Excel Saga's Rikudou to Start 'Erotic Spectacle' Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Manga creator Koushi Rikudou (Excel Saga) will start his new manga series in the October issue of Shonengahosha's Young Comic Cherry magazine on September 10.
The magazine describes the story of the manga, tentatively titled Kumo no Ue no de Kiss (Kiss Above the Clouds), as an "erotic spectacle." The manga revolves around a boy who meets an older woman over the Internet. As he gets closer to her, he wants to meet her in person, to touch her, and to do naughty things to her.
Rikudou ended his Sarakiel fantasy manga in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Maoh last month. The magazine asked its readers to look foward to Rikudou's next work. Rikudou also ended his gag manga AGEHA this year.
He is also collaborating on the Kōkaku no Pandora -GHOST URN- manga with Ghost in the Shell's Masamune Shirow. That manga is moving from Kadokawa Shoten's discontinued Newtype Ace magazine to the Kadokawa Niconico Ace website.
Rikudou ended Excel Saga in Shonengahosha's Young King Ours magazine in 2011.The manga is currently being released in English by Viz Media with the final volume slated for January. Its anime adaptation was re-licensed by FUNimation after ADV Films, which acquired the title in 2000, shut down in 2009.
