posted on by Egan Loo
G-Mode's Comic Meteor web manga site announced on Wednesday that Yu Yagami will return to his Those Who Hunt Elves (Elf o Karu Mono-tachi) manga with a new series on January 30.
Those Who Hunt Elves 2 will reunite (pictured from left to right) the elf Celsia Marie Claire with three travelers from Japan: the martial artist Junpei Ryuzoj, the Oscar-winning actress Airi Komiyama, and the military otaku student Ritsuko Inoue. The three had scoured a fantasy world for elves, since undressing elves will reveal the spell they need to return home. This time, they are joined by a mysterious girl (pictured bottom right) who is key to the new story.
Yagami serialized the original Those Who Hunt Elves manga in Monthly Dengeki Comic Gao! magazine from 1994 to 2002. He already created a brief sequel called Those Who Hunt Elves Returns in the same magazine from 2007 to 2008. The original manga also inspired two television anime series.
ADV Manga released part of Those Who Hunt Elves in North America, while ADV Films released the two television anime series. Go! Comi released Yagami's Hikkatsu! manga, and CMX Manga released two other manga by Yagami: Dokkoida?! and Go West!
