboy girl who dresses in black and carries a coffin on her back. She goes on journey to find a witch with a bat named Zen and other companions, and the travelers have various adventures on the way. The manga has been on hiatus from Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine since 2009.

Yen Press publishes both Shoulder a Coffin, Kuro and GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class in North America. GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class inspired an television anime series in 2009.
