Law of Ueki's Fukuchi Resumes Anagle Mole Manga After 1-Year Hiatus
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Law of Ueki creator Tsubasa Fukuchi announced on Twitter on Friday that his manga Anagle Mole will return in October. Fukuchi thanked Shogakukan's Sunday editorial department and his fans for not abandoning him during the series' hiatus. Fukuchi did not clarify whether the series would return to Weekly Shonen Sunday or a different magazine. The manga has been on hiatus since September 2012 due to the creator's health. The third compiled volume was released last September.
The action comedy takes place in a world where some people, "Humans," dwell on the surface of the planet while others, "Majin," live underground. Some of the world's underground inhabitants are plotting to invade the above-ground society. In order to understand the lives and behavior of those who live above them, the people who live underground are planning expeditions to the surface.
The story follows a young spy from the underground named Ruchiru. In the manga's first chapter, Ruchiru ventures to the above-ground world, and the people's customs shock him as he interacts with those he meets on his journey.
Weekly Shonen Sunday serialized Fukuchi's The Law of Ueki manga from 2001 to 2004 and the sequel The Law of Ueki + from 2005 to 2007. The manga artist launched the ping pong manga series Takkoku!!! in Shogakukan's monthly Shonen Sunday Super Zōkan spinoff magazine in 2009. Takkoku!!! ended in 2011, and Fukuchi began Anagle Mole a few months later.
