posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Manga creator Takako Shimura announced on Friday that she will launch a new manga series in the April issue of Shueisha's Jump X magazine on March 10. Shimura confirmed the series is a sequel to her 2012 "Musume no Iede" (The Daughter's Running-Away) one-shot. The first three pages of the original one-shot can be read for free on Shueisha's "Girls Jump" site.
The manga is an omnibus of stories of various girls that have run away from home. The first chapter of the manga revolves around a girl who ran away from her mother's home after learning that her mother is remarrying. She finds refuge at her father's home.
Fantagraphics is releasing the Wandering Son manga in North America, and the company plans to publish the sixth hardcover volume on January 18.
The manga inspired an 11-episode television anime series from AIC that aired on Fuji-TV's late night Noitamina programming block in 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Sweet Blue Flowers also inspired an 11-episode anime series that Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan. Right Stuf licensed the series in 2012 and released it on DVD last year.
