Author handling story, art for "thrilling mystery" manga in Monthly Comic Rex mag

The June issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine began serialization on Shutaro Yamada's (Read or Die) newest manga series last Friday. Yamada is handling both the art and the story for the new series, which is titled Rain Code.

The "thrilling mystery story" takes place in a town that is famous for its plentiful rainfall. In the story, Tamaki Amemiya is the eccentric son of a distinguished family. He meets a mysterious woman calling herself "Chiyako" who mentions the Rain Code mystery and then drags Tamaki into a fight.

Viz Media published all four volumes of Yamada's and Hideyuki Kurata's Read or Die manga in 2006 and ComicsOne published Yamada's Loan Wolf manga.

The same issue of Monthly Comic Rex also started serialization on Koroha Kiritomo's Rengoku no Mikoto and Junichi Hamada's The Wings of Battle Flag -Senki no Tsubasa- manga.
