posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The December issue of Kodansha's Afternoon magazine is announcing on Friday that Yuki Urushibara's Mushishi manga will be returning to the magazine for a two-chapter special in its January and February issues. Those two issues will ship in Japan on November 25 and December 25, respectively. The announcement also tells readers that there is a new “top secret project” in the works, and tells readers to pay attention to the wraparound jacket band that will go around the upcoming deluxe keepsake edition volumes of the original manga.
The keepsake edition of the original manga is scheduled to begin printing in Japan next month, with the first two volumes shipping on November 21. The third keepsake edition volume will be released on December 20.
Urushibara's manga began in 1995, and finished in Afternoon in 2008. Del Rey published the the manga, and Funimation released Hiroshi Nagahama and Artland's anime adaptation and Katsuhiro Otomo's live-action film version in North America.
