Aki Sora's Masahiro Itosugi to Launch Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
This year's fifth issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal Arashi magazine announced (note: link may not be safe for work) on Friday that Aki Sora creator Masahiro Itosugi will launch a new manga series titled ALL I NEED in the next issue on May 2.
Itosugi's six-volume adult romance manga Aki Sora about a forbidden relationship between siblings has received two original video animation adaptations. North American anime distributor Media Blasters announced in July that it acquired the rights to the second adaptation, Aki Sora: Yume no Naka.
The fifth issue of Young Animal Arashi also re-launched Suu Minazuki's (Heaven's Lost Property/Sora no Otoshimono) Gō-Dere Bishōjo Nagihara Sora manga on Friday. The series was previously published in special issues of Young Animal Island beginning in 2008, and the publisher released two compiled volumes in 2011 and 2012.
The new serialization of Minazuki's erotic comedy will feature a new female character with glasses and braided hair. The original manga revolved around Shōta Yamakawa, a boy whose favorite manga is called "Tama x Kiss." One day Shōta's favorite character from that manga, Sora Nagahiara, comes to life in front of him, and her personality is not what he expected.
Minazuki launched Heaven's Lost Property in Monthly Shonen Ace in 2007 and it is still ongoing. The 17th volume is slated for release in Japan on April 26. The story was adapted into two television anime series, an original anime video, and the Heaven's Lost Property the Movie: The Angeloid of Clockwork film. FUNimation has released all the adaptations in North America. A third season was green-lit last year.
