Arina Tanemura Pens New Fudanjuku Manga
posted on by Ko Ransom
This year's 19th issue of Shueisha's Margaret shōjo magazine will feature a new 12-page color manga by Full Moon O Sagashite creator Arina Tanemura on September 5. The manga will be titled "Jitsuroku! Fudanjuku Monogatari," and it follows a previous seven-part manga title on the group drawn by Tanemura last year.
Fudanjuku is actually the male alter ego of the seven-member female idol group Nakano Fujo Sisters (Yatterman). The members of Nakano Fujo Sisters (both as themselves and as Fudanjuku) present themselves as otaku. Fudanjuku leader Yōsuke Shijūin — the alter ego of Nakano Fujo Sisters member Yōko Inui and a self-professed cosplay otaku — confessed an interest in cosplaying as characters from Tanemura's works, and Tanemura decided to draw a manga about the group after attending one of their concerts for the first time.
