No.6's Kino Starts Setsuna Graffiti Manga
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's September issue of Kodansha's ARIA magazine debuted a new manga series by No. 6 manga illustrator Hinoki Kino on Monday. The new series, titled Setsuna Graffiti, is a youth story that follows a group of boys whose goal is to become firework technicians. In the start of the story, the protagonist, who is afraid of fire, meets a mysterious boy in a rural town where he lives.
Kino launched the manga adaptation of Atsuko Asano's nine-volume novel series No. 6 in ARIA in 2011 after providing the illustrations for the novels. Kodansha released the ninth and final volume in the manga series in Japan in March.
Asano's No. 6 novels also inspired an 11-episode television anime series in 2011 by BONES. Crunchyroll and The Anime Network both streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in North America in 2012.
