Akira's Otomo Delays New Manga Series

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Manga and anime creator Katsuhiro Ōtomo revealed in an interview with ANN that his upcoming manga series has been delayed. The series, his first long one since Akira, was tentatively planned for this fall.

The April 15 issue of Magazine House's Brutus magazine reported that the manga's story will take place in the Meiji era and that Otomo will be producing the series singlehandedly for Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine. Otomo confirmed that he still plans to draw the manga without assistants.

However, Otomo stated in his interview that the target audience may be older than he initially planned, so publishing the series in Weekly Shonen Sunday is no longer definite.
