Five Star Stories Manga to Resume in Newtype Magazine
posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter account for the works of manga/anime creator Mamoru Nagano announced on Saturday that he will resume his Five Star Stories manga in the May 2013 issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Newtype magazine on April 10. The story will pick up in the Majestic Stand arc. In addition, production on "some kind of new model that is neither a plastic model nor a garage kit" is in the works.
Nagano launched his science fantasy manga series in Newtype in 1986, although the series has been running intermittently since then. The last regularly compiled book volume, the 12th one, shipped in 2006. To mark the 25th anniversary of the manga last year, Kadokawa reissued the manga series in a "Repeat" edition with previously unpublished art.
Nagano's own Toyspress, Inc. published most of the manga in English. ADV Films released the 1989 anime film adaptation in North America.
