Tokie Komuro, the editor-in-chief of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine, revealed on the publisher's Comic Emon! Online website that Jormungand manga creator Keitarō Takahashi will launch a new series in Sunday GX this spring. Renai Distortion manga creator Sukune Inugami and Seigi Keikan Monju manga creator Hiroki Miyashita will also launch new series in the same magazine this spring.
Takahashi will end Jormungand in the February issue of Sunday GX on January 19. Takahashi launched this manga about a female arms dealer and her accomplices in Sunday GX in 2006, and the studio WHITE FOX (Steins;Gate) is animating the manga for television. Viz Media began releasing Jormungand in North America in 2009, and the company's English edition of the eighth compiled book will ship on January 10.
Update: Inugami's "new series" in Sunday GX will be the return of Renai Distortion itself in the April issue on March 19. Renai Distortion previously ran in Shonengahosha's magazines such as Young King Ours from 1998 to 2006. Thanks, Manga News.
