1st Kinnikuman Wrestling Manga Returns for Free Online

posted on by Egan Loo
Yudetamago creators to pick up where they left off 24 years ago

Shū Play News, the official website of Shueisha's Weekly Playboy magazine, announced that the creator duo Yudetamago will bring back their original Kinnikuman manga as a free web manga on the site on Monday.

There have been other Kinnikuman manga series such as Kinnikuman II-sei: Kyūkyoku no Chōjin Tag-Hen, which also ran in Shū Play News until last month. However, the two creators of Yudetamago are going back to their first 1979 Kinnikuman storyline and picking up where they last left the story in 1987.

A new Kinnikuman installment will appear on the Shū Play News site every Monday at 10:00 a.m. in Japan (Sunday at 8:00 p.m. EST ). Only one installment at a time will be on the site; the chapters will then be compiled for tankōbon book volumes that will ship next year.

Toy figures of Kinnikuman were imported into the United States under the "M.U.S.C.L.E" brand name in the 1980s. Viz Media then released Takashi Shimada and Yoshinori Nakai's Kinnikuman Nisei - Second Generations manga sequel in North America as Ultimate Muscle: The Kinnikuman Legacy, and 4Kids released the anime version on television. There have been several Kinnikuman television series and films.
